19 RV Parks near Fort Bragg, California
Sep 2013 - $15.00
Very remote -- this is really like boondocking. No facilities at all. Six miles from Ft. Bragg, but it takes a really long time to get there, due to the bumpy narrow dirt access roads. Not a convenient place to stay if you want to be close to the tourist attractions of the Mendocino coast. Campsites are very large and spread out, sited under large second growth redwoods. Some sites have outhouses and trash barrels, but the best bet is to be self-contained. There are some picnic tables and firepits. Gathering downed wood is permitted. If you like silence and isolation, this is your place. Also, good mountain biking on the fire roads running through the forest. - Prof Dan

We stumbled on this one on our way Southbound down the Pac Coast Highway, from Rockport. We did a drive through, and fell in love with a spot ridiculously close to a fabulous sandy ocean beach. Even at this OFF time, and a Monday night, the other choice spots were mostly reserved. We spent the day on the beach, and had it to ourselves about half the time. It's a huge, level, sandy beach,......and then we watched the sunset from our spot. It's pretty amazing to be so close to gorgeous beach , and to have the power that my wife insists on for these cooler Fall evenings. Verizon signal spotty, but workable from our spot, and I was able to make a call from the beach. The WIFI is surprisingly GREAT, but remember........the park is probably at 10% occupancy. Dirt roads into and in the park a bit sketchy, but heh,......you're on the ocean. Sites pretty lumpy and undeveloped,......near level.........you're going to spend all your time at the beach anyway! - Diesel24J

Great location down by the beach. we had a nice sunny site. The services are common between the sites which was a bit awkward for us, so it would be a good question to ask when you check in. - Raymond B

Lovely campsites with a short, easy walk to a beautiful beach. We could see the ocean from our site. Lots of dogs and kids in the park. Steep, narrow entrance into the park. The RV sites are gravel but with some dirt and growth, and since it rained during our stay, our site was a little muddy. Very nice park staff. - Rusty_C

We camped at Standish-Hickey on July 7, 8, and 9. The large trees provide a lot of shade, and we had fun swimming in the river. The camp rangers hosted nature programs and hikes on the weekends. For example, the Saturday night we were there, they had stuff for making S'mores, and the kids were able to do leaf-pressing as she taught us about the trees at the park. The showers were ok but required 4 or 5 quarters to get a shower. Now the downside: there were a group of people camping right across from us that were using vulgar language, and playing loud music (some of which had expletive language), even after the 10:00 quiet hour. We asked them to quiet down, to stop using the F-bomb every 30 seconds, etc., but our requests were ignored. These people essentially told us "you can call who you want, but no one is going to do anything". The rangers at the park told us that neither local peace officers or CA State Park Rangers patrol Standish-Hickey. - SteveWard

Stayed here on 12/3 for one night. Park was clean, had my reservation on the front kiosk. All was good. Park rangers came by around 4:30, always like seeing that. Not much to do here. Hwy on north side, fenced in on the east side, and steep cliff on the west. Didn't have a lot of time to adventure, but I am sure there has to be something to do. VERY VERY noisy in sites 1-16. Trucks going up and down 101 all night. Best to chose sites in the 20 or 30's but I am sure its still pretty loud. If peace and quiet is what you want this aint the place. Clean place. no At&T Cell service but Face book page said others service providers work, Stay in the sites farthest away from hwy. Bathrooms were very clean. Had power outlets for hairdrying. Had a sink for dishes outside, and coin operated showers. - FastCletus

CA state park. Dry camping. Pricing varies $25 near Hwy, $35 Upper Loops and $45 across the river, summer only, tents and small campers. State Park run by a non-profit organization (MAPA). Very clean park and friendly staff. Lots of hiking trails and a swimming hole on the Eel river in the Redwoods. - slewis95407

Stayed here weekend before the 4th. Very crowded with many sites doubling up with friends. Dusty dirt roads. Lots of late night partying. Voltage is low could barely use our microwave. Could not use A/C due to lack of power. Would not give us the Good Sam discount due to prime time. It's a good location and we needed it so we stayed. If you're into camping under the giant redwoods this is OK. Close to the south end of the Ave of the Giants scenic drive. - KyDan

Rustic camping among the redwoods Check in slow , wifi slow , no cell phone coverage. - Anon2690

You'll camp beneath the redwoods. This isn't a large park, but it does accommodate campsites, motorhome sites, trailers, rental cottages and lodge rooms. This is an older park that is hard to locate. It attracts family gatherings and is more rustic than modern. The staff are friendly and helpful. The swimming pool was packed with kids having a great time as was kids at "Fort McCaffison", an elaborate, 2-story fortress-playground. There is no off-leash dog area, but there is plenty of wooded areas to walk your dog. The sites are large. On one side of the park you'll get some road noise from scenic 101, on the other you'll be where the cliff drops hundreds of yards to the river (there's a fence behind the RV sites). The "350" yard trail to the river is steep. It wasn't going down that worried me as much as struggling back up. Near the park is a mostly paved road that goes to the river the locals can direct you to. The Pub is small and cozy with friendly campers hanging out. We started out staying for two days and decided to lay back under the redwoods for an extra day. - Bobshoe

We had one rv site and 4 tent sites for our family reunion. The rv sites were stacked side by side. Our neighbor had to bring in their awning so we could extend our slide out. The sites were uncomfortably close together. The only reason I didn't rate this with less stars is because the tent area was spacious and beautiful which made it bearable for us not having spent much time at our site. Our site was next to a bridge that went over a creek to the tent sites which was quite whimsical. For the tent goers it was very inconvenient. They had to walk over the bridge and through people's campsites to use the restroom (and remember the sites are tiny). The campground also charged for showers which is the first I've heard of in my 39 years of camping. The office is a mess! The right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. Getting them to answer a call was a challenge in itself and, if I left a voicemail ,they never called me back. Every time I spoke with someone I got a different answer than from the last person. We had 26 people camping and they could not guarantee the sites we specifically wanted unless they were all in my name and I paid for them all upon arrival. I asked if the day before I could put each site in someone else's name and they would pay upon arrival. I was told yes and then when I called they said no. Then we extended the stay on the 2nd day for one of the sites and apparently they did not properly record it on their end and wanted to recharge me. When I challenged this they reviewed their records from the previous day and found the transaction after 20 mins of standing there. Find another rv park. - Anavisca

This place is no where near worth $45. We were going to stay 3 days and told them we needed to leave and they said ok. You only get 30 amps. Girl told my DH we could check out at 2pm. Guy on golf cart came by at 1:30 and said I am going to charge you another day, you are suppose to be out at 12noon. We explained and he didn't care, told us to get going as someone else desired our space. There were 14 spaces open on each side of us but these people wanted ours cause we had a newer picnic tab. Nothing between spaces, no grass, no concrete....all dirt. They show picture on website but I think it is a picture they found on the website and use as there is no place even close to it. They tell you that you can use the beach and dogs are allowed on it but you have to hike uphill through the whole RV park, past the fish cleaning station, past the office, cross the main road and then to the beach. Almost impossible to navigate getting out of space. You have to come within a matchbook of hitting the permanent residents picket fence to turn out and clear the fire ring, picnic table and garbage cans. Our slides when open were literately 7 inches from our neighbors slide, my DH measured it. - Victoria Grace

We stayed 6 days. Our group consisted of six RVs and one tent camper. The tent site was spacious and somewhat secluded. RV sites were barely large enough for RVs. Almost all surfaces are dirt. Park staff did not assist with parking unless requested. We observed at least 4 units that collided with site markers, a fire pit, and a fence. Getting into many sites requires multiple spotters. Large motor homes created a challenge for all but the most accessible sites, and very skillful drivers.
Utilities were functional but in need of repair or upgrades. Threads stripped on the sewage attachment. Weight required on sewage hose to prevent leakage.
Our electrical box was rusted from sitting in puddles created by leaking faucets. Voltage dropped to 104 volts when the park was full. No one in our group had problems with incorrect or faulty wiring or high voltage. Use a surge (and low voltage) protector and ensure circuit breakers are open when making connections.
The campground store was very well stocked with food, camping supplies, and RV supplies. Prices were reasonable. Staff was friendly and helpful.
The name RV Park and Campground is very accurate. This is not an RV resort but a campground that accommodates RVs. There is ocean access across the street in easy walking distance. Scuba divers, abalone divers, snorkelers, kayakers, and surfers can all access the ocean by walking from the campground. The store rents good quality kayaks. The campground is very busy, active and noisy during the day. Nights are quiet and staff will enforce quiet hours if needed.
Mendocino is a short drive away. For Bragg is about 15 minutes away.
I will definitely stay here again. - cdouglas

Don't know exact number of sites but we were in site 23. Densely foliage and in a deep ravine so no AT&T cell coverage. Maximum RV length of 24 ft due to very tight access. Clean but old facilities. Picturesque cove under the Hwy 1 bridge accesses through the campground. - Thunderboldt

Full 30 amp hookups. owner very friendly. ducks in pond were entertaining. OK for 1 nite no need to disconnect. other than site 1 at top of hill all have small ditches that you have to go thru to get in and out. Front of MH hit going in. Can be hard to get back out on 101 due to heavy fast traffic but there is a shoulder u can use. - rvreviews

We enjoyed our 3-night stay here. Our site was closest to the entrance, mostly sunny, nice long pull-through, gravel, slightly unleveled, and with FHU. As it was the outer site (don't know the number), we had the most open space with view of grass and trees and road (which didn't bother us). It's a very small, rustic park with nice fenced pond for the friendly ducks. Bathrooms were closed for renovations. We found the park to be clean and quiet. We called for reservations and our spot was reserved with an orange cone with our names on it. When we arrived, no one was there (owners work f/t) but there were directions on the office window and registration forms as well. The owners don't always answer the phone but they always returned our call on time and very friendly. Wifi was poor if at all. As we like to get out for exercise and the park is off a major road, we were pleased to find a road left of the entrance that lead up to what felt like a forever hill which got your heart pumping. We would stay here again. - Martidon

We stayed here primarily because it was inexpensive, but other than a safe, fairly quiet place to stay, there is nothing here. The owner is very nice, and there is a cute pond next to our site filled with friendly, quacking ducks. There was 30 amp and a pullthrough and sewer, but no tv stations on the antenna. Wifi was very poor, kept dropping us and it took a long time to get a satellite due to all the trees, but we did get it. The pond was pretty, but the frogs and ducks were loud in the night. We were parked on the highest site next to the pond, and it looked as though it hadn't been mowed or weedeated all year. Our site was also very wet and "poopy" from the ducks. I think the pond must leak because it was quite wet. It was not too bad getting in or out, but as someone else said, you have to look for the sign. Our GPS did take us right to the park. - Ginny H

It is a place when you need a place. Many families live here full time, low income, victims of foreclosure and the bad economy. It has all the hookups water, utilities everything you need to take care of you and yours. Nothing fancy but it works. - Smoow

The owners are friendly and helped us back into our site located between two rusting ancient storage trailers. That is the only positive thing at this campground. It is really a place where people live, not for "campers" or overnight stays. It is filthy dirty. There is junk everywhere. We were placed in a site next to a huge mercury lamp that shown all night. The showers were so awful I wouldn't bathe my dogs in them. We arrived in the dark and left first thing in the morning. - lccnm

We called in advance and we were greeted with friendly young lady. She asked us about our rig and explained that there had been several people who drove in past the sign saying that there was no room for big rigs. We did not have that. They explained that they get very few over nighters, we enjoyed out stay (especially the price). Managers had a big Bonfire and the eclectic group of Berkeley types were a joy and it was a must experience night. Thank you for having our site number ready on the door and everything waiting for us. Being Willets, we were grateful to have such a wonderful inexpensive park with great heated bathrooms - drode
