Glen Camp might not be the most popular kid in class, but it is the most protected.

Glen Camp might not be the most popular kid in class, but it is the most protected. Most campgrounds in Point Reyes get lots of wind since they are close to the coast, but not Glen Camp (which also explains why you can actually make an easy booking here)! The campground is tucked away in a wooded valley and it is nice and secluded. Half the sites are in an open area with shrubs/trees and the other half is a bit further up a hill. Our advice is to avoid sites #2 and #10 since people will need to walk right through the site to get to those in the back. Sites #11 and #12 get the morning sun. Sites #1 and #2 are in the trees/shade all the time.

No frills spot. Great if you just need a place to set down you gear and sleep in-between exploring Pt Reyes' trails.

Fairly private campground, and sites 5-8 are not visible to people passing by the camp on their hikes. Wear long pants or the nettles will getcha!

awesome spot!i'd say there are most definitely frills because there is a bathroom with 2x vault toilet, grills, picnic tables, and water. 10 is comepletely exposed out in the open, 5-9 are more private

Sites have a lot of privacy- in a nice secluded grove of trees, not really anything exciting about the campground though

This camp site is totally inland with no views. It gets very crowded and is quite shaded.

Great to come to after a long day of backpacking through Point Reyes. Sites 6-8 are the best since they are a little bit uphill and offer more protection and privacy. The sites on the lower level are very exposed, and you'd easily be able to see and hear your neighbors. It may not have the views and "Instagram appeal" as the Wildcat campground, but if you're looking for a camp for a last minute backpacking trip, you'll probably find availability here. Each campsite has 1 bear box, 1 grill, and 1 picnic table, and there's vault toilets & potable water.
