A day before Labor Day weekend & we were lucky enough to score this spot! I hadn't had the chance to visit Mendocino before and this was the perfect spot to do so. Down the street is Hendy Woods and Anderson Brewing Company, and only 20 miles from the coast in the other direction. We managed to squeeze in all those activities but will be back for hikes in Mendocino National Forest & wine tasting.

The campsite had everything you could want - dense forest, flowing water (both a stream and clean drinking water), flushing toilets, & a hot shower. It was also quiet in the evenings, unlike dense public campgrounds usually are.

We didn't get to meet Christina as she was cheffing an event when we arrived but her husband met us promptly & showed us around the property. Saturo (Christina's husband) and the detail in the space speak to the hospitality and thought put into this place. Definitely recommend!

We took a chance and booked Mill Creek w no prior reviews based upon how cool the property looked in the photos and the fact that it had a hot shower, and we were handsomely rewarded. To begin the bathhouse/shower blew our expectations out of the water. It was just constructed out of repurposed redwood planks and all of the little conveniences were considered from hooks, to sink, to benches, not to mention the larger things like hot shower w strong water pressure and flush toilet.
There are four sites on property...two under the redwood canopy and two that are more exposed. The site we ended up w was one that was uncovered and suited our needs perfectly as we had complete privacy and enough space for our two dogs to run around.
There is also a creek to hike in on property which the dogs were absolutely stoked about.
Christina and family could not have been more gracious hosts and we felt like their personal guests. I could not recommend Mill Creek more strongly. We hope to return soon.

*this is a perfect place to rent the entire camp and host and big party or gathering.

We had the most wonderful experience here, the host’s were so accommodating and helpful to thru our whole stay. We stayed for 3 days in a beautiful site amongst redwood trees and a creek next to the tent. There’s a lot a things to do around the area, we went to winieries and the beach in Mendocino. There’s a great fruit and veggie stand down the street and a really cool rock shop as well. We will be coming again !

Mill Creek Ranch was a perfect spot for our first Hipcamp trip. Perfectly located for those exploring the Alexander Valley vineyards and a beautiful drive away from the Mendocino coast. Sites were just as advertised and the amenities tip top. If your are headed out this way, don't sleep on MCR.

We enjoyed two nights at Mill Creek Retreat. We were lucky to arrive between rainstorms, and enjoyed the beautiful location in the redwoods at the edge of the Anderson Valley and our trips to the coast. Highlights were walking to (and in) the creek on the property, having our pup thrilled by the freedom of being off leash and, as others have noted, the great restroom. The weekend after Thanksgiving, we were the only campers; I expect the camp is busier other times. I would recommend the camp for families and groups especially; there is a great group/wedding site on the property. We were only disappointed that our site was bordered by piles of wood (from a prior structure?) and that the solar lights on the route to the outhouse were not functioning. We were glad that a site was available with sun and dry ground. Christina was helpful providing directions for our arrival, with prompt communications.

We were lucky enough to stay at Mill Creek Ranch over Christmas in a 30 ft. travel trailer. We were the only campers and had the place to ourself. Christina met us at the main road and led us up to her property and helped us find the perfect spot. She and her son showed my family around the property while I set up camp. My kids has so much fun with Christina’s son and all the places he took them. The creek was especially fun for the kids and their rain boots!

Christina’s husband checked on us in the morning and gave us local tips and places to visit. Much appreciated!

The property is so beautiful and so private. We were amazed with how many stars were were able to see at night.

We would definitely come back!

Excellent time at Mill Creek Ranch. Our campsite was right off the creek, which the pup thoroughly enjoyed. We also were able to take in the overwhelmingly beautiful starlit night. The hosts were also super nice. Bathroom was very nice, but make sure to bring your own drinking water. Would definitely stay again.

We didn't know what to expect since there weren't any public reviews. When we arrived we were super fortunate to be the only campers there. The treehouse platform made for an awesome location to set our tent. The bathroom and shower were just a short stroll up the hill and were very clean. We had a great time and would definitely go back.
