The only way to spend the night in the parks is to stay at a developed campground (reservations recommended), or hike to a backcountry campsite (free permit required).
We have no hotels or lodges in the park. There are plenty of lodging and camping options outside the park.
With planning, camping in Redwood National and State Parks will be an enjoyable and rewarding pastime for visitors of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels.
We have four developed campgrounds that are all managed by the California Department of Parks and Recreation. Summer reservations are essential and campground reservations are made through the California State Parks. These campgrounds are easily accessed, well established, and provide RV and tent campers with basic amenities. Learn more about our developed campgrounds.
For those who want to get away, Redwood National and State Parks offers more than 200 miles (322 km) of hiking trails and seven designated backcountry camps. Free backcountry permits are required. Learn more about backcountry camping.
