How To Get to Camp

Camp Bus | Driving & Parking

The Official Camp Bus

Want to ride to camp in style? Hop on the official Camp Grounded school bus! Expect sing-a-longs, face painting, snacks and getting to know your fellow campers en route to the woods. Buses depart from San Francisco early Friday Morning to ensure so you have enough time to get to camp so you can have first dibs on your bunk-bed. Counselors and staff will be chaperoning you all the way to make sure all riders are happy campers. Bonus: Our staff will offload your luggage for you and make sure it gets to your bunks by the time you’ve checked-in.

The Camp Grounded bus leaves Dolores Park Friday morning at 7:30 a.m. and leaves camp Monday afternoon around 3 p.m. You will get back to Dolores Park no earlier than 8 p.m., so plan on flying back really late (midnight or so) on Monday, or early morning Tuesday to play it safe.

Bus passes are $90 for a roundtrip bus pass. Purchase Your California Bus Pass Here

Parking Passes

Parking at Camp Mendocino is extremely limited and we need to keep the number of cars that are driving down the winding Highway 20 to a minimum. If you are driving to camp, grab yourself a parking pass (split the cost and carpool!). If you do not buy a parking pass and show up in a car without one, there will most likely not be parking for you, and or you’ll be paying an additional fee for last minute parking. Please do not drive to camp without purchasing a parking pass for your car. You don’t even have to worry about printing one out…we will have your physical car passes for your on arrival.

Parking passes are $85/Vehicle. Purchase Your California Parking Pass Here

Carpool & Rideshares

Need a ride or have a few empty seats in your car? We’ve partnered with a ride-sharing platform to help campers share the journey to camp. Help us co-create an environmentally friendly experience by limiting the number of cars on the road and lessening our collective carbon-footprint. You will be given a link to the Carpool page after you buy your ticket to camp.

** Carpools and Rideshares offered are not associated or sponsored by Camp Grounded.
