Beautiful location. Can hear the surf. Nice office people. Paved site, sunny/open, very close spacing, and included a picnic table. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Close to the city, lots to do. Can walk to the beach, the super market, the natural food store, etc.

Without question, if you are visiting San Francisco, this is the best RV park to consider. We stayed here for 3 months and in my opinion, the pros outnumber the cons significantly.

First the cons: All the sites are narrow and only a handful of them border grass medians which give a bit more space. Our 5th wheel with opposing slides, literally reached the lines on both sides of our space. For much of our stay, the window in our dining room slide was six inches from the trailer next door. We saw two cases of an RV hitting another RV trying to get in/out. Another con is the salt fog, which often rolls in here and corrodes anything it touches. All exposed iron or steel will rust in days. We used a rust protective spray constantly while here. Staying a few days, this wouldn't be a problem. The last con is the cost. It is horrendously expensive, but pretty much anything in the Bay Area is as well. Our rate was the monthly rate with a Thousand Trails discount (10%).

Now for the pros! The ocean is 200 feet away! While there isn't a beach right here, there is a great dog-friendly beach a 1/2 mile pleasant walk away and the ocean views are steps away from the sites. The little village which is a 5-minute walk away has everything--a great coffee shop, Safeway, a butcher shop, a deli, a barber, several restaurants, Walgreens, a pet store, and much more. The park is 25-minutes from any part of San Francisco (no, it's not 10 minutes as a prior reviewer said). There is much to do in Pacifica like hiking, live music, restaurants, many nice beaches, golf, surfing, biking and lots of parks. The park itself is very well-managed with good security and friendly, helpful staff. While the pull-through spaces are narrow, they are quite long and the roads are pretty wide and easy to navigate.

Overall, while this was one of the most expensive parks we have visited and it doesn't offer many amenities, the location and surrounding area more than make up for that. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Chit Chat Cafe nearby has great coffee and live music many nights.

It should be kept in mind that when you are coming to San Francisco, there are not many options for staying here in an RV that are safe. This is one of those options. We had a family reunion going on in the bay area, and we needed a place to stay with our RV and our two dogs, which though very well behaved, are considered an aggressive breed and in many places are banned. Our two American Staffordshire Terriers were welcome here because they are well behaved. This place is perfect. Though spots are tight, we were able to get our Allegro Bus in and slide out our slides. The views out into the ocean were amazing. There is plenty of areas to walk around and explore and you are just a short drive from the San Francisco area. We visited here from the Sacramento area and would definitely return here again! We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The closest RV park to San Francisco!

This is a tight parking lot, not a destination resort. Although right on the ocean, there is no beach to access. Our pull-in site faced the fenced off pool and hot tub area, and we were too close to our neighbors to pull out both of our living room slides. That said, it's a great place to park for a few days while you take in the sights of San Francisco. It's within walking distance of a grocery store, farmer's market, and access to public transportation. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Safeway, a farmer's market, the post office, a CVS, and several other small shops are within walking distance. Easy access to public transportation.

We have stayed here on several occasions back in the 2004 to 2006 before Thousand Trails /ELS took over the property. I wish we could turn back time. The rates have doubled, the park has gone down hill, and it was never that great. The only reason to go here is the ocean view and the easy transport into the City. That is worth the rates we used to pay, I do have a hard time letting go of $400.00 + when I am providing my own shelter and am sitting in a parking lot that I can't even open my awning and sit out to enjoy the view. The people are friendly, which is always makes for a much nicer stay. You can go down to the beach if you're a daredevil. I think it is actually closed for safety reasons. We basically slept there as we were in San Francisco until almost midnight the entire time we were there. The staff is great at explaining how to use the bus and train system which has a stop right outside their gate. 10 minutes later your in downtown San Francisco. 10 minutes--true statement. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There is nothing to do in the park, it is a destination travel location, its to give you a spot to keep your rig in so you can go into the City by the Bay.

Grocery Stores and a variety of restaurants, day spas, yoga studio, library, and the BEACHES are all within walking distance so the park doesn't need to do or have anything other than nice people. That they have covered.

As far as I'm concerned, if you're visiting San Francisco this is where you want to be. It's right on the ocean, you can't get much closer than that. It basically is just a big parking lot, but there's the OCEAN! It is reasonably convenient to the city and we just drove in from the campground each day. No issues. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

San Francisco, Alcatraz tour (must see), Fisherman's Wharf, ride the cable cars, drive Lombard Street, go to Muir Woods.

Best place we stayed in the San Francisco Bay Area. People who complain that slips are too close together are missing the point. The ocean is right there! Hike & bike are just feet away and you can walk or bike to grocery stores, restaurants and anything else you need. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You can bike about 4 miles of trail but don't miss the chance to hike the parts of the trail that aren't bike friendly. Spot whales in the ocean.

Stayed 2 days. It is really just a parking lot. I stayed in a pull-through (site 143). It was long enough for my 35 ft trailer and my crew-cab truck to fit lengthwise, but just barely wide enough to slide my slides out. I was literally 2 inches from the large concrete posts with my slides, and my steps on the other side were about 4 inches from the white line. We were really there just to visit San Francisco, and that is exactly what we did. I did not do anything except sleep and eat at the campground. I got exactly what I had prepared for after looking at this campground on the Internet before booking a reservation. I would stay here again if I wanted to see San Francisco, but we walked 6 miles in one day so I have had my fill. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We drove to the Colma BART station and rode into the city as per the recommendation from the campground staff. That was really good advice. It was really cheap to park there, and the ride was pretty quick both ways - a little confusing though. There is no beach nearby the park - only a fenced off cliff. You could make a short walk and then down some steps/cliff to get to the beach. It was cold in June and we did not try.

As others have mentioned, this RV Resort is literally a paved parking lot with lines painted to mark the spaces. The spaces are extremely tight! There are quite a lot of permanent-looking RVs in the park, some not in the best condition. Many are covered in rust and look like they haven't been moved in years. I wish I could say being right on the ocean was a plus, but it was completely foggy, windy, and cold all three days we stayed, and the wind off the ocean left our motorhome and car coated in salt spray (after just two days we could barely see through our car's windows). There is a decent-sized on-leash dog area at one end of the park. Near the dog area is an entrance to a walking path that leads out of the RV Park and into the nearby neighborhood. There's no beach access anywhere due to heavy erosion, but the walking path opens up some options for longer walks. It was a little difficult to come up with a rating for this RV Park. The reservation staff was helpful at locating a space for us where our ramp for our older dog would fit (some of the sites are so close together the ramp wouldn't fit). Just looking at the park itself we'd have rated it lower. However, we give it an extra point or two for being relatively close to downtown San Francisco, given that there are very limited options in this area. We stayed here specifically for the convenience of visiting San Francisco (about a 30 minute drive to downtown). In the future we'll likely try another nearby option, but would return here in a pinch if necessary. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We spent 4 months in the San Francisco RV Resort. Very nice campground. Though the spaces are quite narrow it is outweighed by the other amenities in the camp ground: nice office with sitting area, coffee etc., very friendly staff, nice club house, laundry, pool and spa, playground for the kids. The vicinity to San Francisco is a big plus, good base camp for trips to SF and the Peninsula. We enjoyed our stay at the SF RV Resort. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The sites in this park are very close together. Our 42'RV, with 3 slides, just fit. We did reserve several months in advance and were able to secure a site with a grass island on one side, which gave us more room. Great cable and free WiF. Small dog walk area. Many stores within walking distance, including a fantastic bakery. The main draw for this park is the location, it is right on the ocean. There is a walking trail along the ocean to the pier. Great location for visiting all the sites and sounds of San Francisco. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

There didn't seem to be many choices for parks in the SF area and this one has a location that makes it easy to visit the City (San Francisco). When the weather is good the location is absolutely gorgeous! More typically the area is socked in with fog or low clouds. The pull-through sites for big rigs are the tightest I've ever seen. Lines are painted on the pavement to identify the site boundary and my neighbors and I were in our sites with about one foot from the edge of our slides to our boundary lines! I had to turn sideways to get between my rig and my neighbor, I guess RVs didn't have slides when the park was laid out. It's really way too tight to spend that kind of money but what are you going to do? I think we will look for another place next time we visit SF, but we would probably return here if we couldn't find a more suitable park. We camped here in a 39' rig with slides on both sides. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Be careful where they put you. Your rig may barely fit if it fits at all. Other than that, this is the so-so. The ocean is reclaiming it's own. No more sites next to ocean with hookups. They lost several feet in the last storm. To be fair with the ratings, the campground has far too many campers for it's now downsized capacity. And it's going to get worse.

Overall, the facilities were a bit dated but clean and well maintained, and and the staff was attentive and courteous. We had an oceanfront space, which was nice from an aesthetic value (the ocean sound) but it reeked havoc on our coach, weather-wise. The whole park is paved. Our space was small, and we were crowded very close to our neighbors. Wifi was adequate, but dropped our connection often. The park is close (walkable) to a strip mall with a grocery, bakery, deli, and some restaurants, with convenient access. There is also a bike/walking path along the oceanfront that you can use to get to the shopping area. We stayed there for 3 weeks while visiting in the San Francisco area.

We have been coming to this parking lot for the last 7 years. It seems to be going down hill every time we come back, but it is the closest park to friends and family that live in Pacifica and Daly City, so I will keep on coming. This is not a resort, side by side parking with barely enough room to put out slides, one half of thee park is long term and rusting junk with flat tires in some cases engines being worked on ect. The office keeps bankers hours 9 to 5 no paper boxes sporadic wifi a staff that seems to have high turnover (new people every time we come back). Will keep coming back only while friends and family here. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Motorhome.
