Favorite car camping within a two-hour drive of SF?

We want to car camp for one or two nights and are looking for
a place that has showers and possibly a cafe on-site.

Big Basin is great. If you want sun, there's also Henry Coe State Park, and there's Hunter Liggett--which is an amazing place to see wildflowers in the spring. I just park on the side of the road, throw my bag out on the bulbous rocks and gaze up at the stars. You'll hear the occasional coyote.

Few people know this (shhh!), but there is actually car camping in San Francisco in the Presidio near the beach. It's called Rob-Hill. It may only be group camping now, not sure about that.

Also, there is car camping on Mt Tamalpais. Beautiful and not many people know about it.
