The Bohemian Grove is a 2700 acre private camp, located within the Redwood Forest, in Monte Rio, California, near Napa. It contains accommodations for 2000 people to "camp" in luxury. It is owned by the Bohemian Club. The Bohemian Club is a private, all male club, which is headquartered in San Francisco. It was formed in 1872.
The Club has evolved into an association of rich and powerful men, mostly from the United States. Some artists are allowed to join because of their social status and entertainment value. The membership list has included every Republican U.S. president (as well as many Democrats such as Bill Clinton and Lyndon Johnson) since 1923, many cabinet members, and directors & CEO's of the largest corporations, including major financial institutions.
