Elk Country RV Resort & Campground….and a few other things

Wow, it’s been a minute since I’ve posted anything and so much has been going on!

Well, I guess I should start off with: I got a new job and moved to Humboldt County!

In the process of getting this new job and moving I had to get an apartment (duh).  Let me tell you something about the apartment process in Humboldt County…It sucks!  Most of us are from towns where we can go into an apartment complex and come out with an apartment pretty much the same day. Well, that is NOT the case up here. Things move at their own pace up here.  Which brings me to the title of this blog.

Elk Country RV Resort has been my saving grace.  When I found out my apartment would not be ready until weeks after I started my job, I needed to find a place to stay.  I stopped in at Elk Country and talked with the staff and checked the place out and it seemed to fit all my needs so I paid for a week and figured I’d go from there.  Well, here I am, going on almost a month later and I’m still camped out.  I did finally get my move in date for my apartment, which is still a week away, but I can’t complain.

I mean, look at this place!  Who could complain?!?

There are so many things to take pictures of that I get to have a little fun with the features on my camera. I LOVE the black and white and red pictures.  The middle one is my favorite!

Besides it being absolutely gorgeous at Elk Country RV, they have a wonderful staff, a great facility, and are close to the beach and the Redwoods. Like, seriously close.  The road across the street goes straight to the beach and is only half a mile and Redwood National and State Parks is only 10 minute up the road.

Speaking of that 10 minutes, that is all the time it takes me to get work!  When I get my apartment my drive will end up being 30 minutes.  Hmmmm, Maybe they won’t notice if I just build a little fort and stay in the campground.

Anyway, I just wanted to write a short little post about my wonderful experience staying with Elk Country.  I think I’m going to be a little sad to move on.  They have made my first month in Humboldt County a memorable one and I think it was a great way to start out my new adventure up here.

Oh, and just what am I doing up here? I’m working for the National Park Service at Redwood National and State Parks and I am loving it!

I’ll post more about all that when I get settled, for now just know that Elk Country RV Park & Campground rocks!
