San Francisco's Rob Hill Campground recently underwent a multimillion dollar renovation to make it more accessible and look less manicured and human-managed. The only tent camping area within the city’s limits, its four acres sit among eucalyptus trees at one of the highest points in the Presidio, towering hundreds of feet in elevation above San Francisco Bay. Rob Hill’s four group campsites can fit as many as 30 people. You’ll find a fire ring, toilets, and picnic tables, but no showers.

COST: $100 per site, per day
