About Redwood Adventures


At one time, Redwood Adventures Vacation Village was a village for people in the logging industry, before the groves of ancient giants were recognized as a national treasure. We’ve given this logging village a second lease on life as part of our vision to bring the next great National Park Lodge to Redwood National and State Parks. A few families living in the area have dedicated themselves to the cause of sharing one of the most beautiful places on earth with the rest of the planet, and we hope you’ll join us soon.

Whether you’re looking for a week-long wilderness excursion or an hour-long orientation to our area, we have great tours available for every type of enthusiast and newcomer to the Redwood National and State Parks as well as the many great attractions available all around Humboldt County and the Pacific Northwest.
