Campground Review: Florence Keller CG

This is a brief overdue review of the  Florence Keller County Park Campground, located at  3400 Cunningham Lane, Crescent City, California 95531, GPS: 41.80302, -124.15176.  No reservations are taken or honored.  $15 per night.

We stayed here a few weeks ago before heading north into Oregon, and while we have now stayed at a wide variety of camping locations, we wanted to note this one in particular as it is a standout.

This is a county run campground, as as such seems to be less known and therefore less utilized, and yet it's located right in the heart of a beautiful stand of giant Redwood trees.  The campsites are nicely isolated from each other by virtue of all of the giant trees.  There are no RV hookups or dump, but there are fresh water spigots spaced well throughout, and a $5 RV dump in town just a couple of miles down the road at the fairgrounds.

The few nights we spent here were beautiful.  There is a stream that runs through the park, a network of trails and bridges worth exploring, and two nice picnic/day use/playground areas.  We met some lovely people here, including a family from  Switzerland whom we thoroughly enjoyed chatting and visiting with.

The downed section of tree trunk is larger than our trailer 

There is plenty of room for tents, and the combination of gorgeous scenery, low density of other campers, and low price make this a great campground value that we will certainly return to when we are in that area again.

Where's Waldo?
