We traveled down from Canada and stayed here for 3 nights, we had no reservation and called from the road and were able to get one of the last economy tent spots (which has no fire pit but has a water tap and picnic table) the spot was large enough for our car and tent and was decent value for $40. We decided to extend our stay 2 more night because we were very impressed with the family friendly atmosphere and safety of the campground, as well the staff were amazing to us and very accommodating.
**Beware that this campground is very family friendly, so there are kids running around and can be noisy if you are near the playgrounds or pool area**
We spent all 3 of our days in San Francisco and left our luggage, food as well as bedding in our tent and put a lock on the tent just incase. Had nothing go missing and nothing was damaged or tampered with.
We did notice that there was a barn yard kind of smell some mornings/days but it was not unbearable like other reviews state, if you cant handle a little smell or dirt while camping you shouldn't be camping, and the bathrooms and facilities were as clean if not cleaner then any other camping site i've stayed at, to be honest i've seen disgusting and these are far far from that.
Plus they have laundry facilities and you don't have to pay for the showers, which is rare (at least in Canada).
Other benefits were they have a store with a pretty good selection of supplies, petting zoo as well as a pool and hot tub, which while we were there they had a team of facility workers thoroughly cleaning it every morning which was nice to see.
I will definitely be recommending this location to friends and family doing road trips in and around San Francisco!
