Camping among redwoods

I camped here one year for my birthday, at the Sempervirens Campground.  It was such a gorgeous spot to camp.  The sites felt pretty spaced out, and didn't feel noisy at all.  Our site even had a fairy ring, so it felt pretty special!  The campground was also close to hiking, so we didn't even have…

Redwoods are lovely

We stayed here the summer before it burned down. It was 95 degrees in this redwood forest. I am grateful to have visited these big trees. We had a great trip. It was a nice park with a lot of old redwood trees. Fun creek behind campground for pups to splash around. Easy flat trails to walk. There…

Gorgeous campground in spectacular state park

It's been a while since we've camped here but we still have great memories of this wonderful treasure.  It's one of the few campgrounds where - despite how numerous the campsites are - they did not feel crowded together.  Our only suggestion is to avoid camping in the summer time - as there were…

LOVE this majestic state park and its campground

Big trees, scenic hikes, waterfalls (in the spring) and spacious sites ... what's not to like???  Okay, for those who welt up with mosquito bites, the ONE nit I have is that the lack of air movement during the summer = LOTS of bites.  I highly recommend camping in the spring or fall if you are…

Huckleberry drive-in campground

So sad the devastation of last month's fires on the oldest state park in California, home to thr biggest redwoods south of San Francisco. We were lucky to have camped there this summer and when it reopens will return.

Our space was in the Huckleberry campsite. My only complaint was the proximity…

Redwood Wonder

I am a tent camper so that is what I know.  I do know there are cabins here as well, but I have only seen them, not stayed in one.

This is a big park down at the end of a long winding road.  I have camped in the group site and individuals sites.  All appear wooded.  But do look for poison…

Redwoods, Waterfalls & Trails

Big Basisn is a bit hard to get to with a long and winding road... but you get a great park in the Redwoods with a creek running through it.  This can be a busy crowded park so I like to enjoy it in the spring and the fall.  In spring you get wild flowers as a treat.

Great nature hikes here…

Beautiful and peaceful

Gorgeous location! Stayed at Huckleberry Campground for a night and loved it. Very serene, beautiful redwoods and small trails by the campsite. Facilities were nice and clean, showers required quarters. There was no AT&T cell service anywhere, but you can get free wifi at the Park Headquarters.…

Idyllic campground close to loads of beauty

We stayed here with our 2 dogs last November as a nice winter getaway from L.A. We got one of the tent cabins, which are just adorable and so cozy. The sites are nice and distanced from each other, bathrooms were in great shape and it was pet friendly. We got a package with the tent cabin that came…

Beautiful, remote, serene

This is a great place to camp for the sheer beauty and stillness. I would say it is not perfect because it is very remote and there are not as many easy/moderate hiking trails as I would hope. There are many very long hiking excursions, however, that seem to be really popular. Still a great place…

Living in the trees

Great setting, awesome trails to trek,  can get busy during the weekend. Redwoods galore and look out for the slugs please don’t step on them. If you need a place to chill this is the spot.

Amazing camp sites

No matter what site you reserve, all the site are amazing! We had #108. Near the bathroom, wash room, garbage dumpsters. The only con was the windy road! I eat sour patch kids to help with getting car sick. Easy to find. The site is pet friendly. You can only walk the dogs at paved areas, no…
