If you are interested in tiny houses, you are more than likely also interested in the classic canvas camping tent. These heavy duty, historical structures are becoming more popular all the time for lightweight airy living. If you want to try one out (and happen to be in Northern California) a brand new campground featuring the roomy, white tents has opened up to the public.
Mendocino Grove is a new campground featuring classic safari tents.
Mendocino Grove is located on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean and includes 37 acres of forested land dotted with 60 safari-style tents that can fit couples or larger families. Several of the tents are also wheelchair accessible. Each tent is erected on a wooden platform and features comfortable beds, down comforters, wool blankets, and lanterns to keep away the ocean’s chill.
Each tent is built on a wooden platform that extends its living space.
The tents all have comfortable beds, lighting, seating and places to store clothing.
The tents and the decks also feature leather patio chairs, wood stump tables and storage containers to keep clothing. Each campsite also features a picnic table and fire ring for outdoor cooking. The tents don’t have bathrooms, but the campground has a bathroom and shower facility nearby with organic EO bath products and towels.
Mendocino Grove guests have access to showers and bathrooms near the tents.
With a wide range of amazing amenities, this is not your average campground. Mendocino Grove features a common area with a large deck, string lights and a group campfire ring for late night storytelling. Yoga classes and complimentary guided hikes are also available. In addition, there is also a complimentary outdoor breakfast bar with local coffee from Fort Bragg, yogurt and granola. Firewood and s’mores packets are available for purchase, and for an extra $20 a night you can bring your pooch.

Mendocino Grove encourages group trips or special events like weddings or family retreats. The nearby town of Mendocino also offers a multitude of activities such as kayaking, hiking and dining. The campground tents range from $145 to about $260 per night depending on the size of tent and whether or not you want a forest or bluff view.
