Walker Creek Ranch is in the rolling hills of West Marin County, between Petaluma and Tomales Bay, about one hour's drive north of San Francisco, California. It's quiet and beautiful, with an abundance of wildlife and miles of hiking trails, a swimming pond, healthy and delicious food, and various accommodation options (ranging from private rooms to RV and tent camping to day-commuter).


The price (meals included) for a full time camper if you're camping in a tent or RV is $500. It's a little less ($475) if you're commuting (not recommended unless you live close by), and more to stay in a dorm room ($550), a "semi-private" room ($650 for 3-5 people or $700 for two people in the room), or a private room ($750), limited availability for private rooms. If you're on a really tight budget, there are ways to reduce the cost; feel free to call for more information if these prices sound too high for you. Prices are less for kids age ten and under, call for details. Late fees are added to all prices after March 1st, and the late fees increase after April 1st. Late fees can be waived for first-time campers who find out about the camp after the late fee dates, or in exchange for doing one or more camp chores. Scholarships and work-trades are also available, more info on the FAQs page.

Can't get your bass to camp, or need a loaner? Just ask. (Thanks to our bass angel, Steve Swan!)
