Please read through all of the provided information, including our “Rules and Safety” and “Pricing” pages.

Winter Glampsite (structures without furniture) are available October through May, and are great for covered tent camping on a platform above the wet ground.

Spring and Summer Glampsite (same sites, but with furniture and either a Queen sized bed or two twin beds with linens. These furnished versions of our glampsites are available May through October.

Glam Camping is camping upscaled! This glampsite features nearby parking, portapotty, hot outdoor shower, solar lights, a reinforced floor, walls on three sides with a shade structure on top, and a queen-sized bed or two twin beds with linens. We recommend bringing sleeping bags for added warmth at night, and headlamps are a must.  Sleeping under the stars in a real bed is a true luxury. The glampsites do not have fire pits, but the communal fire pit and charcoal grills are available approximately 300 feet away at the Lanai Kitchen.

The parking lot is near the glampsites, so you can park in the glampsite-specific parking zone to walk approximately 15 to 50 feet to your site. Please do not drive in and around the glampsites without checking in first with management.

***A NOTE ABOUT FIRES: Some campsites at Mendocino Magic have a firepit, but occasionally during the summer months the state bans fires for campers. We will keep you posted about the status of fires on the property when you book your reservation. Since we would hate to take campfires out of the camping experience, we have started the #onefire campaign to keep campers happy with a fire at our communal cooking area at the lanai, where on Friday and Saturday nights there will be a fire for all to enjoy. During a fire ban, please do not start a fire up at any camp's fire ring - guests who do so will be asked to leave without a refund.

The glampsites are a great option for people who might not be terribly comfortable with roughing it. Beds are cozy and comfortable, and the mosquito nets keep the bugs away. Plus, glampsite #3 has a big, beautiful window on the far wall.

Having access to grills and full gas stove made meals really easy. Ditto the portable bathroom. We were there during a busy weekend (Memorial Day) so there were a number of campers at Mendocino Magic, but it still felt private at the glampsite.

My goal was to be able to pull up with some food and a change a clothes and not have to worry about anything else. That was precisely the experience I got. Very highly recommended.

This was a great and unique setting. We had a wonderful evening up at the reservoir. The stars were incredible.

Mendocino Magic was awesome!! We stayed in Glampsite #4, which was amazing, its at the very end and is very private. It was nice being so secluded and waking up and literally being in nature. My only recommendation would be to add a curtain only because another camper walked by and I was caught in my undies. But the property was amazing and very well kept, my pup loved exploring and running around. The lake was amazing too, it was so peaceful and calm. Some other campers told us about a fallen tree that you can jump off of and its more in the middle of the lake, but the water was perfect. Mackenizie was great when we were preparing, she was very communicative and prompt in responding to my million questions! Would definitely recommend to friends, and it would be great to bring a group and rent out all 4 glampsites! Will definitely be back :)

Our stay was absolutely wonderful - dare i say, magical. We were there on a Monday night and it was super mellow. We grilled a delicious dinner, relaxed in the hammocks, and enjoyed the incredible view of the stars. As the sun went down, the little LED lights around the place (powered by solar energy) came on, making everything look so pretty. In general, the area is absolutely beautiful. We had the chance to swim and boat in the Reservoir and the water was absolutely perfect. Super relaxing. HIGHLY recommended. Just make sure you bring thick sleeping bags, it's chilly at night!

We loved our weekend away at the Glampsites! Besides the pristine reservoir complete with kayaks/floaties you can borrow, the grounds were well-equipped with hammocks to lounge in, a lanai deck for chilling or a yoga session, barbeques and charcoal for cooking up yummy food. The bed in our glampsite #1 was super comfortable and Mackenzie was friendly and helpful. We'll be back! It's tucked away in the Mendocino wilderness and is just far enough away to feel that you are away from the rush of Bay area life. A truly special place.

Had a blast at Mendocino Magic. Stayed in Glampsite #3 which was definitely the nicest one considering it had 3 to to the ground walls. Never had an issue with amenities being sparse-- charcoal grill, gas grill and porta pottys were always accessible. There are lots of little fish in the lake to catch and release. I definitely recommend brining your own pole vs buying at a store close by... our cheap buy broke right away! Overall had an amazingly peaceful experience at Mendocino Magic and wish I were still there now...

loved the property! i'd say every other spot on the property is tremendously better than the glampsites. there are lots of fantastic camping spots worth booking instead. absolutely gorgeous setting with ponds, hills, and the reservoir. the only issue is ticks! we both were bitten by ticks and found 2 other crawling on our children. need to be very vigilant since tick population is exploding everywhere due to mice and free overpopulation.
