Beautiful, clean, easily-accessed new Southeast Bay campground

This campground opened in August 2021, so the facilities are still brand-spanking new. They haven't yet installed the washer/dryer and haven't yet locked in a vendor to operate the camp store, but I'm told those things are coming.

What they do have are scores of hookup sites for $60 / night and three tent / drive-in no hookup water-only sites for $45 / night. The sites are close together and things are relatively packed in, but it doesn't feel overwhelming since there's plenty of open space and people are pretty friendly here.

The best parts about this campground in my opinion are:

  • close to town
  • excellent cellular reception on all carriers
  • warm / hot and clean showers + other facilities
  • nice sound of train off in the distance at night
  • sunrise views
  • stunning walks in the coyote hills and bird-watching in the estuary to the north

Gate closes at 10PM, but you can exit the park over the tiger teeth at any time if you need to. Highly, highly recommend giving this park a stay if you're passing through the Bay. Even if it's a little pricier, you're so close to town you can take care of some errands and not have to drive all the way to the other campgrounds to settle in for the night.

  • 3 tent / drive-in no hookup sites (60,61,62)
  • west side of park showing nice green lawn and dozens of hookup sites
