Pelican Point RV Park
Reviewed April 5, 2012

The park is close to the ocean and that is about it. The sites are okay but not laid out well or well maintained and in the rain become mud bogs, The management and most workers seem to really hate their job and the people they serve, or should I say don't serve. In a camping atmosphere, fun and joy is the mantra, but not here. The staff and management make you feel you are intruding on their private land. I felt like I was imposing when I used their toilets and even when I was buying something form their poorly stocked "store". I agree with others that the manager is vindictive and a control freak. He treats people like we are out to ruin his surroundings and property.

We have stayed here for 3 years in a row, and thought past years might just be poor timing. However, 3 years is too consistent. Whatever the management has that is bothering them so much, it is causing others that spend good money for supposedly good service to have a very poor time. It is time they moved on to a new endeavor, maybe cleaning barnacles off of the local boats.

Room Tip: Go to the park down the road.

The park is nice, the management is sub-par. The manager gets vindictive if questioned about his strict rules. It was raining and a member of our group put up a canopy at their site to stay dry. The maniac manager very rudely, barged into our site while we're eating dinner and told us to take it down. "It's the rules". He's completely unreasonable and wouldn't open up the group meeting room for us. The electrical power is unreliable and not maintained very well.

Some sites are unusable and have no power. The manager threatened to tow away cars parked at these unusable sites.

The manager complained about our Home Depot fire pit saying it's a fire hazard, even in the rain. The manager is a control freak who can only tolerate elderly people who stay in their RV's all day long and don't come out.

The manager threatened one of our group members saying, "He will remember and never allow them to return".

Our group has stayed there for years, but we won't return and will advise others to stay away from Pelican Point.

Happy Trails,
Bill

I really enjoyed our stay over New Years and had no problems. The location is ideal; within walking distance of beach and trails. The town of Half Moon Bay is just down the street. The sites are close together, but I don't know of any private campground with hookups that isn't. The views are spectacular; try to get the upper rows. It is not kid friendly. You must keep your dog on a leash and can't let him howl at your site while you are out sightseeing. They do not make exceptions of any kind. They do "escort" you to the site because they are close together and you can back up off the end. Just ignore the manager. If he is a control freak, hostile, and obnoxious, what do you care? He's not staying with you. We will absolutely be back next year.

We book our trip for Thanksgiving well in advance for 8 people. When the reservation was made, it was stated there would be 8 of us. We were told that would be okay. When we arrived, they decided that we could only have 6 on the sight. After some discussion with the woman at the desk, she said we could pay an additional site cost for the 2 other people and having 8 on the site would be okay. We came back to pay the additional fee and she changed her mind. We ended up with 2 people stranded and forced to find a hotel for them over a holiday weekend! The management staff is extremely rude in addition to very stringent rules - check in before 8pm no exceptions, no fire pits, and they will follow you to your site to make sure your vehicle doesn't get close the grass when you are parking your RV. The only plus is that it is near the beach and allows pets. The State camping site is a much better option.

Within 30 minutes of pulling in we realized the managers and camp hosts were completely hostile, rude and psycho. Small spaces, no firepits, expensive sites. Not worth it- we will not be back - EVER.

Room Tip: Small cramp spaces. Its like camping in a mall parking lot!

The staff welcomed us and were very helpful. The views of the ocean were awesome. There were plenty of places to walk. Very quiet and clean. We will certainly return. If a big storm had not come up we would of stayed two more days.
