@nckwltn asked about sites in Mendocino National Forest in Northern California. @Dylan Pankow is a great resource, and his channel is probably the comprehensive on Youtube when it comes to Mendocino NF.

A few of my favorite spots for camping include (not sure what some of the conditions are post-burn:

  • Simpson Camp / 39.76588, -122.90068
  • Skunk Rock / 39.72006, -123.05316
  • m1 corridor north of Hull Mountain (so many great spots along this stretch!)
  • Eel River -- not sure if the gate below Lake Pills is currently open / 39.40749, -122.9898
  • M6 Game reserve on eel river headwaters / 39.52582, -122.85188
  • Anthony Peak (if you're in a van >> wind! ).

You can check out skunk rock at 3:10 in this video >> Get Lost with Brooks in Mendocino NF
