No matter where you lay your head when you’re camping in Mendocino, you’re sure to be surrounded by giant redwoods, lush ferns, scenic hiking trails and mind-blowing coastline teeming with tide pools. You won’t have to work hard at “getting back to nature” when you’re in Mendocino, whether you’re glamping in the forest or roughing it in one of Mendocino National Forest’s many dispersed camping areas found just off the main roads. Although the national forest also offers many developed campgrounds, campers seeking silence and solitude over showers and hook-ups can enjoy camping on private land or dispersed camping in Lakeview, Lower Nye and Grizzly Flat campgrounds. Rent out the National Forest’s rustic cabin perched high atop an outcrop at 4,000 feet surrounded by a dense conifer canopy.

Seaside RV parks and waterfront lake parks catering to boaters and anglers abound. Horse owners find welcome when camping in Mendocino at facilities such as the 14-acre Black Butte River Ranch. The ranch abuts the National Forest and offers guests cabins and a horse pasture while also accommodating tents and RVs. There’s always something to do, but it’s really easy to do nothing but soak up the serene, sanity-restoring Mendocino magic.
