“Founder's tree and Dyerville giant are a must-see in the Park.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

The drive though the state park forest is a must-see activity when in the area. It isn't just the road but there are many stops off to see more. One of these is the The Founder's tree and Dyerville giant. There is a short loop trail around these trees and what you'll see will amaze you. Parking is nearby and everything is easily accessible.

“Avenue of the Giants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

We traveled the 32 mile Auto Tour Hwy 101 exit #645 at Phillipsville through Drury-Chaney Grove in Pepperwood. Scenic route with forests, meadows, hiking, biking and riding trails. Prepare to enjoy a meeting of the soul when you enter the quiet serenity under the canopy from above.

“Albee Creek Campground space #16 - no privacy anywhere but still fun”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.

“Spectacular!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

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.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

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.
