“A location designed for a 27' FB Airstream!!”

We were incredibly lucky to get a last minute cancellation in one of the best (if not THE best) sites at Francis Beach. This back-in site gave us a panoramic view of Half Moon Bay, the pounding surf, and the changing weather - a perfect setting. Despite April's cool breezy conditions (and quite a storm) the park was full, but quiet. Si... more

“Some of the Best California Beach Camping Can Be Found Here! ”

Reviewed Mar 31, 2018

Overall Rating

This is our 7th California beach state park we have visited this month and one of our favorites! (We have camped at South Carlsbad, Crystal Cove, Point Mugu, Carpinteria, Morro Bay Strand, and New Brighton State Beach.) Other than Point Mugu, it has one of the most accessible beaches. We also feel there was better spacing between s... more

“Beautiful long sandy beach with an amazing coastal bluff trail!”

Reviewed Mar 11, 2018

Wow, just wow! Francis Beach has everything you might want in a campground: Incredible views, scenic bike trails, long wide sandy beaches, electricity, and all while still being close to town! You'll of course want to plan ahead and book an oceanfront campsite 6 months in advance, but we got lucky and someone cancelled last minute and ... more

“Lots of Generators”

Reviewed Nov 15, 2012

Overall Rating

We LOVED Half Moon Bay State Beach during the week. Like any state park, on weekends every spot is taken and it's a bit of a mad house, but during the week it's beautiful and peaceful (as long as people aren't running their generators). Currently there aren't any hookups, but when we camped there last month the ranger mentioned tha... more

“They did not welcome me.”

Reviewed Apr 26, 2018

Overall Rating

I grew up close to Half Moon Bay and was excited to spend the night. I received a very cool, chilly reception at the entrance. I camp in a converted cargo trailer, and got the cold, snotty reception. I was told the nightly camp price was $150. dollars. Not sure what that was all about, but will not be going back.
