Benbow State Recreation Area

Overview
Previously known as Benbow Lake SRA, the park was established at the lake created when the Eel River was dammed in the 1930s to create power for the area. In 2017, the dam was removed to improve Coho salmon habitat. The park is located along Highway 101 two miles south of Garberville. Phone (707) 247-3318 for more information.
