This is our third stay here and it's the only park we'll ever stay at to visit the Avenue of the Giants. Great service, easy access, nice, nice owners, terrific gift shop and right among the Redwoods. We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very good park to see the Redwoods from as it is located on the main highway in the park. Office staff was great and very helpful. We could get Direct TV from our dish. My ATT phone did not have a signal but their inter net worked fine from our site. All hook ups worked great and were in a very good spot. Only reason they didn't get a 10 was the sites were not long enough to park our coach and toad behind each other but owner told me to park on the grass beside the coach. Each site has a grass lawn between sites and where wide enough for slides and still didn't feel like you were parked on top of each other. We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

Big rig friendly. Great location to visit redwood sights as well as Eureka and Ferndale. Direct TV, and WiFi works well, cell phones don't. No off leash dog park but lots of grassy spaces to walk them. Staff is very friendly. We were there late September mid week and it was pretty full each night. Easily the best big rig option closest to redwoods. We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park situated in the Redwoods. The park itself is open and we were able to use the satellite dish. The sites are relatively wide (we have slides on both sides) and grassy with gravel drives. Staff is very good and helpful. The only drawback here is the phone service is bad. They have a Verizon hotspot you can use if you go stand near it. They have wifi but i did not use it. We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great park right on ave of the giants. Quiet, clean, paved, hook ups in right location and good. Easy in and out with the largest rig. Tell them you have satellite and they will book you in the right spot. Love it here. We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great road cycling on the Ave of the Giants. Cars and trucks very respectful north of Meyers Flat (17 miles away). Not so much south of there. We rode 5 days straight without issues.

We spent six days here exploring the different areas of the Beautiful park and surrounding areas. The wifi worked great however the cell phone coverage in the park was non existent unless you went by the store/gift shop. They do have a cell phone booster in there park but for us, it didn't work that well. Other than that minor glitch, the park and personnel are great. We would stay there again.

We have stayed here several times. We think it is the best park in the area. The spaces are not large but ok for a night or two. You need to ask for a site with satellite availability to receive a signal. A row of large trees blocks the view to the south. Verizon does not work here. For the most part the park is clean and neat. This time the two garbage containers were overflowing but that can happen occasionally. We will stay here again.

This is in the Redwood Forest. Take one or more tours through the forest. We took a day trip to Cape Mendecino and Ferndale which we thought was very interesting. See the Forest Visitors Center south of here. Drive the length of the Avenue of the Giants.

The park is extremely well cared for. Restrooms and showers were very clean. Large pull=through sites and some back-in sites along one side of park. All sites are paved with a lawn area between. A fire ring and round plastic table are provided at each site. You will need your own chairs. The sites have a clean well marked power pedestal and sewer and water hookups. I thought it was nice that each site had two sewer dumps. one in the middle and one toward the rear of site. Satellite was not a problem, but due to trees this service requires that you are in one of the pull-through sites. They did ask at check-in if this was important. Cell service and WiFi are limited. There are two hot spots where my US Cellular worked OK, but not at our site. There are no playgrounds, pools or hot tubs. So the kids may become bored easily. We will be back, a beautiful park just to unwind and relax. We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The redwoods are beautiful and worth the extra effort to drive a few miles to see. The park has redwoods including the "Immortal Tree" within walking distance. But most other redwood groves will require a vehicle. Ferndale is about 20 minutes away and a nice place to visit and walk around. Eureka is about 30 minutes away. The gift shop has a great selection of redwood souvenirs and art work.

Wonderful. It was clean, quiet and just the right size. There's no redwoods in the park but plenty outside it. The owner was very pleasant and cooperative. We just really enjoyed the big spaces and quiet. We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice clean park on the middle of the Redwoods. Cement pad with a grassy area in between sites. Nice gift shop with local art, sculptures, and furniture. Sites were not shaded and had a fire pit and a plastic table. OTA Tv was non existent. No cell service unless you stood under their cell boost in the park or in the shop. Was a great place for a base to explore the Humboldt area. We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

Seems to be a newer park...adequate space between rigs...cell service was usable if you went to the tables where they have a booster. Park is surrounded by redwood trees, stream outside the park by the store. Concrete pads, good location for exploring the area. We shall stay here again in our motorhome.

Small, quiet, serene and superb. Oh my what a lovely park this is! Right in the middle of the giant redwoods. No cell service, nice, (only if you have Verizon do they accommodate a cell booster) Front office is outstanding with great local knowledge they're willing to share.

We stayed 32 days at this beautiful park. Park is 8 years old. Roads and RV pads are asphalt with huge grass areas between the RVs. Cleanest restrooms & laundry room west of Mississippi. Only park in Eureka area with monthly rates ($645), less than $750 or $995 other parks wanted. I would have given park a "10" but no phone service at RV sites; but has two areas in the park that Verizon phones work. It was enjoyable since grown kids couldn't call unless we called them. We would stay here again without question. When tree (outside of park) fell and took out electricity in the area for more than 8 hours the owner stayed at the park until electricity was restored. He kept us informed throughout that time as to when PG&E said the power would be back on. Owner and staff bent over backwards to assist us. They even hand delivered our UPS packages to us during our stay.

The RV park is in a large meadow that is surrounded by 100 to 200 foot redwood trees. Park has more than 50 sites. If you're looking for a quiet RV park, THIS IS IT. We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

Right on the Avenue of the Giants. Great little cafe/restaurant next to the Post Office in the town of Red Crest. Park is about 1.5 miles away. Several redwood gift shops in the town. Very quiet town.

This was such a nice experience. The RV park is small, with wide sites and grass between sites. You check in at the gift shop and choose your own site. We were able to get WiFi and satellite TV but no AT&T cell service. Dog enjoyed walking around the park but no walks directly from there. This was great for one night but need a toad if you want to do anything outside of staying at the RV park. We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

A newer park. A clearing in the redwoods. Sites are decent size pull thrus with plastic table and fire ring. No cable. Wifi was decent but I was told it gets a bit slow when the park is full in the summer. We enjoyed the park and the location and ease of entry/exit are great. I would definitely return if traveling through this area again. We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
