    Default Best Camping in the Redwoods??

    Does anyone have any suggestions on were to camp in the Redwoods?
    I wanted somewhere not too far from the coast, that's breathtaking.
    I've never seen the Redwoods, and this trip will allow me to experience them for the first time and camp there, so I need the best spot :)
    I'll be there somewhere around June 10th, one car, two people, & a tent.
    thanks :)

    I have been to dozens of campgrounds in the redwoods, but I don't know if I have seen the "best one" yet.

    I like the campgrounds found adjacent to the Avenue of the Giants, so maybe that is a good place to consider.

    Larrison has stayed in a few -- here are his recommendations!

  3. Default camping in the redwoods

    Your in luck I happen to live in the Redwoods. While some may recommend the area known as The Avenue of the Giants, by travelling about two hours north to Crescent City you will hit the jackpot. Jedediah Smith State Park. This campground is the jewel of Redwood National park. The campgrpound sits on the banks of the Smith River completly surrounded by old growth redwoods. The park has plenty of hiking, fishing, swimming and wildlife. If you are hungry you can drive up the road 5 minutes for huckelberry pancakes at the Hiouchi cafe. The Park is located about 15 minutes inland from the beach, so you can have the best of both. Crescent City boast a working fishing harbor, surfing, two lighthouses and an aquarium called Ocean World. If you come at the Fourth of July, you will get to see one of the west coast largest fireworks display over Battery Point Lighthouse and the harbor.

    You are correct -- thanks for reminding us -- that is a gorgeous place. I love the view from the old bridge at the mouth of the Klamath River too.

    Thanks for the news about the 4th of July fireworks show!

    Default What is a DP?

    What is a 35-ft DP?

    I drove it a few years ago in a 32-foot 4-WD motorhome -- but it's entirely possible that the state has now restricted the road. I'll try and look it up.
