    Olema, California

    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.

    Stinson Beach, California

    Located half way up Mount Tamalpais' forested southern slopes, Pantoll Campground is one of two first-come, first-served walk-in campgrounds within Mount Tamalpais State Park (Bootjack being the other). With 16 historic campsites lying beneath a quiet Douglas fir forest, time spent next to the campfire here will quickly expunge thoughts of the big city that lies just a few miles to the south.

    The campground has an assortment of sites that are distributed on the hill that extends from the Pantoll Day Use Area; sites located further uphill offer greater privacy and more room. All 16 sites are within a short, 100-yard walk from the car park. Each comes equipped with campfire pits and historic, stone-built campfire grills to accommodate all of your cooking and warming needs. Since advance reservations cannot be made for Pantoll, arriver earlier on weekend days to ensure you’ll have a site. You’ll likely have the campground to yourself if you are there mid-week.

    Napa, California

    Skyline Wilderness Park, nestled near Napa, CA, is a gem for those looking to explore the Napa Valley while enjoying some outdoor time. This campground offers a mix of tent and RV accommodations, making it a versatile spot for different camping preferences.

    One of the standout features here is the friendly and helpful staff, who are always ready to assist. The campground is known for its clean bathrooms and hot showers, which require a code for access. If you're bringing your furry friend along, you'll appreciate the fenced-in dog park.

    The campground is also a great spot for wildlife enthusiasts, with wild turkeys often wandering through the area. If you're into local food, don't miss the Hog Island Oyster Company at the nearby farmers market.

The proximity to downtown Napa and the surrounding vineyards adds to its appeal, making it a great base for exploring the region. Whether you're here for a quick nature getaway or a longer stay, Skyline Wilderness Park offers a pleasant and convenient camping experience.
