We stayed here a week and enjoyed it quite a bit. The buy-in RV parking is challenging. We had a back-up spot which back up to a hedge of bushed and thorns. What made it difficult was the limited area to turn. Additionally, once we parked, there was no place near our RV to park our truck - had to park it by a play ground area. The worse thing was that the lower pole is shared by your neighbor, leaving very little room in between - I could not extend my awning without hitting the neighbor's RV. Likewise, I had to run my electric and water under the RV to reach the utilities. The place was quiet and there was no road noise. There was cable TV and the Wi-Fi was fair. - J Tucker

This is a very small privately-owned park which is designed primarily for smaller RVs with a few sites for larger rigs. The smaller sites have a nice grass areas along each site, but the sites for larger RVs are basically dusty dirt/minimal gravel sites and the interior roads are the same with some low hanging branches which need to be trimmed. Our site was level but we noticed for the pull through on the other end, they had to use 4 rows of blocks on one side to level their 5th wheel. The road off of Hwy 101 leading to the park is paved but rough. Utilities worked well and the park staff was courteous. The sites are pretty much all in a clearing but the tall neighboring trees blocked satellite signals. Verizon and Sprint signals both were okay but the park WIFI never worked from our site. The best thing going for this park is the low Passport rate. If ever in the area again we will look for someplace else as there appears to be several other better options in the immediate area. - GrandpaDan

Great campground! Open and clean, gravel roads and pads, each site has a patch of well manicured grass. Mature trees (some 2500 years old)! The staff is excellent, very friendly and helpful. Store has basics plus eggs from free range campground chickens. Great free WIFI, some of the best we've had. The Sat. night Chicken and (really fresh) Salmon BBQ is the best! It's amazing how the owner gets the best talent to come the end of the road in the middle of the Redwoods to play at the BBQ. Oh, and the breakfast burritos are great. Fresh and made to order! - BevnLes

This is a lovely wide open campground in the middle of Giant redwoods. You park on grass, and there is plenty of length. You may not find it necessary to unhook your tow vehicle. The owner is friendly and helpful, with site seeing ideas. This is also a great area for fishing! There is internet, but spotty, as it is Hughsnet. - sse

For the facilities, it is a little over priced. The big draw is the wide open spaces and places for parking boats. I used a guide and do not have a boat. - Rocky 2

Stayed with a motor home group and used clubhouse. Very friendly, helpful personnel. Personnel are fishermen and have referrals for fishing guides and have clean, lighted fish cleaning station. Very fisher friendly.
Nice club house with ping-pong table.
RV park WIFI is very inadequate. Verizon phone coverage is marginal. ATT phone is spotty and not dependable. - cdouglas

- 2 stars - the river view was the best thing this place has going for it The check in process was easy and we were directed to our River View site. We parked on a grass pad, which management requested that we limit the outside mat to the size of a standard door mat. The view was very nice. The down side to this facility was very poor internet access and their bathrooms... the main bathroom doors were not coded, no separation between the men's urinals, no doors on the showers... just curtains. Not a very private experience. - TurtleShell

There is a very nice view of river. I had no WIFI of cell service . Short 1 mile drive to get cell service. You will need to unhook Tow just up the road to make sharp turn into park. If your over 40' . There is a large turn out 1/2 mile or so we used to unhook and hook tow car. - RHOWARD

THIS PLACE...just awesome. Sites are a little tight, but we had some of the friendliest neighbors we've ever had (even though they were windshield-shaming me until I cleaned mine LOL!) and one of the best views we've ever had while RVing. Incredible stay, looking forward to going back and spending more time. - Brian Holmes

This park is older, quiet, with large trees, but the front is dominated by a bunch of old RVs in storage plus a large workshop area with accumulated junk all around it. Our electric service is supposed to be 30 amps, but we kept tripping the breaker at much lower levels. Wifi is sporadic, generally poor when the park fills up. We kept getting a worrisome message from Frontier that the DNS servers were changing, with links we were afraid to use. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the park served us well for touring the area. - ghopgd

We stayed here for 3 nights. Campsites are mostly grassy pull thrus with trees, but there are a few back-in sites in the forest. Ours was one of the grassy sites with a large redwood tree on each side of us. Hookups worked fine, 30 amp electricity, good water pressure, free wifi was good but sometimes faded in and out. Owners were super friendly and helpful. The lady that checked us in said to come back after we got setup and she spent at least 10 minutes giving us maps of the area and marking places of interest that we might want to see. Things that we would not have known about if we had not stayed here, such as a spectacular vista point at the end of a one lane road that overlooked the mouth of the Klamath river as it flowed into the Pacific. Trees of Mystery is less than a mile north of the campground and Crescent City is 14 miles north. Instead of Trees of Mystery, I recommend driving up to Crescent City and driving the Howland Hill Road. It is a 10 mile dirt road that winds thru huge redwoods. The road is pretty rough, cars with low clearance should probably avoid this road. Stop at Scout Tree Trail and also Scout Grove for beautiful walks thru fern covered ground and magnificent redwoods. No AT&T signal at all in this area, but the owner said that Verizon and US Cellular did have good signal here. We would stay here again. - corgi1

Pulled in last minute, after a change of plans. The staff woman was courteous and knowledgeable. She warned that the tent campground was likely to be muddy, and seemed surprised when we booked it on a rainy night. We stayed in a campsite with a large hollowed out redwood. Most of the campsites have a vegetation buffer allowing a sense of privacy. - grandcanyondave

This park is easy to get in and out. Roads are gravel and sites are grass. Sites are level and utilities worked well. WiFi currently only works in or very close to the office but works well there. Verizon extended network was ok. The office, little store and sitting area has been fixed up and is nice. Restrooms are nothing fancy but fine other than not kept clean as they got no attention at all in our four days. Laundry had one old washer and one newer one with dryers old and inefficient. No problem with satellite anywhere in the park. There are a couple chairs and a deck by the river to enjoy the view and sunset. This is your average RV park with a nice setting on the river. It is not a resort and if you are not right on the river it is nothing special. - cwier

If you are looking for “glamping”, find a different, but less pleasing park.
I cannot state how much we loved staying here! There are long-time campers who have been coming to Chinook since the 50’s and still love it! If I had grown up anywhere within driving distance of Chinook RV Resort, I would have loved coming here as a child, then bringing my kids here now - the nightly campfire is wonderful! Everyone gets together, shares stories, and gets to know each other.
We met some of the most personable campers here than we’ve met anywhere else. Our kids were welcomed with open arms, and we all got hugs the morning we left.
This park is close to Jedidiah Smith State Park, where the redwoods are just breathtaking! We’ve even compared Sequoia NP and Kings Canyon NP to it, but Jedidiah Smith, just north of Klamath, wins hands down!
I would recommend this park to anyone, whether staying long term or even just a few days. - Stacy Soller

Stopped for an overnight stop - did not unhitch. Wifi did not work while we were there and this was one of the main reason's we stopped there as they were supposed to have good wifi. Sights were pretty tight - cable did work so guess it was OK for 1 night stay but probably would not stay there again. - Fun chasers

Sites on the riverfront are not configured for back-in but pull-in, so your motorhome windshield is filled with the Klamath River and hills beyond. Very nice. Great management team. Wi-fi was rather weak. You are right on US 101 so there is a bit of highway noise. - SteveSox
Aug 2017 - $30.00
Owners are very nice and helpful. We were able to rent the last space available. The roads are paved and the site was grassy. We were next to the highway, which is the only bad I have to say about this site. There was not a lot of traffic overnight so noise was not bad. Beautiful location on the river. I had internet service through my Verizon hotspot. - Old Traveler-66

Bathrooms,laundry filthy. Feces in men's bathroom on toilet, was not cleaned the two days we were there. Laundry waste basket full when we used it.
Ok, if you don't mind putting down $20 deposit for restrooms and can stand being in them! We wouldn't stay here again or recommend to anyone. - Geezer traveler

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. - Ginalo

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. - Ginalo

No hookups We drove up the Redwood Highway and stayed at the Elk Prairie Campground in this beautiful State Park. There is another campground on the ocean, but it is more primitive and the roads are not all paved to get to it. Elk Prairie has some very nice sites along the Prairie Creek but since they have had a lot of rain this past winter some sites were a little muddy. Our site backed up to the creek and it was private with water and trash disposal within walking distance. There are many hikes in the park from the campground and along the scenic ten mile drive where the huge Redwoods line the road with pullouts. The park itself has a bathhouse with pay showers, Visitor Center and a huge meadow where the Roosevelt Elk can be spotted eating. This is one of the best places to spot these Elk. We did not see any when we checked in around noon but at 5 and 7 there were about 11 Elk feeding. When we walked back from our site at 7 the Elk were so close to the campground road that a number of German Tourists were clicking away and got some great shots. So glad we stopped for an overnight and we could have spent many more days here. - gsnakehill

Beautiful area surround by redwoods and a stream nearby. Bathrooms are clean as are the showers. There are also 2 accessible restrooms that include showers. There is a large meadow where elk graze. Alongside the meadow are wooden benches perfect for watching the animals. - Mainlygoing

Location is top notch: gigantic redwoods and weeds are all around you. Like another review noticed you kind of live a hobbit movie here. Getting there is not that difficult, hosts are kind and helpful. Sites are all different in size and type, are about level, and fire ring and table are there, just like water spigots. Restrooms and showers are there. But the restrooms are very tired and the shower still need quarters. There's no electricity. BUT, for european visitors this is an amazing campground. I'll remember its almost magic atmosphere, its trails and above all its awe inspiring trees for a very long time. We camped here for two nights in a 27ft motorhome. If opportunity knocks I'll be back there. - Eisenga

$17 with Golden Age, no hookups, bathhouses with pay showers, dump station site 45 This park and campground just opened for the season when we drove in and it wasn't on reservations until the following weekend. There is another campground in this huge park on the beach but the roads are not paved. The roads in this campground need to be repaved - many potholes. Beautiful park with some stunning sites. Our site was a nice back in with two big Redwood Stumps in our site and we could hear the creek in the back. There are sites in this park right on the creek, a number of tent sites where you walk up steps to put pitch your tent, a few pull through sites and some good for small vans or just tents. Our 25ft RV is just at the peak size so that we could fit in the majority of the sites. This was a mill village located here decades ago before where they stripped cleaned the forest of the massive redwoods, so now it's just the new growth with some huge Redwoods Stumps. Everyone raves about the campsites here and there is a curvy road that leads into campground for about two miles. The road was an easy drive in. Recycle, trash bins and water spigots located all over the campground. The hosts claim that this park does fill up in the summer so reservations are recommended. We would return to this campground. This is a State Park financed by the Federal Government so the Golden Age Pass is accepted. A number of hiking trails in the park and only 6.8 miles from the nice town of Crescent City. It is located on the Redwood Highway in northern CA. - gsnakehill

We stayed 4 nights and had a great time exploring! My kids loved finding the snails & banana slugs on all our hikes. Our site was a little difficult to get into with a trailer, but we managed with no real problems. The Redwood trees are amazing and are present all around us. We love to camp directly in the parks we're visiting so that we can take in a Ranger program or 2. Steep road in & out, but manageable. Would definitely stay again. Note that there is an $8 transaction fee if reserving online. - jmholton

Orman is a piece of heaven along the coast. Most of the other nearby RV facilities are just parking lots that charge a lot. Orman provides very large spots, though it is dry camping. Owner does provide clean out houses through out the park and water spigots are dispersed throughout the camping sites. We are self contained and we thoroughly enjoyed the quiet, clean and beautiful large spot that we are assigned to. Each site had a nice picnic table, fire pit and some wood in the site. One note...cell phone signal is a little challenged, though we have a booster which helped. - Carried Away

This is a unique and fun "off the grid" park, a bit rustic and very different. It attracts "horse folks" as there are corrals for parking your steeds, and nearby to horse trails into the redwoods. A couple of "rescue horses" are permanent residents. This is a private "family owned" park, and the hosts are a lot of fun. Sites are VERY large and natural. Some sites are in the forest, others in the meadows. The park is very quiet and not too far from the town of Crescent City (easy bike ride). There is free WIFI in the 'lounge' and restrooms and showers. Cell service is a bit sketchy, but check with the hosts to locate the "hot spots" within the park. Build a campfire and relax! An elk herd prowls the area nearby. You can hear the ocean and the whistle on the jetty at the harbor entrance about 1 mile away. Nice! - Sub_sailor
