Great place to backpack right on the water. Moderate hike good for older kids. Note stream crossing about 3/4 miles in. Tables and fire rings at campsites. Bass fishing is productive off the banks. Best to go in fall and early spring to avoid the heat and summer boat-in overnighters.

I was stunned to have the whole place to myself during a week were every hike-in site along the point Reyes seashore was booked up. Here in the pristine live oaks nothing but empty sites as far as the eye can see. I will mention that because of the spring rains the first creek crossing was running a bit high (knee level, I’m 5’5”)
