The 37-acre property features 60 Safari-style tents (classic and family-size) outfitted with all the modern comforts and amenities. Think heated beds, down comforters, wool blankets, crisp cotton sheets, warm water bottles and lanterns. And each has a deck with leather chairs for relaxing and taking in the beauty of the forest. Every campsite also has a picnic table and pit for cooking and gathering by the fire. And of course there are s’mores —- they’ve also got kits and firewood for purchase.

On the property you’ll find deluxe bathrooms and showers stocked with plush towels and bath products. Meadow Commons is the communal area in the center with a large deck, tables, chairs, hammocks, string lights and a group campfire. Here you’ll find the bocce ball court, horse shoes, corn hole and other games. Other on-site activities include weekend yoga and a guided hike along the surrounding Fern Canyon Loop Trail. The campsite is also dog-friendly, and yes, there is wi-fi.

As for meals, you can bring your own, as there are gas barbeques and an area for food prep. The complimentary breakfast bar in the meadow serves coffee, tea, hot cocoa and light breakfast each morning. Or hop into town for a drink or bite—the village is a few minutes drive or 20-minute walk away.

There is no shortage of things to do in Mendocino. Wander the shops and galleries in town, head to the nearby vineyards for wine tasting, walk along the beaches, canoe down the river and kayak in the sea. Mendocino Grove is the perfect place to retreat at the end of the day. Reserve your tent before they’re all gone for the summer season.
