Yes it is beautiful to drive Howland Hill Rd and walk thru Stout Grove. We have just been spoiled by other parks that have created many more access points. This is a huge park but has very few access points. Maybe that's by design to keep people off their big trees but we would have liked to have seen more... More

We stopped in here to have a picnic for lunch and hike the trail in the park. The park is well kept and the trail is an easy walk around. There was a swimming area where people were enjoying the water. Looks like a fun place to camp.

Take a drive down this dusty road and be greeted by towering giant redwoods all around you. I will NEVER get used to the size of these trees! I can't help but think of the movie, "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" when I'm surrounded by these gigantic freaks of nature. Get out and hike around them or stand next to... More

Imagine dinosaurs towering over top or ewoks and storm troopers whizing by. This massivness and enormity of these trees is humbling and puts life into perspective.

My wife and I made a quick jaunt down to Crescent city so we could take in some of the beautiful coastline and the Redwoods. Nothing we did was really a "must happen" and we just enjoyed taking in the wonderful sights. I had jotted down the Jedediah Smith Redwoods park in my notes, so we mean headed that way.... More

This stop on our road trip was at the request of our 12-yr old. It added an extra day and a half of driving and another hotel night, but it was most definitely worth it. Each time we would stop to take a pic of the biggest tree we'd ever seen, we would round a corner and do it all... More

You think, ya right, of course they are big....get out there and see them you really will be amazed. There is a very nice campground hidden among the giants. Staff at visitors' center is very helpful. They were able to advise as to accessibility for those of us with challenges.

Any point in the Redwoods is major awe inspiring, this park is no exception. Camped here with my new bride 30years ago and have many good vibes. Being here is like being in a cathedral.

Really big trees. Lots of 'em. Everywhere! Jed Smith SP is a great place to relax and walk beneath the towering trees. There is a state campground here as well as a privately owned RV park in the same area. I never cease to enjoy this park every time I am in the area.
