Hiouchi RV Resort

I committed to review the campgrounds we stay in - and I haven't reviewed Hiouchi yet.  IF you'd like to see more photos of Hiouchi and area, our latest stay was 13 Sept - 25 Sept. You can click through the blog archive.

Hiouchi RV Resort is located off Hwy 199 in a park-like setting.  It is about 9 miles from Crescent City, CA. We have come to learn the full-hook up RV spots are SPACIOUS by RV standards. The A, B and D loops all border nice fields.

The space behind our site on D Loop
The park has wifi (which we found was on a couple of hours a day), a fish-cleaning station, a water lily/duck pond complete with ducks, a clubhouse, propane, horseshoe pits,  newly remodeled laundry house, level pull-throughs, basketball court, a big concrete fire ring for campfires and a friendly staff. The restrooms and showers are spacious and clean - though you do have to use token for them. Our experimenting shows it to be .25 for 3.5 minutes. We have NEVER stayed here where Hiouchi was 100% full - but it could happen at the height of fishing (Smith River) or Summer (Right in the Redwoods).
In easy walking distance you can reach the Hiouchi Hamlet (gas station and small grocery store) and Hiouchi Cafe (historical cafe with an awesome breakfast). A bit further and you can visit the Redwood Park  Information Center and Jed Smith Park. We found a family bike ride to Jed Smith State Park to be delightful.

We stayed during the "peak season," but by paying the weekly rate it was $31 a night.  Hiouchi RV Resort offers 10% discounts for AAA, Good Sam's, AARP and Escapees (though there seems to be some extra hoops to get this discount?). We have been given a military discount of 10% in the past, though it isn't listed.  They do list a fee for extra people (kid tax) but we've never been charged this fee.
In all honesty, I wouldn't call this a "resort" over a park. I'm still not quite sure what distinguishes the two but this doesn't seem fancier than the parks we've stayed in. I think a hot tub or pool makes it a resort. ::snort::  WE LOVE THIS PARK/RESORT. Michael's mother lives across the river. The area is full of hikes, bike-rides, Redwoods, Smith River fun, AND the Pacific Ocean with all the fun it provides is only 9 miles away.
