It sure is nice to be so dang close to the ocean! Wildcat Camp is 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 (one of only two waterfalls that fall directly into the Pacific).
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, plan WAY in advance.
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 and so is the wind, so make sure to bring layers.

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!
My favorite spot. Gorgeous campsite, easy hike in, close to Alamere. They provide grills at each campsite, just remember to bring some charcoal. Ask for a beach fire permit (driftwood) when you check it, not always available.
