After following Hwy 128 through the Anderson Valley, just west of Navarro motorists will find themselves suddenly entering an 11-mile-long tunnel of redwood trees that takes them all the way to the ocean. Welcome to Navarro River Redwoods State Park.
Visitors to the park can enjoy swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and picnicking in and along the Navarro River. There are two campgrounds, although as of this writing the Paul M. Dimmick campground is currently closed, with the Navarro Beach campground remaining open. The park’s redwood groves are home to raccoons, black-tail deer and other wildlife, and the river banks attract kingfishers and other river-oriented birds.
