San Francisco area RV parks?

We are planning on going to the San Francisco/Santa Cruz/Morgan Hill area of California for a week in Sept.,but haven't been able to find a descent RV Park to stay at,without being near railway tracks? Looking for a park similar to Coyote Valley RV Resort,minus the noisy railroad tracks?
Anybody have a suggestions,I have looked at many websites such as "Review of RV Parks and Campgrounds",but haven't come up with anything yet? Has to be big rig friendly.
Any suggestions would be appreciated,Thanks.

There are also a couple of state beach campgrounds in Santa Cruz, if that is an area that works for you. And there's a campground up in Pacifica that's right on the ocean if you want to be closer to the city.

San Francisco area RV parks?

I have a TT on a annual lease site at the Encore/Thousand Trails Campground in Morgan Hill. Not fancy, but very quiet (except for the mornings when the wild turkeys are foraging through the CG for acorns). My space is near the Uvas creek and I can hear the water flowing over the rocks there.

Easy drive into either Morgan Hill or Gilroy. Easy access to the 101 to San Jose and points north.

Morgan Hill has a nice old downtown area with eateries and shops.

Power and water hookups, but no sewer due to the nearness of the Uvas creek, preserve status, etc. Dump station and honey wagon service available.

I enjoy it there.

Ana Francisco RV park. Stayed there 5 days jan 15. A little pricey but on ocean and 14 min from downtown San Fran and close to BART system. I would stay there again. You can dry camp there and you have direct full view of ocean!

I prefer the Alameda Fair Grounds RV Park. They have LONG pull-thru's that could handle my 72 foot rig plus even the car once I took it out of the trailer. Nice grass sites with full hookups.

Had to respond when you mentioned railroad tracks. Whenever we see a railroad track, my wife or myself usually comment that an RV park must be near. In the general area you are referring to, we stay at Betabel RV. It definitely has trains nearby.

One of my favorites is Seacliff Beach about 5 miles south of Santa Cruz.

I dont know of many places you can camp much closer to the ocean than this place.
