Herb and Lolo camping at PacificaHerb and Lolo camping at PacificaThis was actually our third time this trip that we camped in Pacifica. We were flying back home to New Jersey soon and had to get back to the Petaluma KOA to prep and store the motorhome, but we figured we could squeeze one more quick visit with Andrew and Celeste en route. This campground really is extremely convenient for getting in and out of San Francisco.

No rock climbing this time. They didn’t know we would be coming by, so they had climbed pretty hard the day before and needed a day off. Instead we just hung out at their apartment for awhile, enjoying the festiveness of their Charlie Brown Christmas tree – so, so cute. Even a two-foot deformed tree costs over $20 in San Francisco.

We walked to dinner at Gespare’s, an Italian restaurant over on Geary Street. It’s so great that they have such a variety of options for dining out, all within walking distance.

Well, it was goodbye for now. The next time we would see Andrew and Tommy would be when they came home for Christmas. I wasn’t sure when we would see Celeste next, as she would be spending Christmas with her family in Vancouver.

Always tough to part, but easier knowing that it wouldn’t be too long.


The San Francisco RV Resort is located in the town of Pacifica, 15 miles south of Golden Gate Bridge. Besides being the closest RV camping to San Francisco, it is also one of the best RV parks in the Bay Area. Situated atop a 60-foot bluff, it is the only campground in the Bay area to offer oceanfront sites and daily dramatic sunsets.

There are 162 sites on paved, level asphalt. All sites, except the ocean sites, have full hookups and cable TV. Ocean sites have no hookups, but all campsites have free WiFi. Other amenities include a heated pool and spa, beach access, and a nearby fishing pier.

The sites range in price from $61 per night for an ocean, non hookup site, to $69 for full hookup. The campground is open all year round.
