Venue Setting

Camp Navarro is one of the most unique event venues in California. This historic former private retreat and Boy Scout camp is situated on 200 acres in the Redwoods of the Anderson Valley wine country. A fork of the Navarro River meanders through the property and 23 cabins dot the landscape as well as 11 campground villages which have 21 three sided Adirondack structures, each containing 8 beds. We also have 42 Glamping Teepee tents. Camp Navarro has over 300 beds and additional capacity for hundreds more as needed. 

Our 10,000 Sq/ft. two level lodge contains a 4600 SF dining room and dance hall with old growth redwood flooring, 8 French Doors, outdoor decks and a massive fireplace. Our chefs have backgrounds in some of the Bay Area's finest restaurants and we take great pride in cooking from our wood fired pizza oven, handmade Smokehouse and using products from our own farm. The lodge sits next to a two acre grass plaza and event area next to the river perfect for dining, dancing, games, and lounging around our spacious campfire area and hammocks.

The property has an arts and crafts area, cafe/lounge, 300 seat amphitheater, archery range, meditation areas, games galore, rope swing and numerous special hidden nooks and crannies. We are located among the Redwoods just minutes from the spectacular Mendoccino Coast and a dozen world class wineries. Truly the best of all worlds!

The secret 'Order of the Arrow' holds annual vigils at Camp Navarro and you can find their secret camp and campfire in the NE part of the property

We lease 120 acres of land from our neighbors who have 350,000 acres of private land so we have exclusive access to land nobody else does.

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 (down bedding, great food and wine, etc..) and in this day in age, our goal is to allow you to connect on various levels with nature, fellow guests and let's not forget, yourself. 

Stepping foot on our 200 acre property will quickly slow you down, have you saying 'wow' alot and give you the feeling of simpler yet profound 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. Depending on your group, we can turn off wi-fi service or 'light up' the property and the same goes for power as we literally have enough power to host  a party with Metallica! 
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 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 4600 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 any event need. A 7 foot BBQ and wood fired pizza oven get plenty of use as does our onsite greenhouse and farm. 

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 30+ round tables, 14 eight foot tables, 300+ chairs, 20 picnic tables, serving plates/bowls/cups and utensils, games galore and an archery and rifle range. We also include a small sound system, AV equipment and a built in main stage. 
Awards & Notables We have been featured in the following publications:
New York Times, Rustic Wedding Blog, The Atlantic, Forbes, The New Yorker, Huffington Post, Al Jazeera, NPR, 

We are the original home of Camp Grounded, a globally recognized tech-free adult summer camp.

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.
