If you are thinking about buying a home in the Austin Creek area of the Russian River and using the Austin Creek State Park for now the state has given you a reprieve. The State of California has been considering shutting down Austin Creek State Park but thanks to the Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods it appears that they have negotiated a new operating agreement that will keep the park open and operating for your enjoyment. There are also many homes for sale near the Armstrong Woods State Park that offer hiking, camping and just enjoying the majestic redwoods. Austin Creek is accessed through the same entrance as Armstrong Redwoods and its beautiful rolling hills, grasslands, animals, and oaks are a beautiful and dramatic contrast to the dense canopy of the redwood grove.
