We didn't actually camp here but we did drive around the camp and got out to look at the dunes and the ocean. Talk about crashing waves!! Beautiful. The dunes are really spread out and there are lots of place to walk around. The main driveway s well paved and taken care of. Would try it next time. Very rustic

My husband and our two dogs spent a holiday weekend camping at the Bodega Dunes Campground in our 14' Toy Hauler. The spaces do not have hookups, but include a fire ring, cupboard, and picnic table. The spaces were fairly level with bathrooms evenly spaced throughout the campground. Since it was winter, only a portion of the park was open.... More

Took 4 famlies camping here. Nice camp sites. Reasonable facilities. It's a bit of a walk to the beach but even our young kids were able to make it. The beach is nice and clean. Close to town so if you forgot anything its a quick trip to rum in to Bodega.

This campground had all the amenities we were looking for! We were a group of 8 people (4 adults, 4 children) who were sleeping in a tent and in a small trailer. As novice campers, we were very nervous about the fact that you can’t reserve your exact spot in advance. It worked out well for us. At check in,... More

This is a very beautiful state park regardless if one is camping or just using the day use area at the beach. There is a nice parking lot there. There is a boardwalk that goes to the ocean which is nice to get over the dunes area (note - there is one short stretch where there is not a boardwalk).... More

This is a lovely campground with decent, private sites. The facilities are very good. Hot powerful showers included in the price, clean toilets and very helpful and friendly campground hosts. The location is also very beautiful. What more could you ask for?

In general, we were disappointed by this campground. The sites tend to be very close together and very small. The southern end of the campground is bordered by a chain link fence; on the other side is a street with a decent amount of traffic. Other campsites backed up to family homes on the other side of the fence. Campsite... More

After many years of visiting Bodega, I've finally got around to camping at Bodega Dunes. Should have done so sooner and often. Nice campsites, mostly very private. Clean washrooms, really good free showers. Trails over the dunes can be challenging. Choose campsites carefully if the weather is windy--you could get a gritbath. Campground hosts were really pleasant folks.

I have stayed here many times and I have to say that I love it. My last campsite had a bit of wind problems, but they were easily overcome, or put up with, and slightly entertaining. The whole thing is very well maintained, though there are no soap or towels provided. There are multiple trails over the dunes that are... More
