7 things to know before you camp at the new campsites at Candlstick. Possibly some things were left out. However, flush toilets are mentioned. Isn't this positive?

Then, on the water in OP conditions, you will feel like you are the pebble in a loaded slingshot and somebody is pulling back, back, back, abo ...
