My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 days for my birthday this year. Neither of us had been before and after a 10 hour drive we were so pleasantly surprised that it was as gorgeous as we had hoped! The rangers are young kids that are nice. Some of the campsites are SUPER close together, so do your research... More

I've been going to Richardson Grove since I was a kid *mumble mumble* years ago and it is awesome every time. An excellent spot for car camping with coin-operated heated showers (bring quarters!), a wonderful interpretive trail, good river access, as well as more challenging trails heading up the hills on both sides of the river, plus close proximity to...

This place is great if you want to see huge trees all in one grove! We could only stop for about 30 mins but loved walking along the grove. Looked like a great place for a picnic!

Camping among giant redwoods is amazing, the eel river is just a short walk. The rangers were very friendly and helpful. Bring lots of mosquito replant and or candles.

Nice enough camp ground but there was not a lot to do with young children. The river was pretty dried up and inaccessible, unlike the pictures. Not super impressed.

Wow! Camped right in the midst of a Giant Sequoia grove. Not just near it; in it. We had a giant sequoia (over 10 feet wide) right in our campsite!! Friendly hosts and rangers that had lots of fun events for kids and some pretty amazing trails. Campsites were well marked and facilities were very clean. I did not see... More

We stayed in a cabin at Richardson Grove state Park before the Avenue of the giants marathon. The state Park was about half an hour South from the race, so convenient for our purposes. The cabin is primitive, with no sinks or toilets. There is a raised wooden platform for your sleeping pad and sleeping bags, or I imagine that... More
