Located on the beach of Half Moon Bay, this is one of the San Mateo campgrounds that does not take reservations. If it is full when you arrive, you can get on a waiting list that usually moves every day. The park is near several protected redwood forests.
Pillar Point Harbor RV Park is located on the Pacific Ocean beach. What it is lacking in amenities, it more than makes up for in location. Half Moon Bay is one of the top surfing destinations in the world, and it is a good place for whale watching during the season. You may also get free passes to some of the local activities on Saturdays.
“Absolutely fantastic place. The hosts were awesome! Super friendly people. Reservations are not taken, however, if you arrive and there are no spaces you can have your name put on a waiting list. Sites open and close every day.” – Renaissanceman, Google Review
