“Need to try again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

This was sadly a two star review.

We decided to try a new place to take our 32' Vista with our three kids and our dog. We found Schooner's landing on a web search and decided to give it a try. There are actually two RV parks in the area. One is nearer to the ocean and looks like a parking lot. Schooners goes back into the Albion River.

The new managers, Chuck and Denice are hard to get a hold of since they are usually on the grounds working and there is NO cell phone service into the park. Upon arrival, we let ourselves into the park and drove in. I found Chuck and Denice hard at work in the back of the park. Chuck directed us to our site. It had 30 amp service with water and sewer. The site was slanted but we have auto leveling so it was not a problem. The bathrooms were nearby and clean. There was no WiFi but the café in the neighboring park had WiFi for it's patrons.

We loved the place. The site had a direct view of the river. There were seals sunning themselves, herons, geese and ducks in the water. There was a bald eagle flying around. We walked to the beach which was about 5 minutes away.

When we go back to our site, Chuck came by and warned us that there was a tick problem on the grounds. We wondered how bad it could be but we took precautions and brushed the dog well before letting her into the motor home... We found 5 ticks in the motor home in a matter of hours. The next morning we left very early. I told Chuck. He was apologetic and did not charge us for the night.

We ended up driving to Ft. Bragg for some tick powder and then stayed at the Caspar Beach RV park (which I reviewed as well).

When the ticks pass, I hope to return to Schooner's and try again.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a site in the 30s for a good view of the dock and river.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Visit a hidden paradise on the coast, just 10 minutes south of Mendocino village. Each of our campsites is at the edge of the Albion river, offering an unparalleled experience of observing wildlife up close. Seals, sea lions, herons and egrets abound. At low tide, watch the wading birds feed on crabs and eelgrass. At high tide, schools of herring might pass under your kayak. Explore the ocean at the Albion Cove, or paddle upriver. We are beginning an extensive restoration project, inviting the native vegetation and creatures back into our site. Watch the transformation, as human impact is minimized and the river allowed to shape the place. This is a wild place. We are all guests of the River ... more   less
