RV Parks in Bay Area, California

RV Parks in Bay Area, California
With such stunning natural wonders as the John Muir Woods, Half Moon Bay and Redwood City, the San Francisco Bay area is a beautiful place to take a vacation with an RV. If you do head out West, be sure to find a campground ahead of time, because San Francisco and its neighboring cities are notoriously difficult for motorists to find parking, let alone for RVers to find a park.

Candlestick RV Park

Candlestick RV Park is one of the only parks within the San Francisco city limits, located right outside of Candlestick Park, where the San Francisco 49ers play, and it is only about 1,000 feet from the South Basin of the bay. There are many convenient public transportation and shuttle options, so you don't need to bring a separate car or worry about driving to get around the city. There are 165 RV hookup sites and 24 tent sites, picnic areas, showers, a laundromat and a grocery store, and propane is available for purchase. The commons room features a big screen television and games. Guests are also welcome to enjoy the park's free Wi-Fi.

San Francisco RV Resort

Located in Pacifica, a small, quiet beach town just south of San Francisco, San Francisco RV Resort is one of the only parks in the area that offers a beach view from the grounds. RVs are invited to park right along the coastline. There's a hot tub, swimming pool, free Wi-Fi, showers, cable television, playground, a laundromat, a grocery store and game arcade. Propane is available for sale. Pets are welcome provided they stay leashed, and there's a dog run. Long- and short-term visitors are welcome to use the 182 fully equipped sites.

Pillar Point RV Park

A short distance south of Pacifica sits Half Moon Bay, a stunning town filled with redwoods, hiking trails, forests and beautiful bay views. Pillar Point RV Park is right beside the harbor and located on a six-mile long trail that leads right to the center of the town. Guests can go fishing in the bay or enjoy a whale watching excursion that departs from the harbor. Internet access is available for purchase, and well-behaved pets are welcome. The park does not accept reservations, so those visiting on a busy weekend are advised to arrive before the rush. Monthly and weekly discounts are available, but the lack of amenities make long-term stays somewhat difficult. This resort offers few showers, no grocery store, no propane for sale and no laundromat.
