Redwood Acres Campground & Samoa Cookhouse, Eureka, California


We headed south on the 101 today into Eureka, where we plan to spend a few days. We're staying at the Redwood Acres Campground, which is actually part of the Fairgrounds in Eureka. It's not a beautiful place by any means, but it has full hook-ups and free WIFI. We would recommend staying here if you simply want a place to park your rig while in the area. Which brings us to one important thing to be sure to do in the area ~ eat at the Samoa Cookhouse! (pictured here) They serve "lumber-camp (family) style" meals - basically, they decide what they cook for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and you eat what they make ya! We happened upon pork ribs, which was accompanied by fresh-baked bread, homemade soup, salad with homemade dressing, potatoes, beans, corn, and finally for dessert - carrot cake! You get second servings on the main course, at no additional charge (which basically means that Brad wants to eat every meal here while we're in Eureka).

We walked off the meal by meandering around Old Town Eureka - nothing great to be quite honest, but the homes in the area are in the style of beautiful Victorian architecture, and definitely worth the time to enjoy.
By the way, the last of the Redwood Pictures have been posted ~ enjoy!
