RV Reviews

Although very clean, RV sites were way too small and too tightly packed together. No privacy. Highway noise was a problem. Best used only as an on-the-road overnight stop.

spaces for rvs were very tight. not big enough to park trailer and truck in spot really like the people in the park

Spaces too close to each other. Camper (class C) next to me could barely exit his vehicle while my basement door was open while I hooked up to power post. 50 amp socket didn't work. 30 amp breaker turned on 20 amp socket etc. Steep narrow entry, freeway noise. Did I say sardine can spacing? Next door camper was offered 2 nights for price of one while I was denied any specials or senior discounts.

One night stay is okay, for a long term stay it´s too loud nearby the highway

The staff was very good but the material condition of the park was overall in disrepair. Efforts were underway to rectify the situation but the rate of decay was outpacing actions of management.

The staff is friendly but the park is NOT big-rig friendly. The pull thru we were in with our 38 ft 5th wheel had our slide touching the fence on one side and the picnic table on the other. Getting in and out of the site was challenging. Another trailer had sustained damage coming into the park by the tight spaces. We will look for an alternative next time.

The sites were too narrow with a slide. Our door opened into a flower box. We had to change sites when we checked in because our slide hung into the street and we were afraid that it would get hit. The eating areas at each site were nice, but they seemed to be at the wrong end of the trailer, as most people had rear doors.

Everything was good except your sewer would not work with standard fittings. I had to buy $22 worth of abs pipe fittings at home depot in order to get the std. RV sewer hookup to work.

Nice campground - they need more 50 amp sites

Pool not open, cable didn't work, Bathroom door code open to public, spider webs on playground equipment

More of a parking lot than what we look for in a campground. Facilities clean and staff nice and helpful

We enjoyed our stay. Very helpful and friendly staff. This KOA is close to Monterey coast area. Only request is to improve WiFi service.

Old campground. Sites are very small. People are great. Near all attractions.

The manager was very pleasant, interesting in his life experiences and accommodating. As for the park, it's time for the owners to put some money into it. It's looking tired and in need of some TLC as far as the grounds go. A little landscaping would be nice. It's just not very inviting. Too much pavement for us when it easily could have some planter boxes, some grass to soften its cold appearance

We really enjoyed our stay. We were centrally located to the places we wanted to visit which was great. Staff was very friendly.

Small, nIce & clean older campground. Camp hosts were very helpful and courteous. Great pull thru spots. Lots of road noise, but tolerable, location is just off Highway 101.

We like the setting of the campground, and the location vis a vis Salinas and Monterey. Park staff/owners were very helpful and congenial.

This is a nice stop over park. Not much to do. Needs a better playground for kids of all ages. The owners were very nice and even delivered fresh baked chocolate chip cookies our first night. It is kept clean but would like to see more flowers etc and pool to use all season. A spa would have been great if the pool isn't in use for the winter months.

Clean facility, friendly staff. Playground could use some updating. Would like see better fencing to feel more secure. Felt too open to the road below. An off leash dog run would be nice too.
Feb 17, 2014
Campground was a little too urban for me meaning concrete sites, no trees or grass and close to freeway (noise). Sites were level. Great experience though. The staff was very friendly and helpful and great chocolate chip cookies. I will stay there again.
Feb 15, 2014
The staff is good but the park is near a busy road so it is a bit noisy and the access is strange. We liked the proximity to Monterey and other coastal areas.

Very convenient location for Monterey visit. We enjoyed the surprise warm cookies delivered by management. The park was clean, utilities were well located and functioned well.

Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They provided us with a lot of information about the area. They also made excellent suggestions for places to eat!


It was our pleasure to have you in our park. We wish you safe travels and hope to see you again soon.

It was nice, the weather was nice. Convenient to Monterey and Gilroy stores.

Nice to stop half way on our trip, but the noise from the highway was loud.
Jan 11, 2014
the only reason we would not recommend this koa is to keep it a secret to ourselves. we will come again excellant staging for the area. great people clean all around and thank you david and rana


We appreciate your kind remarks. It was our pleasure to meet you and be your host. Hope to see you again soon, safe travels.

Convenient location, friendly staff. Just felt a little scared. Not sure how safe that area is. Could there be some security measures, like gated entry or security guard? Otherwise, it was nice.

It was OK except for the Wi-Fi which was non-existent 2 of our 5 day stay. It's hard to get on. The cleaning lady was cleaning at hours other than posted.


We apologize for the wi-fi, our provider had equipment issues. Our housekeeper did do her cleaning earlier than normal so she could take her sick child to the doctor. We're sorry if this was an inconvenience for you.

Pulled in at 8 pm on a Saturday night before Christmas. Was shocked to see a friendly face there to greet us. It is a perfect spot for those traveling up the 101.

Great staff to deal with. Sites are a tad short for big rigs but clean, paved & level.
