One of my favorite vacations! I was looking for a quiet cozy secluded home away from home & not for the whole rugged camping. Staff was all friendly the location of the KOA was easy to find. Drive through Starbucks minutes away! Monterey/Carmel was a quick 20 min drive down the highway.I stayed in the "Honeymoon" cabin and it was BEAUTIFUL! I highly recommend this KOA

Always friendly and helpful front desk personnel! Facility is being painted, new landscaping and a beautiful pool area. Bathrooms could use some updating (showers) but overall clean.

It would get a great rating except for the Highway noise.

Overall a nice park. Staff was very friendly. Showers were not very clean though.

Noisy nighbor with 3 dogs staying for long period, should not have been put next to them! very poor management!

Pros. really friendly staff and nice well kept grounds. Cons. Asphalt on the entire area is fairly new or something and stunk very badly. No grass or trees at sites. Needs some sort of fence or gate since it's right next to hwy, and gas station. Didn't feel real safe when you would watch random guys walk up and go through the dumpster right behind our Rv.

We enjoyed our stay at Salinas/Monterey,CA because it was quite close to the coast (11 miles)The main road wasn't too noisy and the facilities were OK. Friendly welcome. WIFI didn't extend to our site 133 but OK near the reception building

This is a stop over KOA. They have a heated pool and a limited area for the kids to play. No real dog area and if you are in the lower area, you might have a view of the chevron across the street. There was no fence blocking the property off from the street near the lower area where we stayed. It looks like they might be working on it. Again, nothing fancy, just a stop and stay KOA.

Incredibly clean & well cared-for property. Honest & friendly staff. Highway close!

The sites were not designed for a rear entry door to rig. Our fifth wheel door opened to nothing, as in, if we walked down the stairs we would have fallen 3 feet to the space below. The "pad" for picnic table and fire ring is too far forward. It made the configuration awkward. (Had to park our truck at the rear of the site, and pull our fifth wheel all the way forward.

It was the cleanest an best maintained KOA on our trip.
May 27, 2016
As expected.

Great location, staff was very friendly.
May 24, 2016
This KOA was very poorly designed, the sites were very tight to get into and out of, there was absolutely ZERO grass at the site at all, the sites were narrow, there were no fire pits or rings, the pool was not in working order while we were there, and their playground was only fit for preschoolers. There is also a really tight corner coming in. Not at all good for longer camper trailers.

Very peaceful & friendly place!

RV spaces are kept well maintained. A little noisy next to the freeway but you get used to it. Camp hosts are terrific and very friendly and takes very good care of their guests.

Loud, right on the freeway.

WiFi Didn't work, our spot that was assigned to us was taken by a wood chipping machine when we got there at 8 o'clock at night and no one was around to help us. Traffic all night long I should have just pulled over on the highway to sleep for the night. Very run down, looked like drugies were across from us. didn't feel safe at all there. Would not ever recommend this place so many other choices

nice people running it. Rough campground and amenities.

The pet area is difficult to traverse at one end. Lots of weeds. There is no enclosure to exercise a pet as I have found present in most KOAs we have visited throughout the country. The hookups need updating. It appears that there has been limited investment in the paved areas or the hook-ups. Friendly people in the office and my reservation was ready when I arrived.

The staff here is very kind and helpful but the RV park is borderline awful. The entrance to the park is difficult to negotiate in a big rig. The spaces have you packed like sardines next to one another, especially you your rig has slides. Basically a parking lot with hookups.

We had a family reunion here, it was a great place (could have been better if pool was opened) but otherwise staff, facility, location were very good.
Apr 30, 2016
Park is rundown and unsafe Mgr is very rude and obnoxious
Apr 29, 2016
The location was great the atmosphere was great the cabins were great. However the gas wall heater effective miasma terribly. And I wish you had a hot tub. Other than that our family get-together slash reunion was fantastic thank you for being there for us we will be back. P.S. The prices competitive..

not well kept and security was lax.
Apr 28, 2016
This is a quiet, clean and beautiful site.
Apr 27, 2016
Mens restroom never cleaned, garbage was in campsite when we arrived, parking areas need to be swept or debris blown off and very poor entrance for big rigs.
Apr 26, 2016
Dirty bathrooms- & not cleaned on weekends. Pool not open on 4/24 - open date posted 4/1. Stairs up to bath bldg. dirty and pitched down - dangerous. Holes in roadways. Sites VERY tight & small- like sardines. Not properly maintained- has potential-painting underway. Paper towels empty and dryer in men's room broken. No recycle and trash bins overflowing. Sites messy & not cleaned. Messy paths.
Apr 24, 2016
Could not get on to wifi. Check in instructions after hours were not very clear.

Office staff was pleasant and helpful, showers were great but the whole campground needs rehabbing-safer stairs-very uneven,improved trash/recycles pickup-recycles looked as if they hadn't been picked up in weeks, dog area with grass (not a homeless man sleeping there)
Apr 22, 2016
KOA should be ashamed to have their name associated with this site the staff were very friendly but the condition of the site is disgraceful there are homeless people walking around ,were were first allocated a site beside a long term resident who had 3 husky dogs shedding hair everywhere there was toilet paper around the sewage connection ,I could go on and on but just feel really let down by KOA
Apr 21, 2016
the people who work there were very nice but the facility is awful. The sites are extremely small. We could barely get our slideouts out. We were next to a long-term site complete with junk car with the hood up and junk scattered all around. When we opened our camper door there were three big dogs tied up just staring at us. :(They live in the junk car). Worst KOA we've ever stayed in.
Apr 18, 2016
After staying 12 days, I needed to stay longer. I took off work to meet with the Manager, but she left early. After discussing my needs with one of the staff, they extended my stay. The manager left me a very nasty voicemail regarding my extension and how I needed to leave and should not be there.
Apr 17, 2016
Good just for overnight, what we dix Tight turns for big rigs

Problem with reservation was resolved quickly and fairly. Friendly efficient service, welcoming atmosphere.
