Porterville, California

Camp at Redwood Meadow

Originally added by Brian Wisniach

Small, secluded, and across the street from some of the biggest trees you will ever see. Redwood Meadow provides a well-maintained spot away from the crowds.

Situated right across the street from the stunning Trail of 100 Giants, Redwood Meadows features 13 spacious campsites adjacent to a picturesque meadow. There are picnic tables, fire rings, and six yurt sites available for those who wish to bring some of the great indoors outside. 

Pit toilets are located at the entrance to the campground and are well-maintained. There is also a "gift shop" style yurt on site to pick up a souvenir or some small last-minute supplies. The grounds are pet friendly (on-leash) and allow up to six people per site. Be advised: no running water is provided, although there is a small stream near the meadow. 

The small (I'm talking population: 16) town of Ponderosa is about a 20 minute drive south where you can find a general store and restaurant. 

Redwood Meadows provides a quiet getaway perfect for families or couples looking for some tranquil nature therapy.
