Trailer Villa in Redwood City

This is close to the Silicon Valley area right off 101, with easy access to the Bay Front expressway (84).

Trailer Villa RV Park - Home

The front 3/4 of the park are fixed trailers and park homes, but the back three or four rows are relatively large 50-amp full hookup pull-throughs for RVs.

We've stayed there before. We'd go there again.

Stayed at Sonoma County Fairgrounds. Wish we had stayed in Vallejo. The ferry from there was the best hassle-free way to get to downtown SF.

We used Pacifica about a decade ago with a 32' Class A. It was tight! We came there after being at the one near Candlestick. Next time I will be using Half Moon Bay RV park to the south and Marin RV to the north.

Here's another alternative that works very well Welcome to The Fair Park RV This park is located at the Alameda Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, CA, which is about 40 miles from SF. However what makes it so convenient is it is about a 3 mile drive to the nearest BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) station, which takes you right into SF (you actually travel in a tube beneath the SF Bay) so you avoid all the automobile traffic.

Most of the large rig sites are grass, with FHU 50 amp, but no cable. Back-in 40' sites are $35.00/night, and 80' pull-throughs are $50.00/night.

There are a lot of open green areas for dog walking/playing, walking/biking trails, close by shopping and excellent restaurants in the area.

I was born and raised in SF, and lived in Pleasanton for 15 years.

BobGad, I live very close by, and the Pleasanton downtown, a short distance from the Fairgrounds RV park, is very nice with good shopping and restaurants. Also, Pleasanton is a very safe town, and as you said, just 3 miles from BART. BART costs about $12 for a round trip, and takes about an hour to get to the city. There is a direct line there so no switching trains. Once in San Francisco, it is about a mile to AT&T park one direction, or you can go the other direction by foot (a nice but long walk along the waterfront) or by vintage trolleys to the Exploratorium, Pier 39, the Aquarium, Fisherman's Wharf, Ghiradelli Square, the Maritime Museum, and the Cable Cars. If you drive in, wait until about 9am to avoid commute traffic. Have a great visit!

Last time I was in SF I stayed at Marin Park RV , not too bad . Real close to the high speed ferry . I park my rv and get around on my bike , are there any other parks in this area I should be looking at ? Keeping in mind I'm using my bicycle for transport .

Not to keep pushing the RV park in Pleasanton, but it's very close to a BART station and they do allow bikes on the trains Bikes on BART | bart.gov I lived in Pleasanton when I used to train for triathlons, and there are some great bicycle riding areas. You can go north and climb Mt Diablo, south to Calaveras or even further to Mt Hamilton in San Jose and east over the Altamont or into Del Valle park in Livermore.

There is also the Iron Horse Trail Iron Horse Regional Trail - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that you can ride from Pleasanton to Walnut Creek and Concord.

I have to second this park. Have stayed at
1 Petaluma KOA OFTEN 1 hr drive back to the city.
2. Candlestick RV Park for 2 months wife had temp job near Stanford. Loved taking BART to work.
3. Pacific RV Park 30 min drive back to the city.

We just found Marin RV in Greenbrae last month. Great for driving back inti the city. Or a short walk to bus or ferry. There is another park about 3 or 4 blocks away from Marin but much tighter spaces.
