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

This is a great value if you are an Elks member. Other parks in the area charge outlandish prices. It is a parking lot setup but very well done with full hookups. Manager is very helpful. Sites 1-8 have a grassy area behind the rig and are easier to get into. Backing into sites 9 through 14 are a bit difficult but doable. Sites 15 and up are easier. Great location for seeing all that the area has to offer. Make sure to see downtown Petaluma and drive our D street to visit the Marin Cheese company out in the country. Plenty of parking for your tow vehicle in the parking lot. - Reddingscott

An Elks only park that has great website reservation system. Park is big rig friendly with full hookups on a paved parking lot. Will definitely return as area is quiet, convenient, clean and friendly, helpful host even though in an industrial area. - RJourney

This was an "any port in a storm" situation for us. It was a holiday weekend, Labor Day, so many of the parks are full and this was our only option. Because it was a holiday weekend, the lodge was not open. The lodge has minimal hours even when it is open.
The sites are far from level, we had to use all of our shoring boards and still only got it "sort of" level. Barely level enough to put out the slides. Our slides and canopy were almost touching our neighbors.' There was plenty of shady parking for the Jeep and the lodge is situated close to amenities such as grocery stores and gas stations. We'd stay here again if we were desperate but not otherwise. - Linda dlm

This park is closed to overnight stays. It is long term only. - Big Sur Ridgewalker

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

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

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

This was a small dirt lot in the middle of a very pretty fairgrounds. It looked like you would use this yard for auto salvage. It was ugly, fencing around the lot was ugly, and we felt like we were staying in a prison yard. It was so ugly: torn up grass, chopped up asphalt, weeds, no definition to the site spaces, ugly fencing, we left the next day. Wish we could show you the photo. No effort has been made to make this RV spot desirable for anybody. The opening to the lot was narrow, we barely made it through with our 40 foot motorhome. The lot was difficult to find in the fairgrounds itself. We would NOT stay here again. Move onto the next fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, just up the road, which has a very similar name, much better place to stay! - sparky59

Average facility as fairgrounds go. RV area is off to the side of the fairgrounds. There is gated access at night. Stock car races Sat night but ends around 10 - not a real issue. There is some traffic noise. There is an attendant in the area nights. Parking lot is mostly rock / gravel. They take credit card payments. We were the only RV in the park area. Would stay here again. - Workamper04
