Marin Garden Club Group Camp

Marin Garden Club Group Camp is located in a redwood grove along the Avenue of the Giants, a short distance north of Weott. Campers here enjoy swimming, hiking, cycling, and fishing. The group camp's central location makes a great base from which to visit the rest of the park.

ReserveCalifornia Reservations Tips

California State Parks' new reservation system - ReserveCalifornia - now allows campers "to make reservations 6 months to the day in advance of their arrival date." For example, on January 1 reservations can be made for stays beginning on July 1. In the past, reservations were released in one-month blocks. Now it is day by day. For months with fewer days than the month 6 months away, reservations for the remaining days will be released in a small cluster on the first of the next month. For example, on March 1 (because February is a short month) you can make reservations for stays beginning August 29-31. Read details at ReserveCalifornia.
