We drove out of our way several hundred miles to spend a day in the forest. It truly was spectacular and worth every minute. We had our little kids with us and could only visit in short shifts, but we both remarked that we would have really enjoyed spending a couple of days there, just the two of us, to... More

Take the Rockefeller Forest exit, then take 2 lefts to head west under hwy 101 on Mattole-Honeydew Rd. After about a mile or two driving through spectacular old growth redwoods.........look carefully on your left, for a paved road down to Rockefeller loop parking. The loop is the gateway to some of the most Pristine Redwood Hiking in the Redwood National... More

My husband reserved our site before we got there and it was adorable! We had a little gravel path to our site. So secluded and cute. From camp, we hiked Damnation Creek trail. It was 2.1 miles but petty steep down. It took us though the beautiful trees and led to the Pacific. It was so gorgeous! At camp we... More

I was really expecting greatness from all the reviews and pictures I had seen while doing research. However, after getting to the "park" I was sorely bummed. The park is not a "normal" park where special locations have access from the road. I wish the brochure and website would have stated that you have to hike, and I mean HIKE,... More

Words can not describe the enormity or the beauty of these amazing trees. You must see them to comprehend their size. There are drives through the groves our you van park and take various hikes.

We could not wait to see the Redwood National Park on our recent vacation. WOW. The roads were not crowded, peaceful, beautiful, stop and take pictures. Who can believe the Redwoods are that tall and large. Magnificent. Loved it.

The redwoods are something everyone should experience at least once in his/her lifetime. They are magestic and awe-inspiring and really put your life in perspective (how tiny humans are). Elk are abundant throughout the national park. The scenic highway is worth all of its twists and turns. Remember to drive slowly and take something medicinal if you get motion sickness.... More

A truly astounding site. Worth camping here or taking an extended hike through the trees. Some access can be limited during the winter months due to the removal of the bridges.

We went to the southernmost end of the park and started at the Kuchel Welcome Center. There was a picnic area right before the scenic highway and we stopped there and had our lunch and saw elk grazing in the field right next to where we ate. Then we took the scenic highway and were able to stop whenever we... More

One of the most awe inspiring places in America. The giant trees are spectacular. So beautiful! Take time to stop at the various locations. We took some short hikes and really enjoyed ourselves.
