Burlington Campground next to the Visitors Center. The campground is located between hwy 101 and Avenue of the Giants so no matter where you're camped, you'll get road noise. That being said, camping in a grove of redwoods is mystical. They did a good job of shielding sites with giant stumps and trees since there is no ground shrubs or sun because of the dense canopy. Bathrooms are new and 50 cents for 5 minutes for a hot shower is a luxury after hiking through the beautiful trails. There is AT&T cell coverage but not enough bars for Internet. Nice kitchen washing station and plenty of potable water faucets. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park on the Avenue of the Giants. Campsite is right in the trees with lots of lush vegetation. There are hiking trails that lead to a cool, relaxing riverfront beach and way beyond for the serious hikers. Great campsite for children. We wished we could've stayed here longer! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for three nights in site 56. Fit our 34' TT and truck just fine, slipped in between the tall trees. No hookups and no satellite, but in the summer there are ranger programs and a swimming hole in the Eel River. The kids loved climbing on the redwood stumps and riding around the camp. The showers were clean and everyone was respectful of quiet hours. A great home base for visiting the area if you can do without hookups. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We actually found the campground itself to be very enjoyable and very scenic. The low rating is due to the horrible 5 miles of road one must take into the park from the highway. I suppose it largely depends on the rig (a 4WD truck camper would likely fare better than our 31 Class C) but our overall experience here was a poor one. Even at a slow crawl the road was extremely rough. I would not camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here at the Humboldt Redwoods State Park, Albee Creek in a 33-foot motorhome. This should be tent camping only as there are only a few sites that will accommodate a motorhome and they are not level. The access road is a 5+ mile, one lane, full of pot-holes, blind curves and redwood trees that our motorhome mirrors only missed by inches. We would not stay here again.

An incredible state park in the middle of the California State Coast Redwood tree forest. Sites are limited to about 33' in length due to the abundance of old growth redwood trees. Many are over 100' tall. Many other forested places to visit nearby. This park is also next door to the visitor center. Forget satellite reception, the trees are so heavy it's impossible. But somehow I never had time to be bored. Picnic tables and fire pits at each site. All are roomy, even though the park roads are "snug". A highly recommended state park. However take note, NO dump station is available at this park. The restroom and shower facilities are immaculate however. We camped here in a Motorhome.
