I've camped in many, many of the national parks and forests in the US, and this is by far the most beautiful, most well-kept campground I've ever visited. We stayed one night among the towering redwoods, just along a pristine river. Truly beautiful.The bathroom facilities are nicer than some hotels I've been in - single-occupant bathrooms, and private, HOT, pay... More

$35 for a tent campsite but it's worth it. Campsites are very large and private compared to other campgrounds. Bathrooms and showers are clean. Very pretty scenery all around you. Right next to Stout Grove where there are hundreds of the best redwoods I have ever seen!

We read great reviews for this campground and were so glad we stayed here. Unfortunately, we came for Memorial Day weekend and were only able to reserve one night here due to our last minute plans. Still, we were able to snag one of the prime spots. We stayed at site 56 but honestly, any of the sites backed up... More

Maybe one of the most spectacular places on the planet. The river is the only undammed river in all of California and is clear and refreshing to swim in. The trees are massive and I love the rain forest feel. Campground is always full so make reservations, but make reservations because you don't want to miss this place.

My pet peeve with JS campground is two-fold: first, $35/night for a tent seems pretty steep to me. Secondly, there was nothing in any of the literature I read beforehand to let me know the showers are coin-operated! This is 2014, and I'm sure I'm not alone in my propensity for leaving pocket change at home. I enjoyed the scenery,... More

As soon as we arrived a very cheerful lady checked us in and told us we had the best site on the campground - she was right. Site 52 was in a very wooded area but with a clearing to sit and view down to the river and trail a few steps away. The showers and toilets were some of... More

My family and I truly enjoyed this State Park. The setting was beautiful, cute little gift shop, and the things to see and do were plentiful. My boys had fun participating in the Redwoods Adventure Quest and earning their free badge! The sites were wooded and private(try to snag one by the river if you can.) We really enjoyed a... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and were sad to say goodbye to this campground. The sites are big, the restrooms are clean (except you need to bring your own soap to wash your hands), and the scenery is unmatched. There is a ton of hiking and river access around this campground. You do have to pay... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here one night on our roadtrip from Cali to Michgan. We ended up here on a whim and paid $35 for a site. The sites were VERY spacious although they did range in size. We got a HUGE site for our little prius and little 2 person tent but the campground was not even close... More
