Don't expect anything fancy, just a clean and safe place to park your RV that is close to the river. If you are in Happy Camp CA you are probably there to fish the Klamath River. This crossroads town is located about 65 miles west of Yreka with nothing in between, so if its glamor you are looking for Happy Camp ain't it! But if its fishing and a micro town atmosphere it is great. The Bigfoot RV Park offers clean easy access grass spots that are safe and quiet. The owners are helpful and friendly. They were most welcoming to us and offered us use of their phone and also put us in touch with a wonderful local Klamath river fishing guide. The restrooms are spotless, Complete with towels! The electrical hookup has 50 amps, but is a little off from where they should be, so be sure you have enough cord with you. Wi-Fi worked great, no cable anywhere up there, but gas is available and basic groceries, and of course fishing licenses are sold at the general store. We are definitely going back!

Entrance is a few miles North of Leggit on a curve, so have to watch closely for the rather un-obtrusive sign on the west side of the road. We passed it and had to turn back. The park is located on the southern end of the old highway 101, what is aptly called the "Avenue of the Giants" for its meandering passage through a fantastic Redwood forest. What made the experience for us was parking among and right under those huge Redwood trees! Wow, that was something. The only problem was that the highway was right above us and road noise spoiled the peaceful aura. I would have given it a higher score but for the road noise. It still was worth it being in those magnificent trees, and after dark, traffic diminished somewhat. Its an old facility and Wi-Fi was extra, but there are not many RV parks in the area and as mentioned the big Redwoods made it worthwhile, would stay here again just because of that.

This is an open park with lots of room for all sized rigs, right on the Klamath river. Our spot had large shade trees and a picnic table. No cable TV anywhere in this area, but fair Wi-Fi and open sky good for satellite. The staff was friendly and very helpful, even making a nightly camp fire on the rivers edge complete with fire pit and benches. There is no AT&T cell service in most of the northern CA coast, Verizon dominates. The manager graciously let us use her cell phone on several occasions to handle a family issue back home, can't say how helpful that was in making our trip stress free. As with most RV parks on a river, this one has a boat dock and fish cleaning facility. Laundry and restrooms were clean and easy access, even a club house with pool table. Close to the Big Redwoods, Trees of Mystery, well worth seeing, and Crescent City about 45 minute scenic drive North. This park was so beautiful it will be our first choice next trip that way.

Good experience staying here, friendly and helpful staff, easy access, trees and Cable TV. All the sites I saw were pull through, so no problem getting in or out even for big rigs. Picnic tables and clean restrooms. Have to say though, the entrance to the park is very un-appealing with several used rigs for sale on a dirt lot. In fact we passed it up at first but returned as it was getting late, but truth is the park itself is fine. Felt comfortable and safe. There are a lot of full timers but that was not a problem. Next time we are in Yreka we will definitely stay here.

This is great park in the Lassen National Forest, senior pass was only $7.00. Just north of Chester and lake Almanor. short drive to Lassen Park which was our end destination. Heavy forest, nearby creek. No hookups but clean restrooms. Fresh drinking water for RV fill up, but no dump station. Most sites fairly level and a few pull throughs. Easy entry from Rt 36, but have to watch close for the turn off. The Ranger station on the north end of Chester, just passed the airport and also on rt 36, can help with maps and information. Some road noise but almost none late at night. Loved the place and will definitely stay again.

This a great find during the busy camping season. We stayed there the weekend after the fourth of July. Everywhere else was booked but this nice little place had several spaces. It is heavily wooded in tall evergreens with incredible mountain views and near a rushing creek (the West Fork of the Carson river) the sound was pleasing. The sites are short, we have a 22' class C but over 24-26' could be a problem. A few spots were longer but I saw only one pull through. Not for big rigs! Tent campers and small rig paradise. No hook ups but clean restrooms, some road noise. We loved it and with senior pass $8,(US Forest Campground) a bargain. Definitely will stay here again.

This place is a steal for $15. Full hook ups, Wi-Fi and our spot had cable TV. We were told not all spaces had TV, but ours did. Several channels all on Utah time zone, but basic TV only, no premium channels. Its a small park right next to the main street, but road noise was not bad. They only have 8 or 9 spaces that are open daily so be sure to get here early: I was told by staff before 11 AM. For a nice place to park the RV in the middle of nowhere it is great! A neat feature about Ely is the operating steam train and railroad museum, by all means check that out if you like old railroad stuff.

Location is what makes this park, right outside the Bryce Canyon entrance and a VERY short drive to the main park features just a few minutes away. Some spaces were a little tight, even for our 22' class C, however scenery was beautiful and there are many attractions within walking distance. These include a general store, very nice gift shop, restaurant, rodeo grounds, gas station, etc. I might add that gasoline was priced reasonable, not any more then we found in surrounding towns. This even though it is quite remote, we liked not being taken advantage of with fuel, as in many resorts. The showers and restrooms are fantastic, spacious, well kept and clean. Problem with some of the sites however is that the sewer hook up is either on the wrong side or placed way too far forward. We wound up using our holding tank and dumping when we left. Staff was very nice. Stayed 2 days.

This is a first come, first serve campsite right at the entrance to Zion NP. We initially wanted to stay at the sister site, Watchman, which has hookups, however we did not book early enough in advance and they were filled. South Campground however did not let us down, it was beautiful and just a short walk to the visitor center. Having everything we needed in our rig, dry camping was not an issue. Generators are allowed for 2 hours both morning and evenings, that makes for a quiet park. The dump station and clean water were easy to access, as were the restrooms, but no showers. The Park employees were both friendly and helpful. We wound up staying an extra day (3 days total) and were allowed to stay where we were parked, by just paying for and then adding a new space ticket ($9.00 using the senior pass). It does fill up fast, and as others have said: get here early as we saw many RV's in holding patterns looking for an empty spot. Some sites are sloped, so be sure to bring leveling blocks.

Not much choice for hookup RV parks in Furnace Creek, this is it! The resort area is very nice, but our spot was kind of run down and backed up to a fence with a full timer trailer as a neighbor. Really not a problem though, the park was quiet and safe. No Wi-Fi and cable was not in all spots. Did have cell service though. The big draw for us was the really nice hot springs pool which is included in the nightly price. Very clean, big, deep (8' in most of it) and warm natural hot water. Most enjoyed that! The rest of the facility was pretty nice, only downside was the full time trailers at one end of the park. It has a nice general store, museum restaurants and a post office, golf and tennis. We reserved by phone a few days in advance and were told we got next to the last spot, funny because when we checked in the desk clerk said they had plenty of vacancies ??? I wonder about things like that. Still we would stay there again.

Had not planned to stay at Stovepipe Wells, but after stopping we liked the looks of the RV park and also the facilities and friendly staff. Very nice experience and would stay here again. Close to the sand dunes, which are right off the main road so we took the RV. Gas was also cheap (ER) than at Furnace Creek by over $1.00 per gallon. If you get stuck in Death Valley for gas Stovepipe Wells has the best gas prices by far. We paid $31 for the hookup variety which included a nice little continental breakfast buffet. Also has dry camping for less at the adjacent campground.

Nice secluded park with some trees and nice mountain views. Easy entry with wide sites. Close to Furnace Creek Ranch (walking distance) which has Golf, stores, Post Office, and a really nice hot springs pool (available for $5.00 per person, includes shower) Since this is a National Park campground, my senior pass allowed 1/2 price ($9.00) and Park fee. No hook-ups, but it does have a dump station and fresh water. Great for dry camping. We stayed at Furnace Creek Ranch, which has full hookups, a couple nights and then here to save a few bucks, would stay here again.

Found this place by accident, and glad we did. It has everything you'd expect from a deluxe RV park, pool, hot tub, really nice club house and store. The Wi-Fi worked great and cable TV. Close to the Death Valley turn-off in Lone Pine with a killer view of the High Sierras. Back from the road and quiet. Definitely stay here again

This is a small, and very clean park with nice trees, easy access and friendly staff. It's close to the Highway, but noise at night was not bad. The hot springs was our draw, and they were great. The pools are small, housed in 3 separate ancient railroad buildings with varying temperatures and sand floors. Primitive and private with lockable doors and small dressing areas. Even though very old, the place had character, was immaculate and very well maintained. We felt safe staying there after a weeks tour of Death Valley. Definitely stay there again.
