Camping near San Francisco gives you hundreds of options, each with its own unique features. Travel about 8 miles north to the Marin Headlands and enjoy camping with occasional views of Golden Gate Bridge. Find a multitude of camping options available via public transportation including train, bus, or ferry and grab a weeknight micro-adventure to Mare Island Preserve or Angel Island Park. Adventurous campers wanting an activity-filled trip choose from rock climbing, caving, and horseback riding at the 22,000 acre Mount Diablo State Park. Plan far in advance for a visit to Steep Ravine Cabins and Campground and relax in one of the cliff-side cabins overlooking the ocean.

Campers don't have to leave San Francisco to feel close to nature. Set up camp in Rob Hill and find a peaceful oasis in the heart of the city. Whether you prefer to stay close by, head to the ocean, or find a quiet space among the redwoods, San Francisco has something to offer campers of all levels.

Angel Island State Park sits on the bay's largest island. Today it is only reached by boat, but visitors once could walk to it at low tide.

Why can't I book these on Hipcamp?

Great place for a beginners backpacking trip. We stayed at campsite #6. It was very secluded and quiet. You can walk from the coast camp sites on a short trail to the beach. Huge Beach with beautiful sand and not too many people around.

After you set up your tent be sure to explore the property and meet the animals. There are chickens, turkeys, goats, emus, a burro, doves, a llama, cats, and dogs.
The burro likes carrots better than apples, if you happen to have any.
I stayed after a rainstorm and everything was green and lush.
Bring an apple to make friends with this sweet llama.
Three goats live in the barn and love to show off their trickster skills.
