We spent two days enjoying and photographing these amazing mammoth trees. We especially liked the area around the "Big Tree" on the Newton B Drury Parkway. The weather was perfect for us and in this particular area, we did not have any bug problems at all. However, when we went to the Lady Bird Johnson area, we were inundated with... More

We recently did some backcountry camping at Nickel Creek camp in the Redwood National Park. We will share our experience here. - The plus is that the camp site is only ½ mile hike from the parking lot at the dead end of Enderts Beach Road just south of Crescent City. - The minus is that the camp site is...

I thought we would see big trees. What I saw took my breath away. The park was clean and well kept. it was bigger than my family or I anticipated. The trees were by far bigger than any I had ever expected or even dreamed of. Besides large trees, there were many with various types of "character". The twisted, thick,... More

Amazing centuries old trees. If you like to hike you'll love this park and it's stunning beauty. Even if you only have time to drive through you are in for a treat.

This is a must see. Please go and adventure through the worlds oldest trees. They are huge and beautiful. Trees! So simple, yet when you realize the size and age of them, you have a whole new perspective. Enjoy!

This review may be biased since we were on a Southern CA to Seattle road trip and had just a few days before been in Kings Canyon - Sequoia National Park where the trees were awe inspiring. Also due to scheduling we did not have time for a lot of day hiking. However, the various drives throughout he redwoods was... More

This park has a lot to offer whether you are looking for the massive trees in the amazing forests, time on a beach, or to see all the amazing wildlife. This is beautiful scenery on several nice drives through the area.

A must see for all, you don't have to be a hiker to enjoy the beauty and silence. Take the little cut offs from the highway. Avenue of the Giants is a must. Stop at Babe and Paul before that. The visitor center in Crescent City is great. They will tell you how to see the best of the best... More

The Redwood forest feels like a fairy take forest...massive trees, funny banana slugs, and a long creek.. The staff at the visitor center was incredibly helpful and patient; I heard them provided the same detailed info for each person in line. We spent a few hours there and it was not nearly long enough. There are many spots to park... More
