Stay Here

Well screened and large campsites with tables and fire rings Mine was in the FF (first come, first served) section on the creek. There are well maintained hiking trails through out the magnificent Redwoods forest and excellent trail signage Showers and toilets clean. Friendly,helpful staff. Stayed mid-Nov. for two nights at $33 per.

Trails to Beach

Just outside of Brookings,Oregon on Rt. 101, this well kept campground was a welcome two day layover during the rainy weather that’s typical of the PNW during mid-November. My $24,no services site was C6 in the FF (first come, first served) loop. Located next to a trail to the beach, well screened with bushes and trees and close to the showers, it was the best of all.

Closed Down Mid October

but I boondocked anyway as the lone camper in a great spot with awesome views. A maize of high desert gravel roads provided excellent hiking opportunities and access to a beach on the lake.

Probably a wonderful campground

but when I stayed for one night in early Oct. on a cross country trip the wind was gusting at 40 to 60 mph, it was very cold and water was shut off. The sites were large, wooded and clean all with tables and fire rings. There were flush toilet facilities in each area and trash dumpsters. It was the first high elevation coming out of Nebraska and it left me breathless as in gasping for air. I think there were several good hiking opportunities, but left for another time.

Stay Here

Driving cross country, this was my favorite campground. I had a large, private site that had a mowed path leading to the lake. The large lake is beautifully landscaped with walking bridges made from recycled iron and memorial trees of many varieties. There is about a two mile trail circumventing the entire lake. I was there in early October so the weather was too chilly to use the nice beach. Great shower house.

Sites on top of each Other

OK, I can deal with minimal privacy, but I’m a hiker and I got seriously lost on the woods trails due to very poor sinage. I was pretty furious when I finally stumbled out of the woods and met up with a couple of maintenance men who heard me lecture loud and clear on the importance of sinage. Be very careful hiking at this place. There’s a great well defined walk to the beach. It included a boardwalk that skirts a wetland restoration project that is impressive.

Not for me

This is an amazing place. I felt like I had arrived at a cult gathering. Lots of kids on bikes and families having fun. Sounded like live music after dark accompanied by whooping and hollering and people having fun. I hiked with my dogs before leaving and got lost for awhile. The place is big. Did not go into shower or any Other facility. This is a certain kind of place but not for me. Sites on top of each other.

Would have stayed longer

But I was there in early October for only one night on my way through. It was a busy place with lots of RVs, but my campsite was in a field bordered by wild flowers at the end of the campground with no one else around. Over the hill was a beautiful and unique golf course set in the woods. I was told I could walk my dogs there and I did. Also hiked a short Trail that led to a stream and over a little bridge. Very charming. Shower was OK - nothing to wtite home about - and there was water and an out house near my site. A really nice experience.

Disappointed

This is a wonderful campground. The sites are well designed and some are really special. The reason I gave it only three stars has to do with pets. Dogs are not allowed on any hiking trails. They are allowed, however, on the paved bicycle trail which felt dangerous for both dogs and bicyclists. My 17 year old cat is a well seasoned camper. He free ranges around where he feels comfortable and always knows where home lies. The Camp Ranger ordered my cat to be leashed. That was a first in four months of camping and I knew it would not go well. We were going to stay for one week but left after only one night. Disappointed.

Beach

Located on a bluff above the Colorado River and surrounded by canyon cliffs. Great beach across the street for fishing, swimming or kayaking. About two miles beyond, is a put in place for white water rafting. Several good hiking choices. Sites have sun shades, tables and fire rings. Water, trash, bathrooms (no shower) and dump station available. Boat Tail Grackles were very friendly. Great spot.

Hiking Trails Connect

Great for dogs and hikers. Did laundry, took much needed shower. Both facilities spotless. Friendly Staff went out of their way to help with printing a document. Plenty of trees around, and sites have usual amenities. Like most KOAs, it is located off a heavily trafficed road.
