COVID19 and Permits.During COVID-19 operations we will only be issuing backcountry camping and Tall Trees Trail day-use permits virtually. Visitors need to complete an online form in order to apply for a permit. If a permit is available it will emailed right to you.
Based on guidance from local and state health agencies, Redwood National and State Parks (RNSP) will re-open different facilities and increase access in a phased approach. Safely opening our backcountry campsites, dispersed camping at Redwood Creek and the Tall Trees Grove is part of this phased operation.
In 2020 because of COVID-19, it is likely that the number of permits and sites that are available each day might be less than what was available each day in previous years. Please note that the number of available permits and sites in RNSP that are shown on printed brochures, websites or other publications may not be accurate during COVID-19 phased opening and operations.
