This site is a short drive from San Francisco. It’s slightly different than your average campground so here are a few things to keep in mind. - There is a short hike down a steep dirt road. You’ll need to carry everything down with you. It’s only a couple minute walk down. - The bathrooms are back up that hill. And then another 100 yards or so. So plan your potty breaks. - There are 3 sites here and they are pretty close to one another. Let’s just say you can easily hear your neighbors at night. Bring earplugs - There are tent pads here. Lower profile tents will fit best. A giant 6 person tent my not fit so well. Our 3 person backpacking tent was about a foot too long for the pad. The tent body fit fully on the pad but we had to stake the rainfly in a weird position off the pad.
