Best Hipcamp find EVER! Ideal for families. Camp Noyo is a 100+ year old logging camp, turned Boy Scout camp, turned Hipcamp. The sites are huge, very well stocked (read the list and pack light!), and absolutely stunning. The river is perfect! There are secluded swimming holes just a short walk from the tent sites, a stunning beach with paddle boards/kyaks/row boats/beach toys, and you sleep to the sound of the rapids right below the sites. The bathrooms are new and incredibly clean and well-serviced. The camp is about an hour from Willits, down a bumpy, old logging road. Bring all the food you need so you don't have to spend half a day going into Willits for supplies. I can't recommend Camp Noyo enough - we will definitely be back.

Our group had a great time at Camp Noyo! They make it so easy...between the campsite kitchens, great bathrooms, firewood, etc. One barely needs to bring anything! The campground is super clean. Sites offer a good amount of privacy. The campground is atmospheric, nestled within the forest, right on the river with a cool suspension bridge entrance. Lots of hiking and water sports activity options, and the camp provides a number of kayaks, canoes, SUPs amd floaties for camper use. Susannah was very responsive before and during our stay, as was her grandfather. I would definitely return!

Really loved everything about this stay. Chief Noyo made us feel right at home. We enjoyed splitting wood, using the boats, the convenience
Of the campstoves, and the luxury of hot showers - we had fun keeping a fire going for half a day to keep the tank hot. Flushing toilets exceed expectations for camping :) Truly a joy!

We had the whole area to ourselves which was a treat! Loved camping right next to the water. The landowners take a lot of pride in the land.

We had a blast at Camp Noyo. Great swimming holes, beautiful camp ground, and awesome facilities. Our car broke down on the way to camp, and the camp hosts went out of their way to help us fix the issue. Can't wait to go back!

Coming over the hill to Camp Noyo was such a delightful escape. The atmosphere provides the perfect canvas to relax and melt your worries away. While we were kayaking on the river, I kept thinking I hadn’t been this relaxed in months. It’s really quite blissful gently floating along the river.

Once we dipped down into the camp, Brian (the host) greeted us and showed us around the camp. There’s a wooden bridge you’ll need to walk over to get to the campsites. There are wagons for you to haul your belongings, which makes the trek a lot easier.

At the campsite, there’s a complete kitchen set up with a camp stove plus all the pots, pans, and cooking utensils you might need, which made cooking dinner such a breeze. Outside the bathhouse is also a dishwashing area.

So stoked there was a shower here! That’s definitely a win in my book at a campsite. It’s powered by a wood stove on the ladies' side, so make sure you get that fire burnin’ before you hop in!

We had such a swell time here and instantly felt at home with the warm hospitality from our host. Brian’s a hoot! Definitely ask him about hiking recommendations and any other info you want to know about the area.

Blissfully floating down the river.Shake city camp - the closest campsite to the river. The wagons definitely help the transfer of belongings over the bridge go smoothly :)With the help of the kitchen setup, we cooked up some lemon blueberry pancakes.

An absolute hidden gem. The location as you'd know is remote so it's a great place to disconnect. The host family are warm, welcoming and they try to make your stay as comfy as possible.
The amenities are great and the campsites come decked out with pots, pans, plates, coffee mugs, knives, cutlery, a stove and a BBQ/Fire-pit so you don't have to haul all that gear along. The sitting areas are nice with picnic tables etc.
Getting there might look a bit intimidating but there are clear signs at each turn leading you to the camp.
Also, a few other campers have commented about the dirt track and the requirement for a high clearance vehicle which honestly is good to have but not necessary, we did it in a Honda Civic so any other sedan would do fine, just be careful and choose a good line at some tiny obstacles.
