We left the Thousand Trails Preserve at South Beach, OR on Wednesday to begin our "slow" movement toward Arizona for the winter season. Neither Karen nor I had ever seen redwoods, so we decided to head toward the redwoods in northern California.
We arrived in Klamath, CA (about 20 miles south of Crescent City) on Wednesday afternoon after driving thru rain the entire drive. I'm really not a fan of driving in the rain, but after the last few days of continuous rain in South Beach, OR, a change was definitely needed.
RvParkReviews.com and checking the Passport America listings we selected the Golden Bear RV park. Most of the parks in the area are described as "fish camps" because of the proximity to the Klamath River and the salmon fishing in the river. Many times, fish camps might be considered a bit on the rough side, but Golden Bear RV Park is actually pretty nice, and the price was right at $15 per night for full hook-ups.
Yurok Indian Tribe who have lived near and fished these waters for centuries.
We ended a great day by watching the fisherman, seals, birds, and the surf rolling in until the sun began to set. Tomorrow we hope to explore the area and visit some of the nearby parks containing the redwood trees.
Thanks for dropping by to take a look!
