The park protects the coastal redwood forest of California. The area is home to the enormous coastal redwood as well as hundreds of species of animals and fish. Chinook Salmon choose the streams and rivers of this park as the annual breeding ground and Roosevelt Elk graze on the large grassy prairies.
This is a coastal area and so there is a lot of precipitation year round. The temperature hold steadys between 40 and 60 degrees but make sure you are prepared for rain.
Camping in Redwood National Park is easy with three established campgrounds in Redwood Forest itself and one more on the coast. These campgrounds serve as excellent bases of operation for day hikes and fishing trips.
