About Kyen Campground And Oak Grove Day Use Area


Kyen Campground is currently outgranted to FEMA for a housing mission and closed to the public. Kyen Campground and Day-Use Area is situated on Lake Mendocino in California's Mendocino Range, where redwood forests meet wine country. The lake is formed by the Coyote Dam on the Russian River. A wide variety of recreational opportunities is available, including boating, swimming, water skiing, fishing, hiking and horseback riding.


The 1,822-acre lake provides abundant boating, swimming and water skiing opportunities. Anglers will find sunfish, smallmouth bass, striped bass, crappie, white and channel catfish, bluegill and perch.

Several miles of trails wind around Lake Mendocino, including the 3-mile Shakota Trail, which begins at the Pomo Cultural Center within the campground and offers beautiful views of the lake.


Kyen Campground offers 93 family sites within walking distance of the lake. The day-use area has four group picnic shelters, two of which have electric hookups. Several family picnic shelters with tables and grills are available on a first come, first served basis.

Amenities include flush and vault toilets, showers, drinking water, a dump station and boat ramp.

The Pomo Cultural Center is operated by the Coyote Valley Band of Pomo and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The center is modeled after a traditional Pomo roundhouse and offers displays about Pomo hunting, dancing and basketry, as well as local fish, wildlife and plants.
