Nice and quiet campsite and just a 5 minute drive from the town
Very disappointing experience.
Only one shower (working ok) and one toilet for the whole camping, the others were out of order. Furthermore the hosts were unfriendly.
We don't recommend this campground and these owners.
Because we knew that we would be in late, we called the campground earlier in the day to find out which site we had. It took a few times for someone to pick up, but when we finally did get in touch with someone, the gentleman who answered was very nice and helpful. He gave us the easiest site to find and clear directions. The GPS took us to the correct address, so we were able to find the entrance without too much trouble; however, it wasn't the most clearly marked path. The campground, itself, was well kept and the scenery was beautiful. I'm sure that it's not usually a problem as the building with restrooms and showers was being renovated, but in the morning, the temporary porta-potty across from our site was blocked by a big truck that looked to be doing some kind of work for the grounds. We also could not find anyone around to check us out, so we just left. I'm sure that our circumstances just didn't provide for the ideal or average experience here. The location was perfect, right off of the 101 and we wish that we were more able to enjoy our stay here. Our experience was far from perfect, but we would try booking here again.
This campground was quiet and pretty, and made for a great jumping off point for Mendocino-area sites. Hosts gave us a heads up that facilities were out before we arrived, which was appreciated. Would come back -- especially if the water/toilet/shower situation is sorted out.
My host did not make me feel welcome. When I showed up i was informed there was no bathroom except a port o potty. There was also no water and I was also told I couldn't use my own firewood I had to pay for theirs. Who makes a rule like that? Uneducated business owners. There was no mention of any of these things. I tried to call the emergency number but I was informed it was a two hour wait. Who has time for that. Staying here ruined my trip and was nothing like described.
Site managers are not aware of airbnb instant book. When I arrived in was told they were full. Finally negotiated a site but no water, no toilets, no showers. Was told I needed to leave early for those who had "real" reservations. Overall a disappointment. Had I know this all, I would have made other arrangements. Won't be back, don't recommend.
We enjoyed the quiet in this campground. The site was spacious. The only problem which the host couldn't control is that there are no flush toilets or showers available due to the water shortage. So, there were portable toilets available which were okay. Some better than others. The hosts were welcoming and accommodating.
The hosts were friendly and gave us an upgrade to a beautiful campsite. They didn't mention no water or working toilets, so that was a bummer.
We were able to instantly book this campground four days before our arrival, but I did not have any communication with the host until the day before we arrived. I had left two messages through airbnb and a voicemail, but apparently the host had not received any reservation through airbnb. If she had not called me back, I don't know if we would have had a place to stay when we arrived. After we checked in, we had a little difficulty finding our site because the the number marker had been knocked down. We had asked for an ocean view, and she said she was able to give us a partial ocean view site. When we got to our site, there was no ocean view and we were disappointed we did not get the partial ocean view site at the empty campsite behind us. When we set up our tent, we found dog poop and trash around left from previous campers that had not been cleaned up. Other than the disappointing view, the campground was quiet and peaceful. The bathhouse and restrooms were not open due to drought restrictions, so port-a-potties were set up and a water jug was available to use at the outside sink for washing hands, etc.
