This is a "bare bones" facility at the county fairgrounds. Restrooms were quite clean - showers fairly clean (but I kept my flip-flops on to shower. Shower at the end got hotter quicker. Electrical outlets for hair dryers, etc., available. Full hook ups and dry camping are available. Dry camping is $15/night. The bathrooms are locked up on weekends unless the weekend worker opens them for you, which he did. We pulled in about 3 pm and checked the "self sign in kiosk" but there were no check in envelopes available. Luckily, we had some, and put our check in there. The weekend worker came to check on us (to see if we needed anything) at about 7 pm. Apologized for not checking with us earlier but, because of the fires, they were busy readying the back pasture for horses to be brought in from ranches in the burning areas! The gate on Crest St. Closes at 9 pm. This is the easiest access to RV Park. 50/30/20 available in electric, easy to access sewer line and water. Is it scenic? No - but a great place to spend a couple of days to see Crater Lake and other parks. Personnel very friendly. Bring mosquito spray! A previous patron mentioned flies, but we had none. But we did have mosquitoes! No shade. But in July highs were mid/high 80's, lows in the 50's. There are dog poop bags at the little sign-in kiosk. No fenced pet run, but plenty of grass area between the pull-thru FHU spaces and the back-in dry camp spaces. Lots of trash cans for trash in FHU area. Well lit at night - so if you have a hard time sleeping with lights, bring window blockers or a sleep mask! Spaces are fairly level and gravel, a little lower around the utilities. I would definitely stay here again if in the area. Just need to check to see if there are events that might impact availability. We camped at Klamath County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Our third stay here. We always enjoy the quiet area surrounded by trees. Yes, the 101 hwy is very close but you rarely hear anything but big trucks - and they aren't that bad. As previous reviewers have said, many things to do at the clubhouse should you wish to meet your fellow campers. We always like the Saturday Pot Luck. Sites are very long, but not wide enough for you to step out of your rig onto level gravel. You step out onto the grass. Because of the rabbits (and gophers) the grass areas (especially in the back-in areas) are quite "lumpy" and you have to be very careful not to twist an ankle. The pull-thrus seem to be a bit less "holey" overall. A closed-in dog park is available. Doggy-doo bags are available to clean up after your pet and (unlike other places we've stayed) were NEVER empty! We were there during sun and rain. The rain was light, however, so potholes weren't an issue. The staff is VERY good at keeping the grass down (they pretty much mow every rain-free day so bring your allergy medicine!), and if something was not working (ie. a dryer in the laundry) it was pretty much fixed by the next day! If you come in northbound, there are trees blocking the sign which makes for a sharp left-hand turn. There IS a turn lane, though. We were in a 37' RV with toad. Plenty of room at the front entrance (after going thru the gate and across the bridge) to disconnect the toad before going to your site. The back-in sites will get more shade - the pull through's more sun. So you've got your choice! Electric is 30/50 (50 amp is extra $) water and sewer included. TV is extra (hit and miss for quality) and WiFi, while good, is charged per 1MB (not by the day). A pretty large lending library is available and DVDs can be checked out. Lots of board games available too. Pool, spa, sauna are great - also have a small workout room. Our "cost" of $0.00 was because of our Resorts of Distinction membership. We will definitely return! We camped at Neskowin Creek RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Must be a member of the Elks (BPOE) to utilize. Campground has back-in and pull-thrus. Nice park. There is a place to walk the doggies with "doggy-doo" bags available. Very nice Elks Lodge with a great restaurant and bar. Even music and dancing on some weekend nights. Laundry with 2 washers and 2 dryers. The laundry room is where the one bathroom is. No shower. We were in a 37' RV. Plenty of room to park our toad either in front of our pull-thru site or in the extra parking area near the camp host. We'd definitely stay here again when visiting the Salem, Oregon, area. We camped at Elks Lodge #2472 in a Motorhome.

This is a lovely, quiet RV park between the highway (which you cannot hear very much at all) and the beach/lagoon. The big draw is the herd of Roosevelt Elk which come by almost daily to graze in the grass near (and sometimes IN) the campground. One morning I counted 48 elk in the herd. Sites are spacious, very green (in May), and close enough to Trinidad, CA to go eat at the Trinidad Cafe who (in my opinion) has the BEST clam chowder anywhere! The staff are very friendly and helpful, and go out of their way to solve any problems you may have during your stay. Another definite "plus" is the "500 Club" - if you plan to stay often during a year's time. For $500, you get four weeks with the only blackout period being the 4th of July weekend! Yes, we are 500 Club Members, as we come here one or two times a year from Arizona! The spaces are mostly grass, with a bit of gravel where you pull your rig through (on the pull throughs). They have spaces to back into, also. Each spot has a fire ring and a picnic table. We stayed in "The Meadow," and our space was full sun. There are back-in spaces that are under trees, should you prefer. The wifi was being upgraded during our stay, but was pretty darned good, most of the time! They have 3 washing machines and 3 dryers - with $3.00 cost for wash, and $0.25 per 6 minutes for dry. Machines are kept in very good shape. I believe my husband left a review also, and mistakenly put $50 as the cost for the pull through. It is really $40.80 including tax. Back in sites are a little less. We will definitely be returning, as we enjoy the relaxing ambiance of the campground. We camped at Elk Country RV Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
Trinidad Cafe in Trinidad, CA - BEST Clam Chowder! Murphy's Grocery Store in Trinidad, CA - Weekends they have outdoor BBQ with tri-tip sandwiches, half a chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, and Andouille sausage sandwiches -- all REALLY good! Fishing or kayaking in Stone Lagoon, Big Lagoon, or the Fresh Water lagoon.
