I have lived in the west for 54 years and just visit J.Smith State Park. This stand of redwood trees is amazing, cared for through the parks system. Rangers stand in the park, ready to answer questions but are not intrusive if visitors simply choose to absorb the beauty, aromas and atmosphere of these ancient trees. Visitors from all over...

We spent a couple of hours in the Stout Grove, within this park in November. It's a quiet, peaceful place where you can marvel at these amazing old Coast Redwood trees. The 1/2 mile loop trail is well worth the time and you'll see young trees as well. Sword ferns cover the ground in many areas and you'll feel revived... More

Gorgeous and historis park and campgrounds, you need reservations usually for overnight camping. Sits along the Smith River is great for fishing, swimming in good weather, boating, etc. It is a great place for a get together has lots of picnic tables, a sandy beach, and beautuful trails. Also has bathrooms. We go there many times every summer.

If you love history and big trees, don't miss this one. Yes, the west coast has lots of big trees, and we want everyone to see what we love.

By far the most beautiful place I've been in the United States. Few places could make you feel smaller as a person.. and the drive along the 101 is breathtaking. Do it!

Great place to RV among the redwoods, (a tent might be a little chilly this time of year) about seven miles from town if you need anything.

If I were to do this again, I would go in mid-October when one of the larger visitor centers is still open, but the glorious feeling of having the park mostly to yourself can't be beat. I went there as a teen and so wanted to go back and it was better than remembered. NO motorhomes/trailers and for good reason.... More

These beautiful parks, spectacular scenery and huge trees are a must see for anyone. The walks in the park, amongst these huge behemoths in almost complete serenity, gives one a great time for introspection and awakening.
