This is basically a fish camp, but it's as nice as any of the other campgrounds in the area. Everyone was friendly, the camp host had a campfire for everyone every night, a local guide gave us some fish and it has a stunning view of the river. My only complaint would be that there is not much space to walk your dog. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is exactly what its advertised to be, a fish camp for Klamath River salmon fishing, about 1/4 mile from the mouth of the Klamath River. We arrived a few weeks ahead of the salmon run and pretty much had the campground to ourselves. I'm told during the fishing season the place is packed. From the look of the layout, a full campground would be very crowded. Our stay was very pleasant. We had a riverside site with a nice view of the river. No fire pits were available on the site; however, a community firepit on a deck overlooking the river was available. The staff provided the firewood and started a fire each evening. The campground looked a little rough, but I think the staff was starting to tidy up for busy season. Their advertising states cable TV; however, we were told the entire town lost its cable provider. Not a big deal to me, but maybe to someone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We LOVE staying here when passing through for a one night stay or for a few nights stay. All staff and very friendly and always willing to help no matter what the problem. We stay at the back of the park next to the river and don't hear any of the traffic noise from 101. This Resort has a boat launch and fish cleaning area. The wild life is abundant, during our last stay I got plenty of pictures of a mother Otter and her baby resting on their dock, Osprey, Dolphin and Bald Eagle. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Grassed, open, and located beside the Klamath River. This is normally a fishing campground, but the area is not busy during this time. The campground host were helpful and lots of pamphlets on the area are provided. The Wi-Fi was slow and did not always work. The host indicated that the booster was down. The sunset is beautiful at the campground and we did not hear the highway from our site near the river. Picnic tables are provided. The sites are on the grass. The showers were hot, but small and not the cleanest. The rate shown is with a Good Sam /AAA discount. Great location for visiting Redwood NP. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an open park with lots of room for all sized rigs, right on the Klamath river. Our spot had large shade trees and a picnic table. No cable TV anywhere in this area, but fair Wi-Fi and open sky good for satellite. The staff was friendly and very helpful, even making a nightly camp fire on the rivers edge complete with fire pit and benches. There is no AT&T cell service in most of the northern CA coast, Verizon dominates. The manager graciously let us use her cell phone on several occasions to handle a family issue back home, can't say how helpful that was in making our trip stress free. As with most RV parks on a river, this one has a boat dock and fish cleaning facility. Laundry and restrooms were clean and easy access, even a club house with pool table. Close to the Big Redwoods, Trees of Mystery, well worth seeing, and Crescent City about 45 minute scenic drive North. This park was so beautiful it will be our first choice next trip that way. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here as an overnight stop and found it to be a pretty much typical fishing camp. Most all the guests are here for the fishing. There are also several long term guests. The roads are gravel and the sites are grass and fairly level. Utilities worked well with the exception of no TV [cable or OTA] and the Wi-Fi was slow. The pull through sites in the middle of the park alternate directions so your sharing a table with your neighbor. The sites are kind of tight for big rigs to get into, and pretty narrow. Its located on a river but only 3-4 sites are waterfront. There is a community fire pit one the river and a floating dock for small boats. Fairly well maintained but could use a make over. They are a passport America and camp club member but they don't honor the discount during the summer months. AT&T dosen't work nor did our Verizon air card. The Verizon phone did work. No grocery stores nearby and only a couple of restaurants. We did enjoy a nice steak at the Steelhead Lodge which is a few miles south. To sum it up, its an OK park for a stopover if your not 40' or over and it would be great for a fisherman. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Chinook RV Resort is strategically located,right on the Klamath River, about 1/4 mile from the mouth of the river, across from an island and from part of the Redwoods National Park. The Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park is south of Klamath and Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park is north. It's a quiet park, where the staff are very accommodating. Every night the staff prepares a fire in the ring on the deck overlooking the river. There is no longer cable TV. Apparently the cable company pulled out of Klamath. However, with most of the sites out in the open, a satellite dish gets great reception. Speaking of reception, there is little, if any, AT&T phone signal in Klamath, but Verizon is strong. You have to go north about 20 miles to Crescent City to get AT&T phone reception. The other utilities in the RV park are excellent. There is a tackle shop and fish cleaning facilities close to the river's edge. We wouldn't hesitate to return to Chinook. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Chinook RV Resort is an outstanding home base for exploring all the local entertainment and recreational opportunities. They have boat rentals, boat launching for 14' and smaller boats and boat docks. Right on the Klamath River one can watch the river drift by, watch the occasional black bear, bald eagle, seal, otter and osprey play in and around the river’s edge. Their recreation room has a TV, high-speed internet computer, pool table, free take/exchange library and wood burning stove to warm you. The community fire pit is a great place to watch the sun set, talk and exchange stories with other guests. They even have an on-site kayak guide and kayak rentals. High-speed satellite internet keeps you connected and full hook-ups with 50 amp power pedestals allows you all the comfort of home. The owner is your host, lives on-site at Chinook year round and is a wealth of information. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here for a week. The only bad thing about it is that the only cell phones that work, is Verizon. Picked up a prepaid and solved the problem. Great place to view the river and ocean along with Trees of Mystery. Sites are all grass but pretty level. Sea Lions come and visit off the dock. Take the Klamath River Jet Boat tour if you can. Pretty cool place to see bears, osprey, seals, sea lion and we even saw a bald eagle. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We spent 2 weeks at Chinook and except for some rainy weather they have no control over, we really enjoyed our time. Sites are grassy, level and all utilities are good and recently updated. Showers were adequate and clean but outdated. This is a peaceful place to relax and rejuvenate. There are some attractions related to the redwoods close, as is the ocean. Would be a good idea to be stocked up when you arrive as the closest full service stores are 23 miles away in Crescent City. Don't look for hot tubs, pool or entertainment for kids. This is not the purpose of this park. Hard working workampers everyday were getting docks ready to put in the river for fishing season. About 6 pm several evenings, three seals came up the river by the campground and put on quite a show for us. Our Verizon air card was strong so did not try park Wi-Fi. One thing to note, we have T-Mobile phones and had no signal unless we went to Crescent City. Neighbor had AT&T and no service. Assuming Verizon only cell service. We would return in a heartbeat. Rate reflects PassPort America. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The Chinook RV Resort has all grass sites. The sites lining the center of the park are pull through, and the outer areas are back-in. I would classify that there are only two river-side sites. We were in site #36 and although not a river-side site, it was a spectacular view. There was a gravel roadway that separated us from the river. We toured the other CG's in the area and I would return to Chinook RV Resort. The price reflects a Passport America rate at $12.50 a night. The boat dock is indeed laid out in the camp ground and is close to being refurbished. It was being worked on every day that we were here. We stayed in a motorhome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is between highway 101 and the bank of the Klamath River just before the river makes its final turn and empties into the Pacific Ocean. We had the best site in the park, #36, just a few feet from the riverbank. The interior roads are packed gravel and each site is grass. The free Wi-Fi reached out to the individual sites but was slow. This is a great place to visit Redwood National Park. Also nearby is Trees of Mystery and Sky Trail, an interesting walk and tram ride through a Pacific Northwest forest. And don’t miss the Klamath River Overlook which provides a grand view of the Pacific Ocean and the mouth of the Klamath River. We spotted whales from there on two different days. I would have rated this park an 8 if it were not for a significant problem. The park used to have boat dock which can be seen in photos on the park’s web page. For some reason, probably maintenance, the floating dock has been disassembled and removed from the water and stored ashore throughout the campground. This has created an unsightly mess and may account for the low occupancy rate while we were here. It is possible that the dock may be back in the water by summer. Even with these shortcomings, this park is well worth the Passport America rate of $13.50 a day. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Right on the Klamath River, the site we had was a large pull through, grassy site. It had recently rained a lot and the ground was very wet. The view from the site was fantastic. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We would return here in a heartbeat. Our rate reflected Passport America rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly staff. We had a pull through site right beside the Klamath river. It was grassed and level and despite recent rain was not muddy. Wi-Fi was fine but cable reception was poor. Very quiet spot. The laundry had out of order machines. Restrooms and showers were clean. We would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a last minute change that we made after a bad experience elsewhere. It was a wonderful surprise. Small and neat, the grass sites were big enough for us, although the interior roads were slightly narrow and forced a bit of extra planning when maneuvering for departure. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and suggested a very good restaurant for us. We couldn't connect to the Internet at all, but that seems to be our issue not theirs. TV channels were snowy but some were usable. All other hookups were good. Laundry had 3 washers and two large dryers, but one of each was inoperative. Even though it's close to Hwy 101, the site is pretty tranquil and gave us a great base for exploring the beauty of the area. Recommended overall. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Absolutely the best and most enjoyable we have had. Great location on the river and close to the ocean. Lots to see and do. Great people and they really wanted you to feel at home. Will return many more times. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very nice park the staff was very friendly and helpful. The recreation room was wonderful. This park had a nice view of the Klamath River. We wished we could have spent more time here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Price reflects Passport America. It is off season and we were the only ones in the campground other than the permanents. Just a basic park. Wi-Fi was down temporary said the yellowed sign in the front door! I see this as being an OK park in season to do the weekend fishing trip with the kids and family. Cable TV had plenty of channels but many were fuzzy. We parked in site 36 closest to the lake and best view, but furthest from the office and rec room (didn't check out). I can see that if it rained a lot you may could get stuck! They clearly spent more money on the attractive website then on the park! Just an OK place. Grass site, fairly large and long. Well worth our money for one nights stay. A strong 30 amp electric (held 2 small heaters, and microwave at the same time!), good water pressure @ 55 psi. I would stay again at this price. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is no frills but it's so cool to be able to pull straight in and face the Klamath River while watching the seals, boats and salmon float or swim by. The bathrooms,while old, were in excellent shape and clean, the hosts were wonderful and informative and the whale watching from the north hill of the mouth of the Klamath was awesome! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent park right on the river. It is fresh and clean. Looked out the front window at the river and natural area across from it. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The seasonal guests are quite nice also. Good fishing and close to the Redwoods. There is a little noise from 101, but not much. Each site has full hookups and a grassy area with a picnic table. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After reading the previous reviews we decided to spend a couple of days at this park; it is exactly as described in the reviews. It was a good value; we used the Passport America discount. Very helpful and accommodating staff; they were able to make our requests happen. Our 40 foot Monaco fit OK into the space provided. We would return or recommend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great stop over spot to see the redwoods and visit Mystery of the Tree's. Managers were friendly, site was adequate for my 36' RV. No TV reception or cable, no WiFi, so bring some DVDs or use your satellite. Fish camp style with lots of small boats and seasonals. There are beautiful river views but it was cold with lot of sea fog even in August. Nothing in the campground for kids or activities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Passport America rate accepted for four nights. What a steal for such a beautiful setting right on the Klamath River. Large, big-rig friendly level gravel sites, all with a direct view of the river. Super friendly host invited us to informal potluck and fish fry which seems to be a weekly tradition. Down home kind of place with lovely views. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had originally intended to stay at another campground in the same general area but saw a sign out front of this one - $15 full hook-ups. We pulled in and found that the sites were paved versus grass where we were going to stay, and we got a pull in site right on the river. Good power and plenty of water pressure. We have Directv and an aircard so the lack of cable TV or WiFi wasn't a problem for us. I would like to rate it higher, but that doesn't leave any room on the scale for parks with more amenities. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here two nights on a Passport America rate of $15.00 per night. We had a pull-through site with full hookups. The RV Park is right on the Klamath River and has a boat dock for fishing. The location is a good one for siteseeing the redwoods. Be sure to go north to Jeremiah Smith Redwood Park and hike across the river to the Stout Redwood Grove where part of Star Wars was filmed. It's amazing! We also did the Mystery Trees, which is a worthwhile redwood forest tourist attraction. Many RV'ers stay here as long as a month as there is fishing and siteseeing abound. We would have given this park a higher rating except that is was right on hwy 101 and they did not have a lot of amenities. No store for minor purchases like ice or propane. They did have a laundry room and a restroom. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is FHU 30 amp with Passport America discount. Paved roads and pads are narrow, but adequate in an open setting allowing for good satellite reception. Both pull-through and river-front sites available. Located between Hwy 101 and the Klamath River, it was a good value for the money. We stayed two nights, and would certainly stay again if in the area and we needed to overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent night here and it was very peaceful. There is nice spacing between sites and if you are luck you can get a river view site. I did not give this place an 8 because there was no handicap access at all nor is any even considered. The toilet stalls were wooden and very small. There is no grab rail at all. The showers offer little privacy and the one I used had a torn shower curtain that almost rendered it useless. Good water flow, though. The laundry was small but ok. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here early off-season and there were only about four campers, and in response to the basic nature of the park, management said "This is not a resort," but we were very pleased with the park overall. The park is set up so that a motorhome can nose-in to the river (right on the bank) and we awakened each morning to birds on the water and in the shrubs, fog lifting off the water, sunsets at night and a general sense of tranquillity not to be expected right on Hwy 101. The facilities are old, but very clean, with plenty of hot water. The cable was spotty, but we used a satellite so only used local news in the evening. Management ("Bob") was very friendly and allowed us to pick any of the paved spaces we wished, even allowed us to move to a second "better" space. Lots of beauty to visit in the area. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean park with level paved sites, many are pull throughs. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The sites are easy in and easy out. Park is on the Klamath River and has boat docks available. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pretty park on grass with gravel roads. A bit difficult to find and when we called for directions, there was a lot of confusion and very little correct information. Crowded entrance if more than one RV coming in at a time. Nice enough people but not knowledgeable. After a long check-in (15-20 minutes) we found our sewer was full. It took 45 minutes before they decided if they could fix it or if they would move us. Very confused about what sites, if any, were open. Sewer finally fixed so we could set up. Fisherman apparently love this area, lots of campers and boaters. Sites are large, plenty of space between. In addition, all the utilities are arranged so that one camper is not looking at the other camper's utilities. Every other RV parks the opposite direction. Picnic tables at every site. This area is VERY remote. Super markets and other conveniences are 20 miles away so stock up before you come. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love Kamp Klamath on a Saturday night. Their salmon BBQ and jam session are wonderful. The staff is friendly and helpful. This is by no means a fancy park, but it is in a lovely area and serves our needs perfectly. We paid full price one night and Passport America half price another. Well worth the short drive off Highway 101 to this great, quiet CG. Be sure to include a Saturday in your stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this Campground 2 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. We returned this year and found the Log Cabin had burned down and there are plans to replace it. The team was as friendly as ever. The BBQ on Saturday night is outstanding. The Wi-Fi was not the best but Verizon works very well. There is no cable but if you have a Direct TV receiver, there are antennas available. Mounted Satellite antennas will work in sites not blocked by trees. Overall, this was a great campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Found this campground on Passport America's website (price reflects 50% off). We did not know what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. Small friendly park in a forest-like setting. Mostly back in sites with a couple pull-throughs on one side of the camp ground and remote tent/RV camping on the other side. The host was great, he found an extra dish receiver for us and was able to hook us up with over 100 channels on Direct TV. The Wi-Fi was spotty (off and on) and was somewhat usable. There is no cell phone service with AT&T but Verizon had a tower nearby providing an excellent signal. The log cabin clubhouse recently burnt down and according to the manager will be rebuilt soon, but don't let this deter you. The 3 day weekend we spent there was fabulous. The fresh caught salmon dinner on Saturday night is the best I've ever had. Live entertainment was awesome. This park may not be for everyone, 38 foot plus motorhomes will find it difficult to maneuver. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The access to this park is horrible for a big rig. I am rating this poor because after talking with the owner, and telling him what we were looking for, he said he had plenty of room. Upon arrival it looked like Sanford and Sons Lot, with old vehicles, mobile homes, and junk spread around where "campsites" where. There is camping in the trees, but they did not look like anything well thought out, or easy to navigate with my rig, or for that matter anything over 24 ft. We did not stay, and moved on
. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you are looking for a 5 star resort, this is not the place. However, if you are looking for a nice friendly, clean place to stay: this is definitely the place to be. We stayed here using the Camp Club USA discount. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. They even had chickens in the park and gave us fresh eggs everyday. The sites could be a little tight for big rigs, but I wouldn't let that stop you. It is a great spot for visiting the redwoods and Crescent City. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Those rating this park with 10's need to get out and travel more. Not to say this park was bad, it just doesn't deserve 10's. All sites were back in (that I saw, maybe they were hiding). The road is a little skinny, so even with our 25ft TT backing in was a pain. (disclaimer: my skills aren't the best) All the hookups were at the back, running along a short fence. I had to stretch the sewer hose almost it's entire length. On our site, the water connection was sticking maybe 4 inches out of the ground, and was angled down. I had to dig a little hole around it to keep the water hose from kinking. Not all sites were like this though. Other than that, this park was fine. Quiet and off the highway, but easy to get to. It's near the "Coastal Drive". Staff was really nice. The lady offered us some extra tomtatos and eggs from the garden We came in late, and he showed is to out site, and said we could settle up in the morning. Rate is the Passport American rate. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We've stayed here before, but we were a little disappointed this time. The bathrooms have continued to deteriorate, they're OK, but just barely. The sewer connections on the shady lower meadow area are hard to get to and are raised up a little too high. The management told us that the Coastal Commission is making it hard for the RV park to upgrade the sewage system. The on-site manager is a great guy, really trying his best. We ended up camping on the sunny "parking lot" just to the east of the office, near some "work campers" who were a little noisy. But as always, the location can't be beat, it is off the highway, near the beach and near the redwoods. We will probably stay here again, the other alternatives in the area, while more well-maintained, are not as rustic or as well-located. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly staff, nice family oriented facilities and a wonderful Wed and Sat night BBQ - salmon and chicken with live entertainment. Enjoyed our stay and will definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our recent 8 night stay. This place is remarkable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The natural beauty surrounding the park is incredible. We will definitely be staying here again and recommend Kamp Klamath to our friends. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 10 / 10 ]
This is a very nice, rustic park with a very friendly and helpful staff. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We spent a week here and were very pleased with our experience. At first sight it may appear a bit rustic,after the first day this became part of the appeal. The store is well stocked and the staff are very friendly and helpful with any need. The Saturday night salmon barbecue was the best meal we had all week. For the fishermen the staff can give you any type of advice you may need, most helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Don't believe everything you read on websites. We booked in advance for a week, but left after 1 night. They kept an extra day's rate as a cancellation fee, but we had to plead family emergency to get it. This place is pathetic. The laundry facilities were so filthy that they were unusable. There were several very old and shoddy campers everywhere, the "lawns" were little sod carpets in the dirt and were filthy. Ours had leftovers from a previous customer's dog. We stayed one night because we were exhausted, and we awoke to the sight of several vehicles being mechanically maintained on the grounds. The river was quite a distance away. We didn't stay to "enjoy" the other facilities. Just terrible. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here on our way to Brookings, Oregon. I had made reservations for 2 nights but wished we had just kept going on to Brookings. The location was great but the campground left a lot to be desired. The woman that checked me in was smoking at the front desk and seemed as though I was more of a bother. When they showed us the site they were going to put us in we chose to go to another site without sewer hookups so that we could have a bit of space. The neighbors slideout would have been almost over our picnic table! The website gives the impression that there were all kinds of activities, this is untrue. I heard that the bbq was good on Saturday night but they did not have any of the golf/horseshoe/badminton or volleyball set up. When we asked about them we were told that they weren't "set up". The laundry facilities were broken down so they referred us to a laundromat in Klammath that was dirty and most of the machines were broken. We will visit the area again but will choose another campground for our stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have RV'ed for over 30 years and have traveled the breath and length of USA, plus Mexico, Canada and Alaska. This is the first review we have ever written. Kamp Klamath gets the Blue Ribbon for having the worst and filthiest restrooms, and showers ever. Kamp Klamath also get the Silver Cup for the best mis-leading web site. To quote from it's copy, "On the quiet shore of the Klamath river." Thats a joke, the river is over a half mile walk away. If the tide is out you may be able to get past all the tall weeds and see it. Due to the web site and talking to the owner early in the year we made a big mistake: we paid for two months in advance. After the first two days we knew we had made a huge mistake. We left four messages at the front desk so we could cancel at least one month and get a refund, but he never did call us back. We would have liked to just leave and go elsewhere but we are retired and had already spent our money. To let you know how bad Kamp Klamath is, we left three weeks early. Do yourself a favor do not stay here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park had several different areas. There were the regular RV sites in the gravel with little shade. There were RV sites in a meadow with lots of shade and then a lot of tent areas. There is a large area about 3 acres for football, soccer, badminton and anything you would want to play. The management was extremely helpful. We asked to purchase some salmon and they found a fisherman quickly that was willing to sell his fresh fish. They were wonderful to take the time and give us directions. The Saturday night BBQ was fun and we enjoyed the entertainment. We were going to use the laundry room but it had more broken washers than working ones. A fellow in a tear drop trailer said the bathrooms were dirty and upon request they cleaned them immediately. The electrical where we were parked needed repair. We tried to walk to the Klamath River from our camp site which we were told we could do; turned out to be too muddy to navigate. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Their ad says they can accommodate RV's up to 50 feet, but the lot was barely big enough for our motorhome without room for the towed car. They asked us to park the car on a small grassy area where many, many other campers pottied their dogs without cleaning up after them because they might try to squeeze another RV in next to us. Thank God they didn't have to for we literally would not of been able to have our slides out and barely would of been able to open our door. We had to be very careful trying to get to our car door, due to the irresponsible pet owners and the park owners not enforcing the pet cleanup. They charged us full price for Saturday, not honoring the Passport rate. Many others do the same, but they state that policy in the Passport ad. This park did not have that stated. On the positive side, the staff is very helpful with local information. It is close to the National Redwood forest and the surrounding area is beautifully rustic. They also had a delicious Salmon grill out on Saturday night accompanied with local musicians which we totally enjoyed. We stayed 2 nights, Saturday and Sunday, in a 40 foot motorhome. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After coming down two miles of barely paved roads, across a one-lane hard-to-access Bailey bridge, we arrived at the campground. One look at the brown grass, rock road, and run-down office, and we said "Oh, my." But, after 3 days into our week, we have a different perspective. The roads are not too dusty because there is not that much traffic; we don't see the office very much; and we are watering our patch of grass. It is very quiet and peaceful, but somewhat rundown. The previous comments about needing cleaning up still apply. Probably because there is only one full-time employee. The sites are wide, but not very deep. We are here on Labor Day weekend and it does not seem at all frantic; still peaceful and quiet. After checking other campgrounds in the area, we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice wooded setting, staff friendly enough but not terribly informative. WiFi was marginal from what we heard around camp. Terrible one-lane bridge on the way to the campground, CREEP over it. Easy access to Redwood National Park, beautiful scenery, and the Klamath River. We were on the Happy Camper half-price rate of $13, and liked it well enough to extend our stay from 3 to 11 nights. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I agree with most of the reviewers here that the people who run this park are generally very friendly and helpful. The park is clean and quite family oriented, and our boys had a good time during our recent two night stay. On the downside, our cable didn't work very well (only about five channels were clear enough to see) and the wi-fi signal was too weak to use, even in the main building laundry room. I told the management about these issues upon check out, and the response was about as weak as the wi-fi signal (they'd have somebody "check it out"). In reading the other reviews here, it seems the wi-fi issue may be an ongoing one. However, all things considered, we would stay here again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was the last campground we stayed in on our Oregon Coast and Redwood Forest trip. When we first pulled into the campground I was disappointed. The camp was older and fairly unkempt. To pull into our site, we had to drive down one side of the campground loop, back into an empty site, then pull into our site. The western campground loop road would be very difficult to navigate with a big rig because of overgrowth and trees near the side of the road. Our site had 110 power, no sewer and functional, though broken, water valve. The power plug was exposed to the elements and not up to date. The site, and roads are all dirt and grass. Our site wasn't level but we were able to level out sufficiently. As a previous review mentioned, the camp is off highway 101. But it is three miles off the main highway. The road is fairly maintained but if you travel it at night, take it easy. There are some bumps and a temporary(?) one-lane bridge replaces a section of washed out road. The good thing about being three miles off the highway is that it is quiet. However, because of that, it is also less convenient. Our site was in the shady, western part of the campground. The eastern part is a line of rigs in the dust. The full hookups appeared to be more in the eastern section though I would still have chosen the western, shady area over the dusty, sunny, more crowded eastern area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This camp suffered a devastating flood in late 2005 and is still recovering from the damage. They lost 23 campsites when the river tore away part of their park. Also, the bathrooms apparently took quite a hit during the flood and are not yet in great shape. However, we still really enjoyed a four-day stay at this park and would certainly return. The campsites in the portion of the park to the west of the headquarters were very shady and pleasant. (The area to the east is not shaded.) The sites were fairly level, but the mixed dirt/grass surface became a little muddy at times. The location of the park is fantastic, right near state and national parks featuring old-growth redwoods. Also, the coast is right nearby, and we saw whales every day at the mouth of the river. This park is about a mile from the highway, unlike most of the other parks in the area, so it is very quiet. The staff is very friendly and cooperative, and they host a really delicious barbecue on Saturday nights. They have live music -- some of the staffers and their friends play stringed instruments (guitar and dobro), and they are very talented. The park has no laundromat, so we had to drive into the nearby town of Klamath. Also, the WiFi signal was very weak; it worked only in the headquarters building. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Campground was found to be in a poorly maintained condition. The restroom's were VERY run-down, dirty and not stocked. The shower's were sorely in need of repair, the men's shower didn't even have hot water. Several dilapidated trailer's homesteaded the pull-through section. The trailer's were occupied by a host of unsavory individual's who spent their time working on their RV's until 3 o'clock A.M. each night. After the third night, I complained to the manager. The night's were quiet after that. We paid for a week but left about two day's early. Wonderful location near whale watching and giant redwood's. Would return to the area for more hiking and bike-riding, but would NOT stay at Kamp Klamath again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is what a campground should be, wooded and grassy, the sites are rather small but only every other site is used except doing a holiday weekend, when you arrive you go pick your site and let them know where you are staying. On Saturday evening there is a BBQ salmon/chicken dinner and campfire with sing-a-long, it was great. The owner runs a sightseeing "Funbus" tour to Fern Canyon and the great redwoods, the price was $29.95 and included a lunch when we got back to Kamp Klamath. He is very informative about the redwoods and the area, the tour is well worth the price. We had paid for a two week stay but due to family illness we needed to leave early and he gave us a refund, thank you! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Showers were not what we expected and we opted to shower in the RV. Nice and peaceful,
weren't many people there when we camped the first part of June. They used to have cable but said the cable company went out of business. It's too remote for antenna reception. Folks were friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Just got back from this surprise of a RV campground. An excellent destination
campground. The owner Aaron was friendly and helpful and was constantly getting the campground in better shape. A great experience for our kids with a lot
of room to ride bikes, my 5yr old and 6yr old nephew had a great time riding around on a large open grass field. A short walk about 50yrds from the edge
of the grass field to the Klamath River. Help was friendly and gave us some helpful tips where to fish for Salmon on the river. This is a great place if
you don't want that parking lot feel that many of the campgrounds around Klamath have. This place is next to the Redwood National Park so lots of forest.
We picked buckets of Blackberries that we hope to make into jam this week. The biggest surprise was the fish smoker onsite. We smoked 20lbs of Salmon with
Aarons expert advise for $10 (cleaning fee) plus the small cost of the wood. It's really good, we have lots of it. If you don't fish just go to the local
Indians and they will sell you Salmon for around $1 a pound. We also went to Crescent City about 19 miles North where you can pick up fresh caught Tuna
for $1.25 - $1.00 per pound from the fidshing boats in the Harbor. We camped here in August 2003 in our Itasca Sunrise SE Class A. This is a woinderfull
rustic but still very comfortable and clean campground We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. Second cleanest restrooms I've seen all year. Wi-Fi & cable are extra but the Wi-Fi is reasonably fast from your campsite. Management is very nice. Turn to get in is tight bur doable with any rig. Sites are a little tight but accommodated our dual slides and awning without problems. Very nice cleaning stations for the fisherman. Will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate represents a group. This park is in a great setting and many sites have incredible views of the Klamath river. Sites are arranged for front windshield viewing. Big rigs beware as the way in is a very tight turn, but doable. We had no problems with pur 40'. Downside of the park is the sites are fairly close together and no 50amp. There is a boat ramp and dock available as well. Wi-Fi is an additional fee per day, but quite fast. We had no cell phone but Verizon was available. Management is very good and quite willing to assist with anything. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a gem! The park was immaculate and this was one of the best views we ever had! We had an easy, spacious pull-through site with river view. The management was very helpful with advice about the area. We had a great time! This is our favorite spot on the Redwoods Coast. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One the most beautiful rv parks in California. View of the Klamath river winding is fantastic. Price includes the Wifi charges for RPI membership and river frontage space. Landscaping is beautiful. Bathroom - showers immaculately clean. I had external wifi antenna and was able to receive 100% signal strength from both park routers. You can walk to the rivers edge. It is surrounded by a forest. I will come back here. Small clubhouse with tv, puzzles and library. Friendly staff. Very clean laundry facilities. Every thing is so green, compared to the Southern California RV parks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After reading others reviews about this campground I was concerned about staying a week here. To my surprise it is a lovely park. I came in on RPI and it does list the $4.00 electric charge. Now although I do think that is too much I came in knowing it, so it was not a surprise. WiFi was spotty but I was given a free trial for 24 hours and it did allow me to communicate including writing my blog. I chose to re-up for the whole week and he was nice enough to give me a deal because the WiFi needed work. Power was good, but water pressure did go down in the mornings during "shower" time. This is a good park and considering the looks of other parks near by, a real gem! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stopped at this park under RPI membership and was supposed to be charged $14 per night. By the time the manager finished adding all the extras, $2 for cable, $2 for Wi-Fi per day, the charge was now up to $18. We had already been charged $4 extra for electricity. I didn't mind paying all these extras, but was then told we owed another $10 because we were only staying 1 night and not 2 nights. I'm afraid that broke the straw. The manager was very rude about it and we just walked out and left. We will not stay at this park again. We have stayed at parks that were more expensive and were not treated this rudely. Note from admin: Posted on their website and in the printed guide you have a two night minimum and they must make a reservation 3 days in advance. He called on the day of arrival and asked if they could come in and manager confirmed the reservation. This is the $10 charge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very Nice! Turn into the park is acute, but not tight if you use all the road to swing wide. Very nice grounds & facilities. Trail not maintained and this is tick country. Nice breeze off the river most of the day. River access, but no swimming. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful view right in a valley of scenic mountains on the Klamath River. Level grass sites. Must pay extra for cable TV and Wi-Fi. We stayed 5 nights. Passport America rate of $21.00 included $2.00 per night for cable TV. We would most definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Riverfront site with nice view. Very clean and well maintained park. Had great satellite clearance; decent Verizon phone, less decent air card reception. Kayaked down river and took out right at the park. This is a fishing camp with boat dock and cleaning stations. Would stay again, but not during fishing season. Why? The sites are pretty tight, especially with slides. We lucked out on our door side, but our neighbor did not. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is in a beautiful setting on the South bank of the Klamuth River. There are several other parks along the river to choose from. We chose this one for the view, which is unobstructed from the premium sites. As others have pointed out the sites are close together but we were willing to accept that. The staff was polite and helpful. Wi-Fi is available for an extra charge but we used our Verizon Air Card which worked acceptably well. There is a beautiful beach at the mouth of the river just a couple of miles away and a casino up on the highway if that is your preferred form of entertainment. We paid the rack rate including a $5 premium site charge because we are not discount club members. It was a bit spend y but we plan to stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved this park! Very clean and tidy. Beautiful grounds and the staff was always mowing, weeding and watering. Staff very friendly. Had a lovely site with a 180 degree river view. Planned on staying only 1 week but extended an additional 10 days. We would definitely come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I agree with most of the other comments, both pro and con! Pluses are the view, the grounds and overall feel of the park. The minuses would be the VERY cramped feel if they were close to full, in our case, we couldn't even put out our awning. Our rate is reflective of club membership rate PLUS all imaginable add-ons. Extra charge for electric, extra charge for Wi-Fi, extra charge for cable TV. Both the Wi-Fi and cable TV left much to be desired! The grounds staff were pleasant folks, more than I can say for what must have been either the manager or the owner. Not what you would call customer friendly. Negatives aside, this park is a good "9 or 10." We camped here in a Motorhome.
As others have mentioned, there are some pretty tight turns to get into this park. The sites are grassy and would be muddy if it rained. Most of the extra features they offer in the summer were not being offered while we were there. They did have a potluck on Saturday night which we didn't attend. They had one of the nicest dog walk paths through the woods that we have encountered. We were camping with the Camp Club USA discount, but by the time we added an extra person, 2 dogs, Internet and cable we were up to $30 a night so the savings wasn't that great. It is conveniently located to the redwoods and for fisherman it is right on the river. A river site was $5 extra. A camp host helped us get situated. The park wasn't busy, but I would say in the summer months when it is, you would find the sites a bit narrow and on top of each other. We would stay there again if we wanted to visit this area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
In a stunning location. Compared to other area campgrounds the rack rate for this one is noticeably more. The $22PN is a PA rate. The grounds are kept any good as any nice city park. By 10:30, after the departures, the sites had been mown as needed, & the gravel roadway leveled & raked. The only real negatives were that there is an extra charge for WI-FI & cable. Also the sites, basically on an open grass field facing the river, are extremely narrow. They have a policy of alternating site use if not real busy so that the vacant site is available for use. Laundry is large & was spotless. I feel safe to assume restrooms were the same. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Friendly owner. Very tight turn getting into park. Rate is for Coast to Coast with a $3. charge for electric and $2. for cable. Sites are all grass with gravel roads. It was off season so every other site was used. If it were full and all sites used it would be very very close. There is Wi-Fi for a $3 or 4 dollar a day charge. We used our Verizon air card and it worked well as did our cell phones. You can not use your auto-former and the electric was OK. We had a 30 amp site and I don't believe there are any 50 amp. The laundry and bathrooms were very clean. There is no shade in the main part of the campground but along the far side of the campground there is a shady tree line. Very nice view of the river. Very quiet and peaceful. A great place to stay to visit the Redwoods. Nearest town with large food stores is about 25 mile distant. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A nice park with all of the amenities except a swimming pool. It's wide-open and the sites are easy to get to once you navigate the tight entrance turn. It was quite busy when we were there with Class A's, Class C's, fifth wheels, TTs and tents abounding. I choose a waterfront site, "an extra five dollars per night". While the park is clean and well maintained, I like a little more space between the sites with a bit of landscaping to help separate the sites. These sites are about 10' apart with only a picnic table and the utility hookups between them. It seemed to me that we were the only trailer in a line of behemoth class A rigs. The people in the unit next to ours would periodically run the generator on their unit thus filling the trailer with diesel fumes. I hinted to the owner of the RV that it didn't seem necessary to run the generator when you had shore power available but he didn't seem to get the message. Boy was I glad to see them leave. Next time I'll pick one of the "cheap seats" by the tree line with the other trailers. I liked sitting out by the river on the foggy mornings while enjoying my morning coffee. They also have evening campfires by the flagpole that were popular with a lot of the folks staying here. All in all, a pleasant place to stay (except for the closeness of the sites to each other). I'd probably come back but I'd stay away from the big rigs next time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
An OK campground but not great. There was low water pressure and low voltage - luckily, we did NOT have to use AC there. There was a problem with one of the septic tanks so everyone had been shifted to use the other one which resulted in the low voltage and maybe the low water pressure. We did not purchase the WiFi at $4/day so I don't know how well it worked. We did pay the Camp Club USA rate so I would have to say that the park was a good value. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We got a Good Sam discount. The bathrooms and showers are clean and the entire site overlooks the river. There are some lawn type games to play and 2 swings. But there really isn't a shore to walk along as this side of the river is more of a small cliff. There was no dock in July but as fishing season approaches the manager said it would be put up. Showering in my RV was frustrating as I had little water pressure, probably because they water the lawn and flowers all day. It cost $4 a day for a wireless code which I wouldn't have minded if I had a good connection. The connection was so slow even though there were three wireless choices on my computer. This same computer at another site a day later was warp speed compared to this park's wireless connection, so I know it's not my computer. My husband likes this place when he pays to go fishing with a guide so I know we'll be back. Next time I'll insist on a hookup with the side were we can position the RV to get the view and far away from the man with the leaf blower. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This park is immaculate. The grass is neatly cut. The view from the waterfront lots is spectacular. It is one of the best we have ever stayed in. The staff is friendly and helpful. The only problem is a really tight right turn at the entrance to the park. It is important to swing wide at the entry gate. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects RPI rate after added surcharges for elect., cable TV and a river view lot. Big rigs be advised that the entrance is a u-turn from the access road so swing wide from the left side of the road to make the turn into the park. Friendly staff, nice dog walk area, clean facilities and a spectacular view of the Klamath River. River view sites are 30 amp only, but even in June, there was no need for AC. Closest major shopping is 25 miles north in Crescent City, but a small market is in Klamath. It's very peaceful here and we would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park. Beautiful setting right on the river. Very clean showers and restrooms and laundry. Very friendly owner. The WiFi was not working when we were there as he was waiting for a part but normally the charge is $5.50 for the day. The sites are close together and could be a pain when the park is full but otherwise he will space you out and all is well. We would stay again for sure We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
As we were here during the off-season we pretty much had the park to ourselves. Very quiet and peaceful with the beautiful Klamath River right out our front door. We would stay here again. Passport America rate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here through RPI Preferred, and it was clean, well-maintained, had newer showers, nice laundry facilities, and a community room with a book exchange/travel information. WIFI is provided at a cost, there is a required $3/day electricity charge and an optional $2/day for cable (about 6 channels). Sites are grassy, but on-top of each other, which was okay during the off-season, but may be too much in-season. Nice river views. Also has a boat dock. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This RV park is located on the Klamath River. The entrance has a very sharp turn coming in. It did have 50 amp service, but in order to get out with our satellite, we took a site with 30 amp service which worked fine for us. We could not use our washer due to detergents and bleaches damaging the fragile septic system, but they did have laundry facilities which used a different system. This is an RPI park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
RPI rate + elec. Beautiful park, green grass, flower beds, mountain forests and the river. Salmon fishing, boat dock in season. Close to Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park (don't miss). Only critisism is that the sites are too close together. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place has an awesome setting, right on the river.It is one of the cleanest parks we've ever been to. Had it not been for our Passport America discount we wouldn't have stopped here. Now we will go back every time. They have nice trails for walking the dogs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is situated in a good central location to tour the Redwoods (although it is not in the Redwoods itself), and after driving by the other camps in Klamath it seems like the nicest. Beware of a sharp turn to enter the park though. Make sure to drive along the Coast Road (narrow, gravel, no trailers) to Prarie Creek State Park from here. They opened early (mid-April) because of dry weather so there were only 3 rigs here on a weekend. If it were like this all the time I'd rate it a 9, but if it were full things would be tight with rigs close together which I dislike. Motorhomes have the advantage because they can back up into the front row sites and have a view of the river, which is really beautiful, even when the fog rolls in. The Wi-Fi worked fine but I hate when places charge for it ($5+.day). We even got Dish satellite to work despite the adjacent mountain, and they have cable TV (limited channels). Staff was very nice. There are still no amenities in Klamath, so stock up before arriving. They charged $19 with Passport America, no tax. Would definitely stay here again. I can't comment on other problems regarding power and wet ground as others mentioned as we did not run into those problems. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful views of the river, easy access. The park was clean and well kept. The owner was friendly to all the guests. The sites are on soft grass, so some big rigs may have trouble in the wet season. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The best thing about this park is the river - it is lovely to sit in chairs and enjoy the view. Not much else to recommend it. The office staff was rude and one of the reasons we left early. The sites were suffering from the rain. If you go here short on groceries or looking for a meal outside the rv, forget it. No restaurants, the grocery is a milk and bread place only. The surrounding area is beautiful, but stay down the road on the other side of the bridge - it has to be better. It is easier to put up with shortcomings when the office treats you fair and courteously. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very well maintained open, grassy, park right on the river. Large, level sites, with ample room between them. The 30 amp power was pretty weak. At a 20 amp load, it drops to around 108-110 VAC. The owner said not to use any autoformers or electric heaters. When I asked about the 50 amp sites, he also said no washing machines because they don't want the load on their waste water system. They have five 50 amp sites, but he never put anybody in them in the week we were there. We were there on the $8 Coast to Coast rate. The park is also RPI and Passport America. They charge an extra $5/night for the river view sites. We passed on that and still had a great view of the river. Spotless laundry room with three washers and three dryers. Pleasant owner. Fee-based WiFi ($5.50/day, $12.50/week) that worked well, even though we were about as far as you can get from the access point. We would happily stay there again, but not when we think we might need air conditioning, because of the power situation. I don't know that A/C is ever needed in this location, since it is only a mile or so from the beach. Stock up on groceries before you arrive. The nearest supermarket is 20 miles away in Crescent City. The nearby store in town has no produce, etc. Another reviewer said they have a marina and boat launch area, but they don't. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park's location is scenic and quiet. Because we stayed here in October there was plenty of room, but the sites would be pretty narrow when the campground is full. The facility is well kept and the wifi (extra charge) is excellent. Satellite reception is easy with no trees near the campsites. The surrounding countryside is accessible by car, bike or on foot and is scenic with many trees including redwoods. The ocean is three miles from the campground. A good place to spend some time! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great spot to rest and relax or to go fishing if that is your thing. They have a nice Marina and launching area. Only warning is to be aware, there is a speed bump at the bottom of the entrance road, down hill and if you don't come onto the bump square, both wheels at once, you will rock and roll in a big rig. We broke wine glasses and one plate. The rest of the stay made up for the entrance. Do the shoreline drive in your toad and see the sea life. Also drive the red wood forests. They are beautiful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The view from our site was wonderful, worth the extra $5, and it was peaceful here. Our site was quite narrow and we had people on both sides, so really we were inside the motorhome or would have had to go to the common area to relax. They have nice chairs there to enjoy the river view. The site was level and we did get satellite reception from our rooftop dome. We did see people catching big salmon and a bald eagle fishing so the river is entertaining. Getting into the park requires a U turn from the road into the driveway, but we did manage with a 40' motorhome towing. It is worth taking the coast drive if you have time - the mouth of the Klamath River is where the Native Americans have their nets out fishing for the salmon. We saw whales and sea lions from the viewpoint. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love this park! It is so beautiful, quiet and peaceful on the banks of the Klamath River. The owners and camp host have been very helpful and make sure you have everything you need. The park is very clean and attractive. Our site is level and on grass. The roads are well maintained with excellent white rock. All facilities, clubhouse, laundry and restrooms are very clean. Wood for fires is provided free. We stayed 2 weeks and would recommend it to anyone! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Many parks say they are river or lake front but this one really is on the river. Great views up and down the river. This place has changed a lot this year. A new owner evidently has made some big changes and this is a really nice park now. Clean everywhere. Very friendly staff and were very helpful. Even the people staying at the park were all friendly, really good "vibes" from the park. We are already planning on coming back and staying longer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 7 / 10 ]
Nice campground very close to the Redwoods. Staff was very friendly. While we had a pull through site, we ended un hooking the dinghy and backing out of our site, since there was not enough room to maneuver our 40 footer to go forward and make the turns. If we are in the area again we would choose to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a C2C & RPI Park. It is a well maintained, pretty park on the Klamath River. That is about the best thing about this park. It is 1/2 mile off Hwy. 101 over a paved road with lots of trees. Once in the park, there are no trees on the sites but they are on the hills surrounding the park. Everything about the sites is inconvenient. The streets are narrow gravel/grass. Sites are grass, large and unlevel. The staff helps you park and parks you several feet from the back of the sites where the utilities are. Our site was low in front & we had to drive up on boards, also put boards under the jacks. The sewer required about 15' of sewer hose which ran up hill. We had to put boards under it also. We used every board we had to level the motorhome & sewer. It was raining so they will probably never dry out. There was lots of freshly mowed grass which we tracked into our coach. They only allow a small door mat. We are fulltime and don't have a home to go to clean up & dry out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The last night of Labor Day weekend and this place was packed (they said good fishing). We got one of the last pull-throughs. When it is this crowded you are really packed together, but it was only for one night. Lots of families here and boats everywhere. Park is a nice setting with river access and lots of grass areas. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped there for 4 nights because it's a great location for a base camp to explore the Redwoods National and State Parks, the pacific coast, Patrick's Point State Park, etc. We were generally pleased with the park. It is clean, well-maintained, and has a nice playground for the kids. On the downside: (a). there was some road noise from highway 101, though it wasn't too bad. (b). people not far from us who camped in a tent had got a visit by a bear one night though no major harm was done. (c). the swimming pool is really small so we didn't even try it. (d). this family run business is at times a little bit disorganized. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We stayed at this park for a week after a 2+ month trip. We really liked it. The staff was helpful and attentive. They maintained a highly visible presence, even patrolling at night. The spaces are wide, lots of grass and have picnic tables. Staff makes an attempt to space the rigs out so there is lots of additional room when they have that option. Prior reviews indicated a pushy pizza guy, but we did not find that at all and actually appreciated the onsite pizza including delivery to the RV (RV room service) given there are not many other food options nearby. We also appreciated the bears who appear each evening at the fish cleaning station. A good example of bears and folks interacting in respectful ways and great photo opportunities. Lots of families, bicycles and tents, which were an added plus. The downside is the wifi, which is weak and needs to be accessed when no one else is trying to use it ( middle of the night?) Since Verizon was weak, good wifi would have made this a near perfect spot. We would definitely camp here again and recommend it to others. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We LOVE this park. Our latest trip was our third visit. The Staff is extremely helpful and nice. A very warm welcome upon arrival. The grounds are always clean and well kept, very inviting. We have two boys: 11 and 8. They have the run of the park along with the other kids. The family fire pit is very nice, very big and always has plenty of room for kids to do s'mors and adults to enjoy conversation. The only BAD thing about this park is the addition of the PIZZA man! This was new to us. Upon arrival we were hounded to buy pizza. After a long drive on the road and trying to check in, the last thing I was thinking about was pizza. But the sales guy never stopped! He even followed me to my RV and hounded me while I was hooking up. I finally gave in just so he would leave. Although the pizza was ok, it was NOT worth the 20 plus dollars. Too bad because this is one of the finest parks I've stayed in, the pushy pizza guy is not necessary. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Klamath has a variety of parks to choose from and this is the best of the best. We were referred here by one of the other local parks because we are traveling with kids and we are so happy we took their recommendation. We loved it here. Plenty for our kids to see and do. They have a Recreation Hall and it was well equipped. We took the Kayak tour, offered at the park ($45 per person), with our kids and had a blast. Everyone at the camp was friendly and knowledgeable. The pizza (made fresh on-site) is worth buying but the "salesman" is a bit pushy. A few boats were in the park, but then again this RV Park is on the Klamath River (One of the best rivers for Salmon fishing in the country) and in my experience fishing is a great way to pass time while RV'ing. Overall the park is great and my kids had a time they won't soon forget. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
They do push the pizza HARD. Have not tried it yet. I should have checked this website instead of a recommendation from some one as there are 50 amp parks near by and I think they cost less. You do not normally need a lot of AC here. But, Grogginess in the morning can lead to over loading the circuit breaker which means I'm at the post in my robe. Historically this is a fishing camp with narrow roads and the spaces are close to one another. But they are trying to groom the grass and keep the plants nice to offset some boats etc. The pleasantness of the CG is based on if you focus on the positives or negatives. I'd like it more with more power. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the best looking campground in the Klamath area. We looked all around at the other parks, and this one stood out like a diamond in the rough. Very well maintained, friendly staff, and nice large spaces. They have 100 pull through spaces, and all of them are capable of big rig. Upon arrival, the park host took me in the golf cart to select a site, and let me know that they try to keep 1 space open on either side when they are not busy. We were under trees, and they were well cut, leaving plenty of room for awning and slides. The internet worked very well, which was good, since our AT&T wireless did not work at all in this area. The only place for cell service was 20 miles north or 15 miles south. The river was a 400 ft walk, and while there we saw a Gray Whale and calf. We got lots of great pictures, this made the kids very happy just seeing that. Later that night a black bear came out of the woods to the fish station and poked around for trimmings. After the bear left, a wild cat (not sure what kind) came up and got the left overs, very cool! I forgot to mention the Pizza, when you arrive you will be "informed" about the home made pizza, and how great it is, etc. The information ends with the question "how many do you want?" Kind of funny, but I refused it on the spot, not liking the sales pitch approach upon arrival. I was mistaken, as we ordered the second night, and I would have ordered both nights if I knew how good it was, truly very good pizza, and they deliver to your door! I would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We wish we had realized that this is a fishing camp. There are boat trailers and trucks parked everywhere. The gravel roads are very narrow. The sites are side-by-side being very close to your neighbor on one side with a decent size patio side. The web site pictures look nothing like it is when the park is full. The 30Amp is low. I had to wash down the washers in the small laundry before use. A fisherman came in and used the laundry tub to wash his boots and to rinse the chunks of dirt from his clothes, then put them in the dryer, unwashed. The floor was filthy and in the restrooms, also. There are only 4 washers for over 100 sites. A worker's dog was tied up on a very long rope in the rain and got tangled around a post, yelping constantly; however, renters are advised to keep dogs on a "short" leash. The rules state that campfires are not allowed in the full hook-up sites, yet there are portable campfire pits in the sites. It amazes me how they received such a high rating with Trailer Life and Woodalls. Perhaps they were pre-warned that they were going to be inspected. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I wish to compliment the owners on their very nice grounds keeping, entertainment center, arcade, pool tables, a children’s play ground, recreational facilities and health exercise center with quality nautilus machines. They certainly are a premier RV Park and campground. The spacious lawns, volleyball, tetherball, shuffle board, basketball court, heated pool and horseshoe pits are a big hit. Bathrooms are tiled, clean and impressive. Laundry facilities are outstanding and their on-site convenience store is a big time saver. The annual Klamath Blackberry Festival in early September is anticipated to be a big success for the entire community and guests. Pick plump rip blackberries from Camper Corral property from July through September. Owner takes personal care to ensure all Camper Corral facilities are maintained and serves as excellent home base to explore the many entertaining attractions and recreational opportunities. The Klamath River frontage property is excellent for salmon and steelhead fishing. If you prefer a professional fishing guide, there are several on-site during the season. Kudos: keep up the great job! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is a beautiful, flat grassy place. All sites are huge with room for several vehicles on a site! All hook-ups worked very well, except TV cable, (also wi-fi was spotty and occasional at best). We enjoyed the nightly campfire and marshmallow roast. No pancake breakfast was offered on Sunday, although this is stated on their website. There is a pizza place on site, with wonderful home-made pizzas delivered to your site. It seemed to be a very kid friendly spot, with a rec room and playground. Many recreational opportunities were close by. We did see bears, but they seemed to be only after the trash cans. Berries were abundant! We will be back for a week or more, next time! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel roads and lots of grass to park on. Pretty quiet. Walk to Klamath River from RV park. As always full timers get away with just about everything but everyone else is reminded of the rules. Take your groceries with you as there is nothing nearby. Good access to lots of redwoods. Crescent City is good for a day trip about 20 miles away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access from the hwy. Pretty scenic setting. Some cable TV channels and mostly slow Wi-Fi connectivity (but better than nothing on both accounts). No AT&T service but our Verizon phones worked. Kids really enjoyed themselves here playing outside most all day while we were there. Not much to do in the immediate local area if you're not into fishing (no "town" nearby). The park store is fairly expensive and the on-site pizza place had pizza's listed for like $23! Check out the Trees of Mystery just north of the park, really worth the $14 adult admission. Warning: A lot of the interior sites are extremely non-big rig friendly. If it were not for some vacant sites around us we'd have physically not been able to hook up and get out. Additionally, all the sites are grass and ours was in a big uneven hole that required levelers. Good thing it didn't rain or we'd have been sitting in a pond. Unlike many of nearby parks this is not directly on the river. Black bear in the campground came out of the woods every night at 7:30 and again at 10:30. Watch you kids as the staff doesn't run him off until a crowd gathers. Kind of a cool sight to see but if you have kids please brief them on the situation. Another place that's a tad too expensive. Might go back if passing by otherwise one visit is enough. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed three long nights in travel trailer. Camping sites are on a large grassy field without pavement. There is a local bear/bears that make nightly runs throughout the campground. Plastic trash bins are ravaged everyday. The staff seems to be content in cleaning this up daily. It seems that the ownership would invest in bear proof bins to deter the wild animals. Campers should be warned to exercise extreme caution. My neighbor played his radio all night long to keep the bear away from his porch. Very annoying. I would avoid this place. TV and Wi-Fi reception were poor. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really enjoyed this campground. The customer service was impeccable! They have a group campfire each night complete with smores! The kids loved the playground and the arcade. Each evening a young bear would peek into the fish cleaning station and play with the fish bucket, it was really cool! The owner is REALLY involved in his park and really cares about your experience. The park is impeccably clean! I even saw them wiping down the electric meters at each site! I would highly recommend this gem of of a park! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park was a total surprise. Coming in, we could see from the road that it was huge and since it was Labor Day weekend, it was pretty full. You would expect it to be noisy, but it wasn't. Camper Corral is one of nicest campgrounds we've seen in our 4 months of travel. The staff is very friendly and quite visible; they even hosted a Pot Luck BBQ and everything was great. Sites are spacious with nice shade trees (except in the tent area). Very pet friendly; everyone has a dog but there is little barking. Over 40 acres of space for the dogs to play and it's a short walk through the blackberry patch to the river. Hubby and I are presently arguing; I want to stay another day and he's ready to head down the road. Lots of stuff to do and see in nearby parks: huge redwoods, ocean, trails and more trails. The place is a fisherman's paradise and the salmon are running. Folks next to us have been here 2 months and have been coming here for years during fishing season. Kids, bikes, dogs everywhere and it all puts a smile on your face. We would definitely return if in this area again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here twice within the last several weeks, once on the way up to Oregon and once on the way back down. Both times we had no issues with any park features or the staff. Both times we stayed against the back wall of the park underneath the trees to ensure we didn't get too much sun as most of the park is setup for full sun exposure. Keep in mind that IF you're in a tent that most nights you'll find lots of dew on your tent/fly when you get up in the morning -- likely due to the late night fog that is common in that area. Many tenting family's/groups seem to bring mini electric fridges and plug them in while they're out during the day to skip the need for coolers (assuming they chose a spot with power). We'll keep that in mind next time we come up. We will stay here again in the future! We camped here in a Tent.
Can we live here permanently? This was heaven on earth. Located immediately next to the Klamath River and between the Redwood Forests we started thinking we were in a fairytale setting. The main building sports a Verizon Tower so we had Rev-A service the whole time. Short drives to everything. Neighbors were all cool. We will be back. Comments: A little noisy at night, not a lot of space between rigs, a bit pricey unless you drive a hard bargain (like we did). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Always clean, green lawn, everything in good working order. Have stayed here several times and the people bend over backwards to help you in anyway possible. If you don't want sewer or cable, pay less money and stay on the grass in the tent area. Quiet and almost by yourself. This was an overnight stay and a disconnect was not necessary.this is an excellent park to stay in just for overnight or spend a couple days and visit the klamath river and points of interest. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I will definitely be back. The sites are a good size, unlike the typical franchise size. The owners are very nice and concerned about their guests. The pool is a joke. I guess it does not matter because it is so cold up there anyway. We enjoyed how large the campground is and ran all around the kid friendly place with our little ones. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As a teenager I first stayed here in 1977 with my grandparents for some salmon fishing, and to visit The Trees of Mystery. We all had an awesome time. Over thirty year later, this park just gets better with age! Its clean, well cared for and has activities for folks of all ages. We live south of Reno, Nevada and enjoy the beautiful drive to Klamath. My wife and I highly recommend this park as an Oasis by the sea! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The owners and staff are very nice and go out of their way to help you. The sites are in grass fields and fairly roomy. They do have sites side by side so you're close to one neighbor but there's plenty of room on the door side of the RV. Somewhat disappointed that the river wasn't visible from the park - you have to walk about a quarter mile on a trail to get to the river.The website makes it look like it's right there. Easy on/off Hwy 101 and in a very quite location. A reat location to get to Redwood National Forest. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wodalls rated this a 5 X 5 and said they had 30/ 50 amp sites. They did not exist. This is not a top rated facility. Good fishing spot. This sites are not marked and getting in and out requires over the grass travel. Will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here Aug 2008 for three days. The site was large and pretty level, the rate was quite appropriate for the amenities (swimming pool, laundry, store, ping pong, TV room, bingo, pool table, exchange library, reading room, nightly group camp fire). The bathrooms were ultra-clean, the park was very well maintained and the staff was very helpful. We don't tow a car, the park owners were glad to drop all five of my family around to two local tourist attractions, and picked us up within 15 minutes of our calling for a ride back. There were on-site fishing and kayak guides, I spoke with both of them at length and found them very knowledgable, flexible, and friendly. We rented kayaks and were treated like royalty by all involved. Our visit was so favorable we would have stayed there again on the way home to CA the next week to fish, but mechanical troubles forced us to find another route home. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Do NOT stop here if you want a reasonable overnight accommodation. We were charged $33.50 for a water/electric only hook-up on an uneven grass site. The site did have a picnic table, but the fire ring was filled with partially burned trash. Those were the ONLY amenities. Our site had no cable, and could not pick up WiFi. This is the only campground we've EVER seen that wants to charge for use of the dump site AFTER you've already paid to stay there. The dump site is padlocked, and they want ANOTHER $10 for the privilege of using it. We've NEVER seen another park pull this one, in any of the lower 48 states. Of course, we could have paid $43 for a full hook-up site, but we found that rate to be exorbitant. It's not a fancy resort, and charging those rates struck as ridiculous. The full hook-up sites are all jammed together with barely room to put out the awning. We felt totally ripped off, and will, obviously, never stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent location to view Redwoods, but mediocre park. Hosts were friendly, but owner decided to drive ATV through park repeatedly at 3am. Hosts did apologize for his behavior the next day. Pool was just opened but not yet heated. Game/exercise room still under construction. Spots were fairly close together and only a very few have pads to pull up on. Would probably get messy with any measurable rain. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park has everything we needed. The Klamath River is within walking distance and, when we weren't biking and hiking around that, there are numerous activities for kids at the campground. There are also several other attractions within only a few miles. And when the rain started, we were grateful for the cable hookups to keep our daughter occupied. The owners told us that this summer they would be opening a pizza restaurant on the premise and that there would also be nightly hay rides weather permitting. We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to stop in again this summer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a family friendly park that offers activities for both children and adults that included hay rides, a swimming pool and bingo. The staff was very friendly and the sites were large and well maintained. Another fun activity was picking wild blackberries that grow all around the park. The only reason we did not give this park a ten was that the laundry room was small and the wifi was inconsistent. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We would have rated this park a 9, except for the bait-and-switch approach on their website. Upon arrival we pointed out that the rates on their website, as obtained 3 days earlier, were considerably lower than those we were being charged. We gave them a dated copy of the rate printout from their website. Other associated charges were also higher than advertised. Owner personally told us that the website we cited was not his. He said he had nothing to do with that website. However, a WHOIS search of "campercorral" shows both the technical and administrative contact to be this same owner with the same address and fax number as that of Camper Corral. The business card we obtained from the office also shows their website is in fact "campercorral." The grounds and facilities were clean, although the RV sites are wedged together like sardines in a tin. This owner previously managed a motel in Cambria, California. He should know better than to pull such a shuck-and-jive con on travelers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We loved this park! We were with friends and were able to face each other and keep our kids corralled. The owner came out and had a campfire with us, and brought marshmallows and roasting sticks. Great place! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was the perfect base camp for exploring the redwoods and the northern California coast (and apparently for fishing, too, as it's located next to the Klamath River and there were several boats in the park). The restrooms and showers were always clean. My impression was that whomever is responsible for this park really cares about it. Someone was always tending to the lawns, flowers, laundry room, trash area, etc. We stayed for several nights and will definitely return again when in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Over-all a pleasant experience. 100 pull-through sites big enough to handle anything. Separate tenting area. Well groomed grounds, manicured and clean sites and nice a wide (30+ feet). No fire rings in RV area, but a community fire ring every night. Five minute walk to the river, and the fishing, by all accounts, is still good. Neighbor caught 3-15+lb salmon the day after we arrived. Laundry room with 4-washers ($1.50) and 4 dryers (.75); clean and neat. Quiet and peaceful as this is just post-Memorial Day. Lots of typical tourist traps and things to see. Will return if in the area again!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Liked this campground, big open grassy area in Klamath. Lot's of room to maneuver, hosts were very pleasant. Stayed there a couple of nights on the way down the coast from Seattle. Wifi was fast and free. Lot of tourist stuff to do in the Redwoods (one of the drive through trees is right near the campground). Went fishing with one of the local guides that base out of the campground - Ken Cunningham - they'll take you up the Klamath river on a jet boat and then fish for salmon - we got a 14 lb king that tasted great on the bbq, highly recommend the guide and the campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful and well maintained park with the friendliest and hardest working owner and employees we've met on our travels. They had some wi-fi glitches while we stayed, but very cheerfully continued to work on getting it up and running. It's sure to be one of our favorite parks. Would highly recommend staying here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Although the park is still recovering from the winter flood, Carol made us feel welcome and worked hard to make sure our stay was comfortable. It's easy to see how beautiful the park is during the summer when everything is green and the facilities are repaired. By far the best RV park in the area and a great place to see the redwoods, elk, and coast. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here soon after the flood. I review this park, because even after the devastation, they were very helpful in finding us a space where the cable still worked, and making sure we were ok with the fact that many things did not work or were not available. You could tell they were on the fast track to bringing their park back to the way it was. I look foward to staying here in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
WOW! We just got home and what a great RV experience this was. This is an example of how an RV Park should be run. The place was spotless, the people were friendly, and the kids were more than welcome. We enjoyed the FREE pancake breakfast that they serve on Sunday. The place is just beautiful with lots of grass. The location is very central and there are a lot of fun activities close by. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park.Friendly owners/managers. Lots of grass (you even park on the grass! Close to the river and they have a trail that leads to it. 16 miles south of Crescent City. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed here before, lots of grass, Klamath river within walking distance via a trail in the woods. Very quiet and friendly park. Many people stay here for several months in the summer because it is usually cool. We camped here in a camper.
We really enjoyed our stay here. We were lucky and were placed in the biggest/nicest spot they had. So many redwoods in our space we could not tell what time it was (not good if you are trying to leave early). We stayed here three nights and would have stayed longer if we could. Other spaces are more open to no trees but grass. Ask owner for what experience you are looking for. The owners are extremely nice and full of local info (they will show you what to do in the area 20 miles north and south). Restrooms/Shower area very clean and they have lots of hooks in the showers. Laundry room nice, but a little priced a little higher than some campgrounds. Nice little mini golf under renovation now. Nice little rec room with games to play. We walked their little trail behind the campground and it was nice. Some rigs here looked full time, but not dirty. Tent area covered by redwoods for the most part. Nice little store with food and gifts. Wi-Fi worked well, but you must ask for code and get a lecture on use. Only main beef is the price of extra people over the standard two. A little steep ($4 a day) with the only excuse of extra water usage for the site. My girls do not use that much water. I would stay here again especially looking at other campgrounds in the area. The campgrounds along the 101 were wide open and the others along the Klamath looked nice, but a tight road to get to them. Even though this is along the 101, the traffic noise did not really bother us and it died off at night. Trees of Mystery, Prairie Creek, Crescent City all within reasonable drive. Give this place a chance if you are in the area. Happy travels and be safe. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was by far the nicest campground we saw in the area. We stayed here two nights while in the Redwood Forest. It's very family friendly, has a little play structure, mini-golf, and little paths to walk along. The restrooms were spotless and the owners were so very nice and helpful. They even gave us tons of great information and directions on things to do and see. The site we stayed in was at the back of the campground and very private, although there were other sites towards the front with less privacy and trees. We had full hookups and didn't have a problem with anything. The Wi-Fi listed is a little spotty and they really only want you using it to check emails, etc, which was fine. They had tons of blackberry bushes to pick from although we ran out of time. If we go back we will definitely stay here again. They also had laundry facilities, ice and a little gift store with a few necessities for sale as well. This was less than a quarter of a mile from the Trees of Mystery and within 20 miles of many of the neat sites, such as Fern Canyon, the twisted tree, the Drive-through Tree, etc. I would stay 3 nights minimum if we do this trip again. So many things to do and see in the Redwoods: beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed there four nights this trip and four nights in 2005. The owners are kind and responsive to requests. They keep everything in good condition. We were in a site in the trees and could not have asked for more. The pull through sites are in an open grass area, so if you want to be in the trees, ask. They have a 1/2 mile walking path through the forest behind the park that is maintained and lots of blackberry bushes if you are there in season. Their WiFi is on satellite and has download limits, so you can't stream video. They have a homemade miniature golf course, a pool table, a ping pong table and a nice little store. We really love this park! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice older park with lots to offer. Clean showers, quiet wooded surroundings. Half mile trail in the woods skirts around the park. Kiddie playground well away from RV sites. Close to Trees of Mystery, jet boats and more. We will stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
