Wonderful serene wonder near city
It is a beautiful place with nice vegetation around and clean facilities. The host is friendly and very helpful. The place is well maintained and the staff checks periodically if anyone needs help. Love the place and will visit again for sure. The hiking trails are amazing.
A truly unique and authentic experience.
It’s the kind of place I want to ensure is preserved for future generations of my family to experience.
The hosts are hospitable and awesome stewards of this historic park.
This place is beautiful. It's a bit tucked away - you'll start wondering if you're still on the right road as you drive deeper and deeper into the forest on a dusty gravel road. But that also takes you away from all the noise of civilization, and you can still get to Mendocino or Fort Bragg in about 20-25 min. No cell phone reception, just the sound of birds and frogs at night (we found them to be quite soothing). At this time (late May 2021), they had opened only a small subset of the cabins in camp 1. We were just four parties that shared the showers (hot water, no coins needed!) and dish washing room, so no lines. The staff was super helpful and friendly, provided us with tips for hiking and day trips and were responsive to our feedback. The redwoods are beautiful, the river is nice and there's lots of wildlife there, including a big turtle that we say laying her eggs. The sunny meadow is shared between 36, 37, and 38, with designated parking spots and tables.
