Long, sometime harrowing downhill to get to the park. Beautiful redwood grove with large campsites and a lot of space. All the site I saw were under the redwoods so well shaded. Have regular ameneties and all seemed well maintained.
We did a lot of hiking here - there are waterfalls and ponds to find.
Was here for 3 nights and couldn't have been better. weather is great with all the shade provided by the beautiful trees. Plenty of hiking!!
Easy shady campsites. Miles of trails and very easy to get to from most parts of the Bay Area.
the site was very secluded, slightly “hike-in” pretty close to the parking lot but not close enough to see headlights or hear too much from our site. lots of tall trees and bushes hiding away our little plot. great hikes and waterfalls, only issue was mosquitos ate us alive in July.
Campsite #9 and it was right by the bathroom but the site was spacious and waking up nestled amongst all those redwoods is just the best. Host was super nice and accommodating and the girls loved riding the scooters all around the campground. Slugs and meets all over the place . The mosquitoes drove us nuts so make sure you have candles and repellent!
This review is for the backpacking/trail camp area at Slate Creek in Portola Redwoods. Stayed here for a one-night intro to backpacking trip with my younger sister. The hike to the sites was very manageable, a great way to test out gear while also spending time in a lovely forest. Well maintained trails and brand-new food lockers at the sites. When we were there, there was only one other set of campers in the site next to ours--they were so quiet we hardly could tell they were there. This trail camp has a composting toilet which was well stocked with toilet paper, and Slate Creek is not a far walk to collect and filter water. We loved all the banana slugs and little calochortus wildflowers on our hike. The park's visitor center has great displays about the local flora and fauna.
Gorgeous redwoods nice trails stellar ble jays squeaking up a storm and plenty of beautiful trails to hike. Added bonus the camp spots aren’t too close to each other!
We questival'd here and it fulfilled all our needs. We loved it! Thanks guys
What a beautiful spot to camp. Roads are super curvy must drive slow. But worth the log drive there.
Fun times in the redwoods for #questival #cotopaxi
