Grizzly Creek Redwoods State Park is located 20 Miles east of Eureka, California then another 18 miles east of Fortuna, California on State Route 36. This low use park containing 30 campsites is sited on the Van Duzen River. The small park was created by a donation from Owen R. Cheatham, founder of Georgia-Pacific Corporation, who wanted to preserve the stand of Redwoods, now comprising the heart of this park, in perpetuity. The park is so secluded due to its location off the major regional artery, US 101, that on a weekday a visitor can be the only person in any one of the several groves.
