New camping stay limits went into effect across California’s Mendocino National Forest on Sept. 20 and the limits apply to developed campgrounds and dispersed camping locations, according to the Daily News.
Visitors may camp in the same developed recreation campground for 14 days within any 30-day period, but no more than 28 cumulative days in any 12-month period. For dispersed recreation areas, visitors may camp in the same location outside a one-mile radius of a developed recreation site for 14 days within any 30-day period but no more than 28 cumulative days in any 12-month period.
