18 RV Parks near San Francisco, California

On the up side, it's very close (a few miles) and about 30 minutes into SF. On the down side, sites are too close together (closer than any we have had in Key West), not long enough for a "big rig", all blacktop (no grass or shade). The place is right next to a construction site, right next to an abandoned park and right next to the defunct ball field. The price is outrageous for a place to park and sleep. And people live here. - NJPB

It is a blacktop park. No grass or trees and the spaces are very tight. You have all you can do to squeeze between two other campers. There is not enough room for slide outs. No tables or fire pits. When it rains the lots flooded. Very expensive for what you get. No cable but wifi when you could get it in. - PWMW

At this SF RV Park you are fifteen minutes from downtown SF. The price is high, the road to park is bumpy, the wifi, the utilities are good, the view is not terrific, the spaces are paved and tight, but if we wanted to be close to high traffic SF, this park would rate a five out of five. Location, Location, Location and will return! Definitely big rig friendly! - RJourney

Absolutely the worse RV park we have ever stayed at. The "manager" went out of his way to be rude, the park was filthy e.g. Garbage dumpsters were overflowing, roads covered with standing water after rain, lots of police action and drug dealing, - Fm 2030

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

Pricy for what you get, but being close to San Francisco and to the ocean cost a lot. Our site was Ok but we were crowded by big rigs on both sides.
Going to San Francisco in our toad took a long time, as traffic was horrible every time we went. The weather was sunny but the wind was howling.
Interestedly we stayed at that campground in 2007 and we were able to park right on the cliff's edge with a fantastic unobstructed view of the Pacific ocean. This year, all these spots are gone, the ocean has eroded the cliffs so much that most of them are gone...sad.
We will not go back to this campground. - Two Dogs and an RV

At first sight, this looks like little more than a parking lot, with units packed tightly together. But this is San Francisco. Homes are packed just as tightly. This is not camping here, rather it is a place to comfortably stay in your RV, and either relax or enjoy the area. We were assigned a spot in the very front row, overlooking the ocean. There has been bluff erosion in the past, and fences are in place to prevent the stupid from falling over the edge. But the view is tremendous, with Drakes Bay visible go the North and Devil's Slide to the South. With the Farralones in the distance, one can watch the endless procession of ships as they enter and depart The Golden Gate. The park is clean, with adequate trash receptacles, doggie bag stations, laundry, nice restrooms, and a friendly staff. They have a nicely stocked camp store with many of those RV repair parts that only fail on the road. There is an incredible bakery nearby, fuel, hardware store, supermarket, butcher, and post office. Water, power, and waste utilities all worked as they should. Wi-fi isn't free, unless you are doing laundry. They have cable tv with HBO, and broadcast HDTV reception is good here. AT&T cell service was about 4 bars. Picnic tables are at some corner sites, and scattered throughout the park. - Kvw613

We stayed January 2017 to April 2017 for my work. It is right on the Pacific ocean. Beautiful views. Close walking distance to good food, post office, pharmacy and grocery store. Easy public transportation access into San Francisco. Park was clean and well maintained. Spots are narrow and long, not much room to sit outside your unit. Park is all asphalt. Constant water and sand all over everything since right on the water. Downside to staying for 3 months was the rust on things. Our bikes are currently at the shop getting a big over-haul due to the rust issues (yes they where covered). We would stay again, just not three months. - LaneyC RN

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.

In spite of paying $85 per night (including ridiculous California taxes), we really liked this park. The office staff was so helpful in getting us orientated for our first exploration of Frisco. Our site was level, cable TV was good, and WI-FI was very good. Even though we had a narrow back-in site, they let us use the whole site next to us to park our towed---kind of like two sites for the price of one. One nice change was we didn't have to worry about damaging our coach from low electric voltage. We had a steady 122 volts during our entire stay. As with every California campground we have stayed in, finding grassy areas in which to walk dogs is a challenge. At the back of the park, there is some sort of bird sanctuary where dogs can be walked. Sadly, most people seem to feel that since this area is hidden by a fence, it's OK to just let your dog sit. This is nothing by laziness and a complete lack of consideration for others. Shame on all of you. Also, after walking your dogs, check them for burrs as they seem to pick up a lot of them in the ultra-dry grass. We would definitely come back here again, if only to enjoy that beautiful morning fog ! - dhaney1944

A typical tourist park with vans close together. Very clean. Staff meet you as you arrived and sent you to your prebooked site. Gravel with no dirt and very level sites. - Aussie Chums
Jun 2017 - $68.00
I picked this park because it was close to the ferry into San Francisco. It is nice gravel parking lot. The people are friendly and helpful and keep the place very clean. The sites are small but the hook ups are easy. Lots of cable channels and the WiFi and Cell service is very good. I would stay here again if coming to San Francisco - Bud in Florida

Previous review I found accurate and helpful. I stayed here one night in late October and can add a few observations. The closing time of the park varies with the season, when I was there it was 5:00. The restrooms with the showers were locked at 4PM when I checked them out. I flagged down one of the workers who agreed to unlock them for me, but they said they would like to lock them by 5PM as they were leaving then. They told me they expected the RV's to be self contained and did not expect them to be using the restrooms. Showers worked good and were hot, but they are in a building with walls but no roof, so are basically outdoors as far as air temperature. Plane noise was plenty loud when I was there, but it didn't bother me, especially as I was there because of the closeness to the airport. Also you will have some distant highway and train noise but not too bad. There are not really typical campground spaces here, just at the back edge of an asphalt parking lot there are numbered picnic tables and utilities. The old lines for regular parking are still there, with no marking borders between 'campsites'. I think you will want to be here for the location, and with that will come noise and people. While the main gate on the road is closed in the evening the public can and does walk into the park after it is officially closed. All the staff in the park were very friendly and helpful and I would stay here again if I needed to be in the area. My cost was $45 plus a $7 reservation fee. - Wandering Dave

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. - LMandTinView

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

Sandev Mobile Park in San Leandro on the east side of the San Francisco bay is quite nice. It is mostly mobile homes but has some RV spots. All spots are clean, wide and well maintained. All sites are back in. They have wireless in the office area, and some sites can pick it up inside the RV. The place is remarkably quiet except for the occasional train, which run mostly in the daytime. IMO, it is much better than constant freeway noise. The place is cash only, $40 a night or $220 a week. I think it is a good deal if you want to go to places on the east side of the bay. The BART station is a couple miles away, and the Ferry from Alameda to SF is a nice ride. - Daveyjo

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

Clean restroom but could use a little updating. Courteous host. No showers or laundry facilities but great view and good price. San Francisco prices (25 ml away) were a lot more. Close to restaurants and directly on beach. All hookups available and close to highway so easy access. - Susan D98

If you are coming here expecting anything other than a fantastic view, you will be very disappointed. This is basically a parking lot with. No other services available in the park. They say they have cable and Wi-Fi. The cable shuts down several times a day and you have to restart it. The Wi-Fi is hard to use. The town of half-moon bay is very satisfactory. The only laundry facilities are in half-moon bay and they are only available Monday through Friday from 8 to 5. - Sarshs1mom

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