Klamath Camper Corral is located on the north side of the Klamath River just past the "Golden Bear Bridge" on Highway 101, 18 miles south of Crescent City. Our 100 full RV hook-ups, 24 water/electric sites and almost 50 tent sites are just a short walk through the forest to the River. The Klamath River is famous for its salmon, steelhead and perch fishing opportunities.
The Klamath Camper Corral is the perfect "launching spot" for day trips to the many National Redwood Park areas, numerous hiking and biking trails, and a half dozen beautiful ocean beaches that align the Pacific Ocean from Crescent City to Orick (18 miles to the south). In between are elk, bird and wildlife populations that are second to none! Seasonally, there can be some whales to watch too!
The Park offers a swimming pool, hot showers, laundry facility, recreation hall and children's playground area. Our Wi-Fi is somewhat limited but you can check your e-mail and surf the web. Dogs are amongst our very best friends when they conduct themselves as the good citizens that their owners are, and we've been known to have a guest cat or two. There are bears in the area and while we definitely do not encourage them to get close, there's a pretty good chance you'll get to see one somewhere along the path of your travels!
George and Elizabeth Badasci purchased Klamath Camper Corral in September of 2015. George comes from the central California area around Hanford where he operated a number of tire services and agricultural businesses. Elizabeth grew up in the northern California ranching community of Alturas and then lived in Reno where she owned and operated an advertising company. The couple enjoy lots of activities and have a small ranch in the Cottonwood area where they run a few cattle and have planted 250 pecan trees. The idea of owning an RV park hadn't entered their minds but then they discovered this Park three years ago and since then it's been a very busy time! George's son, George Jr. and his son George III, live on the park and handle the day to day operations. A few other family members and a couple of friends help the four run the park during the very busy season which begins around May 15th and runs through Labor Day. Things can continue to stay very busy through September and October when the fishing is especially good along the Klamath and other close by rivers, as well as, out in the ocean.
