The location next to Half Moon Bay is wonderful, but we were told to expect a rude staff with lots of rules. We were not disappointed. After three days the rudeness became laughable. The staff had no information about the San Francisco transit system and we were told there was a $5 fee for the internet, but that it "might not work," and there were absolutely no refunds. That pretty much set the tone. Very tight sites as well. Lot's of "don'ts" and "can'ts" but the proximity to the ocean really is great. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Sites had a little more distance than many of the RV parks we've stayed in. Backing in due to a pole and where the hook ups were located took longer than usual. Friendly / helpful staff. We were here during the Pumpkin Festival, one of the busiest times of the fall for this area and the park was relatively full, but very quiet. WiFi was slow, Verizon worked well. When the fog lifted we had a nice view of the sunset out the back window of our RV. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Charles Dickens may have had this RV park in mind when he wrote “It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.” I can’t say enough good things about the office staff. They went way above and beyond in providing excellent, friendly, professional customer service. It started when I made the reservations and said I would be joining several rigs that were coming at the same time. She was very accommodating in putting us in the same general area of the park. She followed up a few weeks later with a phone call to make sure I was still coming after one in our group canceled. The morning of the day we were to arrive, I received a call from them to let me know they had a broken pipe in the men’s restroom and it would be out of order for a couple of days. She wanted to make sure this did not inconvenience me. Check-in was fast and efficient. We were escorted to our site and helped to position our rig. This was first class, professional customer service all the way. That was “the best of times” The park itself is fine. The only minor negative is the sewer connections are not standard. They are smaller than the smallest standard adapter. The office has connections to lend you for a $10 deposit but even the connections are not standard and it required a little adapting of my hose and some duct tape. Now, for “the worst of times”. Rules, yes lots of rules, written and unwritten. Most make perfect sense and are very reasonable. I couldn’t understand, however, why my friend was not allowed to park his car in the adjacent, vacant space for a few minutes while we stood talking in front of my rig. It wasn’t like he was preventing someone from coming in. The space remained vacant for the next 3 days. Up to this point I was very puzzled by the previous negative reviews. Then, I talked with the third person in the office. The previous description of “rude” and “snarky” are perfectly accurate. I will add “unprofessional”. Certainly a detraction from the park. She is enough to keep people from returning Now for my rating: The first two office people: 10 out of 10. The tops, the best The park: 8 out of 10. Aside from the sewer connection, everything was OK The “rules”: 5 out of 10. The last office person: Negative 5. Be professional. Shakiness has no place in this industry. Save that for your girlfriends. Over-all: 6 out of 10. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Maiden voyage in our brand new fifth wheel and we couldn't have picked a better place...was weary after reading reviews on the tripadvisor site, but we are so glad that we came here. First, for us, it is only a 2 hr drive to this coastal RV park, and although it is not ocean front, from our site (#54) we could see the ocean. 2nd... the lady that checked us in could not have been more helpful! My husband mentioned that this was our first time and she personally helped him with perfect directions on how to back in our rig!!! (supposedly a 35'9", but when she measured, it came up 37'). Third, when we could not get our TV reception thru the cable, she sent her husband right over to come check our site's cable which was fine, so we knew it had to be something with our rig. After asking permission to enter our rig, he helped us figure it out! Most of the sites allow you to park your vehicle right next to your rig, but also offer overflow parking onsite. You are right next to the beautiful Half Moon Bay Ritz Carlton and Golf Course and a 3-5 min walk to the beach/ocean. After dinner, we liked walking over to the Ritz Carlton for enjoying cocktails while watching the sunset at their outdoor fire pits. We will definitely return!

We love this park. This is the second year in a row we have camped here - three weeks in 2012 and a month this year. We are planning on two months next year. You just can't beat the location (overlooking the Ritz golf course and ocean beyond that) and quietness of this park. To top it off, Half Moon Bay downtown is a few minutes away with great restaurants and niche shops. The review would be a 10 if there were more amenities like a hot tub. There are several negative reviews written (esp in Yelp) that almost prevented us from staying here last year - I am glad I did not overreact :). I'd like to address some of the review comments based on our experience and interactions with the staff here: Rules - yes they have MANY rules and are strict in enforcing them. To be honest though, none of the rules have bothered us. But that is probably because we are not partiers, are okay walking our dog on a leash, and don't have a motorcycle or car trailer (they are very strict on no motorcycles as they said they had problems in the past). Park Gorilla - these comments from other reviewers made me laugh when I read them. He is actually a very nice person when you get to know him a bit. He has asked all the other staff to let him deal with any issues so he is the one who most people complain about, but we have had no problems at all with him. Then again, we are okay with following the rules. Check-in: They definitely have a strict check-in policy about late arrivals - BUT they tell you this when you reserve a site and when they call to remind you of your upcoming reservation (which was nice, by the way) so it would be hard to be surprised unless you are driving in late without reservations. The problem for them is they are a small park with a core staff and want to help you with backing into the sites since people in the past have caused some damage and there fore don't want people coming in late and trying on their own. Residents: about 1/2 seem to be year round and 1/2 short-term. Usually we avoid parks with many long-term residents, but the long-termers here are almost all pleasant and accommodating.

Absolute worst RV experience, ever. The list of "No (fill in the blank), No exceptions!" was insane, and delivered with a belligerence and snarkiness usually reserved for 14-year old divas mouthing off to their moms. In an area with chronic fog, mist, and light drizzle during August, the "no campfires, no canopies of any kind" rules made no sense. Although planning to stay four nights, the whole experince was so miserable, we decided our vacation was more important than the money, so we left after one night with no refund for the other three because, guess what? "No refunds, no exceptions!" We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We have camped here every year in our 5th Wheel for over 6 years and hope to come back for many more years to come. The location is simply fantastic; 5-star golf course/Ritz next door, beach cove that is walking distance and pet friendly. We head into Half Moon for fabulous food, drink, and music at "It's Italia" and "Cetrella's" and during the day head out for Fish & Chips on the pier. The park is quiet and comfortable and gives us the relaxation we are seeking. The RV staff are friendly but can be strict, sometimes short, however we have come to love them too and sympathize with their hard job to make it all work. They decorate during October and with the pumpkin patches everywhere it makes the place a harvest delight. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

This is an old park. All sites are concrete pads perpendicular to the road. The pads are double so you park your trailer on one side and your truck on the other side, if that is your set up. There is not much room between the rows of sites so that backing in at 90 degrees is very difficult. We have a 27' 5th wheel and barely made it work. The park attendant came to the site with us to make sure we didn't use the empty site ahead of us to line up better! The price is high but there is little around, so no competition. We could barely see the ocean in the distance over the dunes and golf course, but we could hear the waves during the night which was pleasant. I doubt that we'll ever be in the area again, but if so I'd really plan to stay elsewhere just because of the difficult parking. Better for class B or even smaller class C rigs.

We actually stayed here for several months in 2010, but forgot to write a review. The managers are a bit odd and particular, but as long as you follow the rules, they are very nice. The "many" rules are not so many, nor as ridiculous as some have said. The posts about being turned away if you arrive late are correct. We were cutting it close and called to notify them and were told we had to be there by the office closing time (7, I think), no exceptions. We all know how things go wrong when you travel. If you don't make it early enough, there are no alternatives. There is no Wal-Mart to stay in the lot. There are a couple of nearby supermarkets, but I doubt you could sleep there. They do have a good reason for no late arrivals, but we believe their strict adherence is ridiculous. The park is nice and clean. There are many long term residents who largely were very nice. The weather is nice. The nearby beach is great. You can hear the waves from your RV. Our monthly rate was $900, cash only for monthly. Dogs are accepted. Aside from peculiarities, it is nice. We would definitely return. Any other remotely close park on the peninsula was not nearly as nice. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Quiet area a short distance from the freeway. Easy access, even for big rigs. Large flat pads and the manager helps you back-in. Close to beach is great. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

The park could be a great place to visit, it is near a good dog friendly beach and is located in a great town. The problem is the management they are rude, offensive and overly driven by rules. We arrived at noon and had to leave the park because check in is after 1:00. Our campsite was open and it was not busy. The manager of the park regularly confronts guests for minor infractions. I could here him yell across the park because someone had parked in the wrong spot. We were yelled at and threatened with eviction for supposedly leaving sewer waste in a camp spot the year before. We had not been in the campground the prior year. It was not a pleasant place to be because of the rudeness and overbearing rules. No, no, no, the answer is no: is the philosophy of the park. Another problem is the condition of the restrooms. They are small and dirty. The women's restroom has had a broken toilet for 3 years. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

The location of this park is spectacular! The facility itself needs a lot of cleaning and TLC. The workers are friendly but, they really need to invest some money into renovating this park, it could be so much more. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

We stayed here for a month and a half while waiting to move into a house and the rate reflects that. We had absolutely no problem with any excessive rules that others have. This is a great place to stay, very quiet and everyone is friendly. The staff isn't overly friendly, but they aren't rude either. The walk to the beach is a very short one down a trail. Dogs are allowed on the beach and I took my dog down in the early morning when no one else was on the beach to let her run off her energy. When the tide is low, the tide pools are fun to walk around and explore. The laundry facility is adequate. I did not even go into the bathrooms so cannot comment on them. There is a very small store but we did not use that either. As stated before, the sewer hookup is smaller than most others. Since we were staying long term, they couldn't let us borrow an adapter but they would sell us one. We went to Wal-Mart and bought one for a whole lot cheaper. All in all, we had a great stay and will come back for a future visit. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This is a nice park in a lovely location. We had no trouble with the "rules", as others have mentioned. There are good walking and biking trails next to the park. It was quiet and peaceful. The bathrooms and showers were clean. Verizon worked just fine. Hook-ups worked well, except for the dump at our site, which was higher than our van's outlet. Even though the park was not full, they would not put us near our traveling companions, who had larger rigs than our class B van. That was our only complaint. Apparently only certain size units can go in each spot! We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Park view of golf course, and depending on site, ocean is what makes us want to come back! Some staff are nice; others lacking customer service skills! Way too many rules make it feel more like a military community. The views saved the rating from being total zero. We know now the difference in how much better it is to stay at places who truly care and appreciate your business. The sites all have a little grass so it gives it a less parking lot feel to it. Replace manager and find positive ways to tell rules, and this would someday be a destination oasis! The strict rules of check in/out are unreasonable given there were plenty of open spaces! A little flexibility will go a long way!!! We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo
