We have been to Humboldt Redwoods State Park several times, with our latest trip being August 2014. This is an excellent state park with a good visitor center. The movie there is quite interesting and an amazing story about the great flood in the area. There is a wonderful nature trail in the park which is worth doing; it is... More

This is one of my favorite places on the earth. We stayed at the Burlington campgrounds (warning, this camp ground has been here forever, the twists and turns are impressive: I wouldn't want to drive this with a huge travel trailer or rv. Our 19 foot was tricky enough). The giant trees seem to soak up light and sound, quietest... More

We drove up the Avenue of Giants on our way up the coast towards Oregon. The Avenue itself was nice but the best way to experience this park is to get out of your car and explore the different groves. We toured the Founder's Grove and the Rockefeller Grove which is located off of Mattole road. The Founder's Grove was... More

wonderful giants. Just knowing this area is the only place on the earth where these trees live and they are more than a thousand years old is heart felt. We appreciate all the efforts to protect these trees and the area and hope they will be here for another thousand years. Its easy to feel the "life" so large and... More

A wonderful place to see the redwoods. Get the Avenue of the Giants Auto Tour Map in the brochure box at either end of the park. There are stops with trails all along the 32 mile drive. Several stops reflect the flooding which has occurred in the area. It is hard to imagine a high water level 35 feet above... More

These trees are amazing! If you haven't been here, make plans now! The Visitor's Center has an extremely knowledgeable staff and the exhibits are very interesting. It wasn't hard to see some of the most amazing trees in just a short hike. We did the nature trail across from the Visitor's Center, the Rockefeller Loop and the Big Tree Loop.... More

This is a great place to see the majestic Redwoods. There are many areas to visit within the park; most every trail is a can't miss. We particularly liked the Rockefeller area. Plan on spending a little time (at least a half-day). You can drive through the area on the Avenue of the Giants, but if you have time, get... More

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
