Bear Valley Visitor Center
0.5 miles from Olema along Bear Valley Road
Campers may use campsites in the Point Reyes National Seashore year-round, but because of its proximity to San Francisco, the campsites are in great demand. Campsites are located along the Pacific Coast and in the Phillip Burton Wilderness area. These are back-country sites and are accessible only by hiking, biking or horseback. There is no car camping available in the park. Camping is limited to four nights per visit, with a maximum of 30 nights per year. Camping is by permit only, and permits must be obtained from the Bear Valley Visitor Center before proceeding to the campsite. Campsites may be reserved up to six months in advance by visiting Recreation.gov or by calling toll free 877-444-6777. To reach the visitor center directly, you can call (415) 464-5100 between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
