Mount Madonna Valley View Campground #1 is one of four campgrounds located in Mount Madonna County Park. This campground offers spacious and somewhat private sites for your RV or tent with all the basic amenities. In contrast to Valley View Campgrounds #2 and #3, Valley View #1 is the only campground in the park that offers yurts. Choose from five different yurts ranging diameter from 16 feet ($35 to $50 per night), 20 feet ($55 to $70 per night), or 24 feet ($75 to $90 per night) that can accommodate 6, 8, or 10 adults respectively. The Huckleberry Group site is available by reservation as well. Most of the tent sites are fairly level and provide food lock boxes.

Mount Madonna County Park has plenty of activities to keep you busy throughout the day. A network of trails offers hikers and equestrians a serene landscape of redwoods, madrone and live oak trees to explore. Wildlife in the park is quite abundant, making this an excellent place for nature watchers and photographers. Included in the park are a multitude of various picnic areas and shelters. An amphitheater and archery range are also available. 

Temperatures at Mount Madonna can change drastically as the coastal fog rolls in and out, so it is a good idea to bring layers of optional clothing. Note also that "tree rain" can saturate a tent when conditions get foggy. Many campers have discovered their waterlogged tents stained with red sap. The park can fill up fast during the holidays, but most of the year it is relatively empty.
