The majestic Portola Redwoods State Park is a lush camping experience offering a peaceful break from busy Silicon Valley.

Portola Redwoods Campground offers 52 family sites, one accessible site, and four walk-in environmental sites. There are also four group campgrounds, which hold a maximum of 50 people. There are hot showers and flushing toilets. Reserve these sites in advance here. 

Dogs are allowed at the campgrounds and on paved roads, but not in the visitor center or on hiking trails. You can purchase firewood from the park office. The campgrounds close for the winter (November - April) so the best time to visit is in the spring and summer. Even in the spring and summer, be weary of cool morning fog and the occasional summer rain. 

Stock up before you arrive - the nearest gas station is in Sky Londa (14 miles away) and the nearest groceries are in Sky Londa and La Honda (9 miles away).
