What an amazing experience this was!!! It is a huge park with many, many activities. My husband and I made the 2.5 mile hike into the Boy Scout Tree and it was worth every step. What amazing trees and amazing flora. The sorrel that covered the ground was beautiful. There are no words for the big trees...they just leave a... More

As anybody can tell the redwoods are a natural treasure but until you can walk among them you can not appreciate their size majesty.

We spent one morning in this beautiful state park and could have spent more. Less crowded than the national and other state parks we visited in the redwood area. Very quiet and serene.

We had such a beautiful drive through this incredible park. Stopped for info and the rangers gave us great maps and information. Drove to Stout Loop and really enjoyed the walk amongst the beautiful trees. Wish we could have stayed longer to just sit and listen to the quiet and soak in God's marvellous creation.

We are so lucky to have State Parks that are protecting the forest and land for us to see and experience.

It is beautiful and there is a good picnic spot for day use for the critters. We think it's worth the $8 day use fee. The picnic spot is next to a watering hole for swimming.

The trees are amazing and pictures do not do them justice. The parking lot was full, which was deceiving because the trails were not populated and it was very peaceful. I am so glad that we had the foresight to protect such natural wonders. I only wish there was more literature provided by the park like many of the national... More

The trees were awesome! Had some great trails to walk along with the kiddos. If you have time stop to take a look at what mother nature provided.

We loved hiking through the redwoods - it's not a very crowded park and the trees are amazing. We went on the Boy Scout Tree Trail, which was fine for us but we noticed several people who were not used to hiking did find it a bit much for them. There are ferns and flowers throughout the park and the... More

There is an unpaved route through this park that is a must. Totally different experience than the National Park South of Crescent City. It truely is a drive through the Giants.
