Butano State Park was established in 1957 to protect the coastal redwoods of California from logging. Today's visitors will find a quiet canyon full of towering second-and third-growth-redwood trees, babbling streams, and more. The park features 40 miles of canyon and upland hiking trails that wind through over 4,000 acres. Patches of oak forest, wet riparian, and sunny chaparral ecosystems are scattered throughout. Hikers can spot woodpeckers, newts, and flowering calypso orchids in springtime among the various wildlife and plants in the park. The park has 21 drive-in campsites, 18 walk-in campsites and a backcountry trail camp with eight campsites hidden among the redwoods. Restrooms are provided on the main campground with running water. In both the main campground and the day-use areas, drinking water is available at the park. There's no shower. During the summer, guided nature walks and campfire weekend programs are offered.
