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.
Fort Baker was previously named the Lime Point Military Reservation. It was renamed in 1897.
Fort Baker was included in a historic district listing on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, as part of Forts Baker, Barry, and Cronkhite.
Fort Baker features essentially intact historic structures and landscapes, and is currently under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service (NPS). It is renowned for its spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay.

  • 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.
  • This is a good place to take photos with the bridge being a nice backdrop. It was pretty during sunset. I would like to go again. I would like to try to take some night shots next time. It is a nice place to come to in SF.
