Casini Ranch and Russian River are Tarantula Free zone... Only natural hazard is potential for water if river rises a little fast..

Tarantula's were unwelcome guests at Lake San Antonio near Paso Robles, where hot and dry October contributed to spirited migration and mating season right through our campground.. At least one guy didn't make it across, after he climbed a tree next to several campsites...

California tarantulas are not particularly poisonous. Only black widows get credit for being medically significant. The wandering tarantulas are pretty gentle creatures, actually. When I was a kid we used to carry them around and watch them up close as they crawled delicately across our hands and arms. They are wonderfully fuzzy.

Whether you enjoy getting close to nature or not, tarantulas in California are nothing to worry about. In dry areas, it is a good idea to check your shoes for scorpions, though.

Your friendly California Tarantula. They are almost cuddly

This one was almost as big as a kitten.

But don't get me started on Black Widows, or the Brown Recluse

What's this about the water rising fast? I'm concerned. I've already been warned that my specific site is located in somewhat of a ponding basin and that I should pack goloshes and a snorkel. And you know what they say about April showers....
Also, maybe we can talk about the potluck rather than spiders. I'm not afraid of much...just jury duty and spiders.

Cara, as you pull into Casini, you'll see this sign on your right. Pretty much everyone except may F troop, will be well below this sign.

True...although unlikely... those in F troop could wake up to a toxic water front.

I've done several jury duties, the major risk is dying of boredom, but will be glad to provide some info about how to survive it if you are "selected."

BTW, in addition to snorkel, an anchor may be useful if you don't have oar ports or a mast on the A/S.
