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

We camped there for two days, which was the perfect amount of time. The visitor center is a must stop to get key info on the hikes and sights that are available. i was surprised that mosquitoes were at the campground, so remember the mosquito spray.

Lots and lots of redwood groves are the best reason to visit this park. Lots of options for things to do. There is a visitor's drive, campsites you drive into as well as back country camps, hikes, and swimming holes. There are some historical sites and the towns nearby are kitschy. What makes this place really special is the gigantic... More

My prior trips to see the Redwoods have been mostly based around Crescent City and a bit of driving on Avenue of the Giants. However, this trip I spent a little more time in the Humboldt park, and I have to say it's an absolutely beautiful and breathtaking place to see the trees. In the future I plan on spending... More

This park experience should be mandatory for everyone especially those who think trees are just lumber. This forrest in a national treasure that will take your breath away. You almost expected to see dinosaurs. Don't just pass through, give yourself at least an hour to get lost on a trial or if time permits spend the night.

No, we did not camp with Big Foot, nor did he visit our site, but we did camp amongst the giant Coastal Redwoods in Humboldt Redwoods State Park and had an awesome time exploring the area during our recent 3 night stay in the forest. Williams Campground was perfect for our group camping experience (with clean bathrooms as a bonus... More

It was a great drive through the park. My kids loved it. We stopped many times to get out the car and look around. It was a great day. And an amazing place. Anyone who can should do this.

There is no admission booth or gate. You can drive through the Avenue of the Giants and the state park for free. The visitor center has many informative displays.

Words like majestic, impressive and massive really can't fully describe this wonderful place. One of natures unique creations stand tall along the northern California coast are these giant Coast Redwoods. The 32 mile long Avenue of The Giants gives you a chance to drive into the shadows of the rain forest itself. However, don't just drive through. You need to... More
