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 into a secluded 1/2-mile-long beach know as Anchor Bay Beach.

About a 3-hour drive from San Francisco, the campground is a very popular location and is often filled 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 30 overnight camping sites with 5 in the redwoods and 25 in the main campground. Every site can be a tent site. (See the Map). Each camp site has a water hook up, picnic table, and fire pit. Some sites have electricity and one with a sewer hookup, refer to our Rate Sheet for pricing, site utilities, and largest sized camper allowed in each site.

Our restrooms are open 24/7, have flush toilets, hot and cold-water sinks, and a few electrical outlets for beautification. Next to the restrooms are the hot water coin operated showers priced at $1.50 for the first 5 minutes (6 quarters) any additional quarters will give you @ a minute and 15 seconds more per quarter. Our campground has a septic dump station, a recreation area with an instant hot water double panned sink 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.

On the bluff that overlooks Anchor Bay campground and the beach, connected by a short trail from the campground, is Anchor Bay Village, which provides for most of our campers’ 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 one restaurant The Thai Kitchen. There is also a coin-op laundry mat, yoga studio, hair salon, and massage therapist.
