Best boondocking spot

Surrounded by the ocean and remote on BLM - even off the main road to the Lighthouse. We had the best view, privacy, sound and view of the ocean. We watched the sunset as the tide came in, enjoyed the seals and saw a fox swing by our camper. Dry camping but there are portable toilets. A bit…

Camp site along the way

This campground we happened upon as we had been traveling all day and it was starting to get late. It’s located right off the main road. There are three parts to the camp ground we stayed in the first section. It was clean, well kept. Each site had food boxes, a fire ring, and picnic table. The…

Beautiful campground by the sea

Excellent beach access, nice flat sites. Watch the videos, words can’t express the beauty here.

Love this place

I was very surprised by this campground. It was very quiet, well maintained with clean bathrooms and showers. There is an added bonus for all self contained vehicles. Since there's a temporary bridge in place, they are allowing self contained vehicles (potty in your vehicle) to stay at the beach…

Nice but rude staff

Nice place to camp. Very pretty. Not sure why we( and only us) weren't allowed to us the plug in for our RV. Very rude staff who work there.

Excellent find!

The land around the lighthouse is BLM land, and so the area along the road leading to the lighthouse is open to camping. There are several good pullouts along the road, and if those are taken, the parking lot outside the lighthouse is available as well. The parking lot filled up with vans and cars…

Hidden Gem Near Mendocino

Having camped in quite a few places throughout California, there's very few campgrounds that equal that of Van Damme State Park. Let me count the high marks that this location features: oceanfront access, spartan clean restroom and shower facilities, well-organized grounds, close proximity to…

Hope someone sees this

I’ve been camping cross country for the last month with my husband. We’re from New York, and like to think we’re not easily rattled or intimidated. This was the first time on our trip that we were both scared.

The forest service website says this campground is not open for camping, just dirt bike…

Not very nice

Run by Calfire and to be fair they likely have better things to do during fire season than maintain the campsites

Lots of trash piled up around the cans, sites were covered in loose trash including old rusted car parts. On the honor system for the pay box. Since rangers don’t come around much I…

Tight squeeze

This park has two parts: most is across the street from the lake but some spots are lakeside. The lakeside spots are very tight together-and require backing in. If your neighbor has a slider you are wall to wall. Nice outdoor table overlooking the lake, nice outdoor patio and they have kayaks you…

Beautiful Area!

We were in a group site, which was nice and spacious. Had some tree coverage too which we were very grateful for because it was quite warm. Trees also were great for our hammocks! Downside was that due to extreme fire danger and fires in the area, we were allowed to have fires of any kind. Only…

Cheap, right off road

This campsite was $20 a night. It has a good amount of sites. We got lucky getting in late on a Saturday and finding a spot. It is right off the road so you can hear it but not see it easily. Great spot for a quick stay for the night.
