Inside Scoop

Venue Features
The Scene:
100+ years of history are the backdrop for our stunning property that until 2013 was not open to the public. Today, Camp Navarro is a premier Wine Country venue to gather friends, family, and colleagues for diverse public and private gatherings. We strive to find a balance between 'rustic' and the finer touch points like down bedding and  great food and wine. In this day in age, our goal is to allow you to slow down and connect with nature, friends and yourself. 

Stepping foot on our 200 acre property creates an immediate reaction and will have you saying 'wow' alot and give you the feeling of simpler times.  Looking up at the TALL trees, breathing the clean crisp air, swinging on a rope swing, and settling in to your cozy cabin, teepee or Adirondack is immediately grounding and comforting. We hear 'How cool is this' and 'I needed this' frequently. Let's not forget, 'best event/wedding ever'!.... 

Redwood trees, a friendly meandering river, quaint idyllic accommodations throughout the redwoods, and a massive two story lodge are the cornerstones of our property. Rounding out the experience are little touches like an ideally situated hammock, a hidden 'hollow', wood fired pizza oven, tether ball, s'mores and campfires and trails meandering all over. 
 
 
Design:
Nature is the star at Camp Navarro but we have a beautiful and very nostalgic property that most everyone appreciates. Classic wood signs, knotty picnic tables, string lights, hammocks, expansive decks, historic art, and idyllic cabins are all part of the design. Wood Scultptures also appear throughout our property as Tonu Shane, a world class carver, is an artist in residence. We have added our own touches of color, and repurposed materials, like our massive campfire from the top of an old water tower. Lighting is subtle and appropriate but enough to feel safe though we also want you to see the brilliant stars at night. 
 
 
Standout Venue Features:
Nature is center stage as you have your own 200 acre private Redwood Forest and River as well as deer frequently rambling about and hawks soaring above and owls hooting throughout the night. Numerous swimming holes and rope swing are found along are 1/2 mile of river front. 

Our massive 4500 square foot dining, dance and meeting hall as well as a 2 acre outdoor glass plaza are the heart and soul of the property and will accomodate most any event need. A 7 foot BBQ and wood fired pizza oven get plenty of use as does our inviting campfire area. 

Ownership and key staff have a long storied history in the hospitality, event and outdoor industry so you will be well taken care of.
 
 
Extra Perks:
We have 60 tables, 400+ chairs, 20 picnic tables, redwood benches, hammocks, serving plates/bowls/cups and utensils, games galore and an archery and rifle range. We also include a small professional sound system, AV equipment and a built in main stage plus two other smaller auxillary built in stages.

A Dreamy Woodland Wedding at Luxurious Summer Camp in Northern California

Camp Navarro

901 Masonite Industrial Road, Philo, CA, United States

Left to a kid's imagination—in its purest, most wondrous eternity, where anything is possible—a wedding is supposed to take place in the forest. That’s where the freshest air floats. That’s where the prettiest scenes of nature can be found. That’s where romance, adventure, and magic belong. The really surprising thing is that some children get their wish, even as adults.

Such was the case with David and Divah, two lovebirds who said their vows in the Northern California woodland wonderland of Camp Navarro. Sure, while it has twinkling lights of summer camp—aglow in every young dream—the historic 200-acre retreat makes for one heck of an adult getaway, given that it’s wine country to boot.
