Travelling with a campervan also means enjoying freedom and unlimited possibilities. And where better to feel this freedom than in the United States of America? Perhaps nowhere, we at campstar believe, which is why we make it possible for our customers to have an adventure with a campervan in the USA. This also applies to San Francisco, where we rent campers to explore the impressive city in a bay on the Pacific Ocean and also the surrounding area.
San Francisco is one of the most exciting cities in the world, which offers many sights that are unique in the world. It's no wonder that the city with around 870,000 inhabitants is an absolute dream destination for tourists all over the world - this also applies to many adventurous Germans.
Probably the most famous sight of the hilly city in northern California is also known around the globe: The legendary Golden Gate Bridge, which is one of the most impressive structures of all. Driving over it in a campervan is an experience you will never forget. The feeling of freedom resonates with you. The adjacent Golden Gate Park is also a "must see".
In addition to the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco is synonymous with year-round sunshine, Victorian houses, extraordinary trams and an attitude to life that is representative of California. Anyone who travels to San Francisco and the surrounding areas of the city in a campervan will quickly understand why it is the so-called "Sunshine State".
Another breathtaking sight in San Francisco is the Transamerica Pyramid, which stands in the financial district. From the city's most famous skyscraper, you can also see Alcatraz - the island located in the bay that is infamous for its former prison. The prison island can be reached by ferry, a thrilling and immersive experience.
One of the most beautiful corners in the city is definitely Fisherman's Wharf, where the centre of the fishing trade is located. Chinatown, Coit Tower, Union Square and the twin peaks Twin Peaks are also among the sights. From the latter you can see the whole city - an almost magical place.
Since you are flexible and independent with a campervan, some of the sights around San Francisco are also easy to reach. A trip to Yosemite National Park, which is about a four-hour drive from the metropolis, is definitely worthwhile. The Muir Woods National Monument can also be reached via a beautiful panoramic road. The 17-Mile Drive, a road with a breathtaking view directly along the coast, is highly recommended for campervans.
There are not many options for travelling from Germany. The only option in most cases is by plane. In order to still be mobile and free in San Francisco, it is worth switching directly to a camper. This is exactly the option we offer tourists with our camper van rental around San Francisco.
A big plus: You can rent a campervan from us in one place and return it to another in the USA. We don't charge a fee for this, so you can embark on the trail of the American dream in a relaxed and cost-effective way.
There are numerous campgrounds in and around San Francisco, which - as is usual in America - are very spacious. One of the best addresses is the Rob Hill Campground, which is located directly on the coast and in the immediate vicinity of the city centre. An exceptional location for a campground. Camp Ida Smith is somewhat smaller, but also in a good location for exploring the city and its surroundings. Here you will usually also find a little more peace and quiet.
You will find even more peace and quiet at the San Francisco RV Resort, a campsite that is located directly on a beautiful sandy beach, but also has a pool or two. It is not without reason that this is one of the most popular campsites around San Francisco. The same applies to Kirby Cove Campground, which is a little further away from the city and nestles in a picturesque coastal setting. A good home base for trips to San Francisco and the surrounding area in the "Sunshine State".
In downtown San Francisco, there are also a few campgrounds where you can park your campervan during the day and explore on foot or with the legendary Cabel Cars, the trams.
As befits the "Sunshine State", San Francisco has very few rainy days per year. Nevertheless, the humidity is very high, which also leads to the characteristic fog that covers the city on many days.
The geographical location directly on San Francisco Bay ensures that the climate is mild all year round. Daytime temperatures do not usually rise above 25 degrees, but they rarely drop below 15 degrees even in the winter months. The temperature of the Pacific Ocean ranges between 10 and 18 degrees throughout the year, and the water never gets colder.
June and October are considered the best months for a trip to San Francisco, but the mild climate makes the region very attractive all year round. So you can also escape the German winter and spend mild weeks and months in San Francisco with a campervan.
The special location on the bay makes the traffic situation in San Francisco very interesting. The city has eight bridges that you can use with a campervan to get in and out of the city.
It is important to know that there is a toll for some of the bridges. This is also the case for the Golden Gate Bridge - in any case, if you are travelling into the city. If you are driving out of San Francisco, the tolls are free. Some highways in the rest of California also have tolls. It is worth registering on the internet beforehand, as cash payment is not possible everywhere.
