Fort Baker is one of the components of California's Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The Fort, which borders the City of Sausalito in Marin County and is connected to San Francisco by the Golden Gate Bridge, served as an Army post until the mid-1990s, when the headquarters of the 91st Division moved to Parks Reserve Forces Training Area. It is located opposite Fort Point at the entrance to the San Francisco Bay.Plan trip to San Francisco with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

I loved Fort Baker. It's beautiful. Amazing view under the Golden gate. Great place to picnic, and watch the boats, or fish. It's a great place to explore with a bonus historical significance. Great family place.
