Camp and Kayak in Tomales Bay

Tomales Bay SP - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

Tomales Bay Campground is a stunning, remote campground easily accessible from the Bay Area, sure to re-energize you and revitalize your spirits.

Tomales Bay Campground can only be reached by boat (which adds to the relative seclusion and overall wonder of the camp sites). If you need a boat, head over to Blue Water Kayak in Marshall for some help. You will have several beach campgrounds to choose from - we think the best are at Marshall and Tomales Beaches. The great thing about kayaking to your campsite is that you can bring lots of extra goodies you wouldn't want to carry on your back - bring smore's kits, cards, firewood, and fresh oysters from Tomales Bay Oyster Company.

There are toilets and picnic tables but no potable water - make sure to bring more than you think you'll need. You can get a fire permit from the Bear Valley Visitor Center.

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
