17 RV Parks near Concord, California
May 2010 - $30.00
This is mostly a mobile home park. There are sites for RVs and some have been there a very long time. The park is poorly maintained. The limited staff is friendly. It has very limited laundry. There is some train noise in the park. Likely would not stay there again. Parking a 40' MH was very difficult and I had to trim some trees to get in. - Workamper04

A long, slow, steep and curvy road to the Juniper Campground near the top around 3,000 feet. Our trailer is 20 feet, which is just about the limit. Dry camping. Juniper is the only campground on Mount Diablo with showers. Contrary to the web site, the showers were operational in July 2009. Also no dump sites on the mountain. There is a campground (Live Oak) nearer the bottom at the south entrance out of Danville. It took us 40 minutes minimum to get up and down the mountain to Walnut Creek, North Gate. But it was worth it. The views down on the valley below are phenomenal, especially the sunsets. There are many, many trails to hike if you are in good shape. Bicyclers are always going up and down the main road (scary!). Not many critters to see though. If you want seclusion, great air, great views, don't mind dry-camping and don't have a big rig, this is a great place to decompress. See the web site for descriptions of the many other worthwhile places in the park. There are other campgrounds; Live Oak is at 1400 feet, with 22 sites, and an open area at the Junction Ranger Station has 6 sites. - User424

This park is rather small but comfortable, safe & well lit at night. There's nothing fancy about it. There isn't any green space or outdoor areas (except next to your trailer), but I had room to have both of my slides out plus my awning. My stay there was very enjoyable & having a camp host living on site is an added bonus. She is extremely helpful, if you need anything. She keeps everything running smoothly & keeps the grounds clean. The only negatives to this park is that there isn't any wi-fi or bathrooms/showers. On Saturdays there is a flea market and the speedway in the evening, so that can get a bit noisy. - Karen Baka

My husband and I have stayed here possibly 20 times over the last 8 years. It is very no frills and basic. Power, water and sewer. It had a very attractive rate of 20 dollars (self registration and pay) and if there was an open space you backed in and enjoyed. We pulled in and now the rate is 30 dollars and there is a camp host. Yet there was a handwritten sign in the window of the camp hosts unit that they were gone for a few days and DO NOT back in or dump (for a fee you can dump your tanks). This was incredibly disheartening. There were open available spaces and the self register kiosk thing was still there. We did not want to break any rules informal or otherwise so we moved on and won't come back. - Michele Rene

Good in a pinch. On-site camp host available. Safe enough place to leave to go into San Francisco for the day but not someplace to stay for the heck of it. Curious how a county owned facility doesn't have to comply with health and sanitation issues in not having bath facilities available? Wi-fi seems to be worse than previous visits, connections dropped and was unable to access basic e-mail functions. No outside setup, no BBQ grills, chairs, etc. - N West

Park is located in a very "seedy" community. Lot's of vagrants hanging around the park, the street in front, the slummy looking motel next door. We didn't feel safe & were scared when we left our coach. There were a number of what appeared to be abandoned RV's in park with flat tires, broken glass, etc. Mostly permanent party campers that were blue collar workers rather than tourists. We felt like we were definitely NOT in the right place as tourists. Spaces very narrow. With slides out you can barely walk between units. Picnic table is a waste & in the way because of the skinny sites. Laundry room was filthy, lint dust everywhere. No change available and office was not available according to their hours posted. They opened late and closed early so office was undependable! Female working the reception desk had a bad attitude! Always! She wouldn't take her eyes off of her computer and would ask, "Do you need something?" No good morning, Hi, How can I help you, etc, etc. Made me feel that I was putting her out every time I entered the office. There was a vagrant watching our unit, sitting across from us in a car for over 2 hours one morning. When I reported it to the camp hosts they were sassy and told me off for not minding my own business! This was the worst RV park experience in my life. I've been camping & RV'ing since the 1960's. - Denny L

Good friendly service for a big city campground. Most units appeared to be long-term people working in the area. Hwy noise is prominent. Site not level despite asphalt pad. Two foot grass patch between sites. Laundry on site. Wifi slow, cable Is mostly SD channels and grainy. - Sasquatchewan

Fine for an overnight stay, especially if you do not need to use their restrooms. Park is okay and lady at desk was very nice/helpful & they provide good information.
Park is hard to find - you need to do a hairpin turn immediately after leaving freeway and go back under the over bridge on a frontage road.
Lot of permanents and is right beside freeway but noise was bearable. Restrooms are in need of cleaning and refurbishment. - Kiwigirl

Stayed in a site with FHU. Very narrow road inside park and site pad was narrow and short. Our site was on the side of the hill so everything off the pad was uneven but this is expected in a regional park. The park itself is gorgeous and you truly get the feel of being in the middle of nowhere. Sites were spaced far enough apart that we didn't hear our neighbors on either side. The road in is an older, narrow, winding road which was an adventure pulling our trailer up and down. We would definitely stay here on a visit to the Bay Area. - WoodShed22

This campground is only 30 minutes from central Oakland. We were in site 12, which fit my 25' trailer just fine. My tow vehicle had to park perpendicular. Some of the RV/utility sites are close, and others are widely spaced. Ours was the latter - perhaps the best of the 12 utility sites in my opinion. The access roads are narrow and a bit twisty. Only the first 6 sites would probably work for a rig in the 30+ range. There are no facilities/playgrounds for children, but we did some hiking and spent the rest of our free time in Oakland or SF. There are a couple pig green grassy areas that are good for a ball game. The campground is very quiet. We saw turkeys, deer and raccoons. If you have a long haired dog, like I do - keep them out of the dry summer grasses. There are so many burrs and sticky seeds, it will be a disaster for your dog. Short hair dogs are probably fine. I checked, and there were lots of TV channels available for a broadcast antenna, but so many eucalyptus trees that a satellite dish might have problems. They were allowing campfires, so we indulged ourselves every night. I would happily stay here again. - SeaTeacher

This park is about 20 miles from home for me so it was a great quick getaway. Some sites are pretty close to each other but on the edge of the loops you'll find lots of open space outside your door. The gun range is close, but was only background noise for us, and stops at 5:00pm so we were never bothered by it. You'll find a ton of hiking and biking trails, plus some pretty good fishing here.
Redwood Road is windy, and doesn't have much of a shoulder, but you'll find pullouts fairly often. Also, watch out for the cyclists, they're on the road any time of the day, every day of the week. In California you much give cyclists a 3 ft clearance when passing. - MadAdventures

The road, after you leave Hwy 160 is a Levy Road which is very narrow.....no it is extremely narrow. If you like the wind this is the place for you. It seems to be a great place for wind surfing but I don't. Wouldn't ever stay their again. - RvStarShip

This is a very nice campground that is out in the middle of nowhere. Access is down a long narrow bumpy levee road. The campground is very clean, with large, level, easy back-in sites. We were in a site that backed up to the levee. We could walk up to the top of the levee, cross the narrow road and be at the edge of the river. There are benches placed along the rivers edge. We were able to watch boats and windsurfers on the river. It can get very windy here. We used this location to visit my daughter in Walnut Creek, which was about a 30 minute drive from the campground. Crossing the Antioch bridge from south of the campground is a $5 toll for 2 axels. If you are towing a trailer it becomes $20. We aproached the campground from I5 and then cut over on the 12 and avoided the toll with the trailer. We had AT&T signal, there is no wifi or other amenities in the campground. The people that checked us in were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. - corgi1

For starters, yes, it is very windy here. Which in the summer is not a bad thing. The week I stayed here the temperatures hovered around 100 degrees each day so the winds were a welcome relief. The camp sites are spacious and paved. The bathrooms and facilities are clean and overall the campground is very, very clean. But there are some very real cons to staying here.
1.) This campground is located north of the Antioch Bridge, which crosses the San Joaquin River linking Antioch, California with Sherman Island in southern Sacramento County. This means every time you come back from the city to the campground you pay $5 toll to cross the bridge.
2.) There are no laundry facilities on site and the nearest laundromat is 10 miles away...and you pay a $5 toll coming back across the bridge.
3.) The gates to the RV park close at 10 PM. You can still drive in and out of the park after 10 PM, but the gates are not automatic, which means opening and closing them in high winds is a hassle. And they kind of highlight the fact that there are seedy people fishing along the canal adjacent to the RV park at night.
4.) Only UPS and FedEx deliver to the RV park. The USPS does NOT. So if you want deliveries you better make sure they are coming from UPS and FedEx ONLY. Remember, both services use USPS to deliver packages, too. So even if you think your supplies are coming from UPS and FedEx, they don't always arrive that way. Your only recourse is then driving 10 miles to the post office to pick up your packages.
5.) The road to and from the RV park on Sherman Island is bumpy. Very bumpy. You better drive 25 to 35 mph on that sucker or else everything in your cupboards will end up on the floor. I kid you not.
6.) Internet is not really available. There is a WiFI company that provides Internet to people who stay here, but for a fee. However, in the week I stayed there I was never ever able to connect. And according to one of the site managers, using is isn't cheap and it is super slow.
On the plus side, you get two nights free after paying for a 5 nights stay. - Johnny Blood

Extremely friendly staff. We were parked next door to the owners home. There are a lot of full timers and some of the units not to pretty. Having said that we never felt unsafe. This park is an oasis in the middle of a suburban neighborhood. Lots of pets around, but no green grass for their use. Our old dog did not have any trouble with using the blacktop but the younger dog would not use it. We had to go off grounds for her. It is a convenient place to park if you are going to visit San Francisco. The transit station is close by if you are smart enough to understand how to use it. I believe the way to visit San Francisco is to fly in, rent a hotel and transportation and leave the RV at home. If we were in the area again and needed to stay a night or two in the area, we would stay here again. - cubadoug

This is not a "resort" type facility by any standard, but OK for a few nights visiting family in the area. The "daily" sites are toward the front, with the rest being long term residents. That being said, it was a quiet spot in an urban environment. There aren't many choices in the Bay Area, and this was fine for a few days. This place has been around for 75 years! Very helpful staff. - ronboett

We stayed in a 37 ft motorhome and it was tight getting to our site. Once in site we could open both slides and still have some room. Park is run down but the manager couple are working on upgrades. 50 amp power was issue, had low voltage on one leg but we got by. Water, you need a regulator as I was told by the manager, did have sewer. No wifi or cable. We used for base since we were here to visit San Francisco and the rate was ok. Several residents with old campers, they were living in. We would not stay again. No picnic tables. - belanga

1. Agree with two reviews preceeding mine. The place is ok for a 1-nighter but we didn't sleep well. Probably over reacting but sometimes you just gotta trust your gut. 2. The maintenance guy, Bart, and neighbor Debbie were super friendly. We arrived late and both came out to help us right away and make sure we settled in fine and told us where we could park our tow rigs. 3. We were told to lock our doors and that sometimes cars just drive through the place. 4. Super close to six flags, which is why we stayed here. 5. Stayed one night and are moving to Marin RV Park. - fandrica

First the good things about this park: location, location, location. The park is in Valejo, within a 15 minute drive to the ferry where there is free parking and a ferry with a one hour ride to San Francisco. The price we paid reflects the weekly rate, and seemed quite reasonable for RV parks in the San Francisco area. The operators of this park are very helpful. Now for the negative. This is an older park, not particularly attractive, mostly occupied by permanent residents who live in older rigs. The hookups all work, but they are old and antiquated. For example the electrical hookup was on a post about 6 feet off the ground. There are a couple of newer sites, but they were really too short for our 40 foot RV, so we chose a site next to the permanent or semi-permanent residents. We stayed here for 2 weeks, and given its reasonable price and great location, we would stay here again. - hoppytoad

The park itself sits on a quiet delta but be cautious of the road it is really neglected and there is a very large rise between the lower and levy road. Enter from the north end of the levy road not the one closest to the Antioch bridge. Mostly grassy sites with open views of the surrounding delta. A few days before we expected to arrive I called to make a reservation, offered up my credit card to secure it and the reservation agent said she didn't want our credit card information, only asking for out name and phone number. The length of our RV and how many in our party. Arrived at the park late-afternoon and no one was present so we proceeded into park. I walked up to front to search for a host to be met by a gentleman telling us they are booked solid through the 1st. I tell him we have a reservation to which he replies "we'll see about that". Save yourself a trip to this RV park if you have a conversion; management does not accept bus conversions or similar 'vintage' but well-maintained camping units. - N West

Staff is friendly and they also are very helpful. Except for the wind and birds, there is no noise at the park but people driving off. I enjoyed the quiet and the people. Spaces are either in full sunlight or nestled in the tall trees. My spot had a tree that grew alongside the spot, so it was tricky backing into the site. Lots of birds, so bird droppings can be a problem. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Rate is for monthly rate. Stayed 3 months. - Woolibaar

The rate includes our small boat being docked. This is a pretty nice park/location as the Delta goes. I probably would not come here unless you had another reason to be on this area of the Delta. Gravel sites with good shade and large, mature trees. The sites on either side of us were open, but if they were occupied, there wouldn't have been a lot of room. It gets very windy even though the sites are lower than the levee. The road in is a very narrow levee road. The entrance to the road closer to the Antioch Bridge has a very steep narrow turn. The road coming in from near the Sherman/Brannan Island drawbridge is better. The owners were very helpful and friendly. - sigepsb

I stayed at this mobile home park with my 36' motorhome in 2009 for about 6 months. It is clean and well cared for, management on site are very nice people. However, the owners are very stiff in any dealings and do not bend under any circumstances. They will allow 1(one) pet: cat or dog under 30 pounds. If you have 2 cats or dogs and they don't even add up to 30 pounds together, even they are not allowed. People have had to get rid of their pets if they live here. They have rules for every little thing. They are big sticklers about even the smallest thing. If you are human and could very possibly make an error, I would not suggest you come to this park. Even on a per night basis, if you have more than one pet you are not allowed. It is an $18 charge for your credit check, they have an application that asks questions that are, quite frankly none of their business. Motorhomes are to be started at least once a week and even starting them monthly or longer for your required 10-20 minute period is not allowed. If the electricity fails and it is winter time: Do NOT start your generator. It doesn't matter that it's cold and you have no heat. They came over at 10pm and said I had to turn it off. What??? One is not allowed heat? Not a place to stay if you are a person that some how has faults or actually plans to live life! - justme2

This mobile home park was a disgrace. The owner did not allow very many things and the rent itself is over priced. The owner overcharges her patrons and refuses to let the owners sell their mobile homes. She changes the rules about every six months and a lot of the rules don't even make sense. I would also like to point out that the rules themselves are unfair. We will not be staying there again. I would not recommend this park to anyone unless they are very rich and very patient. - Rayvn

Sandev Mobile Park in San Leandro on the east side of the San Francisco bay is quite nice. It is mostly mobile homes but has some RV spots. All spots are clean, wide and well maintained. All sites are back in. They have wireless in the office area, and some sites can pick it up inside the RV. The place is remarkably quiet except for the occasional train, which run mostly in the daytime. IMO, it is much better than constant freeway noise. The place is cash only, $40 a night or $220 a week. I think it is a good deal if you want to go to places on the east side of the bay. The BART station is a couple miles away, and the Ferry from Alameda to SF is a nice ride. - Daveyjo
