We had a a pretty long 4-5 hour drive from arcata to clear lake….but I gotta say that it was SO worth it. We ended up taking a detour to see a Redwood Forest for about 15 miles…

Not knowing what to expect because Scott booked the RV park, it was beyond amazing! After Brookings where we parked 10 seconds from the ocean I didn’t expect anything to wow me for a while…

But we parked ON the lake. It was an epic spot at Aurora RV Park and Marina.

We parked facing the water and had a great view for the ONE night we stayed. 

We had family obligations or we would have stayed longer. It really was gorgeous.

A BIG bonus was the free kayak and canoe available for guests…about 50 feet from our spot…

Before sunset we were all geared up with lifejackets for a canoe ride! Anikka took her fishing pole and cast during the ride.

The weather was nice…a bit chilly but nothing out of the ordinary for December in Cali.

Scott did most of the paddling lol

There’s the RV!!

A beautiful sunset to end a beautiful day.
