Recommendations in Northern California

We are hitting the road again in August, and are looking for some recommendations for RV Parks around Klamath, CA. We have found Camper Corral, Kamp Klamath and Klamath River RV Park. Anybody stay in any of these? Any other ideas? We are also wondering what Highway 299 is like from Arcata to Redding. We'll be traveling in a 32' Class A, towing a car, and a diesel truck pulling a 24' trailer. Is the road wide enough for comfortable travel and are there lots of curves? It looks like it on the map. Any idea the time it takes from Arcata to Redding?

So appreciate any feedback.

Love liven' this good life!

Not for the faint of heart, some 20 mph hair pin curves. Several mountain grades at 6 to 8 degree descents. Good luck.

Even though there is lots of curve and a few tough grades, it is also comfortably wide. We traveled it last year with two motor homes (27' and a 31'). Both motor homes are 25+ years old with substandard brakes compared to newer rigs and it was an easy and scenic drive with lots of pull outs and places to stop and enjoy the scenery.

Klamath River RV

We stayed there last year. It was one of our favorite locations. Misty/foggy in the morning. Grass sites. Beautiful view of the river. Just Great!

Semi's make the trip all the time on Hwy 299. No good alternative unless you head south and cut over on Hwy 20 from I5 at Williams and come out at Ukiah on Hwy 101. This is the route I take and I would hate to miss the redwoods between Garberville and Rio Dell on Avenue of the Giants.

299 is no problem at all, like was previous said truckers use it daily as it's the only coast to inland route for NorCal. I've done it many times, Arcata to the summit is a bit steep but no issues at all. Make sure to take in the view at the scenic turnout at the top. Downgrade to Willow Creek is a bit steep at times, just take it slow. Stop in Willow Creek for a spell, cool old town. Rest of the trip to Redding is easy and scenic. Stop at Whiskey Town Lake just before Redding and stretch as it's a nice view and generally really quiet.

We just did a trip going the opposite way. Not a bad drive at all. Trinity river runs along the highway for a good portion of the way. Only issue is that they are doing major road work on 299 between weaverville and whiskeytown lake so expect some delays.
