Campground Description

Campground Description

Sponsored Contributor

Founded in 1962, the Point Reyes National Seashore is a 70,000-acre park with access to long beaches, jagged cliffs, rain forests, and huge meadows. Trails are scattered throughout the area, and there are four large campgrounds: Glen, Coast, Wildcat, and Sky.

Sky Campground is located at an elevation of 1,025 feet and features 12 campsites, solar-powered bathrooms, and potable water. There is one large group site, but the other 11 are smaller sites for one or two tents. Each site has a grill, a picnic table, and food storage lockers. The sites that are further from the main trail are the most secluded, and some provide beautiful views of the Point Reyes Peninsula.

There are many routes to Sky Campground, the easiest being a 2-mile uphill hike from the Sky Trailhead on Limantour Road. There are also many trails starting at the Bear Valley Visitor Center, and these range from 2.5 miles to over 8 miles. Remember to reserve your site early because availability disappears quickly. Also, be sure to watch for poison oak, which is ubiquitous in the area.
