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…

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…

Camping w/ Family

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

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.

Great camp for the kids

This KOA is pretty big with plenty of options for RV sites. Wide variety of full hook-ups or partial hook-ups. Like most (if not all) KOAs, you can also tent camp or tent cabins. Good size dog park for the pets to run and be free, as well as plenty of fun activities to entertain the kiddos. For us,…

Resting Mountain Side Area

This is only a free resting area. Park your car and relax. Trash can and some kind of side trail but I wouldn’t count on any long trail. Surrounding Mountain side is nice.

Very quiet during the week

Camp Wednesday to Friday was very quiet and peaceful, beautiful hikes along streams and lots of chipmunks and other wildlife in the campground. I'm in a wheelchair and had no problem getting around the campsite. There's also a great bike path that goes for several miles. Sites are a little closer…

Not bad

This is a big campground. The spaces are nice and big. You can camp on grass, gravel and cement whichever you prefer. Weather was good. Overcast in the morning and sunny in the afternoon. Nice big beach you can take dogs on.
