The Mendocino Woodlands


About Camp

The Mendocino Woodlands, 3 hours north of San Francisco is a wood and stone work of art created by the WPA and CCC during the Depression of the 1930’s. Recently added to the National Historic Register, this camp is a national treasure.



This is a large spread-out camp with 46 four-bed cabins on hilly terrain. Each cabin has a fully enclosed fireplace, closet and balcony. The cabins are clustered in three groups, each group with a hot water shower/toilet facility.

Camp Swing participants will share cabins and must provide their own warm bedding. Each cabin is equipped with link spring cots with thin mattresses. You should also bring a flashlight and/or battery operated light for your cabin–no candles allowed. All meals are included in the cost. No pets please.


The Mendocino Woodlands is 9 miles from the picturesque town of Mendocino. See directions.
