The perfect place to stay to take the ferry in to San Francisco. 0.6 mile walk from the campground to the ferry. The ferry is then 30-50 minutes (depending on ferry) to Port of San Francisco. Then get a muni pass to cable/trolley car all over town. The lady at the RV park front desk (from Kentucky) is one of the friendliest people ever. They are all very helpful about the "how to" aspect for tourists. The showers are OK. The pool is fine. Lots of different cultures and languages here. I love that for the kids. Each night in the pool there were from 2 to 4 different languages being spoken. Vibe was very friendly. Another reviewer said they dog area had fox tails (dog danger). So we didn't use the dog area behind. You can take them out front on the street though. A nice little wetland/walk area in back by dog area is worth an evening stroll. Also runners: go left out of RV park (away from bridge) and head to Tiburon. There is a perfect running path there (towards mall). There is a water fountain and lots of doggie bags along the way. I did a nice four mile (out 2 and back 2) that was quiet and dog friendly. Get reservations early if you can. We got super lucky and got them day of going into the weekend. Super risky but it worked out. We got the last spot for that weekend. A must stay for seeing San Fran. We spent three nights which was perfect for seeing San Fran. Good to note: it takes FOREVER to get anywhere there in your car so build in about triple the time it would take you in the Midwest. We camped at Marin Park in a Travel Trailer.

I stayed here one night and it was conveniently located to a book event I was attending. There's shopping nearby. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend staying here while visiting San Francisco. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

Location (close proximity to Larkspur Ferry and San Francisco), flat site, and better-than-average WiFi for a campground are the only positives for this RV park. On the negative side, it was pricey ($85) per night. Sites were tight/close together, all back-in. Showers and restrooms were moldy and filthy, plus you have to walk down a narrow, poorly lit tunnel to get to them and then the step up to the facilities is a huge step up, bigger than the biggest Motorhome step. More than half the sites were occupied by locals with multiple cars who blocked your ability to park your tow without sticking out in the street. Laundry locked at 8pm. Stayed only because of location. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

We called to book a 4 night stay, and were given a confirmation number. When we were arrived, we were told that we had no reservation, and they were full. The reservation number showed in their system as an overbook, with no name associated.

As for the park itself, the location is the only selling point. The spaces are very tightly spaced. It does appear to be clean, but there is little aesthetically appealing and the location, while close to San Francisco and the Larkspur ferry, isn't otherwise particularly desirable. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

My rating is judging this park for what it is: a campground with great access to San Francisco. It is, as others have said, a parking lot with red-painted railroad ties to separate sites. The sites are level, are on rocks so you're not tracking in dust and dirt and the hook-ups are easy. The bathrooms are cleaned every day, the staff is fun and full of knowledge about the area. It is extremely close to shopping and within walking distance to Trader Joes. But, the best part is that it is within a 15-minute walk to the ferry to San Francisco and within a 15-minute drive over the bridge if you want to take your car to the city. We like to hike and it is close to a plethora of hiking locations, in China Camp SP, or in Marin Headlands or in Point Reyes National Seashore. If you like lighthouses, there are two within a 40-minute drive. There is a wetlands trail right outside the park which can be a short or a long walk, depending upon which route you take. There are bike trails all over the area for walking also.
We liked this park for what it was - location, location, location and we'd definitely come back. Our cost was for a month and we were given an extra site for our Jeep. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Charles Schultz Museum is in Santa Rosa and the Jack London State Historic Park is within 45 minutes. Both are absolutely excellent and we spent a day at each. We visited the lighthouses at Point Reyes and in the Marin Headlands. The Bay Model in Sausalito is an interesting place to visit. And, the sights in San Francisco are too numerous to mention. We had a good breakfast in Boudins in the mall.

Much has been said, mostly true. We have been coming here for 10 + years. Started at f$40 a night. Now close to $100. As a park, not worth it, as a location, it is as close to San Fran as you can get. Park is all gravel, a bit tight. They use to give us two spots, with 4 slides. This time, they did not. Said they gave us a wider space so did not need to meet the fire code. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

SF ferry close. 30 minutes to Tomales Bay, Point Reyes and fresh Oysters and cheese. Marin Mall very close, also lots of great resturants that also have same in the city. So you don't need to go to the city. Saulcelito 15 minutes away.

This RV park is located just off 101 and has convenient access to the Larkspurs ferry into San Francisco, which is the best reason to stay here. The sites are quite tight, it is basically a parking lot with gravel pads and no trees. We were fortunate enough to get two sites, one for our 5th wheel and one for our truck and we were grateful for the extra space. The sites are marked off with railroad ties and can be difficult to get into, but don't let that discourage you.

Upon checking in we received a lot of information about the area and getting into SF. The front desk was very helpful with our questions. The walk to the ferry is about 15 minutes, they give you a ferry schedule upon arrival, use it! The park has full hookups, so I didn't use the restrooms or showers, but my husband used then men's showers. You have to leave a $10 deposit for the card to use the shower, which you get back when you return the card. My husband said that two of the four showers were not operational. There are also showers and restrooms available at the pool area, I didn't visit those so I don't know what shape they were in. The park has a large laundry facility that is clean and fairly convenient. There are many washers and dryers and sizes range from large to extra large to really extra large. Prices vary, depending on hot or cold water and the size of the washer/dryer. There is a large table in the center for folding laundry.

The pool was open while we were there and our granddaughter used it once. It's small and can get quite crowded. I wouldn't call this a campground, it's really a parking area for visiting the area. There is little to no space to entertain outside, we didn't spend anytime outside at our site, even with the extra space.

I'm not in love with the park, but the location made it a good choice. We camped at Marin Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

Location Location Location.....Very office staff that marked on a map sites we should see..... While in the office, they got a phone call from "owner" who told them to raise the rates immediatly to $ 100 per night. Ours was excluded as we had made a reservation.

Rate was $430 per week. New rate is about $660 which in my mind too high. The staff is VERY friendly and have done great job prepping LOTS of info for you about the area. The park is basically a gravel parking lot but its all about the location. WIFI works fine. We actually got 2 sites to fit our 40' motorhome. If not for the new rate hike we would come back.... We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
