LINKS TO NEARBY STATE PARKS
Humboldt Redwoods State Park is located in the Eel River Sector of the North Coast Redwoods District. Other State Parks in the Eel River Sector include the small and quiet Grizzly Creek State Park, located east on State Route 36, and Fort Humboldt State Historical Park, located 45 miles north of Humboldt Redwoods in Eureka.
Further to the south nearby State Parks with complete facilities along the Highway 101 corridor include Benbow Lake State Recreation Area, where a summer dam produces a tranquil lake for boating and swimming, Richardson Grove State Park, and Standish-Hickey State Recreation Area. For a true wilderness experience on California's rugged "Lost Coast" check out Sinkyone Wilderness State Park.
Some State Parks north of Eureka along Highway 101 include Patrick's Point State Park, with the famed Agate Beach and jaw-dropping ocean views, and Humboldt Lagoons State Park. Further north Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park, and Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park are jointly managed in a unique arrangement with the National Park Services' Redwood National Park. Together these parks protect 45 percent of the remaining old-growth redwood forest.

LINKS FOR WEATHER
Because Humboldt Redwoods State Park is located about 20 miles inland some coastal forecasts don't reliably reflect our weather. The National Weather Service operates an office in Eureka, and the Weott Forecast is usually quite accurate.
For those looking to kayak or canoe in the South Fork Eel river you'll want to know about river flow conditions. Heavy rains can dramatically change conditions very quickly. The USGS' Miranda River Guage is located on the south end of the park. If the flow indicated above 6000cfs only very exerienced paddlers should enter the water. From 3000cfs to 6000cfs you should have strong paddling skills. Below 3000cfs is generally calm, and anything below 300-500cfs will be too low for paddling.
