Humboldt Lagoons State Park encompasses an unusual stretch of coastline, where the Pacific is bordered by long stretches of exposed, grey sand beaches, beyond which are four lagoons, separated by wooded bluffs. US 101 runs along the inland side of three of them but returns to the shore past the northernmost, Freshwater Lagoon, which is separated from the Pacific by a narrow spit, at the south end of the adjacent Redwood National Park. The three main facilities in the state park are a campground, an information center and a day use area, this at the end of a short side road past Dry Lagoon.
