Ain’t no party like a Mt. Tamalpais camping party! That’s how the saying goes, right? The Alice Eastwood Group Campsite located on the Panoramic Highway near the Mountain Home Inn, has two large sites for group camping of 25 to 50 people. Each site has tables, grills, flush toilets, water faucets with sinks and a huge area to set up tents.

Drop some Alice Eastwood Group Campground knowledge on us.
This campground is magic! It’s also expensive so make sure you have a big group chipping in. There are two group spots. Group A holds 50 people. There is a kitchen area with a huge grill and a large canopy covering a dining area. Group B holds 25 and has more privacy.
We had Group A and had a ton of day hikers invading our site. It isn’t clear that the site is private so I highly suggest that you show up with ways to indicate that it isn’t public. We ended up making “Reserved” signs for all the tables. After a family invaded our Camp Dinner to complain, we had to rope off the stairs to the site.
The restrooms are well maintained. The area is gorgeous! So many trails. We visited during a rain storm so there were waterfalls everywhere.
The group sites are very well equipped. Group A's site has a large sink w/ running water, fire pit, two bbq grills, large shelter with 4-5 picnic tables, 5-6 more picnic tables spread around the site, 2-3 cabinets to store supplies, and lots of good tent sites scattered over a large area surrounding the shelter. The center of the site is less than 100 ft. from the parking lot. If you're looking to rough it, this is not the place - it's more like glamping than camping. This is a central location for many hikes on Mt. Tam - 2.5 miles to Muir Woods, < 2 miles to Pantoll and the Steep Ravine trailhead, 2 miles to Bootjack, and 2 miles to the Dipsea trail. It'll cost you $200+ per night, but with room for 50 people, it's a deal.
The group campsites are awesome for a big gathering/quick escape from SF. Make sure you check have the gate's lock combination when you go. There's no cell-service when you get to the campsite, so send any last minute texts at the gate!
