Redwoods 2002

FIRE NEWS 8/6 The (large) Sour Biscuit fire at the California border is uncontained at the north (in Oregon). The south side (zone 2) is 40% contained. Highway 199 was opened Saturday night to one lane of traffic after being closed due to the Shelley Creek fire. This fire is 100% "contained" at this time. For highway 199 status, call 1-800-427-7623. We're watching.......Daily Triplicate for fire reports

Previous years

Well, here is the Redwoods 2002 plan as I currently know it (last revised 8/6 FINAL ):
We have two camp sites reserved from August 8th through August 18th at Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park. We have a 3rd site for Saturday night and are hoping for a cancellation or whatever for Sunday night.
Please keep me apprised of arrivals/departures at The "reason" for this is we supposedly can only have 16 people at a time in the two campsites (but WE won't count'em....) Also, two vehicles per site so that may be the tough one.... Right now, we have a trailer/motorhome and two tents in each site so it's gonna be tight the first weekend (when everyone will be there).
We are researching where to park extra vehicles......During the day, a day use pass is $2.00. The ranger said that we could park overnight at the visitor center. See Campsites/parking for my best guess so far.
Patti has "meal plans"....see the link at the bottom of the page.
