Camp Redwood
 
This camp was established in 1862 as a midway point between the communities of Trinidad and Elk Camp, Humboldt County, as a result of the bitter conflict between settlers and Indians in the region. Army regulars were posted at Camp Redwood to act as escorts for both supplies and travelers on what was then the Coastal Trail between the two towns.
