We spent 3 days in the San Francisco area hitting several key landmarks... Yes we would have loved to stay much longer since it is one of our favorite cities to visit but we are on our way to Alaska and just hitting some areas on the way. We will be out here again next summer and spend a couple of weeks in this wonderful town. We parked our rigs at the ELKS lodge for the 3 nights in Fremont which is about 30 minutes from San Francisco. We had E/W but no sewer at the Elks Club.
Candlestick Park and the Palace of Fine Arts
San Francisco Electric Cars and the Trolley
Then we left San Francisco, traveled up Hwy 101 about 180 miles which a beautiful drive through wine country... We stayed at a campground called Creekside RV Resort in Willits, Ca. Bad choice but you never know! DO NOT STAY HERE ever if you have a BIG rig!!! It was off of Hwy 101 and hard to get into with a narrow bridge at the entrance. (FIRST CLUE) Then we were greeted by the manager who was a little cocky to put it mildly... "Move your coaches so our regulars can get by" but there was no place to move 2 forty foot rigs with cars in tow... or even turn around (SECOND CLUE) Then he told us we would have to unhitch even if we wanted to turn around... (YIKES) might as well stay if we have to unhitch. So finally we found 2 back in sites (they said they had pull troughs for us) that would fit us and set up... thick woods and a lot of REGULARS in travel trailers from the 60's... What a junky park but we all agreed it that it is only for one night. So after a night of restless sleep because the regulars were up all night BBQin around midnight we headed out carefully... pulling back on to Hwy 101 was just as dangerous as pulling in. OH and even with a Passport America discount this dump was still 21 dollars a night!
