“The best fourth of july trips ever”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Our group of neighbors have been spending the July 4th holidays at Redwoods River for eight years now, and each one is better than the last. The kids have grown up there enjoying the pie eating contests, playing on the fort, swimming in the pool and of course frolicking in the river and taking the plunge on the rope swing.

Us parents couldn't think of a better way to enjoy our holidays with the kids in an amazingly safe environment that offers everything they like and a chance for us to show off our grilling and campfire skills.

Room Tip: Although there are a number of great cabins and rooms, we spend our vacations there in tents! My...

We stayed in the motel mini suite with a nautical theme, a pretty unique and charming decor with a very comfortable bed. Everything was supplied including basic cooking facilities (not always available in similar places). Billy and Jack were very welcoming. The 'motel' building is deep in the redwood forest so the morning was cool and misty until the sun came through the trees.
A tip for visitors from the UK - the one thing that will make you even more welcome is a supply of Topic bars- Jack's favourite confection.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in the Mini-Suite, it's definitely one of our favorite rooms. Hope you've had a great time in the U.S. and we're glad you chose to stay with us. BTW...we LOVE your tip to the UK travelers (Jack especially). The Topics were gone in a few days and he loved every bite! Thanks so much!! Have a safe flight home. :-)

Redwoods River Resort is a nice little motel/campground in the middle of the redwoods. I enjoyed it during the off season, but I think it might get a bit loud in the summer. There was one family staying above me, and it sounded like a herd of elephants! Aside from that, though, the room was spacious and clean and had a nice view of the trees. The trail down to the river is worth the hike! Billie, the owner, keeps a little convenience store which has pretty much anything one might need while staying there. The only problem I had was that one month later my pet deposit has still not been returned. I contacted the resort and they said they are having problems with their credit card machine. That is unacceptable. Aside from that problem, though, it is a nice little family resort in a beautiful location.

We are glad you had a nice time here in the Off-Season when it is quiet and peaceful. Although we are sorry to hear about the disturbances in the room near you. I wish you had mentioned to us so we could of addressed it. I'm glad we had the chance to speak today about your pet deposit and get that rectified also. Thanks for taking the time to give us a review and hope you'll come back and enjoy one of the cabins that might suit you better. PS - Billie wants to know how your dog is doing. :-)

I have stayed here twice now, and both times were amazing. The place is set in a beautiful part of the Redwoods with easy access to many activities. Enough could never be said about the owners. It was just like family there. They were all very helpful with anything we needed. I would recommend a stay there to anyone. We came to climb in the Redwoods so they were very accommodating with gear we had to get shipped there. My 2 nephews had a great time and also commented on how great Billy is too...They said she is the" sweetest"

Well your photos are amazing! Thanks for posting them here so others can enjoy too. We are so glad you had a great time while you were here. We love to have climbers come stay with us, the only problem is that Jack regrets he can't go with you! Your nephews were charming and we hope you all come back and stay with us again some time.

We stayed here twice- once in the Motel, and once camping, and will review both.

But first- THE PEOPLE WHO RUN THIS PLACE ARE AMAZING. We felt like family staying here. This is a family run place and they are extremely helpful and kind. I cannot stress enough how much of a difference that makes. We went here based on tripadvisor reviews alone and we were not disappointed- the grounds are beautiful, the redwoods impressive, and run by a great family. I want the British lady who runs this place to be my grandma. For reals. She went out of her way to make our stay great and get to know us. Also, great location if you are in northern California- close to Avenue of the Giants.

Motel- Don't let that description fool you- it is more like a comfort lodge- with full glass door and windows overlooking the redwoods dotted throughout the site. Also has a kitchenette, which we did not use. It's a pretty stunning building with steep peaked/ A-frame wooden structure. it is very quiet and peaceful. We stayed in Feb, so pretty cold, but we were toasty in the room and had a great view of the rain and misty trees. Pretty big space, especially considering we were in the cheapest standard room.

Camping- We stopped here again on the way back down (road trip!) and decided to camp. Good spaces and everything is surrounded by trees. The shared bathroom facilities are good, too. The showers are like real showers- not like other camping showers that are just a nozzle in a concrete bunker (haha). They are also FREE. Laundry facilities, too- costs about $3.75 to wash and dry. Also, you can purchase wifi, but is a bit expensive at $4 for 24hrs. Oh, also, there is a cat that lives in the office/reception- awesome.

Basically this place is amazing.

We had a great time. The place was beautiful. We stayed in the Motel which was adequate, but I think next time we will ask for upstairs. The people upstairs were very noisy in the middle of the night. My daughter and her husband stayed in their trailer and it was wonderful! We walked down to the Eel river, which was fun. We drove to the Avenue of the Giant Redwoods which was amazing. The people at the resort were very nice! I would definitely recommend it!

Room Tip: I think upstairs would be quieter at night.

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. I apologize for the noisy neighbors. Maybe next time you could try a Cabin, they are a separate unit and very cozy with gas fireplaces and kitchenettes. Glad you were able to visit the Avenue Of The Giants, it's very beautiful and a great time to visit when it's quiet and peaceful. Hope to see you again!

I've Been going to the Redwoods rivers resort for the past 40yrs the last 25yrs I've been coming with my husband, kids and now grandkids. To me its truly the perfect place for all of us. To top it all off Billy (the owner) is the sweetest. She goes out of her way to see that stay is everything we hope for.
