This place is so cute! The resort is nestled in the trees and I had cabin 8 which has a view/wonderful sound of the river from a large porch. It was exactly what I wanted for my solo getaway. I thought the cabin charming (even better than the pictures), spacious and super clean.

We all LOVED this place! We stayed in cabin #3 which is away from the others a bit. The cabins back up to a creek which backs up to Henry Cowell State Park, so it is as though you are staying in your own private park! The cabin is fully furnished with all of the comforts of home.

Our family reunion consisted of 2 grandparents, 5 grown kids, 11 grandkids aged 8 to 19 and others. The cabins and redwood grove site were superb, and you really can hear the San Lorenzo River tumbling through rapids a few yards from any of the cabins. The cabins are very neat,

Really enjoyed our night at the Fern River Resort Motel, stayed in a small cabin. We were able to bring our own food, grill burgers and enjoy our meal at the cabin. The cabin was very clean and comfortable.

Not as cute as the photos. Some cleanliness issues. If you’re used to roughing it then this will probably be more acceptable. Not my cup of tea. I felt it lacked charm. A few bugs, a few hairs and no curtains over the door window which makes it hard to sleep.

Can you walk to Redwoods RV Resort
Is it possible to hike/walk into Henry Cowell Park from Fern River Resort? Thank you.
Yes you could hike from the Resort to Henry Cowell Park. Once at the Park there a # of hiking trails as well. I can only give you the directions provided which is still a nice walk. You could also explore any trail area you come across once you make the turn towards the park. I hope this helps but this is the directions for hiking to the park. 20 min (1.0 mi) via Hwy 9 and N Big Trees Park Rd Directions Fern River Resort Head west on Hwy 9 toward Macarthur Rd 0.5 mi Turn right onto N Big Trees Park Rd 0.5 mi Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park Ranger Office and Entrance Station, 101 North Big Trees Park Road, Felton, CA 95018

it doesn't look like you are answering the questions your quests are asking? Am I looking in the wrong place? Hope you answer mine about the service dogs. I am sure others would like to know as well.
Sorry Trip Advisor emails were going to our spam folder! ADA Service dogs with paperwork are welcome.

"We loved #3 as it was away from the others."
"Bring food to grill out, each cabin has it's own outdoor grill."
"Cabin 9 is right on the river."
"4 and 8 although all are good. 4 and 8 have the best river views, according to the staff."
"#3 & #4 seem very private and overlook the river."
