VERY family friendly park. The kids around us were having a wonderful time riding their bikes. Lots of folks walking their dogs on leashes. Access to the creek is not easy unless you are ok with steep embankments. Overall the setting amongst the redwoods was absolutely beautiful. We would definitely come back. The spaces are fairly close together but we have seen closer. We camped at Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Town with major grocery story is less than 5 miles from park. Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk was less than an hour. (depending on traffic)

This was one of our favorite RV Parks since arriving in California. If you're looking for true resort-like amenities (hot tubs, tennis courts, shuffleboard, etc.) then maybe you'll be disappointed. We prefer a more natural setting though, and Santa Cruz Redwoods fit the bill perfectly, especially after our prior parking-lot resort experience. It's more like an outdoor camping experience (including a large section for tents), with many families having campfires nightly, kids playing, people walking dogs, large groups sitting outside together enjoying the weather and the surroundings. We took our dog down to the river that runs along the campground so he could enjoy a bit of swimming. You can also wade across the river (ankle or knee deep depending on recent rains) directly into the Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park with all its trails. If you don't want to wade, the entrance to the state park is a mile down the road from the campground. We saw no full-time/permanent RVs except for the camp hosts, and every site we saw was tidy. We were lucky in that our site (#61) was very spacious, but some other sites looked pretty tight. The downside to our site was that it received almost no sun due to the tall trees, and it was chilly all week in April in the shade. Some of the sites get sunlight, but not many. I imagine in summer the shade is great. The manager and staff were extremely friendly and helpful and went out of their way multiple times to accommodate us. We were a last minute arrival (being dissatisfied with our prior RV Park) and they didn't have a site we could stay in for 10 consecutive nights. We'd need to move to their overflow space after half our stay, but they kept their eyes open and rearranged some incoming guests when there was a cancelation, and we ended up not having to move. Excellent customer service! The nearby town of Felton is small but very cute and has all the necessary amenities. We'll definitely return, hopefully in warmer weather! We camped at Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Santa Cruz Farmer's Market moves between five different locations depending on the day of the week. The downtown Santa Cruz one was largest, the one in Scotts Valley was nearest to the campground but much smaller. http://www.santacruzfarmersmarket.org/

If you stay here you will need to bring your skateboard and old dirty grunge clothes to fit into this RV "Resort". There are a lot of full timers in ram shackle rigs that are falling apart and kids running all over the park day and night with no supervision at all. The trees are nice but you won't ever see the sun while staying here. You feel like a "Troll" living under a bridge. The "Manager" is a complete buffoon that is the nastiest and most surly person I have ever met. The rest rooms are so so but can't be used without a snow mobile outfit since they are so cold. Located by the little town of Felto; which, is a nice little area. Would not ever stay here again. I think Nicholson stayed here during the filming of the "Shining" or was it Burt during "Deliverance"? Make sure to bring your “Banjo” if you stay at this wonderful “Resort”. We camped at Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed in a riverside spot that felt nice and isolated from the rest of the park. The tall redwood trees are absolutely lovely, providing lots of nice shade, and the river is slow moving but still peaceful. The staff is very friendly, and the bathrooms were fairly clean. The fountain area is really a quaint little town with lots of fun activities, I really like the state park just across the river. Access to Santa Cruz is also very easy via the fun to drive Highway 9. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here over Labor Day. The spot we had was very tight. The last night we were there they rented the spot next to us to over 10 people. They had a tent, trailer, and many cots that they slept outside on. I talked to the manager, and he said it was a camp and outside sleeping was OK. I don't quite understand for the next year they aren't going to allow tents but you can sleep outside. He also said he couldn't control the number of people in a site. The people leaned items on our RV & we were unable to open our storage bins. There were also a lot of skate boarders. One almost ran into my dog but did run into one of their golf carts. They are dangerous because they had no brakes on them. My 9 year old had a great time riding her bike around the camp. They had a breakfast Sat & Sun. We went to the Saturday one and it was OK. I don't think they clean the site real good, for there was buckets of sand on our table we had to clean. The check-in was great and they were very nice. The park is pretty in the redwoods next to the river. They have two really nice spots next to the river for 85.00 but they are tight. Overall we enjoyed ourselves.

We just recently spent two weeks within this campground. This campground is located within the Redwoods, close to Roaring Camp Railroad and Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. Laundry room was clean, but the exterior building needs some work. Cable TV provided worked well. Wi-Fi constantly down. On one weekend, we only had access to Wi-Fi late Sunday night. Wi-Fi also seems to go down nightly. Many campers were long term, and these RV’s appeared rough, which presented a negative look on the park. Many buildings within the park were falling apart. Campfire? Well, you must "rent" a self-contained fire-pit from the office. Restrooms/Showers need much updating. No satellite reception due to tall trees. We thought being shaded by the trees would be nice, but it was always damp and gloomy, and our trailer slides and awning were filled with tree droppings. Campground is expensive. The park manager was rude when he reluctantly issued a refund for the one day we left early, but he thought it was important to school us on their policy, huff and puff, explaining this will not happen again. We did pay for 2 weeks. Did we ask for any refund when we checked in and discovered the rec. room and club house were not available? No. Did we educate the park manager / owner that only half of the listed features were available? No. A simple thank you for your business, a "brief" explanation about their policy and completing a refund would generate more repeat business. We are currently on a 2 year adventure taking our RV throughout the US, and have been RV'ing for many years. Therefore, we have an idea between high-standard qualities and poor quality. This campground is in need of much TLC. Don't be deceived by the photos on their website or listed amenities. We camped at Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful to park in the redwood trees. Lot #41 was difficult to level with a 29' rig. The step was waaaay up in the air. About 8 miles to Santa Cruz Beach. Would go back, but request a more level spot. We camped at Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was so amazing. We really enjoyed being nestled in the redwoods, and we were able to walk into Henry Cowell State Park (by crossing a shallow stream -- I wish they had a little footbridge or a log or something), which was great for easy hiking. The park is small and you feel tucked into a forest. It is very kid and pet friendly. The staff was all very nice. The weekly rate of $300 (off-season) was very reasonable for this park. The clubhouse and other facilities are recently remodeled. The park was sold out most of our stay, so we feel lucky we were able to get a week on fairly short notice. A lot of guests were locals who come several times a year, so you know it's a great place. We can't wait to come back again next time we are passing through.

We stayed one night and found the park to be delightful. We had a river view site (by pulling in forward) and plenty of space between us and our neighbors. There is an area to wash dishes with clean sinks and both the bathroom and shower were spotless. The walk to the river is a little steep but very nice. They are currently rebuilding the clubhouse and adding handicap access. Staff in the office was super friendly and gave our dogs some treats.

We stayed at this park for eight nights over the New Year's holiday. The location of the park was ideal for visits to Santa Cruz, Monterey, the redwood parks, and the Bay Area. Although many of the sites are close together, our site was away from the rest, and was very private. It was a bit difficult to back our trailer in to the site, but the staff was very helpful in directing us and getting us situated. The restrooms and facilities, although older, were extremely clean and attractive, although the owners should consider adding heaters to the bathrooms; it was VERY cold inside during late night "visits". All of the staff at the park were very helpful and friendly, and the long term residents (there are a few) were also very friendly; we made lot's of friends during our stay. I was a little disappointed that a $11 fee was charged to put a tent up in our site, even though we had plenty of room without encroaching on anybody else's site or space; this is the first time I've ever encountered a fee like this. Typically we stay in campgrounds rather than RV parks, but I would rate this park a "10" with respect to other RV parks I have stayed in. We camped at Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

First stay at this park and will return. It is a small park and we stayed on river view site. Site 22 provides a nice view of the river. Felton is close to Santa Cruz and the park borders a state park, which has nice hikes and great grove of redwoods. Nothing fancy, but clean and friendly, with nice camping under the redwood trees.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Some sites are close to one another but our site was more secluded. We did not use their restroom facilities so I can not comment on their cleanliness. But the park in general was kept pretty clean. During our stay on Saturday morning they had a pancake breakfast that was very good. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here in June with a group of 10 other rigs (group rate). The hosts were very friendly to us and helpful. The sites are nestled in the trees with some facing the river with a nice view.The clubhouse is accommodating with a pool table and ping pong (for groups, there is a kitchen). The Wi-Fi works very well with high speed unlike some others we have seen. From this park, it's a nice drive down Hwy 9 through the Redwoods to Santa Cruz to see the sights. The Roaring Camp Steam train is only a few miles away. There are miles of walking/hiking trails in Henry Cowell state park. We camped at Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Well run and exceptionally clean park. Towering redwoods with great access to Henry Cowell SP, Santa Cruz etc. Despite clear warnings about poor WiFi we found the WiFi to be exceptional perhaps because our site (45) was directly below an antenna. Great cable TV with lots of unadvertised digital channels. Excellent clubhouse with deck overlooking the river. Lots of kid and adult activities. A pool would be an excellent addition though. We will most definitely return. We camped at Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this campground one night and wish this could have been an extended stay. It is a beautiful campground with a lot of the redwoods in every site. The grounds are well maintained and the showers and bathrooms were extremely nice and clean. We camped at Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
