This is a must see on your travels of the west coast. There aren't really words to describe the magnitude of these old growth timbers. The flora here is one of a kind. The twists and turns through the forest reveal one breathtaking scene after another. You will be deeply impressed by the natural beauty of this park.

This is a tricky one. I went into the Redwood National Park and was disappointed. The trees were pretty enough and there were some nice viewpoints, but I was mostly disappointed. However, the next stop I made was in the Prairie Creek Redwood state park and it was 100 percent amazing. The trees are so tall and the forest is... More

This was our favorite place to see the redwoods. We traveled the three best known drives of the redwoods and the Newton B Drury in this park was our favorite. Stop at the Big Tree Wayside and explore the paths. You won't be disappointed. A good place to take photos and feel and smell the forrests

The helpful staff at the visitor center in Crescent City told us to take the Howland Hill road through the forest. We were pressed for time and had to be back in Medford Oregon at a certain time. The road is an old carriage trail that is now a fairly rough gravel road. An adventurous motorcyclist could manage but would... More

You have to see these trees to believe how big they are, and your children will get a kick out of getting their picture taken standing inside of one! You can spend a lot of time here, or just drive through and still enjoy the experience. No cost to enter the park, so it's a cheap experience for the family.

I've always wanted to see the Redwoods. It was worth my wait. They are truly amazing. We hiked back to the Ladybird Johnson Grove... wow! It's so amazing they can live right by the ocean! Plan a stop there if you can. Also just south of there drive through the Avenue of the Giants. So awesome!

The drive along the Oregon coast towards the Redwood National Park was amazing. The view was beautiful along the coast. The Redwood National Park have many gigantic trees that are thousand of years old.

I love the redwoods. It brings a serenity that can't be found anywhere else. I like to simply sit on a picnic table and look up. Awesome.

...but camped in Elk Prairie and after a day trip to Jedidiah Smith, I had park envy! Jedediah Smith had beautiful sites with well-appointed facilities. Restrooms and showers were heavenly.
