San Fransisco area campgrounds

Traveling to area in June in our motor home and need advice on nice campgrounds. We like state parks, but it appears that our coach is too long for most.

Welcome to the forum!

Big rigs can be a challenge in State and National Parks. The San Francisco area doesn't have a wide variety but we're headed that way tomorrow.

You won't find anything in The City itself. Probably the closest one I think is called the San Francisco RV Resort and it's overlooking the ocean in Pacifica. I've never stayed there but from what I've read it sounds like mostly paved spots.

We now stay at Navato RV Resort in the north bay. Nothing fancy but close to the ferry. I've heard that some like the Pleasanton Fairgrounds... which is quite a way from SF but has access to BART rapid transit system which can take you in to SF.

Good Luck

Trailer Villa RV Park in Redwood City. They have a new section in the back with about 30 concrete sites. Some pull through and some back in. Very clean and very quite. Will use this again as base camp for trips to San Fran.

We stayed here about 3 weeks ago and they have room for big rigs.

We stayed at the SF RV Resort in Pacifica twice. All paved sites but right on the ocean.

You can walk to the supermarket and a great place to have fish & chips.

We have stayed a few times at KOA Petaluma. It is a lovely, paved, large campground just over the Golden Gate from the San Francisco Pier district. We will gladly return there on our next trip to the SF area.

Candlestick RV Park, San Francisco

Have stayed here many times. Very pricey and can be very close together. But to get into the city is pretty easy from there.

Make reservations, especially if the 49ers are playing across the street
