One-of-a-kind camping experience!

The Mendocino Woodlands Camp is available for group camping only. Experience breathtaking cabins nestled in the serene Redwood forest of Mendocino! Our rustic, National Historic Landmark camp is comprised of three private campgrounds, providing a unique and secluded venue for camping and events. 

Located about 4 hours north of San Francisco along the California coast, the Mendocino Woodlands features beautiful hiking trails, sunny meadows, and a swimming hole. Each camp is a separate, self-contained area with its own cabins, kitchen/dining/recreation hall, shower/toilet facilities, and campfire circle.

Weddings, Reunions, Anniversaries, Private Retreats, Birthdays, and more!

Come celebrate life’s treasured moments at the Mendocino Woodlands. Imagine yourself deep in the redwoods with dappled sunlight playing on the woodland floor. Open meadows with the sky above, the murmur of a sparkling brook and birdsong in the air. Quaint, rustic cabins and lodges, handcrafted by artisans in the early part of the last century, for your use and enjoyment. Your friends and family sharing in nature’s wonder and beauty while you come together as never before.

For your convenience, we’ve compiled a Resource Guide of local businesses that may help you in planning your event. The peaceful setting at the Woodlands provides a unique environment for retreats, training seminars, dance, music, church, youth, nature study groups and special celebrations, particularly weddings. Your group will be a welcome addition.
