Orchard Cabin @ Jug Handle Farm
Super cozy spot, the fire place was easy to get going and super helpful with the cold nights. Very pretty camp ground and close to lovely hikes to the ocean and forest. Common spaces were lovely and had everything we needed. Great clamping and so happy we went!

Great stay!!
We loved our stay at Jughandle! So much room to roam, and we loved walking the private path to the beach. Portable toilets were immaculate, great communication via phone with the hosts. Site #4 is huge (our friends had site 5, but ended up staying on our side, as there was so much room) and we loved that it had electricity so we could use our lights and a heater in our small vintage trailer on a very cold night. Sites are well spaced apart. Can’t wait to return!

Lovely Campsite
Nice place to stay! Location was easy to get to, quaint campsite, clear instructions. I had reservations about the only available restrooms as Porta Potties, but I was pleasantly surprised at their cleanliness - well maintained & clean! Will very likely book again :)

The campground is very clearly marked from Hwy 1 even if you’re from out of the area and arriving in the dark like me! The directions to the site were clearly marked and easy to find. There are ample & clean porta-potties throughout. We were in and out on a long journey to Portland so didn’t get to fully enjoy the site or see it in the daylight but from what I could tell it was very cozy and woodsy and I would come stay again on future travels. Close to Mendocino town center and Point Cabrillo lighthouse. Would recommend, especially if you’re staying to enjoy the area longer than I was!
