Hey, I'm getting a bit of a head start on my 2020 planning. I want to visit Redwood National Park for a few days...I'd love to stay in the park but none of the sites in the parks have any hookups. So, I'm hoping to get some suggestions on some nice campgrounds in the area that offer hookups but are still among the redwoods. I'm not interested at all in the parking lot style rv parks and I'm not too picky on location. I've come across Emerald Forest Cabins & RV Park and it looks decent. Also, the KOA in Crescent City seems to have some sites in the trees. Any others suggestions? Thanks!

Ancient Redwoods rv park in Redcrest right on the Avenue of the Giants is our favorite. Full hookups and close to all the parks and things to see.

We stayed at the Sequoia RV Ranch, Three Rivers, CA, a couple of years ago. Just outside the park entrance and right on a river. Very nice experience.

The OP is asking about Redwood National Park, NOT Sequoia National Park.
They are on opposing sides of the state and about 600 miles apart.

We stayed at the Crescent City KOA two years ago. The campground was about 15 minutes from Redwoods National Park. It wasn't anything special, but it was certainly fine for a exploration base. Nice enough laundry room and the staff was polite.

Have stayed at KOA but we stayed at Redwood Meadows RV Resort (formerly Hiouchi RV Resort) last year and like it better

X2 I'm there today. No cell service and they provide limited free internet. ie Limited because the streamers made is unusable. I did get a very limited connection with my cell booster but don't plan on this.

Crescent city is 120 miles and to far IMHO. Eureka is about 35 miles.

Advice: DO NOT plan on driving a rig on the Avenue of the Giants. Not only is the road very narrow but the redwoods extend straight up at the very edge of the road and they show the scars of many RVs. But not to bad to reach the above CG.

We like Kamp Klamath -- not a parking lot, for sure. Very quiet, near the ocean. Great BBQ and music every Saturday night. But the park is kind of funky -- not slick at all. See the reviews on rvparkreviews -- not everyone likes it. The bathrooms are not great.
