Description

This campground is set in a grove, not far off the banks of the Smith River. The campground has a total of 86 campsites, and access to fire pits, restrooms, hot showers and food lockers. Settling in here, you will be tenting-up in between 200 year old trees with plenty of hiking, swimming and fishing options nearby. This is a great place to recoup after a long day of backpacking or rafting where you can fall asleep to the sound of wind through the trees.

Report from your Shirtless Host Steve

This is the last large state park before you get into Oregon..
It is off HWY 199. A must to stop at
It has camping hiking fishing swimming in the Smith River
And the Howland hill Rd. A must to drive though. Off this Rd.
Is the Stout Grove Loop also the Boy Scout tree trail and off Hwy.
199 is Simpson Reed Grove Loop
If you primitive camping ( get a access permit ) take little bald hill trail
Unbeleaveable hike both in and out
Out the back of the camp is a foot bridge. ( summer only ) is a hoot
Over the Smith
This park will accommodate R.Vs up 36 ft. No hookups
Camping is fun but family camping is the best
So bring your friends and family and camp at Jedediah Smith

Much preferred this Jedediah Smith campground over Gold Bluffs campground in Redwoods National Park. Nothing beats waking up in a majestic redwood grove! It is a busy campground, but most of the sites seemed to be spaced adequately apart with plenty of greenery to provide seclusion. Close access to the river and to Stout Grove nature walk.

No need to get in your car if you are staying at this campsite! One of the best hike's in the part, Stout Grove, is an easy walk if the bridge across the river is open.Magical campsite with plenty of seclusion. Tree huggin'

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

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.
