This is a nice quiet campground with an easy hike to the beach (trestles). The sites are well spaced and have nice vegitation separating them to give good privacy. The cell service is very spotty with all providers except for AT&T.

But the grounds are well-maintained, and if you can be here when it's not fully packed, it's a nice peaceful environment. No Verizon service. Water hookup in pitch and electr... more

“This was our very first night ever camping in our newly restored Airstream trailer - so we were looking for something "easy" to test the systems, etc, and close to home. The campground delivered exactly what we wanted. ”

Overall Rating

We rode into San Mateo with absolutely ZERO experience camping, and were very grateful for all it provided. However, if we had more experience camping, we are not sure we would have liked it much. In fact, the others we talked to seemed to only be there b/c it was their second choice (this was on the cusp of what was going to be a very... more
