About Camp Noyo

Camp Noyo is a Redwood Empire Council operated camp located between Fort Bragg and Willits.  Its exact location is at mile 16 of the Skunk Train, sandwiched in the Noyo River valley.  The clear blue waters and the tall redwood trees make Noyo the picture perfect camping location for any Scout unit. Camp Noyo was first used for Boy Scout Resident Camp from 1933 until 1955.  It was then used in the 1970s as an outpost camp, and reopened for Resident Camp again in 2008.  

The camp has the capacity for 80 campers and 20 staff members, making it a very small camp.  Its diminutive size gives campers many opportunities that they would not receive at larger camps.  No fighting to get into the merit badges you want! In addition, the staff is able to custom tailor the Camp Noyo experience to fit the needs of each unit in camp.  Does your unit need more cooking instruction?  We can send staff members to assist in meal preparation. Does your unit need additional camping training?  Send them on the overnight hike to learn more advanced camping skills.  If your unit’s request is possible to do at camp, we will do our best to fulfill that request. 

While Camp Noyo is an extremely remote camp, it does have a modern shower house and toilet facilities (with hot water provided by wood burning boilers), as well as a camp kitchen.  The oldest building on camp property is an outhouse left over from when our camp was a logging camp—it is available for use by those rugged individuals who do not wish to enjoy the modern luxury a flush toilet provides. The camp has a superb balance between a rustic back country feel and a comforting front country feel making it perfect for the new and experienced camper alike

    Spring and Fall Weekend Camping at Camp Noyo

    Camp Noyo is open to unit camping (Cubs, Scouts, and Venture units), under their own leadership, from the weekend following Labor Day until the last weekend in October and from the first weekend in March through the weekend before Memorial Day. Your adventure begins with a ride into Camp on the famous Skunk Train (Departs Fort Bragg at 10:00 a.m.). Upon arrival in camp about an hour and a half later you will be met by our Campmaster who will review camp guidelines and point you to your favorite campsite equipped with tables, fire rings, food lockers, running water and toilets. Although the summer dam does not go in until June 15 and is removed on September 15 there is still ample water in the river for swimming, canoeing and kayaking. (All equipment supplied). Hiking trails, horseshoe pits, and a large campfire bowl add to the fun. As this is a remote area with no phones, camp ranger or year around roads, units should understand that fact prior to reserving a visit. The train departs back to Fort Bragg at 12:45 for your return. Two week advance reservations with deposit are required and out of council units are also welcome. 

    Bring your unit to Camp Noyo for a great week/weekend in a stunningly beautiful wilderness setting!!
