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. There is a visitor center.

The campground is open year-round and can accommodate up to 24' trailers and 30' motor homes as well as tents. There are no hook-ups.

The park is 20 miles south east of Eureka on HWY. 101, then 17 miles east of HWY. 36.
