“Very Nice Campground at the mouth of the Russian”

Reviewed Jul 21, 2016

Overall Rating

Russian River campground is a NFS campground with excellent paved roads and paved driveways. Driveways are long and most sites have good separation. AT&T is available but very weak - varies between 1 & 2 bars usually, and very slow. I tried to upload photos but the connection was too slow.

This campground is VERY popular during the salmon runs - reservation will almost certainly be required. I was surprised to see that it wasn't full during mid week in mid July, but we're apparently a bit early for the second Silver run.

Bear awareness is very important. The salmon attract the bears and it's your responsibility to stay out of their way. Inappropriate food handling and food storage can be very problematic from a bear perspective and from a pocketbook perspective if you're observed leaving food and/or ice chests sitting out and about.

Drinking water is available around the campground, and there is a spigot with threads to top off your tanks as you enter the campground across from the dump. There are a couple very nice composting toilet complexes, positioned to be accessible to the many fishermen who pay parking fees to use the two large parking lots interspersed with the camping loops.

I'll try to get pictures posted in the next few days.
