Description:
At the "gateway to the tall trees country," Standish-Hickey State Recreation Area offers camping, picnicking, hiking, fishing, and swimming on the south fork of the Eel River that winds through the park for almost two miles.

Standish-Hickey began as a 40-acre campground acquired by the Save-the-Redwoods League in 1922. It was named to honor Edward Ritter Hickey, son of a local lumberman who died of influenza while caring for the victims of the epidemic of 1918. In the late 1950's, the Standish family donated over five hundred acres, and additional acquisitions through the years have brought the park's total acreage to 1,012. Much of the land, clear-cut and then burned over in a disastrous fire in the mid-1940's is just now regaining its former beauty. One of the few virgin redwood stands remaining in this area can be seen on the Grove Trail.

The park's three campgrounds contain a total of 162 family campsites. Campsites can accommodate tents, trailers to 24', and 27' motor homes. Camping is available year-round. Summer season reservations can be made by calling (800) 444-7275.
