It had long been on my bucket list - walking among the Redwoods. A spontaneous weekend jaunt landed me in the middle of this treasure. I was in awe the entire time I walked among these giants. Beautiful, inspiring, spiritual...a cathedral. Tucked away, this has to be the most beautiful cared-for Redwood forest there is. Take your time. Feel the... More

This is a nice campground on the banks of the Smith River. The campsites are tucked in among the spectacular Coastal Redwood trees (the tallest trees on earth). In the winter some areas of the campground are closed off. The restrooms could use a little work. You feel like you are back in the Jurassic Age when you camp here... More

This was my second time visiting the park. The first time was two years ago, when I went with a friend. This time I took my 18 year old daughter to see these beautiful trees. She loved it... The majesty of these old trees. The stillness of the park. It was amazing, as was the stay at The Lost Whale... More

We loved visiting this park. We had quite the caravan--a car, a full-size van, and a truck and camper! Though it was a tight squeeze at times, and we held our breath more than once, we took the truck and camper through the whole park! It was truly once in a lifetime. It was our first time to see the... More

We thoroughly enjoy nature. We seek it out and experience it to the fullest extent possible. Sometimes people and communities detract from that experience by commercializing nature and making it all about money. Not so at this State Park or nearby Crescent City. It's accessible without much fanfare and there for you to enjoy at your own pace. We spent... More

This area combines a breathtaking drive with many lovely hiking trails. The road is narrow but there are pull offs which are also great for a quick stop as the view around every turn is picture perfect, and there is always another hollowed tree or stump or something to be explored. You can plan a short hike (stout's grove) or... More

Beautiful drive through the park, and I'm not sure we were able to fully appreciate the size of the Redwoods until seeing a car in comparison! One of the best parks to be in the midst of the redwoods..

I've stopped by Jedediah Smith park many times through the years, most recently en route to Southern California. The tall trees, the wonderful smell of the forest, this is an important natural "heritage" that I hope remains as is for centuries.

Amazing jaunt, we went on a misty day which made it even more if a mystical drive through the trees that remind you how little you really are in this little world.

I camped here over Thanksgiving and absolutely loved it. The camp grounds were well maintained, staffed with helpful folks and had the cleanest bathrooms I'd ever been to while camping. They stood out so much we actually talked about it over the fire. The park itself is absolutely gorgeous and has a number of trails of different lengths to choose... More
