This is a asphalt lot and very close together but, we were there to visit San Francisco and a friend. I am finding out in California every campground is very limited on space. Coming from the East coast where there is space between sites. Everything has to stay between the painted lines of your site. We had to disconnect the tow dolly and side it up under the Motorhome so the car could fit in our lines of our site.

Great views of the ocean. Everything worked well. The staff was very friendly and the laundry area was great.

They do have long term residents there but they put them all on left side of the park and really don't know they are here. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We just finished staying here for a week and a half in a 40 ft RV and tow SUV. The staff here is awesome, they go out of their way to help and are happy to do so. This is the best RV Park close to downtown San Fran, with easy transportation to the city.

I would have given it a 10 except the Park is shrinking each year. The ocean has claimed many sites and each time we come here more an more are gone. Some of the sites are not long enough for a 40 ft RV and a tow SUV, so you have to park the SUV elsewhere in the park.

If you are thinking of staying here, do it, before the sea claims the entire park. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Motorhome.

All asphalt, $4 per day for Internet, pull-through, everything must be between the lines. After the slides were out, there was about 6 inches of clearance on the slide side and 1 inch on the step side. Low water pressure. The views and location to San Francisco are the sole reasons for staying here. From the cliffs, we could see whales breaching about 100 yards off shore. There are a few grass areas in the park and I do not recall any trees being there.

Simple to get in and out of San Francisco, expect traffic. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed in a 45 ft. motorhome. Clean restrooms and showers. Extremely tight. Slides cleared our neighbor by about 1 ft. Very expensive but convenient to San Fran. Heavy erosion has closed area near cliff. Free wifi at office and laundry ... otherwise $. Place is OK for 1 or 2 night stay. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Motorhome.

An excellent location in which to explore San Francisco. The park is on a cliff overlooking the ocean. There is a path to walk along the top with an area to get down to the beach about 1/2 a mile away. There were whales within sight daily. The spaces are close together - we kept the side shades down all the time and the park is/was full. They went out of their way to find us a spot and for that I rate their customer service very high. This was the most we paid for an RV park this summer, but the location made up for it. We were able to drive into San Francisco twice and over to Sausalito for lunch another day without hitting heavy traffic. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
