We don't have the words to adequately describe how beautiful this redwood reserve is. Every 10 steps provides another photo opportunity or reason to just stop and take in the natural beauty around you. There is a parking lot and a small visitors center where...More

We went for an early-afternoon walk here on the recommendation that it gave us all the redwoods you could want without the crowds of Muir Woods. We were not disappointed. From a simple walk on flat trails to more moderate hiking, you can't go wrong....More

Took a quick trip to the park, glad we did! Fun place to see the Redwoods. Great story behind the Armstrong’s. Went on a Saturday, not too crowded. Finished our trip in downtown Guerneville walking around the shops.

Free parking right outside the gate. Many levels of trails, ranging from level & paved to more strenuous. I was a solo visitor yet felt very safe. The Redwoods are absolutely majestic. This is a magical place that will inspire visitors of any age!

More than a walk in the woods. Moss. Lichen. Banana slugs. Think Star Wars and perhaps an Ewok or two. Just a place to hike with imagination. Carry water and a snack.

We had spent the night at the Russian River Autocamp and were heading towards the coast. Luckily the helpful staff told us about Armstrong Redwood State Reserve. Being from Ohio, we never tire of being in the majestic space of the redwoods. We were thrilled...More

I did not see any RV parking specifically marked but if you get there early enough, the lot is big enough. You can hike from there to all there is to see. Better yet, park in Guerneville and uber or bike to the park. Then... More

Alas, dogs are not allowed on any of the reserve's trails. I'd say the answer has to be no.
