Doran Park is a great place to camp. You’re surrounded by water so just about every site has good views. It’s dog-friendly, kid-friendly, and an overall relaxing place to camp.
Russian Gulch is stunning. The campground is beautiful. It is small and private. It has beach access, dog-friendly hiking, and lush greenery. And it is right next to the charming town of Mendocino.
Woodside campground is beautiful and relaxing. You can camp surrounded by trees with lots of shade and you're still only a few minutes from the ocean. We will certainly be back.
Gualala River Redwoods Park was a fun campground to visit. We liked our site and the space we had to explore, we enjoyed seeing the redwoods, the river, and the kids especially liked getting to play at the playground. We would not hesitate to go back.
Sugarloaf Ridge was a fun short getaway. We were very happy with the privacy and space that we had at camp. And even though there were no dog-friendly hikes, we had a great time playing in the creek right at camp.
Although it’s disappointing that dogs can’t go on any of the trails at Hendy Woods, we will still definitely be going back. Even though we primarily stayed at camp, the kids had an amazing time. Just being around the trees, getting to climb on logs, riding bikes around, and exploring nature was enough to keep them busy.
Beach campground is beautiful and right on a dog-friendly beach. The small sites right near your neighbors are worth it for the amazing views and easy beach access.
Manchester Beach is filled with nostalgia for me. I’ve been camping here for decades. It doesn’t offer much seclusion but it makes up for it in convenience, family-friendly fun, and beautiful views.
We had fun spending family time together. But, our favorite campgrounds either have large campsites or dog-friendly trails. That way, there’s enough to keep the kids busy right at camp. This campground had neither.
We love how convenient this campground is. It’s small and you can see your neighbors but it’s worth it. There’s space to roam in your campsite, you can walk to a beautiful trail, and you can bring your dog everywhere!
