This is a great RV park, and deserves a 5 star rating, except for the WI-FI. It is not easy to access. You have to have a coupon code to get in, and have them email you a password to get into later! Most of our group didn't even bother with it! Some didn't have e-mail! This should be simplified! Seems to be a ploy for Tengo internet to get e-mail addresses!

The facility has good separation with grass yards good for doggy. The roads and site pads are paved and in good condition. All 50 amp service for big rigs are taken up by full timers. We were fine but if in summer A/C would be difficult. Laundry and restrooms are really old but clean. Mostly quiet with some road noise. Pool/spa area looked clean we did not use it. Lost one star due to lousy Internet. Cable TV is excellent.

A must-stop for us on US 101. Arcata lovely town, friends nearby. Sites are fairly well spaced. There are a number of longer term stays but park is almost always quiet. Well maintained lawns until this year (4th year of drought), but they should come back when it rains. Did I mention the excellent Mexican restaurant adjacent to the park (closed Sundays).

Stayed here for 5 days to visit with grandkids nearby. Helpful staff, clean facilities. Only issue was the internet was needing upgraded since it kept freezing up. We will be back soon.

This was our second stay at this park, we liked the pool and spa which influenced our return. A car full of local children parked between the pool and the RV sites and occupied the pool until about one hour before closing. There are a number of "Yum Yum" trees that deposit a juicy fruit that sticks to your shoes and tracks into your unit. The grounds crew did clean the area upon request, but we spent most of our two days cleaning our shoes and indoor carpet.
