This Might Just Be The Most Beautiful Campground In All Of Northern California

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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

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.
