  • We spent two days hiking the trails here. They are well-marked and easy to navigate. Most trails are the size of a one-lane road. Lot's of beautiful new growth redwoods and run-off waterfalls. $6 for ...  more »
  • Stayed on a weeknight in the spring, one night as an affordable & quiet place to stay as we were passing through the middle of California. Place was completely empty for us - probably not normal.  more »

  • Was expecting no shade on a hot afternoon wedding at the amphitheater. Turned out to be cooler than the valley below and plenty of shade provided by a lovely gazebo for the reception. A serene, lovely spot to explore and enjoy in the Bay Area. Recommend for an alternative to the traditional wedding venues!
  • This park is lovely; it's on the hilltops above the traffic. There is traffic getting there, but it's worth it: there are tons of hiking trails & things to see. The campground had nice large spots with picnic tables & fire-rings; firewood is available at stations throughout the campground. We hiked a few trails; all are well maintained & very well mapped with lots of signage to point you in the correct direction. We saw deer, wild turkeys, lots of squirrels & lots of blue jays & other birds. There is a shower house that was very nice, along with restrooms throughout the park. Full hookups for RVs, plus lots of tent camping & group sites.
