We are in smaller travel trailer so we rely on the campsite showers and facilities. I got a call less than 1 day before arrival that they had no laundry or shower facilities. I could not find a place to rebook in this area as I had made my reservations 5 mos ahead of time. I asked for a discount but they refused. The place has very tight spaces that are not really numbered. It is very run down with garbage on the sites. Site was dead, clumpy grass and broken, uneven concrete and stones. They had gardens but they are all overgrown. We were told there was cable TV but there was none on our site. Then, on the last day, I found the hookup buried in the weeds in the garden. The only thing goings for this place were it was next to a golf course and you could walk to the beach. They had a nice place for the dog to relieve itself. This could be a lovely campground. It has the location. It needs its grounds cleaned up. The campsites need new picnic tables and the gardens need to be cleaned up. The campsites need to be repaved. The building they call a bathroom needs a complete face lift in the outside. - Jana Bair

Pretty basic park. Streets are narrow. Not easy to get into the spots. The people were so friendly and helpful. People we went with wanted to stay an extra day. Initially there were no vacancies. But it all worked out and they were able to stay. Thanks to the wonderful people in the office. - Sili

Way overpriced for the amenities! No WiFi. Trash trucks or something beeping at 5:00 and 6:30 in the morning, twice in one week. Untidy construction bins in front of our site. We have a 40' motorhome and they put us in a very short space. We had to remove bikes before we could park and we can't open the awning because of the tight location. Even though the surrounding area is beautiful, I wouldn't recommend this RV park. - Brenda Boudreaux

Previous review I found accurate and helpful. I stayed here one night in late October and can add a few observations. The closing time of the park varies with the season, when I was there it was 5:00. The restrooms with the showers were locked at 4PM when I checked them out. I flagged down one of the workers who agreed to unlock them for me, but they said they would like to lock them by 5PM as they were leaving then. They told me they expected the RV's to be self contained and did not expect them to be using the restrooms. Showers worked good and were hot, but they are in a building with walls but no roof, so are basically outdoors as far as air temperature. Plane noise was plenty loud when I was there, but it didn't bother me, especially as I was there because of the closeness to the airport. Also you will have some distant highway and train noise but not too bad. There are not really typical campground spaces here, just at the back edge of an asphalt parking lot there are numbered picnic tables and utilities. The old lines for regular parking are still there, with no marking borders between 'campsites'. I think you will want to be here for the location, and with that will come noise and people. While the main gate on the road is closed in the evening the public can and does walk into the park after it is officially closed. All the staff in the park were very friendly and helpful and I would stay here again if I needed to be in the area. My cost was $45 plus a $7 reservation fee. - Wandering Dave

This is an odd little park that's more of an experiment by San Mateo County Parks & Recreation. There are four (4) sites marked off along the edge of a parking lot with a 20 amp pedestal and a water spigot. The dump station is at the Sheriff's Shooting Range about 1/2 mile away and it could be a hassle to get in close when they're training.
First, the positives. It's right on the bay as in, if you fall out of bed, you might drown! It's very well patrolled and transients are gone by 8 PM. There are 3 "pull-in" sites but it would be sketchy if the other sites are occupied. The 4th site is a "back-in." The shower & bathroom facilities are shared with other park users such as wind surfers, kayakers, and paddle boarders. They are closed and locked by about 7 PM and don't open again until 7 AM.
There are some negatives for such picturesque "campsites." The spaces are all roughly east-west orientation with the utilities on the south side. However, most people tend to pull in facing east which puts the water and electric cord on the side of the RV away from the pedestals, which, since there aren't any signs, one can park whichever way one desires but it creates some interesting issues.
There are "rules" posted at each site but they're more like guidelines. All in all, one should chill and adopt a laissez-faire attitude while staying at Coyote Point. After all, this is San Francisco.
SFO is right across the bay but the jet noise wasn't noticeable due to the prevailing off shore winds. Speaking of winds, in July, it was "rockin' & rollin'" the motorhome in the afternoons and evenings. - LMandTinView

Electric hook-up only. Site 42 is a good level site. Someone was cutting the grass/weeds every day, so it's noisy for an hour or more (depending on how long they are mowing). Dump station is really hard to get in and out of. They need to separate the potable water from the dump site. It would make getting in and out much easier. Room for only 1 vehicle at a time. Nice walk to Princeton and Pillar Point on coastal trail. - MarBu

This is a beautiful coastal campground with a great view of the ocean. Our back in electric campsite was large, with a nice shady area, a nice view, and a short walk through the ice plant to the beach. Minor leveling required. The day use area is nearby, but not a problem. The restrooms are older, and while cleaned daily, get a lot of use. The gentlemen who cleans the restrooms is very friendly, and knows a lot about the area. The restrooms are much cleaner than many California State Park locations (the restrooms at Pigeon Point Light house are filthy.) The beach here has enough room to sit and watch the ocean, but the drop off is too steep for wading and swimming, with dangerous currents. The next beach north is much gentler. Reserve early! - Rich and Judith

This is a very popular campground in the SF Bay Area, so booking at the very moment the booking window opens is key! We were in a site without hook-ups, which was just fine for us for the weekend as you rarely need AC/heat on the coast and we don't mind bringing along a generator if need be. The campsites appeared to be well-maintained, but the bathrooms could have been cleaner and need a refreshing. There are lots of great attractions nearby, some within walking distance, and there is a great walking/bike trail that goes right by the campground. It can get EXTREMELY windy here so we appreciated that our site was oriented towards the ocean so that the wind wasn't broadsiding us. Definitely don't leave your awning unattended here. We will be back! - MissCampsALot

I stayed at this mobile home park with my 36' motorhome in 2009 for about 6 months. It is clean and well cared for, management on site are very nice people. However, the owners are very stiff in any dealings and do not bend under any circumstances. They will allow 1(one) pet: cat or dog under 30 pounds. If you have 2 cats or dogs and they don't even add up to 30 pounds together, even they are not allowed. People have had to get rid of their pets if they live here. They have rules for every little thing. They are big sticklers about even the smallest thing. If you are human and could very possibly make an error, I would not suggest you come to this park. Even on a per night basis, if you have more than one pet you are not allowed. It is an $18 charge for your credit check, they have an application that asks questions that are, quite frankly none of their business. Motorhomes are to be started at least once a week and even starting them monthly or longer for your required 10-20 minute period is not allowed. If the electricity fails and it is winter time: Do NOT start your generator. It doesn't matter that it's cold and you have no heat. They came over at 10pm and said I had to turn it off. What??? One is not allowed heat? Not a place to stay if you are a person that some how has faults or actually plans to live life! - justme2

This mobile home park was a disgrace. The owner did not allow very many things and the rent itself is over priced. The owner overcharges her patrons and refuses to let the owners sell their mobile homes. She changes the rules about every six months and a lot of the rules don't even make sense. I would also like to point out that the rules themselves are unfair. We will not be staying there again. I would not recommend this park to anyone unless they are very rich and very patient. - Rayvn

Sandev Mobile Park in San Leandro on the east side of the San Francisco bay is quite nice. It is mostly mobile homes but has some RV spots. All spots are clean, wide and well maintained. All sites are back in. They have wireless in the office area, and some sites can pick it up inside the RV. The place is remarkably quiet except for the occasional train, which run mostly in the daytime. IMO, it is much better than constant freeway noise. The place is cash only, $40 a night or $220 a week. I think it is a good deal if you want to go to places on the east side of the bay. The BART station is a couple miles away, and the Ferry from Alameda to SF is a nice ride. - Daveyjo

Park is nice and clean. Have stayed here several times over the last few years. The only problem this last time were the skunks. At night while we were around the fire pit, lots of them would come out. So many that the kids didn't want to walk to the restrooms. I have never seen it this bad before. - Wendy 67

Nice campsite with a lot of facilities. Showers and restrooms are clean but not the newest ones. Sites are big enough and offers a lot of free space around the vehicle. We were very surprised about the enormous price. It costs too much compared to the service (no BBQ at the site, no swimming pool). - WorldTravelers

Beautiful location and setting. Park is very well maintained. Stayed in a pull through premium site which was very narrow and close to the neighboring site. No cell phone reception which would be less of an issue if the Wi-Fi in the park was working, which it wasn't. All of the equipment is there but no signal. Park staff advised us the signal is "sketchy" but my suspicion is it was turned off in the RV area for the off season. At check in we were given a full page of rules to follow. Most are common sense but each rule is followed with a dollar amount for the fine that would be levied for violations up to $350, REALLY!! Park is not dog friendly as dogs are limited to a defined area, ($350 fine for violation). In fairness I didn't see anyone being harassed over a violation but then most RV folks are decent people who just want to enjoy themselves and not annoy others. I would hope management rethinks the monetary fine matter and just makes sure the advertised services are functional. - ChuckD

The location of this place is killer! They don’t have much more amenities then your hook ups, so if you want showers this would not be a good stop for you. But, if you want a view from your RV or a quick walk down to trails or beach area for your pups this is the spot !!
You do hear some road noise in the night but it didn’t disturb us too much. It’s more in the morning hours once your up and moving that the cars pick up. - PrimeTime

Clean restroom but could use a little updating. Courteous host. No showers or laundry facilities but great view and good price. San Francisco prices (25 ml away) were a lot more. Close to restaurants and directly on beach. All hookups available and close to highway so easy access. - Susan D98

If you are coming here expecting anything other than a fantastic view, you will be very disappointed. This is basically a parking lot with. No other services available in the park. They say they have cable and Wi-Fi. The cable shuts down several times a day and you have to restart it. The Wi-Fi is hard to use. The town of half-moon bay is very satisfactory. The only laundry facilities are in half-moon bay and they are only available Monday through Friday from 8 to 5. - Sarshs1mom

First, a word of caution about this campground: It is located 9 miles out on a very windy, narrow road. We were challenged by this road when pulling our 24' TT. That being said, this is a beautiful campground with spacious sites that are very private. The restroom and shower facilities are immaculate. The campground is located on rolling hills dotted with old oaks. The amazing thing about this place is you are 30 minutes from teeming San Jose and environs. We stayed here while exploring San Jose, Saratoga, Stanford Campus and Filoli Gardens. To return to our campsite after negotiating the freeways was wonderful, relaxing and invigorating. If you stay during the warm summer months, try to get a shaded site as it could get pretty hot back in this valley. We had #6 and were well pleased with this site. - Campy

We came up to San Jose to see the Winchester House but fell in love with the county park. Lots of different types of oak trees and wild life. Right when we pulled in, we saw a wild pig 150 yards of the check-in kiosk. We were the only ones there when we went except for the camp host. Looks like the county was doing some renovations to the tent camping areas. Nice place to bring your mountain bike, there were lot's of trail to ride or hike. WARNING TO ALL RV'Rs: Do not use the directions provided by Navtec, google maps. It directs you to take Quimby Rd. DO NOT TAKE this route! Three back to back severe switch backs and a road that narrows to one lane. Use CA130 as your route, this route may be too narrow for any RVs over 35' -- We did see a 40' traveling on it once. - Woods Family

We stay here every October to attend the dog show held at the fairgrounds. They have fixed up the buildings since our stay one year ago, but the sites remain the same. Uneven lumpy un-mown grass with a zillion flies. No fire ring or picnic table. These sites should go for $35-$40 per night, not $65. As we were getting ready to pull out the last morning, I was taking a shower when the water pressure went from very low to none at all. Turned out that the City of Pleasanton was doing work on the water lines; there would be no water for two hours. They neglected to tell anyone this; supposedly the City didn't tell them, but that's pretty unlikely. They did allow us to stay later than the check out time, until the water was on, so we could flush tanks, etc. - MarvMarvs

The RV park is located within the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, CA. The park has back-in and pull through full hook up sites. The driveways are asphalt and site pads are either grass or dirt/gravel. There's nothing special here but it's quiet with plenty of open space within the fairgrounds. There is WiFi which we found to be generally good and reliable. The bathrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. There's plenty of nearby shopping and there is a BART station not far away in Dublin. We paid $50.50 per night for a 50amp back-in site. - Coopsecondact

Other reviewers have provided comments that I can second regarding side by side hooks, narrowness of sites, etc. Visually the "park" is a mess. They clearly do not enforce their 21 day max stay rule and many sites show "untidy" sites (and that is generous). The office staff was pleasant. It was quiet at night. I could only receive emails (not send) on their internet and have never encountered that before. Would we return, yes, reluctantly since it's the only game in town! - rncordy

Extremely friendly staff. We were parked next door to the owners home. There are a lot of full timers and some of the units not to pretty. Having said that we never felt unsafe. This park is an oasis in the middle of a suburban neighborhood. Lots of pets around, but no green grass for their use. Our old dog did not have any trouble with using the blacktop but the younger dog would not use it. We had to go off grounds for her. It is a convenient place to park if you are going to visit San Francisco. The transit station is close by if you are smart enough to understand how to use it. I believe the way to visit San Francisco is to fly in, rent a hotel and transportation and leave the RV at home. If we were in the area again and needed to stay a night or two in the area, we would stay here again. - cubadoug

This is not a "resort" type facility by any standard, but OK for a few nights visiting family in the area. The "daily" sites are toward the front, with the rest being long term residents. That being said, it was a quiet spot in an urban environment. There aren't many choices in the Bay Area, and this was fine for a few days. This place has been around for 75 years! Very helpful staff. - ronboett

We stayed around the 4th of July. We had a nice semi-secluded site near the back of the park. About the only one I could see, as all of the others are just one after another in a straight line. By and large the park was quite. Very close to Henry Cowell State Park and Roaring Camp. Easy drive to Santa Cruz. More of a jumping off site. Certainly would return for access to above mentioned attractions, if we could get same site! - Burnking

This is not a big park, about 100 sites total and that includes about a dozen tent sites. The park does live up to it's name though, massive redwood trees, some 300' tall and thousands of years old are throughout the park. We had 5 in our site alone. We picked this park not only because it has full hook ups, but also because it has a variety of sites that can fit a rig 45' in some of the sites. The park is a bit short on amenities, no pool or spa, no workout room, and the playground is a basketball hoop, and a tether ball pole. There is a clubhouse with a pool table and an up-rite piano, and river access on the back of the park to the San Lorenzo River. The park is pet friendly, but there is no dedicated dog area. Many of the sites are pretty close together as they did their best to make as many spots as possible in a small park. Made reservation 4 months ago and was able to get us one of the nicest sites in the park. Our site, #62 would easily fit a 45' rig. The curb side of the site has the redwoods and a large buffer area to boot. Due to the giant redwoods satellite reception was impossible. There is cable TV here, 25 channels to be exact. Picture quality ranged from good to fair. WiFi was also free, but the ability of it to keep up with the demand was sketchy. There are two sets of restrooms, one set is handicapped accessible, the other is not due to small doors and a 6" step into the shower area. In spite of all this, I liked the park because of the ambiance provided by the giant trees and river flowing in the back. There is a steep slope to get down to the river that can be tricky. - SargeW

We truly enjoyed our week-long stay at Santa Crux Redwoods RV Resort. The campground is clean and the staff is wonderful. Sites are spacious for CA and we loved the trees. The WiFi is excellent. We will definitely return! - Josh H
