Adan. there are I think 5 different places to camp at Point Reyes. All of them are fantastic places to stay. Both coastal camps have great beach access and have great views. No fires are allowed and you have to camp at designated sites. Usually you have to make reservations in advance due to the proximity of Point Reyes and San Francisco. We held our first two BPL gatherings there. Search this site for photos. Well worth the drive to come up here. Loop hikes are available

Although fires are not allowed at the campsites themselves, you can get a permit for a beach fire. The coastal camps are really close to accessible beaches, so that we always had a fire when camping there. You can find more information here

How did you get a pic of the falls without a ton of people about? Nice place, even for this mountain boy who came down from the mountains to bp a few days last Spring with our group from NorthCA Hiking. We camped at another CG, but hiked down to the beach and falls in the afternoon, after the young people took a knap and I scouted about while they got their beauty sleep.:)
