This is a double site, labeled as Sites 14/15. It is in a quieter area with excellent wildlife viewing, right on banks of the Albion river. Bring your Kayak! A favorite spot for our resident Great Blue Herons

This site can accommodate up to 8 people with 4 small tents. Please note, due to high fire hazard this summer, campfires are only permitted in a few shared sites with more contained fire pits and fire hoses. Site 5, adjacent to the restroom, has a fire pit you can use.

We are beginning an extensive restoration project, inviting the native vegetation and creatures back. Watch the transformation, as human impact is minimized and the river is allowed to shape the place. 

Our facilities will remain rustic... Think Camping, not Glamping!

Each Site has water, electricity, and a picnic table. There are shared bathrooms with coin operated showers. Our campground is known for its family friendly village atmosphere. Here are some of our our Rules of the River~

Meet your neighbors, share food, be kind. Watch out for each other

Take only photos. Harvest only what you will eat. Leave only footprints

Keep lights low. See the Milky Way

We have silence, and birdsong, please turn off radios/TVs/stereos. Acoustic Musicians welcome. Quiet time 9P-8A

Keep the gate closed! 5 MPH strictly enforced.

We are all guests of the river

See our campground website, SchoonersLanding-Albion for more information

Please Note- You do not have a reservation until you receive a confirmation from us. We can not take same day reservations

We had a great stay here! Did not get a chance to interact with Gabriella in person but she was helpful with replying to messages and answering questions. It was amazing to spend some time in nature, this place is beautiful.

Location and environment is perfect. However, there is unmaintained table and chair and fire pit doen't have grill. If customer can rent kayak on demand, it would be more perfect.

Pros: right on the right river, close to Mendocino. Cons: no space between campsites, lack of privacy.

I hesitate to write the glowing review this sweet camp deserves because I don’t want to share it with the world! It was a magical place to camp and we can’t wait to return! The only thing I would change is a better fire pit be made available at site 14/15. That’s no biggie though. The hosts were the kindest and most friendly people! Highest grade!!!
