20 RV Parks near Oakland, California
Oct 2018 - $65.00
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

Location was OK with access to shops and the ferry terminal. There's no spare space capacity, but the place would benefit from some additional facilities such as things for kids. The hosts were quite informative. - JAMESOPH

This park is all about location. Easy access to wide variety of shopping and simple access to the Larkspur Ferry Terminal offering travel to the entire San Francisco Bay Area. A visit here is not about the beauty of the park, it's about visiting the San Francisco area. Some long-term residents offered no ill affects: park is quiet and to the point. Excellent and stable Wi-Fi. Hosts very helpful and informative. - CasaRoll

It would be generous to call this place anything but a dump. The only redeeming features were the LOCATION (within walking/biking distance of Larkspur Ferry to San Francisco. Excellent Wi-Fi (Through Tengo) and full hook-up where everything worked and worked well. This is not a Campground as such. It is a Parking Lot for RVs & Campers. At $40/night PLUS TAXES it is a very expensive Parking Lot. Some serious effort needs to happen before I would rate this place above a one. Desperate people do desperate things. Like Stay Here. - Saskanna

This is our 2nd stay at Marin RV Park, and our impression is that the facility is well-managed, safe, fairly-priced for a Bay area RV park, and seems to attract an ever smaller number of over-nighters and a growing number of long-term residents. It's located a few miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge and a short walk from the Larkspur Ferry terminal - which has direct service to the San Francisco waterfront. The CGs PROs are singular - it has NO competition - if your goal is to secures a safe CG - with direct access by HWY #101 or ferry to SF and less than a 30 minute drive to Muir Woods and Point Reyes. The CGs CONs are 24/7 freeway noise and most sites are so narrow that deploying RV slides may be difficult and sitting outside is a NO GO! Park provided internet was adequate. Our site's cable TV connection did not function, but we were able to deploy our DISH satellite. Surprisingly, our Verizon cell service only had 2-bars. YES, despite the CONs we will return again when visiting the BAY area. - Kona Boy

Very expensive but convenient to ferry to go over to San Francisco (walking distance). Sites are very narrow and close together. Slide outs don't work well at all since sites are so small. The office staff was outstanding and very helpful. Internet worked well. - Jhiggins
Jan 2018 - $110.00
We have stayed here since 2005, usually several times a year. It's gotten more expensive each year. They say because they are so close and have ferry service to San Francisco just a few blocks away, they can charge the Europeans a lot of money. They also now have more long term people. Some of them we have seen and talked to for more than 10 years. It's clean and certainly central, but we will try another park not so close to the city in the future. - Bobcat1

This park is old and doesn't look good on approach. It's not cheap either. But it's the only one anywhere near Menlo Park including going north or south on 101. The back area is really well maintained with very good hook ups, power pole is in good condition. But what really made our stay exceptional is the manager and her husband!
The first night we lost 12V power. It's amazing how dependent a coach is without it. We had 110 power. We called the office on Saturday morning to ask about a mobile repair. There's only one. They tried to get out but were just too busy and could come only on Monday. This manager gentleman, who has considerable RV service knowledge, came to us and diagnosed our problem. He spent at least two hours testing and another hour making a temporary fix. We would have been there a least 2-3 more days, stressed not knowing where the problem was. But he took his personal time to figure out the likely cause, allowing us to reach our destination and get repairs completed while not being in transit. THANK YOU! - Bobcat1

We have "kids" at Stanford and so have stayed here a handful of times. This trip, we are in the expensive, pull-through way back.......on the salt flat bay. It's quiet with a pretty nice view for being in the city. Bathrooms in the expensive seats are newer, high end and spotless. No complaints with sites. They've cleaned up the main resident's section that you drive through to access the rear for overnighters. Staff has turned over, and I miss the adorable older woman I used to interact with in the office. New staff not so sharp. Can't reserve on-line, rarely get through on phone, and took TWO days to return my call. The Wi-Fi is terrible. You get a coupon and, after going through a drill to "register," you might slowly get connected,.......but I never actually got service. I called the vendor's 800 # and, after a 10 min. wait, got some guy who didn't care and blamed it on the fact that the park's bandwidth is insufficient for the number of users (It was mid-day!!!!). Verizon Mi-Fi has rescued me, but I really feel abused to pay $95, and have no internet. If you don't need a pull-through you can probably save ~$15 a night, but you might want to try to get a key for the bathrooms in the back which are a big redeeming factor. - Diesel24J

Alright folks, if you are coming here in an R.V. for a short stay you can't beat it. It has no picnic table, no fires, no club house, and some views; it is an urban R.V. park. You probably aren't planning on spending a lot of time in your rv. You've come here for some specific reason and not to go Glamping.
With that mindset this place is excellent. The sites level up very easily. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry rooms were spotless and are cleaned daily. The showers were fully heated and had plenty of hot water. All the folks I met were extremely friendly and helpful. The staff was on the ball and very pleasant.
As previously mentioned the short term sites are on the bay side of the park and ours had a great view of the bay and the surrounding mountains.
We did not try the park wifi but my Verizion Mifi worked great. Getting in and out of the sites was a dream and there was plenty of room for coach and the the toad. The utilities provided clean 50 amp power, and simple sewer hook up. ( if you find it draining your tank a bit slow loosen the cap on top of the island). There's cable hook up but we spent so little time in the coach we didn't hook up to it. We paid a bit less than $73 for a 7 day stay. The daily rate is $85. The front part of the park is for long term residents and the sites are clean and not cluttered with all the units I observed in very good condition.
We will stay here next time we come to the Bay area. - pumper9x9

Very tight lots. There is literally 3 feet of space between two RV's with extended slide-outs. Not long enough either. No way to park 2 cars, and they charge $18 per day for overflow parking. Wi-Fi is extra. To be fair, it is the cheapest park around, so you get what you paid for. Overall, it is OK to stay couple of days here while visiting San Francisco and Napa Valley, but I did not enjoy the park itself. - skiwest

This park gets you reasonably close to the city, but as you might expect, it is just as densely packed as the surrounding area, and the nearby freeway noise was notable. Paved access roads were easy to navigate to a level gravel site that was only just large enough for our 38' MH and car. Water, sewer, and electricity hookups were convenient. WiFi cost extra, so we used our Verizon hotspot instead. Laundry was convenient. We didn't use the bathrooms. Overall we thought the price was high for the amenities, but not unexpected in a large city. - DaveInOhio
Nov 2017 - $45.00
This is the worst RV park I have stayed in EVER! I wish I had known about this website sooner, but don't understand how anyone can rate this park anything greater than a 2. The sites had NO room between them, the WiFi didn't work, but was still charged for it, the bathrooms are insanely in need of work, and it sits right beside the interstate & is loud. Worst of all, it's in a very seedy part of town. It's full of workers living there vs. travelers. I would NOT recommend anyone use this park. - Ronzo Rig
Dec 2018 - $67.00
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

We stayed in a 37 ft motorhome and it was tight getting to our site. Once in site we could open both slides and still have some room. Park is run down but the manager couple are working on upgrades. 50 amp power was issue, had low voltage on one leg but we got by. Water, you need a regulator as I was told by the manager, did have sewer. No wifi or cable. We used for base since we were here to visit San Francisco and the rate was ok. Several residents with old campers, they were living in. We would not stay again. No picnic tables. - belanga

1. Agree with two reviews preceeding mine. The place is ok for a 1-nighter but we didn't sleep well. Probably over reacting but sometimes you just gotta trust your gut. 2. The maintenance guy, Bart, and neighbor Debbie were super friendly. We arrived late and both came out to help us right away and make sure we settled in fine and told us where we could park our tow rigs. 3. We were told to lock our doors and that sometimes cars just drive through the place. 4. Super close to six flags, which is why we stayed here. 5. Stayed one night and are moving to Marin RV Park. - fandrica

First the good things about this park: location, location, location. The park is in Valejo, within a 15 minute drive to the ferry where there is free parking and a ferry with a one hour ride to San Francisco. The price we paid reflects the weekly rate, and seemed quite reasonable for RV parks in the San Francisco area. The operators of this park are very helpful. Now for the negative. This is an older park, not particularly attractive, mostly occupied by permanent residents who live in older rigs. The hookups all work, but they are old and antiquated. For example the electrical hookup was on a post about 6 feet off the ground. There are a couple of newer sites, but they were really too short for our 40 foot RV, so we chose a site next to the permanent or semi-permanent residents. We stayed here for 2 weeks, and given its reasonable price and great location, we would stay here again. - hoppytoad

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
