“Amazing natural beauty...don't miss it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2011

Redwood National Park has so much to offer. In addition to some of the tallest trees in the world, the are also miles of beautiful coastline to explore. My favorites were Hidden Beach and the Cathedral Trail. The Tall Trees Trail is great also. If you want to visit it be sure to request a pass from the visitors center early in the day before they reach their 50 per day limit. Also, check out the Elk in the meadows. The rangers can tell you the best places to look.

“Amazing Experience. Never to be Forgotten. Would visit again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2011

After leaving Klamath we were advised to travel along The Norman B Drury Scenic Parkway. We left the freeway and almost at once we were immersed amongst the giant trees. We heard the drip drip from the canopy of the trees. We saw loads of banana slugs and beautiful insect life. It was so unspoilt and an experience we will treasure. We highly recommend this route as it is quieter than the main redwood stands and just as impressive.

“Thomas H. Kuchel Visitor Centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2011

Terrific place with a terrain 3d model of the area and an old traditional tree canoe outside. Plus heaps of cool birds nests - see heaps of dropping on the floor? Look up & you'll see their nests! Inside you can watch a 12 min video about the area & the trees. Nice souvenirs with a great range of books. Friendly & helpful rangers to help plan your trip through Redwood NP. Definitely worth a stop & you can even collect your park stamp for the kids parks passport too.

“Amazing trees”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2011

We stopped in a winery in Ashland and a lady over heard us talking about our plan to drive to the southern Oregon coast. She recommended stopping at the Stout Grove of the Redwood national Park and it was one of the best recommendations we got. This place is just amazing. It is not crowded, the trees are magnificent, and you can actually get close. We walked on two of the fallen giants and got a real impression about their height. If we will ever be in the area again, we will certainly stop again.

“Amazing Trees”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2011

The Redwood National Park was wonderful. I would visit the Cresent City visitor center before anywhere else. Stout Grove has the old growth trees. It is where you will find some of the largest and oldest trees in the park. There is also a river that you can hike down to in the Stout Grove section. There is only room for one car down the road to get to Stout Grove.

The Rosevelt Elk are not that easy to find, but the visitor center can guide you in the right direction. We saw some, but we had to climb down a hill to view them. They were shy that day.

If you like tide pools, go to the lighthouse in Cresent City at low tide. It is much better than standing on the rocks in the park. Even the Ranger told us that low tide in the park was not that safe. We were able to see several things in the water. Don't miss the seal rescue center( I don't remember the name, but it can be found on the internet). It is near the lighthouse.

We did not have any luck at Kalamath Overlook, but it may have been the time of year that we went. On your way to Kalamath, stop at the Drive Through Tree. It was a fun little photo stop for a few bucks.

We were told by our hotel that in order to find sandollars, you had to go out before daylight. We went out in the dark with headlamps on to find sandollars. When I went out in daylight early in the morning, the sandollars were covering the beach. I think that they wanted us to look dumb.
