“bring your own boat & explore the lagoon”
In the early 1900's Dry Lagoon was drained by early farmers and several types of crops were attempted but none proved economical. Several dairy ranches were established along the shores of Stone Lagoon. Later, when the highway was improved, a motel-restaurant called the "Little Red Hen" was located next to the lagoon. This business continued in operation until 1979. The restaurant building was remodeled into a museum and park office and is now the Humboldt Lagoons Visitor Center and Bookstore. Today the marshland habitat has returned and supports a rich variety of marsh plants, birds and other animals. There are day use only picnic areas at the visitor center. The park offers boating, fishing, and hiking.
While we were driving through Northern California, this scenic area of Humboldt Lagoons became our personal paradise for the day.
Nature has surely done its job very well at this part of the earth. The uniqueness of the lagoons add extra beauty to the place and you can take some fantastic photographs while stretching your legs there.
We ended staying 4 hours and admiring the views, but we had to leave because the children got a bit cold at the end.
Beautiful quiet spot. Maybe saw 5 other people the whole time we were there. We sat on the beach and had lunch.
