GRAY PINE GROUP CAMPGROUND
Adress: Elk Creek, California
OVERVIEW Perched 1,700 feet above sea level in the expanse of the Mendocino National Forest, the Gray Pine Group Camp is a beautiful recreation oasis for large groups and parties. RECREATION Mendocino National Forest's 913,306 acres of mountains and canyons offer a variety of recreational opportunities, including horseback riding, hiking, backpacking, boating, fishing and hunting, nature study and off-highway vehicle riding. Whether it's deer, birds, rabbits, chipmunks or perhaps the occasional bear, wildlife viewing is always a popular activity for visitors. The area is also an extremely popular destination during hunting season. FACILITIES Gray Pine Group Camp offers traditional camping and can hold up to 75 guests comfortably. NATURAL FEATURES The Mendocino National Forest, California's only national forest that is not crossed by a paved road, straddles the eastern spur of the Coastal Mountain Range in northwestern California, just a three-hour drive north of San Francisco and Sacramento. Sprinkled throughout the dense green forest are several lakes, offering visitors additional recreational opportunities against a stunning backdrop. NEARBY ATTRACTIONS Popular OHV riding trails are easily accessible from the campground. Visit www.fs.usda.gov/mendocino for more information.
