I don't typically write reviews. But this time I felt compelled to do so after reading a negative review of this wonderful place. Clearly someone visited the wrong camp to suggest anything short of wonderful. Our stay here exceeded expectations and was nothing but positive from the moment we unpacked our car.
Camp Navarro and the experience me, my family and friends had while visiting early in the summer, is one which we will cherish for a long time. I visited Camp Navarro over a holiday weekend with my wife, two children (11) and (9) along with several other families. It was the perfect mix of rustic, luxury and adventure. Less than 2 hours from our home in Marin, made it a reasonable get away for the weekend and worth every penny. Which isn't much really. It camping.....there's nowhere to spend money.
We couldn't be more satisfied with the entire operation. From the gracious greeting from camp owners and hosts, to the absolutely amazing landscape and beauty of the surrounding area. Its an ideal setting for anyone with children, or without. There's peaceful Redwood groves to camp in, along with group sites (which we had) that offers a enjoyable and spacious area to surround yourself with others. All without being on top of one another. The activities and things to do OR not do, are off the charts...for even the most adventurous and discerning of travelers. We so happen to be a family with kids who need frequent and constant activities. This was the perfect place for us. Situated on a spacious property (consisting of Emerald green lawn, Redwood groves, Creeks, Zip Lines, Climbing Wall and open trails to roam) the entire group was satisfied beyond expectation. We always felt safe letting our children run, ride, hike and adventure on their own..... which allowed for much needed relaxation for the adults to enjoy on their own, or simply relax in one of the plethora of hammocks and sky chairs hanging under the Redwood Grove.
Group dinners with family and friends gathering at the large picnic table next to the incredibly large fire pit, was not something I expected, and came to enjoy and look forward to every evening.
I couldn't think of better place to enjoy a get away as a family, a couple or simply on your own. You owe it to yourself to take the drive...and visit. Take it from me, who never comments or Yelps or writes reviews.
This is one not to miss. We will be back to continue the memories of Camp Navarro.
