Making a Reservation
COVID-19 safety measures and modifications are in place for overnight camping at Rob Hill. Camping group sizes will be limited to a maximum of 8 people from the same household per campsite and face coverings are required. The 8 person/single household maximum will remain in place until at least the end of June.
New reservations will continue to be restricted to the 8 person/single household maximum. In the event that local public health orders are revised to allow for larger group sizes, permit holders with reservations for dates on or after July 1, 2021, will be given the opportunity to increase their group size to the maximum allowed by public health orders or up to 30 people per campsite, whichever number is smaller. Group size increases are not guaranteed or permitted until the Presidio Trust issues a revised permit to reservation holders. Campground fees are subject to change when the campground returns to its normal capacity of up to 30 people per campsite.
See updated Terms and Conditions for more information.
All guests staying at Campgrounds and Lodging Facilities should follow the recommendations concerning non-essential travel and quarantine set forth in the State of California’s Travel Advisory.
