Three Bay Area Campsites friendly to A Teardrop Trailer
Need some camping suggestions?
Here are three of our favorite sites for you to tear-drop out of town...
Samuel P. is located in Lagunitas, CA, about 45 minutes north-west of San Francisco. It’s a short drive to a beautiful campground enclosed in the redwoods and perched by the Lagunitas creek—perfect for cooling off during the hot summer months. The park is open year-round and includes access to many hiking and biking trails, including one that leads to the top of the nearby Barnabe peak.
From the campground’s website: “You can camp among redwoods, bike along the creek, explore easy-to-moderate hiking trails, watch salmon spawn, relax in the shady picnic area, and learn the story of its namesake pioneer. When you’ve finished all that, more adventures await just next door at Point Reyes National Seashore.”
Samuel P. is a perfect campground for a teardrop, with plenty of spots to stop right next to large fireplaces and grills. Book now, because it fills up fast!

The Olema Campground is a much-loved favorite in the Bay Area. Located beside 60,000 acres of park land and wilderness, Olema is the perfect place to escape from it all. pack your hiking boots, jump in the teardrop, and spend a few days exploring the wide range of trials offered in this near-beach camping destination.
The campground also features incredible wildlife watching opportunities. The local family of fauna includes Tule Elk, coyotes, bobcats, foxes and seals. Occasionally, a humpback whale will cruise by!
The camp, finally, is located on a beautiful expanse of the California coast. If nature watching isn’t your speed, spend a leisurely afternoon relaxing on the beach, taking in a view that includes the Golden Gate Bridge, the whole San Francisco Bay, and Mount Tamalpais.

The Doran Regional Park campground features over 120 camping spots right on the beach. Approximately two hours from San Francisco, Bodega Bay is an incredible campground for the beach access it affords: over a 2-mile wide stretch of beach is perfect for walking, picnicking, playing beach volleyball, or simply relaxing with a good book.
If you’re looking for some time by the water, Bodega Bay might be perfect for you. There are also several beautiful, low-intensity trails that are easily accessible from the beach. And if you fancy yourself a birdwatcher, the Bird Walk Coastal Access Trail picks up at Doran as well.
