    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.

    Sky Campground in Point Reyes National Seashore is a fantastic spot for those who enjoy a bit of a hike to reach their campsite. Located near Point Reyes Station, this campground offers a peaceful retreat with stunning views of the coastline, especially from sites 10 and 11. The hike to the campground is about 2 miles from the parking lot off Limantour Road, with a steady incline at the beginning that levels out after half a mile.

    The campground is equipped with vault toilets and drinking water, making it a comfortable spot for a night or two. Each site comes with a picnic table and a food locker, and while fires are allowed, you'll need to bring your own firewood as gathering wood on-site is prohibited.

    Visitors have praised the tranquility of the campground, noting that the only sounds at night are the distant crashing waves and the wind rustling through the trees. The sites under the trees are particularly favored for their shade and protection from the wind. If you're looking for a bit of solitude, sites 11 and 12 are surrounded by lush vegetation and offer a good amount of privacy.

    For those who enjoy hiking, there are plenty of trails to explore in the surrounding area, including a favorite to Alamere Falls. Just be prepared for some fog, which is common in the area but adds to the coastal charm. Whether you're looking to unwind with a good book or explore the trails, Sky Campground offers a serene escape with beautiful natural surroundings.

Campsites #9 through #24 are on reservations through Hipcamp. Reserve a campsite by visiting www.hipcamp.com Each campsite has a picnic table and fire ring. There are two sets of bathrooms each with a flush toilet and sink. Unfortunately there are no shower facilities available.

None of the campsites at Bullfrog Pond will accommodate vehicles over 20 feet in length. We do not offer any hike and bike sites (reduced fees). The campground is subject to seasonal closure due to extreme weather or conditions. The pond itself almost always goes dry by mid-summer and when there IS water in the pond there may be mosquitos in the area. Ticks are also prevalent in the area so bring a good bug/tick repellant.

    In warmer weather it is advisable to keep an eye out for rattlesnakes as they are in the area.

    Glen Campground, nestled within Point Reyes National Seashore, offers a serene escape for those looking to immerse themselves in nature. This spot is perfect for tent camping and is known for its peaceful, woodsy atmosphere. The campground features 12 sites, each equipped with picnic tables and bear boxes. While wood fires aren't allowed, you can still enjoy a meal with the provided charcoal barbecues.

    One of the standout features here is the availability of potable water and vault toilets, making your stay a bit more comfortable. The sites vary in privacy and sun exposure, with some being more secluded and shaded than others. For instance, Site 3 is relatively private and gets good shade in the morning and evening, while Site 10 is more exposed.

    The campground is accessible via a 5-mile hike from the Bear Valley Trailhead, which is mostly flat until the last 1.5 miles where it gets a bit challenging. This makes it a great spot for beginner backpackers looking to test their gear. Once you arrive, you'll find yourself surrounded by trees and a small field, creating a quaint and cozy setting.

    Wildlife is abundant, and the stargazing is top-notch, despite the distant glow of nearby civilization. From Glen Camp, it's an easy hike down to the Coast Trail, offering spectacular views of the ocean. Whether you're here for a quick overnight trip or a longer stay, Glen Campground provides a tranquil retreat with plenty of natural beauty to explore.

    Just 50 miles north of San Francisco, on the Point Reyes National Seashore peninsula, Tomales Bay State Park straddles the notorious San Andreas Fault. Here, the Pacific Ocean has filled the gap to form Tomales Bay, which is surrounded by a landscape of rolling hills, mixed forests, sprawling meadows and lush wetlands. Unique to the area are granitic rock formations that originated 300 miles to the southeast, transported to this location by more than 10 millions years of movement along the fault. In more recent history, the area was home to the Coast Miwok for more than 8,000 years. These native peoples hunted, fished and farmed these coastal areas until Europeans arrived and claimed the land in the late 16th century. In 1952, before the peninsula was completely taken over by agricultural interests, the state established a 2,000-acre park to preserve the area’s diverse flora and fauna, and ensure public access to the bay’s many pristine beaches.

    Tomales Bay State Park is a day-use area only, and overnight camping is not permitted. The main recreation area is located at the north end of the park, on the west side of Tomales Bay, at Heart’s Desire. Here you’ll find picnic areas with barbecues, scenic viewpoints, nature trails, and access to several beaches. There aren’t any launch facilities, but kayaks and SUPs can be put into the bay from the beaches. A short hiking trail leads to the Jepson Memorial Grove of rare Bishop pines. Near the south end of the park, Shell Beach features a nice swim area, but is only accessible via a short trail from the small parking area, or by hiking the Johnstone Trail from the Heart’s Desire area. On the east side of the bay, a small public area at Millerton Point features a small beach and a scenic, barrier-free trail. Dogs are not permitted on any of the park’s beaches or trails. Park entrance is $8/vehicle, and the park is closed when the parking lots are full. Camping can be found south of the Point Reyes area, near Olema.

    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.
