Memorial Day Car Camping at Van Damme State Park (GLS)

Join GLS over the Memorial Day Weekend for a long weekend of outdoors fun at Van Damme State Park in Mendocino, located on the North Coast 3 miles south of the town of Mendocino. This location has it all: beach, famous sea caves and abalone divers, lush fern canyons, a pygmy forest and majestic redwoods.

GLS camping trips feature a variety of daily hikes (from moderate to strenuous), food and camaraderie around the campfire, The Follies (not to be missed skits and home-grown entertainment), and a potluck dinner one evening. Hope you will join us for what promises to be a wonderful long weekend in a magical location.

BONUS:  For an additional fee, there will be the opportunity to join a group of us on a professionally guided kayak tour to explore the nearby sea caves. Using sit-on-top kayaks, we'll paddle into caves, rock archways, and over kelp beds. We look forward to seeing you in camp.
