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.

  • We enjoy our ride. ... The place was fantastic. ... The redwood tree is fascinating and it's history. ... The food though was just okay but the ambiance was good. ... it's like having a picnic. ... The steam train was lovely and fun. ... We enjoy our day. ...

  • Great place for the family. Riding the steam train is a must. An hour long ride trip upa little hill under the beautiful canopy of California Redwood trees thousands of years old. Insider tip, sit in the open air cars. You may start in the sun, but the towering trees provide a lovely shade once you get moving.

  • The grounds were very pleasant and welcoming. The option to ride the train inside or out was fun; especially for the kids. The view of the Redwoods was phenomenal. The 60 minute break at Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk was an entertaining contrast. The ticket-taker/train host was extremely nice and informative, but we would have liked a few more moments of silence from him so the sounds in our videos would have been "train noises" instead of bits and pieces of narration. All in all, we had a wonderful morning with you. Thank you!!

  • What can't I say about this place it's a wonderful family atmosphere put you back at the time that it set at. Family-oriented fun live music barbecues Etc. I would highly recommend this for all families that are traveling through Santa Cruz or families that live by. The Roaring steam train ride was an awesome adventure for our family my son loved it very much. I love how they involve a bank heist in the middle of the ride and got us really involved. Also seen the blacksmith and the local ladies doing the knitting was awesome for my son and family see and learn.

  • This is such a wonderful place. Staff is incredibly nice and friendly. The conductors are knowledgable and they provide a wealth of knowledge about the great outdoors, and trees. We attended one of the dinner evening events and had a blast. They served delicious food and the live music was great. Will definitely come back and bring more friends. Taking a train through the redwoods is something magical, break-taking, and relaxing.
