  • Cold at night in late December, but perfect day time hike, he pioneer tree trail. The big tree energy here and all through the campground is incredible! For a warmer more strenuous hike walk up to Barnabe Peak. I'm guessing great views from there although that's my journey tomorrow. Pick the campsite by the creek for some wonderfully peaceful white noise. Happy!
  • Beautiful trails. Clean air. But too many people do not follow the rules pertaining to dogs. People took their dogs on the no dog trails. I would have loved to take my dogs, but I understand that the environmental damage that dogs cause to the parks ecosystem. I just wish more people followed the rules.
  • Always 5 stars for Samuel P Taylor. Most convenient car camping campground for San Francisco residents by far. Great with kids!
  • Great camping spot. Bathrooms were great where I camped. Clean, hot water, water fountains. There is also a campfire bowl and a grill.
  • Oooh to be naturely. Bobcat. So close to the City. Quiet nature. If you're into it, bring a guide book. Binoculars. Stars. Check out. Lovely. Lovely. So Peaceful on a Tues. Rush Rush Gotta go Gotta get bread gotta go Get Cheese gotta get cheap gas Gotta Go Time! Aaargh
