Quiet and clean.

Just a parking lot with hookups. Rvs so close to each other we could hear our neighbors inside their trailer. Door locked when we arrived for our reservation. (Early afternoon). We waited quite a while for someone. Pool cleaner finally came up to let us in. Front desk lady came by later and was very nice and apologized. We probably won’t come back. It was not close to things we wanted to do.

Theresa checking us in was awesome with information and instructions and Bonnie was helpful with directions and places to go. Felt like we were family and being welcomed home. This park is equal distance to all the places in the area you want to visit. Highway noise was not an issue for us. Will make this twice a year visit. Thank you Theresa and Bonnie for making our stay memorable and happy.

Having not booked this thru their website we were not aware they only have a couple 50 amp sites. Would have been nice to know this when I called and spoke with the gal in the office. Campground is on a hill and sites are very small. Barely room for a bbq outside our campsite. No grass but there is a nice dog walk.

Great staff and amenities, nestled between Monterey and Santa Cruz nicely.

It was a nice campground. A little difficult to get to, and a large hill to climb right at the entrance, other than that all was fine. I really like the fences and trees between sites.

No room, campers on top of each other. Worst KOA I have ever been to. Staff are friendly though!

It fit our 43ft fifth wheel, pretty easy to access from freeways. Nice amenities friendly camp host staff, good location to visit the area and beachfront. Nice dog run. A little noisy from freeway. We would stay again. 30 amp electrical system needs some work.

First off the staff of Salinas/Monterey KOA we’re outstanding! I could not have asked for a better staff, they were very caring and thoughtful....AAA plus! The campgrounds were absolutely spotless and kept up daily, again.... AAA plus! I will definitely be staying with Salinas/Monterey KOA again! I highly recommend this remarkable KOA!

We had so much fun!

Turn into park quite sharp and difficult to navigate. There are no bathroom facilities close to the lower RV sites. Park appears to cater more to mobile homes and full-time RVers. On the positive side, the sites are roomy and have full hook-ups with 50 amp availability. The venue is convenient to Salinas, Monterey and central coastal areas.


I am sorry no one guided you to our lower restrooms. They are located on the RV side of the office building right next to the pool. AND, they were completely remodeled in May 2018. It may appear that we cater to the mobile home park but that is just because there are twice as many spaces. Whoever is in the office is always our priority. I know you know this as you continue to stay with us ;)

All good. Clean KOA and installations are very adequate. Have stayed here on several occasions and will continue to stay when I visit the Monterry area.


Thank you - and you are welcome up to 28 days now.

I did have an ice chest stolen that was right next to my trailer, clearly mine!


We apologize for that. I wish I had known so we could offer to replace it. Our fence is complete and now we are waiting for estimates on an automatic gate to keep unwanted characters out of the park,

Great place if you're traveling with dogs. Nice, large dog park, plus a secluded dog walk along the perimeter.
Nov 30, 2018
Friendly and helpful staff, good location to see all the sights of the Monterey Bay Area. Spaces a bit narrow, turning corners a bit tight, no 50 amp power available. Roadway noises can be loud at night. Not really a destination spot, in and of itself, unless you have family in the area, or special sights you want to see.
Nov 28, 2018
Short because of rain ��
Nov 28, 2018
The spaces for RV's are really tight. We could almost shake hands with our neighbors! The freeway noise goes 24/7 and there are roosters that crow at all hours. The pads are tiered and there's a drop off factor at some of the sights, which could be treacherous in the dark. A little too tight and noisy for us.

Had a relaxing enjoyable time. Site 108 was perfect for us. Bonnie does a great job running the place. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

No Wifi at the site and the staff wasn't welcoming. Very loud highway noise and smelly.
Nov 24, 2018
Good location easy access to highways and stores. Friendly and professional staff, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this RV park to my friends and relatives. Kudos to the manager who was a sweetheart and professional . On a scale of 1 to 10, I rate this KOA as a 15
Nov 24, 2018
It’s not a bad place to camp while visiting Monterey or the Pinnacles but wouldn’t spend time just hanging out there. Sites are fairly close together with minimal landscaping. Wi-fi wasn’t good. Could also use more and nicer showers.

Escaping the smoke in SF the cabin provided our kids all the outdoor adventure we needed. Playground is always handy and very nearby. The site was quiet and safe. Manzanita Park, Salinas river and Monterey nearby as suggested on the leaflet. We did not loose any time finding our way or googling website. I did not expect the site to be this close to highway 101. Shower&heating worked well
Nov 20, 2018
Clean bathrooms and easy pull through spots. Very convenient.
Nov 20, 2018
I booked our reservation the day of check in and when we arrived everything was ready. Bonnie was a sweetheart, super friendly and overall made us feel welcomed. The park itself should really consider extending their store hours keeping it open slightly later, 5PM was a bummer as we missed getting a few things by a couple minutes because we set up our campsite first. Overall A++++++

Rude staff on arrival. Ridiculously high overnight rate. No wifi. Site not level. Stuck in between permanent residences. Overall premise is run down, noisy and dirty. Will never stay here again.

The camp hostess was great! Our cabin was very clean. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

I’ve stayed at this KOA before. Although it’s in a noisy location you get used to the noise. The place is Century located between Watson Jones Salinas which is very nice. There’s a little shopping center across the street that has just about everything someone would want. You’re not far from Costco and other shopping area. The staff was excellent as always
Nov 14, 2018
Nice place. Clean, quiet and ran well.

This KOA was just OK. It wasn’t as expensive as some of the neighboring KOAs, but it had very little amenities. The spots are very small (we were in a pull-through site), with little privacy from neighboring RVs. There was a small, thin piece of lattice between the sites. The freeway is close by...but so is the noise. The pro: It’s close to Monterey and has a great sushi place was nearby.

Everyone here is great! They make you feel like family

Location is near highway, good for traveling to amenities, but horrible for trying to sleep at night. The staff was excellent and even offered us a place to stay when our truck wouldn't start so that we could put the trailer in its designated site. We were able to get the car started so did not need the offer.

This RV park was entirely on black top. No grass around the parking spaces and the pull thru was shorter than expected. It was clean, at least, and convenient due to it's proximity to the freeway. Overall, it could have been worse, so I rated it as average. BTW, no wi-fi. Keep that in mind.
Nov 06, 2018
Pluses: convenient freeway access, cleanliness, helpful and friendly management. Minues: WiFi didn’t work, less than beautiful surroundings.
Nov 01, 2018
We have stayed here four times, we like it a lot. It's right next to the freeway so there is some noise. But not too bad. The people are very friendly and helpful.
Oct 30, 2018
The grounds and restrooms are clean and in pretty good shape. The WiFi wasn't working during our stay. The sewer hookup was broken at the first site we were assigned to. A lot of them are recessed far enough into the ground that we can't hookup our sewer lines. The location is great for travel to Salinas, Castroville, Moss Landing and the Monterey Peninsula.

Very old, not updated. Because it was on a hillside, they had boards dividing the sites, they were so tight we couldn’t even fully open our steps because of needing sufficient room for our slide outs. They did move us to a different site then, but it wasn’t much better! They advertised free wifi, but that was only at the office. Even there we couldn’t always connect.
Oct 27, 2018
Very nice deluxe cabin, more like a motel. Comfortable beds, nice to be able to make coffee & enjoy some TV!
