Hands down, the easiest five stars to give.

As a car camping enthusiast, especially in the Redwoods, there is nowhere quite like Camp Navarro. Literally a couple minutes from dozens of exceptional wineries situated throughout the famed Anderson Valley, this is the perfect place to unwind after a day in the vineyards. 

With a recent change of stewardship, this historic site is being impeccably cared for by a warm, personable staff. Amenities include numerous private cabins, group camping sites, and a full service lodge equipped with a professional kitchen. Hot showers, oversized fire pits, outdoor movie screens-even an amphitheater-can be found throughout the grounds. Given the property's strategically placed facilities throughout its 83 acres, CV could easily handle a full sized company retreat.

For outdoor enthusiasts, there's private hiking trails through endless towering old growth redwood groves. Also an archery range, canoeing, climbing walls...I'll stop here and leave the rest to be discovered. 

This is the ultimate venue for anyone planning a wedding or special event. A best kept secret in Mendocino, and must see to believe it actually exists.
