Point Reyes National Seashore

Pt. Reyes has over 60,000 acres of mostly untouched land, extending from the shore over some low hills. There are four campgrounds in the park - camping is allowed only in the campgrounds. Campers are limited to a total of four nights. Check in at the visitor center before departure - trails are often impassable and water at the campgrounds can be tainted.

All campgrounds have water, fire grills (you know, a metal box on top of a three foot high pole), toilets, food lockers, and a hitching rail for you horse.

Campground reservations are required, and can be made up to three months in advance. Get reservations early - this is a popular place.

Just north of Pt. Reyes is a large private campground - Olema Ranch Campground - with water, toilets, and showers. Reservations accepted at (415) 663-8001. $16 and up per night.
