Camping near San Francisco gives you hundreds of options, each with its own unique features.

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.

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.
