Come to Redwood Regional Park to stay the night and to enjoy some pawtastic hiking among 150-foot trees. This former logging area offers three primitive group campsites that house up to 50 people. There are chemical toilets available at each location but no showers. These are walk-in facilities. When you make your reservations, the park will issue vehicle permits for the staging area lot. You'll have to pack in all your supplies and pack out any waste when you camp here.
The Fern Dell, Trail's End, and Girls' Camp group sites all sit beside Redwood Creek and offer easy access to the Stream Trail. This mostly paved pathway follows the water's course through Redwood Canyon for about 0.9 miles. Enjoy scenic views as you travel under the shade of the tall trees. You can also combine the West Ridge and East Ridge Trails for a nearly eight-mile loop through the park. The natural-surface trek offers panoramic vistas and more challenging terrain than Stream Trail. After exploring your surroundings, settle back in camp for a picnic. Finish your day around the fire ring to roast marshmallows and swap stories. Check with the park for any fire warnings or restrictions before you come.
Although dogs are welcome in many parts of the park, they cannot join you in the group campsites here. If you're planning an overnight, you'll have to leave Fido at home.
If you want to go camping with a bunch of friends, check out Redwood Regional Park. This facility offers quiet sites by the water. Enjoy hiking in the 1,830-acre property among redwoods, pines, grasslands, and chaparral. Take in the spectrum of wildflower colors and watch for various wildlife as you explore the area. You must make reservations at least five days in advance. In addition to the $75/night camping fee, there's a $5/day entrance permit charge.
