Redwood Camping at its Finest 
 
Camping in Standish-Hickey State Recreation Area (SRA) is a tradition since 1922. 
If you love camping in the redwoods, especially in this majestic California Sate Park, please join us.

We local citizens will revitalize and protect our beloved park.

Standish-Hickey State Recreation Area is OPEN!

Standish Hickey SRA, Rock Creek and Hickey Loops, are now open on a first come first serve basis under the operation of Mendocino Area Parks Association (MAPA) and Team Standish until further notice. 

Team Standish (TS) is a dedicated group of local citizens passionate about keeping Standish-Hickey State Recreation Area (SRA). TS and the surrounding communities, nonprofits and tribal citizenry are vital to the success of the park. TS, along with their passion for the Park, are contributing admirable expertise and time, and have worked hard to put all this together. They are a guiding inspiration for movement to save the Park and are the ones who contacted MAPA requesting a collaboration. To volunteer...

MAPA is a 501(c)3 cooperating association formed in 1984 for the purpose of providing education programs in our state parks, Mendocino County.  MAPA supports four visitor centers, seasonal interpreters, educational equipment and displays/panels. The nonprofit also funds important projects in our local state parks.  The most recent project is the completion of the new roof on the Ford House Museum inMendocino.  MAPA Website

Standish-Hickey SRA is located off Highway 101, north of Leggett. At the "gateway to the tall trees country," the area offers camping, picnicking, hiking, fishing, and swimming on the South Fork of the Eel River which winds through the park for almost two miles. One of the few virgin redwood-stands remaining in this area can be seen on the Grove Trail, which is ADA compliant, as are several of the campsites.

Encompassing 1,012 acres of parklands with two miles of river frontage, Standish-Hickey offers to the visitor when driving north on 101 the first chance to walk and sleep in old growth groves and swim in a wild and scenic river.

Camping Season: Standish-Hickey is a year-round campground and now that the park is reopened, the facility is available for camping, swimming, fishing and day-use.

Come camping at Standish!  Thanks for caring for these parks that belong to all of us.
