Campers Orchard is a large, flat, shaded area that is an especially great space for group campouts. There are porta potties nearby, and the site has 2 hot outdoor showers. There is flat space and shade year round for up to 15 tents, as well as a small campfire pit for the seasons when campfires are okayed (unfortunately no fires are permitted for the 2021 season). Great for young families, groups, and/or novice campers.

There will be no personal campfires allowed at Mendocino Magic for the 2021 season. Campers wishing to have a campfire are invited to join us at the communal propane fire disk (by the Central Camper's Kitchen) where it is safest. We do allow personal propane stoves for cooking (not propane firepits), which we have available to rent at the Front Porch. We hate having to take campfires out of the camping experience, but fire season is a scary time of year for everyone, and we all must do our part to ensure the safety of our community. During a fire ban, please do not start a fire at any camp's fire ring - guests who do so will be asked to leave without a refund.

An amazing and magical stay as always. Mendocino magic has been and continues to be a truly special place to unplug and get back to nature.

Wonderful site and a wonderful stay. This is my second time at Mendocino Magic, and I loved it even more than the first time. Mackenzie and crew are fantastic to work with, and the property truly is magical.

I do not recommend this location. We were shocked when we pulled up to see how poorly they had kept the entire spot. I've been camping for decades and this has to be the worst by far.

CONS:

The sites in the main camp ground are a dump surrounded by junk yards. For example, there were 4 toilet seats ditched on the grass right next to our camp site. There is junk all over the property. We paid $150 a night...absolutely outrageous. The host was brutal to coordinate with outside of hipcamp messenger. We were traveling with young kids so we wanted to better understand the different camp grounds and options and she was only willing to coordinate via messenger which meant more time trying to email back and forth. Literally a 5 min call would have answered all of our questions.

PROS:

There is a pond. If you get to camp by the pond I would say "maybe" worth it because you can swim there and you're far away from all their junk/ trash.

Porter potties and washing stations...that's about the only good thing you get for $150 a night.

Mackenzie was amazing. The campsite was spacious and well appointed with a sink, showers and ample water supply. There was abundant shade. I felt cared for but never crowded. 10/10 would recommend and will return.
The reservoir lake was stunning. Swam for hours.

Moving back into shared space after sheltering in place for so long with Covid-19 was a unique and unfamiliar vulnerability. Mackenzie and her family were welcoming, mindful and prepared hosts. They made sure to spread the active camp sites enough to foster great boundaries and distance between strangers. The site was clean and absolutely stunning. Spending time walking the trails and swimming in the lake was beyond refreshing. I highly recommend experience the magic. It is a delightful reset.

Mendocino Magic is truly unique. It's a large property with a very quiet and private feel. Yet, you also feel part of a friendly community. Our site was perfectly spacious and located with only a quick jaunt to the lake and trails. Would definitely recommend.
