  • Highway 20 between Willits and Fort Bragg winds thru Jackson State Forest. A beautiful ride, though a lot of twists and turns which could cause some folks to get car sick. Plenty of places to...  more »
  • Found an AMAZING, SECLUDED CAMPSITE. Tons of firewood that a previous camper had left to burn in the fire ring. Tons of room for everything, enough room to ride our bikes around the campsite. There is a tiny, shallow river that runs on the side of the spot. You're completely surrounded by the gentle, giant redwoods. Somewhat newly built cedar outhouse. One of my favorite campsites ever, will be back👍
  • This place is beautiful, wonderful and awesome. If you like nature and outdoors and trees then this is the place for you. The redwoods are amazing to walk amongst on any of the trails. The camping is great but primitive and it costs about 15 per night. Cash paid at the site. No online options. They may accept checks too. There's a river to cool off in and lots of turn outs on the 20 to take a rest or stop to hike a bit. It's not as hot as it is if your coming from the East but not as cold if you're coming from the West. It's a great trip on your way to the beach at Fort Bragg. There's lots to see and do in the forest.
