The campground at Francis State Beach was closed last week as California State Parks officials began a series of upgrades. The park, the highest grossing public campground on the Peninsula, could remain shuttered for up to six months, but state officials say it should reopen in time for the busy season next year, the Half Moon Bay Review reported.

For nearly three years, the state parks department has been preparing a series of upgrades at the park, including providing power for RVs and trailer campers. The improvements would also improve water and sewer hookups and potentially add three new campsites to the property, said Supervising Ranger Nelle Lyons.

“It’ll make for a nicer campground,” she said. “We had originally hoped we would be able to keep part of the campground open, but it will probably be better for the contractors that we don’t have any campers in there while they’re working.”
