One of the best camping locations north of San Francisco, Olema Ranch Campground has been a favorite for many many years.
We stopped coming here about two years ago as the current owner was letting it go pretty bad. New ownership tried to sell private memberships, but this didn't work for them, so they're back in business with a lot of improvements...such as, upgrades of rv pads, kids play area, new high end pads and landscaping in the circle area near the offices, bathrooms, etc. The place looks really good compared to a couple years ago and I'm very happy to have this nice spot to come and "cool off" from the valley heat in the summer.
The challenge areas: as of mid June, there is no "store'. You can't buy anything at the RV park and need to walk about 1/2 mile to the country store in Olema..just plan ahead. The prices are another concern: I got a post card in the mail for 1/2 off the second night, which I appreciated, but their rates are at the top and their services just don't compare ..yet...
Currently they are asking for $39/night midweek and $49/night Friday-Sunday...(CASH ONLY..no credit cards as of this date) if they continue to run specials to get the business back up...great; because the park was sparsely occupied and we want them to succeed and make this the premier destination on the coast. They still have a ways to go to compare to Duncan Mills Campground (Resorts of Distinction) and hopefully they will affliate with a major camping company like Thousand Trails, ROD, RPI, etc....
Come give it a try...beautiful, peaceful and coming back , but bring your cash!
