First to Review
You feel farther away than you are.

This is a great campground in Mendocino NF. It's about an hour away from Willows, CA on I-5 but you feel like you're hours away from civilization. Campsites have pull-through's for trailers and back-in's for tent campers. The pit toilets are very clean, trash service is twice a week, and right now there is no water as there is a leak in the pipes they haven't been able to find. There are 2 ponds for fishing trout and the upper pond is usually stocked each year. The campsite #12 has a beautiful meadow behind it with deer that pass through. The downside for us is there isn't much nearby to do. A great place to spend a night or day or a great place if you're looking for quiet in nature. No reservations and I haven't ever seen this campground full. It does get busier around deer season with hunters.
