What a great place. Enjoy a nice walk along trails that literally take you back in time. Dress in layers regardless of the time of year. I'm a Northern California native and still get surprised sometimes when the temps plummet. Park outside the gate or drive in for a reasonable $8 donation to the state park system. Friendly rangers and... More

When you visit this slice of heaven, take a jacket. Even in the summer it is in deep shade with enough humidity to cause one to chill. The paths are plenteous and well maintained and each is well marked. Get there early as the parking is limited. One one of the easier trails, one can see a 1200 and a... More

This is a great place for a wine country picnic. Bring or buy enough food to sober up, but bring a bottle of wine, and bliss out!

The Park was beautiful. We were able to take a designated trail to see so many trees that were just breathtaking. The Park offered something for everyone from camping and day trips to an afternoon hike.

This Place was so peaceful and tranquil and relaxing. I was astounded by the beauty of this park. The trees were breathtaking. The camp ground was sweet and a nice addition to this park. I will be back with my partner asap, as time allow. Next time I will bring the family to share this awesome site. The WOODS

Looking for a relaxing hike between winery stops? Armstrong Redwood State reserve is perfect. There are several well signed walking trails. It took us about 1.5 hours to stroll the whole park. The redwood trees are amazing and the information signs along the path helped understand the history of the trees and the park. There is a parking area just... More

Lots of short strolls or longer hikes through the beautiful Redwoods. Be a legitimate tree hugger to VERY huge trees!

My wife says that touring this grove of redwood trees is like visiting a cathedral and I agree. Whether or not you have visited redwood groves before, this park is a must see.
