This is an immaculate little campground that sits along side the Klamath River and borders Redwoods National Park just off Hwy 101. The Klamath area caters to fishermen and there are docks and a fish cleaning station available for use at the park. The laundry, bathrooms/showers, and clubhouse are spotless. There are several small flower gardens that are lovingly tended and repeat campers like to lend a helping hand. There are 2 campground hosts who take pride in the park as do the owners. For some reason this campground attracts high end Class A rigs, although there were tenters who actually had the prime spots fronting the river. We sat in chairs that were provided along the river to watch a whale that had come up the river by mistake. As soon as a camper leaves, the host or owner is there to make sure the campsite is clean and ready for the next camper.
There are only a few downsides to this park. The first is the extremely tight turn coming off the frontage road going into the park, although no one seemed to have troubles with it (there were plenty of big rigs) and there are several warning signs before entry. The other negative is common to many of the campgrounds in the area. All the sites are on grass. This is probably because the Klamath River is prone to flooding and grass is the cheapest, easiest, and quickest to replace as opposed to gravel. However, the grass makes the ground uneven and leveling a rig can be a challenge. If it rains, there could be a problem with getting stuck in the mud. Also, wi-fi is not included, although cable is. Wi-fi is available for $2 a day.
This campground is a Coast to Coast Park, although we were told that they plan on discontinuing their association with C2C next year. Sites with a river view get charged a premium rate. We went for a cheaper site which backed up to the forest and still had full hookups. We loved it. The sites are very close together, although they try to fill only every other site when they're not busy.
We camped here in a 5th wheel and will camp here again. This is a seasonal campground that is only open fro May 1st through October. It's the right campground on this river.
