It is a 1 1/4-mile walk from Ayala Cove where ferries dock to the immigration station on the island's northeast tip.

    Camp Reynolds at Angel Island State Park. The camp was built in 1863 to defend San Francisco Bay during the Civil War. At the time, the British sympathized with the Confederacy, and it was feared the powerful British Navy might invade the nascent Golden State. The camp also marks the start of a century of continuous military activity on Angel Island. ÒItÕs one of the most extensive surviving complexes of military and government buildings, in one area, that IÕve ever seen,Ó said John Martini, a Marin County resident and retired National Park Service military historian. ÒItÕs a jewel.Ó June 18, 2010
