14 Parks near Half Moon Bay, California
Sep 2016 - $75.00
We love this park and it is even better now with new friendlier management. This is the fifth year in a row we have camped here. We are planning on a month again next year. You just can't beat the location. It is adjacent to a walkway leading down to the beach and the Ritz Carlton so beautiful walks are easy and stress-free.
To top it off, Half Moon Bay downtown is a few minutes away with great restaurants and niche shops. - Bay Area Early retirees

The most notable positive about this campground is that it is within walking distance to the ocean and beach access. Also beautiful views of the golf course and ocean in the distance. Staffers were friendly. There are a number of live-in residents. The old lady across from us kept giving us the stink-eye. Site was very cramped, felt like we were on top of our neighbors on both sides. Odd sewer connection does not lock into place so be careful when dumping. Overall, seemed overpriced for what you get at the campground; however, the location is great. Also not many other choices in Half Moon Bay. - Urbanthesis

Beautiful spot in Half Moon Bay, by far the nicest one we have found in Half Moon Bay. Been many times, they raised their rates to the $84 in the last year :-( They a busy like many California RV parks near large populations (the bay area). They help guide every RV into its spot! WiFi costs extra $5/day :-(. But you can walk to the beach and the Ritz Carlson for an expensive drink on their lawn and look at the ocean! - DigitalRon

This campground has two great things going for it. It's right above the beach at Half Moon Bay and it's within a mile of the actual town of Half Moon Bay. Beyond that, there are only neutrals to negatives. Very few trees or shade, noise and bother from the day use area; lots of people with little understanding of campground behavior. We will stay here again, but as far from the day use end and the bathrooms as possible. - Bluestreak

They have put electricity into many of the sites. The interior sites are $50/night and the ones facing the beach are $65+ if you can get a reservation. This is a very popular campground and reservations are almost always required and need to be made many, many months in advance. The roads and camping pads are asphalt. The sites have adequate separation although there is little vegatation. It can be very windy here so what your awnings carefully. I wouldn't leave for the day with your awning out and expect to find it still attached to your RV when you get back. I speak from personal and unfortunate experience on this. We always try to stay at this State Beach at the end of our summer RV trip as we head back to Arizona. We have camped here many times and will definitely come again. - DennisA

This campground now how electricity in most sites. The back row does not have electricity. It's a nice campground with some sites having ocean views. Watch out for the gopher holes! - Jhiggins

WARNING: Do not stay here and spend your money elsewhere. The camp sites are gravel/woodchips and there is dust everywhere. The RV got very dirty quickly. We had panhandlers and homeless people from around town come to our spot demanding handouts. They also camp out in the bathrooms.The drunks that live in this park will scream at all hours of the night, throw up everywhere and will accost you as you take an evening walk. Beer bottles, broken glass, and dog poop is everywhere.There are scattered islands of shantytowns, broken cars and motorcycles that are constantly being worked on throughout the night. When they DO work they drive too fast and throw the rocks that make up their makeshift road all over your vehicles and RVs.It is nowhere near the actual beach.
Bed bugs are embedded in the laundry facility. Plan your trip accordingly outside and around this town. It's a tourist trap. - Outdoor explore

What a junk yard! We have stayed at the state park here and at another CG in the past, but could not get in. Had to stay somewhere for 2 nights so this was it. Never again. Though the staff were friendly, the park is a dust bowl and is full of permanent or semi-permanent construction workers. Nothing wrong with that if it is neat, but this place is crowded, we were packed in like sardines. Can't open windows due to campfires and smokers right under the window. For the price - not at all worth it. - Tiny Beast

The place is nothing to get excited about, it is pricey but its saving grace is the pub/restaurant next door. Seems like many of the sites are permanent residents so you get all the fencing, clutter around that goes with it. People across from us must have had 6-7 little dogs than ran around in the fence area enclosing the site and barked nonstop at everything. Place has potential if it gets a facelift. Dusty park with too many people living there. If you have a car coastal access is fine. - Karfae

No showers, a lot of noise because of the road next to the campground. Narrow sites.
On the positive side: whales!! - Barbary

Friendly, accommodating manager in a beautiful location. Spaces are close as in most beachfront parks but what a view! Beach with surfers to your right, harbor to your left and a nice walk/ bike path running right in front of the beachfront sites. Loved it! - Beth p

As others state the view is awesome! (We had a full ocean view site.) Water, beach, surf boarders, harbor, boats, birds all part of your view. Sites close, tight turns, but our 38er fit just fine even though we didn't think we'd make it at first. Enough space once set. Good power and hookups, but couldn't get a good wifi connection. Nice mellow beach area, we didn't fish, but lots of others were along the jetties. The flowers and landscaping are very pretty. No amentities at park, but food, music, drinks, supplies within 1 to 2 miles. As no reservations, we just took a chance and headed there on a Sunday and got lucky, do be prepared to be patient as you may have to wait as others get in or out of their spots. No problem, just be aware. Camp host very nice and helpful. We will go back, best view we've had at an RV park. - Duran

This is an odd little park that's more of an experiment by San Mateo County Parks & Recreation. There are four (4) sites marked off along the edge of a parking lot with a 20 amp pedestal and a water spigot. The dump station is at the Sheriff's Shooting Range about 1/2 mile away and it could be a hassle to get in close when they're training.
First, the positives. It's right on the bay as in, if you fall out of bed, you might drown! It's very well patrolled and transients are gone by 8 PM. There are 3 "pull-in" sites but it would be sketchy if the other sites are occupied. The 4th site is a "back-in." The shower & bathroom facilities are shared with other park users such as wind surfers, kayakers, and paddle boarders. They are closed and locked by about 7 PM and don't open again until 7 AM.
There are some negatives for such picturesque "campsites." The spaces are all roughly east-west orientation with the utilities on the south side. However, most people tend to pull in facing east which puts the water and electric cord on the side of the RV away from the pedestals, which, since there aren't any signs, one can park whichever way one desires but it creates some interesting issues.
There are "rules" posted at each site but they're more like guidelines. All in all, one should chill and adopt a laissez-faire attitude while staying at Coyote Point. After all, this is San Francisco.
SFO is right across the bay but the jet noise wasn't noticeable due to the prevailing off shore winds. Speaking of winds, in July, it was "rockin' & rollin'" the motorhome in the afternoons and evenings. - LM&TinView

All asphalt, $4 per day for Internet, pull-through, everything must be between the lines. After the slides were out, there was about 6 inches of clearance on the slide side and 1 inch on the step side. Low water pressure. The views and location to San Francisco are the sole reasons for staying here. From the cliffs, we could see whales breaching about 100 yards off shore. There are a few grass areas in the park and I do not recall any trees being there.
Simple to get in and out of San Francisco, expect traffic. - Rich the Diver

We just finished staying here for a week and a half in a 40 ft RV and tow SUV. The staff here is awesome, they go out of their way to help and are happy to do so. This is the best RV Park close to downtown San Fran, with easy transportation to the city.
I would have given it a 10 except the Park is shrinking each year. The ocean has claimed many sites and each time we come here more an more are gone. Some of the sites are not long enough for a 40 ft RV and a tow SUV, so you have to park the SUV elsewhere in the park.
If you are thinking of staying here, do it, before the sea claims the entire park. - JCat

This is a asphalt lot and very close together but, we were there to visit San Francisco and a friend. I am finding out in California every campground is very limited on space. Coming from the East coast where there is space between sites. Everything has to stay between the painted lines of your site. We had to disconnect the tow dolly and side it up under the Motorhome so the car could fit in our lines of our site.
Great views of the ocean. Everything worked well. The staff was very friendly and the laundry area was great.
They do have long term residents there but they put them all on left side of the park and really don't know they are here. - virginiagirl2015

Manager made me feel like I was putting him out. Old park with mostly perment residents. The restrooms and showers were very nice. Must be fairly new. The price is very high for what you get and what the park looks like. We would NOT stay here again. - JoyceG

Great location to visit San Francisco. The park is very basic is/was a mobile home park. The location compensates for difficulty in registering (office is often closed), and the crowded, concrete based environment. Overall, because of location very good experience and will come again when visiting SF. - Ray Wiley

We stayed here while in San Francisco and wouldn't stay here again. The park is mainly full timers in mobile homes. There was nothing to do and no Wi Fi. - melody105

We have stayed here a lot and will come here whenever in the area.
Consistent quality of service & facilities.
A LOT of permanent rigs, that frankly are pretty sh__y. Wish they would flush some of that out.
The "new" section is pretty nice, and back by the marsh/bay.
Wish the sites were more level. We always have trouble with this, even though that is now the "norm".
The Wi-Fi is VERY weak back in the "new" section. Wish that would improve.
Front office is always helpful & pleasant.
Even though they are expensive, they are VERY conveniently located, and are our go-to when we are in the Bay Area. - Janna

We stayed here for 10 days to visit with family and attend a college graduation. Hotels in the area are $200 a night and up, so even at $70 the value is good. The park is very clean, the newer spaces in the back are completely paved and concrete so don't expect any natural beauty, but it IS good if it rains and there isn't any loose gravel. We had a long pull-through for a 45' rig towing a Jeep and were able to park both with a bit of room to spare. Surprisingly quiet given it's proximity to 101. Regarding what some have written about odd sewer connection--it isn't odd. They built risers for venting each sewer connection so the vent access is on top of the cement "step"--but the actual sewer connection is nestled at the base of the riser at ground level. The utility connections were excellent. We did not use them, but there's a $25 key deposit for restroom. It would be good if they gave some kind of handout for the sewer explanation for those who are confused by the configuration, and also for the laundry rooms. We went to do laundry this morning and were informed by a resident that folks reserve the machines on a white board in the laundry room. It is not clear that this is an issue here, and there was nothing said at the office. - 3DogsGo

With so few RV Parks in the Bay Area, this place isn't bad. We stay here every time we are in the area. On the other hand, I really wish there were more choices. On the positive side, Redwood City is halfway in between SFO and San Jose so you have lots of things to do within a 30 minute drive, so the location is good. The park is by the freeway, but you camp so far away you don't hear a thing. The overnight campers are put in the back of the park, near the bay so you get some views. You park on concrete pads with great utilities and it's very clean. the laundry rooms are great, with newer machines. On the bad side, It's in Redwood city so it's far from everything (yes, it's location is a blessing and a curse). It's in a depressing, industrial location. The campsites are crammed together. The internet is poor. There are a lot of full timers, but they have new RV's and new cars, so it's not like you are surrounded by transients. - bendoregonrv

To start, for the last two hours we have been trying to get the WiFi to work. So, there's that.
Next, it is just a parking lot. Which, I wouldn't mind if it wasn't costing me $96.00 to sleep behind where they have torn down the football field and are now doing work to build something else. Don't even get me started on road noise.
It costs so much, we are basically paying to sleep here. I won't have enough to spare for a bus, cab, lyft, you name it. Unfortunately it is labor day weekend and we had to stop and this was it. So no San Francisco sight seeing for us.
If you can, avoid this park. It is not, in any way, worth over $30. Maybe they will realize this one day. - WanderPig34

This park is very close to downtown. We stayed 5 days and found it to be OK. Noise in the morning is very loud from construction on the old Candlestick Park. The park is in a rundown part of town and the approaching street is not great. Good laundry facilities although expensive. Showers are old and mouldy. There is a separate TV room with table tennis, tv and PC with printer for guests use. There is also a basic shop in the office that offers VERY basic needs. There is a shuttle bus to downtown that works out to be very expensive if used everyday. We used Uber, which was a lot cheaper.Security guards posted at gate at night was both reassuring but also worrying. I don't think we would stay here again, probably try another San Fran park. This park is expensive for what it is. - Liane63

The restrooms/showers are very clean. Convenient location with transit connections, bus to Chinatown, or rent a cab. You will not find others RV park in San Francisco. - motorcity

I stayed at this mobile home park with my 36' motorhome in 2009 for about 6 months. It is clean and well cared for, management on site are very nice people. However, the owners are very stiff in any dealings and do not bend under any circumstances. They will allow 1(one) pet: cat or dog under 30 pounds. If you have 2 cats or dogs and they don't even add up to 30 pounds together, even they are not allowed. People have had to get rid of their pets if they live here. They have rules for every little thing. They are big sticklers about even the smallest thing. If you are human and could very possibly make an error, I would not suggest you come to this park. Even on a per night basis, if you have more than one pet you are not allowed. It is an $18 charge for your credit check, they have an application that asks questions that are, quite frankly none of their business. Motorhomes are to be started at least once a week and even starting them monthly or longer for your required 10-20 minute period is not allowed. If the electricity fails and it is winter time: Do NOT start your generator. It doesn't matter that it's cold and you have no heat. They came over at 10pm and said I had to turn it off. What??? One is not allowed heat? Not a place to stay if you are a person that some how has faults or actually plans to live life! - justme2

This mobile home park was a disgrace. The owner did not allow very many things and the rent itself is over priced. The owner overcharges her patrons and refuses to let the owners sell their mobile homes. She changes the rules about every six months and a lot of the rules don't even make sense. I would also like to point out that the rules themselves are unfair. We will not be staying there again. I would not recommend this park to anyone unless they are very rich and very patient. - Rayvn
