We were definitely expecting more for a 4/5 rated campground. We camped in late November with our 9 year old daughter which is obviously their off-season. Booking the site was painless and easy but we expected much more for the cost. We were told upon booking that they had no sewer hook up available although we saw many empty sites with sewer hookups (maybe they shut them off) but there was no one available to assist at the office when I went to inquire.
The individual site was fairly well maintained, a raised platform with gravel however all the surrounding area was bogged. They definitely need to think about drainage with the yearly average rainfall.
Upon entering the washroom and shower block I was met with a sign that stated they were very proud of their washroom facility and ask for help in maintaining it. There were two toilets, one was blocked and over flowing. The floor was concrete and their was no heat whatsoever in there. I did decide to shower in the one available stall. Lighting was terribly dim and went off altogether when the timer on the wall ran out and I was left cold, naked and in the pitch black. I understand the need for timers to conserve but the whole experience was not pleasurable.
For those of you travelling with pets, although the site states its pet friendly, the dog run is extremely small and is only really suitable for dogs 25lbs and under.
The other point to note is that this place is situated at the end of a road surrounded by local residences. The smell of pot was overwhelming and the area was far from appealing.
For an unsupervised site, I was not impressed and would not recommend.
Visited in October when the facility was less than half full. So, it was quiet and we had room. Women's restroom was clean but my husband said the men's room was a mess. Couldn't take the dog for a swim in the river due to toxic algae. Worst part of facility: very limited wifi policy. First 100mb is free, than you have to pay $5 for each additional 1G. All other RV parks which we visited on our 2 week trip, which said they had wifi, provided unlimited wifi for free.
The park could use some improvements in the roads and the campsites.
The location was fantastic for seeing the redwoods and spending some time outdoors.
Camp hosts were very friendly and accommodating.
The best part of this campground is the proximity to the river and the redwoods. We had a pull-thru site and there was no privacy from the people right next to us. The bathrooms were clean and the dump station was also clean. We would stay here again if able to get a more private site.
The owners are in the process of doing upgrades. There are new bathrooms, showers and laundry. Some of the sites have been updated already. The full service sites are very close together and not very private. The other sites where we stayed are more spacious, several are pull thru but don' have sewer hookups. They do have a free dump station for campers. They also have cable and wifi. The park is easy on and off the fwy. The dog loved going to the river every day. The weather in July was hot the first few days then turned to drizzle the last few days. This park is off the Giant Redwood highway and the drive is not to be missed. We will go back again.
The bathrooms were new and clean. There were two washers and dryers for laundry. We were unable to swim in the river due to toxic blue /green algae, which was a disappointment. The full hook up sites are very close together. We were able to get the slides out, but not the awning. The park is convenienlty off the Avenue of the Giants. However, the surrounding neighborhood is poverty stricken and in the evening we could hear drunken fighting going on at one of the nearby houses. The staff was very polite and helpful. The side of the park that has just water and electricity was actually much nicer. They do have a dump station. It is a small park, but very clean and it was evident that they were doing a lot of upgrades. Playground for the kids, small metal firepits, horseshoes, volleyball, picnic bench at each RV site. We rented a car in Ukiah to use while we were there. There's a moderate sized grocery store in Garberville about 10 minutes away. We stayed for 6 days with our 3 children and 2 dogs. Lots of sites to see nearby.
