Steep Ravine Environmental Campground

Stinson Beach, California

based on 1 reviews


Added by Billy Boockford

This campsite is only 45 minutes from San Francisco and provides unreal ocean views of Stinson Beach, the Farallon Islands, and incredible views of the western portion of San Francisco. On a clear day, the sunsets are unforgettable.

Gain access through a private locked gate, and descend about 1 mile down to the bluff's edge. There is only parking for 1 car per site and also several cabins that can be rented.

A camp host is on site and there are bathrooms and water spigots throughout the campground. Each site has a fire ring and picnic table.

Each site has its own name which creates a special atmosphere. On a clear day you can see from Bolinas point, Stinson beach, the Farallon Islands, to the city of San Francisco!

A short hike down to the beach allows you to swim, dive, and potentially surf the ocean below. On hide tide, there was talk of hidden hot springs along the coast line. There is also plenty of hiking opportunities in the area.

Each environmental site provides its own charm and different views in different directions. We were lucky to stay at EN02 that provided a great sunset and tree cover for shade and wind protection. A true gem only 45 minutes from the city. It is also a short drive to Stinson Beach, Mt Tam's many hiking trails, and Muir Woods and beach.

Steep Ravine Environmental Campground Reviews

I got the opportunity to camp here for my birthday . It was such a beautiful place. Sites are hard to get. The view was spectacular. Bring headlamps, bring lights, bring sheets or something to cover up the windows. Also I had. A little mouse eat part of my avocado, so please seal your food or have it stored properly. Leave no trace and they have firewood you can buy there, just bring cash. They don’t give change so make sure you have dollar bills. Also if you come around February/ March, there are beautiful Calle Lilies
