Redwoods need no review. They are always majestic and refreshing. Park was clean and even after the huge storms we have had this summer, paths and roadways are clear from debris and accessable.

Driving in on a very narrow dirt road with our necks craning out of the sun roof and our jaws dropping, we could not fathom how majestic and inspiring the redwoods were... More

I booked the camping spot online and was during off season so we were allowed to just drive in and park at our spot. It was a bit frightening because they had caution signs of black bears were known to be in the area but we didn't hear anything. It was cool, and I wish we didn't have to leave... More
