RV Parks & Campgrounds on the Mendocino, California Coast
The Mendocino coastline spans far beyond the small town of Mendocino and the Mendocino Bay. The coastline area is actually named for the stretch of shoreline bordering the county of Mendocino, which extends as far north as Rockport and as far south as Manchester. Along this stretch of stunning coastline sit some of the most beautifully situated RV parks in all of California.

Russian Gulch State Park

Russian Gulch State Park is the closest campground to the Mendocino Bay that also allows campers. The campground is open only in summer months, generally between May and September. The massive park goes from the beach to the backwoods of the Russian Gulch Creek Canyon, making for amazing hiking and biking experiences. Other popular activities include fishing, swimming, scuba diving and horseback riding. Don't miss the chance to explore the collapsed sea cave known as the Devil's Punch Bowl.

All types of camping are available in the park, including group camping, trailers, campers, tents and campsites accessible via hiking and biking only. Showers, restrooms and picnic tables are available.
