We are going to the San Francisco area in September, any suggestions for campgrounds?

There is only one in entire area, its in Pacifica, we just spent a week there. The cost is $80/night and they are full everyday, so make reservations. Its a parking lot with hook ups, awful WiFi, but only gig in town.

Hi JOR2,
Consider the San Francisco RV Resort. It may be the same as Pacifica. Go to San Francisco RV Resort | Park your RV on the Cliffs overlooking the Pacific Coastline | Pacifica, California and take a look. If is a parking lot with very small sites. That being said, it is close to San Fran and that is where you will spend your time.

A few miles up the road, in Petaluma,Ca, there is a nice KOA. And they stage tours from their campground to San Francisco. We stayed there in Oct 2012.

We stay at one in the middle of town. Candlestick RV park I think (not real sure on name). It was just across the street from Candlestick ball park. It too is a concrete parking lot. All fenced in (high fence). It too was expensive. If I were to do it again I'd stay someplace north & drive toad in there. Good luck

If you have a toad, you can go south down HWy1 to Pescodero and stay at the Coastnoa KOA. It is south of Pacifica and beautiful. Day trip into SF and surrounding area.

SF

X2 on Petaluma KOA. Check out Half Moon Bay and Pelican Point too. Napa, Fairfield. You could stay as far south as Pleasanton and catch BART into the city.

The area around Candlestick is not a nice neighborhood to be in after dark. I occasionally windsurf there and it's 'sketchy' even during the day.

That why I said they had a high fence. Lol We were not out after dark but felt very safe inside the park.

We stayed at the San Fran RV park in Pacifica twice.

Great thing is that you can walk to the market and a great english pub serves fish and chips.

If you want a more reasonable place to stay you might look into the Santa Rosa fairgrounds. They accept all kinds of memberships for discounts (Good Sam, Escapees, Passport America, FMCA, etc) and the rate is great for the area. It's a easy drive on 101 to San Francisco.

We've taken this small group tour of the city San Francisco Tours, Sightseeing Bus San Francisco, SF Shuttle Tours and even our daughter who lives in the city was very impressed with it. We drove the car to Larkspur ferry landing on the Santa Rosa side of the bay, hopped on the ferry for a pleasant ride past Alcaltraz and docked at Fisherman's Wharf where the tour met us. It was all day with stops at the important spots and we crossed the Golden Gate and had lunch in Sausalito. It was a wonderful way to see the city. The tour ended back at Fisherman's Wharf and we again took the ferry across the bay to our car. We especially liked it because of the small van instead of a huge tour bus and we were able to get off at places to explore more thoroughly, such as at the Japanese Garden. We normally don't do tours but this one is highly recommended.

Another place to stay is Napa Valley Expo. Have a great trip!

JOR2: Not sure if your last question was directed to my post or not but if so, the Santa Rosa campground is Sonoma County Fairgrounds:

RV Park and Lodging / Sonoma County Fairgrounds

The Napa Valley Expo is:

Candlestick RV Park, San Francisco

This is the closest to San Francisco. We have stayed there about 20 times over the years.

There is an RV park in Novato.

http://www.novatorvpark.com/

This is not far from the city, about 20 miles. The KOA in Petaluma is larger, but all are $$.
