Encompassing 1,012 acres of park lands with two miles of river frontage, Standish-Hickey offers to travelers driving north on Highway 101 the first chance to walk and sleep in old growth redwood groves and swim in a wild and scenic river.
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. Nearly ten miles of trails weave through steep canyon bluffs, second-growth forests and pockets of old-growth redwood and Douglas-fir. The fast-moving river—with its rapids, holes of varying depths, calm shallow areas, and cobblestone bed—is especially popular with both swimmers and anglers
