Slug Acres is a tiny campground I'm in the process of creating overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  Its a piece of Heaven where the Navarro River meets the Ocean and only minutes away from the Navarro River Redwoods State park.  Banana Slugs love to live under the canopy of Redwood trees and other Majestic Pines and are often found on my property, hence the name of your future camping destination.  At night you will enjoy sleeping by the sound of the waves from the Pacific that carry up thru a gully from small stream that flows on the perimeter of my place.  In the distance you will hear the faint soothing sound of the Fog Horn to the entrance of the Albion River harbor. 

Leave everything at home and relax in a 10 x 10 canvas tent with queen size bed and warm flannel sheets. Plenty of headroom for the 6 foot 6 inch person in your life. A propane heater keeps the inside toasty and cozy while the sounds of ocean waves carry up thru the gulch. There is also a 10 x 10 platform looking out to the Ocean with 2 camp chairs provided for sipping wine/beer at dusk. The camp kitchen and outhouse is shared with one other campsite. This site is reserved for only 2 people and 1 parking space.

There are many wonderful things to say about the property and my personal favorite is that it's usually insect free.  It's pretty rare to experience a nasty mosquito.  Even better there are no wild animals that will eat your food at night, aside from the occasional chipmunk.  Wild turkeys, deer and woodpeckers often wander aimlessly around the grounds, all harmless and entertaining, especially the babies. 

The Navarro River State Beach is just 1.3 miles from my property.  You can walk there but Highway 1 can be a little busy especially on the weekends.  So I suggest driving to the entrance and parking there.  The Navarro Redwood park is just a bit farther and where George Lucas filmed the scene in Star Wars in the Ewok village.  There are so many other state parks and cities too explore nearby.  The Elk store is about 4 miles away for your basic needs or a delicious sandwich.  

Many times I will be onsite for your stay to make sure your stay is a pleasant one.  I'm an eccentric character that wears my hats.  In particular after years working in Emergency room medicine I transitioned into becoming an international boat captain and as a side project create large concrete sculptures.  I've lived along the Mendocino coast for 14 years and happy to share all the secret exploring sites along the coast.  However, once settled in I will probably find my way of the outskirts of Slug Acres to let you feel like you have your very own campground.  By renting my space you will be supporting a Dream.  One of creating an off grid paradise that will better the experience of future campers... Hope to see your Tent pitched on my property soon..

Such a perfect stay - the tent is cozy and warm and the bed is very comfortable. Perfect for when you want to be outside but you also want to sleep well. The location is gorgeous! Definitely recommend. I will be back.

My partner and I stayed at Kyle's campground during a rainy weekend, and it was the perfect place for us to relax and get outside (except for during the downpours). Close to Mendocino, Fort Bragg, and dozens of beaches and state parks, we were able to see the area while also enjoying Kyle's awesome campground. Kyle drove from his place to meet and welcome us, which was also a great part of the visit. I'd definitely recommend this for camping during any season, and we certainly hope to be back!

Great stay at Kyles -- beautiful ocean view and starry night sky. The tent was warm and bed was comfy! Will definitely stay at Slug Acres another time soon!
