Fort Cronkhite, Golden Gate National Recreation Area

Photo of old Army buildings and Rodeo Beach at what was once Fort Cronkhite.

Old Fort Cronkhite

This is a view of Fort Cronkhite from a ridge to the south of it.  Fort Cronkhite was completed just before the attack on Pearl Harbor.  The wood-framed buildings were considered “temporary” and housed barracks, mess halls, kitchens etc.  They’re still very serviceable.  The western portion of Fort Cronkhite has been preserved as an historic landmark.  A portion of Rodeo Lagoon is visible between the beach and the buildings.
