Camping at Redwoods by the Sea will not disappoint. September and October are our “summer months” here at the coast. It’s a perfect time for a little get-away for you and your favorite person! Beautiful redwoods combined with expanses of ferns and wild flowers results in an undeniable appreciation for the beauty found here. Peaceful beach sunsets are only minutes away as well as spectacular dining choices in the town of Mendocino, Little River and Fort Bragg. We have TWO equally beautiful sites to offer. Site #1 can accommodate two tents and has a picnic table and hammock for afternoon sun, and is located near water, bathroom, and fire pit. Site #2 is located on a short path alongside the little creek on our property. It is private and tucked away from other campers but relatively close in proximity to our home. It has a picnic table and can accommodate three tents. The sound of the babbling creek is sure to relax any of our lovely hipcampers! Both sites share the community fire pit where SAM has a prepared fire for you each evening. Extra Firewood is available. The Camp Coffee House is stocked with water, coffee, tea, condiments, and hot chocolate. Feel like playing games? We have corn hole, badminton, giant Jenja, and board games. We are only 1. 5 miles from the ocean and less than 5 miles from the thriving arts environment in Mendocino. You’ll find fine art galleries, custom jewelers, master woodcarvers, lifestyle boutiques, two theater companies, and annual film, music, and whale festivals which animate this 21st century town. Visitors are drawn to hiking, biking, and kayaking near by, the Botanical Gardens, Big River Lagoon, Mendocino Headlands, Van Damme State Park, and many secluded coves and beaches. Don't be surprised to see the spouts of passing gray whales 🐳 from the Mendocino headlands or Navarro Beach. Because Redwoods by the Sea is CENTRALLY LOCATED, your experience of the great outdoors will be convenient and full of the peace and serenity you’re looking for. 🌲🌲🌲 We may not be the best fit for children. There are safety issues around the Tiny House we are building near our house. Unless supervised AT ALL TIMES, we don’t recommend it.

Sam & Marcy were more than wonderful hosts during our stay at Redwoods by the Sea. We unexpectedly arrived later than expected, and they stayed up just to greet us and direct us to the camp site in the dark. Their property is GORGEOUS! The towering redwoods surrounding the site makes it feel secluded and calming, while they amenities offered here (a lovely outhouse near the site, a beautiful deck next to a fireplace with camping chairs, and lovely hand carved works by Sam himself) make this a unique, not-to-miss place to stay. I HIGHLY recommend spending time here!

Towering redwoods surrounding the site!The outhouse, just a 30 second walk from the campsite right next to where you should park your car.One of a few of Sam's lovely wood carvings - a chair made from a redwood trunk!The BEST place to make breakfast, surrounded by redwoods.

Sam and Marcy are two real gems of folks you will meet in this lifetime. Not only did they share their beautiful oasis with us, it was a pleasure connecting with them on the important things in life. If you're lucky, you'll get to see some of the beautiful wood carvings Sam works on! We enjoyed a most peaceful camp in their redwood grove, surrounded by beautiful landscaping Marcy clearly pours so much love into. The fire pit area is perfect to warm up next to and enjoy a cup of coffee provided! We will definitely be back!

Sam and Marcy have a great property right off of Highway 1. The tree and foliage are amazing here! The communal area is great and Sam can set up a nice fire, and provide the wood! If you forget your coffee, they've got that covered as well.

This place is so great! Really love the communal firepit but also the secluded location of our tent site couple minutes away under the red woods. Really close to the beach and some cool hiking places. Would love to come back!

Packing up in the morning. Hungry.... Waiting for out hobo packets to cook!Sharing the communal fire ring with a wonderful family we met!

Wow. just wow. Sam and Marcy truly have a wonderful and amazing place. Only eclipsed by Sam and Marcy. My two boys camped one night at redwoods by the sea. We enjoyed making smores by their communal fireplace and exploring the their property and the coast. Not only did Sam and Marcy allow them to explore their property and be boys, Sam also took the time to show them some of his wood carvings and his wood working shop. Dont forget to pet and hang out with Captain the dog. Thank u Sam and Marcy
