Point Reyes National Seashore offers year-round backcountry hike-in camping along Drakes Bay and amongst the hills and valleys of the Phillip Burton Wilderness, and boat-in camping on the west shore of Tomales Bay. Because of its location near the Metropolitan San Francisco Bay Area, the campsites at Point Reyes are in great demand. Reservations are strongly suggested.

While the only lodging within Point Reyes National Seashore is the Point Reyes Hostel, there are many other lodging and camping opportunities in the surrounding communities. There are also numerous restaurants, delicatessens, bakeries, grocery stores, and other places to get food in the surrounding communities.
