Golden Rule RV Park
Situated in a low mountain valley of Northern California’s Mendocino County, the 5,000 acres that would become Ridgewood Ranch were originally inhabited by the indigenous Pomo peoples. The property was purchased by automobile magnate Charles S. Howard in 1919, and he quickly transformed it into a fully working ranch and thoroughbred facility, complete with the Howard’s large Craftsman style home, and horse stud barn. From there this great piece of property includes a full mobile home park with residence living year around as well as a gorgeous RV park that is Golden Rule RV Park. Click here for details.
