When you see the picture on the web site, it looks like a nice, spacious park. Instead envision it with RVs packed in there, a ton of cars around the sites of the campers who live there and no trees. It was awful. It looked like a sketchy homeless camp. The RV site across from us had several cars out in front of it and the resident was working on them. We did not feel safe or comfortable there at all. I wish I had taken photos, but just imagine the photo that they post and pack in cars and RVs and you will get the idea.
Actually there were 25 of us here for a family reunion. We stayed in RV's and cabins. We have a 34' 5th wheel and had no problem with our site. Due to the season, the grass was dead and there were a lot of weeds around. The playground looked new and was excellent. The pool and hot tub were not working during our whole stay. There is o cable. The two young men checking us in were very nice and accommodating. The park is a little tricky to find. It is not well marked - kind of confusing, actually. It sits just off Hwy 101 but the road noise was not an issue. What was an issue were the people who did not comply with the noise curfews. Sadly we had two nights with two different issues. One brought the sheriff.
I understand this park was recently purchased a couple of years ago and management is making improvements. I know that takes time and I see this park having a ton of potential. However, it has a ways to go - starting with the noise problem.
This is an old KOA that is being refurbished. The people at the desk, a young couple, were extremely helpful and cheerful. The playground and pool have been freshly redone and looks great. There is a dog run of good size and fairly clean. For those who imbibe, there is an extensive selection of craft beers in the campground store. The campsites themselves are a little long in the tooth and could use some TLC. However they were level and all of the utilities worked fine. While close to highway 101 there was little noise and the campground in general was nice and quite. Most of the sites were pull-thru and easily navigated. Should we find our way to Arcata and Eureka again we would be happy to stay there. A good value for your money.
We stayed 2 nights at this park and the staff was very courteous and helpful at check-in. However, our spot was not level and it had gopher holes or some kind of holes all around including right where we entered our unit. We had to be very careful entering/exiting not to step in one and twisting an ankle. The playground was right behind our unit and appeared to be well kept and clean. We did not need this amenity and the noise did not bother us because we were gone during the day. At night, it was amazingly quiet considering how close the park is to the highway.
50 amp not working good-low voltage
Garbage cans were full for days.
Spaces are not level-our tires were off the ground
Did not use restrooms.
Pool and jacuzzi were clean, playground and putt-putt good.
Warning the voltage service is very low at this facility. My surge and low voltage box kept turning the power off to my motor home. Maintenance personnel and I checked my site and two adjacent sites and the voltage was only 104 V. Low voltage can damage the electronic systems in your motor home. Therefore, I would not use their power connection. The operations manager blamed the problem on old buried aluminum wiring. Due to our late arrival, we could not find another local available campsite. The management would not give me a discount even though I had paid for a site with electric and water. Also, the restrooms were dirty and there is no cable or TV service at this location. This is not the type of service we expect from a Good Sam facility at any price.
