While Berkeley is part of the highly urban Bay Area, if you're willing to drive just a bit, you can find nearby camping options that let you get out of the city and under the open sky. Enjoy roughing it within sight of San Francisco and the Oakland Bay Bridge when you take the ferry ride to Angel Island State Park; be prepared to hike a couple of miles to get to your campsite. Across the Bay, Mount Tamalpais State Park puts you right over the Pacific Ocean. Pitch your tent or opt for cabins from the 1940s, and don't miss the nighttime astronomy lecture at the mountain theater. Head inland from Berkeley, and you may find yourself 3,000 feet high and enjoying expansive views from Mount Diablo State Park. Enjoy glamping at Whiskey Ranch, where you can luxuriate in a tipi that features a queen-sized bed, rugs, and a solar charger for your mobile devices. Ask them about hosting your next retreat or family reunion as well.
