Pretty place, full of big Redwoods and trails running through them. A nice place to camp out, or have a family picnic.

We got married in the picnic area, and it was dreamy. We said our vows under a huge old oak tree, beside ancient redwoods. The park rangers and state parks office were kind and helpful, and did everything they could to make the weekend wonderful...More

This is one of the few places you can walk through old growth redwoods. Even with the added dust due to our drought, this is a stunning place. You can easily understand why Mr. Hendy wanted to preserve this eco system. The Big Hendy Grove...More

It really doesn't look like you could get a cot in there. I think you'd be OK with having the cot outside, and maybe you could have a small tent outside, too. There is usually a limit of 8 people per site. Check with the... More

It is not a problem. Go to the park website for complete information. We did not camp this last visit, but we have camped here in the past. It is magical camping under the redwoods.
