Hendy Woods State Park is a state park of California, USA, located in the Anderson Valley of Mendocino County. It is known for its old-growth coast redwoods and also provides camping facilities near the wineries of the Anderson Valley. It is named after Joshua Hendy, who owned the land and stipulated that it be protected; it passed through several owners after Hendy without being logged, before becoming part of the California State Park system in 1958.Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Boonville using our trip planner.
Hendy Woods State Park lies in the Anderson Valley of Mendocino County, approximately a three-hour drive north of San Francisco; it is the only large park within the Anderson Valley. It is about 20 miles from the coast, and because of the distance, it is noticeably warmer than California's coast redwood forests on the coast. The park can be reached via the Philo–Greenwood Road, just off California State Route 128.
The park covers 816acre of land and contains two groves of old-growth coast redwood: Big Hendy (80 acres) and Little Hendy (20 acres). Some of the trees are over 300ft tall and may be nearly 1,000 years old. Other trees in the woods include madrone, Douglas fir, and California laurel. The park also contains 3.3 miles of property along the banks of the Navarro River and provides the only public access to the river within the Anderson Valley.

This is a nice spot if one wants convenient proximity of first growth Redwoods, easy hiking trails and access to the Navarro River. The river bank in summer is a nice place to read after hiking among ... more »
This is a small but worth-wile stop or camping destination, for a 1- or 2-hours hike around the park; there's big and small groves, and a river adjacent to the park, and easily accessible. The seem to... more »
Peaceful , beautiful, wonderful rangers, nice place to getaway. Only negatives are showers are not free and sites are very close together and short . Not a good place for a 23' or bigger trailer. There are some long spaces just not too many. Nice tables and storage cabinets to keep the critters out. There are a bunch of little ground squirrels or Chipmunks ? That come out in the mornings to forage and play. Cute little rascals . I love this place.
This is another of the great state parks. Hiking trails lead through huge redwood forest. The Navarro River didn't have a lot of water but it provided nice background with very relaxing ambience. Trial map was a little hard to match to the signs and forks on trails. Signage along trails helps much.
