We have camped here a few times and like the location to so many great parks, hiking, site seeing, historical sites, etc. We love the fact that you can drive into Point Reyes Station within 1-2 minutes for great food and groceries, shopping, etc.
Over the past year it seems like it is slowly getting more run down and needs some attention and investment. I think there are new owners, but either way, it needs some sprucing. The sites are average to large, depending on your circle. The bathrooms are always clean although very very cold.
They need more FULL HOOL-UP sites that are not right next to the road.
We will definitely go back because of the location and I really don't find the price to be as bad as some other reviews have said. It is not a state park and so you expect to pay a bit more, especially in such a fabulous location within less than an hour to SF and on the Marin Coast.
