This page contains descriptions of the backcountry campgrounds at Point Reyes National Seashore. Point Reyes National Seashore only offers backcountry hike-in and boat-in camping. For those who would prefer to camp in or near their vehicle or RV, there are a number of nearby campgrounds in Marin County and along the Sonoma County coastline. There are also numerous options for lodging in West Marin.
Each Point Reyes National Seashore hike-in campground has a vault toilet and a water faucet. The water from the faucets is usually potable, but campers should bring along some means of treating the water in case the campground's water treatment system fails, at which time signage would be posted at the water faucet to alert campers that the water is not potable. Each 1–6 person campsite has a picnic table, a food storage locker and a charcoal grill. Group sites have two picnic tables, two food storage lockers, and one large or two regular charcoal grills.
