Nice experience camping among the Redwoods. Very quiet when we were here. Bear locker, fire pit and table. Friendly rangers. The walking tracks werent very well sign posted (not sure if thats normal) and a few areas fenced off for repairs/upgrades. Id say a little run down but that didn't effect our stay. Hot water was a plus. Only negative was that their phone reservations office is only open weekdays and their online booking system is a joke. We just turned up which worked fine but would have been a pain of they were full. Not very user friendly to people travelling as they go!!

“Lovely spot in a lush redwood grove”

Given how the traffic works (or doesn’t work), my husband decided to drive down the peninsula the night before and camp close to his photo location the next morning. The county memorial park turned out to be a lovely spot in a lush grove of redwood trees. Close to dusk, the fog started to roll in off the ocean, giving a quiet, peaceful feeling. The park encompasses 675 acres with 156 camp sites. There were only 3 campers in the park on a Tuesday night, May 1. The fee was $25 and showers were available. No dogs are allowed. It was a treat finding such a lovely place to camp in the off season.
