Olema Campground
Reviewed 25 September 2016 via mobile

This full-service campground is close to every destination on Point Reyes National Seashore and in Marin County. It can get super-busy and, yes, crowds can annoy and make messes.

The staff do their bests to keep up, but may fall behind occasionally. For me, the value of this place and the fun of tent camping is worth hanging in, exercising patience.

Stayed: July 2016, travelled solo

This is a very nice place to go camp. The office staff is very nice. There is a newer dog run near the office for friendly social dogs. Dogs must be on lease around campground but are welcome. There is a huge group camping area for tents which gets really loud, stay further away if you like more quite. The sites are in groups of circles most sites are very close to your neighbor but some of the sites have good space and are longer. There is a small creek that runs along the edge of some of the campsites. Those are more preferred. People we have found are very friendly here. There are plenty of things to go see while you stay. The is shuffle board and horseshoes. A playground is way over by the tent sites. Reminder that Point Reyes National Seashore does not allow any dogs on the trails. The light house is only a 20 minute or so drive away. There are horses that ride out on the trails as well. Lots of wild life. The prices per night are decent. I recommend this place as a repeat visitor. Oh one more thing, we love their showers! The restrooms are very clean & conveniently located, so is the campground.

Room Tip: If using a tent Elm & Fir sites are desired. Cedar & Dog Wood are desired for RV/Pop-up

We had a wonderful, peaceful stay at this campground in our RV. It was clean and well manicured. Very close (2 miles) to our next destination of Point Reyes National Seashore/Park. Would love to stay here again.

A pretty woodland campground site with individual fire pits and wood for sale which lit easily. Convenient for Muir beach and woods and Stinson beach. Less fog would have been nice! Helpful staff in the office.

Room Tip: All sites looked good, for RVs and tents.

This looked like it would be great. And maybe it would have been but NOT on a holiday. There may have been upward to 300 people there. 3 bathrooms and showers. Clearly didn't have the staff or talent to keep up with this crowd. Bathrooms , laundry, and showers filthy all the time. and never cleaned. No toilet paper. Laundry dirty and took a fortune in quarters. Great location but......this was a great location but bad experience for 4th July

Ed S, Manager at Olema Campground, responded to this reviewResponded 9 July 2016

I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. All of the campgrounds in this area are always full on holidays so a crowd is to be expected. We have 187 campsites and we do fill up. It is not accurate to say that bathrooms were dirty all the time and never cleaned. Our staff cleans every day and we normally have more compliments than complaints about our bathrooms. Unfortunately when it is busy it only takes a couple of messy people to make a mess. Did you talk to any of our staff about the issues you note? We respond promptly to any complaints. If you do not like summer crowds maybe you can come in spring or fall when the campground is not as busy. I hope you will give us another try.
