18 Parks near Mendocino, California

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

Every site has trees and shrubs on 3 sides, giving lots of privacy. Sites are large. Roads in the park are paved, but sites are gravel. All sites have a picnic table and fire ring. There's a large grassy area in the center of the park for walking dogs, or playing games. Two negatives: no credit cards, and the showers are coin operated. Also, most cell phones don't get a signal in the park. We were told that happens in town as well. There's a great dog park in town at the Community Center. - ta96silver

This is a nice campground. While we were there, some construction/improvement projects were underway around the restrooms & the group meeting building. Lovely lawn area with flowers. The sites are well laid out with plenty of room for big rigs. Shrubbery around the sites provides privacy. I did find the "no bicycles" rule a bit odd & not family friendly but that was the only rule that I haven't seen before. Restrooms were nice & clean. Since there is a cost & we are self-contained, I didn't use the showers. From this location, we took a day trip north on highway 1. We were in site 2. Sites 46 - 53 looked the best. - 2togoNebraska

A wonderful, beautiful park! Extremely roomy sites. Very private (each one has a hedge around it). Staff is attentive and family run. Very clean. Laundromat has all new machines. Good patrol but not intrusive. Because the park is older there are tall trees, so if you need satellite ask for it ahead of time. The WiFi is good when the park isn't full, and Verizon & AT&T are good as well. - Nana Montana

Stayed here in a 50A pull through FHU. Nice site among trees, good utilities. Staff constantly cleaning up, a neat facility.
We found no Verizon data coverage) not even with booster), no AT&T except could get barely useable phone or data with cellphone booster most of the time. Wifi was one of those use for 100mb or one hour, then cut off for four; speed ok but not fast. Wearing after a few days. - SW Rick

We stayed at the KOA Manchester Beach after dry camping two nights at Stillwater Cove SP (wonderful spot) so wanted hookups and services for a few days. Very friendly and helpful staff, easy checkin. They let us pick our spot; the park was virtually empty on a mid-week March day.
We enjoyed how this KOA was much more "natural" than most - grass/gravel spots with large trees around and a good amount of separation between sites. We picked one of the "premium" 50A full-hook up sites in the back, (believe it was 90 as noted below but not sure). The 30A pull throughs looked a little close together by comparison but were nice being in the trees.
They went above and beyond with service; both evenings we stopped at the office for firewood which they quickly delivered to our site in their golf cart.
Did not use the facilities/showers/pool/kitchen, but enjoyed a fire each night and watching the stars and moon among the tree branches. - brucemcdou

This is a pretty nice campground for a KOA. It's spacious, has a nice big dog run, various levels of service to choose from ranging from tent only sites to FHU's. It's overpriced IMHO like most KOA's (obviously, I don't have a high opinion of KOA's), but at least it's nice. There are a bunch of "amenities" like bocce, horseshoes, volleyball, playgrounds, pool & hot tub etc. Probably a pretty nice place for families to camp...lots for the kids to do. There is a trail to the beach but we didn't take it. We were here on a Monday night in June and there were tons of spaces available. Price includes $3 extra for the little dog. What's with California charging extra everywhere for the dogs? - Pdxjoanne

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

Definitely should look at the spaces before you book. They are VERY close together. There is no vehicle discipline in the park. There were so many vehicles parked on the street we couldn't back in. We had to move to Wesport, sister site to Casper. They told us they would refund our money for Casper but of course they didn't. I would never stay here again. - Big Og

We stayed here because it has access to Caspar Beach. W&E sites were very short with bark mulch base. We felt our 24' MH wouldn't fit or be level so we had to upgrade to a full hookup site. A substitute person was at registration. She was friendly but didn't seem to know what she was doing. They are "dog friendly" but charge per dog. It must be to pay for all of the poo bag stations. Sites were very close together. I'm glad it was mid-week and off season. This park only gets a 6 because of the neighbouring beach. We won't stay here again. - Thedogsma

We also stayed at the sister park, Casper. It seems a little tacky to add a pay shower for such high prices to camp for the night but that's the price to pay for facilities along the coast. Great locations for both places. Camp host was responsive when we noticed a camper not picking up after his dog.
We don't have a tow vehicle. - CaptainHuck

We loved it here so much we extended our stay! Nice store, clean restrooms, laundry facilities available. Fire ring and picnic table at site. The best part for us, though was being steps away from a very nice beach and the ocean. Every morning we could go out with our coffee and find abalone shell pieces.
The campground itself was very clean and the sites were spacious. The managers are the best! Fun and friendly! We would love, love, love to go back! - clhamann1

Park is about 20 miles north of Ft. Bragg off Hiway 1 in a cove with ocean access. Sites are level and nicely sized. Some shrubs separate campsite providing a bit of privacy. Water and electric hookups worked fine. Wifi only works by the office but they provide a nice covered picnic table for wifi users. Beach is nice, but full of campers. There is a small store nearby with good sandwiches but campers are advised to bring all supplies with you as its a hard drive into town. Overpriced for what you get. - Big Og

Our truck broke down and were greeted by friendly staff who allowed our Travel Trailer to be towed in and parked while we got our truck repaired (3 days, busy holiday travel time). It was a very stressful time for us and the kind of service and the site they put us in was much appreciated. We were stuck with no transportation and so got to really enjoy the park. There is definitely a lot to do here. We took a nice walk up to & around their fishing pond, visited their petting zoo, sat on the lounge chairs in the water park and relaxed to the peaceful sound of water falling down like a waterfall. We visited their old western village and pool. They offer a game room, fully stocked store, hot tubs, a great miniature golf course, multiple children's playgrounds, a dog playground, a basketball court, a volleyball court & horseshoes. They even offer a Zen garden & a Skunk Train depo. I rated 4 start for value only because I feel RV at parks have gotten almost as pricey as some nice motel resorts. And, if you do not have a KOA membership, then my site would have cost someone in the tune of $80. I gave a 4 star for cleanliness only because it would be nice if more gavel was on the roads to lay down the traffic dust that is constantly flowing & the lawns in the sites were half dead and not green. The amenities are fabulous though and sites are level. A great place for family gatherings. This KOA offers monthly events which I am looking forward to attending. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. I will be going back for sure. - RGETAWAY

What a great park for kids! There is a lot of fun things for them--petting zoo, amazing playground, splash pad, pool, fishing pond, and an outdoor old west area that looks like they show movies there. The park was really clean and easy to maneuver our 45 ft motorhome with tow. We stayed here one night and I would visit again. Note that many sites share a central area with neighbor. - Rbkranch

This KOA is way over priced for what you get. $62 for a very short un-level pull through is ridiculous. Most sites are water/electric, only a few of the pull through are full hookups.The site had the utilities grouped in the forward half and the cable had a total of 9 grainy channels. Site surface is gravel and out of level front to rear. Satellite reception will be iffy due to the heavy tree cover at all but a couple of sites. This KOA is more of a poor value than most. - lllkrob

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

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

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

This park is oceanfront with nice path leading to the ocean. Spaces are wide and park is clean. But no laundry?? (no clubhouse, no picnic table) Good location to get to Skunk Railroad and Mendocino. - Rosanne

No frills. A decent place to park while exploring the area. One nice thing about it is the close location to kayaking opportunities on the river, which is why we stayed here. - William Shaw

This park is next to Highway 1 near the bridge on the Ocean side and is not too bad. It has a park right behind it. It is adjacent to a trailer park which some people may not like but I thought the location was nice. We were in the row by the park so our back window looked out over the park and then over the ocean. When we arrived there was no one in the office; we had to wait 5-10 minutes for someone to show up. All hookups worked. They do have Wi-Fi and it worked. We would stay there again. - Nicole Cook
