What could be more memorable come vacation time than chilling in a picturesque, quiet wooded area with the ocean only steps away? Not much and if this sounds good to you, then Olema Campground is where you're headed to on your next vacation. Point Reyes National Seashore is right next to this RV campground which offers you restrooms with hot showers, laundry machines and a playground for your kids while you get set up. Other on-site activities include horseshoe pits, volleyball courts, and shuffleboard, or you can put your feet up while you use the camp Wi-Fi to catch up on your email. If you're here with a larger group, the campground has a clubhouse with a kitchen for preparing larger meals.
Each site has a picnic table and a fire ring for your private use and 30 or 50 amp electricity. Some of the sites have full hookups, and the rest have just water and electricity. There's an ATM on-site in case you're running low on funds and propane is for sale should you need some. From the campground, you can go hiking, mountain biking, or kayaking as you see fit, or head into San Francisco, which is just a short drive down the road. In fact, you'll want to take some time while you're here to take your RV rental out for a spin on the local highways; there is something invigorating about riding high above all the surrounding traffic in your rental RV, and it's an experience you don't want to miss.
Search for an RV in Marin County, and you'll have your choice from among a wide range of RV rentals to find the unit that is perfectly suited to you. Once you've chosen, your first stop should be Point Reyes National Seashore. This national park is a contrasting blend of ecosystems that includes sandy beaches and ocean waves breaking against rocky cliffs, which give way to open grasslands, undergrowth hillsides, and, finally, ridges supporting tree stands. You can come here to enjoy a nice hike and witness all of the natural surroundings and wildlife that use this area as their home and habitat.
San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge was created in 1974 as a safe haven for migratory birds. Its position within the Pacific Flyway makes it a natural stop for the bird species passing through, and it also protects the wetland ecosystems the migratory birds need and a number of endangered species. If you enjoy bird watching or observing wildlife in general, then this is an attraction you won't want to miss. While you're here, you can also enjoy boating and fishing; the park has several points of entry you can launch from. The park also offers environmental education and refuge interpretation programs that offer a better understanding of the area and a chance to gain a greater appreciation of it. You can even park your motorhome rental here and use it as a temporary bird and wildlife blind.
Golden Gate National Recreation Area is a combination of several distinct smaller regions that collectively represent the history and geography of the location. There are a number of forts that were important in U.S. Military history, especially during WWII. Alcatraz Island was once a Civil War military post before being designated as a military prison and finally (and most famously) as a federal penitentiary. While you're here, you can enjoy walking or hiking in Muir Woods, the only old-growth redwood forest in the world that's located along a shoreline. While you're on your walkabout, keep your eyes peeled for a National Historic Landmark that shows the spot where Gaspar de Portola, a Spaniard, first observed the San Francisco Bay area.
Woodacre is a small community near the coastline where you can relax and take a breath on your journey. The town has a meditation center you can visit to practice on your own or join in on a group activity. It was home at one time to actor-comedian Robin Williams, who lived here as a teenager.
If, however, you're starting to feel a need to return to urban life, San Rafael is a larger community with museums, art galleries, architecture, and more. One of the city's baseball parks is home to a semi-pro team, and you can catch a game here, order hot dogs and beer, and make an enjoyable evening of the game. San Rafael is also the obvious place to come if a hot dog just isn't enough; the city has a long list of food establishments, and it's unlikely you won't find what you're looking for, whether it's a particular cuisine, price range, or outdoor patio setting. It's a natural destination for seafood, and one of its venues has a seafood section on its Caribbean themed menu. If you find your way here, ask for the seafood jambalaya.
Petaluma, in comparison to the other urban settings, is slightly inland making it somewhat distinct. It has an intriguing history; on your visit here, make time to see the Rancho Petaluma Adobe, which was built in 1836. Many of the city's buildings survived the earthquake of 1906 that destroyed much of San Francisco, and a self-guided walking tour of the downtown area would be the perfect way to witness and appreciate this.
The San Francisco Bay area has it all, from ocean-side vistas to inland landscapes, history, culture, you name it, and it's here. Camping at Olema Campground is a great way to take all of it in.
