Brrrr! It was very cold when we woke up and since the heater wouldn't ignite, we decided to pack up and leave once we'd had our coffee. We were on the road before 9:00 and got to Redding an hour later. We had planned to get gas at Costco, but this was the first location we'd encountered that didn't sell gas. We eventually found a gas station, got groceries and ate our breakfast in the RV before heading up I-5 to Dunsmuir. We had lunch at Yaks where the burgers were decent, but the sticky buns were outstanding! They gave us samples while we waited for our food, so of course we got a couple to take with us for later.
We found our campground without any problems and were very pleased with the surroundings. There were plenty of trees and the view of Castle Crags was stunning. The park has restored railroad cars to rent overnight, as well as two dozen RV sites and two dozen tent sites. Other than a little road noise at night, it was very peaceful.

Railroad RV Park offers full hookups with level pull-through and back-in sites, each equipped with a picnic table and fire ring. We had access to free WiFi, as well as decent cell coverage. The restrooms (with free showers) are a bit on the rustic side, but they were clean, as was the laundry room. The resort has a dining room, bar, gift shop, pool and hot tub. We enjoyed our first two days so well, we decided to extend our stay two more nights.
