After being closed for 40 years, the Bootjack Campground was recently renovated and reopened for premiere Mount Tamalpais camping. Bootjack sits in an awesome location, right at the junction of the Matt Davis and Bootjack trails. Explore the miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking, stop by the railroad museum, check out the spring Mountain Play in the stone amphitheater, or get star-struck in the monthly astronomy programs. The 15 available campsites offer drinking water, firewood, and restrooms with flush toilets. Keep in mind there are no showers available after your day of adventure.
The vibe at Bootjack Campground
Drop some Bootjack Campground knowledge on us.
Very nice trails and scenery. Also it is only a short drive to Stinson beach which has a dog friendly side. You can check in as early as the spots open and they fill up fast on weekends. Neg: Camping spots are close and sometimes loud neighbors. LOTS OF WASPS
Beautiful campground. LOADED WITH WASPS which makes cooking is impossible at the campground during daylight hours. It's a great spot to stay if you plan to be gone sunrise to sunset. An amazing hike down to Stinson Beach and back is just a few feet away.
Bootjack is a short drive from the city and dog-friendly. The campground is really pretty; nestled in the side of a mountain along a river. But the individual sites are really close together.
Lots of trails nearby, like Matt Davis, so this is a prime spot for hikers and long-distance trail runners. We showed up midmorning on a Saturday and got our pick of the campsites. There's a grill and stone stove, but neither come close to a fire pit. You can get firewood at the Pantoll Campground a half-mile away--cash-only.
