They are doing a lot of work on the property. It's not all open for camping. We stayed Veterans Day as we did last year. Sites are a bit bigger than the standard RV site. Love all the trees and greenery. Management stays out of your hair. Great place for dogs. Just a short walk to "town". We will definitely go back next November!

Large campground in beautiful surrounding. Sites are a little close together. Showers / restrooms are clean, but not much light ( dark ). Water was luke warm, so not much for a hot shower. Restroom building in loop 100 could use a renovation ( just like the main buildings and barn at the entrance ). Over priced, $ 50 p.n. for a full hook up ( in October ). No creditcards accepted, only cash ?!?!

We took our new travel trailer to this large campground that is within a days drive to many scenic areas of the central coast. Under new ownership 4 years ago, improvements have been made with newly renovated restrooms and showers. Sites are available with electric and water and there are a few with full hookups. The campground has many tall trees and is bordered by a creek with nice schrubbery although the creek is not accessible. More could be done to upgrade this property. Renovation of two red barns at the entrance to the resort as well as other out buildings, fencing, etc. could bring this property into a true resort of distinction. It might be nice to add some small farm animals to the barns for children to view.
All in all, this is a nice place to stay and take day trips out to Pt. Reyes, Tomales Bay, Stinson Beach and more.

I've camped at Olema Ranch Campground about a dozen times over the years because
its close to where I live, you can't beat the beauty of the Pt Reyes, and I love Stinson Beach. The campground is convenient, clean and in a great location but the circular sites for RV's are to close together except for five or six spots and the RV spots in the front are
in the parking lot. The tent sites on the other side of campground seem OK. The
price of $50 a night on the weekends is pretty steep. I prefer to camp here off season
to avoid the crowds.

This place is awesome,super clean bathrooms and amazing atmosphere.
The grounds are well-kept and the staff are not riding the whole time, you pay and then you camp.

There is a small racoon problem but even the racoons are friendly, they are not a danger at all.

I love this place I will keep coming. 5 stars all the way!

#1...great bathrooms! Free hot showers! Sites were nice. I really liked that the staff just left us alone. We were with a group of about 10-12 camping families so there was defiantely some noise from our group. We kept it down at night and I guess they felt we follwed their rules. The kids enjoyed biking around the property. Not really anything to do on site. We drove out to the coast to see the lighthouse and went out to a wonderful beach. Terrific trip! Sunny in November!

You cannot beat the location of Olema Ranch Campground. Close to many Bay Area population centers this campground was an easy 1.5 hour drive from the East Bay. Once here, there are a myriad of activities, from golf to the Point Reyes seashore. We enjoyed them all. The new ownership is making a concerted effort to improve the campground. The bathrooms were clean and all services functional. Campsites are large with new picnic tables. Campground is very well laid out. After years of neglect by the previous owners, this place appears to be turning the corner. We will be back here next year, if not before then.
