Overnight stop in or near San Felipe

We usually stay at Pete's camp, but dont relish hauling my dually , full size truck camper and 18ft boat back up Pete's cobblestone driveway from the beach.
Any other safe overnight parking areas (convoy of my rig,a pickup and a Cherokee)...just an overnight, arrival around 2200 then onward to Gonzaga at dawn!
