|Humbolt Park Redwood Information
Inn of the Beachcomber Gold Beach Oregon
This page about the redwoods and Humbolt State Parks is for the guests of the Inn of the Beachcomber and those of you that found it in cyber space. We are 53 miles from the Redwood National Parks headquarters in Crescent City, California and all that the coastal redwoods have to offer. The Humboldt Redwoods State Park is about an hour south of Eureka. The best site as far as info is the shannontech.com site which has a lot of pictures of the National Park, redwoods, and the coastline. He has taken the time to provide a lot of useful info as well as his cool photography.
Beachfront Lodging Gold Beach
Eureka is a larger city, has a state university and is in the middle of the national park redwood complex, and close to Humboldt Redwoods State Park. There aren’t really many lodging choices in the redwood park complex. Eureka, California is the largest city in the complex and it has no oceanfront lodging. This makes Gold Beach with its 5 beachfront properties a logical stop-off for exploring the tallest trees in the world.
