Boris would stay here again

“Great campground, terrible host”

Reviewed Aug 30, 2016

Overall Rating

We have stayed at the Ruby Van Deventer campground before and we will again. The campground itself is great. It's located along the Smith River on Hwy 197 about half way between Crescent City and Brookings. You can choose to be nestled in the thick canopied Redwood camp sites or right on the edge facing the river which allows much more lighting. The campground is fantastic even thought the entrance is a bit sketchy sitting on a corner. The host, however, seemed to be nonexistent. Not once did I see the host travel through the campground and check on the sites / campers to see how they were doing or clean up. I never saw the trash bins emptied. The bathrooms were truly atrocious, coated in bugs (yes I know it's a campground but this was truly bad for a place with a host), dirty, and the toilets didn't even have seats thus making you either sit on the nasty porcelain or try to hover to do your business.

I will undoubtedly stay here again at some time because hosts come and go. It's $15 is a much more acceptable alternative to the $28-35 of Jedediah Park right up the road.
