Ben Ries Campground
Butano State Park is tucked away in the coastal mountains only 3 miles inland from Pescadero along the San Mateo County coast. The quiet state park offers a comfortable place to camp close to many nearby attractions, including Ano Nuevo State Park, a string of beautiful beaches along the San Mateo coast, and Half Moon Bay.
Ben Ries Campground is set in a dense redwood forest with limited sunlight filtering through the trees. Half of the campsites in Ben Ries Campground are standard sites which will accommodate tents and small RVs or trailers. The other half are walk-in, tent-only sites, usually only a short distance from the parking area.
Reservations for all Portola Redwoods State Park campsites are available from 2 days up to 7 months in advance. Reservations become available in one-month blocks on the first of the month, 7 months in advance. For example, on January 1 campsite reservations become available for all of July.
