Millions of years ago, huge redwood forests covered most of the northern hemisphere. Now, they are only found on the coast from central California through southern Oregon. Clocking in at 17,000 acres, this park is the largest remaining contiguous old-growth forest of coast redwoods. This is definitely a do-not-miss California camping spot.
If you’re just passing through, you can literally hop off 101, drive through the park along the Avenue of the Giants, and then hop back on. If you can stay a while, there are over 100 miles of trails to hike, bike, or explore on horseback. Tons of short trails leave right from the Avenue. For longer hikes try the Bull Creek Flat area. After a day on the trails, cool off or go fishing in the south fork of the Eel River.
There are three state park campgrounds that cost $35/night. Burlington Campground is right next to the visitor center and the only year-round campground. Hidden Springs is the park's largest campground but we like the tiny Albee Creek Campground for its remote location. It’s possible to hike Bull Creek Flats starting right from Albee Creek. Sites go fast in the summer but there are good Hipcamping options nearby.
