“gorgeous, spacious, quiet in february”

Reviewed Feb 11, 2018

Overall Rating

We spent two nights, dry camped in an open site along elk prairie. and yes, there was a herd of elk right there, night and day. It was a little intimidating to have them about 12 feet from the trailer, grazing away. Definitely keep the dogs leashed at all times.

weather was clear and high of 60 in early february. what I really liked were the numerous easy hikes thru the redwoods. the visitor center is top notch, with a great book store. we walked the Cal Barrel road with our three little dogs and the dog stroller. The road was closed to vehicles for the winter I guess. It was easily accessible on foot or with a stroller you could take off road. Power scooters should do well there. Dogs are not allowed on trails. The splendor of the Redwoods is not to be missed.

Potable water, trash, coin showers and flush toilets. This park is a combo of California State Park and federal National Park, they honored the national parks access pass, so our nightly rate was 50% off.

“Beautiful location in the Redwoods”

Reviewed May 31, 2015

Overall Rating

This is a perfect central location to explore the redwoods. The sites are sized well with plenty of space between you and your neighbors for most sites. It's a bit tight and the small roads look intimidating at first, but it was no problem in a 25' trailer. In typical Cali fashion it is expensive, especially for no hookups and no dump. But they have hot showers that cost a buck. This is very much in the forest, so you only get sunlight for a couple hours a day if you're lucky, so between that, the breeze, and humidty it was was very cold most of the time, weird bone chilling cold even though it's 55 degrees. It's very quiet here even though it's busy, a very peaceful bunch staying here. There is zero cell on Verizon or ATT, in fact you have to drive 15 minutes or so to get any service.
