Rob Hill Campground Presidio of San Francisco The Presidio Trust

The only overnight campsites within San Francisco are located at the Presidio of San Francisco. Rob Hill Campground is situated at the Presidio’s highest point, an often fog-shrouded hill overlooking Baker Beach and the Pacific Ocean. Educational programs for camping groups are conducted by The Presidio Trust, Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, National Park Service and Bay Area Wilderness Training. The Ohlone Indians inhabited this site before the Juan Bautista de Anza expedition arrived and established a Spanish Presidio nearby in 1776. U.S. Army occupation began in 1852 and the hill served as a lookout station. It was operated by the Army as a campground for Scouts after World War II until the Presidio became a national park site. Rob Hill Campground was expanded in 2010 with improvements that included accessible NaturalPAVE® XL Resin Pavement™ installations surrounding building facilities and connecting campgrounds, picnic sites and the communal fire circle.
