About Roaring Camp Railroads, Santa Cruz

The Roaring Camp and Big Trees Narrow Gauge Railroad is a shot of nostalgia for people who have travelled in steam trains, and even for those who haven’t, it an experience that they will cherish for the rest of their lives. The train runs on a 3-feet narrow gauge railroad and travels a distance of more than 3 miles, even passing through the majestic redwood forest. Though the camp operations began in 1960s, the engines date back to the late 19th century, and were worked upon extensively to bring them back to working condition.

Roaring Camp Railroads, Santa Cruz Reviews

  • A most exhilarating experience This is a gem that is waiting to be discovered by everyone. I arrived 30 minutes earlier to the location and was awestruck by the setting- I literally felt transported back in time. The people were awesome and there was so much going on. Someone was forging a sword the old fashioned way and there was a nice gift shop nearby. The lawns are amazing and gives a great view of the forest nearby. You can even do a quick hike nearby if you have time. The train journey itself was astounding. I felt very relaxed as the train snaked through the Redwoods with its iconic steam trail. Wait until the end and you get the most photographic jets of steam from the engine. Will definitely go again with my family.

  • Amazing place to spend the day outside. A beautiful area amongst the Santa Cruz mountains. You can bring a lunch or grab something to eat at the convenient cafe. Restrooms are available. There are plenty of places to sit, eat, and enjoy the surroundings. There are plenty of shops and demonstrations that are also available. We took the mountain train route which is really awesome. There is also a route that goes to the Santa Cruz boardwalk that I would like to try next time.

  • A breath of fresh air among the world of industrial amusement parks... This camp is located in a tucked away corner of the woods, with a real Western feel. I highly recommend the steam locomotor ride to the top of the mountain, well worth the money if for just the view of the redwoods. Kids activities galore! I highly enjoyed panning for gold, and you get to keep the gold flakes you find, placed in a tiny bottle. My family has been going since I was very little and I have loved it ever since.

  • This is a great place to bring kids and grandparents. I took my mom who has never had a ride on a steam engine before. Also, the redwoods in the park right next door are great! If you come early enough, you can park at the park cheaper than at the railroad, walk the redwoods and then get lunch and train ride at the Roaring Camp. It is worth going every couple years with the kids as they appreciate differently as the get older.

  • Had a wonderful time here with family! Our son is a huge train fanatic and loved every minute. One of my favorite pics of him was taken with an employee there. The ride was fun, but the scenery stole the show--absolutely breathtaking!
