This KOA is located about 3 miles north of Crescent City. It is so pretty!!! Some of the RV sites are in the middle with most of the cabins surrounding that area. The middle section gets any sun while the cabins are under the redwoods where it is shady but it is so neat and pretty and our kids loved hiking around in the ferns & trees right next to the sites.
We stayed in one of the two-room camping cabins at this KOA campground. Our 2 kids slept in the bund beds and my husband and I slept in the queen - the mattresses were comfortable. We flew in, so we packed sheets, a couple of blankets, and pillows and that worked out really well (we would have brought sleeping bags if we drove). Each room had a little electric heater that were effective so it was comfortable. Our cabin (K6) wasn't far from the showers/rest rooms which were always clean. The cabin had a nice, covered deck with seating. The fire pits also had a picnic table and a couple of long benches which worked great. Our kids enjoyed renting the banana bikes and those were a good way for them to meet the other kids staying at the campground.
The campground has a number of tours printed out that they recommend with a bit of info about each and directions which were extremely helpful. Jedediah Smith State Park is literally 10 - 15 minutes away and was by far our favorite area. The scenary is absolutely breath-taking - we hiked the Boy Scout and Stout Grove trails. We popped up to Brookings, OR to the Harris State Park and lunch which was fun. We also drove down to the Prairie Creek Redwoods to check out Fern Canyon which was amazing. Also, Crescent City is right by the ocean and the beaches are about 10 minutes from the campsite - we had just as much fun walking on the beaches as we did in the Redwoods.
Pizza Hut delivers to the campground - we ordered pizza on our last night after most of our groceries were gone and the kids wanted to stay at the campground around the fire rather than eat in town. It sounds a bit wierd to order pizza while camping, but it worked really well! :)
Just a heads-up that the flights in and out of Crescent City are not reliable, so we won't be flying the next time and will rent a car and drive Hwy 101 from San Francisco (which we had to do because our flight into Crescent City was cancelled).
