I am definitely NOT an outdoorsy type person, but I wouldn't have missed this for anything! It's simply amazing - and an absolute MUST-DO. Doesn't matter your age. You'll want to visit.

If you travel down US 101, you drive through the edges of the park. You will come to the main visitor center where you will find information about the park, a great orientation video, and friendly rangers who will answer your questions. The visitor center...More

This is just a magnificent place to see incredible Redwoods, the tallest tree in the world. The national and state parks work together to administer this area. Be sure to take the Newton B Drury Parkway to see the greatest trees.

My understanding is that there are NO dogs allowed. They don't want dogs "polluting" with their feces. And while most of us I'm sure would pick up our dog poop, there are some who will not.

RV Road trip from Banff, AB to Redwood National Park, CA (1 Reply)
Hi all... We are planning our first RV trip with our baby and our goal is Redwood National Park. Our other goal is arriving with our sanity intact! That means stopping every 2-3 hours and only doing 2 stretches like that a day until we get there. We have lots of time, three weeks, and we'll be stopping in either Sandpoint or Whitefish for my husbands work retreat just before our vacation time starts so technically we will be starting from one of those places. I was hoping for your advice on...More

You know my thoughts on your route from your other thread ;-) What are you looking for in lodging? There are B&Bs, cabins, smaller older "mom-and-pop" type motels, "rustic" lodges . . . even yurts but they require you bring your own bedding.

Where should we overnight visiting Redwood National Park (1 Reply)
We are driving from San Francisco to Seaside Oregon. We plan on going through Redwoods National Park. We plan on spending 2 nights in the park area. Should we stay at one hotel both nights or are we better off driving further north for our second night?

KadySanClemente_CA I would recommend two separate stops. 1st night maybe Fortuna second night try to get as far north as Brookings or Gold Beach. Have Fun GP
