Marin RV Park
Reviewed October 29, 2013

This park will give you access to San Francisco via the ferry or bus routes as you are ten minutes from the ferry and less to the bus stop. Sites are small and all gravel. Roads are paved. TV channels are minimal and WIFI is terrible but at least they tell you that at check in. Staff is very helpful with information about sightseeing and transportation. They have a small pool but there is nothing for kids.

Ideal location which is ten minutes from the ferry. Staff are extremely helpful and gave us lots of information. Everthing was very clean. Not a green paradise but an ideal location. The swimming pool was a bonus but hard to use because there seemed to others from outside the park which used it as well.

Room Tip: Anywhere in the park is good and the permanent rvs seemed to be nearest the road. We didn't fin...

We stayed here in our camper van due to the location and proximity to the ferry to getting into the city. The staff were very welcoming, and full of helpful information. It is just a big car park but we were out sight seeing for the day so just a place to sleep. The bathrooms were clean, laundry facilities were clean and working.
Ferry is a short walk away and just under an hour on the ferry into the city. I'd stay again if travelling through.

Clean and well looked after and only a 10 minute walk to ferry. Easy drive to Sausalito and the Golden Gate Bridge. Would recommend it mainly due to the location. Front desk gave out useful information about getting around San Francisco, map and ferry schedule and didn't mind us coming in and asking questions . Did not use the pool but saw families enjoying it.

I can't add much more than what the other reviewers have already said. This RV park is super convenient for visiting San Francisco if you are in an RV. The place really isn't much more than a parking lot with full hook ups but if you're in town to visit SF, then what more do you need? The bathrooms were spotless and the front desk help was very friendly and gave great information on getting into and around SF. They also had a heated pool, which is nice for the kids. Highly recommend for visiting SF in an RV.

I loved the location of this park. Ok it's not a "green" park, basically a gravelled parking lot, but this was more than compensated for by the service, cleanliness and location. I was greeted by a very friendly and helpful lady called Marta who gave me lots of useful information about getting to the city, map, ferry and bus guides, etc. Washroom facilities were clean, warm good showers. Full hookups plus cable are available. The park is clean and well maintained. There is a small pool but this was being serviced during my stay so I never used it. A big bonus is the Park is only about 10 minutes walk to Larkspur Ferry which does regular daily trips to San Francisco Ferry port (30 mins sailing time, really nice views of all the bay including Golden Gate and Bay Bridges) and from there you can easily get to all the local tourist attractions. I'd recommend buying a Clipper card at the ferry station for 3 bucks as you get discounted travel on the ferry and it can be used on the bus routes, so if you are doing lots of trips it's worth it. If you are too late for the last ferry back (which leaves approx 9.40pm on weekdays, 9.20pm at weekends), you can catch the 80 or 70 bus at various stops in the city which will take you across Golden Gate Bridge back to Lucky Drive in Larkspur (approx hour trip back by bus). Locally to the RV Park there is a Trader Joe's 5 minutes in one direction and Larkspur Circus in the other which has various eateries, Farmers Market on Saturdays and a 24 Hr Fitness (which I found really handy!). The RV park has laundry facilities and the office has lots of maps and leaflets about touristy things to do. As for being next to Highway 1, I barely heard the traffic at night once inside my RV and wasn't there much of the time anyway! I would definitely go back to this RV Park as it's extremely conveniently located, good value when you think you're so close to the city, with pleasant and accommodating staff. A great home base for exploring all the San Francisco has to offer.

This is a great basic park. It does have a pool and laundry. The showers are older, but very clean. The staff is great...very friendly and helpful. Yes, the park is basically a parking lot with water/ power and sewer, but it backs up to a refuge with short walks to the ferry/buses and TJ's. Land values average $475 per sq. ft. RV parks with space for trees and grass are a couple hours from the city.
