We stayed at the newer studio cabins in the group camp area of the park. The group area is located on a hill across the street from the park entrance. Pass the park entrance, then a few yards on the right there is sign for the group camp area. Turn right up a narrow single lane to a paved parking lot and find the RV camper host. There is a separate camp host and check in procedures for the 5 wooden cabins and group camp area. Two cabins are for the disabled and three cabins are reservable for the general population online. The bathrooms on site are newer, cleaner and roomer. There are 4 shower rooms, 4 bathrooms, and a sink for dishes. There are two parking lots on site a paved one for campers and a gravel one for the cabin population. The cabins sleep 5 people, have lights, overhead fans, and electric heaters. Outdoors there are individual picnic tables, fire pits and water fountains. Like the rest of the park there is a bit of traffic noise during the day. At night the noise is almost unnoticeable inside the cabins. Due the high popularity of the park cabins the insides are starting to show wear and tear. The floors need a good wash and the mattresses need to be replaced. It might be best to wipe everything down with some antibacterial wipes. A bit of caution if traveling with young kids there is no railing or fencing around the cabins to protect them from the steep drop off or the traffic below. We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Cabin.

Tips for other Campers:

Check out the Point Reyes visitor center for roomy parking, picnic areas and public bathrooms. The grocery store in town has wonderful fresh fish. Check out the cow girl creamery for fresh cheeses avoid their tasting counter due to the huge crowds. Buy your firewood elsewhere it's $10 a bundle here.

This is a BEAUTIFUL setting. Not many sites to fit our 29' motorhome, but there are a couple of good sites above, and a couple of good buddy sites for 2 motorhomes camping together. The Creekside RV sites are odd- park right on the road, huge campsite below but also road noise from nearby main Blvd. if you are tent camping or group use, the options are MANY and you won't find a more beautiful place. Amazing redwoods. We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a typical older public park. Narrow little roads winding through the trees will not be big enough for larger rigs, in fact the lower loop has a sign saying no trailers & 18 foot maximum vehicle length, this is because of the S-curve at the end. Since the park is sharing a small narrow mountain pass with a little stream and a road you will get some road noise, especially if a big truck comes through using engine brakes. From the sites along the river you could easily throw a stone across onto the road. But it does quiet down at night and the traffic was not too heavy and did not bother me much. The staff did drive around very frequently, probably as much as I have seen anywhere, but at least they were in a quiet truck. When I arrived with no reservation I was told they usually do not check anyone in until after 2PM but they did let me in a bit before 1PM. Like most of these older parks some sites are small and close together and not too level but some are spacious and private and level.

Restrooms and showers were old but reasonably clean, If they were like this everywhere I would be quite happy. Three out of 5 bars on my Verizon phone with strong data connection.

This is a pleasant little park nicely nestled in an old forest with a friendly and attentive park staff. I stayed in the tenting area in the lower loop, they have ancient food storage lockers that look like they should be in an antique shop, they look like they are from the 1940's. I would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Motorhome.

What a gem of a park! A great Redwoods campground. Some sites are tight. We have a small teardrop trailer so we fit in most all of the sites. Showers had the best hot water of any state park we have stayed at! Located close to the coast and the San Francisco Bay area. We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Samuel P. Taylor is a really beautiful state park, close to San Francisco and to Point Reyes National Seashore. There's no electricity, but the facilities are clean and the sites are well spaced and located in a beautiful redwood forest. There's a dump station up at the front. We stayed there while visiting Point Reyes, and although there are private RV parks nearby with better amenities, we haven't seen ones that are attractive--S.P. Taylor State Park is beautiful. There are about 35 RV-capable sites, and many more tent sites. We camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in a Truck Camper.
