Whenever I go camping, it usually takes at least an hour or two to get there. The roads are really winding and most of the day is spent getting to/finding the campground. Oh, and there usually isn’t a restaurant and full bar with — wait for it — karaoke (!) within walking distance.
Back in May, I stayed at a campground ran by the folks at Cameron’s Inn & Restaurant in Half Moon Bay. I wouldn’t call it glamping by any means, I was very glad I’d read all the camping tips on campingfunzone.com beforehand, but it’s definitely not a place where you’ll have to rough it either. On Saturday nights, the bar has karaoke and after a few pints, all the songs sound like the perfect one to sing. I did get a kick out of the two techy guys straight out of Silicon Valley who sang Coolio‘s “Gangsta’s Paradise.” Of course Gabie and I had to sing “Take Me Home Tonight” by Eddie Money. We played that song on the way to school at least twice a week, maybe more. It never gets old. “Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhhh.”
Camping is an amazing way to spend time with your friends and family in the great outdoors. However, it is important to make sure that you have all the necessary supplies before pitching up at a campsite! One of my friends recently went camping and found some great camping, hiking, and fishing product reviews over at outdoorcommand.com – you can click here to get more info. After all, there are so many fantastic types of outdoor equipment nowadays that it can be difficult to know where to start looking.
The RV park and campground is only minutes south of Highway 92 and just off Highway 1. Tent campsites run $30 a night for up to 4 people. For a quick getaway, I will definitely keep this place in mind. Yeah, there’s the whole covered in fog thing most of the time, but the day we went, I actually got sunburned. Look at my sunglasses tan below. Not cute.
