Miti Boat-in Campground is found on the east side of Lake Mendocino. The campground and the lake are operated by the Army Corps of Engineers. The campsites are first-come, first-served and may only be approached by boat. There is no potable water at the campground. Also, campers must haul out their trash. There are vault toilets.
Miti Boat-in Campground has 16 campsites along the shore of the lake. Information about registering at the campground is on the campground map (see the link below).
Enjoy boating, waterskiing, fishing, and hiking. Attend campfire programs at BuShay Campground amphitheater. Hike along the 7-mile Kaweyo Trail. Take advantage of the Mesa Day-use Area with volleyball courts, a nice playground, and picnic sites. Find boat ramps on the north shore and near the dam.
Campgrounds without Potable Water
The lack of drinking water at a campground can be an inconvenience, especially for those without an RV or travel trailer. The obvious solution is to bring along a 5 or 7 gallon water canister to use for drinking water, dish washing, and even teeth brushing.
Another solution to consider is to use a quality water filter to filter water from a nearby stream or lake, a process backpackers use all the time. While hand pump filters work well, they can become tiresome. A gravity flow filter is really the best solution for campground use. Simply fill the reservoir with water, hang it from a tree limb, and enjoy clean water filling your water jug at a rate of almost ½ gallon a minute.
