STANDISH-HICKEY SRA, CA
DescriptionSeason for Peak Fees: 05/15 to 09/15
At the "gateway to the tall trees country", Standish-Hickey State Recreation Area offers camping, picnicking, hiking, fishing, and swimming on 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.
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 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 brough 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.
