Spend a night just above the coast of Pt. Reyes, and take a very short 200 meter hike down to the beach and tide pools.

This campground is the closest you can get to staying overnight on Pt. Reyes coastline if you're backpacking in. Once you get there, enjoy the view!

The easiest way to get to the camp is from the slightly uphill hike along the Laguna Trail and the Firelane Trail. The trailhead for the Laguna Trail is just past the hostel.

Keep in mind that the Coast Trail does have issues during the rainy months, so keep an eye out for closures if trails become flooded.

Overall rating: 

Great view from the campsites on the hill

We saw a whale! The ones in the “valley” have less privacy and views, but still great. Note that this isn't a rugged backpacking trip but any stretch of the imagination. That being said, is great for beginners and anyone looking for an easy, local trip along the coast!

best camp site

this is an amazing place to camp and the views at sunset are just breathtaking.

No dogs on trail

Pt Reyes does not allow dogs (leashed or not) on any of the trails. Only limited public areas are open to leashed dogs. I would also mark the difficulty level as 'Beginner'. As other reviewers have indicated, there are many amenities. Only light packing (basically a tent).

You'll love who you are when you are in Marin!

Marin County is just a little out there. As in one famous bridge away from San Francisco. And right next door to the vineyards and Napa and Sonoma. Closer than you could ever imagine to everything that's unique in this clever corner of California. Take a vacation from the typical vacation
