Overall Rating

Nestled in a deep mountain valley among the towering redwoods. This campground is both secluded and close to civilization. I stayed here instead of at a hotel for a recent business trip to Palo Alto. It was about a 40 minute drive to the office each day down a very windy road, but totally worth it. This was in April and it actually rained a bit each day. Keep in mind that this is on the ocean side of the Santa Cruz mountains and it is therefore it gets a lot more rain and fog than Silicon Valley. The road into the park is extremely narrow and down to a single lane in a couple of spots. Go slow and watch for oncoming traffic. Some of the sites are tough to get back to. If you have a trailer or larger vehicle be sure to get a site closer to the entrance. The further back you go, the harder it is to navigate. Very enjoyable and I will be doing this again.
