Garberville [1] is a city in Humboldt County in California's North Coast region.

Get in[edit]

Garberville is easily accessible via California Route 101.

Get around[edit]

The town has no public transportation system nor is it frequented by tour buses. If you plan on using Garberville as your base of operations for exploring the redwoods, there's no option other than bringing a vehicle.


Garberville is a very small town with no attractions for tourists within its borders. It is, however, ideally located for travelers who wish to explore the Humboldt Redwoods without camping in the wilderness.


Garberville lies only about 3 miles south of the entrance to the Avenue of the Giants, a 30 mile long stretch of scenic highway featuring several of the tallest trees on the planet. Many of the biggest and best groves of redwoods can be seen on short loop hikes, no longer than 1.5 miles. It is therefore very easy to venture out in the morning from Garberville, drive the Avenue in its entirety, take several hikes at a leisurely pace, and be back in town before sundown.


The Garberville-Redway Chamber of Commerce is located at 773 Redwood Drive, just a short walk down the street from the Best Western. There are a number of shops there where one can buy, among other things, souvenirs such as shot glasses or t-shirts.

There are also three gas stations located on Garberville's main strip.


One block down Redwood Dr. from the Best Western is a restaurant called Cecil's. It is upstairs and somewhat hidden from the street so read the signs carefully. The menu consists of authentic Creole food, emphasizing fish and beef dishes.


There are two Western-style bars on Redwood Dr. near the Best Western, heavily populated with locals on the weekends.


  • Best Western Humboldt House Inn, 701 Redwood Drive, +1 707 923-2771 (fax: +1 707 923-4259), [2].  edit
