Extremely noisey by freeway. Campsite was dirty. Fire pit had old pizza in it littered with ants. Power dropped too low and our surge protector disconnected us from their power source preventing damage. On the up side it is a good central location. Nice pool. Good spot to park rv if you are t going to spend any time there. Pleasant staff.

Property is in need of a lot of deferred upkeep.

The only real problem was the noise, as my wife is a light sleeper. We expected noise but being right across the road from the Chevron without a sound barrier was too much. The staff were nice, even fixed our reservation when we didn't put the member weekend code in and could have missed the free second night. The kids loved the pool. As first year members we have more to explore before returning.

This was a great get away for our family. Clean, quiet, and a lot of fun. Even when we checked in, the service was outstanding. We plan on visiting again.

I like the campground only the space I had did not work for my triple slide unit, I was unable to utilize my outside kitchen due to the way the site is set up, the drop down area prevented me. There were no other site available for my stay. Other than that we enjoyed our stay.

Had difficulty with manager over releasing future spots. Had to move several times.

The bathroom facilities were clean and adequate. However, this camp ground is really just a parking lot. Pitches are VERY small. There is no security and no privacy. Definitely not up to the standard that we expect from a KOA site.

Although this is a small campground, I found that the sites have a lot of room to be very comfortable. The restrooms and showers were clean and not too far from our site. The freeway is very close, but after a long day of play, I didn't notice any noise during the night.

We met family here and they stayed in your cabins. Wonderful time and everyone was very helpful

Sites are very close together but it's a typical KOA. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

5 stars if wifi was realiable

too close to the freeway!
Sep 14, 2015
Freeway access difficult and confusing. Big hill up and down was scary for my group. I liked pullthru sites. Close to all activities.

This campground served a purpose. It was noisy, had a lot of long term, grouchy residents, and boasted a rather rude desk person. It was clean in daily rental places, but long term sites are gross.
Sep 13, 2015
It's a bit old and needs some updating. Difficult to get a big truck and 5th wheel out as some campers park outside of their site spaces into the driveway areas.
Sep 09, 2015
Spaces are tight but it's inexpensive. Bathrooms are in poor shape with no ventilation.
Sep 09, 2015
good campground but hard for a long trailer to park if you come downhill and make a right turn it is fine but if you have to make a left turn cannot make it have to back in
Sep 08, 2015
Friendly office people, great pool, pretty good sites. No complaints. Could be a little more space between sites, but overall I would go back. Thank you!
Sep 07, 2015
Great,Great,Great. Stayed for two weeks, left on Labor Day weekend .a hidden jewel. Don't tell anyone.

The Campground is near to Highway and therefore it is loud. Pool was closed too early, so that we didn't can use it. The staff was very friendly.
Sep 05, 2015
Staff very nice and friendly, but site close to the Highway, very noisy. Restrooms and shower in rather poor condition.
Aug 31, 2015
It was a walk from where we stayed to the pool and rest rooms but for the most part great location nice park
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.
Aug 26, 2015
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.
Aug 25, 2015
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.
Aug 24, 2015
The store is the best one out of all 6 on our trip. When you are on the go all day. That really matters.
Aug 22, 2015
We would have preferred not being on a busy road and a paved site. Otherwise, our accommodations were fine.
Aug 20, 2015
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
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.
Aug 18, 2015
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 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.
Aug 14, 2015
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 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
very quiet close to everything
Aug 09, 2015
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.
Aug 09, 2015
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.
Aug 08, 2015
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
Aug 07, 2015
It is camping in a parking lot, beside the noisy freeway. Not a place we will return to or recommend.
Aug 06, 2015
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
Aug 04, 2015
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.
