Established in 1922 and named after Friend W. Richardson, the 25th governor of California, the park is bisected by Hwy. 101 and the south fork of the Eel River. Camping, hiking, swimming, and just relaxing are popular activities throughout much of the year. Fishing for salmon and steelhead is popular during the winter.

Richardson Grove State Park is where you first encounter significant old-growth redwood forest when coming north. The 9th tallest coast redwood, a fallen tree ring study conducted in 1933, and a walk-through tree are immediately available.

The park offers a variety of summer nature programs during the summer including evening campfire programs, Junior Rangers, and guided nature walks. A visitor center and nature store are located in the historic 1930's Richardson Grove lodge and are also open in the summer.

The park has family campgrounds and a group camp totaling 159 campsites. Campsites can accommodate tents up to 24' trailers and 30' motor homes. There are no hook-ups. Reservations can be made Memorial Day - Labor Day by calling at (800) 444-7275. Several cabins are available for rent and can be reserved by calling the lodge (707) 247-3415.
