“Will return”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2009

This is as others described a parking lot with painted lines between the sites, and the sites are small, given that it is the only park in San Francisco where you will not have to drive for an hour and pay the bridge tolls. The 28 day rate is one of the cheapest in the bay area at $960. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are well maintained, and if you use a shower closest to the door they have plenty of water pressure. We made reservations 6 months in advance to ensure that we would have a space for our awning and screen room, and the staff lived up to their promise that we would have the room.

The neighborhood is an inner-city area, but my wife and I used the public transportation, walking to the bus stop one block away, and we never had a problem, just be aware of your surroundings. We did have some items stolen from our vehicle at Treasure Island, a long way from the park. I would not suggest being on third street late at night. As far as the review of their kids being asked where they were from, this is not gang talk, but regular conversation. As far as people should never see this part of San Francisco, if you want a true feeling of a city, you should see all parts of it, not just the tourist areas.

The wifi only works around the office and there is no cable, which was not a problem with a satellite dish. It would help if they added some access points through the park to give all sites wifi, this is not expensive and would be a great benefit to the guests.

The biggest complaint that we had are the other people that were staying in the park. Many people are using the tent area for a bathroom for their dogs, which is against the park policy, who wants to put their tent down on top of dog urine. Other people were allowing their children to run through the park on skateboards and unsupervised just waiting for an accident, as well as disturbing other peoples peace and quiet, this again is supposed to be against the park rules, but does not seem to be enforced. There was a group from France who were the most inconsiderate group, yelling and laughing right until the 11 p.m. quiet time. This was the only time we had an issue with the park staff, after the second night of listening to this, we asked the security guard if he would talk to them, this was at 10:30 at night, and he stated he would not until 11:00 p.m. When it is supposed to be quiet time. We were raised in Idaho and taught when camping or in an RV you have consideration for your neighbors, I wish others had been taught this, as it would make a better experience for everyone in the park.

We would stay here again, especially if the rules start being enforced. We stayed here in a motorhome.
