Roaring Camp Family Photos

Roaring Camp Family Photos Location

After our exploration of Henry Cowell, mom had the idea of adding Roaring Camp as another backdrop for their family photos since this awesome location is conveniently next door to the redwoods! How perfect of a location?

Since we didn’t plan on Roaring Camp, we were a bit surprised at how busy it was with birthday parties, events, and even Peter Apel, the kid musician, was performing that day. So instead of wandering the town, we walked over to the side where these awesome trains were, which worked great as a backdrop and there weren’t any crowds.

The yellow caboose and open-air train cart added such a wonderful pop to their photos. We somehow managed to time it perfectly (yay) to watch the steam engine go by!

If you ever think about Roaring Camp as a family photos location, I definitely recommend checking out what events are happening that day, and try to time it so you don’t have the crowds waiting to get on the train 🙂


When you’re thinking of where to have your family photos taken, think of places that you love to do with your family. These photos are for you to look back on and feel all the love so have the location be at the place that gives you butterflies, that fills your heart and your memories.
