About Hawk Camp Campground

Description

High up in the Gerbode Valley is the remote Hawk Camp… The best place to get away from the city. Watch the fog roll through the hill from atop Hawk Hill, or make like a bobcat up the Bobcat trail. This is definitely the place to go for backpacking. P. S. it’s free!

The campground as a whole is the most secluded campground in the Marin Headlands. However, the three spots in this campground have little to no privacy from each other.

You can reserve a site one month in advance by calling the visitor center. The site is free but only one tent per site. The hike is short(2.5mi from Tennessee trailhead parking lot) but most of it is uphill with no shade. The last 100 meter or so is a steep uphill. There's no water at the site so you'll have to bring enough for the hike to/from plus cooking. The lowest site has a great view of the headlands and you can see parts of San Francisco. The upper two sites are less secluded(you can see directly from tent to tent) and the trees block the view a bit more. All in all Hawk camp is pretty cool but definitely prepare for a tough uphill hike.

Hip camp is wrong ( as with many many camp sites) and they do take reservations, & the sites are free! only 3 spots, the first lower one is under tree cover which makes it a bit wetter and cooler but is most private. no water, one port a potty, bear lockers
