Oak Flat Campground
Oak Flat Campground is spread along the east side of the Eel River in Richardson Grove State Park. Most of its campsites are farther from the highway than in other campgrounds in the park.
Campers at Oak Flat are only a short walk from the Visitor Center, the swim beach, and other park features. Fishing for steelhead is popular in the winter. In the summer when water levels are safe, swimming is a favorite activity. A number of self-guided nature trails lead through the park.
Oak Flat Campground has 94 campsites, #77-170. Sixteen sites are reserved for tents only, while the rest can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. Campsites are located among scattered oaks which offer mixed sun and shade.
Reservations for all Richardson Grove State Park campsites are available from 2 days up to 7 months in advance. Reservations become available in one-month blocks on the first of the month, 7 months in advance. For example, on January 1 campsite reservations become available for all of July.
