Lots of trees, rivers, hikes, views, camping, swimming and more. Take a picnic and explore the many stop of points. Watch out for the nature walks led by rangers for a great way to find out more about the forests.

This is a must for travellers in North California and definitely worth a detour. The trees are amazing and it is hard to believe these are real trees. The boys aged 10 and 11 loved to play in the forest!

The redwoods are the trees that no one in the east believed could be real. They are as near to a cathedral as nature can produce. This is an experience that every US citizen should experience. We didn't camp so we can't comment on the state of the campgrounds.

You can't go wrong w/ Giant Redwoods everywhere. Campground was "dry", meaning no hookups. Restrooms were not cleanest; Pay Showers. Level sites. Lots of hiking. Scenery was beautiful.

This is one of the easiest state parks to visit. The walks to see the redwoods are mostly flat and easy. The trees are spectacular, and even on a hot day the groves are cool and comfortable. Don't miss this.

Leaving Eureka, we headed south on 101 to the very aptly named Avenue of the Giants. Following a Tripadvisor review, we first located a campsite at the Albee Creek campground. We got there about 1:30 and there were several campsites still available. We selected site #18 and it cost $35. We are tent campers and found this to be a... More

Humboldt Redwoods is the perfect place for anyone who enjoys a bit of nature. Start your visit by driving through the beautiful Avenue of the Giants. Next, go to the visitor center and pick up a map of hikes and check out the small museum. Two very easy walks are just across the street. Another easy walk is up the... More

Beautiful hiking trails around this park with humungous redwoods to behold. Tight little roads to park your car on in the park and limited parking altogether. Plan on a scary ride into this area and out of it with switchback narrow roads and hairpin turns. Very Enjoyable

Quite a humbling place. A place where the redwoods tower and the trails seem to go on forever. Learned more about it here: http://www.stateparksreview.com/california-state-parks/humboldt-redwoods-state-park/. Muy fantastico!

Loved the park, the rangers and the trails. If you have young children who can't handle the moderate 4+ mile hikes, this is a perfect park! Seeing the sequoia and the redwoods along lush easy to hike trails was fabulous. DO NOT MISS THE ROCKEFELLER FOREST LOOP!! Tough to find, but worth asking for help from a ranger!
