Just get into an overnight paid parking lot downtown and spend the night there. We stayed safe and sound in a Sportsmobile one night down in the Tenderloin. The people at the lot were fine with it. We just asked them ahead of time and told 'em we wouldn't dump anything out of the van. Was a way better option than parking on the street or some sketchy spot under a freeway. Might also check hipcamp.

There's also an app/website called pavemint - like an airbnb for parking spaces.

I’ve van camped in South Park before. It’s mostly office space, if you show up late there shouldn’t be an issue. Pretty quiet too, it’s enclosed and surrounded by buildings so less traffic noise. Just read the regulations for street sweeping and such.

No.

They reason for the ban is the usual 'doing it for the kids' argument.

Apparently vaping is more appealing than smoking to tender throats and lungs, and, well, what kid doesn't like pulling the wool over adults' eye that vaping allows...mmmm, I'm being a surreptitious rebel.

PS
Advise against a high profile spot where GG Bridge people will roust you.

PS
The industrial parking spots are not as quiet as one might imagine. Might be calm-ish during the day, but night is another story. Hard to sleep well camping next to to the meth van but if the guy in the murder van gets to those van-lifers first and is satisfied for the night, you are probably ok. Enjoy the bay view in the morning and at sunset, you can see the projects on the hill where OJ grew up.

^^ That area looks waaaay too sketchy I wouldn't sleep in my car there. I've parked in big industrial parking lots for tech companies and large hotel lots on my way into the city (Daly City or Palo?). The main issue I've had is the 3-4am street cleaner that seems to beep constantly regardless if it's going in forward and reverse (plus the sound of of the sweeper doing it's thing), and park away from dumpsters in case the trash trucks stop by. Wake at 5am and I'm in or through the city and across the bridge before major traffic (usually).

My advice? Don't stay in SF. Park somewhere else overnight and drive in for city stuff.

Campsites are hard to come by on short notice, but there are plenty of places to park north of the bridge that are way mellower than SF.

Been long while but I believe 82 between 101 and halfmoon bay is a good one with man made lake in middle of drive.


There's a time to shit and a time for God
The last shit I took was pretty fooking' odd!

I am sure the people in the white murder van are nicer than the people in the two tone meth minivan.

Anyway, the park there is a good place to collect poisonous shellfish during low tide.
