Close packed sites, essentially an RV storage layout with a pool. Clean, and since it is the ONLY RV park in the area, and since housing prices are in the millions, the nightly cost is appropriate for the San Francisco area.

Sited on the Contra Costa Wetland Marsh is a huge plus, as walking the dogs, or jogging or just enjoying the bay is possible right through the back fence.

The entire place is gravel (no grass or trees) with railroad tie type wood between spaces. The showers and rest rooms are very clean.

If you have to stay in the bay area, I recommend this place even though pricey. There is some noise from the freeway, but the seagulls and views to San Quentin make up for that, in my opinion. We camped at Marin Park in a Truck Camper.

This is a no frills park but has very helpful and friendly staff. It does have a significant amount of traffic noise but otherwise quiet. We chose it because of its location to the ferry. It is within an easy 10 min. walk to the ferry that takes you into San Francisco. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

As someone else said, it's all about the location. We stayed here so we could take the Larkspur ferry to San Francisco. One of the female staff at check in was awesome and knows everything about everywhere. The park rules say that dogs aren't supposed to be left alone and there's a woman who's a full timer who will dog sit. She took care of our 3 dogs. It's right next to the 101 hwy but quieter than I expected but then we were at the end of the row. Basically a parking lot but all utilities worked and it's 15 minute walk to the ferry. Our neighbour had to park close so they wouldn't hit the pedestal with their long rig. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

As others have said this one is all about location. Take away the location and we'd probably rate this a 5 (due to cramped nature of the park). Somewhat flat, short gravel sites with relatively wide asphalt access road. Gravel can be a bit loose causing problems with leveling (we had to use jack pads to get a stable enough base). Neighbors very close (pretty much no room for awnings) unless your rig is so large that they provide a 2nd adjacent space for your toad (or tow vehicle). Our 44' motor coach pretty much fills the site from the fence to the access road, but with the width of the access road we had no problems maneuvering in the park. Constant noise from highway 101. Having the Larkspur Ferry Terminal so close (15 minute walk) makes this park. So much better than our last visit when we either drove into the city or parked at the end of a BART line. The downside is minimal ferry service on weekends and holidays and the last ferry back during the week is 9:35pm. Power OK, water OK, sewer marginal (no threaded connection for standard hoses). The problems with the wifi have apparently been corrected - they booted Tengo and installed their own system. Still not enough for streaming, but we had no problems with email and web surfing the entire week. Recycling for all but paper and cardboard. This will be where we stay for future visits to San Francisco, but we'll probably stay further north for exploring the north bay area. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Buy a Clipper pass at the ferry terminal (you more than recover the costs on the first ferry ride due to Clipper fare discounts).

Location. Location. Location. If this park were anywhere else but the outrageously expensive Bay Area . . . But here it is the very best of the 4 we've used. The sites are perfect for Airstreams, which we saw a ton of. Today's bigger rigs with slides on both sides, would literally fill the entire width of the site. It appears that, whenever possible, bigger units are given 2 sites. This exemplifies what we saw of all the employees. They really go out of their way to make your stay the best experience possible. Information is provided to help guests take advantage of the nearby ferry that takes you within steps of the public transportation system in SF. Walking & biking trails abound with many shopping & eating options readily accessible using them. The provided Internet didn't work very well with my iPad. The best I ever got with the Verizon 4g was 3 bars, but no trees interfered with satellite TV reception. Not a place with room for kids unless the pool were open during the visit. We liked it so well we stayed for 15 days. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Use the ferry to access San Francisco.

This campground must be considered a city campground. It is convenient to travel into San Francisco but it is also quite compact. We traveled to the city by bus on one day and by ferry on the next. The staff are excellent in assisting with navigation of the public transportation into the city. The campsites are gravel, level and close together. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

A 15 minute walk will get you to the bus stop for a ride into San Francisco or to the dock for a ferry ride to the San Francisco waterfront. Good shopping in the mall or grocery stores is close to the campground.

Very nice staff! We have stayed here two times visiting SF and it is ideal. The park is not fancy but it is clean, level, and convenient. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

Also a $6 per day occupancy tax. This is probably the only RV park with relatively good access to San Francisco. About a half mile to the ferry and a similar distance to the bus. Ferry takes about 45 minutes and runs a limited weekend schedule. The park is also convenient to Point Reyes National Seashore (about one hour on a beautiful road). Very crowded park--big rigs with a slide out on both sides are provided two sites. All are back in. Unhook at check in. Staff were truly great--very nice and very informative--a real positive. Restrooms were clean but reminded me of those in military barracks. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this RV park because it was convenient to San Francisco, Muir Woods, and the Pt. Reyes National Seashore, and it was perfect. It was within walking distance to the ferry. The nightly rate is high for the park itself, but there are few options as convenient. They did give AAA and Good Sam discounts. The sites are very tight, but the driveway was wide enough to maneuver into the sites. The office staff was very helpful with directions and visitor information. They had a huge laundry room which was very clean. I would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

The sites are narrow and just gravel. The staff was friendly. The pet area was through a fence and was a weed/sticker patch with the railroad tracks going through it. This is a perfect place to catch the Ferry to explore San Fransisco. Ferries are walking distance. Bakeries and and restaurants are walking distance. We camped at Marin Park in a Travel Trailer.

Park just the other side of GG bridge in Marin area. Close to ferry terminal, buses, and TJs. Backs up to bird refuge with great trails to walk dogs. Staff is really helpful and accommodating. No, the sites are not really wide nor treed. They do not have lawns. We come for the city and the hiking, not to hang out in an RV park. The prices increased recently, but so did land values and property taxes. The economy is good here. So, if you like to hang out in cutesy parks, don't come here. If you want a convenient and safe to stay in SF, you will like it here. We camped at Marin Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is convenient to the ferry to San Francisco. Sites were level, but very close together. They were separated by a railroad tie. The staff was nice, but oh, so many rules. The showers were clean and worked well, but the shower area looked like what I think a prison shower area would look like. All in all, a just about decent place to stay, but certainly not worth the rate we paid. We would not choose to stay here again. We camped at Marin Park in a Travel Trailer.

I was concerned about this park until I arrived. It's clean and in a very unlikely location. It's close to everything ! The staff are new and extremely friendly. Spaces are all back in spots. I found them plenty big. The manager gave us two spaces (price of one)because we have five slides. We could have survived with one space, but truck parking would have been difficult! Stayed here Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day 2013. It's all about location. The dog area was great and I will come back. You can walk to Ferry and go straight into San Francisco. Any problems reported in past are changed. Feels safe, great staff, nice little park! We camped at Marin Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Clean park. Well run. Handy to shopping and public transit. Located right by the ferry to SF, so great for sight seeing. Our motor home is small, so we use the showers and these are nice and clean. WI-FI however, is almost useless. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

This is a park that gives you good access to San Francisco. You are a ten minute walk to the ferry system to San Francisco and there are bus stops close by. The park has cable TV with a few channels. The Wi-Fi is really bad but at least they tell you that up front. There is a small pool on site. The staff is great. They will help with information with sightseeing and transportation. Roads are paved and sites are completely gravel. Sites are not large. Make sure you have reservations as this park does not have a lot of spaces especially for big rigs. Also, follow the directions on their web site. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.
