Hi-Lo Motel & RV Park
“Staying at the Hi-Lo made for an excellent central location for us to be able to explore a lot of the surrounding area. Plus, the Hi-Lo’s diner food made for a great breakfast spot and grabbing a slice of pie before turning in for the night which was awesome!” – Kyle Sheppard, kylelovestori.com

Full-time RV’ers and photographers Kyle and Tori of kylelovestori.com who have traversed Siskiyou a couple of times, also offered some additional pro-tips while visiting Siskiyou in an RV:
“I would recommend having a towed vehicle because many of the cool road trips and sights will be more difficult to bring a longer vehicle to. We also found the best gas prices at the Pilot in Weed (bonus, you can get an additional discount if you’re a GoodSam member) and at the Speedway in Yreka. Filling up an RV is an expensive task, so timing your fill-ups with cheaper gas can help a lot in the long run.”
We look forward to seeing you in Siskiyou! We know you’ll love it! For additional places to stay and play in Siskiyou, visit here.
