Lawson’s Landing is a privately-owned campground and resort on a wide sandy beach known as Sand Point at the entrance to Tomales Bay. The resort caters to tent and RV campers, fishermen, and boaters looking for a place to stay while exploring the protected waters of Tomales Bay.
The beach at Lawsons Landing is both long and wide with more sand square footage than other beaches in the area. It’s located just south of the small community of Dillon Beach in northern Marin County.
Many campgrounds that are only accessible by boat are available along the Point Reyes National Seashore across the bay. Before heading out in your boat or kayak, consult the national park website for camping regulations. Note that due to the location of this point at the mouth of the bay, currents can be strong.
To get to Lawson’s Landing turn onto Dillon Beach Road from the town of Tomales on Highway 1. In Dillon Beach head south on Cliff Street which leads to Lawsons Landing. There is an entrance booth and they’ll collect a nominal day-use fee for spending the day at Lawson’s wonderful beach.
