There are two secluded tent camping sites in Coast Redwood and Grand Fir tree fairy rings on this private, quiet, 5.5 acre working farmstead, located right on the Mendocino Coast on Highway 1, just north of Fort Bragg and across from the MacKerricher State Park entrance; 22 minutes north of Mendocino Village.
No pets, please. They frighten the livestock. No exceptions, please don't ask.
This beautiful camping area has fresh well water and high-speed Wi-Fi. You can see the sun set over and hear the ocean.
Please see the campsite review in my RV listing. The campers booked there.
There is a large, communal fire pit with straw bale seating and a horseshoe pit nearby. There's also a Weber kettle, a WSM, an outdoor Coleman camp kitchen table with a wash basin, a two burner Coleman propane camp stove, and a turkey fryer for steaming crab - please supply your own propane, charcoal, smoking wood, and firewood or purchase firewood here. I'm working on building a fish cleaning station.

Porta-potties can be arranged upon request.

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Beautiful, private site, but not for everyone. It was perfect for me, a woman alone. I had the peace, beauty and safety I was looking for and I was close to town and beaches. Probably not as good for large groups or people seeking a typical campground.
