Description

It sure is nice to be so dang close to the ocean! Wildcat Camp is located in an open meadow that is just a hop, skip and jump away from the mighty Pacific Ocean. Another great thing about Wildcat is that it’s also the closest camp to Alamere Falls (remember that dream you had of a waterfall emptying out onto the beach? Yep, well that’s real and it’s called Alamere)! The hike is Continue reading...
It sure is nice to be so dang close to the ocean! Wildcat Camp is located in an open meadow that is just a hop, skip and jump away from the mighty Pacific Ocean. Another great thing about Wildcat is that it’s also the closest camp to Alamere Falls (remember that dream you had of a waterfall emptying out onto the beach? Yep, well that’s real and it’s called Alamere)! The hike is an easy 2-miler along the beach, just make sure you mind the tides! It’s also the most popular campground in Point Reyes, so if you’re trying to camp here on a weekend, planning WAY in advance is a good choice. We hear that campsites #4 & #5 are the bees knees (this is a good thing). The best way to get to Wildcat Camp is a 5.5 mile hike on the Palomarin Trailhead and it just so happens to be one of the nicest stretches of trail in Northern California! You’re seriously going to dig this place. As we said, this coastline is MIGHTY, so make sure to bring proper wind protection

Sites 1-3AB are most exposed to neighbors but closest to bathroom. Sites 5-7 are the small but offers the most seclusion.

Great place to backpack if you're a beginner. There's also potable water (usually) at the campground so you don't have to haul it. Be sure to bring a filter just in case. Campsite 7 is amazing but can be hard to find when the mustard flowers are blooming!

Great for backpacking beginners. It's only a 5-6 mile hike in and trails are super well marked.

What a campground! It's only a 1-mile hike from Alameer Falls. I highly recommend eating lunch at the top!

Site 7 is the closest to the path that leads to the beach. The only time you'll really see people is heading to the bathroom/water.

Great beach access at this campground, be careful in the surf. Can be exceptionally damp (duh!).
