Beautiful and lush smaller park. Great for a smaller hike- we did a total of 3 mile walk. It was beautiful and relatively quiet.

My husband and I had a wonderful time under the stars camping here. There was hiking, running water for drinking water and toliets, showers, wood for purchase, nice man to help us. It was a great time.

Beautiful State Park with incredible trails for hiking, but for me, biking among the giant Redwoods and fast moving streams. Trails were easy and included bridges and direction signs. Available facilities for camping including cabins for rent...but be sensitive to their popularity and the need for advance reservations!…

This is a beautiful drive through an impressive state park, but make sure to be careful at night as it is very dark and there are a lot of curves. We came across two women walking on the road with no lights on and their two unleashed dogs walking on the road.

My boyfriend and I went camping here the first weekend of May and loved it. I have described my experience camping below. We camped in site 56 and I was a concerned we wouldn't have any privacy. I was completely wrong! The campgrounds on the outside of the Orchard Hill ring are tucked away in the nooks and crannies of the beautiful surrounding redwoods. We checked in with the lovely camp hosts who used a golf cart to deliver wood to campsites (cash only!). The host was very welcoming and happy to assist us at even late hours. Our campground was maybe a 1 minute walk to the bathroom facilities which were clean enough and stocked with toilet paper. If I recall correctly, showers are coin operated and are 25 cents per 2.5 minutes of hot water, very cheap! There are only 3 showers (one male, one unisex and one female) per bathroom unit, but we didn't encounter any lines. I partially subtracted a star because the male shower was out of order, and the unisex shower broken while we were there. The working female shower was hot and working. There wasn't really a bear box (I don't think there are any bears in the area), but they did have a small-ish critter box which we used for grab and go items that we didn't want to store in the car. The other campers were mostly couples, but there were 2 large groups of teens. They were a little loud but respectful of quiet hours. Hiking wise, we hiked to Kent lake straight from our campground. We mostly saw bikers along the trail which was mostly well maintained. After that, we hiked down ox trail which is need of some repair but was easy enough. Overall, we had a very pleasant experience for anyone who loves redwoods and easy camping.…
