All Aboard the Railroad Motel

Dunsmuir, Calif. — Train buffs and kids would love this place. I am neither, but I love it, too. Tucked into a cozy caboose at night, I’m lulled to sleep by a babbling brook. The Railroad Park Resort and RV Campground is right off of I-5, but away from highway noise. The gift shop sells a plethora of train trinkets, and around the grounds are various train relics—old cars and equipment. The best part is the room itself: a very comfortable and surprisingly spacious train car, complete with hot shower. Cabooses and more are permanently anchored on tracks in a circle around the outdoor pool. All aboard for a good night’s sleep in an unusual setting. — Laurie Borman
