Austin Creek State Recreation Area

Next to Armstrong State Park

North of the town of Guerneville, the Armstrong Grove of Redwoods will lead you into total seclusion. Hike for miles & miles in prestine redwood forest. Paved Bull Frog Road will lead you through this lovely park - up the steep hill, way back to Austin Creek, where a decent little campground can be found.

Located near the Russian River and a cute tourist town, this place is a car campers delight! Shady, private, secluded, with well spaced out camp sites.

No kidding about these wild racoons! These are not pets & they do bite. And they could have diseases, so keep away from them.

There are plenty of ways to protect your food here, so don't get lazy. Or else your whole box of cereal may be missing. Raccoons are fierce and in force out here.
