Fishing in some areas of the park with and without a fishing license. Two jettys are good to reach opening of bay. Be prepared for wind and dress in Layers. Live bate was the choice while one guy insisted on lures.

My grandchildren did camp there and loved it! Creative play is so important and they thrived... They also have a public park there which children love. There's plenty to do outside from the camp area.

Coyote Point in San Mateo, next to Airport. Great place for a walk, run, bike ride or if you enjoy watching the planes landing and taking off, perfect place!

Have always loved this place, had BBQ here with a group of friends. There are short trails in the park and also grassy area where you can play football or volleyball. For younger kids, you can take them to the park outside.

Loved the park. So peaceful. The trails are amazing. Beautiful views from the trails. Could easily spend a day here roaming the trails. A nice alternative to busy San Francisco.

I haven't seen them there, or anywhere in the bay much at all, come to think of it. I'm not sure what maritime rules are with those kinds of craft around shipping channels and "boat" traffic. There are kite surfers at... More
