Round ‘Em Up!

Camper Corral 1Our RV home location since August 2 (leaving on August 16) has been the Klamath Camper Corral RV Park smack dab in the middle of the Redwood National and State parks of northern California.  The park has a different approach for RV spots; they have you park on the grass--most places want to keep you off the grass.  It is really quite nice with lots of trees and blackberry bushes.  And August is the time for ripe blackberries—Sweet!

The place is huge with around 25 acres allowing for lots of room between sites.  Really, it feels like a close friend or relative’s acreage  with lots of room to run and play.  So laid back.   They have a big barn with a pool table, ping pong, and a pizza parlor inside.  Outside includes shuffle board, a basketball court, and small swimming pool.  This seems to be a big family reunion destination and a fisherman’s paradise (you can walk to the Klamath River) and everyone is having a good time.  You would expect it to be noisy; but promptly at 10 p.m, it is lights out and the place is quiet.   And extremely dark—we are miles from any major populated area.

There are several black bears that come into the campground at night, but we have yet to see them.  Apparently, they make the rounds to the fish cleaning station, the garbage cans and back through the blackberry bushes that surround the campground.  One night we left grease in our BBQ drip pan and they licked it clean leaving a few claw marks on the tin.  So, yes, we believe they are here.
