Jedediah Smith Redwoods Park, established in 1929, was named after the noted fur trapper Jedediah Smith, who visited its location during an 1826 expedition. It is located in the northern part of the U.S. state of California, nine miles east of Crescent City, on U.S. Route 199. The park is one of three State Parks cooperatively managed as part of Redwood National and State Parks.

This park has several hiking trails, and a day use area adjacent to the campground, next to the Smith River. Popular attractions include the Simpson Reed Discovery Trail and Stout Grove. Stout Grove near Howland Hill Road, contains 'Stout Tree', the largest in the stand.

Mill Creek flows through the park and merges with the Smith River near the campground. In the warm season, a seasonal bridge is placed across Mill Creek for easier access to Mill Creek Trail and one end of Hiouchi Trail.
