Campground Camping

You will find a variety of settings at different elevations to satisfy all outdoor recreational plans. All campgrounds provide campers with a table, a fire ring or camp stove, and restrooms. Not all locations have drinking water. There are no hook-ups or showers. Depending on the weather, most campgrounds open mid to late May and stay open until the water systems are shut down for the winter in October. Most campgrounds close in winter and provide no garbage, water, or restroom service.

  • All campgrounds on the Mendocino National Forest are first come, first served with the exception of group camps.
