“A LITTLE SLICE OF HEAVEN :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012

We have been at Pelican Point RV park for several months and love it there. Their rules for the park put us at ease knowing that it is always safe, quiet and clean. They have been very helpful and have gone above and beyond when giving information of the area. There are great, clean amenities here - a laundry, small store and clean bathrooms with shower. Beautiful, tall trees adorn the RV park, and most of the time at night, you can hear the waves (this is amazing) from the beach that is only a 5 minute or so walk below the RV park. The town of Half Moon is very nice and people even smile there. If you don't like rules at an RV park that keep it safe, clean and quiet, this may not be the place for you, but we feel blessed and happy to be here.

Room Tip: There are rules here - we like that because we can always count on clean and quiet; if you like clea...

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.

I made a reservation in this park against my better judgment. I faintly remember saying to my self that the old man there was a jerk and do not go back. Nothing major just rude and unfriendly and really non-kid environment. Well made those reservations anyway and came from over the hill and left our place at 6:oo pm ish. Waited for the spouse to get off work and final prep and family of four was off for a nice weekend get away. Bay area traffic always sketchy but we were warned that the office closes at 8:00 p.m. On the way we got a call from a nice lady asking if we were going to arrive before eight. I gave my best guess based on logisitics. She said hurry we close at 8:00 p.m. As we approached HMB called and jerk said if you do not make it by 8:00 too bad. Spouse put on the gas and we arrived at 8:03 p.m. the sun is down and the place is locked up tight. A-hole really didn't want the business. Place half empty. Good thing the owners do not need the business or they would just fire the A-hole. By the way down the road the KOA Costanoa graciously put us up for both nights and the weather was beautiful. do not forget to go with your instincts. Man is an A-hole.

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!
