As soon as we walked into cabin 'm' it smelt musty and old. We had to try and air the room out. The duvets looked old and well worn. We opened a set of drawers that smelt horribly musty too. At least the bathroom facilities were clean. The only good thing was the location in the Redwoods and it was... More

Emerald Forest is in a forest and very green. We stayed in an RV site, but there are also tent sites, and little cabins to rent. The grounds were clean, the public bath/shower rooms were clean, and it had a fish/crab cleaning station. It is shady...everywhere. It is green and lush. There is some freeway noise (101 is directly behind... More

This campground atmosphere would be more suited to a family. A family reunion would be great to base here as the cabins are all facing a lovely gazebo and field with campsites nearby as well and RV sites. Unfortunately, we were traveling as a couple and hoped for a little more quiet and a bit more comfort. The bed was... More

We were looking for a standard chain motel, hopefully with an ocean view. This place consists of cabins tucked in among redwood trees. The atmosphere is gloomy 'cause of all the trees, and there's a sort of hunting camp feel. I can see why people might like it, but it was simply not what we wanted. I'll give it this... More

I was looking for something as close to Redwood Forest National Park as I could get and still be far enough south to minimize the drive from San Francisco. It worked out perfectly for that. What was unexpected was to be in such a magical place under the giant redwoods. After staying in a crowded urban hotel, the spacious cabin... More

We joined our family for their yearly camping trip at this site. Its a nice setting but there isn't much privacy and you can't help but get a bad whiff of the sewer lines. thank being said its in the middle of the redwoods and its a cute little place at first glance. With 2 kids a grandmother and a... More

My wife and I stayed in one of the cabins during a recent trip to Redwood National Park. The cabins are VERY basic and pretty pricey for what you get. You are strictly paying for location which is nice--redwoods trees all around you. WIFI didn't work. Have a sign that they charge $15 extra if you don't wash your own... More

The campground was pretty good as usual. Kind of dusty this year. You will like the cool weather if you visit. Bring your own wiFi device although they profess to have internet it usually did not work at all.

A nice little one room cabin was our base for the weekend. Surrounded by woods off 101, it was very easy to drive to any of the national or state parks. The gentleman at the desk was very helpful with local information. Only complaint was the internal noise. The heater is very loud, so we ended up turning it all... More
