Cabin in the Redwoods

Samuel P Taylor Cabins

Want to camp in the redwoods, minus the whole pitching a tent and sleeping on the ground thing? Samuel P. Taylor State Park has you covered! The new Madrone Cabins give you the camping experience with the creature comforts of a simple cabin and beds to sleep in. Each of the five newly built A-frame cabins is 12 feet by 20 feet, has a hardwood floor, and sleeps up to five people in bunk beds (you’ll need to bring your own sleeping bags). They also have electric heaters, designed to look like wood stoves. And as if things couldn’t get any more civilized, you’ll also enjoy lights and electricity—illuminating the fact that, yes, camping can be fun! Spend the day exploring the park’s 2,800 acres on foot or by bike. The paved Cross Marin Trail is a fantastic and easy trail that parallels Lagunitas Creek. If you just want to hang out and picnic it’s only a 10-minute walk from the cabins to the shady picnic areas by the creek. At night, cook up a meal on the barbeque grill (there’s one at each cabin) or light up a campfire in the fire ring. If your ghost stories get too real, feel free to lock the door to your cabin. Good night, sleep tight under the redwoods … and the A-frame!

The Madrone Cabins are on an online reservation system. They are $100 per night. No dogs.
