Clean restroom but could use a little updating. Courteous host. No showers or laundry facilities but great view and good price. San Francisco prices (25 ml away) were a lot more. Close to restaurants and directly on beach. All hookups available and close to highway so easy access. - Susan D98

If you are coming here expecting anything other than a fantastic view, you will be very disappointed. This is basically a parking lot with. No other services available in the park. They say they have cable and Wi-Fi. The cable shuts down several times a day and you have to restart it. The Wi-Fi is hard to use. The town of half-moon bay is very satisfactory. The only laundry facilities are in half-moon bay and they are only available Monday through Friday from 8 to 5. - Sarshs1mom

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

This was a nice park primarily for the location. Beach access was close by and a nice walk to the Ritz was through the golf course. Priced kind of high for what the campground offers which was a campsite. Site are tight but we had one that gave mire grass space for sitting. Cement pads are in tough shape and parking for tow vehicles is really tight. All in all we would probably stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

We loved this RV Park, especially after seeing the other options in Half Moon Bay. This one is located away from the main highway so there is no traffic noise, and we could see the Pacific Ocean from our site. Also, lots of trees around the property. We loved that the Coastal Trail starts literally right outside of the park, so it was great to be able to bike and walk so easily on the trail, and down the beach. All the staff we met were very friendly, and helpful. My only complaints are that the sites are a bit tight, it made it hard for people to back in and get out. They don't recycle. Finally, the trash was picked up at 4:30 in the morning, so were awakened to the sound of the truck backing up and then the noise of the trash falling in. Seems like they could request a later pick up. - WHR NXT

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

This is a very popular campground in the SF Bay Area, so booking at the very moment the booking window opens is key! We were in a site without hook-ups, which was just fine for us for the weekend as you rarely need AC/heat on the coast and we don't mind bringing along a generator if need be. The campsites appeared to be well-maintained, but the bathrooms could have been cleaner and need a refreshing. There are lots of great attractions nearby, some within walking distance, and there is a great walking/bike trail that goes right by the campground. It can get EXTREMELY windy here so we appreciated that our site was oriented towards the ocean so that the wind wasn't broadsiding us. Definitely don't leave your awning unattended here. We will be back! - MissCampsALot

As others have said this is basically a parking lot with maybe 10 feet of dead grass between the paved spaces, right next to the beach parking for day use, right at the edge of the little drop off down to the beach. Most sites have electric, the back row does not, so you may hear a generator running, it wasn't too bad when I was there. The park does have wifi which like all campgrounds I have been in can be nearly unusable when too many try to use it at once, but I was able to get online. Good Verizon phone signal and very fast LTE data. Restrooms and showers were in good shape and clean. People love this park and it does fill up nearly every night. Was full early during the week in the middle of October when I was there, but I was able to get in without a reservation around mid-day. Note that in the tent sites you are not allowed to sleep in your vehicle. I stayed one night in the middle for $50 and a second night in the back with no electric which was $35. I was here because it is reasonably near the airport. - Wandering Dave

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

We stayed here because none of the other parks had 3 consecutive nights available. Our first time in the area. Sites are large and level and gravel. No shade. Can get windy here so mind your awning! Pub-style restaurant adjacent to park. We didn't eat there. Half mile walk to beach. Lots of permanent or long-term residents but surprisingly quiet. Park is next door to a warehouse of some kind so we could hear their PA system. Spots farther away may not. Bathrooms/showers were individual units each with a toilet, shower, sink, hooks for clothes and towels and a small table. Really nice! Large laundry room that also housed bathroom/shower stalls. These were a bit smaller with no tables. Each site had a small plastic table with chairs and fire pit. Firewood is sold at the general store/registration for $10 a bushel. - Linda and Terry

DUST - fine powdery dust ends up everywhere in your RV. Site was very unloved (front tires were 4 inches off the ground ) horrible place. Sewer hook up is 30 feet from average RV outlet. - Unbiased
Aug 2016 - $85.00
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

Previous review I found accurate and helpful. I stayed here one night in late October and can add a few observations. The closing time of the park varies with the season, when I was there it was 5:00. The restrooms with the showers were locked at 4PM when I checked them out. I flagged down one of the workers who agreed to unlock them for me, but they said they would like to lock them by 5PM as they were leaving then. They told me they expected the RV's to be self contained and did not expect them to be using the restrooms. Showers worked good and were hot, but they are in a building with walls but no roof, so are basically outdoors as far as air temperature. Plane noise was plenty loud when I was there, but it didn't bother me, especially as I was there because of the closeness to the airport. Also you will have some distant highway and train noise but not too bad. There are not really typical campground spaces here, just at the back edge of an asphalt parking lot there are numbered picnic tables and utilities. The old lines for regular parking are still there, with no marking borders between 'campsites'. I think you will want to be here for the location, and with that will come noise and people. While the main gate on the road is closed in the evening the public can and does walk into the park after it is officially closed. All the staff in the park were very friendly and helpful and I would stay here again if I needed to be in the area. My cost was $45 plus a $7 reservation fee. - Wandering Dave

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. - LMandTinView

Pricy for what you get, but being close to San Francisco and to the ocean cost a lot. Our site was Ok but we were crowded by big rigs on both sides.
Going to San Francisco in our toad took a long time, as traffic was horrible every time we went. The weather was sunny but the wind was howling.
Interestedly we stayed at that campground in 2007 and we were able to park right on the cliff's edge with a fantastic unobstructed view of the Pacific ocean. This year, all these spots are gone, the ocean has eroded the cliffs so much that most of them are gone...sad.
We will not go back to this campground. - Two Dogs and an RV

At first sight, this looks like little more than a parking lot, with units packed tightly together. But this is San Francisco. Homes are packed just as tightly. This is not camping here, rather it is a place to comfortably stay in your RV, and either relax or enjoy the area. We were assigned a spot in the very front row, overlooking the ocean. There has been bluff erosion in the past, and fences are in place to prevent the stupid from falling over the edge. But the view is tremendous, with Drakes Bay visible go the North and Devil's Slide to the South. With the Farralones in the distance, one can watch the endless procession of ships as they enter and depart The Golden Gate. The park is clean, with adequate trash receptacles, doggie bag stations, laundry, nice restrooms, and a friendly staff. They have a nicely stocked camp store with many of those RV repair parts that only fail on the road. There is an incredible bakery nearby, fuel, hardware store, supermarket, butcher, and post office. Water, power, and waste utilities all worked as they should. Wi-fi isn't free, unless you are doing laundry. They have cable tv with HBO, and broadcast HDTV reception is good here. AT&T cell service was about 4 bars. Picnic tables are at some corner sites, and scattered throughout the park. - Kvw613

We stayed January 2017 to April 2017 for my work. It is right on the Pacific ocean. Beautiful views. Close walking distance to good food, post office, pharmacy and grocery store. Easy public transportation access into San Francisco. Park was clean and well maintained. Spots are narrow and long, not much room to sit outside your unit. Park is all asphalt. Constant water and sand all over everything since right on the water. Downside to staying for 3 months was the rust on things. Our bikes are currently at the shop getting a big over-haul due to the rust issues (yes they where covered). We would stay again, just not three months. - LaneyC RN

There is also some dry camping spots I believe four of them and if it's full you can park around the perimeter. This was a very receptive lodge we took advantage of several things going on at the lodge due to the fact we were staying here because of our son having medical issues in the UCSF medical clinic. We were here seven days because we are self sufficient with electricity and water so we just dry camped for $10 a night . They do have a Gym here so there is showers available if need be. The secretary here, we got to know personally, very very nice lady; will do anything to help you out. We were here for a Sunday breakfast which was excellent - it was their purple pig fundraiser. There is 30 amp electrical which you will need a long cord; there is also water available at least have a 50 foot and possibly even longer water hose for water hook up. There is no sewer but there is a dump service that comes around weekly if need be for I want to say $65 . You cannot find any campground for less than $85-$100 a night around this area, trust me this is quiet nice and worked great for us coming and going. - monaco cruiser

Absolutely the worse RV park we have ever stayed at. The "manager" went out of his way to be rude, the park was filthy e.g. Garbage dumpsters were overflowing, roads covered with standing water after rain, lots of police action and drug dealing, - Fm 2030

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

Alright folks, if you are coming here in an R.V. for a short stay you can't beat it. It has no picnic table, no fires, no club house, and some views; it is an urban R.V. park. You probably aren't planning on spending a lot of time in your rv. You've come here for some specific reason and not to go Glamping.
With that mindset this place is excellent. The sites level up very easily. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry rooms were spotless and are cleaned daily. The showers were fully heated and had plenty of hot water. All the folks I met were extremely friendly and helpful. The staff was on the ball and very pleasant.
As previously mentioned the short term sites are on the bay side of the park and ours had a great view of the bay and the surrounding mountains.
We did not try the park wifi but my Verizion Mifi worked great. Getting in and out of the sites was a dream and there was plenty of room for coach and the the toad. The utilities provided clean 50 amp power, and simple sewer hook up. ( if you find it draining your tank a bit slow loosen the cap on top of the island). There's cable hook up but we spent so little time in the coach we didn't hook up to it. We paid a bit less than $73 for a 7 day stay. The daily rate is $85. The front part of the park is for long term residents and the sites are clean and not cluttered with all the units I observed in very good condition.
We will stay here next time we come to the Bay area. - pumper9x9

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

The only good thing to say about this park is its proximity to downtown. This was our 3rd and last visit. Over a 7 year period, the owner has not made one noticeable improvement. In fact, it has gotten worst. The park is not big rig friendly. This was our first visit with our 40' and we had to try 3 sites before we were able to squeeze in between 2 backins. When we extended our full slide out, we were inches from the coaches on both sides. Parking is a real problem for tows. There are several long term units that are disgusting. They do not follow the rules pertaining to nose, working on vehicles, junk and walking pets. We even saw a rat around one of the end sites that was littered with junk. If you get stuck in the back, there is a construction company across the fence with lots of noise and dust. The park rule is to walk your dog outside the park. The walk outside the park is so littered with dog poop, we would not walk our dogs along the sidewalk. - Michael47

On the up side, it's very close (a few miles) and about 30 minutes into SF. On the down side, sites are too close together (closer than any we have had in Key West), not long enough for a "big rig", all blacktop (no grass or shade). The place is right next to a construction site, right next to an abandoned park and right next to the defunct ball field. The price is outrageous for a place to park and sleep. And people live here. - NJPB

It is a blacktop park. No grass or trees and the spaces are very tight. You have all you can do to squeeze between two other campers. There is not enough room for slide outs. No tables or fire pits. When it rains the lots flooded. Very expensive for what you get. No cable but wifi when you could get it in. - PWMW
