As a plus, you'll be going clockwise around the S.F. bay, so you'll likely avoid bridge tolls. ( else, you pay for those extra axles you're towing!).

We are planning for tour of Alcatraz and wondering if there is special parking for RV or maybe drop the trailer to a campground safe near by campground.
Just wondering what is the best solution

Hi Caude, San Francisco is a challenge for RVs and Trailers. Real estate is so expensive, there's always a more lucrative use for the land. There used to be an 'All Asphalt' RV park in SF, but I think it is now gone. Candlestick RV Park (800)888-2267, is just south of downtown and might be your closest bet.
There are state parks in 10-15 mile range that allow camping. Just north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County, is Novato RV Park (full hook-ups) 1 800-733-6787.
Just south of SF is The town of Pacifica that offers San Francisco RV Resort (650) 355-7093.

Hope this helps. Others may know more, but this is my best advice.

I grew up in San Francisco and that is one place I wouldn't want to take a trailer----especially if you don't know your way around due to the steep hills, narrow streets and sometimes no outlets. It is even difficult to find a place to park a vehicle without a trailer due to the limited parking space. I would recommend staying outside the city and drive in.

thanks for the advice. I'll make a note of it. Livermore is not too far away from their location in Concord.

Hi Mary,

Your family may also suggest you take BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) with one transfer. There is a station in Livermore and one in Concord so you will need transportation to/from the stations, unfortunately.

The rain in the Pacific Northwest is crazy!

Mary, The Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, Ca. Is nothing to write home about, but it is neat and clean and offers full hook-ups. It is centrally located to the East Bay via the 580/680 and Hwy 24. You're 10 minutes away from The Livermore Valley Wine Country and dozens of wineries and restaurants. We live about 20 minutes away and spend a lot of time in Pleasanton and Livermore.

Our son and his family live in Pleasant Hill and they like this place for quick weekend fishing trips Snug Harbor waterfront RV sites
Not sure if it is close enough to help. I would like to know if you find something you like closer. We would like to visit with our ESCAPE when we pick it up!

This current stormy weather system is one for the record books. It's rare we get blasted for so many days in a row.
