Samuel P. Taylor State Park’s landscape ranges from shady canyon redwood groves to oak-studded grasslands to the
rolling hills atop Mount Barnabe. Nestled in 2,882 acres of wooded countryside in west Marin County, the park invites
visitors to camp, bike, ride horses and savor a piece of paradise.
The main campground has over 50 campsites with
restrooms, hot quarter operated showers and piped
drinking water. Some parking spaces can accommodate
small trailers, but none have hookups. Four wood
cabins, each holding up to 5 people, are also available
with electricity, platform bunk beds with mattresses,
wood floor, covered porch and a small electric heater.
Six group campsites, accommodating 10-50 people,
as well as a horse camp, may be reserved. Madrone
Group Camp #1 has space for up to 50 people. Three
small group sites can accommodate 10-15 people,
depending on the site. There are three sites at Devil’s
Gulch. Two tent-only sites can each accommodate up to
10 people. The larger equestrian campsite has a corral,
hitching racks and water troughs; it can accommodate
up to 20 people and is reserved for equestrians only.
