Cool, clear mornings in the heart of the forest is what the two campgrounds inside Hendy Woods Park, Azalea and Wildcat, promise. Set between Little Hendy and Big Hendy groves, these campgrounds have 43 and 49 spots, respectively. Each site has a table, a barbeque stove, food locker, and nearby access to piped drinking water and hot showers. There are also four small cabins available, and the more adventurous can make the trek to a hike-and-bike camp as well.

You can't go wrong here! Nearly every single campsite is spacious and flat, though we prefer the ones on the outer perimeter rather than the inside. Bathrooms here are spacious and clean (even the showers)!

Hiking in this tiny park is minimal - just a few miles in total - but the trees are spectacular.Trail Mavens enjoying breakfast after a morning hike through the redwoods!Blackberries picked in early July on the side of the road leading to the main redwood grove.Flat, spacious campsites!

Nicely kept campsites with a good amount of privacy. Try to snag a spot on the outer side of the outer road for even more privacy. Good hiking trails from the campgrounds but mostly just to walk amongst the redwoods rather than vertical climbing. Showers are coin operated so bring quarters or save water!

Your shirtless host reporting on Hendy Woods S.P.
I think this S.P. is the ultimate escape.
This ancient Redwood forests is only about 3 hours from San Francisco.
The trees our est. to be 300' tall and could be up to 1000 years old. Hike around the massive stumps and fallen trees and the red wood groves.
The day use and the picnicking area is on the banks of the Navarro river-over looking the the Big Hendy Grove.
The camp hosts @ this camp keeps the camp sites clean and well maintained.
This park has a dump station
Make sure you hike the nature trails though out the park.

I've been here so many times, and it gets better every time. Great location for exploring, beautiful Redwoods and big fairly spread out campground. Sold!

Loud - lots of people and depending on their camping manners you might be listening to their loud music until 2am and have 15 kids running through your campsite at 5am. Rangers don't really enforce the #of people per campsite or quiet hours. Fun to be near the river though, and is beautiful.
