Nothing I like better than to wander through a cool northern forest. Here, the trees are gigantic, and it is a humbling experience, standing next to these 2,000 year old behemoths. Photos cannot do them justice. Go all the way to Stout Grove, even though the last part of the road is unpaved, and a little bumpy.

The redwoods are always incredible, and the weather was so nice that day, I could have stayed there all day.

WE took the Mill Creek trail from Howland Drive. Beautiful trail as you wend through the redwoods surrounded by redwood sorrel and ferns. There are two picturesque bridges to cross and two small bridgelettes. At the end you are at the Green River and can either cross to Stout Grove (in summer) or turn around and retrace your steps through... More

We took several dirt roads that led to some great groves...with little to no hiking involved. Not crowded and lots to see bring a extra memory stick , you will need it

Good place for photographs. Can be tricky in the fog. Enjoyed the peace and quiet with several walking tracks close to the road.

A little pricey, and my GF had the showers eat her money and she was left taking a cold shower. The campground is well located for checking out the northern reaches of the CA coast and the amazing forests. Never felt so small in my life.

Kind of disappointed that it seemed only the campground was open. We were able to walk around on the drive and down to the river but the trails across the road were closed. Big plus...the rest rooms were heated! It was cold and damp on the road but the warm rest rooms were a plus. The trees are unbelievable! Would... More

We stayed at the campground here and thought it was beautiful. Convenient hikes close by, a beautiful river flowing through, and of course the gigantic trees everywhere. The campground is near a highway, so the noise from the passing cars was not great. Overall I liked this location!

There is no "getting used" to these trees. You just stare and stare and stare and they never stop being amazing.

This place is amazing! The trees are so beautiful and there are trails EVERYWHERE! It is so easy to explore. Our family of 6 had a wonderful time hiking (easy) through this forest paradise. We had also learned that some of the scenes of "Return of the Jedi" were filmed here. So, being the huge Star Wars nerds we are,... More
