A question about sleeping in a Van near San Francisco and outside the valley. Does anybody have some insight to safer places I could park the van in or near San Francisco? What about outside the Park near Yosemite Valley and/or Tuolumne? Any advice would help, Thanks!

I'm a little confused by your question. You ask as though San Francisco and Yosemite are right next to each other, when they are separated by a few hours of driving.

Frank, please note there are two questions. Thanks for any insight you may have.

in CA unless there are signs saying no overnight parking or private property its assumed to be a legit dirtbag van parking zone. But, if you mean safe as in wont get ripped off then you will have to use your street smarts, which by the sound of your question are a bit green. You'll be fine, just dont make a noise if the cops start banging on the van
