Good friendly service for a big city campground. Most units appeared to be long-term people working in the area. Hwy noise is prominent. Site not level despite asphalt pad. Two foot grass patch between sites. Laundry on site. Wifi slow, cable Is mostly SD channels and grainy. - Sasquatchewan

Fine for an overnight stay, especially if you do not need to use their restrooms. Park is okay and lady at desk was very nice/helpful & they provide good information.
Park is hard to find - you need to do a hairpin turn immediately after leaving freeway and go back under the over bridge on a frontage road.
Lot of permanents and is right beside freeway but noise was bearable. Restrooms are in need of cleaning and refurbishment. - Kiwigirl

Staff was very friendly this place is more of an overnight or long time residence. Not nice neighborhood. Best thing I can say is we barely fit and the staff were great. Warning signs all over about break ins and theft. Bathrooms were clean. - MW91301

We stayed in a 37 ft motorhome and it was tight getting to our site. Once in site we could open both slides and still have some room. Park is run down but the manager couple are working on upgrades. 50 amp power was issue, had low voltage on one leg but we got by. Water, you need a regulator as I was told by the manager, did have sewer. No wifi or cable. We used for base since we were here to visit San Francisco and the rate was ok. Several residents with old campers, they were living in. We would not stay again. No picnic tables. - belanga

1. Agree with two reviews preceeding mine. The place is ok for a 1-nighter but we didn't sleep well. Probably over reacting but sometimes you just gotta trust your gut. 2. The maintenance guy, Bart, and neighbor Debbie were super friendly. We arrived late and both came out to help us right away and make sure we settled in fine and told us where we could park our tow rigs. 3. We were told to lock our doors and that sometimes cars just drive through the place. 4. Super close to six flags, which is why we stayed here. 5. Stayed one night and are moving to Marin RV Park. - fandrica

First the good things about this park: location, location, location. The park is in Valejo, within a 15 minute drive to the ferry where there is free parking and a ferry with a one hour ride to San Francisco. The price we paid reflects the weekly rate, and seemed quite reasonable for RV parks in the San Francisco area. The operators of this park are very helpful. Now for the negative. This is an older park, not particularly attractive, mostly occupied by permanent residents who live in older rigs. The hookups all work, but they are old and antiquated. For example the electrical hookup was on a post about 6 feet off the ground. There are a couple of newer sites, but they were really too short for our 40 foot RV, so we chose a site next to the permanent or semi-permanent residents. We stayed here for 2 weeks, and given its reasonable price and great location, we would stay here again. - hoppytoad

The park itself is huge, but a tiny campground. Some full time residents. One was a newer one with a temp tag from 2015 still on it. The sites are very close together. Site was fairly level, gravel roads and site. We did have a picnic table. The full hookup sites are first come first served. Otherwise you just get water and electric. It is nice and quiet, but there is nothing stopping the day use park visitors from entering the campground. - Vicki K

Sites and roads are gravel. The weeds around the sites are 2' to 3' tall. They advertise that they have WiFi, and even give you the ID and passwords. But it doesn't work in the park. It only works standing by the entrance gate. No cable, but a decent antenna signal. There is a garden a short walk from the RV park that has interesting plants, flowers and trees. That's worth a visit. The RV park....not so much. - ta96silver

This was our fourth stay at Skyline, and accept for 12 straight days of continuous rain, it was great. It is rustic, and in a beautiful park location. Good hiking, although dogs are not allowed on the trails. It has a world class disc golf course, and they was a national tournament (in the rain) while we were here. There is a great dog park and the staff is very cooperative. One of our favorite parks anywhere. Lot spacing is spacious with some shade. Site surface is gravel and features a picnic table. - Dynotrekker

A very nice park with super location for touring the Napa Valley. It is on the fair ground property but feels nicely removed from it yet convenient walking into Napa proper. The sites are all paved, level and generous in size. We had booked just two nights and would have loved more but they were full. The camp host is great. He has been there for 11 years and works like crazy to keep the park spotless and safe which we truly appreciate. There are rules to follow and they would be enforced but that is what most Rvers appreciate. Thank you! We loved being able to walk into town. Great restaurants of course. Gotts drive-in worth a lunch and the Ox-bow market next door is great, and all just a few minutes walk from the park. Touring the valley from here super easy. Don't miss going North on the Silverado Trail, a much easier drive especially with your rig than 28. We will be back to this park for an extended stay! - Ryno

This is a small park (28 spaces), but it really worked well for us. Our space was long - we could easily park behind our rig with plenty of pavement to spare. Grass surrounds all of the sites, and the camp hosts were busy busy busy keeping it all mowed and trimmed and everything tidy. WiFi worked well, but there is no cable and we really had a hard time bringing in local TV stations over our digital antenna (thankfully, RedBox is close by). There is shopping and restaurants south and north, and "wine country" is just out your door and up the road a little ways.
Also, about every two spaces, you have your own garbage and recycle can in a little enclosure right in front of the rigs. Very handy!
Our one little nit-pick is coming and going into and out of the park. We just about drove past the place, as the sign is very small. Also, there is one of those triangle-things where the access road meets the main road, making you make only right turns when leaving the park (we cheated a few times, but it really is a bad corner as traffic comes zooming around from the north). That triangle kind of gets in the way as you first enter the park, so give yourself plenty of room if coming from the south to swing around and make the turn (we have a 36' motorhome pulling a Honda CR/V).
If we're ever in the area again, staying here would be an absolute no-brainer! - coffeetime

For Napa we were very happy to get a spot at this Park. Nice grassy spots outside your concrete pad with tables. If you go out back expo gates you are two blocks from downtown. Directions to Park - it is important to follow the RV park directions so you go in a gate that is open. Small park so reserve early as popular. - Scooterd16

What a great place to stay! Right in the middle of town & close to all wineries! Full hook-ups, gravel sites with concrete pads. Great grassy areas for your pups! Close to river access with a nice paved path for walking or jogging. The lodge couldn't have friendlier or warm! Wednesday nights they serve dinner...had a great RibEye dinner for $22.00. Would definitely stay here again & looking forward to returning! - crimpys

This is a very nice, small, private (Elk members only) campground incredibly near downtown Napa, California with lots of convenient shopping nearby (e.g., Safeway, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, etc...) The location provides an excellent jumping off place to explore all of Napa Valley and at $25 a night for a full hookup campsite the price cannot be beat. The sites are small but typical for a private campground and very level. The area is very clean and quiet. The Napa River Trail (7 mile walk/bike/run) runs right along the rear of the campground and can be accessed via a locked gate. This is the best value we've seen yet in California and to have it in the heart of wine country makes this a real gem. They do not take reservations and when we arrived on a Monday in early November, there were only three other RV's so we could choose from nine other sites. If you get here and the place is full, they will let you spend the night in the parking lot so you can make other arrangements or wait for a vacancy. As a back-up, check out the Calistoga RV park (it's a county fair park about 28 miles up the road.) - User3589

This Elks lodge campground is available only to Elk members. There are 12 sites located behind the lodge. Four sites have 50 amp and the others have 30 amp. Full hookups. Nicely landscaped sites but close together and fairly unloved. Only a few sites can accommodate rigs over 40 feet. First-come, first-serve with no reservations. Full on most weekends but midweek it is easier to get a site. There is a 14 day limit which is strictly enforced. Great place to stay while touring Napa. - lmg

This is mostly a mobile home park. There are sites for RVs and some have been there a very long time. The park is poorly maintained. The limited staff is friendly. It has very limited laundry. There is some train noise in the park. Likely would not stay there again. Parking a 40' MH was very difficult and I had to trim some trees to get in. - Workamper04

We picked this park for its high Good Sam rating and its proximity to the San Francisco ferry, Muir Woods, and Sonoma & Napa Valleys. Both criteria were wrong. We paid $81/night, and an acceptable price should be no more than $30-$35. All sites are exceedingly narrow backin spots where your front door is one foot from the neighbor's sewer drain. The staff pleasantly took our money. An attendant who was supposed to help us back in was of almost no help. It was level is about the only positive. The bathroom/showers were barely acceptable for a kid's summer camp and had little privacy. We did not use them. Camp WIFI is Tangonet, so it's miserably slow. Camp cable is adequate. We used our DISH to get our preferred channels. AT&T provided two bars LTE. We will not stay here again. - OH2SD

Rates are high and going to $80 with the discount May 2016. That being said it is less than 10 miles to the ferry to SF, less than 14 miles to the Golden Gate Bridge. Less than 20 miles to wine country and cheese country. Sites are very tight but hey we are over 58 feet long. 3/4 of park is park models and parking for your toad is at a premium everywhere in the area. Stayed 4 nights. - Landyachty

We stayed here after being turned away at another park where we thought we had a confirmed reservation. I was leery because of reviews I'd seen, but desperate to park for the night.
The park was actually a step up from the one we had originally selected. The sites are closely spaced, but do have enough room for a 40' motorhome with slides on both sides. The location, while farther from SF, is close to everything in Marin county and only 45 minutes from Sonoma wine country. There is a nice deli on site, and while the Wi-Fi was spotty, the staff did try to compensate by offering plenty of access coupons for multiple devices. Sprint cell service worked well in the area. They also provided good information on local services such as grocers, restaurants, hardware stores, etc. - Acornalley

I agree with other comments about the two sections with the pet section being inferior. However, the site was spacious and very quiet, considering it is on an air base. A great bargain for the area. We would definitely stay there again. - Joe Brunold

This is a nice campground, ideally located for us to visit the Lake Tahoe and Napa area by car during our six-night visit. We were in the "no animals" part of the park, arguably the nicer part. The back-in gravel pads (no pull-throughs) are narrow, and the hedges that separate each site make the sites even narrower. We had full hook-ups with 50 amp service. The campground is just inside the main gate, easily accessed by making the first right turn followed by another immediate right turn.
We arrived on Saturday to find the office closed on weekends. However, the manager happened to be driving past the campground and saw us arrive. He stopped by to welcome us and give us a lay of the land. Our name and site assignment were prominently displayed on a list in the office window. The office is only open for limited hours on weekday mornings and afternoons.
The campground claims to have basic cable TV available for free; however, we could not get any stations. We were told that long-term visitors can pay for a cable box through the local cable provider. We were able to get excellent digital TV coverage over the air for free.
One must pay for Wi-Fi. We did, and it was a waste of money. We could access the Internet less than half the time, and would often lose the signal and have to attempt to login over and over. Definitely not worth the cost.
All in all, the location and reasonable nightly cost make this a worthwhile stop. Strongly suggest having reservations. - TGOHal

Very nice FamCamp with a nice laundry room, clean restrooms and showers, and thoughtful layout. There is a pet area and a non-pet area, so if you don't want to camp near anyone with a pet, you have that option as pets are not allowed in part of the FamCamp. We never saw anyone in the camp office. They are only open for a few hours in the morning and a few hours in the afternoon. They close for lunch in the middle of the day, which is when we arrived, so we self-registered, which was an easy process. No WiFi, no cable. Our AT&T hotspot worked fine and antenna picked up all major networks. - LifeRidingShotgun

This park is mostly just a parking lot. It is very tight, but most Elks RV parking is that way. Great place for an overnight stay or for a couple of days to see the area. Little grassy area behind sites 1-8. - Eagle4

This is probably our 4th stay at Petaluma Elks, and we would not consider any other park in this area. Park manager is very attentive and goes out of her way to make you comfortable and enhance your stay. There are very few trees, but there is a nice grassy area behind some sites. Lodge is friendly and there are many activities available. Local attractions include cheese and wine outlets and the famous Petaluma Creamery for wonderful ice cream. Close to freeway for visits to Healdsburg, Sebastopol, Sonoma and other quaint towns. - barbwire65
Dec 2013 - $25.00
Highway noise is quite noticeable. Lots of bright security lighting even though the neighborhood is a business park and very safe. Narrow spaces ~15' wide. Good voltage and water pressure. Basically a parking lot behind club. There are many activities and they will park right in your campsite on Bingo night. Wi-Fi in the lodge. It was easy to make reservations online, but a surprise that they were needed. - L. Allen

I stayed here one night and it was conveniently located to a book event I was attending. There's shopping nearby. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend staying here while visiting San Francisco. - ArmandV
May 2016 - $85.00
Location (close proximity to Larkspur Ferry and San Francisco), flat site, and better-than-average WiFi for a campground are the only positives for this RV park. On the negative side, it was pricey ($85) per night. Sites were tight/close together, all back-in. Showers and restrooms were moldy and filthy, plus you have to walk down a narrow, poorly lit tunnel to get to them and then the step up to the facilities is a huge step up, bigger than the biggest Motorhome step. More than half the sites were occupied by locals with multiple cars who blocked your ability to park your tow without sticking out in the street. Laundry locked at 8pm. Stayed only because of location. - DebGA
Apr 2016 - $40.00
My rating is judging this park for what it is: a campground with great access to San Francisco. It is, as others have said, a parking lot with red-painted railroad ties to separate sites. The sites are level, are on rocks so you're not tracking in dust and dirt and the hook-ups are easy. The bathrooms are cleaned every day, the staff is fun and full of knowledge about the area. It is extremely close to shopping and within walking distance to Trader Joes. But, the best part is that it is within a 15-minute walk to the ferry to San Francisco and within a 15-minute drive over the bridge if you want to take your car to the city. We like to hike and it is close to a plethora of hiking locations, in China Camp SP, or in Marin Headlands or in Point Reyes National Seashore. If you like lighthouses, there are two within a 40-minute drive. There is a wetlands trail right outside the park which can be a short or a long walk, depending upon which route you take. There are bike trails all over the area for walking also.
We liked this park for what it was - location, location, location and we'd definitely come back. Our cost was for a month and we were given an extra site for our Jeep. - swike
