It took us about three hours to get from Grant’s Pass to Crescent City. We checked into our cabin and baby E and I promptly took a nap. While Matt took the opportunity to work on his residency application.
We LOVED our stay at the KOA in Crescent City. It was incredibly close to lots of Redwood National Forest trailheads, so it was a great home base of sorts while we explored the redwoods. Our cabin was actually right next to a huge redwood stump that was almost as big as the cabin itself! This KOA kinda reminded me of summer camp. In a good way.The cabin was perfect. It was very cozy and just the right size for our family of three. The front porch swing was our favorite feature. Baby E loved it! We didn’t take advantage of the awesome fire pit in front of the cabin but we totally will next time we stop here. Because, let’s be honest, we’ll have to come back. It was just too lovely.
The other super charming thing about this location was the proximity to the beach. Crescent City has some stunning ocean views. Our first night there we ate at The Chart Room and Marina and had the most incredible fish and chips as well as an awesome walk along the marina. It was hilarious watching baby E watch seagulls. Then we went to a nearby lighthouse and saw the sunset. It was truly breathtaking.
So there’s some photos of our trip through the Redwoods and more cabin photos on deck for this week. SO many photos…Matt and I love looking back through the photos we’ve shared here. So there you go. They must be posted.
