After over 40 years of closure, a renovated Bootjack Campground reopened in the fall of 2013, offering an additional 15 historic campsites within Mount Tamalpais State Park. The campground provides walk-in sites adjacent to the parking and day use area and two sites that meet ADA standards. In an effort to preserve the historic character of the campground, campsites feature grills suspended over rock fire rings that are reminiscent of the Civilian Conservation Corps era.
Bootjack occupies an ideal location on Mount Tam, sitting at the junction of the Matt Davis and Bootjack Trails, two premier park hikes. The Bootjack trail leads down to Muir Woods National Monument. Pantoll Station is only a short distance up the trail, and this connects with numerous other Mount Tam trails, such as the Steep Ravine to Dipsea Trail Loop. There is a picnic area below the campground that provides views of the Redwood Creek and Muir Woods valley below.
