Camp Under the Redwoods at Memorial Park

Originally added by Jake Young

Camp under the redwoods in a park that is only about an hour drive from San Francisco. 

With old growth redwoods and a creek swimming area, Memorial Park is a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area. 

Memorial Park is only a few miles east of the town of Pescadero. To get here, you can either approach from Highway 1 and drive up Pescadero Creek Road or take Highway 84 and turn onto Pescadero Creek Road shortly after the town of La Honda. 

There are two main camping areas in the park: the Azalea Flat and the Sequoia Flat. In total, there are 158 sites that each can accommodate 8 people. Click here to reserve a campsite. There is slight discount to camping in the winter season and it is usually easier to obtain a spot. 

Make sure to visit the quaint town of Pescadero before or after your visit to taste some of their world famous Garlic Artichoke Bread.
