Camp Under the Redwoods at Memorial Park

Rate this Adventure San Francisco Memorial Park

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.

From the parking lot, take the connector trail towards the Peters Creek Trail for 0.4 miles. As you descend into a small valley, notice the sound of running water that appears.

Hike the Tabor Nature Trail

San Francisco / Taber Nature Trail, Standish-Hickey State Recreation Area

Signs at the trail head for the Tabor Trail state it is 1.1 miles long. That is much shorter than the actual 1.8 miles my GPS put it at. The trail sign also claims it is wheelchair accessible.
