Snowbirds & RV Travelers - - Contents -

Gi­ant Red­woods RV Park on the Eel River in Hum­boldt County of north­ern Cal­i­for­nia is your des­ti­na­tion re­sort in the mild coastal cli­mate that nour­ishes the magnificent red­woods. Whether you en­joy one of the many ac­tiv­i­ties like swim­ming, fish­ing, kayak­ing on the Eel River, strolling among the ma­jes­tic red­woods, driv­ing down the Avenue of the Gi­ants, or just peace­ful camp­ing, this park pro­vides a wel­com­ing en­vi­ron­ment with plenty of year-round ac­tiv­i­ties at your fin­ger­tips.

Cam­pers at the park have ex­clu­sive ac­cess to the best swim­ming hole around! Want to catch some salmon and steel­head? They run in the Eel River in the fall. Or just take your kayak out and see the osprey and deer at the river’s edge, be­cause it is a beau­ti­ful river, the third largest in Cal­i­for­nia, carv­ing deep canyons down great moun­tains, through flat val­leys, and past ma­jes­tic and an­cient red­wood forests. There are nu­mer­ous hik­ing trails from the park and off the Avenue of the Gi­ants fol­low­ing the river and up into the moun­tains. For a less stren­u­ous hike, try the ad­ja­cent Hum­boldt Red­woods State Park, which has the largest re­main­ing stand of vir­gin red­woods in the world with paths of soft for­est floor, eye-high ferns, and red­woods taller than you can see. Don’t strain your neck gawk­ing but do im­merse your­self in their unique spirit. There is noth­ing else like it.

There are sev­eral lo­cal winer­ies to wel­come you in­clud­ing River­bend Cel­lars within walk­ing dis­tance from the park. En­joy a lit­tle an­tiquing and like the Vic­to­rian age? Up the river

near the coast is the charm­ing town of Fern­dale, which Forbes named “one of Amer­ica’s pret­ti­est towns.” Take it all in then drive just five min­utes to Cal­i­for­nia’s magnificent, un­de­vel­oped Lost Coast, one way in, and one way out.

The spec­tac­u­lar con­flu­ence of land and sea along the Lost Coast will as­tound you. You can ex­plore the area hik­ing, fish­ing, hunt­ing and sight­see­ing in the moun­tain streams, forests and trails, some are des­ig­nated as Na­tional Recre­ation Trails.

Then come back to your base camp where there’s abun­dant sun­shine, pri­vacy, and ex­pe­ri­enced, friendly on-site camp hosts whose goal is to make you feel like a guest at the Ritz.

Gi­ant Red­woods RV Park of­fers the fea­tures you want: pic­nic ta­bles & fire pits for every site, resur­faced & graded park grounds, coin-op­er­ated laun­dry, vol­ley­ball, teth­erball & horse­shoe pits, up­graded free ca­ble and Wi-Fi park-wide, up­graded elec­tri­cal boxes/ pan­els to 50A, play­ground for kids, and a dog park for Fido. We love dogs! And of course, there are over 300 red­wood trees on our re­cently re-land­scaped prop­erty. This is your des­ti­na­tion re­sort, snow­birds!
