Only ten minutes from nearby Santa Cruz and five minutes from Felton, the Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park campground offers you a chance to get away from it all, while still being close to amenities in town. The campground is shaded by the surrounding pine and oak forest, and has nearly 30 miles of hikeable trails nearby. It's about a two-mile walk or a five-minute drive from the campground to the Redwood Grove Loop Trail. It's a half-mile walk from the campground to the rare Santa Cruz Sandhills habitat and to the highest point in the park, the Observation Deck. You can see all the way to Monterey on a clear day! With 113 reservable sites, Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park camping is anything but intimate, but is spread out enough not to feel cramped.

We stayed in site 11 last summer. The sites are spacious and tidy. Lots of poison oak on the outside of the rings, but whatever. Several trails weave round and through the campground. It was great fun for children but not knee deep in smalls (and we have smalls).

Fire pits in every site are nice. Good privacy between sites depending on part of campground you are situated

Follow the rules because the CA State Park Rangers will write tickets for not following the rules. Some trails do not allow dogs or alcohol so be sure to read the signs. There are many fun and short trails to check out. Many take a hike to the swimming area at Garden of Eden, but be careful as there have been accidents there. An easy hike from the campground is to Cable Car Beach where there is a mellow area to play in the water. Keep your eyes open for horses on the trail, large trees and beautiful scenery.

They have flush toilets and showers, fire rings, picnic tables. This is a popular place so expect to make reservations long in advance.
