My husband and I took our 10 year old grandson to camp two nights in PCRSP. We picked the camping spot online (#63) and boy, was it a great one!!! It was very private from the road; it had a tiny trail to walk through to get into the camp space. At night we could hear the creek gently flowing,... More

The Revelation Trail is close to the Visitor center and is .3 miles long. My mother has low vision and really appreciated the ease of using it, and the thought put into it. We went on the Drury Parkway slowly to see all of the enormous redwoods. Helpful volunteers at Visitor center.

Gorgeous forests. Impressively clean restrooms with hot water and showers. I was nervous there would be too many campers around. People were there but everyone was mellow. We hiked and rode mountain bikes through the amazing forest.

The state of California has so many wonderful natural treasures to share with the public, and Prairie Creek is definitely one of those gems. Roosevelt Elk, Fern Canyon, James Irvine Trail were highlights of our time spent here. The campground is not mega-sized nor are the individual family sites estate-sized; however the bathroom and shower facilities are well maintained and... More

Hands down, this is one of the most amazing places I have EVER visited. Some of the biggest redwoods in the world are found at this park. It is truly an awe-inspiring place. And it's free! The trails that we hiked were pretty easy, and there weren't too many people around so it was very peaceful. One thing I thought... More

Although the sigh on Highway-101 says this is a state park, this is also a National Park. It is jointly managed by the state and the federal. At the visitor center, you can get your collection of NP stamps or use your NP pass. Right behind the visitor center is a short circular trail, which let you get close to... More

I'm embarrassed to say that I've been living in Humboldt for 15 years and I just found this place this year. I didn't think there was a trail left that could take my breath away as I am spoiled by constant exposure to the flora and fauna here, but this is awe inspiring. It reminded me, in places, of the...

This is a great camping place. We thought we might see elk in the meadow in front but no such luck. We did see some on Davidson road going to gold bluff beach.

Everyone says the same thing but it really is a beautiful location. The Redwoods are awesome. Be careful about bringing firewood from other states. Ours got confiscated when we entered California. It had some Utah beetles in it. When you enter Del Norte County they stop all cars. Just FYI! The camp ground has no water or electric hook ups... More

We loved all the redwoods we saw but the scenic parkway was especially nice. It was a paved road and you could go at your own speed. The man in the visitor center was especially helpful and their gift shop had a wide selection of books, postcards and gifts.
