We'd hoped to stay at Half Moon Bay State Park but arrived at the beginning of "Wildflower Weekend" and it was full. Pillar Point was our Plan B, but won us over with its location.We generally select stops with frugality in mind, but in this case it was about positioning for a Saturday transit of San Francisco so that we can continue following the shoreline north.

Pillar Point is a California style asphalt parking lot RV park. It's laid out with opposing diagonals which precludes one-way traffic. The spaces are relatively short (space 10 is about 30') so there are lots of spots where vehicles extend into the constricted drive lanes, making backing into a site somewhat challenging. The front row premium sites ($84) face the water. The back row "partial view" sites back up to the trees that separate the park from Highway 1, so road noise is constant.

What we really appreciated about this park was that the California Coastal Trail passes by the front of the property. It's about 3/4 of a mile walk to a brewery and several restarants. We bypassed Sam's Chowder House, electing to eat at Barbara's Fishtrap (across from Half Moon Bay Brewing) because we liked the name. Portions were huge and both the calamari and the fish & chips were excellent.

“Million dollar views!”

We stayed at Pillar Point the month of October 2014 for the whole of baseball postseason. The RV park is ~ 40 min south of San Francisco and is easily accessible from Highway 1. Spots are first-come, first-served and the website accurately lists what spots are available on the day.

We received a warm welcome by the RV park hosts when we arrived and were given a partial view site (the only kind available), and we added our name to the waitlist for an ocean view site. Pillar Point is a fairly small RV park and maneuvering is tight, even for our (relatively) small 27' Airstream International. We spent ~ 7 days in the partial view site before an ocean view site opened up, and spent the next 3 weeks waking up to million dollar views of the ocean. Pillar Point is conveniently located near the restaurants at Moss Beach and is a short walk or bike ride away to downtown Half Moon Bay. The bike path runs right in front of the RV park, next to the beach.

Because of its location, Pillar Point is VERY popular during prime vacation months. The traffic along Cabrillo Highway (Highway 1) can also be very heavy on weekends and holidays. Pillar Point has full hookups but no toilet/shower facilities, picnic tables, etc. The sites are on the small side so you are quite close to your neighbors. Because of it's proximity to the marina the foghorn sounds continuously but we stopped noticing it after a day or so.

The RVers we met at Pillar Point were very friendly and most make a trip to Pillar Point annually. It is easy to see why.
