Reviewed August 2, 2013

We stayed at Albee Creek in Humboldt Redwoods State Park in July 2013. I definitely found Albee Creek to be somewhat of an oddity. It could be because the name continuously reminded of a very odd character in the show Big Love. Anyway, after having stayed in the northern redwoods at Jedediah Smith and Del Norte campgrounds, Albee was unique in that while there were very large trees in the campground, there was no other understory vegetation. You could literally see everything your neighbors were doing, and vice versa. Space #16 and those on the northern side of Albee are all on a slope. Certainly they flattened out areas for tents and tables, etc., but someone was always sliding a bit. However, the southern side of the campground is down on the flat meadow, where you can watch the deer graze, as well as bear grabbing apples from the trees. This was a very fun part of staying at Albee. It seems to me that space #25 is the best, because it is down on the edge of the meadow near the deer. It has even fewer trees so again, there is no privacy, but there is more natural light, which is lacking in general around all these massive trees.

Go to the visitors center first and then plan your hikes. Each tree is more spectacular than the next. We did a 4 hour 7.5 mile hike which is a bit long - better to do 2-3 half hour hikes in order to see nature at its best.

One of the most beautiful places in the world. The GIANTS are amazing! It is really inspiring being in touch with such beautiful trees, feeling the wonderful environment. Don’t forget your cameras and extra batteries, so that you do not lose one singles scene.

My husband has been wanting to visit the Redwoods for years and we finally went-we LOVED it!! There is so much to do and so many little places to see. There are so many hikes and they vary for levels of abilities and length. There's basically something for everyone, except if you don't like the outdoors!

Driving through the Avenue of Giants is a humbling experience, to see and marvel at these ancient giants. We camped at Humboldt, hiked and biked with our four kids - we had a wonderful time, walking through the mighty trees and trying to extend all of our arms together to hug a tree - even with six of us, we couldn't encircle the circumference! Beautiful and breathtaking and magical - a truly memorable experience. And we saw herds of magnificent Roosevelt elk, grazing calmly in the middle of the campground and in the forest.
