    Olema Campground, nestled near the charming town of Olema, CA, is a solid spot for anyone looking to explore the beauty of Point Reyes and the surrounding coastal areas. This place has a bit of everything: tent sites, RV spots, cabins, and even some glamping options. It's got a decent rating of 4.1, which tells you it's doing something right.

    One of the standout features here is the full hookups available for RVs, making it a convenient stop for those traveling with their rigs. The campground also has a small store on-site, which is handy for picking up essentials or firewood. Speaking of fires, you can enjoy a campfire at your site, which is always a plus for those cool evenings.

    Visitors have mentioned that the campground can get a bit wet, especially after rain, so be prepared for some damp conditions. The sites are mostly grassy, and the nearby bodies of water can add to the moisture. But on the flip side, this also means you might spot some local wildlife, like foxes, which one camper excitedly reported.

    Privacy isn't the campground's strong suit, but it makes up for it with its peaceful atmosphere, especially during the weekdays. It's a great base camp for exploring Point Reyes, with its stunning coastal views and wildlife. Plus, it's less than an hour's drive to San Francisco, making it a convenient spot for a mix of nature and city adventures.

    Families will appreciate the playground and the shuffleboard, and there's even a laundromat on-site for those longer stays. Whether you're here for a quick stop along the coast or a longer stay to soak in the natural beauty, Olema Campground has got you covered.

    CAMPGROUND CLOSED DUE TO FIRE:

    Public access to Big Basin has been severely impacted by the 2020 CZU Lightning Complex Fire and ongoing fire recovery work, but the park is now open for limited day-use access. Reservations for parking are not required, but are encouraged due to the limited amount of first-come, first-served parking available. Reserve a parking space. The parking fee is $6 per vehicle plus a $2 reservation fee or $10 per vehicle without a reservation. No reservations or fees are required for visitors arriving by foot, bike, or bus. Read the FAQs for more information on the reservation system and visiting Big Basin.

    Established in 1902, Big Basin Redwoods is California’s oldest state park. In the heart of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Big Basin camping's biggest attractions—literally—are its ancient coast redwoods. Some of these giants are more than 50 feet around and as tall as the Statue of Liberty. At 1,000 to 1,800 years old, some may predate the Roman Empire. The park also offers spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, lush waterfalls, and a fascinating natural and cultural history.

    The park has more than 80 miles of trails. Some of these trails link Big Basin to Castle Rock State Park and the eastern reaches of the Santa Cruz range. The Skyline to the Sea Trail threads its way through the park along Waddell Creek to the beach and adjacent Theodore J. Hoover Natural Preserve, a freshwater marsh.

    The park has a number of waterfalls, a variety of habitats (from lush canyon bottoms to sparse chaparral-covered slopes), many animals (deer, raccoons, bobcats) and lots of bird life—including Steller’s jays, egrets, herons and California woodpeckers.
