Property clean and nicely maintained. Check-in was a breeze, hosts were wonderful...always a smile, a wave and cheerful conversation...and super choc. chip cookies. We took side trips: Mission, Museums, Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf, S. C. Beach Boardwalk, Mystery Spot, "The Farm"..(GREAT homemade pies. Couple quick stops at the "Giant Artichoke" for Fr.Fried Art. Hearts. Only downside: Traffi


Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure to have you as our guest and look forward to a return trip soon.

Staff was very helpful. Answer questions and went out of their way to make you feel at home. Would stay again and will recommend.

The staff was cordial. But the facilities were poor. The bathrooms were clean, but very Spartan. The shower heads were basically blowing mist and the one toilet in the men's area did not work. If you have knee issues, the up and down the steps will not be very pleasant.

Staff was really accommodating, centrally to the beach at Moss Landing, really clean park and facilities!

you need to trim up the trees and get rid of the pigeons


You may have us confused with another park. We do not have any trees in the section you were in and don't have any pigeons at this location. Thank you for staying with us.

The hospitality and friendliness of everyone was great. Almost like being one of the "family".


Thank you for your kind words. When at our park, you are family. Come back and see us soon.

This KOA is clean,close to everything we did.We will be back!

The host at this KOA is amazing. The location is horrible-right next to the freeway. And all the sites are pavement. Not a campfire ring to be had in the entire place. Also stated we were 15 to 20 minutes to Santa Cruz-more like 40-45.

Rest rooms need to be updated.

Larry the manager was so nice and the best customer service representative that we've ever met. He deserves an award for his dedication and enthusiasm.

The bathrooms are worn and older but very clean, I used the showers every day with no complaints. It is very much like staying in parking lot. Rvs and trailers parely fit. The pictures on the web site are nothing like the actual place. It is a great location for doing other things but definatly not for hanging out there. Larry is a very effective camp host.

The staff is awesome. It's a great overnight stop or a couple of days, but there is a lot of road noise.

Emplacement très bruyant. Douches vieillottes, pas d'eau chaude dans une des deux seules douches disponibles.

We always enjoy staying here. It is very clean and the staff is very friendly.

Location was freeway close off the 101, easy on/off for our small RV. We were only there one night but it was quiet, with a HOT shower!
Jul 08, 2013
Noisy old bathrooms and concrete pads not very attractive

Staff was wonderful! Larry and his wife are so kind and helpful! Other than that... This KOA is a parking lot right off freeway. Sites are very narrow. Woman is long term space 125 is so loud and rude. And her roster is louder than her.

Camp host was great -- helped us park our big rigs.

Outstanding staff, exceptionally friendly. The facility was clean quiet and we had a great time

Awesome and friendly staff! Very clean site throughout, including bathrooms, showers and pool. No issues! Close to grocery and restuarants. Only 15 minutes to Monterey. Would definitely stay here again. Only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because Wi-Fi did not work well.

Great location for touring Monterey, Pinnacles National Park West Entrance or the Wine country of the Santa Lucia Region west of Soledad. Went on a fun ATV tour of Hahn Winery with private tasting. Wonderful wines we all enjoyed! Also ate at Ellie's in Salinas. Nice family style restaurant with large menu that should accommodate most everyone in party.

Most likely the most inviting, polite, helpful staff we have encountered at any campground. The owner/manager (I believe) was as nice and helpful as anyone I have met recently. Nice facility as well and great location. Very clean and well kept.

Very nice campground. Pool was nice. Restrooms/showers were clean. Staff was very friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

We have been travelling for 4 weeks through California and it was the worst campground ever! It is too close to the highway, the sites are too small and narrow without any privacy, just 2 showers for each gender for the whole campground. We would never ever go there again.

I cannot say enough about our hosts, they made us feel welcome and the grounds were immaculate. Would highly recommend this place.
Jun 21, 2013
Terrible camping spot and there isn't really anywhere to walk a pet...the small dirt trail along the busy road that was for pets was a joke....dirty, narrow and noisey. Place was pretty clean and the bathrooms were convenient. Check-in was friendly.

Had a wonderful time. Park host were very helpful and extremely courteous. Small park, clean and close to every thing. Hats off to Larry the park manager for doing an outstanding job.

The rooster waking us up at 6am on our vacation was a little uncalled for. The traffic noise was a little loud, but could have been due to it being Fathers Day weekend. But we really did enjoy the stay. Close to a lot of places we wanted to visit without all of the normal tourist crowds. Staff was very helpful and courteous. Will stay here again.
Jun 18, 2013
Ok for overnight stay. Wouldn't use this campground as a destination. A lot of permanent residents that don't adhere to the posted speed limit. Playground very old and not usable. Better for adults without kids.
Jun 17, 2013
The location was just what I needed. Space was too small (my general complaint about California camping) , wireless was slooooow.
Jun 14, 2013
I thought larry was extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with. The staff in general was great!

The management and staff were very friendly and helpful. They delivered cookies a couple of times. Overall the campground was clean and groomed.
Jun 11, 2013
Steep hills, though the site itself was level, many stairs to climb to reach the office, inadequate wifi

Our dog passed away during our stay. The owner was wonderful to us, kind and caring.
