Samuel P. Taylor State Park
Winter camping for San Francisco means the same breathtaking experience as the rest of the year but fewer crowds, rain-fresh air, flowing rivers, migrating California gray whales and off-season specials. Whether campers set up a romantic tent for two or check into a new cabin, they will enjoy a majestic getaway at what seems like a world away.
The National Park Service has come to the rescue of three California parks -two in Marin County – that were scheduled to close because of state budget cuts.
It might be a last-ditch effort, but movers-and-shakers in Marin County believe they can prevent Samuel P. Taylor State Park in San Geronimo from closing.
Gov. Jerry Brown’s administration is proposing to close a quarter of all state parks because of budget cuts approved by the state Legislature.
