We fell in love with the Crescent City / Redwoods KOA nestled among 10 acres of redwood forest. It had everything you’d expect from a KOA franchise, but had the natural beauty of a state or national park. It really was the best of both worlds.
Watch the short video below to see the highlights.
I definitely wouldn’t call this location big rig friendly, so we were glad that we recently downsized from our 44’ toy hauler. Our smaller Arctic Fox Fifth Wheel and truck fit perfectly in our pull-thru spot with full hook-ups (power, water, and sewer).
For even smaller rigs, there were back-in sites right under the trees in the Redwood Forest section, alongside little cabins and tent sites.
The walking paths winding through the redwoods were the best part of this campground to me.
However, they did have all the standard amenities like Wifi, laundry facilities, 2 bath houses, in addition to a general store, game room, dog park, and playground. They even had a lot of information with detailed instructions on self-guided scenic drives and local hikes.
The famous redwood trees are the main attraction in this area. Just a short drive from the campground is Redwood National and State Parks, a unique combination of national park and 4 California State Parks conserving old growth forests, beaches and grasslands along Northern California’s coast.
While here, we also enjoyed a visit to Battery Point Lighthouse, a registered California Historical Landmark. The light house is on a tiny island that you could walk out to during low tide. Afterwards we went over to the harbor to watch the sea lions sun bathing and then to enjoy some fresh seafood at Crescent Seafood, a locally owned restaurant.
This campground was full even in the late spring (after spring break and before summer break), so be sure to make your reservations early. You can do that online or by calling 707-464-5744.
