Named after Friend W. Richardson, the 25th governor of California, Richardson Grove State Park is where you first encounter significant old growth redwood forest when coming north. It is seven miles south of Garberville on Highway 101. Phone (707) 247-3318 for more information.
The Huckleberry Campground has three accessible campsites (#14, #23, and #33). Accessible water stations serving these campsites are nearby. The combo restroom/shower building near campsite #14 has a toilet stall that is generally accessible. Shower may be usable. A van-accessible parking space is adjacent to the restroom/shower building.
The Exhibit / Grove Nature Trail is over 0.3 mile long and consists of several small trail loops that depart from the Visitor Center to the north, south, and west. The west loop branches off of the north loop and goes under the highway for safe passage. All of the trails meander through large, old growth redwood trees. The south trail is an interpretive trail with numerous educational panels along the trail that interpret the natural history of the redwoods. A unisex restroom behind the visitor center is generally accessible. Accessible parking spaces are located at the Visitor Center near the trailhead.
The Visitor Center/Store may be usable. Assistance may be needed with ramp, thresholds, and doors. Some store aisles are narrow and reach to some items may require help from sales staff. Accessible parking is available at the Visitor Center.
