Close to the ocean at Jenner. Campground is next to the Russian River. Family activities and games for kids (playground, volleyball). Some shaded site, a mix of sunny locations and partial shade. Full RV hook ups and tent sites. River access for swimming & boating. No sandy beach.
Very popular campground for families and families with dogs. In the summer months it seems to be very busy. They have a lot of activities for the kids. Most sites are close to each other which makes for early mornings/late nights.
A few friends and I recently spent 4 days camping at this beautiful ranch right outside of Duncan Mills and absolutely loved our stay. We spent much time swimming in the river, playing on the basketball court and hanging out at camp. The site was extremely clean and well set up, the staff was friendly and helpful and the natural beauty that surrounds the area was more than exceptional. Not to mention, there are a few places just outside of the ranch that has great food and live music, definitely worth checking out!
My only complaint would be regarding the lack of wifi. I suppose it's nice to get away from it all, it truly is, but I needed to respond to a few work emails as well as calls and the wifi/reception was nowhere to be found. Again, I'm not truly complaining about this but it's worth noting for those that may have business to handle while taking a getaway.
Casini Ranch is a great campground, right off the river. You can kayak down the river and the campgrounds have a big variety of sizes, some on and off the river.
This privately owned campground has a fully stocked store, showers, and even a movie room. The campsites closer to the river all feel pretty private due to lots of vegetation separating each space—like thick walls of green. Be aware that a lot of this vegetation is poison oak, but they keep it trimmed back!
We had a spot that looked out at the river. It was beautiful. More exposed/ not as shaded as other spots, so I’m glad it wasn’t a hot weekend. Since it wasn’t hot, there weren’t as many folks accessing the river, so it stayed pretty peaceful. Could imagine it getting busy during peak summer weather.
Watched osprey and herons fly by, and even saw a river otter!
I would certainly return.
This campground is on Russian river. They have full hook ups and a lot of very cool sites. They have an insane amount of kids activities! Face paining, s’mores campfire, hay ride, parks, kareoke- just to name a few! Easily one of our fav campgrounds!
