Redwood National Park

Redwood National Park

Redwood National Park contains the tallest living things on earth, evergreen trees that grow to 350 feet. The park was established specifically to protect these trees because it is only here in Oregon that they now survive. You have to visit in person to see their majestic grandeur.

When planning your trip, find tips and trails, camping spots and things to do at the National Park Service website.

Directions

Redwood National and State Parks is located in northernmost coastal California - almost on the Oregon border. The parks are about 60-miles long, with four visitor centers from north to south. We are a six to seven-hour drive (325 miles) north of San Francisco, a six-hour drive (330 miles) south of Portland, OR and a four-hour drive (170 miles) west of Redding, CA.

All Park - Operating Hours

The national and state parks are always open to enjoy. Roads, trails and public access remain open year round. Some facilities are closed in the winter season (November-May)

Weather

Visitors should be prepared for cooler and damp weather. Dress in layers and expect to get wet. Year-round temperatures along California's redwood coast: mid-40s°F (7°C) to mid-60s°F (18°C). Summer can be foggy, with highs occasionally reaching low 70s°F (20°C). Winters are cooler with considerable rain. October through April averages 60-80 inches of rain over the region.

Fees

Redwood National and State Parks are fee free with the exception of day use areas within the Prairie Creek Redwoods, Del Norte Coast Redwoods, and Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Parks. Both state park day use passes and Interagency Federal Passes (Senior, Annual, Access, etc.) are accepted within these three state parks.
