Fort Bragg For Our Home Base

On the coast and full of history, we have parked our trailer for the week at Sportsman's RV Park in quirky, quaint Noyo Harbor to explore the Mendocino Coast.

While traveling on Highway 1, I looked down, into Noyo Harbor, and knew this was where we wanted to be. I loved this description, "But just up the road, beneath a towering bridge and along a river that tends to hide from our view, is another village few of us have ever visited. Noyo Harbor is one of my favorite spots along the Mendocino Coast because it's so real. It welcomes tourists, but it's not here because of tourism. It's a fishing port and has been one for well over one hundred years."
"Noyo doesn't dress up for us visitors; everyday relationships carry on whether we're here or not. Noyo is what it's always been: a picturesque but hard-working harbor sustained by creatures from the deep."

The views at Noyo have attracted moviemakers over the years. Jonathan Winters and Brian Keith went fishing here during the filming of The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming. And it was here that Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell reportedly fell in love during the filming of the movie Overboard.

People have been hanging in this harbor since the 1850s. We're excited to be hanging here for the week. This is just what we needed.
