The campsite is completely abandoned. But all the surrounding spots are alive and thriving. The actually campsite is made more for parking RVs and vehicles rather than setting up a tent. There are no showers or hook ups or water. Basically it’s a good spot to pull up and nap then roll out. Lots of gravel. The surrounding areas and trails provide for random good camping spots though.
Brannan Island is conveniently located from SF Bay Area. Great for families. Plenty of roads to bike out / back. Love being close to the water for recreation. Clean facilities. Can be windy. Since easy access it is busy, sometimes more noise in evenings to my liking. It's a great option for beginner campers as well as veterans.
Camping memberships are required, and it is very difficult to sell your membership
They have a lot of cute tiny houses in this campground. You can bring your own tiny house, or rent one for the weekend. There is an open house once or twice a year you can come and visit all the tiny houses in the community.
This RV park has its own marina and is located on the San Joaquin River. We brought the boat for a nice weekend getaway from the city. Lovely views of Mount Diablo and sunsets on the water, lot of waterfront restaurants and cruising places.
There is a swimming pool and tennis court, and large common area with a clubhouse you can use.
It's pleasant but mostly a parking lot for RVs with spaces right next to each other. We camped here in October 2018 and it was quite crowded. We were lucky to get a spot on dirt under a tree, so we weren't in the parking lot, but right next to it. You pass vineyards on the road to the campground and can see them from the campground, as it's on a hill. You're also pretty close to town so it's easy to get meals or groceries. We arrived early evening and left early in the morning the next day so did not get to explore the area. We were pleased, though, to see that there's a nice archery range right next to the campground.
The fee was very reasonable. I can't quite remember what it was, but I think it was $12. There was wifi but with so many people in the area, it wasn't a strong signal. There were DVDs available to borrow at the check in station.
We would stay here again.
