If you are looking for a unique and intimate wedding experience unlike anything you’ve seen before, then Camp Navarro is the place! Located on 200 acres in the redwood forest in Northern California’s Mendocino County, Camp Navarro can offer you the perfect private location for your dream wedding!

Camp Navarro is a non-traditional way to say “I do” and for good reason. The entire property is all yours for you and your guests to enjoy during your wedding and to stay for three days and two nights. Whether guests want to stay in teepees, cabins or they want to try the old-fashioned route of bringing their own tent, Camp Navarro offers a variety of choices.

For the campground itself, Camp Navarro has been upgraded to give you the full outdoor experience. With its 10,000 square foot Main Lodge, this is one of the many options for couples to wed. Other places to hold your wedding festivities include an amphitheater, and natural gathering places in the redwood forest and riverfront meadows. Even better? The entire campground includes Wi-Fi.

For guest amenities, the campground can hold more than 350 of your guests and enjoy the forest in comfort as well. Guests can enjoy memory-foam mattresses and plentiful restrooms, which will make the experience very comforting, especially for the guests who aren’t as fond of the idea of camping.

To add to the fun of having a wedding located in the redwood forest, the camp offers a variety of activities for you and your guests to enjoy. From bonfires, tug-of-war, swimming holes, archery and foraging hikes, Camp Navarro offers the perfect experiences for your wedding weekend. When you and your guests aren’t celebrating your marriage, you can enjoy the perks of having an outdoor wedding weekend in the forest with these outdoor activities.

Depending on the time of the year, rates for Camp Navarro vary. For the low season, from December to April, rates can run from $5,000 to $20,000. During the high season, from May to November, rates can run from $15,000 to $75,000.

Note: Camp Navarro requires that all weddings spend a minimum of $12,000 to $14,000 on catering services, depending on the time of the year, to be used in whatever way they’d like.

Camp Navarro only hosts a limited number of weddings each year, so if you are thinking about this wedding option, check out their website now.
