The third USS Intrepid was a barque in the United States Navy.

Her keel was laid down by the Mare Island Navy Yard. She was launched on 8 October 1904 sponsored by Miss Helen de Young and commissioned on 16 August 1907 with Commander Edward E. Capehart in command.

The steel bark was assigned to the Yerba Buena Training Station, San Francisco, California, for duty until 28 February 1912 when she became the receiving ship at the same station. The latter assignment lasted until 25 January 1914 when Intrepid became receiving ship at Mare Island Navy Yard, where she decommissioned 15 October.

Intrepid commissioned in ordinary at Mare Island Navy Yard on 11 November 1915 for use as a barracks for the men of submarines F-1, F-2, F-3, and F-4 of the Pacific Fleet. In 1920 she again became receiving ship at Mare Island Navy Yard. Intrepid decommissioned on 30 August 1921 and was sold on 20 December.
