This was the most expensive of the campgrounds we stayed at during our week and half roadtrip, but i kind of expected it since it is really one of the only campgrounds close to San Francisco. We arrived during the middle of the night/early morning and it is very dark and hard to find your spot, but there is plenty...

This is absolutely the worst Campground I have ever been to In My Life! I don't know why they keep saying it's close to the beach it's a good hour's drive to the beach yet they show pictures of beachfront on their website? There are no bicycle trails, the camp fire was an upside down truck wheel and the propane...

I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. The campground is adjacent to the Point Reyes National Seashore and one half mile from the main visitor center. It is a large park so it is a 9 mile drive to the closest beach. We do have an area map on our website that shows where the...

Clean, easy access, with flat, roomy camp spots. Lots of tent sites and RV sites with water and electricity. Outdoor Tables are provided. Fires allowed with fire pits provided. Not too pricy for location. Grassy spots. Not on the ocean but nearby access at Point Reyes National Seashore.

Had a campsite on the south side near the creek. Nice site with shade. Bathrooms were clean with no quarters needed. We were able to walk to Point Reyes National Seashore and get in some beautiful hiking even though it was raining a bit. This park is a must see for anyone visiting the area. We will be back for...

This full-service campground is close to every destination on Point Reyes National Seashore and in Marin County. It can get super-busy and, yes, crowds can annoy and make messes. The staff do their bests to keep up, but may fall behind occasionally. For me, the value of this place and the fun of tent camping is worth hanging in, exercising...

This is a very nice place to go camp. The office staff is very nice. There is a newer dog run near the office for friendly social dogs. Dogs must be on lease around campground but are welcome. There is a huge group camping area for tents which gets really loud, stay further away if you like more quite. The...

We had a wonderful, peaceful stay at this campground in our RV. It was clean and well manicured. Very close (2 miles) to our next destination of Point Reyes National Seashore/Park. Would love to stay here again.

A pretty woodland campground site with individual fire pits and wood for sale which lit easily. Convenient for Muir beach and woods and Stinson beach. Less fog would have been nice! Helpful staff in the office.

This looked like it would be great. And maybe it would have been but NOT on a holiday. There may have been upward to 300 people there. 3 bathrooms and showers. Clearly didn't have the staff or talent to keep up with this crowd. Bathrooms , laundry, and showers filthy all the time. and never cleaned. No toilet paper. Laundry...

I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. All of the campgrounds in this area are always full on holidays so a crowd is to be expected. We have 187 campsites and we do fill up. It is not accurate to say that bathrooms were dirty all the time and never cleaned. Our staff...

We just got home from staying for the weekend. We really enjoyed it. Lots of trees, large dog run, large campground to walk around. No pool but much cooler there than at home so didn't really need it. Play area, weekend pony rides, campfire storyteller, shuffleboard, volleyball. Buildings are a bit run down and could use paint/sprucing up. Point Arena...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Olema Campground is located next to the Point Reyes National Seashore, just north of San Francisco. We offer the ideal place to enjoy different outdoor activities like bird watching, hiking, kayaking or just relaxing on the beach. We offer both RV and Tent campsites in a beautiful rural setting. We are located next to 65,000 acres of unspoiled park land and wilderness, rife with wildlife and heart-stopping vistas. Grab a good book or your hiking boots, and come visit our outdoor family destination that will help you create wonderful lifelong memories. Obtain all your daily essentials at the local grocery or hardware store, located just two miles away in the town of Point Reyes Station. The hardware store carries sports equipment and some camping and RV supplies. There are interesting shops and restaurants in Olema and Point Reyes Station. Stop by the campground office and we will be glad to give you information on all the local businesses. Get your chance to see one of America's most beautiful landmarks when you visit the Golden Gate Bridge, which is just an hours drive down our scenic coastline. Just across the bridge is San Francisco. With the waterfront and Fisherman's Wharf, parks and museums, cruising on the bay, and lots of fine dining, everyone will find something to love in San Francisco. Also just an hours drive from the campground are the famous vineyards of Napa and Sonoma. Spend a day at the shops with friends when you visit Sonoma and Napa Valley. This area offers great places for fine dining as well as wine tours that you won't want to miss. ... more   less
