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.

We really enjoyed our four days at this campground. Granted, the spaces are tight and there are no trees, but what can you expect this close to the city? I think this is the closest campground to the city that's acceptable. The sites vary a lot in length and width, but the management knows exactly what will fit into each campsite and assigns them accordingly. All the sites are gravel with a paved road in the middle. At the back of the campground are acres of wetland with walking paths where you can take your dogs. They have doggie bags and a pet waste trash can right at the opening to this which is convenient. The staff in the office has a wealth of information about what to do in the area, and most important, how to get there! We walked the 10 minutes to the ferry to the city, and it was a great way to travel: only $4.75 each way for a senior. Our son rode the bus from the city, and it dropped him off right at the campground. Our site was in the back and we heard no road noise, but I think you might hear some from the front sites. It's an easy drive to Sausalito or Tiburon. There's a great Trader Joe's within walking distance and a Safeway not far away. We tried to visit Muir Woods, but the roads and parking lots were packed with people and cars (on a weekday!) so we turned around and left. If you want to see redwoods, try the Samuel P Taylor State Park instead. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

The location next to the Larkspur Ferry to San Francisco is the main reason we stayed here. The RV park is good, however the spaces are close together and slides do reach the edge of the space. Toilets and showers are older but clean. It is a short drive to Sausalito and the Golden Gate Bridge. In a three or four day stay you can take the ferry to SF, enjoy the shops and restaurants of Sausalito, and get great pictures of the GG bridge. There is a nature trail at the back of the park that goes through the marshland and is good for bird viewing. You stay at this park for the location, so don't get upset about the tight spaces. We would definitely stay here again to show friends the area. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

Reviewing this park is difficult. If it were anywhere else, I would rate it a "2" due to VERY tight spots, freeway traffic noise, maneuvering issues, and overall lack of appeal. It looks more like a parking lot than an RV park. However, I wanted a park that was convenient to San Francisco, was safe, was near grocery stores and restaurants, and included easy freeway access and transportation options that wouldn't leave me spending my vacation in traffic. Based on my criteria, this park deserves a 10. The ferry terminal is an easy 20 minute walk. Grocery stores and restaurants can be reached in less than 10 minutes without getting on the freeway. It's an easy drive to the Golden Gate Bridge, to Marin Headlands, Rt. 1, and the Nike Missile site. We didn't use the park restrooms, but the pool looked clean, and the staff was very helpful with directions. Yes, we had to close our awning to allow the neighbor to park, we had to get used to the road noise (not extreme), and we had to figure out how to access the freeway, but it was all worth it for the convenience, and we would definitely stay again. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

The staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The location is an excellent choice to leave your rig while going into San Francisco. While in an industrial type area, it seemed adequately secure, but overly so. This park has no grass, no space and no charm. It is a parking lot of gravel sites and a paved street. However, we could walk to the commuter ferry and it was still a good choice to park and ride from. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.
