Be sure to check out the Good Sam website for RV parks in and around Concord. Tradewinds RV Park looks interesting ... Just bring your umbrella.

But if you read the park rules, the tow vehicle must remain on site for the duration of your stay. How strange is that?

Very strange if you have to leave your tow vehicle, but the description of the location is fantastic! I have taken that Ferry Ride from Larkspur/Tiburon to the Ferry Bldg, and it is very cool. It drops you off near the ticket counter for the Alcatraz Tours. Sounds like a pretty good solution....

Where to stay near San Francisco

The MarinRV park in Marin county is more like a RV storage. Not a place I would want to hang around. But bicycle/pedestrian paths quickly get to nice places and the Larkspur ferry/Bus terminal that covers SF bay. Take the ferry to the SF ferry building. That drops you off near the bay bridge and then you have a nice walk along the San Francisco waterfront to fisherman's wharf where you can catch the Alcatraz tour boat. Best to buy your tickets in advance, can be booked a few weeks out.

Another option is Petaluma KOA. A much, much,much nicer place and maybe half the price ? From there It's a 45 minute drive to the Golden Gate Bridge or 25 minutes to the Larkspur Ferry ,Pacific ocean beaches and you are in wine country.

The video is the mouth of Corte Madera creek and the " Dirty Harry" bridge that shows MarinRV park along HWY 101, at 2:00- 2:12 then at 3:40 You can also see the Larkspur Ferry terminal briefly.

I just called them. It is OK to un-hook and sightsee. Just no storage and no truck campers on stilts (or whatever they are.)

I stayed there earlier this year with the motorhome rental. Kids running all over the place without paying attention to rules of the road. Double check your receipt against the campsite number they tell ya. They told me a different site from what was written on my receipt (and the incorrect number was on my parking pass and highlighted on their map, which is what I was looking at). When they asked me to move that night I told them no as it was their fault in telling me the wrong site. I ended up getting a 10% refund on my one night stay, on top of the 10% I got for being a KOA member, when I bitched about it the next morning to the manager.

It was a decent enough place, but it was just before they started running their shuttle service into SF, so I missed out on that, unfortunately. Touts itself as the largest KOA around or some such like that. I'd believe it. Huge place. Kind of cool seeing and hearing peacocks running around though.

I'd probably stay there again if I had a tow vehicle that I could use for exploring. And their shuttle service was working as I would not want to drive into SF.
