Family Camp

Come spend quality family time together at camp!

Chesebrough is situated in a majestic redwood forest and surrounded by a rich history born of the logging industry that will transport you and your family while still being a quick drive away. We offer two family camping opportunities a year one during Memorial Day Weekend and one during Labor Day Weekend. During either weekend you will experience a full camp program with program areas open for your families to enjoy.
