Welcome to Anchor Bay Campground!

Family Camping Since 1925


Anchor Bay Campground is a small, six-acre privately-owned campground located right on the Pacific Ocean along Mendocino County’s scenic Highway One. Situated in a narrow gulch filled with native redwood trees, ferns, and coastal flora, it opens up into the secluded 1/2-mile-long Anchor Bay Beach.

About a 3-hour drive from San Francisco, the campground is a very popular location and is often filled to capacity on weekends, during the summer season, and on holidays. Even when it’s busy, it’s always quiet, peaceful, and family-oriented. A lot of our customers say Anchor Bay is their favorite getaway destination. Our close-knit, respectful community promotes a warm, relaxed, and friendly stay for all our guests.

Anchor Bay Campground is also a favorite spot for fishermen, beach combers, divers, and ocean enthusiasts. There are many wonderful opportunities to explore marine life during low tide. Check out our Things To Do!

We have 27 overnight camping spots (4 in the redwoods and 23 at or on the beach) and 40 owned spots (See the Map). Each camp spot has a water hook up, picnic table, and fire pit. Some sites have electricity and/or sewer dump, refer to our Rate Sheet for pricing, spot utilities, and largest sized camper allowed in each spot.

Our restrooms have showers (coin-op), flush toilets, hot water, and electrical outlets. Our campground also has a septic dump station, and a recreation area with sinks and picnic tables. The fish house is available to clean fish or crab, and to wash down wet suits.

We sell ice, bait, firewood, and apparel at the campground office. For reservations, please visit our Reservation page.

On the bluff that overlooks the beach, connected by a short trail from the campground, is Anchor Bay Village, which provides for most of our camper’s needs. Anchor Bay Village features the Anchor Bay Store (an organic-based grocery store), The White Cap Cafe (a local favorite that offers coffee and pastries), and eateries including a Thai restaurant and a Mexican restaurant. There is also a coin-op laundry mat, yoga studio, hair salon, and massage therapist.
