Only because it's close to downtown SF

That's the only reason why we're here. Reservation making is a pain since it's all via email/ online. Spaces for rvs are unpaved and additional cars are on cement. Hookups are pretty fast away and needed my sewer extention.

There are full time residents along with short term. If you have slide…

Simple and Basic

A 5 mile hike from the Bear Valley Trailhead leading to a small campground with 12 sites.  We stayed at #9.  Potable water and vault toilets are available, with each site also having a picnic table, charcoal barbecues and bear boxes.  Wood fires are not permitted.  A stream runs beside the…

Winter Rains

The camp sites were gravel on dirt, which became muddy with large puddles in the December rains. They are simple back-ins with water and electricity and no physical barriers demarcating one site from the next aside from the small concrete utilities pad. The staff were super friendly, and they…

Great overnight spot

Drove past the gps directions, a lot of pull offs along the road. Some safer than others. Didn’t have any issues staying for the night.

DONT DO YOUR LAUNDRY THERE

Candlestick RV Park is expensive, extremely narrow - obviously people don't go there for the view or the nice camping experience but because it's closest to SF - so go there if you want to explore the beautiful city: Metro is 15 Min. walk an takes you downtown. But please don't do your laundry…

Illegal to sleep overnight

It's illegal to sleep overnight on HWY 1 and you're at a higher risk of getting a ticket.

Camping w/ Family

An excellent place to camp that's just minutes away from San Francisco. Trails are well kept and maintained.

Way better than the bad reviews say!

If you want a great little place with quick easy access to San Francisco that has a great view of the ocean this place is great! And affordable! It's a little extra on a Thousand Trails membership... but the area is just so crazy expensive I can understand the need. The staff was welcoming on the…

Expensive for this campground

Full hookup but sites are very tight and it’s noisy being right against the freeway. Other campers are noisy running their cars and motorcycles at night. We were to b in site 22 by office but it was taken. Lady didnt seem to know her sites very well. She told ys 25 was available it someone was in…

Nice dirt free campground

As others have said, close neighbors and gravel, but it's level and clean. Lady at the front desk was very cordial, bathrooms and showers clean, free excellent wifi and over 100 TV channels with full hookups. San Fran price though.

A fantastic KOA

I have stayed here several times and always have a great experience. Large park with a variety of sites. Great pool and tons of stuff to keep the kids occupied. Staff has always been friendly and accommodating.

Craggy Meadow Urban Hideout

Let's just call a spade a spade here, alright? This campground isn't going to be one that you look back at and fondly recollect a surreal experience in the middle of nature with all of the rustic touches one might come to expect when camping in NorCal. And while the Redwoods and Sequoias will steal…

Truly special little site

Hiking in from the falls site at sunset will reward you with the most spectacular sunset views!! It’s easier to hike in from the Bear Valley side though and then you can always do a little evening hike along the ridge too. Love camping so close to the beach and the campsites have some privacy from…

Fun for crabbing

We went here to try crabbing for the first time. The site is very nice and all spots are walking distance to the coastline beaches. The campsite we were able secure was in the vehicle meadow area. Each spot has enough room, but each spot is right on top of the other. If you don’t have friendly…

So so

Sites are not leveled, most do not have sewer hook up, 68$ a night, space is very small. I don’t know why this park gets high stars on review.
