Pacific Coast Section 4, Map 43

The campground at Half Moon Bay State Park is closed until approximately April 2015.
Tent camping is available in an ugly gravel parking lot at 460 Wavecrest for $45. (!!!)
Hotels in the area were $130-160 when I was there (early December 2014).
You will probably want to plan ahead to avoid sleeping in this area until the park re-opens.

That is really too bad.  It was a refuge for my partner and me after a long and harried day getting through the SF area.  Is there any known reason for this closure.  It is unfortunate that an effort has not been mad  to provide a substitute affordable situation for those choosing to travel is a healthy and ecological way. 

May the wind be at your back!

The guy at the front gate said they were doing a renovation.
