Deep in the Mendocino woodlands, MSSF members, fellow mushroom enthusiasts, friends and family, gather once again for our annual north coast fungal rite of autumn.

All on-site meals and lodging (Friday night through Sunday lunch) are included in the basic TBD per person member rate).  NOTE: Due to liability requirements and to allow as many MSSF members as possible to participate, all attendees must be at least 10 years of age.

NOTE: (There is NO off-site registration available for Mendo Camp, the maximum number of MSSF members allowed in camp will be 140 total, including staff and volunteers). Registration is limited to (4) individuals, family members/partners living at the same address which is reflected in the MSSF membership database, and two guests. Be sure to check your MSSF member profile on the MSSF website to ensure it is up to date and includes your spouse/partner, correct e-mail and phone number, etc.

NOTE:  If you plan to bring a camper/RV or sleep in your vehicle please inform the camp registrar when registering for camp.

NOTE:  Attendees who plan to collect edible mushrooms in the Jackson State Demonstration Forest, are required to obtain a mushroom collecting permit.  Permits can be purchased at the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, Jackson State Demonstration Forest Office, 802 North Main St. Fort Bragg, CA 95437, (707)-964-5674, Monday through Friday, 8:00 - 12:00 AM, & 1:00 - 5:00 PM.  Permits are $20.00 and good for the season.  There are no limits on the quantity of mushrooms collected with a permit.  (Permits can also be obtained via the Calfire website here: JDSF Permit).  (Please allow sufficient time to receive your permit via the US Mail as it has to be mailed to the office.  *JDSF Mushroom Permits cannot be registered and completed online*).   I will also be sending out the forms necessary for obtaining your permit by mail with the Welcome to Camp Packet mid October, however I highly encourage you to obtain one for yourself at the time you register for camp.
