Camping on Angel Island

Welp, everybody will be happy to hear that we went camping on Angel Island, and did not get stranded there.

We managed to hike every last inch of trail on the island, and see every last thing there was to see, in about 24 hours.

There were way more deserted, crumbling buildings on the island than I had expected to see. I mostly expected nature trails and stuff. It was kind of creepy and Fallout-ish.

It was all really easy hiking, but it was fun to see San Francisco and The Bay from a different perspective.

I am now officially in the last year of my 20’s! Here’s to a great year.

  1. I’m so glad this worked out. I was very anxious about the plan after reading last week’s update…

    I’ve visited Angel Island but never camped there. I’d really like to, some day.

    1. Thanks! It was a huge relief to hear that we could take the state boat. I would recommend camping there, it was super fun. I’d say (if you can) take campsites 1, 2, 3; or 4, 5, 6. Campsites 7, 8, and 9 were… not as good. They were big flat bare patches of dirt. Good for a group of 20 people throwing a party maybe, but not my idea of a good campsite.
