Top 10 SF Bay Area RV Campgrounds 

Camping in the San Francisco Bay area is a lot of fun. There are so many campgrounds with varying amenities to choose from, and every camp is just a stone’s throw from multiple events in the city. If you’re considering purchasing your RV from El Monte RV, take a look at all the fun places you can explore for San Francisco RV camping.

1. Coyote Valley RV Resort 

Park your El Monte RV here and enjoy the saltwater pool, posh clubhouse, and satellite TV. Located in San Jose, you’re just a short drive between San Francisco and Monterey. Golf courses, running showers and toilets, a dog park, and more round out the perks of staying here. 

2. Fair Park RV

So named because you are parking on fair grounds near Alameda, Fair Park offers restaurants, sports betting, pool, showers, laundry, etc. All hookups for an RV are available for each spot, plus room to park a passenger car next to your RV.

3. Golden Gate Trailer Park 

In terms of San Francisco RV camping, you’re in the middle of it all. The freeway is close by, and access to the waterways in and around San Francisco are onsite. A short drive through the park with your boat and you can drop right into the water and speed into the Bay.

4. Maple Leaf RV Park

This park is located in Morgan Hill, about an hour and a half from San Francisco. There are lots of things to see and do here, including the famed (or infamous, depending how you look at it) Winchester Mystery House. Bay area RV camping extends in all directions and allows you to choose quieter RV campgrounds like Maple Leaf or busier sites like the aforementioned Golden Gate Park.

5. Novato RV Park

Novato is an hour north of San Francisco, but the RV park is touted as one of the best Bay Area RV camping sites around. Because of its popularity, you will need to book an RV site months in advance. It isn’t just the amenities that make it popular either. It’s one of the best for accommodating the biggest RVs on the road.

6. Olema RV Resort and Campground

Olema RV Resort is located in Olema, an hour north of San Francisco along the coast. Its proximity to Point Reyes National Seashore makes this campground a very popular one for anyone that wants surf, sun, sand, and camping rolled into one vacation.

7. San Francisco RV Resort

After picking up your RV from your local El Monte dealer, head to San Francisco RV Resort for the ocean views. It’s not only breathtaking perched on the parking lot overlooking the ocean, but also the sounds of waves crashing every night can be very soothing. Full hookups and powerful amps with free Wi-Fi make this camp a real treat. 

8. San Francisco North/Petaluma KOA

KOA campgrounds are synonymous with convenience and comfort. You can expect the best in amenities and planned activities every day, and this park is also located near Point Reyes National Seashore. With Napa Valley and its wine tours not that far away, you can explore and enjoy much more than just San Francisco itself.

9. Tradewinds RV Park

Popular for its location closest to the ferries in the Bay, the Tradewinds RV Park allows for day excursions to Napa Valley and Alcatraz prison. It also has great views of the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge.

10. Uvas Pines RV Park 

Also located in Morgan Hill, Uvas Pines RV Park offers campers everything they would expect or need when RV camping. El Monte dealers in the San Francisco area recommend Uvas Pines for the quietest of retreats.
