  • This campground is out of this world beautiful. You are camping within the redwoods which is why we came. The stunningly clear smith river runs right through here and if you’re lucky, you’ll get to hear it through the night. This campground is close to everything and I would stay here again and again. The only downside is the price and you have to pay for showers. Sites are $35 and showers are $3 for 12 minutes. Other than that, it was awesome!
  • This is a place on earth you MUST go! The beauty here is unreal and something even pictures can never do justice. The majesty of these towering trees are amazingly beautiful and bring peace to the soul. As you look to the treetops you realize how small you are in this big world. But even a tree can remind you of how much God loves every small person, by the creation of the beauty and grandeur of the Redwoods.
