Mendocino National Forest opens more developed campgrounds

MENDOCINO NATIONAL FOREST, Calif. – The Mendocino National Forest will open more developed campgrounds on Tuesday, June 16.

“We continue to recommend that you recreate close to home,” said Mendocino National Forest Supervisor Ann Carlson. “All visitors should practice self-sufficiency during their visit to the Mendocino National Forest. Recreating responsibly will help ensure that expanded access to recreational facilities, services, and opportunities continues. All services may not be available, so please plan accordingly.”

While recreating on the Mendocino National Forest remember to maintain at least six feet from others, avoid gathering in groups, pack out your trash, and bring your own water, soap, sanitizer and toilet paper.

Please check the forest website and social media pages for the most up-to-date information on what is open so that you can plan your visit.

You can call the Supervisor’s Office at 530-934-3316 during regular business hours Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
