Roaring Camp Railroads - Review

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 very cool place for kids but adults may really like it as well. It has several old buildings in an old town setting complete with two steam train options; one up the local mountain into the beautiful redwood trees on about an hour round trip ride or a 90 minute ride down to the beach (I did not ride the beach train). The ride up the mountain is filled with insightful commentary about the steam train, the redwoods and the local area which I found very interesting. The train ride isn't expensive but it feels worth it considering the amount of time and the fact that it's a real steam engine and not some kiddie train. There is food (it was ok, not great) but you can picnic with your own food, a general store and a few other buildings. Parking is an additional $10 for the day. The grounds are beautiful in their own right. It is easy to spend a good portion of a day here and it looks like you can hike into the local woods from here as well.

  • Our friends got married here. We we're in the wedding. There is a school house for the bridal party to get ready in. The large barn is decorated so beautifully with lights and a disco ball it has a really romantic feel for weddings. The pictures were perfect with the steam train in the background. The property is very large, allowing for vary large parties and weddings. There are hiking trails, blacksmiths, photo booth, general store, and so much more. Such a cute little place surrounded with such beauty in the redwood trees and Forrest.

  • Nice place and fun riding train up hill with conductor telling about some interesting events and incident you need to to hear yourself. Totally recommended and if you have kids, they will be super excited. Please grab a warm jacket- it was cold in 1st week of April. Have Fun.

  • A gem in the Santa Cruz mountains. I saw nothing but great big smiles on our train ride to the top of the hill and through the big trees. Riding in a real steam powered train is not to be missed. My teenagers had a good time as well!

  • It was an awesome experience. Definitely a must if you have little ones! After the train ride, you can take the trails. You can easily lose track of time.
