  • 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.
  • Amazing trees! The campground is situated right among the redwoods and is designed to take advantage of the trees and river. We had a campsite right on the river. It was peaceful and scenic. Although there is no electricity, there are pay showers. Have quarters on you as there are NO change machines on site.
  • I have seen most of the giant redwoods stands in California but this one is the best by far. These are coastal redwoods, only grow within a few miles of the ocean. There are many groves of old growth trees in this National State park that have been conserved from logging. The areas to the north of the highway are truly pristine and almost primoidal. Certainly worth the drive of a mile or two to see them. Be prepared for potholes and in most cases, no RVs are allowed in on those roads. The campground is very nice but not really accessible for large RVs. A few larger sites are there but the roads through the campground are narrow and trees are very close to the edges making some turns quite sharp.
  • Camped in site 97 with 24' trailer. Website says 27' max for trailer, but was told on check in that it is 25'. Spot is too small to park tow vehicle beside the trailer or crossways in the site, however there is a spacious parking spot for the tow vehicle next to the campsite along the road. 24' is pretty much max size for this site as the road is very close; other sites were larger and more secluded than site 97. Nice campground for bike rides/walks to see redwoods; river access available. Small visitor center/souvenir store in the campground.
  • I stayed in site number 44 and it was super spacious and private with walls of trees. Nice bathroom and pay showers. Beautiful overall. Rained on me the whole time and I still got some mosquito bites so I wonder if it's worse on dry days. Walk to the river is super fun for for kids!
