Très accueillants Mais internet est très important pour nous et nous avons été deux jours sans pouvoir se connecter sur 7. Les heures d'ouverture du bureau sont courtes en basse saison 9h à 17h.

We found this KOA very austere and stern about the rules and we did not feel particularly welcome for a family. The sites were like a parking lot and the bathrooms needed updating. We ended up deciding to stay in a hotel.

People were wonderful! The location is noisy (too close to main highway) and hard to get in and out of with the rig.

Our hosts were very accomedating even having a Thanksgiving dinner for the tenants. The pet area was interesting but no room to really run our 2 year old Boston Terrier. We would go back though.

The Prunedale/Salinas KOA was great fun! The staff there couldn't be nicer, they were very friendly and helpful. We had a great time and will be back.

Excellent employees at this park. The only negative is the tight turns required to maneuver into position.

Nice spot, clean and neat, great service from "Larry". Will be back next time we are in Monterey.

It was very nice and clean. The spots were spacious.

Too close to the freeway, made for too much noise.

The spaces (pads) are a bit close to each other. Except for that; it's a great place --- very cute, quaint and friendly. We'll be back!

Staff was very helpful and friendly. Campground was very clean and well maintained.

Very enjoyable, great staff. would like to recommend one change to parking large RV's pulling. Example: after unhooking, turn right at 1st road, back down past designated spot then drive into it. This would take away from having to make an overly tight left turn.

friendly hosts and good location for travelers

The staff at the Salinas KOA deserves to be awarded the KOA staff of the Year! This campground is conveniently located to Monterey and Carmel, always very clean and reasonably priced. We would stay here again.

The entrance into this KOA is very narrow and it was virtually impossible to make a left turn into the entrance with my 40 foot coach & tow car; I had the road blocked for several minitues as I manuvered to finally sqeeze in without straching the side of the coach. Conclusing; this campground is not friendly to large motorhomes.

Sorry you had problems entering our park. We know our left turn is difficult for larger RV's, which is why we have on our web site, "Big Rigs call for directions". We thank you for staying with us and wish you safe travels.

Great place to headquarter. Beautiful campground friendly staff. It was fun to participate in the Saturday Halloween activity. Loved it.
Oct 26, 2013
Nice staff. Well cared for campground. Good location
Oct 25, 2013
Good location for the things we wanted to do in the area. Very friendly and helpful staff. Only minor complaint is tight spots with rigs with slide outs and a tow car.
Oct 20, 2013
Friendly and efficient reception, easy to navigate around the campsite and hassle free stay all in all!

The pool was closed but they offered to open it for me. We were greeted warmly and taken to our site. Great customer service. We travel alot and will continue to stay here

Clean overnight campground. Office staff were great and welcoming. Nice touch one of the koa workers guides you into your campsite. Helpful when your tired from driving.
Oct 07, 2013
Staff very friendly and helpful. Hook-ups easy and good. Pad very nice. Spaces pretty cramped together. While pet friendly, the "pet area" was precarious and we would not take dogs there in the dark. Access to the park from interstate was difficult for newbies. But that is more fault of California roads in that area.

Showers hard to get to as you must go up or down stairs.

Trop proche du freeway. Place de jeux pour enfants dangeureuse

All okay, very nice staff, but loud noises from a nearby street and sites very close together.

The overall facilities were clean and well kept. However, the amenities as compared to other KOAs was subpar. The site we were put in was basically a site in a parking lot with no green area and NO FIREPIT! We had 2 children and were placed far away from the playground, which was the only thing (other than the swimming pool) for children to do.

Every thing was great nice and clean ..
Sep 25, 2013
Very nice park with friendly staff. The only negative is that the WIFI is mediocre
Sep 24, 2013
I would recommend this facility to friends and family. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

Campground and staff were excellent. Very comfortable and centrally located for sightseeing.
Sep 24, 2013
Friendly staff. Convenient location. Restrooms were a bit worn but clean. I would go back if in the area.
Sep 24, 2013
The hosts, Larry and Raquel were friendly, helpful and very informative. Probably one our best campground stays ever.

Good location for us with family in Salinas. Always have traffic noise. First 2 days Wifi was spasmodic but next two days, OK. Bathroom was clean and site well maintained. Good place to stay.

Very clean but slightly on the small side. Stayed in space 108 which I think is one of the better spots. Space was nearly level with tall hedges on either side giving good privacy. Overall a good stop.
Sep 16, 2013
The staff was very friendly and welcoming.
Sep 15, 2013
good stay. campground very small.
Sep 15, 2013
Site was more like a car park than a campground. However all the facilaties were clean and worked well. We had a problem with our RV and the staff were really great. Overall clean great people, let down by its looks and too much tarmac.

We hope you were able to get the problems solved with your rental and enjoy the remainder of your holiday.
