Description

Coast Camp is….well it’s by the coast (this is a good thing). The camp is nestled in a wide open grassy valley and is a very short distance (about two football fields) to a quality stretch of beach. Sites #1-7 are best and offer the most privacy. This is a popular campground, but due to a solid design, it still feels secluded.

Remember that this is a hike-in site, so you'll be a couple miles away from your car. Pack really only what you need or the walk in will be cumbersome.

Bike access via Firelane Trail for bike camping (3 mi one way). It's a fire road that also begins by the Point Reyes Hostel, before the paved parking area that has the hiking trail access (Laguna Trail head). Fire road begins by an enclosed metal bar gate.

We enjoyed the gentle 2 mile hike from the lot near the PR Hostel through the winter drizzle. We frolicked on the beach amid confused seabirds, who felt like, just this once, they'd have the joint to themselves. We pitched our tent in a dewy mist at site 4, where a puddle had inconveniently formed directly in front of our fox box. We did not take this as a harbinger of doom, and were invaded by furry bandits in a pouring deluge at roughly 1:25 am, when we suddenly realized there was an awful lot of trash in the surrounding bushes. Two take aways: never, under any circumstances, bring food into your tent AND don't camp seaside with no cover when there is a 100% chance of rain. Also: always pack Tenacious Tape.

Stayed at Camp 6--I thought it would be right on the coast, but it's more inland and a bit of a walk to the beach. You can still see the ocean from the site though. Also, absolutely no shade at campsite 6, so be aware on hot days. It is also a far walk from bathroom and water. There's a big Eucalyptus tree towards the beach, where there's shade and a swing.

Perfect backpacking trip for first timers! We left from Bear Valley Visitor Center and took Mt. Wittenberg Trail. We continued on Mt Wittenberg trail to Woodward Valley. Would definitely recommend, it was a little challenging but mostly you are ascending down in elevation. We then took the Coast Trail to Coast Camp. Amazing views!!!! We stayed at Coast Camp in site #6 which was perfect. We couldn't see or hear our neighbors really at all. All of the sites #1-7 seemed pretty nice. They also have some group campsites but they aren't as private. You can walk from the coast camp sites on a short trail to the beach. Huge beach with beautiful sand and not too many people around.

Great place for a beginners backpacking trip. We stayed at campsite #6. It was very secluded and quiet. You can walk from the coast camp sites on a short trail to the beach. Huge Beach with beautiful sand and not too many people around. 

This beautiful beach is within 200 yards of the campground.Amazing first time backpacking trip! We stayed at Coast Camp in site #6 which was perfect. We couldn't see or hear our neighbors really at all. All of the sites #1-7 seemed pretty nice. They also have some group camp sites but they aren't as private.

It's a short hike to camp. If you pack in permitted wood, you can have a fire on the beach.
