This is a typical older public park. Narrow little roads winding through the trees will not be big enough for larger rigs, in fact the lower loop has a sign saying no trailers & 18 foot maximum vehicle length, this is because of the S-curve at the end. Since the park is sharing a small narrow mountain pass with a little stream and a road you will get some road noise, especially if a big truck comes through using engine brakes. From the sites along the river you could easily throw a stone across onto the road. But it does quiet down at night and the traffic was not too heavy and did not bother me much. The staff did drive around very frequently, probably as much as I have seen anywhere, but at least they were in a quiet truck. When I arrived with no reservation I was told they usually do not check anyone in until after 2PM but they did let me in a bit before 1PM. Like most of these older parks some sites are small and close together and not too level but some are spacious and private and level.

Restrooms and showers were old but reasonably clean, If they were like this everywhere I would be quite happy. Three out of 5 bars on my Verizon phone with strong data connection.

This is a pleasant little park nicely nestled in an old forest with a friendly and attentive park staff. I stayed in the tenting area in the lower loop, they have ancient food storage lockers that look like they should be in an antique shop, they look like they are from the 1940's. I would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice redwoods setting but individual camp sites are very close together; no privacy. Frequent patrols by park personnel in trucks. Traffic nouse from nearby Sir Francis Drake Blvd. Check-out is noon; we arrived at 1pm w/ a reservation, & were told to go away until 2 pm ck-in. Many of the sites have difficult RV access. We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful setting amongst the redwood trees. Sites are a bit tight and some would not be appropriate for anything other than a tent. Negotiating our 25' trailer into our site was somewhat of a challenge. Restroom facilities were clean and adequate. Nice park if you do not require any hook-ups. Close to Point Reyes. We will likely stay here again. We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park was pleasant enough, although the trails were not well maintained. The restrooms in the upper loop were so dirty I refused to use them. The restrooms near the picnic area were closed due to budget cuts, according to the sign. It didn't bother to mention there was another (unmarked) restroom on the other side of the picnic area, which we found by accident, so other visitors were using the bushes. You have to walk to the picnic area to get Wi-Fi. No hookups and you can't run the generator until 10 a.m., which makes for a very chilly morning. There are much nicer places to camp for the money. We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Motorhome.

What a gem of a park! A great Redwoods campground. Some sites are tight. We have a small teardrop trailer so we fit in most all of the sites. Showers had the best hot water of any state park we have stayed at! Located close to the coast and the San Francisco Bay area. We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a lovely park! The sites are a bit small, and some would not be particularly good with a trailer. Our site was quite spacious. It was a bit noisy on weekends, but not bad. There is a lot of shade, mostly from the redwoods. We have a solar charger, and it was a bit of a problem, but well worth it. Without traffic, we were able to get to San Francisco in about 45 minutes. Even better: we could get to Point Reyes National Seashore in less time! (I checked the Wi-Fi box because you can get it for a fee within a couple hundred feet of the guard station). We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This campground was amazing! It is just minutes from San Francisco but in a gorgeous redwood forest. The campground is heavily wooded and quiet. There were clean showers available for 50 cents. I recommend this place to anyone who can do without hook ups. We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Samuel P. Taylor is a really beautiful state park, close to San Francisco and to Point Reyes National Seashore. There's no electricity, but the facilities are clean and the sites are well spaced and located in a beautiful redwood forest. There's a dump station up at the front. We stayed there while visiting Point Reyes, and although there are private RV parks nearby with better amenities, we haven't seen ones that are attractive--S.P. Taylor State Park is beautiful. There are about 35 RV-capable sites, and many more tent sites. We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Truck Camper.
