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.

Overall rating: 

try to reserve the campsites closest to the ocean if you can - much better if you're right on the edge

Great spot to camp (right on the beach)! The surf can get pretty blown out, so keep an eye on the wind.
