The weather at Camp Navarro in August will typically be in the low 90’s. The camp is surrounded by shading redwood trees and guest staying for the weekend will be allowed to use the rivers to cool off in. We ask the guest that during the reception and ceremony to please stay out of the rivers. At night the temperature may drop to the mid 50’s so be prepared and bring a jacket. The night of the ceremony will be new moon so visibility will be very low, bring a flash light!

Things to Do

If you have the opportunity to explore the area before or after the wedding, consider yourself lucky! Anderson Valley and Mendocino are incredible! Below are some of our favorite local attractions.

  • Hendy Woods state park 10 miles east of Camp Navarro has some of the largest “Old Growth” coastal California Redwoods and are easily accessible. Most hiking trails are short, flat and kid-friendly. Camp Navarro also has some hiking trails right on site at easy convinces.
  • Wine and Beer Tasting, some of our favorites are Roederer Estate, Golden Eye, Pennyroyal Farm and of course Anderdson Valley Brewery.
  • The town of Mendocino is very charming (40 min drive North). We love the cute shops and the yummy restaurants nestled against the coast line.
  • Along the coast, Kayak Mendocino has an amazing tour of the sea caves south of the town of Mendocino. Reservations required.
  • Explore northern California beaches at the end of Navarro River Redwoods State Park (near the intersection of Hwy. 128 and Hwy. 1) or visit the beach at the mouth of the Big River, just south of Mendocino, and run along the Big River trail.
