If you paddle to the sand spit that separates the lagoon from the ocean, you are treated to a pristine beach with picturesque waves. The people working at Kayak Zacs... More

Just when I thought California couldn't get anymore beautiful or interesting, I find this place! Truly stunning, and I love the geological anomalies. But don't take my word for it! Learn more here: http://www.stateparksreview.com/california-state-parks/humboldt-lagoons-state-park/.

One of the few beaches on Northern California's rocky redwood coast. So quiet and serene, this is a chance to truly commune with nature. Not to be missed!

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.
