  • This is THE place to see the redwoods and is free to drive and hike through. It is well worth the time to drive Howland Hill road, but this is a very rough, narrow road with lots of potholes, so be pr...  more »

  • Make no mistake, either you hike through the grove, or even drive through the beautiful 101 and 199, you will be mesmerized with the size of those trees and subsequently feel so tiny little. Picture d...  more »

  • The Ranger on staff was incredibly rude and non helpful. I wanted to see the campsites before paying the money to stay in one, he barred me from entering the camp saying it was "quiet time" - it was 4:45 PM on a Tuesday afternoon. When I mentioned that it was tough to get a reservation and wanted to know if they have walk up sites available (I wanted to know for future reference as I already had a place to camp for that night) he told me to "go to the website to make a reservation." That was not what I asked. So I asked again. His response was that I should "come in earlier in the day to find out". Um.. ok.. so you do allow walk ups? Again, for the third time he told me 'I'd have to stop by sooner to find out.' Apparently it is against protocol to be helpful in any way.
  • Very clean, and beautiful campsites. Yes you can hear traffic, (you can't see it at all) but it is subtle, it didn't bother me, and I couldn't hear it at all during the night. The staff is friendly and helpful, I will return some day!
  • Great nature, sightseeing place. Redwoods are giants. Lots of hiking
  • The best campground I have ever stayed in! I love this campground, they have bathrooms and showers and the sites give you enough privacy from your neighbors. The campground is very clean and the visitors have been good enough to not feed the wild life, so no aggressive birds/squirrels here. Each site has a bear box. The shower are very clean and the cost is very cheap compared to national parks like Zion. The campground is next to the river and there are plenty of trails that lead out or are not too far from the campground. Small town conveniently 15-20 mins away for additional shopping. Really a must visit if you love the Redwoods.
  • This park is the best but the visitor center people can be rude but the park is really nice.
