Explore Mendocino Coast
Mendocino Grove sits on a forest bluff above the bay and the picturesque town of Mendocino. The campground is in close proximity to several stunning state parks with towering redwood forests, sweeping meadows, coastal bluffs, and sandy-white beaches. These surroundings provide endless opportunity for exploration and outdoor activities.
BEACHES, HIKES AND MORE
Paths and trails are available for every level, from rigorous day-long hikes with steep ascents to tranquil walks through fern canyons, pygmy forests and old-growth redwoods. The surrounding state parks have extensive trail and there are many local free trails with easy access. Not a hiker? Check out the paddle boards, kayaks and outrigger canoes at Catch-a-Canoe, just a short walk from the campground. For those who like to fish, ask us for recommendations for fresh or saltwater excursions.

MENDOCINO AND BEYOND
The campground lies ¼ mile south of the town of Mendocino, a vibrant and beautifully preserved Victorian seaside village with a variety of unique boutiques, art galleries, and interesting restaurants catering to foodies, hippies and hipsters alike. Our favorite haunts include the local independent bookstore, Gallery Bookshop, the cooperative health food store, Corners of the Mouth, and the following restaurants: Good Life Cafe and Bakery, Trillium, Patterson’s Pub, Cafe Beaujolais, Trattoria Luna, Wild Fish, Little River Inn and Mendocino Cafe. If you fancy going further afield Fort Bragg is an easy ten-minute drive north where you will find more gorgeous beaches, hikes and the not-to-be-missed Mendocino Botanical Gardens.

Experience Mendocino Grove
In 2015, we purchased the Mendocino Campground, enamored by the coastal location and the beauty of the surrounding woods. We love to camp but also like a little luxury. To that end, we have created a camping experience that aims to be turn-key and hassle free, catering to every camper from the seasoned to the novice alike united by the desire to get away and enjoy the outdoors.
