Campground with creek and ocean near Bay Area?


We'd like to go camping with our son (9) mid-June. We were at Limekiln last August and liked the creek/ocean combo, so I'm trying to find something similar. It doesn't have to be in Big Sur, it can also be in SF, as long as it is not further than 1.5 hours from the Silicon Valley and it's nice.

Thank you!

Samuel P. Taylor. There are campsites right by Lagunitas Creek. And Point Reyes National Seashore is just around the corner. Plus it is under Redwoods. You can't beat Limekiln for the Trifecta all within 50 yards of each other, but this comes pretty close (at least in my 5 minutes thinking about it).

Andrew Molera is a nice campground near the beach and along the Big Sur River. It's a walk in but not too far from the parking lot. It's probably more than 1.5 hours from San Jose though. Samuel Taylor and anything north of that will also be more than 1.5 hours most likely.
