Details

We will be camping at Camp Tamarancho, the Marin Council camp with over 480 acres of meadows, redwoods, and oak-forested campsites.  Tamarancho is one of the few places where you can still find legal singletrack trails in Marin County, the birthplace of mountain biking!

Ghilotti campsite is a great campsite for large groups. It is one of two drive-in campsites with ample parking. There is an A-frame, BBQs, picnic tables,  toilet building, and plenty of shade. The site has a beautiful view of Mt. Tamalpais
