About Bodega Dunes Campground

Description

Wow. . . this place is HUGE! It’s an ok spread of sites and you will get some privacy, but you will also most likely see/hear your neighbors. You can also hike along the sandy dunes, which can be spectacularly beautiful and it’s rather close to the campsites. Remember, it can get a little windy on some days, so stake your tent and bring a windbreaker. Campsites #’s 65, 67, and Read more...

Remember, it can get a little windy on some days, so stake your tent and bring a windbreaker. Campsites #’s 65, 67, and 69 have views of Bodega Bay, which is sweet. There are houses/businesses that border several campsites, so if that is not your thang, then avoid #’s 41, 43, 44, 46, 47, 71, 72, 72A,74, 76, 78, 79, 81, and 82.

Some of these campsites are super cool and some are average. Plan to get there early in the day so you have your choice. Either way, make time to go to the beach and check out the tide pools during your trip. And, of course, eat some seafood!

Bodega Dunes has over 100 sites, but for good reason—it gets busy. Most sites are filled with sand, so just be prepared to get sand everywhere. The bathrooms/showers are really nice, well lit, and well maintained. They also have a 'station' at each bathroom area to wash your plates/dishes. Some sites are less windy than others, so if you're arriving during the quieter weekdays, drive around and pick one you like before heading back to the kiosk.

The campground is near the water and can get windy at times, even during the night, so bring some warm clothes. The wind is usually gone in the morning. A great place to do some camping with friends because it's only an hour or two from the bay area. Just reserve a site in advance.

I lucked out with a great site (#19) that had a tent patch tucked away in the redwoods. Pitched a tent, put up a hammock and life's good.
Very spacious campground and you can walk to a beautiful and vast beach. Tons of people during the day, but it's so spacious that it didn't feel packed.

Awesome spot but can get really windy and chilly after sunset. A fire helps but even that gets pretty windswept.

Be ready for the fog horn all night. I personally love it, but had friends who didn't like it. Bring earplugs.

A friendly reminder to those not as familiar with beach camping: you and your tent and anything you leave outside will get WET overnight. Pack any paper goods, clothing, etc into your tent or car to keep it dry =)

When you make a reservation you do not get to reserve a specific site. This may limit your choices if you can't show up at check-in to find the best site. Expect to check-in at the booth and get your map, then go drive around to pick your site, then return to the booth to let them know which number you want. Pick out a few sites because some might already be reserved. For next time I will write down all the sites that I like and then just ask for that site right when I check-in.

There are some small, sunny sites that I wouldn't want. It can be cold and breezy here so bring warm clothes. The bathrooms have flush toilets and showers which makes this the perfect campground. Bring your bikes!
