So lovely

Trees beyond the norm. Walk the Boy Scout Tree Trail - the quiet and majesty are deeply engaging. The Stout Grove is also really gorgeous. So nice to be here without crowds.

Loved the peace of the forest and being amoung the old trees. The sun filtering down through their branches was awe inspiring! Would like to see park road one way though. A little unnerving coming around the huge tree trunk and meeting another car with no where to go! Would like if any one traveling through the park seeing any... More

State park with day fee and yes it is very nice but many locals know that you can park on the highway and walk the trail in without paying the fee. Lots of redwoods, bathrooms and easy paths. This is a campground as well and probably one of the best in the area. Close to a good convenience store and... More

Camp or hike in the heart of the giant Redwoods. Swim or kayak in the emerald green Smith River. Plenty of places to ride bikes and walk. A walking bridge is provided to hike across the river to the famous Redwood Stout Grove. A great family experience!

This was a great visit. My wife had never seen the redwoods and was blown away by the experience. It feels very primeval. Spend at least a couple of hours, walk the trails and take lots of pictures. There is a lot of cool wildlife to see as well. Look for banana slugs.

We easily found a great camping spot for the night. Not over crowded at all. The bathrooms were very nice and the camp spots were clean and inviting. The campground is close to Crescent City, so we splurged on a restaurant dinner.

This is one of the most amazing forests I've ever been too. There is a sacred feeling felt when walking amongst these old trees. Summer would probably be the best time to visit as there was lots rain and mud during our visit. The rainiest day we experienced was when we did the Boy Scout Trail but it was an... More

Young or old enjoy the beauty and discovery offered in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park. This area is one of our favorite spots to explore in. The river is beautiful and inviting, while the park area inspires ideas to return with a picnic lunch, because there is much to do and see within God's Creation that feeds the soul.

Do the hike around Stout Grove . Its only 1/2 mile or so and it will blow you away as long as you take the time to appreciate it .
