Albion River Campground sits along the mouth of the Albion River. It's next to the lofty wooden truss structure supporting the Albion River Bridge that crosses Highway 1. The campground caters to RV camping with partial to full RV hookups available, including WiFi, for all of the 117 campsites. Tent and car camping is also available, but the fee is the same regardless of whether you have an RV, car or tent. The campground layout is split into 4 groups: A, B, C, D. The A group with full RV hookups is nestled against a Eucalyptus covered hillside and offers a bit more privacy. Showers are provided in the camp restrooms. Two boat launches are are available for on-site use, as is a fish cleaning station. The Flats Café, a wonderful campground amenity, shares space with the campground office. Try the corned beef hash. It's fantastic.

A tidal river opens to the ocean at Albion Cove. The Albion River is a designated recreation river and a beautiful stretch of water to explore in a kayak, canoe or by stand-up paddleboard. The campground is one of only two sites along the Mendocino coast that provides both ocean access and a protected river moorage, and kayak and canoe rentals are available from the campground. As such, it’s a popular campground with fisherman, abalone divers, kayakers, and canoers. The campground is busiest on weekends between April and September, so consider a trip during the fall or winter if you want to avoid crowds.
