Originally added by The Outbound Collective

Come one, come all - the majestic Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park is amidst the miles of old growth redwoods that stretch up the coast of Northern California. Jedediah Smith Redwoods contains 7% of all old-growth redwoods left in the world.

Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park offers activities for everyone: you can backpack and hike through lush rainforests, or fish, snorkel, and kayak in the Smith River (popular film The Last of the Mohicans was filmed just upstream!). Howland Hill Road is perfect for a scenic drive filled with unique historical facts. The entire family can enjoy a campfire program at Jedediah Smith Campground! 

There are an abundance of tent sites, along with four cabins that are ADA accessible. The cabins have electricity, heaters, and lights (but no kitchen or bathroom). 

Four cabins, all of which are ADA accessible, are located within the Jedediah Smith Redwoods Campground within Redwood National and State Parks.

The campgrounds remain open year round, and the park is open from dawn till dusk for day use. There are no pets allowed. To make a reservation, search for Jedediah Smith Redwoods SP here.

Overall rating: 


I’m not typically a fan of official campsites, but boy is this place magical. How can you beat camping beneath the tallest trees in the world? You can’t, really.

We want to acknowledge and thank the past, present, and future generations of all Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples whose ancestral lands we travel, explore, and play on.
