Shortstop: Salmon Harbor Resort, Smith River, CA

The draw here is that the Smith River pours into the Pacific right at the campground. Apparently, this is a great place for fishing – if “Resort” in the name doesn’t apply, “Salmon” does! We enjoyed the water very much, watching harbor seals, sea lions, and birds in abundance; all viewed just a few steps from our campsite.

The campground offers WiFi for a price. We opted to use our Verizon service which has an acceptable 3G connect. Cable TV is provided and there’s a laundry and some worn bathrooms. The staff is friendly and accommodating.

I’d say that the campground is a bit below average, but the location is very good.
