Sleep Among the Giants Camping in Redwoods National Park
You can drive among giants, hike among giants, and you can even sleep among giants in Redwoods National Park. Next to a big open meadow where wild elk roam is the Elk Prairie Campground located in Redwoods National Park. You can either choose a camping spot out in the open near the meadow, or camp in the forest under giant redwoods. I chose the forest for my night’s sleep. It had a real mystical feel to it to sleep under the trees in my little van. Arrive before 5PM to have a chance at getting a spot in the campground as it fills up fast after that. In the summer months reservations are recommended as it fills up fast! There’s a shared bathroom and each campsite had picnic tables, and fire pits.
