So nice I had to stay twice!
So nice I had to stay twice! With another last minute trip to SF for the weekend I was in need of a place to camp out with little notice. Thankfully Cynthia and Dennis had space, and I was able to book a stay with them super easy. Their home is close to everything I need in the Bay for a whirlwind trip, and it’s so comforting to have a peaceful beautiful slice of paradise to retreat in the evening. I cannot recommend their camp enough! It’s the perfect Half Moon Bay escape.

Beautiful getaway on Hwy 1
Dennis and Cynthia are wonderful hosts. They were responsive and helpful before I arrived. Checking in was a lovely little conversation with Cynthia, and lucky me, I had the whole space to myself. This was my first camping stay through Hipcamp, and it was awesome. I wish I had more time this trip to walk around and explore closer to their property. Definitely on the agenda for next time. 100% would recommend this spot for an easy weekend getaway to one of the most beautiful parts of California.

Nice leveled clean gravel space in a field. Could hear frogs, owls, and the ocean. Peaceful. Close to hiking, beaches, and surf spots.
