14 RV Parks near South San Francisco, California
Jan 2013 - $55.00
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

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

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

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

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

This is a very popular campground in the SF Bay Area, so booking at the very moment the booking window opens is key! We were in a site without hook-ups, which was just fine for us for the weekend as you rarely need AC/heat on the coast and we don't mind bringing along a generator if need be. The campsites appeared to be well-maintained, but the bathrooms could have been cleaner and need a refreshing. There are lots of great attractions nearby, some within walking distance, and there is a great walking/bike trail that goes right by the campground. It can get EXTREMELY windy here so we appreciated that our site was oriented towards the ocean so that the wind wasn't broadsiding us. Definitely don't leave your awning unattended here. We will be back! - MissCampsALot

As others have said this is basically a parking lot with maybe 10 feet of dead grass between the paved spaces, right next to the beach parking for day use, right at the edge of the little drop off down to the beach. Most sites have electric, the back row does not, so you may hear a generator running, it wasn't too bad when I was there. The park does have wifi which like all campgrounds I have been in can be nearly unusable when too many try to use it at once, but I was able to get online. Good Verizon phone signal and very fast LTE data. Restrooms and showers were in good shape and clean. People love this park and it does fill up nearly every night. Was full early during the week in the middle of October when I was there, but I was able to get in without a reservation around mid-day. Note that in the tent sites you are not allowed to sleep in your vehicle. I stayed one night in the middle for $50 and a second night in the back with no electric which was $35. I was here because it is reasonably near the airport. - Wandering Dave

This campground has two great things going for it. It's right above the beach at Half Moon Bay and it's within a mile of the actual town of Half Moon Bay. Beyond that, there are only neutrals to negatives. Very few trees or shade, noise and bother from the day use area; lots of people with little understanding of campground behavior. We will stay here again, but as far from the day use end and the bathrooms as possible. - Bluestreak

We stayed here because none of the other parks had 3 consecutive nights available. Our first time in the area. Sites are large and level and gravel. No shade. Can get windy here so mind your awning! Pub-style restaurant adjacent to park. We didn't eat there. Half mile walk to beach. Lots of permanent or long-term residents but surprisingly quiet. Park is next door to a warehouse of some kind so we could hear their PA system. Spots farther away may not. Bathrooms/showers were individual units each with a toilet, shower, sink, hooks for clothes and towels and a small table. Really nice! Large laundry room that also housed bathroom/shower stalls. These were a bit smaller with no tables. Each site had a small plastic table with chairs and fire pit. Firewood is sold at the general store/registration for $10 a bushel. - Linda and Terry

DUST - fine powdery dust ends up everywhere in your RV. Site was very unloved (front tires were 4 inches off the ground ) horrible place. Sewer hook up is 30 feet from average RV outlet. - Unbiased
Aug 2016 - $85.00
WARNING: Do not stay here and spend your money elsewhere. The camp sites are gravel/woodchips and there is dust everywhere. The RV got very dirty quickly. We had panhandlers and homeless people from around town come to our spot demanding handouts. They also camp out in the bathrooms.The drunks that live in this park will scream at all hours of the night, throw up everywhere and will accost you as you take an evening walk. Beer bottles, broken glass, and dog poop is everywhere.There are scattered islands of shantytowns, broken cars and motorcycles that are constantly being worked on throughout the night. When they DO work they drive too fast and throw the rocks that make up their makeshift road all over your vehicles and RVs.It is nowhere near the actual beach.
Bed bugs are embedded in the laundry facility. Plan your trip accordingly outside and around this town. It's a tourist trap. - Outdoor explore

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

We love this park and it is even better now with new friendlier management. This is the fifth year in a row we have camped here. We are planning on a month again next year. You just can't beat the location. It is adjacent to a walkway leading down to the beach and the Ritz Carlton so beautiful walks are easy and stress-free.
To top it off, Half Moon Bay downtown is a few minutes away with great restaurants and niche shops. - Bay Area Early retirees

This park is right by the ocean. That is its biggest attribute. This is a lovely town and the park is nice although campsites are tight. This park requires that staff help guests with parking their rigs upon arrival. We viewed it as a positive. The driver for our fifth wheel loved the assistance with backing in. It went quickly and smoothly.
A good base to hit the beach or visit Santa Cruz for day trip. Laundry open 10 am to 8 pm. Tight spots. Hard to make room for neighbor's tow vehicle and picnic table.
Main negative: Staff doesn't communicate well with each other and blames the customer. Happened more than once. Upon arrival, the agreed-upon price over the phone was challenged and then accepted. They were "doing us a favor" because the person who took our reservation no longer works there.
In separate incident, we received a call to move our second vehicle to another spot, and did so within 15 minutes. The next day, we got a nasty note. Manager was pretty rude and didn't know about previous employee's instructions. She also said she'd heard about us parking in the wrong place on a prior day, from some longtime guests who text her directly. No one on staff mentioned parking until the day before--and we jumped right on it. But, we are not mind readers. I felt the interaction was unprofessional from start to finish.
There are so few RV parks in the area that I would still recommend staying here if it fits into your plans. But you may need to have a thick skin with this staff. Be sure to write down specific instructions you receive and also the staff member's name. Maybe take their picture too. Good luck and happy travels. - GetOutdoors

The most notable positive about this campground is that it is within walking distance to the ocean and beach access. Also beautiful views of the golf course and ocean in the distance. Staffers were friendly. There are a number of live-in residents. The old lady across from us kept giving us the stink-eye. Site was very cramped, felt like we were on top of our neighbors on both sides. Odd sewer connection does not lock into place so be careful when dumping. Overall, seemed overpriced for what you get at the campground; however, the location is great. Also not many other choices in Half Moon Bay. - Urbanthesis

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
