Camp with us at the Mare Island Preserve during our annual Mare Faire and Fennel Fest, Friday and/or Saturday night, Aug 10 and 11, 2018. The campsites are in the field near our visitor center and perfect for "sleeping with fennel and stars". There's a good chance you will see the Perseids meteors this weekend early, early in the morning the hour before dawn, depending on the air quality and fog and, well, if you can wake-up enough at that hour! Close to everything you desire in a campsite, the porta potty, a food prep area, propane grill and camp stove and our evening campfire, depending on air quality. Your campsite is a short, very short walk across the field from your vehicle and the hub bub of the visitor center. It's barebones with tables and hangout areas at the visitor center.

Very interesting place. Beautiful views of San Pablo Bay and Carquinez Straights. Was a little noise from turbine at refinery across the straights in Rodeo

Cheap place to lay your head down if you're driving around the bay. Upon arrival, you'll probably be confused as you drive through a desolate industrial park and stumble upon this camp. Fairly private spaces if there aren't a lot of campers. They were flat and grassy which provided comfort. Myrna provided excellent communication.

Try it out!
