A state reserve for these unique trees some of which are huge. Camping is available in the reserve. Walking the trails from the parking lot at the entrance is free. Driving through the park bears a fee.

The trees are spectacular. If you've never been in a redwood forest you will be awed by this one. There are many trails--some easy; some challenging. Signage is very helpful, but because trails crisscross each other and are bisected by a road it is wise...More

The trees are amazing however if you feel more adventurous do the the east ridge trail (can be steep in places so good walking shoes, take enough water if hot). This will take you up through the tress and out above them. When you come...More

So quiet and peaceful. We were here fairly early, maybe around 9:00 or so? The office wasn't even open yet. This was a far cry from Muir Woods, which we visited last year. There were WAY less people and most were respectful of their surroundings...More

Truly awe-inspiring! Followed the advice here and arrived a little after 8am. The kiosk and visitors center were not yet open so we parked there and walked in via the Pioneer Trail. It was very peaceful. We saw very few people until about 10. It...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is there RV parking available at the Visitor Center? Does the lot fill up? If we park at the Visitor Center, can we walk/hike from there to see all the major sites in the park? Any insight would be helpful. Thanks

You know I'm not all that sure about RV parking. You can indeed walk the whole park from the parking lot. The town of Guerneville is also fun to explore. The taco truck at the Safeway parking lot is the best!

Alas, dogs are not allowed on any of the reserve's trails. I'd say the answer has to be no.
Is there an admission cost?

We parked in the lot & walked in so there was no charge. If you drive up to the theater, etc, there is an admission fee.
