Best in the redwoods!

This is by far my top place to camp in the redwoods! All the campsites are among the redwood forest and because of this the sites seem secluded and private. The campground has nice showers and bathrooms. Also, there is access to the river, which is a nice walk from your site! The fog in the morning was beautiful!

Beautiful campground surrounded by redwoods and river

The trees are amazing and the river sparkling. Not to fear from the beach either. One of my favorite campgrounds.


This is a surreal place. Stayed 2 nights. Tent camping spots were great everything was nicely maintained. Foot traffic was a bit heavy from noon-4pm. To stand amongst this beautiful trees it is very breathtaking. Hiking trails were great and maintained. The scouts trail was the busiest by far.

Best camping in the US

This is one of the if not the best camping sites in the US

Very private

Campsites are very private and give a great feeling of being located right in the heart of the Redwoods. Crescent city is a short drive as is many other tourist attractions.


Many trails, endless hiking

Amenities & redwoods, what more can you want?!

Quintessential redwoods campground! Old growth forest, very shady campground with adequate privacy and easy access to redwoods park. Great restrooms available. Can get crowded, try panther flat campground if you prefer more solitude.

Setting is wonderful

This was a very nice campground. The setting amongst the redwoods was breath taking. It is also located along a river. This campground is within a short picturesque drive to a town, to fill up on groceries, gas, and just to see the Pacific Ocean. The trees are amazing. Our site was nice and backed up against a trail. Food storage containers available at each site. Bathrooms were ok, I mean it was actual plumbing. They have showers but other campgrounds have nicer ones. There is a visitor center and you can purchase firewood at this campsite. Ranger at the entrance was friendly. I would go back.

Breath taking. All I can say!

I spent about a month around Jedediah Smith park. Breath taking! Absolutely amazing! Spend some days on the trails and spend some days on the river. Awesome white water. Do what I did and cliff jump at 5:30am.

Easy access, popular, with great bathrooms/showers.

This campground is a very popular spot, located on the north side of the Redwoods National and State Parks. The sites are decently sized, accommodating two to three tents, but the roads would be tough to navigate in a large RV or with a long trailer. The price per campsite is high ($35), but if comfortable bathrooms and available showers are important to you, then it is worth the money. Heated, tile bathrooms with hot water and coin-op showers (25 cents a minute) are a luxury. The Jedidiah State Park visitor's center is located within the campground area, and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Also of note, this is one of the only campgrounds located within old-growth Redwood trees, making it especially pretty and interesting to visit.
