Olema Campground is a nice campground for visiting Point Reyes National Seashore and is a one hour drive, 37 miles, from San Francisco.
The price is very good compared to closer San Francisco RV park options.
The campground is very large with good spacing between sites and separate areas for tent campers.
This will definitely be our base for any future visits to the San Francisco area. We camped at Olema Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go to the nearby Olema Farmhouse Restaurant for advice about local bakery shops, markets, and such. They sent us to a great bakery, Bovine Bakery, in Point Reyes Station.

We stayed here for three nights mid-week; we had partial hookups (water and electric). The site was very spacious, near trees and shade, very quiet. Notably, there were no Mosquitos, a big plus for us. The sites are very easy to back into. The grounds are well kept; the bathrooms clean. There are 2 showers in each bathroom; we didn't use them but they were very clean. Only draw back on the showers: you share the little dressing area; could be an issue for some. Others have commented on the Wi-Fi; we had excellent reception. There are sites near the front of the park with full hook ups; some are fairly spacious, others a bit tight. Also they are closer to the main road(Highway 1) and road noise could be an issue. A few of the sites further in the RV park have full hook ups. There is a lot of area for tent camping. All the sites have a table and fire pit. The park is near the town of Point Reyes Station which has a number of shops, restaurants. Then there is the Point Reyes National Seashore with plenty of hiking trails, the lighthouse, etc. In the past we've stayed at nearby Samuel P. Taylor State Park and while it is a lot less expensive, (a) they have no hook ups(b) it's a bit warmer (c) We were eaten alive by the Mosquitos. I'd definitely stay at Olema Campground, given the choice. We camped at Olema Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

You could drive down to San Rafael, take the ferry to San Francisco and spend a day in the city. I wouldn't advise driving into San Francisco; it isn't that car friendly. And if you do drive over the Golden Gate Bridge be aware that they no longer have toll booths. If you're from out of state and/or don't have a Fast Trak transponder, they take a picture of your license plate and send you a bill. The toll isn't cheap ($7.25).

Nice rustic park, gravel roads and pads that are decently level. Sites are good size and there are nice trees around. Dump station is easy to access, which is good since most sites do not have sewer so Sunday has a pretty long lineup at the dump station.

Very quiet at night and good food and drinks within walking distance in Olema, or take the county bus to Point Reyes Station for small town shopping and supplies.

My only complaint would be that for some reason many people felt their dogs did not need to be on a leash and just let them wander around. This makes for some uncomfortable situations when our dog get anxious to have some other dog loose wandering in to her camp. The staff may need to step up and remind dog owners to leash up, too bad people can't just be responsible for themselves.

Looking forward to our next stay at Olema Campground. We camped at Olema Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Walk into Olema to the restaraunt for a nice dinner at the Farmhouse and the PoInt Reyes visitor center has interesting history of the San Andreas fault

Spacious, level sites with grass, picnic tables, & fire pits. Peaceful, convenient to Point Reyes National Seashore & Pacific Coast drive. Not convenient to San Francisco, but at least it's a campground, not a concrete lot for RVs. Has a fenced dog area. Large laundry room which was reasonably priced. Check in was professional, but you have to ask for WiFi access; it's not offered to you. WiFi connection was not very good; very slow & kept disconnecting. One of the restroom facilities was dirty, & there was no privacy in the showers. We found one building with clean restrooms most of the time. The campground itself was clean, & they sprayed the gravel roads to try & keep the dust down. Whatever they sprayed with had a nasty odor. Not one of the employees spoke to us during our stay, except when we went into the office to buy firewood & ice. The office closed at 5pm. They are expensive, charge an additional $10 a night for Friday's & Saturday's, & an additional $3 per person per night for more than 2 people. Their website does not state (nor do they tell you when you call to ask questions & make a reservation) that the Good Sam's discount is only off the base price. The additional cost for the kids did not get discounted. Even though the cons outweighed the pros for us, I would have said I'd stay here again up until our last day. They posted signs saying the power company would be out working and the power would be out from 9am-5pm. When we left at 11:15am, there was still power. When we returned at 4:20pm, there was power. The clean restrooms we'd been using did not get cleaned that day. When I went to do laundry at 5:05, the laundry room was locked due to the power outage; no one ever reopened it. Someone who knew the owner told me to knock on the locked office door as his truck was parked outside. There was a light on and I saw shadows moving, but he didn't respond. Now I'm not sure I'd stay here again. We camped at Olema Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a deceptively large campground with nice spacious sites. There are some full hookups, electric & water only (with dump station), and tent sites. There are lots of trees which provide some shade on a lot of the sites. Didn't use them, but the restrooms and showers were nice and clean. In fact the whole campground appeared to be well kept. There is also a laundromat and a post office on the premises. Check-in was professional and friendly and the Wi-Fi even worked most of the time! Considering the size of the place and the fact that it's a bit off the beaten path, I would doubt that fills up ever, if at all. A good place to stay if you are in the area. Rates are lower during the week which is also nice. We camped at Olema Campground in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't even THINK about driving around the Point Reyes Seashore Area unless you want the fillings rattled out of your teeth. Worst road we've been on during the entire month we've spent in California (including dirt roads) and that's saying a lot since California has by far the worst roads of any of the five states we've visited so far. Just what exactly are you doing with all that sales tax you extort from me, California? Fix your stinkin' roads!

This is a very nice campground and the closest to Pt. Reyes National Seashore. There was plenty of room between sites, it was easy to navigate and pull into the site, the store was reasonably well-stocked and there were no negative issues like noise. There was no view to speak of and not much in the way of amenities, but I would definitely stay here again when visiting the area. We camped at Olema Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here before the new year and it had rained so the campground was mostly wet. The site was big as compared to other campsite we had been to. The bath/showers were clean. The campground have ample space and big tress, lot of greenery around. Overall experience was good. We camped at Olema Campground in a Motorhome.

This place is pretty busy. The sites are close but the park is quite large, in fact it would be ridiculous if it were ever full. The roads are very dusty but they do their best by driving a sprayer around a couple times a day to keep it down. We still ended up with everything covering dust, inside and out. The playground was a winner with the kids and the laundromat is HUGE as it's really the center of town with the post office on site, albeit only open 4 hours a day. Wi-Fi worked very well, but the park was relatively empty. We camped at Olema Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Seems a biggish sprawling place but is well treed and there's plenty of pace for all. Flat. We enjoyed it here. It was the only place where we saw children playing in 35 days of RVing: we liked that. It'd be a great venue if you had a family along. We camped at Olema Campground in a Motorhome.

We love this place. Yes, some sites are larger then others but it is peaceful and clean and safe. Close to the beach, walking trails and a great pizza place in town. We come here quit a bit because it is a quick town on a Friday night (1.5 hour) and they make it very easy to reserve with helpful and nice staff. We camped at Olema Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here while visiting Point Reyes National Seashore. The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. The sites were roomy, with grass and some trees. When we were there, it had been raining for a few days and the sites were a bit muddy. The check-in personnel were helpful and friendly. The bathrooms and showers were clean. We would stay here again if we were in the area. We camped at Olema Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice, clean place...friendly check-in. The site layout is unusual (four separate circles), which allows for ample space between. We felt that this facility is well-managed, quiet, and has an on-site laundry, as well as the town post office and a small store. The showers were nice, with plenty of hot water. Groceries and supplies can be purchased within three miles. We stayed for four nights and would stay again (the rate paid was with Good Sam Discount). We camped at Olema Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects "high season". We have stayed here often and Olema Ranch never fails to satisfy. It's all about location and the access to surrounding attractions (i.e. Point Reyes National Seashore)...fabulous!! Easy access to level, open sites with shade cover in most areas. Will return for further adventures. We camped at Olema Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Our second time here. We spent Memorial Day weekend with some friends. Campground was busy but nice. Sites by fire ring have lots of room behind for kids to play. WiFi was poor. No cable but satellite worked well. Point Reyes National Seashore nearby as well as lots of places to enjoy oysters. We camped at Olema Campground in a Motorhome.

It could be so much more. The WiFi never connected to iPad or laptop. No TV, AT&T cell service sometimes. Level gravel sites. 30amp where we were at. Nice folks at the front desk, refunded a night we couldn't stay with no hassle. Restrooms were super clean. For the area it works well as a "home port". We camped at Olema Campground in a Motorhome.
