Humboldt Lagoons State Park Things to Do
The Humboldt Lagoons State Park has both the lagoon area and a nice beach area. The lagoon area was drained in the early 1900s to serve as farmland but none of the crops grew well enough to be economically adviseable. Then they tried to establish several dairy farms; but those too failed. Then they established a motel-restaurant called the "Little Red Hen" next to the lagoon. This business continued in operation until 1979. Now the area has been restored to a marshland habitat.
There is also a nice beach where you can enjoy beachcombing, bird watching, whale watching, agate hunting, and the three mile Coastal Trail.
Hours for the Visitors Center are 10 AM to 3 PM daily from June to September. The day use areas are open from sunrise to sunset.Related to:
