Albee Creek Campground Bottom Line

Of the campgrounds we have seen in Humboldt Redwoods State Park, Albee Creek Campground offers a little more privacy with campsites that have more separation between you and your neighbors. Additionally, Albee Creek Campground is fairly remote, and unlike some of the other campsites in Humboldt Redwoods, it is not right along Avenue of the Giants and thus gives a better camping experience. That said, the most private campsites are the tent-only campsites located on the western end of the campground.

Albee Creek Campground has many of the amenities you would expect for a large campground including bathrooms, showers, running water, and food lockers. There is no visitors center or camp store within the campground, but you can by firewood from the campground hosts.

During peak summer camping season, Albee Creek Campground can be very crowded and reservations are often recommended.

Campsites with more privacy: 1-3 & 15-26

The least private campsites: 4-83, 29,30, 7-40
