This is an amazing place and the park is really beautiful - the visitor's center is very nice, the drive through the Avenue of the Giants is awesome, and there is such a special feeling when you are surrounded by these gigantic trees, it's indescribable. Even if you just walk 100 yards along one of the well-kept paths, you'll feel... More

Get here by driving the Avenue of Giants. Stayed in a tent site in hidden springs. Clean and plenty of space to pitch a tent. Buy wood from ranger at entry way for $8 for eight pieces of wood. It will last you for two nights unless you like roaring fires. Showers cost 50 cents minimal. I found I didn't... More

I am not a huge outdoors enthusiast, especially when there could be bears or cougars nearby. This drive was perfect though, we got to see ALOT all from the car. The visitors centre is fantatic, really well done, especially for children. Mine were mesmorized and could have stayed all day there. We camped one night at Hidden Springs. It was... More

What an amazing beautiful place the Redwoods are - so spectacular! Drive thru the Avenue of the Giants - breathtaking!! We must do all we can to conserve these forests for future generations to view. Drive through the the 3000 year old tree (for a fee)

Drive the Avenue of the Giants, but DO NOT just drive through the park. Pull off the highway and walk into the woods. Look up, look down, and look around at the magical redwoods ecosystem. Take time to listen too. Look for the 1964 flood markers, and imagine the devastation. For variety, drive out Mattole Rd to walk in the... More

Rode my motorcycle up to Oregon and met up with friends and then we rode all the way down the 101. Absolutely beautiful country and a breathtaking ride. I highly recommend this trip for anyone be it in a car or on a bike. Take a jacket though. It gets chilly.

Have seen redwoods in California on previous trips, but never went north to the actual state park. We'd heard a lot about them over the years and decided to plan part of a vacation around visiting Humboldt. Was glad we did! The drive up the Avenue of the Giants was as spectacular as described: one beautiful scene after another, and... More

I spent a few hours hiking in the park with my young son and we had a lot of fun. To help keep my son engaged and entertained during our hike, I found an interesting iPhone app called "Git Your Goat." It lets you create a lot of goats along the trail and when you reach the spot with a... More

When I was a child, I saw pictures of the giant redwood trees. We have traveled extensively but had never visited in Oregon or California. We had four states left on our "bucket list", so when this opportunity came up-we signed up. It was a Great Escapes/Mayflower Tour and we were joined by area people and several from other states....

We stayed at the Hidden Springs Campground in Myers Flat, site 21. We had a tent trailer and were able to get it into the pad and park our minivan sideways. It was a tight fit as most of these sites are small. All the sites are very private and you may be able to hear your neighbors but you... More
