19 Parks near Albion, California
Nov 2012 - $33.00
For a place to just spend the night before traveling on, this was just fine. I'm sure its popular with fisher folk during season. There were plenty of large sites with W&E. This time of year the park is mostly empty so almost all the sites were pull through, since they are back to back. Really enjoyed walking down to the beach last evening to find beach glass and photo the sunset. It is a very steep drive down to the park, but the sites are quite level and the Wi-Fi is great. - Littlebigrv

This place is pretty rough. STEEP grade (14%) down into park, fortunately we'd already unhooked the tow car. Park on dirty sand. Grass is brown and sparse. We paid $40 plus $2 for the dog. No Verizon cell service but Wi-Fi was excellent. Needed electricity for the night so we stopped here instead of the nearby state park. Probably would avoid in the future. - NancyB

The only thing that saved this park was its proximity to the beach. The sites are uneven and very rustic. The Wi-Fi sporadic and slow. Worst of all, there is only one bathroom, which was located a long ways away from our site (approximately three city blocks). AND the showers were pay-per-use. Unacceptable for a park that charges $40.00/night. Many full timers simply let their dogs loose to do their daily "duty" on the beach or at other sites. We will not stay there again. - MysticRaven

Beautiful park near the ocean, many private sites with trees and shade. The budget crisis in CA has shut down many state parks for part of the year with certain areas of these parks affected adversely. This is still a lovely park with a great location. Not too far from the super scenic village of Mendocino. We made do for three days and 2 nights without electricity and hook-ups. Some trails do not allow dogs, others do. - gemsinger

Site #20 is in the wooded area and doesn't get much sun. Probably would not stay here again as we like to have electrical/water/sewer hook-ups. Park needs maintenance but California is "broke" so funds for upkeep are in short supply. Park is close to the town of Mendocino and Fort Bragg. - Suddjian

What a gorgeous park! There are two trails that start in the campground that are nice. Across Highway 1 is the beach - camping is available in the parking lot there for one night only. Most of the sites are shaded and quite large. The showers are not free - but they are clean. Wi-Fi is available through AT&T in the Visitors Center parking lot only. The campground is located a couple of miles from Mendocino - a beautiful city. We would definitely stay here again. - lttldee

Don't know exact number of sites but we were in site 23. Densely foliage and in a deep ravine so no AT&T cell coverage. Maximum RV length of 24 ft due to very tight access. Clean but old facilities. Picturesque cove under the Hwy 1 bridge accesses through the campground. - Thunderboldt

We stayed 6 days. Our group consisted of six RVs and one tent camper. The tent site was spacious and somewhat secluded. RV sites were barely large enough for RVs. Almost all surfaces are dirt. Park staff did not assist with parking unless requested. We observed at least 4 units that collided with site markers, a fire pit, and a fence. Getting into many sites requires multiple spotters. Large motor homes created a challenge for all but the most accessible sites, and very skillful drivers.
Utilities were functional but in need of repair or upgrades. Threads stripped on the sewage attachment. Weight required on sewage hose to prevent leakage.
Our electrical box was rusted from sitting in puddles created by leaking faucets. Voltage dropped to 104 volts when the park was full. No one in our group had problems with incorrect or faulty wiring or high voltage. Use a surge (and low voltage) protector and ensure circuit breakers are open when making connections.
The campground store was very well stocked with food, camping supplies, and RV supplies. Prices were reasonable. Staff was friendly and helpful.
The name RV Park and Campground is very accurate. This is not an RV resort but a campground that accommodates RVs. There is ocean access across the street in easy walking distance. Scuba divers, abalone divers, snorkelers, kayakers, and surfers can all access the ocean by walking from the campground. The store rents good quality kayaks. The campground is very busy, active and noisy during the day. Nights are quiet and staff will enforce quiet hours if needed.
Mendocino is a short drive away. For Bragg is about 15 minutes away.
I will definitely stay here again. - cdouglas

We tent-camped here 20 years ago and loved the tent sites - secluded, private, very green, spacious. Beautiful. This time we were in a travel trailer and it wasn't so great. The vehicle camping area is incredibly crowded - it took the help of two other guys to get us into our VERY narrow space. We couldn't put out our awning because we were about 5' from our neighbor on one side and 8' on the other. No room for the picnic table, either. Fortunately, our neighbors were pleasant people who turned down the music when we asked. But camping in a parking lot is not what we had in mind. If our neighbors hadn't been so friendly, we wouldn't have had room for our truck - as it was, we had to park on the diagonal. The store is reasonably well stocked and the staff are very friendly. We love that you can walk to the beach in five minutes and drive to Mendocino or Ft. Bragg in ten. But we probably won't be back - it looked like our local RV dealer's parking lot. Highly recommended for tenters, though - you won't find a nicer place. - MargaretB

Stay away from this place!! It's the worse RV park we've ever been to and we've been to many.
We were so close to our neighbors that our slides couldn't open full!!!!! (We have 5th wheel 3 slides).
The bathrooms showers are what you'll expect to have on a beach, there's nothing of a "resort" in this place.
This cannot be a good Sam Club RV park, we thought we could trust it but it's really bad. It's all dirt and sand, their entrance is looking nice with grass and flowers but the park is run down. - MikeMayNaama

Very remote -- this is really like boondocking. No facilities at all. Six miles from Ft. Bragg, but it takes a really long time to get there, due to the bumpy narrow dirt access roads. Not a convenient place to stay if you want to be close to the tourist attractions of the Mendocino coast. Campsites are very large and spread out, sited under large second growth redwoods. Some sites have outhouses and trash barrels, but the best bet is to be self-contained. There are some picnic tables and firepits. Gathering downed wood is permitted. If you like silence and isolation, this is your place. Also, good mountain biking on the fire roads running through the forest. - Prof Dan

Very scary place to stay. We stayed one night and were up all night with heavy traffic in the park with people screaming at each other and fighting.
Restrooms and showers were not clean. Lots very close, sunny and open. Site surface was gravel. - ldireland

The park was beautiful. We looked the park up on the internet and read the reviews. They were not very good but the pictures looked beautiful. I called the office to get some more info on why the reviews were not so good. The lady at the front explained that they were under new management and had made several changes. So we decided to go a head a stay. I am so glad we did. The park was absolutely amazing. I think it is the only park in the entire area that sits in the redwoods. The place was clean. The people were extremely polite and helpful. We loved it. The price was extremely reasonable especially since we had 9 people. It was peaceful and the perfect campground. If we ever camp up north again it will definitely be at Wildwood. While we were there we drove around and saw the other campgrounds. Nothing was anywhere near Wildwood. None of the other places had the trees and made you feel like you were camping in the woods yet we were only 5 miles to town or the beach. It really was perfect. 250% recommend this place to everyone. Oh and our trailer is 31 ft and we feet with no issue at all. - rsimkins

DON'T camp here. Most of the park is taken up by permanent, very old, poorly maintained mobile homes. This place is a slum. We had no problem with the electricity or water, but the bathrooms are a disgrace. Every toilet is broken/wobbles. The floors and sinks haven't been maintained or cleaned in a long time, BUT the bathrooms are great compared to the showers which have no doors, are leaking, and are filthy. - cactuslady

We spent the weekend here with a small group of 5 rigs and a few tents. All that was good about our stay was being with friends. The campground had little to offer. Basically, there are a handful of pull-throughs for week enders. The rest of the place is occupied by permanent residents in "rigs" in various states of disrepair. The website shows a picture of Belinda Point, which is gorgeous. But, it's important to know that it's a 30-minute or so walk and there is no beach access. The site also refers to this place as one of Northern California's most beautiful RV parks and campgrounds. Not true. If you want to experience one of Northern California's best, head across Highway 1 to Pomo. (After our group left, that's exactly what we did.) - RockyandBullwinkle

This park is just off Hwy 20, about two miles from junction of Hwy 20 and Hwy 101. It comes up fast if you are coming in from Willletts. If you see the firewood place on the left, you have missed it and turning around anytime soon (especially if you are towing a dingy) can be problematic! The park has mostly longer term folks, but we stayed a week to explore the area and it was fine. Office folks are efficient and helpful and the showers and laundry facility are kept clean. They have room to park your boat and a facility on which to clean your fish, but I have not figured out what to do with the fish guts! There is only power and water. (No septic unless you happen to get or request that at a long term site.) There is a place to dump as you leave. There are also sites for tents. - Selway

Good overnight stop. Manager was very helpful. Park has a beautiful view of the Pacific. We had a pull-through site that sloped quite a bit and we had difficulty leveling our rig. Needed to run it up on front blocks to get near level. There were several folks here that came regularly, and other sites did not appear to have the degree of slope ours did. - JP and P from Florida

Older, smaller park. Lots of permanent residents. Office was closed when we arrived mid-afternoon. Went to office next day to pay and was told they are no longer members of Good Sam (made reservations 5 days earlier). Also not told they charge per day for electric at site. Site was large enough marginally and small side to side. Would not stay here again due to their lack of honesty and not informing me of paying a daily rate plus electric. - AntiqFreq

Snagged a Friday nite without reservation. Friendly service, cash only, large site with full hookups. Most sites shielded on 3 sides with trees and shrubs. Cable TV. Definitely stay again if driving through. - smitty12

We've stayed here several times, both in a Class A motorhome and in tents. We love this place! The RV spaces are large and private separated by very tall hedges and trees. Each has a patio with picnic table and BBQ pit-campfire ring. The tent circle is separated from the RVs, down a small slope, very grassy, with tall hedges and trees. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring, but on our last visit, we didn't have a grill for cooking so had to borrow one. The bathrooms and showers are up the slope and across the lawn, so they could be closer, but the tent area is beautiful without them. Handy to town, decent store on site, friendly people, but forget about using a credit card - you pay your deposit by check. We've been here four times and will be back again. - MargaretB

Very clean facilities in a great location. Although there is not beach access, everything is close. Sites are a bit small, some more so than others, but are private. - Good Witch

Spaces are very tight. There were no open places to throw frisbees or play catch. I have no idea why it was necessary to have workers with leaf blowers churning up dust and tree needles in a forest!!! They were loud and choked up the air. It made no sense. It was difficult to manuever our 31' rig. Because we had a handicap spot, we had electricity. The rest of the sites have nothing. There were plenty of trash bins which was nice. But we won't return--it was cheek to jowl. - toccata

This park is absolutely beautiful. Deep in the redwoods and in the midst of some of the best wine country in the world. - KathyL
