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

This is probably the best campground I've ever camped at. Each campsite is very spacious and can probably accommodate three to four 2-4 person tents if you wanted to, and it's also surrounded by redwoods. The one downside to the campsite is that there is not much coverage between the campsites, but it's so spacious, that it doesn't really matter... More

Enjoyed a wonderful night camping under these majestic trees. Our campsite was very close to the Smith River, which is a attraction by itself. Beautiful river. The facilities in the campground were excellent as well. Appears to be recently remodeled! It was excellent!

This campground is probably my favorite campground of all the campgrounds I've camped in. Each site is surrounded by beautiful, towering redwood trees. The sound when the wind blows through them is unlike any other. So, so peaceful. What is nice about this campground is that it is quiet and relaxing. It's not necessarily right next to all the main... More
