Austin Creek SRA shares an entrance with Armstrong Redwoods SNR


Fire Recovery Update (1/16/21):

Both Armstrong Redwoods SNR and Austin Creek SRA will be closed until sometime in 2021. We hope parts of Armstrong might be opened to docent guided fire walks in late spring but this timeframe is not confirmed. Please sign up to receive our enewsletter (at the top of webpage) to learn how you can volunteer for restoration activities in the months ahead. 

Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve started burning on the forest floor on the afternoon of 8/24/20. The fire slowly burned through the grove and did not affect structures or iconic trees. State Parks, CalFire, and local firefighters worked together to make the best possible decisions with respect to managing the fire for the park and the local community. 
We thank them for their expertise and dedication.

We are sad to say that Austin Creek State Recreation Area was also burned in the Walbridge Fire. The fire went through Bullfrog Pond Campground. We hope to reopen the campground this summer.
Both Parks will be closed until further notice. See superintendent's order. We really need the public to stay away at this time. Volunteer help and support will be needed after assessments are done and hazardous trees are removed.

Stewards' staff and State Park Volunteers are at work removing and processing down trees into firewood, restoring campsites and will soon be working on rebuilding burned fencing. Trails and hazardous conditions are also being assessed by State Parks. If you are interested in Volunteering follow the instructions on THIS PAGE of our website. 

Financial resources are needed as ALL revenue generated at Armstrong Redwoods for Stewards' work has stopped
(day-use fees, camping fees, visitor center sales).


While fires help forests to Renew • Revive • Regenerate,
Stewards needs YOUR HELP to welcome you back safely into your STATE PARKS!

Thank you so very much for your support!\
