Does anyone ever camp in or near San Francisco and would tell us of any places with full hook-ups?

Thanks,

The only time we camped close to SF was a time one of us needed to fly out of SFO for a couple days and we stayed here in Pacifica: San Francisco RV Resort - RESORT

It's got full hookups, and if you have a rear dinette, backing into to one of the spots on the bluff gets you a great view. But it's really just a tightly packed parking lot. Convenient, but a parking lot. With a nice view.

Love the view, but would hate the parking lot...

Hands down, Patrick's Point State Park in Trinidad (just north of Eureka)— in terms of all of Northern CA (no hookups).

Close to SF: Yep, the place in Pacifica has beautiful views… and a lot of cement. There are precious few places around SF that have full hookups. The best bet, as far as I'm concerned, is Olema Ranch in Olema — right next to Point Reyes station. There are actually trees and grass there, which is more than you can say about any of the other places with hookups. It's about a 45 minute drive from SF. Anthony Chabot State Park in the Oakland hills has water and electric and is pretty. But you can hear BART (the public transit train) from there, and it's a very long drive just to get to the campground.

Patrick's Point was one of our favorite stops last summer! Definitely going to return there.

Doran is a great place to camp but it can be hit or miss.. Usually full this time of year on weekends and you can wing it during the week. The best sites are all the way at the end of the peninsula as you are closer to the opening of the bay but all the sites nearly offer ocean or tidal bay views.. Oh and it can get windy...

Places to Camp in Northern CA

We bought out Airstream last February and during 2011 camped 17 times. Most were weekends less than couple hundred miles of Sunnyvale where we live. Here are some of our favorites.

Near you. Calaveras Big Trees near Arnold, Spectacular sequoias, good roads. Yosemite Valley, use the Arch Rock entrance to avoid nosebleeds coming thru the high country. Upper Pines open all year, no hookups.
Three-day weekend Destinations: Casini Ranch, private w/ full hookups available, on the Russian River near Jenner. Salt Point State Park 16 mi north of Jenner on Hwy 1. Pomo RV Park, private, a few miles south of Fort Bragg on Hwy 1. Close to Mendocino, Very nice, clean, full hookups. Pinnacles Nat Monument, south of Holister, partial hookups, real condors flying around and lots of trails. Big Sur State Park, off season you can actually get reservations. Coastal scenery nearby is breathtaking. Twenty five miles further south on Hwy 1 is the ultimate coastal gem, Kirk Creek. It can be a white knuckle trip getting there but worth it. See my avatar, the pic was taken there. Half Moon Bay State Park. On the SF Peninsula, within sight of Mavericks. Flat, miles of trails, lots of sandy beaches, no hookups.
One week trip: Lassen NP, Manzanita Lake. Hat Creek 30 or so miles north, couple private camp grounds that are pretty nice. Burney Falls State Park. No hookups, but one of the most beautiful waterfalls we've ever seen in CA. Worth a visit.

Enjoy!

I have not seen anything posted yet, but the West Coast AS gang usually gets together at Casini Ranch in April for a killer weekend. Keep an eye on the events listings to see what Big Dan posts for a date and then book a site quickly: we fill up fast.

Here's a link to the info on Casini Ranch in April, 2012. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f288...2-a-83877.html

I called Casini this morning, their reservation system is down until early next week and they're not taking any reservations until it's back up.

We love going up to Lake Berryessa .. they've ripped out all the facilities up there with the changeover to BLM but they are slowly putting them back in. Right now it's dry camping but the lake is fabulous and there's a boat launch where we camp at Berryessa Shores - they have huge spaces (you could put two trailers and vehicles easily in one of the spaces) with fire pits and picnic tables and there are porta potties and they keep the dumpsters empty... we just bring generators and it's great! I like that it's in the forest and you have some privacy from other campers.
