Milwaukee too redwood forest in CA.

Planning a round trip 2 weeks from Milwaukee wi. Too the redwood forest in California. Any suggestions for route, campgrounds or sites. Would like to get mt. Rushmore in and stick to the northern us. We will be making a stop in Denver on our way back. Anyone done this trip? Mid July will be the timing. Should I bring a toad or would it be better just to rent a car when we get to our destinations? Anywhere we should stay a few days?

Last family trip before both kids go to college in August.

Albee creek campground is great but I don't know the max size of rv allowed. Drive the Mattole road from near the campground to Ferndale. Stop at the end of Lighthouse road for a secluded beautiful beach!

twinlaker:

Are you talking "2 weeks" for the entire trip or just out to the redwoods?? If it's round trip in 2 weeks, that's ALOT of road time which, at least to us, doesn't sound like much fun for a "Last family trip ......" Are ya open to suggestions??

I would do Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons around Jackson Hole instead. The scenery is spectacular, and tons of wildlife such as bear, elk, moose, wolf, antelope, grizzlies, herds of buffalo etc. ... All of which you won't see in the redwoods (maybe a little black bear) and much less yahoos. Also, great fly fishing in the area. We were in Yellowstone in summer 2008 when gas was $5, the campgrounds were still full, but it just didn't seem crowded. On the day hikes we did in Yellowstone there was barely ANYONE on the trails.
Have fun!!!
