  • This truly was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been.. I didn't have a ton of time to visit as I was doing something at Pelican Bay prison but we didn't need that much time. In just an hour ...  more »
  • This was absolutely awesome. The trails are very well kept and you could spend all day just wandering through the giant Redwoods. My kids loved it, some of the trees had fallen over and were lying on ...  more »
  • A walk through a forest is one of the best things you can do for yourself, a walk through this forest sets your heart at ease. What a wonderful sight to wander through the underbrush and have the tree...  more »

  • Beautiful area. I highly suggest going to the stout grove both the hike and the drive through the forest.
  • Absolutely the best campground!! Camping in the middle of the redwood Forrest. Very clean, reasonable rates. Highly recommend.
  • Rented a cabin here, as 75 now and didn't have camping gear. Was grossed out. The redwoods are sacred, and staying within their energy is wonderful. I thought, "OK, a cabin of redwood in the redwoods. Fine. BUT the cabin was a prefab, trucked in from some other state, with PINE on inside, cement siding (?) outside. No chairs, no table, no mattresses, no bathroom or kitchen. Beds just a slab of plywood. NO soul. Come on folks, other states at least give you vinyl mattresses.
  • We only stopped for a second to resituiate but I got an adorable pictures.
  • Absolutely amazing place right between the Redwoods with plenty of hiking trails and next to the Smith river. Sites for tents as well as trailers. Each site has a fire pit, picnic table and food locker (against bears). I payed $37 for a night. They sell firewood here. Showers are coin operated ($0.50 for the first minute and $0.25 for every next minute). Barely to no phone reception except next to the visitor center. No WiFi. Restrooms and showers are a bit of a walk. Friendly staff. Bring mosquito coils and repellent; they bite during the day as well. Will definitely come back here.
