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. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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! We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at this park for 3-nights which cost us what we use to pay for one night at an upscale hotel in Moss Beach. The view here is great! Sites are a little close together, but each one has a concrete slab for your RV and gravel for your vehicle.
The staff was friendly and helped guide us into our spot. We're definitely coming back! We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The beach is an easy 5-minute walk away, golfing, shopping downtown, restaurants, surfing - though at times great white sharks are in the area.
This is a resort town, so expect to pay a little more.

We love staying here. They have some odd rules but it is clean, easy access and in a beautiful location. Easy beach access right around the corner from the RV park. Spaces are close together but just enough space when you are only there for a place to sleep and are out and about for the day. Yes, it pricey but everything in this area is expensive so it's a treat to stay in this beautiful area and the fabulous little town of Half Moon Bay. Lots to see and do up and down highway 1. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Motorhome.

We reserved a week at this campground back in February and were really looking forward to our stay! Quite disappointed once we got here! Many RV's look as if they have been here for quite some time. There are several trees..no grass or flowers, which one would expect at the beach! They squeezed us into a space that was so small my husband had to take off the lift and my mobility scooter in order to fit into the site. They did provide us with personnel to help us back into our spot, and it still took my husband a good 15 minutes to get backed into our spot (that was on top of the 5+ minutes it took him to take off the scooter and lift!) Our supposed "yard" is a very uneven patch of dirt & totally dead grass with a nice big Chevy truck right next to us! If we're lucky, my husband won't catch the trailer on fire when BBQ ing dinner! Definitely will not be back here again...the only plus to this place is that it is very near the beach. If you have any disabilities or you have an over 32 foot rig, this is not a

the park you want to stay in! We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location just a stone's throw to the beach. Sites were paved pad with grass/dirt under the picnic table. Average level of maintenance at best. Lots of long term residents, some grouchy. First night was very noisy with lots of people drinking and talking loudly. The people next to us had at least a dozen people in their site. Next two nights were quieter and management enforced the curfew after we complained. Wifi was $5 per night and worked well (it was worth the $5). Laundry facilities were functional and reasonable. We grew to like this place by the 2nd day. Other choices in town have more traffic noise and don't take reservations; the bar is low. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an ordinary campground with extraordinary attitude. The receptionist person was amazingly unaccommodating. There were multiple signs stating various rules with the clause "no exceptions" included. The sites are close together with a little square of grass. The bathrooms and showers were fairly clean, but ancient. Good location for visiting San Francisco. The state beach nearby is great, but temporarily closed for improvements. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

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.

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 camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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 camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
