Pull thru and backin sites on a slight grade with majestic views of the rugged Northern California Coastline. Sites have picnic tables and the office has a small store with supplies. There is a restaurant on site with tasty fried and specialty foods (popular for tourists coming to the area too).
Access to this park is via the very windy and narrow two-lane road from the Benbow Area. Novice RV drivers or those not sure about their abilities should not try this route. There are numerous switchbacks, hairpins and steep elevation changes. Call ahead to local chambers of commerce or the park for current road conditions. Although big rigs can fit in the park you are, frankly, better off not taking a large coach or trailer out to this destination. The final decent is via a long and extremely steep decent.
The Cape Mendocino Lighthouse, inactive, is located in a lot just across the road from the campground. There is a black sand beach located on the northern side of Shelter Cove.
