Sunset Magazine Says …

“On the far Northern California coast, Jed Smith, as it’s known, packs a lot of wild into 10,000 acres. It’s got an undammed, free-flowing river, a trackless core that invites childlike exploration, and seven percent of the entire world’s old-growth redwoods. Readers love experiencing this wildness based in one of four cabins operated by the park.”
