Fort Bragg RV Park Guests and Campers Enjoy Fair Weather For Abalone Cooking

Some saved money and had fun in the sun this weekend in Fort Bragg, here at the RV Park or in a tent camp at Hidden Pines RV Park and Campground. Sites from $25 to $33 were popular picks, also a group camp and some larger RV sites were enjoyed as well. Abalone has six weeks plus change until the season will close. This week a blood moon eclipse and monster tides churned up the water a bit so viability was a challenge, but I found a few fresh red abalone and tried out a new secret recipe.

Fort Bragg RV Park - Heat Wave On The Beach - October 3, 2014

Warm weather on a Fort Bragg beach is a good day. The north coast of California in Mendocino county has blue skies, great weather and calm seas for the first weekend of October 2014. Hidden Pines RV park and campground is open all day every day on highway 1 in Fort Bragg where getting into the pacific ocean from a sandy beach in a protected cove, is just a short walk from camp. Some days gazing at the sea is all you can do. Today roll up your pants or put on your shorts, then walk along the sandy shore and wade toward the gentle waves and feel them work their magic on your legs and feet. I like to rub my toes in kelp that washes up on to shore. Some places sell kelp baths - yet I like the pacific salt spray and  massaging motion of the waves running towards the beach over my feet and then flowing back to the sea and around my ankles. Abalone season has 4 weeks remaining. If your in Fort Bragg or Mendocino stop by and have a look at the Hidden Pines RV Park and Campground. Check in at the store or use the self register night office. (707) 961-5451 :0)

July 2014 Salmon Fishing - RV Camp Report - Fort Bragg & Mendocino

Elvis - Thank you very much... used superior intellect and skill to catch his 30 pound King Salmon. Except his name is not Elvis and though his fish is reported as largest on the boat for Sunday July 6, 2014 among his family... the story varied some - was it 30 pounds or  27 lbs... or maybe it was 29 pounds?  At The Hidden Pines Campground Fish Cleaning Station, stories can change as you interview eye witnesses :0)
 Big Fish Secrets? Call (707) 961-5451 ask for Mike and plan your fish camp soon. 
Alex Caught His First Salmon on July 6th 2014 on a 1pm afternoon fishing trip from Noyo Harbor with "All Aboard Fishing". He said Captain and crew on the boat. " The Sea Hawk were " were very good and the fishing was hot...
Alex caught his first salmon ever on July 6th 2014. His 1pm afternoon fishing trip left from Noyo Harbor and was provided by "All Aboard Fishing". His trip was sponsored by two guests at Hidden Pines Campground. Many others too were also treated, by the same same kind and generous couple, to an afternoon charter fishing trip with a good captain and crew on the " Sea Hawk ".  Fishing was very good on their Sunday afternoon excursion. The Pacific near Noyo Harbor is full of Salmon now. Several of our fish camps went home with full limits.

I had good fortune fishing with Mark who frequents Fort Bragg and Hidden Pines Campground. My limit of Kings were shared and enjoyed with family and friends at the Hidden Pines Camp store. When it's hot its hot. Hot fishing on the coast beats hot inland air. Call - (707) 916 - 9651 - plan your RV fish camp now.

This fish story looks pretty good.  I see a good catch and a couple biggies.  Using a scale though, is still maybe a good idea - I think.
Action and fun are as much a reward as are the great meals for those whom enjoy Salmon Fishing. These pictures tell this story.  A scale can keep it real, as fish stories can grow bigger at the Fort Bragg, Hidden Pines RV campground, fish cleaning station. :0)



    I put this fish on ice for some BBQ.


 Mom and dad test the recipe at the camp store BBQ as a salmon dinner is ready to eat. Many great outdoor meals are happening here daily at several fish camps. Camping and cooking?  Sounds good to me.

Spring Camping March 17 2014 Fort Bragg RV Park And Camping Report

Saint Patrick's day 2014 at Hidden Pines Campground and RV park. Today is a spring delight with beautiful green grasses and lush Redwood Forests. The high temps are near 60 with blue skies and a cool northern breeze.  The RV Park and campground are located just 100 miles north of San Francisco, at 18701 Highway 1, on the North Coast of California. Some have asked me about the recent new movie,  "A Need For Speed" with scenes filmed nearby. The race in the movie was filmed on highway 128 and highway 1 including their intersection just 15 miles south from this RV Park. Yes, it is as beautiful of a drive as is seen in the movie. Whale watching is best done from shore today as the Pacific ocean is not pacific. After writing this blog report I am making and flying a new seagull kite.  A sandy protected beach cove is just a 1/4 mile walk from the Hidden Pines camp store and a perfect place to fly a kite, or play with kids, or run with a four footed friend. Wild forest mushrooms, fresh walnuts, ice, firewood, and propane are good values and available at the camp store. Camping or RV sites with water, wifi, cable, electric, and holding tank disposal are available every day. From 10 am to 6 pm check in at the camp store and after 6 pm register at the RV and camping night self registration office behind the camp store.
