This is such an amazing property. It is nestled in the forest, and very adjacent from hwy 101. It's cabins are cozy and perfect for a weekend getaway. We have been to this property several times. The management goes out of their way to make sure your visit is perfect. We had some issues our last visit, but it was... More

Was here in the summer two years ago and was pleased. This December 2014 visit was awful, causing me to vacate after one night. Due to recent rain the cabins were surrounded by mud without paved roads or entry ways to the cabin door. Therefore, our shoes sunk deep into mud entering or exiting cabin and the car almost got...

This is truly a special place. If you want to just relax and unwind among the lush green of the forest, the Emerald forest huts comes highly recommended. Even though there was not a lot to do other than strolling, this is the point.

This circle of rustic cabins nestled in a grove of giant redwoods is generally a nice place to stay if you like rustic like we do. We don't mind roughing it but we booked the "Suite" unit which has a full kitchen so that we could eat in one of the nights we were there. The room is large and... More

Emerald Forest offers camping, rv sites and cabins tucked in among the redwoods. When I visit, I stay in a cabin. The cabins have a rustic feel with real comfort. My favorites are # 24 & 26. Dogs are welcomed in some units.

We come to Trinidad for a long weekend every year. We stopped here last minute because of the good reviews, needless to say we were very disappointed. The cabin was very small to the point of being uncomfortable. The room was very dark and there was a double bed which had a very hard mattress. Fortunately we had another cabin... More

We just got back from a 2 week camping-motel trip of northern California. We stayed here on the advise of one of our travel mates who had a great experience before. We were traveling with our dogs so we were given a small but clean little cabin with a nice patio in the back that overlooked some campsites in the... More

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
