To start, for the last two hours we have been trying to get the WiFi to work. So, there's that.
Next, it is just a parking lot. Which, I wouldn't mind if it wasn't costing me $96.00 to sleep behind where they have torn down the football field and are now doing work to build something else. Don't even get me started on road noise.
It costs so much, we are basically paying to sleep here. I won't have enough to spare for a bus, cab, lyft, you name it. Unfortunately it is labor day weekend and we had to stop and this was it. So no San Francisco sight seeing for us.
If you can, avoid this park. It is not, in any way, worth over $30. Maybe they will realize this one day. - WanderPig34

This park is very close to downtown. We stayed 5 days and found it to be OK. Noise in the morning is very loud from construction on the old Candlestick Park. The park is in a rundown part of town and the approaching street is not great. Good laundry facilities although expensive. Showers are old and mouldy. There is a separate TV room with table tennis, tv and PC with printer for guests use. There is also a basic shop in the office that offers VERY basic needs. There is a shuttle bus to downtown that works out to be very expensive if used everyday. We used Uber, which was a lot cheaper.Security guards posted at gate at night was both reassuring but also worrying. I don't think we would stay here again, probably try another San Fran park. This park is expensive for what it is. - Liane63

The restrooms/showers are very clean. Convenient location with transit connections, bus to Chinatown, or rent a cab. You will not find others RV park in San Francisco. - motorcity

Manager made me feel like I was putting him out. Old park with mostly perment residents. The restrooms and showers were very nice. Must be fairly new. The price is very high for what you get and what the park looks like. We would NOT stay here again. - JoyceG

Great location to visit San Francisco. The park is very basic is/was a mobile home park. The location compensates for difficulty in registering (office is often closed), and the crowded, concrete based environment. Overall, because of location very good experience and will come again when visiting SF. - Ray Wiley

We stayed here while in San Francisco and wouldn't stay here again. The park is mainly full timers in mobile homes. There was nothing to do and no Wi Fi. - melody105

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. - Rich the Diver

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. - JCat

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. - virginiagirl2015

Location was OK with access to shops and the ferry terminal. There's no spare space capacity, but the place would benefit from some additional facilities such as things for kids. The hosts were quite informative. - JAMESOPH

This park is all about location. Easy access to wide variety of shopping and simple access to the Larkspur Ferry Terminal offering travel to the entire San Francisco Bay Area. A visit here is not about the beauty of the park, it's about visiting the San Francisco area. Some long-term residents offered no ill affects: park is quiet and to the point. Excellent and stable Wi-Fi. Hosts very helpful and informative. - CasaRoll

It would be generous to call this place anything but a dump. The only redeeming features were the LOCATION (within walking/biking distance of Larkspur Ferry to San Francisco. Excellent Wi-Fi (Through Tengo) and full hook-up where everything worked and worked well. This is not a Campground as such. It is a Parking Lot for RVs & Campers. At $40/night PLUS TAXES it is a very expensive Parking Lot. Some serious effort needs to happen before I would rate this place above a one. Desperate people do desperate things. Like Stay Here. - Saskanna

This park is just what we needed and nothing more. We needed a place to park the trailer while we went to see the sights. There are no fire rings, picnic tables, etc. The staff greeted us before we got out of the truck and directed us to the parking area. We then returned to finish checking in at our convenience. This prevents congestion at the entrance. I hope other parks catch on to this. The staff volunteered information I would not have thought to ask about. The ferry is close enough to walk to for most people and easy to drive to for others. Parking at the ferry is free on weekends and holidays and only $2 during the week. Ferry fee is $11 to SF and half price for 65 and older. - Watalotahui

Probably closest RV "park" to San Francisco. North of Sausalito, about 10 miles north of Golden Gate Bridge. Urban gravel RV "park" - nothing park like about it, but sufficient. Next to US 101 and exit ramp, so continual loud traffic noise 24/7. No trees, no bushes, no grass - just gravel and asphalt. Urban air pollution. Narrow sites, gravel = not very level. BUT pool is OK, all the requirements are here - power is OK, water OK, dumps are at back of site but OK, room for larger units. Staff are very friendly and nice. Price median for high-demand California location. And location is pretty convenient to San Francisco. - Big Sur Ridgewalker

Friendly staff that helped us 20 minutes long with explaining the possibilities to visit San Francisco, and things to know in the neighborhood. Small swimming pool, Wifi could be a little stronger. Shops in the environment and also possibility to refill propane. Ferryboat to S.F. only 10 minutes walking away. - Peters 2016

This is an odd little park that's more of an experiment by San Mateo County Parks & Recreation. There are four (4) sites marked off along the edge of a parking lot with a 20 amp pedestal and a water spigot. The dump station is at the Sheriff's Shooting Range about 1/2 mile away and it could be a hassle to get in close when they're training.
First, the positives. It's right on the bay as in, if you fall out of bed, you might drown! It's very well patrolled and transients are gone by 8 PM. There are 3 "pull-in" sites but it would be sketchy if the other sites are occupied. The 4th site is a "back-in." The shower & bathroom facilities are shared with other park users such as wind surfers, kayakers, and paddle boarders. They are closed and locked by about 7 PM and don't open again until 7 AM.
There are some negatives for such picturesque "campsites." The spaces are all roughly east-west orientation with the utilities on the south side. However, most people tend to pull in facing east which puts the water and electric cord on the side of the RV away from the pedestals, which, since there aren't any signs, one can park whichever way one desires but it creates some interesting issues.
There are "rules" posted at each site but they're more like guidelines. All in all, one should chill and adopt a laissez-faire attitude while staying at Coyote Point. After all, this is San Francisco.
SFO is right across the bay but the jet noise wasn't noticeable due to the prevailing off shore winds. Speaking of winds, in July, it was "rockin' & rollin'" the motorhome in the afternoons and evenings. - LM&TinView

Extremely friendly staff. We were parked next door to the owners home. There are a lot of full timers and some of the units not to pretty. Having said that we never felt unsafe. This park is an oasis in the middle of a suburban neighborhood. Lots of pets around, but no green grass for their use. Our old dog did not have any trouble with using the blacktop but the younger dog would not use it. We had to go off grounds for her. It is a convenient place to park if you are going to visit San Francisco. The transit station is close by if you are smart enough to understand how to use it. I believe the way to visit San Francisco is to fly in, rent a hotel and transportation and leave the RV at home. If we were in the area again and needed to stay a night or two in the area, we would stay here again. - cubadoug

This is not a "resort" type facility by any standard, but OK for a few nights visiting family in the area. The "daily" sites are toward the front, with the rest being long term residents. That being said, it was a quiet spot in an urban environment. There aren't many choices in the Bay Area, and this was fine for a few days. This place has been around for 75 years! Very helpful staff. - ronboett

We stayed here for 3 nites to visit San Francisco. We would definitely do it again. The location is fabulous, as it's close to BART and the town has restaurants, grocery store and easy access to freeway. Their directions to the park are good, but address is hard to find online. It's 2399 E 14th St San Leandro, CA. We were concerned about how easy it would be to get into the spot with our 40 ft RV, but they gave us a large, level back in spot with plenty of room for the car and our 4 slides. Plenty of street width to back in easily. We did unhook our tow on the street, but could have unhooked in the park. Office person was very helpful & had someone go to the space before us to be sure it was okay. Tenants in park were friendly. My only issue was having to walk the dog on the street outside the park but then this is an in town RV park, so it was expected. We would definitely come back again, as it was the perfect spot to park to sightsee San Francisco and the price was one of the least expensive parks in all of California. - Danni

I stayed at this mobile home park with my 36' motorhome in 2009 for about 6 months. It is clean and well cared for, management on site are very nice people. However, the owners are very stiff in any dealings and do not bend under any circumstances. They will allow 1(one) pet: cat or dog under 30 pounds. If you have 2 cats or dogs and they don't even add up to 30 pounds together, even they are not allowed. People have had to get rid of their pets if they live here. They have rules for every little thing. They are big sticklers about even the smallest thing. If you are human and could very possibly make an error, I would not suggest you come to this park. Even on a per night basis, if you have more than one pet you are not allowed. It is an $18 charge for your credit check, they have an application that asks questions that are, quite frankly none of their business. Motorhomes are to be started at least once a week and even starting them monthly or longer for your required 10-20 minute period is not allowed. If the electricity fails and it is winter time: Do NOT start your generator. It doesn't matter that it's cold and you have no heat. They came over at 10pm and said I had to turn it off. What??? One is not allowed heat? Not a place to stay if you are a person that some how has faults or actually plans to live life! - justme2

This mobile home park was a disgrace. The owner did not allow very many things and the rent itself is over priced. The owner overcharges her patrons and refuses to let the owners sell their mobile homes. She changes the rules about every six months and a lot of the rules don't even make sense. I would also like to point out that the rules themselves are unfair. We will not be staying there again. I would not recommend this park to anyone unless they are very rich and very patient. - Rayvn

Stayed in a site with FHU. Very narrow road inside park and site pad was narrow and short. Our site was on the side of the hill so everything off the pad was uneven but this is expected in a regional park. The park itself is gorgeous and you truly get the feel of being in the middle of nowhere. Sites were spaced far enough apart that we didn't hear our neighbors on either side. The road in is an older, narrow, winding road which was an adventure pulling our trailer up and down. We would definitely stay here on a visit to the Bay Area. - WoodShed22

This campground is only 30 minutes from central Oakland. We were in site 12, which fit my 25' trailer just fine. My tow vehicle had to park perpendicular. Some of the RV/utility sites are close, and others are widely spaced. Ours was the latter - perhaps the best of the 12 utility sites in my opinion. The access roads are narrow and a bit twisty. Only the first 6 sites would probably work for a rig in the 30+ range. There are no facilities/playgrounds for children, but we did some hiking and spent the rest of our free time in Oakland or SF. There are a couple pig green grassy areas that are good for a ball game. The campground is very quiet. We saw turkeys, deer and raccoons. If you have a long haired dog, like I do - keep them out of the dry summer grasses. There are so many burrs and sticky seeds, it will be a disaster for your dog. Short hair dogs are probably fine. I checked, and there were lots of TV channels available for a broadcast antenna, but so many eucalyptus trees that a satellite dish might have problems. They were allowing campfires, so we indulged ourselves every night. I would happily stay here again. - SeaTeacher

This park is about 20 miles from home for me so it was a great quick getaway. Some sites are pretty close to each other but on the edge of the loops you'll find lots of open space outside your door. The gun range is close, but was only background noise for us, and stops at 5:00pm so we were never bothered by it. You'll find a ton of hiking and biking trails, plus some pretty good fishing here.
Redwood Road is windy, and doesn't have much of a shoulder, but you'll find pullouts fairly often. Also, watch out for the cyclists, they're on the road any time of the day, every day of the week. In California you much give cyclists a 3 ft clearance when passing. - MadAdventures

No showers, a lot of noise because of the road next to the campground. Narrow sites.
On the positive side: whales!! - Barbary

Friendly, accommodating manager in a beautiful location. Spaces are close as in most beachfront parks but what a view! Beach with surfers to your right, harbor to your left and a nice walk/ bike path running right in front of the beachfront sites. Loved it! - Beth p
Aug 2015 - $70.00
As others state the view is awesome! (We had a full ocean view site.) Water, beach, surf boarders, harbor, boats, birds all part of your view. Sites close, tight turns, but our 38er fit just fine even though we didn't think we'd make it at first. Enough space once set. Good power and hookups, but couldn't get a good wifi connection. Nice mellow beach area, we didn't fish, but lots of others were along the jetties. The flowers and landscaping are very pretty. No amentities at park, but food, music, drinks, supplies within 1 to 2 miles. As no reservations, we just took a chance and headed there on a Sunday and got lucky, do be prepared to be patient as you may have to wait as others get in or out of their spots. No problem, just be aware. Camp host very nice and helpful. We will go back, best view we've had at an RV park. - Duran
