Steep Ravine Cabins at Mt. Tam
- Accessible Parking
- Accessible Picnic Table
- Accessible Restroom
- Firewood for sale

Ten rustic cabins and a small campground, both with ocean views, perch on the rim of a steep ravine right off California’s scenic coastal Highway 1 near Stinson Beach. The cabins are in high demand so plan well in advance. Both the cabins and campground are located down a steep and winding road and an entry gate at the entry may be difficult to manage for those with limited dexterity.
A nearby .5-mile dirt-and-gravel fire road with several very steep sections may be accessible to some powered mobility devices.
The accessible campsite (#7) is accessed via a ramp from the parking lot and it has plenty of level space to pitch a tent. There is a picnic table, lowered food storage box and a raised grill.
