Van Duzen County Park Campground

Van Duzen County Park's Swimmers Delight Campground is off Highway 36 and beside the Van Duzen River in Humboldt County. The campground is 12 miles east of Highway 101 at Alton. Usually by mid and late summer the flow of the river is low enough to make it safe for wading and swimming. Other times of year it attracts anglers and experienced rafters.

Swimmers Delight Campground has 30 campsites for small RVs, trailers, and tents. Six sites have electric (30 amp) hook-ups. There is also a Hike & Bike site.

Pamplin Grove Group Campground, an annex about 2 miles west of Van Duzen Park, is open from May 1 to October 31. Fees range from $275 per night up to $650 per night depending on the days of the week and holidays. Reservations: (707) 445-7651.
