Mendocino National Forest is a treasure of Northern California. This forest is more remote than many in the state, making it less crowded and developed. It is situated between a huge agricultural area along Interstate 5, where a lot of almonds and other produce grow, and the redwood area along the coast. At over 900,000 acres, this national forest offers plenty of outdoor activities to keep you busy with hiking, camping, and exploring. Since it is such a vast area, traveling by RV means you cover many areas without having to focus on finding reservations in this remote wilderness full of fun.
