Campground Reviews

Aug 28, 2015
Despite the hosts being GREAT, the sites were crammed together and provided no shade - not to mention privacy, the electrical box was miswired (reverse polarity), and the water spigot was positioned so close to an obstacle that it was inaccessible because I have a pressure regulator. Good thing I was there for only one night.

Overall our stay here was great. Love most of the staff. Bathrooms are in decent condition. Laundry is acceptable. Plants aren't green near the sitw we stayed.

Wondeful location, comfortable cabins, excellent staff..a perfect place to stay when visiting the Monterey area.
Aug 25, 2015
It was very affordable, and the cabins were very roomy and decent.

Not big rig friendly. Like an obstacle course. I had about an inch and a half on both sides pulling in. I hit a bollard pulling out. Just a big parking lots with tiny sites. A low tree on the way out. Only 30amp service. Typical over priced koa.

The store is the best one out of all 6 on our trip. When you are on the go all day. That really matters.

Looking for a campground for our tent we ended up on this KOA. It is disappointing that there is so little tenting on the KOA's in this region of California. The cabin we hired had everything one could wish, was proper and a perfect base for visiting Monterey and the surrounding villages. A pity one could still clearly hear the noise from the highway which is closeby.

We would have preferred not being on a busy road and a paved site. Otherwise, our accommodations were fine.

Worse wifi ever (full site) all pavement no grass Not big rig friendly,(can only enter site from one direction have to unhock towed vehicle to get to drive thru site Tree branch on exit way too low and turns very tight Found manager rather curt

Urban site, close to Monterey, close to a gas station, strip mall. Good value for your money. Loved the pool. But the playground and the outdoor bbq places could be better maintained.
Aug 19, 2015
Small sites, wifi did not work at all. Mentioned the "monthly"rental was spread over to my site, it was like talking to a brick. The 30 amp service outlets really to to be checked for loose connections & overheating. It would be nice if maybe the spiders & webs were not all over the utilities when you go to hook up. So can't thing of any thing good to mention.

We stayed for 4 nights during the Monterey Historics We also rented two cabins for crew members There is some road noise that we did not hear from our RV since the air conditioning was on but the guys staying in the cabins said the road noise woke them up early. Bring your ear plugs We would stay here again

Nice people who works there, but the kampground is nothing but a parking lot.
Aug 18, 2015
Great price, friendly staff.
Aug 17, 2015
Pool was not very warm at all. Cabin had a musty odor to it.
Aug 17, 2015
This place was very clean with a nice pool and really friendly folks working there. Its right off the freeway in a convenient location. It is almost entirely concrete and filled with big 5th wheels and motorhomes. As campers with a small vintage trailer, it's not our style but overall a pretty nice place.

Parking lot with hook ups, no interpersonal skills for the manager, get out of the office and greet people, hate the speak thought the wall cut out. Washrooms were the worst of our trip and we travelled for a month. Filthy, dirty, will not ever stop there again. We could not believe this was a KOA facility.
Aug 13, 2015
Great KOA! Location near highway but couldn't hear a thing inside cabin. Much more than we expected - would definitely do it again!
Aug 13, 2015
Our deluxe cabin was a great place to spend our time in that area. While most staff were very pleasant, I was disappointed that the manager did not seem interested in a problem I had regarding saving $ and earning points for our stay. He just told me to call koa. I would have liked a bit more interest in helping to answer or solve my issue.
Aug 12, 2015
Space was very steep to get in to and we scraped our trailer jacks on way in and out. it is pretty close to the road, so you really hear all the traffic/trucks on Hwy 101 in the morning. Nice restrooms. Nice site - even if was too steep. 1 hour drive to Santa Cruz. Pool could use a little more heat, but was nice and clean. Pet area had bags and cans available, but missing a fence on half of it.
Aug 12, 2015
The spaces were fairly cramped and there was a lot of noise, both from the highway and other campers with children.
Aug 11, 2015
We loved your cabin, game room,pool and store. Convenient location to points of interest in Salinas, Monterey and Carmel.Loved making smores using gas grill. Great memories!
Aug 11, 2015
very quiet close to everything
Aug 11, 2015
I stayed in one of the cabins. They are clean and neat. My dissatisfaction is that the bed was very uncomfortable and they really need curtains on the high windows (due to brightness in the morning)
Aug 10, 2015
We made reservations to stay at this KOA before we bought a value card. When we asked to apply our value card discount the KOA employee did not want to accommodate us. We had to insist that the value card discount be applied. Not a friendly place!

The staff was so friendly. We will be planning another visit to stay in The cabins in the near future. Great location and very nice property.

Fresh water in our tank was very funky- yellow and sand clogged the filter going into water pump. Not sure if this problem occurred from your water source. We never had this problem before. Had to drain tank and sanitize it.

The young lady with glasses working the front desk is very personable. Very polite as well. However, there is a gentleman with glasses (mid to late 40,s ) working the front desk as well. He seemed stressed out when I asked to stay an extra day. He wasn't professional. As a supervisor myself, you must alwsys NEVER let the customer see you "sweat". He did not make me feel at ease.

Very friendly staff member on check in. The restroom facilities are very dated. Mens restroom hand dryer was not working and paper towels would not dispense. Needs an off leash area for dogs. spaces are very tight

We stayed in a cabin and really enjoyed it. My parents brought their RV and it was just really crowded. Would stay again in a cabin but not with a large RV.
Aug 07, 2015
It is camping in a parking lot, beside the noisy freeway. Not a place we will return to or recommend.

Nice very friendly staff. Only problem is very tight sites for big rigs.
Aug 05, 2015
- extremely noisy - wifi doesnt function well - dirty showers - friendly guy
Aug 04, 2015
Very small sites It was just a big parking lot
Aug 04, 2015
The KOA was friendly, not much for kid friendly entertainment however we were there for other reasons. We did enjoy the stay. The other campers were friendly. Thank you we did enjoy our stay. JP

This place was like a parking lot, barely any space. Not at all what we had expected
Aug 03, 2015
We spent 3 nights here. As we were tourists in the area we pretty much were only at the campground to sleep. Our kids loved the large pool. You will need to know that this is right beside the highway near a hill so you hear the trucks quite a bit. The sites do not have grass. The whole area is paved. Not what you typically think of as "camping". Over all, everything was fine.
Aug 03, 2015
Bathrooms need remodeling. There is no room to park next to trailer. Pool was cold. It was overall a decent place to stay. Not worth $60 a night though.
Aug 03, 2015
Basically a parking lot. By freeway, so you hear the noise of traffic. From freewy, it is a bad turn into camp up the hill. Big rigs won't make it, so you have to pass campground and flip around, to pull up hill. Wifi doesn't work. Showers dirty. Pool nice, has game room with pool table and Ping Pong, it's stuffy and note on door to balcony says "keep closed", if you do, it would be claustrophob
Aug 03, 2015
The staff were very helpful. The sites were good. The grounds are not disability friendly though. Getting to the restroom/showers meant getting up two sets of unlevel steps and to the office another set of steep steps or an uphill walk.

Very nice cabin. Nice people at check-in. Kids enjoyed the pool and the playground. We did get itchy bites in the night, but not sure what did it. No bugs seen, very clean looking.
