Richardson Grove State Park reviews
Richardson Grove is a great camping area for family fun. This Redwood Grove lines the Eel River in Southern Humboldt County. Summer activities include. Fishing, Swimming, Biking (of both types), or just relaxing. Rangers tell stories on some nights in a group entertainment area, open to campers. Some really great memories can be had here.
Great Camping experience. This is a tent camp ground that will accommodate small trailers and pop-ups. The Oak Flat area is seasonally open on the East side of the Eel River and is super fun during summer. State Parks does a good job of keeping it clean and the trees are amazing.
