Steep Ravine Environmental Campground is home to 9 Rustic cabins sitting on the coastline just south of Stinson Beach as well as tent camping campsites. Enjoy amazing sunsets from the comfort of your cabin's porch. These cabins accommodate 5 people and offers up 1 parking space for $100 per night. Book here.

Although these cabins are bare bones, lacking both water and electricity, they couldn't put you in a better spot for views of the Pacific Ocean. From your cabin, you can enjoy amazing sunsets, possible whale watching, and access to trails like the cabins' namesake, Steep Ravine Trail.

The cabins are located close to the parking lot and restrooms (clean but no showers). To access the parking area, you need to receive the code from the rangers, which you can get once you've made a reservation. The cabin interiors include a built-in table and benches, sleeping platforms (the equivalent of two doubles, one twin, and one child), counter space for food preparation, a wood-burning stove, and a small closet. Firewood for the stove is sold on site; you'll need to bring your own sleeping bag, air mattress, camping stove, cooking gear, lantern, and other supplies. The windows have no coverings, but have clips to hang a curtain or sheet if you want privacy.

With the cabins' close proximity to Stinson Beach, you can run into town for supplies or for a quick bite. If you're looking to get a night away from the camp stove, head south for 15 minutes to Pelican Inn for upscale pub food.

To make your reservation, book here.

If you're looking for a daytime excursion while you're staying at the cabins, we recommend Matt Davis-Steep Ravine Loop. You can modify this hike by starting at the Steep Ravine trailhead just east of the campground and head north on the Dipsea, connecting with Matt Davis, and ultimately rejoining Steep Ravine.

Perfect Spot to Wake Up

So, I did the camping here and not the cabins ($33 a night for the sweetest little campsite ever!), but it was perfect. We came up here after getting off an early morning flight from the east coast, en route to Yosemite. It was definitely a little bit of a detour, but totally worth it for a relaxing night. Just remember to jot down the code, or better yet print out your receipt as I didn't have service to access the gate code from this spot. Great little place to wander around for a day or two.

Awesome place to relax and hike some trails. But bring your own drapes/ fabric for the windows (they have clamps) to block that early morning sun. We also went in May and it was very windy and cold at night. We ended up using 4 bundles of wood for two nights. But clean bathrooms just up the hill and water for cleaning dishes/pots and they sell wood fro $8.00 a bundle.

One of the most beautiful places to camp around the Bay. The tent camping was phenomenal!
