Rob Hill Campground reopened in May 2010 after a 20-month renovation made possible by a grant to the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy by the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund
The campground, located in the heart of the Presidio, offers the only overnight camping in San Francisco.
The renovation of Rob Hill Campground was part of a larger effort to transform the Presidio into a great national park for all.
The renovated campground includes four group campsites that can accommodate 30 people each, new restroom facilities and a large stone campfire circle.
The renovations also included construction of an indoor "Great Room" and plenty of outdoor space for educational uses.
"One of the many passions that my parents shared was creating opportunities for people to enjoy great public spaces and to connect with nature," said Walter J. Haas, chair of the Haas, Jr. Fund, at the opening ceremony for Rob Hill Campground.
Rob Hill Campground is available to the public for group camping by advance permit.
The campground is also home to the Camping at the Presidio (CAP) program, which provides camping experiences for children who might otherwise not have the opportunity to visit a national park.
Thanks to the CAP program, thousands of children from communities throughout the Bay Area visit Rob Hill Campground every year.
"Rob Hill Campground is a tribute to the idea that every single one of us should have the opportunity to camp under the stars, enjoy a s'more cooked over the campfire, and wake up in the woods to the sounds of nature," Wally Haas said at the campground's reopening.
