Set slightly away from the fray of Point Reyes—the site is near the Madrone group campsite. Across a road from the main campground, it's a nice option for those who want to get away, but don’t want to sleep on the ground.
Four cabins that hold up to 5 people are available. They all have electricity, platform bunk beds with mattresses, a wooden floor, covered porch, and an electric heater. It goes without saying that these book up fast, so make plans early to ensure a spot!
Offered near the campground.

I did provide a recommendation! Here!
There are actually five cabins. The beds are wooden platforms. We brought "eggshell" foam pads, and thermarests on top of them. I would still have appreciated more padding - perhaps an air mattress?
The cabins are fantastic. Super clean. Each one has a picnic table, fire pit and fresh water spout. Great hiking trail either up from the group camp site, or directly across the street, to the main park entrance. People often cancel, so call the park 2-3 days ahead and you may get lucky.
There are four private bathrooms at the site, each with toilet and sink. In summer 2021, these were closed for drought (portajohns on site), but reopened in fall, thank goodness! Separate showers stil closed for drought.
FYI web site says: Samuel P. Taylor State Park will no longer be providing mattresses in the cabins starting September 2nd 2019. If you have any questions please call Samuel P. Taylor State Park at (415) 488-9897.
I'd love to know what people bring to sleep on! Is a Therma-rest satisfactory or will I need something more? Description above needs updating!
