Hammocks at Point Reyes on 10/25/2013 15:59:33 MDT Print View

I found a list of suitable hammock camps on the hammock forums. I am curious if anyone has firsthand experience. Three sites each are listed at Glen and Sky camps.

I've only been to Wildcat camp, but there are definitely no hammock spots. I had to pitch my tarp off a picnic table (normally use trees).
I don't know about the other camps.

Certainly possible at Glen. The spot up and in the back.

NPS provides air photos of each Point Reyes campground, complete with camp site numbers.

Sky Camp sites 5, 6, 7, 11, or 12 might work for a hammock. Those sites are in the trees or surrounded by trees.

You could call and ask:

Thanks, all for the replies. I've checked out the aerial views but cannot distinguish enough detail. I suppose I'll just need to take a look.
