The site is located on the south side of Mill pond. After a short walk you will find a clear flat area to camp. Picnic table, fire ring and a great stage build with windows.

Mendocino magic is quite a place, we had a fantastic weekend there. There were lots of other people around but it never felt remotely crowded, tons of space and the campsite we were at (Portals) was reasonably secluded but still conveniently located. The only downside to that campsite is that it's not far from the stage area; there was some sort of family reunion going on the weekend we were there and we heard the music they were playing in the evenings. Relatively minor, though.

Perhaps my favorite part of the experience was picking blackberries all weekend! They're everywhere!

Portals is a gorgeous site at the already incredible Mendocino Magic property. Tucked away from the other sites, this walk-in spot is private, has an awesome tent platform, picnic table, other table for storing your stuff, and is a 2 minute walk from porta-pottys and drinking water (and hand sani!). The air at the portals site was thick with the smell of flowers this weekend, and what felt like an actual orchestra of frogs played us to sleep both nights. Mendocino Magic indeed :)

Portals was a great site! On the map it looked somewhat near to some other sites and when we arrived we thought folks may have to pass by our site to get to theirs - but it was very private! We barely saw anyone else while we were there, and there were easily two other great spots for tents apart from the wooden platform. Super nice to have two tables - a picnic table in the sun and another one in the shade that we stored things on. We felt lucky to have a fire pit as we noticed many of the sites in the sunnier areas near brush did not have them (probably for safety?). Note there is no grill on the fire pit. There were some mosquitos around dusk but the fire helped with that. Our pup loved the family swim area - we camped out on the dock there for several hours of swimming, napping, and picnicking. We were able to use the outdoor shower near the glampsites which was a lovely unexpected perk. Lastly, there are large jugs of water placed near each porta-potty site that someone must refill every AM - so nice to have cold fresh water walking distance!
