It's hard to decide what's most remarkable about Half Moon Bay: these gorgeous views of the Pacific waiting right outside your tent flap, or the fact that this relaxing nature-filled getaway is only thirty miles south of San Francisco? Take advantage of it all with a weekend (or longer!) of camping near Half Moon Bay. For the real treatment, your best option is Half Moon Bay State Beach, where a stay at the Francis Beach Campground is your ticket to ocean tide alarm clocks and watercolor sunsets from the comfort of your campsite. Choose from sites located right along the dunes, or venture away from the beach for sites with hike and bike access. Hike the tall, looming bluffs and nearby redwood forests, wander through fields of wildflowers, pay a visit to the nearby elephant seals, or just spend a day in the surf. Half Moon Bay State Beach fills up fast on the weekends, but just a few miles down the coast, private ranches and farms along the water offer campers a little peace and seclusion away from the crowds.
