Fort Humboldt State Historic Park is a California state park, located in Eureka, California, United States. Displays interpret the former U.S. Army fort, which was staffed from 1853–1870, the interactions between European Americans and Native Americans in roughly the same period, and both logging equipment and local narrow gauge railroad history of the region. Within the collection, there are trains, logging equipment, including a fully functional Steam Donkey engine, and an authentic Native American dug-out canoe. The Fort overlooks Humboldt Bay from a commanding position atop a bluff. The North Coast regional headquarters of the California State Parks system is located onsite.

  • Great spot to learn about the history of logging in the area as well as the Fort itself. Perfect for history buffs! Clean and well maintained grounds, great for a picnic.

  • This is a great place to go for a picnic or to fly a kite! This is one of the best kite-flying places in Eureka. The museum is nice as well. Everyone should make a point of checking this place out!

  • It's a Bitter Sweet experience. As a kid I loved it, the little logger cabin,etc. Now that I'm older and they have recently added plaques around the site explaining what really happened when Bucks Port "Eureka" was founded. I'm glad that they did that it was a long time coming. It's a awesome place to fly a kite and walk Your dog on a sunny day. I suggest it if your from out of the area and want to learn some of the history of Humboldt County. Enjoy
  • Nicely kept grounds - impressive history. We love finding out what happened in the old west as it was settled - it's amazing what culture there used to be in this area. It's super sad to read about some of the things that happened to the natives in the area as well. Excellent place to take a walk and learn a little history.
