Named for Clement Woodnutt Miller, the United States Representative who authored the legislation to establish Point Reyes National Seashore, the Clem Miller Environmental Education Center is located in a secluded valley in the Phillip Burton Wilderness just two miles from Limantour Beach. The Center accommodates up to 89 overnight guests in five spacious dormitory-style cabins furnished with wooden bunkbeds and mattresses. The cabins are solidly built of pine and have an open-beam design and ample skylights but no electricity or running water. Bed linens are not provided; each guest brings their own warm sleeping bag and pillow. Facilities include a large cedar lodge with dining room, library science center and commercial kitchen. The site also includes a bathhouse with private, solar-heated hot showers, a large central meadow, a campfire center and immediate access to hiking trails.
The Center is designed as a model of ecological sustainability with composting and recycling systems, solar-heated water and photovoltaic modules providing electricity.
There is no internet or mobile phone service, offering everyone a welcome respite from the fast-paced world.
