The vibe at Modern Camping Mendocino
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We stayed 4 days at the New Mendocino Campground on the second weekend they opened for the season. They had a few bumps to still figure out (we got our fire ring on the second night, had to bring over a picnic table to our site, for example), but overall it was a totally magical experience and we would love to go back. The beds are super comfortable and there are lots of extra blankets which was good, as it gets quite chilly. Remember to put stuff away at night, as it gets thick blankets of fog overnight. We figured that out the first morning when the stuff we left out was all wet.
They have a few really thoughtful touches that were much appreciated like hot water and filtered water available near the restrooms at all times, hot water bottles to tuck in the bed at night and a small breakfast delivered each morning to our porch along with hot water for the provided coffee or tea. The bathrooms and showers were impeccable with wonderful smelling soaps, motion sensored lights, mirrors (you don't often see those camping), a place to charge your phone and HOT water. :) One of the best camping showers I've ever had.
Teresa and the folks she has working there were all super sweet and helpful in getting us whatever we needed. Firewood was delivered to our site each day, which was also a nice perk. Go visit! You won't regret it.
We absolutely loved our two nights here! Right as we arrived we were greeted and given a personal tour of the campground. Bathrooms were clean, showers were hot, the bed was cozy, and breakfast was delivered to the deck in an adorable basket each morning. If you don't mind a little bit of dirt or wrapping up in lots of blankets to stay warm in the foggy Mendocino nights, its a perfect alternative to all the dowdy inns nearby. We can't wait to come back!
My 12 year-old daughter and I had a wonderful time at hip camp last week. Teresa and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The campsite was beautiful, the tent spacious and comfortable and there was even hot water for coffee in the morning and tea all day long (no need for all the supplies we had brought with us). One of my daughter's favorite things was the "surprise" basket, filled with breakfast goodies brought to our tent each morning. During the day we hung out on our deck, walked down to the water, or drove to the beach or into Mendocino to explore. We had a fabulous time and intend to make it our yearly mom-daughter adventure from now on. Thank you!
This place is great and relaxing. We spent 3 nights and could have stayed longer. Each morning they supplied a really great continental breakfast and gourmet coffee. It was the best ever. The tents and bed were immaculate with sheets and blankets. Each camp has its own fire ring with plenty of free wood, gas burning BBQ and picnic table. The tents are spread out so that you don't feel that you're being cramped. The showers and bathrooms are also immaculate with supplied towels, wash clothes, soap and shampoo. The people that run the place were fantastic. (Hello to Teresa and Marny). The town of Mendocino has 7 or 8 restaurants and a very well stocked grocery store. We will defiantly be going back next year.
Had a wonderful time. It was truly someplace I will be returning to. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The tents nice and comfy along with the private fire pits, wood and started included. Bbq was provided for cooking along with utensils. The bathroom was nice with plush towels and great soap. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
The camp was quiet, my campsite was beautiful both inside and out. The bed was comfortable and the continental breakfast was a really nice touch. Theresa was very welcoming and the camp staff helpful. Would absolutely go back.
