This California State Park is representative of the North Coast and all it's diversity of nature. There is an easy drive through the "Avenue of The Giants" which can be accessed from various freeway junctions along State Highway 101. Don't miss a chance to stop by Burlington Headquarters and Campground Visitors Center. They have a wonderful little natural history museum... More

This for us really was the perfect way to get acquainted with the sheer size of redwood trees on the west coast. We had a great time driving for miles and miles meandering through giant redwood trees. You start to feel at home and then 'normal' trees seem just all a bit teeny tiny. Loved it!

These amazing trees are truly inspiring and relaxing at the same time. The sheer wonder of their immense size intertwined with grasping the passing of time, together to try to imagine the creation of these trees is mind boggling! One is very humbled when walking amidst these giant sentinels. These coastal Redwoods are some of the widest and tallest trees... More

I drove through this massive park on the way from Mattole Beach on the coast due west from this park's entrance. It was a scary adventure as it is very remote and we drove through the park at night with lots of wildlife darting across the road such as spotted skunks, owls and herds of deer. It was a lifetime...

We walked a few of the shorter informational trails, and the trees were stupendously large. Makes you stand there staring, just trying to comprehend how old these giants are, how many tragedies they've been through, how many comrades they've lost through the years. Pretty intense.

We stayed at the campsite here in October. We reserved a spot and easily found it. When we arrived the ranger was no longer around so we had to go to a nearby campground and buy firewood. The spots are large, the trees are beautiful and there are plenty of hiking trails to explore. The facilities were awesome! We will... More

There are not sufficient words to describe the redwoods. The park is fantastic. The visitor center is great. Go there and get some good maps of the trails (the booklet if good, but also get the big trail map that is about $2,50 - so worth it). Also, be aware that they take the bridges down in late September for... More

On a recent trip down the Redwoods Hwy and through the Avenue of the Giants, I wondered WHERE are the REALLY big Trees? . After doing some research I came up with this list of Eight not to be missed Big Trees to see in the California Redwoods Parks 1. Big Tree -  An easy access tree located in north of... More

We spent two days hiking here. Start at the Visitors Center near the Burlington campground to get oriented. While there are lots of online resources, the folks at the VC can really help. We hiked the Bull Creek Trail north, Rockefeller Loop, Big Trees Trail, French Grieg Trail and Founders Trail. All are excellent and different in their own way.... More

There are a lot of reasons to visit the Redwoods and to stop at Humboldt Redwoods State Park, but I'll confine my comments today to JUST the Burlington Campground. We spent a night here, en route to other places, and it was totally enchanting. Pulling our 32' RV into this older campground requires concentration, but getting settled in among the... More
