Want to Camp After Labor Day? You're In Luck

San Francisco Chronicle columnist Tom Stienstra has good news for anyone who wants to reserve a campsite in the Bay Area: now that Labor Day is over, you'll probably be able to find a spot—even at places like Point Reyes, Angel Island, and Big Basin Redwoods. The only catch? Saturday nights are still popular and might not be available until the middle of October.
