  • What a site to see! We found a few Banana Slugs and boy were the sites amazing! The best part was how quiet it was. The 3-4 hours we were on the trails, only saw a handful of people. Great experience!  more »

  • Beautiful setting among the redwoods. Lots of banana slugs on the trail, so step carefully. 5.7 mile hike in on the Jackson Flats Trail, and 4.9 miles out on Indian Trail to Doe Ridge Trail. No water ...  more »

  • Very relaxing park with few tourists. We did the loop trail that goes all the way to the end of the park then come back. It takes about 4 hours. You will see different trees, landscapes, animals and insects. We overall loved our time there.
  • The Park is very beautiful and a good hiking place. But I think more maintenance and cleanliness is required. The rest rooms near the parking lot were really bad and dirty. Would request the rangers to please updating and cleaning them regularly. I understand those are pit toilets but still in very very bad shape.
  • Beautiful park and campground. It's a great hidden park and very quiet.close enough to the beach and services that if you wish to go to a restaurant it's within half hour drive
  • What a joke, no camping in winter when it's 75° and sunny. Another California state park being illegally ran to there own liking, federal funding should be cut since they don't follow the rules.
  • Right off HWY 1, lots of trails for day hiking, and not very crowded - at least when we were there.
