It’s so hard to pick the most beautiful place in Northern California where you can sleep outside overnight because there are so many outstanding contenders. We think the Mattole Campground in the Kings Range National Conservation Area hit’s the nail on the head, however. Misty redwood forests, the sound of waves crashing, and 360 degree views all make this a pretty stellar camping area.

To find the Mattole Campground at the north end of King Range at the beach, take U.S. 101 and the Garberville, South Fork/Honeydew, or Ferndale exits. Follow signs toward Petrolia, turn on Lighthouse Road toward ocean.
