Cook's Valley Campground is a festival site unlike any other. It is a rare gem; a breathtaking locale that amazingly juxtaposes a sense of remoteness with surprisingly easy accessibility. Adjacent to US Highway 101 on the border of Humboldt & Mendocino county, just 3.5 hours north of San Francisco, Cooks Valley is tucked along the Eel River under towering Redwood trees. The festival grounds feature deep swimming holes, the largest Redwood grove used for camping, and plenty of space to stretch out. Northern Nights Music Festival is a unique and safe experience for both newcomers and seasoned campers.
