Beach walking

Just to walk along the sandbar and listen to the surf is really soothing, Not to mention the sea life viewing. Whales especially!

This national park is breathtaking with its coastal landscape and surrounding forest of magnificent Redwoods. Take a walk among these ancient trees and you will be filled with a sense of awe and wonder. The air is invigorating and the hiking trails are well worth the effort. Help your children to appreciate the earths wonders and how we need to... More

Great place to take the kids. Not as crowded as other St. Park's - the lagoons are amazing to see. Lots to do. Expect fog/wind.

I could spend days here photographing the many moods of the marshes. The are so amazing and kaleidoscopic. Send the rest of the crew off to the red woods and stay here..

Great camping and fishing. It is right next to the ocean so you can fish the lagoon or walk on the beach while camping or having a picnic.

Spent a couple hours here with my 3 year old son, and most of the time we had the entire beach to ourselves. We watched the waves, ran in and out of the waves before they could get us, threw stones into the waves, and generally had a super fun time, just the boys.

Beaches, freshwater lagoons, elk ... just beautiful! Uncrowded, peaceful. Definitely worth a stop (or two!) along your travels in this area.

the humboldt lagoons state park area gets little mentioned in travel books. Maybe that is the reason this strikingly rich visual area of ocean beach, forested hills and fresh water lagoons seem quiet and uncrowded. Awesome to witness only a beach separating the ocean from a fresh water pond. Saw Elk in area right off US 101 while traveling between... More

Highway 101 has many interesting and/or beautiful sights as you drive through Northern California. This is one. I have to admit never having searched for agates or otherwise enjoyed more than the view. I just see it as another reason to drive 101 instead of faster, less interesting I-5. It is worth seeing but not worth the trip by itself.

Humboldt Lagoons SP consists of three lagoons. They are, from south to north -- Big Lagoon, Stone Lagoon and Freshwater Lagoon. I think they are all considered "freshwater", although during big winter storms the ocean does break over the sand strip into Big Lagoon. There is also "Dry Lagoon", which was drained in the early 20th Century, and is marshland... More
