Jedediah Smith Campground
Reviewed 20 July 2012

My boyfriend and I are avid tent campers, and have traveled all over the US and Canada, exploring one campsite at a time - and this is one of the most memorable experiences for us!! The lush surroundings were absolutely breathtaking; I was in awe of the towering, beautiful redwoods all around us! The redwoods also offered a lot of privacy for our campsite, which is something that I really appreciated.

I highly recommend this campsite to anyone who wants an up-close and personal encounter with the Redwood Forest! You won't be disappointed!

We stayed at site 22 in a motor home. The site was the largest and most private I have ever camped in in an RV. We had a walking path to a nice beach on the vey clean river. Wonderful visitor center. This was one of our favorite places in Redwood National park.

Room Tip: I think site 22 is the best site in the ark if you like privacy. It is close to the river, but not...

My wife and I just spent four nights camping here with our tent trailer. I have some positive comments but many more negative ones. The campground fee is expensive, priced too much for sites without RV hookups. It's the most I've ever seen for a State Park. There are showers but you have to pay and even the firewood is costly. The campground has new restrooms but their design is crazy. Instead of a standard men's and women's, each with 4 toilets -- like you see everywhere -- the buildings have 4 showers and 4 private unisex restrooms. The result is that you have to keep circling the building, trying the doors until one opens. Of course there are always several others playing this game with you. Now I'm a guy. Most restroom trips are fast but here, you have to wait with the women. There's more: you're waiting for people to leave the private restroom each with sinks so you're also waiting for them to do their morning/evening routine, makeup, whatever. I'll move on after I make one more point. Like I said, I'm a guy. No matter how long I wait, when an older lady comes up, of course I let her go first. Bathroom waits exceeded 20 minutes every day. OK, moving on: the campground has clouds of mosquitoes, so bring Deet. It's beautiful and the trees are amazing. It's quiet. I figure the steep fees keep the young people and their loud music away.
