Book a Birthday Party at Roaring Camp Railroads

Roaring Camp is a re-creation of a 1880s logging town complete with small-yet-powerful steam locomotives, a general store, depot, opera house, covered bridge, one-room schoolhouse, and engine houses. Antique cabooses double as food stands and offices; a chuckwagon barbecue and picnic grounds spread outward from the Main Street. Virgin Redwoods, dramatic river gorges, mountains, lush canyons, open meadows, and pine and oak forests characterize the 150 acres that surround Roaring Camp. You can customize your birthday party with entertainment options such as face painting, gold panning, candle making, a bounce house and more. Roaring Camp is located six miles north of Santa Cruz off State Route 17 at Mt. Hermon Road.
