The vibe at Jedediah Smith Redwoods Campground
Drop some Jedediah Smith Redwoods Campground knowledge on us.
Easily one of my favorite sites on a cross country trip from New York to Los Angeles. The river was very accessible, and a beautiful place to relax and swim. There are a decent amount of sites, but most are separated by massive Red Wood trees. The campground was only a short drive to Crescent City which is an awesome place to get a nice dinner. I can't wait to go back.
Easy drive-up campsites, quick (5 minute) walk to the river. Close to some amazing hiking spots, and surprisingly close to the Oregon border. Sites have picnic tables and bear lockers, and hot showers (with coins)/restrooms. Sites are relatively close to one another, and there are lots of families with kids.
This is one of our favorite spots to camp in the Redwoods. My wife and I are back in Florida now and man, we do miss this spot. If your lucky enough to camp close to the river then do it. You can here the flow of the Smith all night. The sights have Bear proof food lockers, fire pits, clean showers and restrooms. A plus!!
Incredible place. There are sites on the river and sites in the redwoods, honestly they are all fantastic. My husband and I actually stayed in one of the cabins here overnight on a whim - the cabins are equipped with fo-fireplace that pumps out heat (we stayed on Christmas night in December) it was warm and adorable. They have lights, a broom, a fan, 4 bunks, and a perfect shelf for all your cooking and supplies. The place was 100% spotless which I always appreciate. The cabins were accessable too! A fire pit and a grill were ready to use. Giant red woods towered over us. It was one of the best camp sites I've ever stayed at.
We LOVED this campground! We camped at one of the walk-in sites and it was 100% worth it...the walk isn't even that far (as in, I could basically still see my car!). Giant Redwoods, beautiful ferns and foliage surround every campsite. Each site has its own character! The river is a short walk from the campground and absolutely beautiful. We were also impressed with the very nice bathrooms and showers! This was the most magical and relaxing campground in the Redwoods. We will definitely be back!
Well worth the drive! Beautiful campground, every site feels secluded. Snag a river site if you can. Warm clean showers to boot - bring quarters. Check out Hiouchi Café for pancakes so large they spill over the side of the plate. Nearby Stout Grove is a must for ancient trees, take in the stillness.
Report from your Shirtless Host on Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park
If you headed south from Oregon or north to Oregon on Hwy 101 or east or west on Hwy 199. You have to stop and camp at this Park. This park has a few of the tallest Red Woods in the World. Also this is a 5 star park in it self.
The camp grounds are clean and it has Cabins, hiking trails, the Smith River running though it. Camp sites right on the river it most likely an adventure of a life time for you and your family! You are right in the middle of the redwoods so be ready for redwood dust. But that's the price you pay for such a beautiful place. Don't forget it is pay showers. Things to do is kayaking,wild life viewing and visitor center
