The most beautiful cabin anywhere
Cabin 36 is the best cabin in Mendocino Woodlands! Come prepared for frog croaking right outside all night. We've vacationed at cabins all over the west and these historic cabins have the best views and most beautiful setting of park or resort we've been to. It's chilly in April, but once we got a roaring fire going it was nice and toasty. Fantastic hiking, wildflowers, birding. World class mountain biking; the Big River trail is a mountain biker's dream.
Our happy place.
Mendocino Woodlands is our happy place. Our days are filled with memories of attending UU Family Camp. Delighted to have the opportunity to make more memories camping at the Woodlands for a weekend getaway. My husband and I did a trial run, just the two of us. Looking forward to sharing our happy place with friends.
This place is truly magical! The cabin was cozy with a beautiful view of the beaver pond. We were serenaded each night by the frogs and owls. The meadow was a perfect setting for meal prep as well a game of frisbee. We hiked to BIG tree and then lounged at Boyle’s swimming hole. We are already planning next year’s reunion. We love the Woodlands!!
Great cabin camping
Historic rustic cabins, beautiful forests, trails, bicycling and hiking trails. Hosts are exceptional and very helpful. Highly recommended. Impeccably maintained shower/bathroom facilities. Dramatic stone fireplaces in each cabin are truly phenomenal for nighttime fire gazing. This is not “glamping”, bring everything you need. Barebones cabins and 4 single cots per cabin. It’s camping, but really GREAT and truly memorable.
Our stay was very nice! The historic cabins are beautiful and rustic. The people running it are friendly and helpful, and the grounds and surrounding area are pristine and spectacular. I hope they can continue to rent through hipcamp to smaller groups, it was a nice opportunity for us. One of the tiny silver linings of covid.
