Spent the day exploring the beach and forest in this park on New Year's Eve 2019! Chose this park aside from the others because of the different aspects: beach, trees, fern canyon, elk prairie. Not too busy, never had trouble finding parking. The Ranger in...More
I have visited here several times in my life, primarily to see Fern Canyon. This time we took some trails. Whatever you do, do not miss the Prairie Creek Trail. It was the easiest hiking on our month camping trip and and the trail is...More
We were back in the redwoods, enjoying how big and high they are. I love these Redwoods.
We were enjoying our trek in the Revelation Trail. At times, we could enter into a Redwood, as there was a wide opening for us.
I was amazed...More
I'm so grateful to the people who formed the Save the Redwoods League for providing the leadership to protect some of these awe-inspiring trees. Despite mobility issues that limited us to the shorter and more populated walks we had quiet moments to ourselves in these...More
Beware. We parked in an approved spot on the side of the road at a trailhead with 2 other cars also parked. All our valuables were either in the trunk or on our person, and yet we returned to our car to find the window...More
My wife and I had a fabulous time in this park. There are numerous trails and we did a number of them. It was incredibly quiet, which allows one to seriously ponder the wonder and majesty of the redwoods. It was also not very crowded...More
Prairie Creek offers some wonderful hiking options, particularly if you wish to walk among some beautiful Redwoods. Make certain you stop at the visitors center to get advice on the options. They’ll update you on park activities and can offer sound advice on trails and...More
We rented an extra car for a day in Crescent City to do the James Irvine Trail as a one-way hike. The trail was in good shape, but we thought the trees along the B.S. Tree trail were more impressive. There was a very interesting...More
I stayed over here and loved it. I spent one night and it cost about $35 for the night. The scenery is great and it was absolutely stunning. The campground was quiet during the night. The campground was nestled into the redwood forests. You should...More

I think you have gotten good advice. There are no limitations that I am aware of for the trails in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. At some times for maintenance and controlled burns, various trails will be closed. Check with a ranger at the Prairie Creek Visitor Center. There is one trail that is always restricted and that is the Tall Trees Access Road to the Tall Trees Trail. Each day they limit the number of vehicles entering that area, and it is controlled by the Rangers. A stop at the park entrance and the Kuchel Visitor Center can provide details and access info.

I worked at the Park as a volunteer and cleaned the cabins, so I can definitely tell you about them. First, realize that they are cabins with heat, electricity, and platforms to put your bedding. But nothing more. You need to walk to the restrooms/showers (2 minutes) which are not in your cabin. No kitchen. You need to bring a mattress and/or bedding as well as fold-up chairs, if you want a place to sit. The advantage is that you are right in the park and may look out in the morning to see the elk grazing in the meadow. Ask more if I haven't answered what you want to know.
On May 21, I will be driving from Junction City to Redwoods National Park to spend a day. I "assumed" that Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park would be the destination point where I should begin my experience. I plan to go south to find a hotel to spend the night. Please give me advice to maximize my experience.

Hi UGAly1 Maybe we need a little more information to help. Is this a one day trip? Where are you heading the next day. Do you enjoy hikes? Mobility problems? Do you like beaches? Have Fun GP

Heading from Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park to Reno, Nevada. I have one night to stay somewhere and wondering if anyone can suggest a place so delightful that it is not to be missed enroute.

You've posted this on the Fort Bragg forum. When is your trip? There are fires in NorCal right now.

Is this park open, or has it been closed by the State to save money ??......

As far as I know, the campgrounds are still open. You can try calling 707-465-7347 and hopefully get up-to-date information :-)
