Beautiful, beautiful park

August 4, 2012
Butano SP is probably one of the most beautiful state parks we've been to. My girlfriend and I are both avid campers and we love camping at this park. The redwoods are beautiful and in some places you can have a nice view of the ocean. The hiking trails are also nice and are looped so you won't have to backtrack. The only complaint I've got is the park doesn't have flush toilets and the campsites are too close together in the sense that if you hear a kid from one site cry, the cry echoes in the entire campground. Also, lots of banana slugs, but they didn't bother me.

We stayed here in a Tent.
