Camp at Francis Beach Campground

Half Moon Bay SB - Search Nearby - Added by Austin Brizgys

Camp on a bluff right on the beach. Surf and bodysurf right outside the tent. Perfect staging location for hikes and rides in the area.

If you love to log as much water time as possible, this little gem is the campsite for you. Half Moon Bay State Beach is actually four smaller beaches, with a total of two miles of sandy shore, but you'll be camping right at Kelly Ave., one of Half Moon Bay's most consistent surf spots. Keep in mind that this is northern California beach camping - this spot is pretty exposed to wind and fog, and can be chilly at times...but the convenience of having surf right out the tent door can't be beat.

There are picnic tables, BBQ grills, fire rings, and hot showers.

Reserve at ReserveAmerica.

Great Spot

If you're taking a trip up the coast or just wanting to get out for a night, this campground is so easy to access and right on one of the better surf spots in HMB. This place always seems booked but if you show up at 6pm they hand out sites that people have previously canceled.

Idyllic

If the waves are even decent, this is a pretty unbeatable camp/surfing spot.

What a wonderful place to fall asleep listening to the waves! Perfect one night getaway!
