“Full hookup camping in the forested hills above Oakland”

Reviewed Mar 11, 2018

Overall Rating

Not often do we find full-hookup camping in such a nice setting and with excellent spacing. For this alone does this campground deserve 4 stars. Great trails in the park, and fairly close access to Redwoods park and the city makes this a good place for a week or just a weekend. During the week it was exceptionally quiet, and it never f... more

“Nice setting, watch the fees and curfew.”

Reviewed May 07, 2016

Overall Rating

Most everything has been said below, but I can add to make sure you're aware of the fees. We came on a Tuesday and had no problem getting a spot as the park was almost empty. We chose a dry camping spot to save money ($10 cheaper) and use our solar, but had to pay an additional $8/a night for the car (probably because we have a motorho... more

“Beautiful but poorly managed. ”

Reviewed Apr 25, 2016

Overall Rating

If this park had a self pay kiosk it would be one of our top ten best campgrounds. But because it is overstaffed with extremely unhelpful employees it is on our top 10 worst campgrounds. The online reservations are extremely complicated and are not up to date at the check in office. Because of reservation mistakes they had us jumping f... more

“Beautiful, some tight spaces, close to the city but a little slow to get into/out of”

Reviewed Apr 25, 2016

Overall Rating

As others have said, this park is the most beautiful place to stay if you need to have access to the Bay Area. It's a bit time consuming to get into/out of, and many of the sites are a bit tight (at least for a 25' trailer). They don't have many hookup sites. We dry camped for a few days. Allstays says they have 12 hookup sites. I s... more

“Nice regional park with relatively close proximity to San Francisco”

Reviewed Mar 05, 2016

Overall Rating

A nice park with located atop the rolling Oakland hillside, with decent access to San Francisco. Accessing from the East Bay is pretty easy and would serve as an convenient base, however access to Peninsula and/or coast is quite far and would a huge hassle on any regularity. RV campers have choice between full hook-up or primitive ... more

I'd agree with everything the other reviewers have noted, except for the connectivity via Verizon. It seems to vary quite a bit by site location. In some places we had calls dropping frequently, and from site #5 data connections were extremely poor, often falling back to 1x with low speeds, even with a rooftop antenna and Wilson boost... more

“An oasis in Oakland. Fabulous even in the rain. ”

Reviewed Jan 19, 2016

Overall Rating

This is definitely a destination park even though we only used it to visit friends in Oakland. As everyone else has said, the 10pm curfew wouldn't be so bad if the gate wasn't about two miles from the campground. There are 12 sites with full hookups. Our site 8 was paved and level. Very nice. The bathrooms are kinda different. Partiall... more

“Great campground except for the curfew”

Reviewed Nov 12, 2015

Overall Rating

If you're coming from the north, it's a long and windy drive to the park entrance. It's much quicker from Castro Valley. This campground is beautiful. Sites are far apart and surrounded by eucalyptus trees. We regularly saw a coyote and turkeys. The gates close at 10p which really puts a damper on going out. The drive to the Cast... more

“Great place, don't stay out late.”

Reviewed Dec 13, 2014

Overall Rating

We really love this place. We are used to roughly two kinds of campgrounds: those having a great nature feel to them, but no hookups, and those that have full hookups but look more like a giant parking lot. This campground has a number of sites with full hookups and it is very lush and green and well laid out. The sites are far enough... more

This campground is located in the East Bay of the San Francisco Area , you need to take a bit of a windy tortuous road from Castro Valley or Oakland. If you are in the area and interested in spending time in San Francisco the excellent BART light rail system has a station 15 minutes from the campground. This is by far the best way to g... more
