Mendocino National Forest

Be sure to take in the beautiful Mendocino National Forest. It offers over 900,000 square miles of diverse stunning landscapes, with much of it located within Lake County. Several organized campgrounds and endless backcountry options are there for the taking. Of all 18 National Forests located in California, Mendocino is the only one free of paved roads, making it a more quite and less busy experience.
