Mediocre park with terrible management
$65 does not include cable or wifi. I picked it because it was close to the bart. I've been to more RV parks I can count. The office manager is hands down the rudest and least customer service oriented individual I have ever come across. I made a reservation for 3 nights, followed the instructions per the email, and on arrival at 5:30pm waited 30 minutes for a park staffer to come check me in. (Into an empty row, for overnighters). He claimed no one informed him about my reservation. I mentioned I might want to stay longer than 3 nights, and he suggested I pay for the one night with a credit card, then talk to the office the next day. I had no orientation, and signed no paperwork.
The office opens at 9am. I had early meetings, and a schedule that went haywire, so my plan was to call the office in the afternoon and settle the bill. Before I could do that I received a hostel voice message. I returned his call and proceeded to apologize, as he interrupted me with "Your problems are not my problem." He says they will not take my credit card over the phone, and if I don't pay by 4pm in person, my RV would be ordered to be towed. I explained I had to leave my meetings early and take public trans to get there, and the fastest would be 5pm. (Closing time) He refused to budge.
I arrived at 4:45 and got the hell out of there. (Took a photo of the closed office.)
Some Improvements, A lot of worsening
We first stayed here about 2 years ago, attracted to the location and ease of getting around the Bay Area from this park - due to its proximity to BART. When we returned for a longer stay in the Bay Area again, it was our top choice.
Apparently, when you stay here for a month or shorter, you're charged their short term rates. So the monthly rate was $150 more than if we paid last time for our longer stay . However, it was inclusive of electricity (no way we use that much). Also, the sites for big rigs and the tiny sites for rigs like ours - all pay the same rate. Kinda frustrating. The short term sites are along the main road through the park - easy to get in and out of, but a lot of traffic constantly going right by your door, which also lessens your sense of privacy. There are multiple speed bumps, which mean you're constantly hearing trucks and cars slowing down, rattling as they go over and then speeding up.
The park management told us they had been given a blank check from the owner to make improvements. There was new landscaping and asphalt since we were last here - which made the park look slightly better. They are apparently close to breaking ground on constructing a new bath house too.
Which they dearly need. The main bath house that short term stay tenants utilizes is beyond its last leg. When we arrived, there were only two working showers in the lady's room. Within a week, one of them had broken (the showerhead only dribbled). By the time we left 3 weeks later - it still hadn't been fixed. 1 shower for everyone is unacceptable. (Sure, if you have a full size bath in your rig, you probably don't need it. But for us, part of why we pay for parking is for use of a 'real' shower - as otherwise, we could just boondock and dump occasionally.)
This park is still a great location. And if they paid any attention to the existing facilities and/or actually build the new bathhouse - it'll again regain our higher rating. But for now, afraid we have to downgrade it.
We're younger full time RVers, and needed to be accessible to downtown San Francisco. We found this park and were thrilled that it's just a couple blocks from a BART station. We were pleasantly surprised with how comfortable it was to stay here for a few months. Decent food nearby (the Salvadorian place across the street is great!), shopping (Trader Joe's within walkin distance!) and accessible to all areas of the Bay Area.
The park is a eclectic mix of full time residents in single wide trailers, other folks in RVs working in the area on contract and some overnighters. The park is older, sparse on amenities - but functional and in a safe feeling area of town.
We stayed in the front area with other trailers/motorhomes (some newer, some older), and everyone was super friendly and trustworthy. The staff was awesome and friendly. This turned out to be a wonderful, and affordable, place to set up in as a base of operations while we needed to be in the area. We would not hesitate to return if we were wanting to stay long term in the area again.
We paid a monthly rate of $625 plus electricity, with putting up a deposit.
