Just 14 miles east of Covelo, “where the pavement ends,” lies the secluded
and magnificent Black Butte River Ranch. This 14-acre facility is minutes from great
swimming holes on the Eel River and the wilds of the Mendocino National Forest. The
ranch offers full hookup RV sites, tent camping and rustic cabins along the Black Butte
River. A Country Store, a barbecue featuring local grass fed beef, and showers and a
laundromat are all on site. Bring your horse; Black Butte River Ranch provides 9 paddocks
and 7 acres of pasture. Recreational opportunities abound, including camping, hiking,
backpacking, rafting, kayaking, hunting,
fishing, nature study, mushroom hunting,
photography and off-highway vehicle
travel. Black Butte River Ranch is available
for weddings and events.
The Yolla Bolly-Middle Eel Wilderness to the north provides the experience of deep mountain forests and swift rivers. Mendocino National Forest is located only 6 miles from the Ranch. Rainbow trout, salmon and steelhead can be found there in over 300 miles of streams and 2,000 acres of lakes and ponds. The changing elevations in this wilderness offer a wide variety of outdoor conditions.
