Excellent state park with beautiful walking/hiking trails along the ocean bluffs. Play in the ocean waves, go tidepooling (make sure you watch the ocean so you don't get swept away!), and participate in the many activities led by the park rangers.
Tent and RV campsites, bike trails, fishing, horseback riding trails, nature trails, scubadiving, swimming, Park Ranger led camp programs, picnic areas, flush toilets, hot showers & Wi-Fi access.
There are two ways to go. Camping is wonderful. The coastal redwoods drop right into the sea so staying within them is like staying in the 5-star resorts of camp grounds!! Most of the state parks have great facilities with clean restrooms, semi-private sites and paved roads to keep the dust down. This is a photo of Russian Gulch....the same campground where I suggested a day hike into the forest. It also has terrific beach access and is centrally located between Fort Bragg and Mendo.
But there are also countless B&Bs that are beautiful and full of victorian charm.
At first glance this is a very plain looking RV park. However, the location is right on the ocean at the harbor entrance in Fort Bragg giving it a very good view of the ocean. There are no trees or tent sites, but it is far enough away from the main road to be quiet. Between the RV park and the ocean is a small public park with a walking trail along the cliff edge.
The sites are flat and have full hookups. I would recommend this RV park to anyone looking for the basics at a reasonable price and who won't miss having a few trees around.
They have great views, a fish cleaning station, and wireless internet. There is an extra charge for the key to the toilet and showers. There is no pool or laundry.
Arriving in Ft. Bragg after dark, I drove around the community for awhile to get a sense of what accommodation offerings were available. The Tradewinds is a mid-priced motel offering clean rooms and a pretty good Denny's-like restaurant on the premises.
They advertise that they have free wireless Internet. While this is true, the service seemed to be somewhat spotty, with the signal cutting out on a periodic basis.
There's a fairly large pool in the center of the property but we did not try it.
