This campground is the cream of the crop in Standish-Hickey, but be warned that it might be closed. It’s now open during the summer, after being closed off due to limited state funding. As it is only accessible by bridge, it is closed during the rainy season where the river floods like crazy. However, this campground is definitely worth looking into because it has the best location far from the highway (and its noise). Not to mention, it’s right on the banks of the gorgeous Eel River for swimming, fishing, and sunbathing opportunities.

If your biking through on the coastal route, you've either just climbed a brutal section or your about to, so...

Go immediately across the street from the Standish-Hickey rec area for some DELICIOUS and reasonably priced sandwiches.

There's also a general store across the street, very helpful for those forgotten items. :)
