Grizzly Creek Redwoods SP
Grizzly Creek Redwoods State Park is open and in operation thanks to a generous donation by Save the Redwoods League and is being managed by the Humboldt County Parks Department until May 15th, 2013.
We are not accepting any reservations for the 2013 season until it is determined who may or may not be operating the Park after that date. Camping is available on a first come first basis through May 15th at Grizzly Creek.
Please contact the park directly at 707-777-3683 for additional information and availability.
The redwoods in the Grizzly Creek area were what inspired Owen R. Cheatham, founder of Georgia-Pacific Corporation, to preserve this site in perpetuity.
The Cheatham Grove is an exceptional stand of coast redwoods. The park is a quiet place to camp, hike, fish, swim and picnic. The Van Duzen River flows beside the campground.
The park is 20 miles southeast of Eureka on HWY 101, then 17 miles east of HWY 36.
Inland/coastal/temperate. Summer 70-80. Winter 40-50. Dress for rain Nov.-May with up to 65" annually.
Facilities - Activities
30 campsites, canoe and kayaking, fishing & swimming in Van Duzen River, group camp &/or picnic area, 4.5 miles of hiking trails, horse shoe pit, environmental camp, visitor center with exhibits and bookstore.
Although Grizzly Creek Redwoods State Park covers only a few acres, it is large enough to provide a sense of seclusion, and it receives so few visitors that on a weekday it is possible to be the only person in one of its groves of coast redwoods.
