Crescent City / Redwoods KOA, Crescent City, California

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Decided to sit out 3 days of rain and high winds at this KOA in the redwoods. Stocked up at the grocery in Crescent City, this KOA is just north on Hwy 101. We arrived around noon and there was nobody in the office (locked) so we just used a night time check in envelope and took spot 203, which was one of the recommended spots for latecomers. Stuck the envelope in the slot with our card number and they emailed us the receipt. Honored our KOA discount so it came to $121.00 for 3 nights. The sites are gravel and close with a few bushes and trees in between. The bathrooms are very clean and private with individual shower stalls. A space heater hanging from the ceiling was very appreciated. The laundry has 4 nice washers and 6 dryers so it was a great place to get our laundry done. The lady at the desk was very friendly. We mostly stayed inside the RV due to the rain, made soup and planned our next trip.We had power and water hookup. Free wifi was good and 2 bars with ATT. Sites are close and gravel and unpaved. Picnic tables and fire rings at each site but very close together. They had cabins and tent sites in the woods but it was dark and cold in there during this time. Very conveniently located and lots of attractions nearby. They rent bikes near the office and sell firewood and souvenirs and some supplies in the office. We camped at Crescent City / Redwoods KOA in a Motorhome.

Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park - Gold Bluffs Beach Campground, Orick, California

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

It's worth the drive is your rig is under 25 feet and without a trailer. The campground is smack on the beach, about 2 miles from the entrance station. Very friendly folks at the entrance, just pick a spot and hike or bike the 2 miles back to let them know the number, since we didn't have any ATT signal here. The Campground loop has 26 sites and one of the sites #26 is a pull-through, though nothing longer than 24 feet allowed and no trailers. About 60% of occupied sites were tent camping. Lots of space between the sites and each one has a picnic table and fire ring, as well as a bear locker, emphasis on "Crumb Clean". All sites are completely open with no trees overhead, just beach with some driftwood bordering the sites. Private flush toilets and hot shower (free), one shower was not operating. The fog rolls in at night and the ocean waves against the beach and wildlife were the only sounds at night. We hiked to Fern Canyon in the morning. The canyon is a 2 mile hike from the campground. The foot bridges were already out for the season so we prepared to get our feet wet. Fern Canyon is an incredibly beautiful hike. The sight of the ferns covering the canyon is spectacular, well worth the wet feet in the off season. We camped at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park - Gold Bluffs Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park - Elk Prairie Campground, Orick, California

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at this beautiful park Oct 15, 16 after failing to find an empty spot at another park. On our first pass through at Elk Prairie, we got a little worried because many of the sites are shady and narrow due to the massive redwoods, mossy trees, huge ferns and narrow roads. Some sites are partially paved and dirt, many not level, but we grabbed one of the larger sites where we pulled in next to a massive fern and managed to block up to level. Best not to attempt if you are more than 25'. It was very cool and dark under the trees and our solar panels were starved for sunlight. No ATT signal, you could hook up to wifi for free at the visitor center near the entrance to the park. The elk, of course, were ever present near the prairies along the Newton Drury Parkway which fronts the camp. There is plenty of parking and many cars stop along the parkway to watch the animals and take photos. A herd of "bachelors" hung out in the fields closer to the camp and there was a herd of cows and younger ones with a large bull at a field less than a mile away. They were very slow moving and seemed rather accustomed to people, but you are warned repeatedly not to approach them. If you want to see elk, this is the place. The were 2 showers each for women and men, the handicapped one was larger. Also flush toilets at the bath house. The showers got hot after 2 quarters, and were private and clean. You can pick up an envelope and deposit your camping fee at the building near the bathhouse, next to the camp host trailer. Folks were really nice and they have lots of helpful information about the trails and local attractions. Hiking is really beautiful here, everywhere. Giant redwoods, tall ferns, mossy. We camped at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park - Elk Prairie Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We biked from Elk Prairie Campground to Davison Trail, Strelow Creek and up the western part of Davison Road to the Gold Bluffs Beach Campground on the California Coastal Trail to check it out. On the way back to Prairie Elk we tackled Davison Road. Yikes!! quite a challenge on a bicycle. We were rewarded at the bottom of the hill with a herd of elk in the field at the Prairie Creek Day Use are. What a sight!

Carl G Washburne Memorial State Park, Florence, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Another nice Oregon State Park. Lots are nicely spaced and there is plenty of vegetation for privacy between sites. It was cloudy and raining when we arrived. We stayed at a full hook-up site (55) which had a nice picnic table and fire pit. There was no wifi or ATT signal. We hiked across the road to the beach trail and experienced a nice sunset. The trail to the beach, Hobbit Trail, is lush with moss and ferns, such beautiful sights. The walk along the beach was at low tide and we enjoyed the water and carved cliffs. Popular landmark Haceda Head Lighthouse is nearby. The bathrooms were okay, they had free push button showers and in October it took 3 squirts to get it hot. * 41 full-hookup sites (first come, first served) * 14 electrical sites with water (first come, first served) * Seven walk-in tent sites (closed seasonally) * Hiker/biker camp * Two reservable yurts (one pet-friendly) * Flush toilets and hot showers * RV dump station in day-use area * Firewood for sale We camped at Carl G Washburne Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.
