When one is able to enjoy the scenery, the Redwood Highway Scenic Drive, “parallels the rugged Pacific coast, passing redwood groves and the wave-carved shoreline of beaches, cliffs and sea stacks.”
Must stops are the Redwood National and State Parks … however, we found a couple closed yesterday when we were searching for a place to camp.
We ended up at the private, family-run “Giant Redwoods RV Camp” in Myers Flat that sits on the South Fork of the Eel River. Jimmy just checked the River and says, “It has probably come in 20-feet from where I placed a marker last night. Overall I’d guess it’s risen about 4-5-feet.”
The price here was $34/electricity, water, hot showers … state parks are $35/’dry’ camping.
BTW if venturing this way, be sure to check the latest flood and wind advisories.
For the latest in camping information.
