This is our "local", we come here often for a two day getaway. The Orchard Hill campground is very compact, but surprisingly quiet. Sites are not large but most will accommodate a 24 ft RV and some a bit more. Stays full in the summer, many young families with kids on bikes, so expect that kind of noise. Tall redwoods and fir throughout the campground limit the sun's penetration, making it a great place cool off in summer but chilly in winter. The trees also soak up much of the road noise and provide their own chorus in a breeze. There is a flat trail/bike path along the old creek side railway right of way and more challenging trails, both short and long, among the hills on both sides of the valley. The strict 2:00pm check-in policy is a bit annoying, but mainly to those of us who remember the more casual days a few years back. Just don't get here before 2:00. We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Motorhome.

Small grocery in Lagunitas is worth a stop but parking is a bit difficult.

This is a beautiful setting amongst the redwood trees. Sites are a bit tight and some would not be appropriate for anything other than a tent. Negotiating our 25' trailer into our site was somewhat of a challenge. Restroom facilities were clean and adequate. Nice park if you do not require any hook-ups. Close to Point Reyes. We will likely stay here again. We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a lovely park! The sites are a bit small, and some would not be particularly good with a trailer. Our site was quite spacious. It was a bit noisy on weekends, but not bad. There is a lot of shade, mostly from the redwoods. We have a solar charger, and it was a bit of a problem, but well worth it. Without traffic, we were able to get to San Francisco in about 45 minutes. Even better: we could get to Point Reyes National Seashore in less time! (I checked the Wi-Fi box because you can get it for a fee within a couple hundred feet of the guard station). We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This campground was amazing! It is just minutes from San Francisco but in a gorgeous redwood forest. The campground is heavily wooded and quiet. There were clean showers available for 50 cents. I recommend this place to anyone who can do without hook ups. We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Travel Trailer.
