A very good location to visit the surrounding area. We used this park as our home base. The busy freeway traffic noise did not disturb us. It is apparent major upgrades were taking place and the park owners are intent on making this a great KOA Park!

Was just a parking lot. Washrooms were small and needed revamp. And only cold water in the womems. Staff was nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry you didn't get to enjoy all of the other amenities our little park offers including the heated pool, playground, recreation room, dvd library, horseshoe pit, etc. We realize our restrooms needs work, but we wish you had brought it to our attention during your stay so we could helped.

very noisey road ,bathrooms are so poorand in bad need of remodel, but the people are very nice

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our convenient location, right off highways 101 and 156 offers easy on and off access, but does come with highway noise. Our restrooms do need work and that is a priority that was delayed due to a series of storms but is back on the list. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Tight turns in park. Sites are all paved with asphalt with no grass, picnic table, and fire pit. The staff is wonderfull. Accommodating and attentive. I had a small leak in my water connection and within a short time it was noticed buy a park employee allowing me to fix it before it caused a large flood. Park events included a breakfast, and a wine tasting and snack party. Will stay again.

I felt scammed when price was bumped after I arrived. No facilities were in good shape. Only excuses in the flyer with big "plans" promised. Awkward layout, noisy from highway, too many long term residents. Etc. etc. etc.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Once you arrived, at your desire and request, you were moved to a larger site which was a different rate. We apologize for the highway noise however that is a side effect of our convenient location, right off Highways 101 and 156. We hope your future kamping experiences live up to your expectations.

Fun place. The kids loved the pool, and nice and heated even with the normal overcast/cloudy skies. Staff were always pleasant and willing to go the extra mile. Accommodations were cozy, clean, and well priced. Will definitely be coming again!

Very friendly staff! Our kids went swimming, played table tennis and pool, basketball, tether ball. KOA provided s'mores, hot dogs, donuts, wine tasting, coffee! It's right by a major freeway but lots of fun.

Upon check-in, we were greeted by the friendliest staff. We were set up in a cabin, but they asked if we would like a different one with less road noise. The cabin itself was adorable and clean! Such comfortable beds, and a very quiet spot. Loved this KOA and intend to stay again!

The cabin was very clean and cozy . The fridge was apartment sized, way too small to put food and things from a cooler . Bottom line it's a great one night quick pit stop but if I was planning on staying there for any length of time I would've been extremely disappointed . It looks like it's a trailer park with a few cabins .

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad to hear you enjoyed the cabin. They are actually set up for short-term travelers stays and long-term stays are not allowed. This KOA is located in front of a mobile home park. It's a unique setup but part of our charm. Thanks for sharing your experience.

The office staff was very friendly and we loved our site. The store was very well stocked and did some personal shopping while there. The pool area was beautiful though we didn't swim. The grounds are well manicured and though it is an old park they are working hard to upgrade. Will definitely stay there again if in the area. Managers were friendly and very helpful.

The only draw backs were the spaces are crammed together and we were apprehensive about using the fire pit. And there is only one bathroom with showers which would be okay if you were parked close to them. Unfortunately we had a pretty good hike. The staff were wonderful!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for sharing your camping experience. We do apologize for the size of our sites, however, our park is older and was designed when RV's were considerably smaller. We appreciate you staying with us and hope to have you as a guest in the near future. Thanks again.

It was fine for a parking lot. We prefer places with more space but this location was what we needed.

The width of the site is way too narrow. It was hard for me to access the the waste valves of my rig because of the way the sites are tiered. The noise of the 101 freeway was constant. Had a power outage that lasted all night. It was a PG&E issue. The staff was very diligent in getting the problem resolved.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry your kamping experience involved a power outage. We did work as hard as we could to get the issue resolved quickly. We hope your future kamping experiences meet your expectations.

Beautiful area. The grounds are well maintained. Pleasant conversations with the office staff. The manager assisted us with a bad RV tire. Close to freeway to travel either way to enjoy the area. Great stay... Thank You😊

The rv park is pretty and clean. Close to Monterrey too. My RV was cramped width wise with the neighbors slide-outs almost touching my truck but ok lengthwise. Internet is capped at 1Mb/sec. Nice people-pool-office.

It looks like they're in the process of updating. People were nice, but half the campground lost power on the second night. Made it a very expensive DRY Camping experience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry your kamping experience involved a power outage. We did work as hard as we could to get the issue resolved quickly but the issue was not something we could fix. We had to wait on PG&E, the local power company. We hope your future kamping experiences meet your expectations.

Loved it other than it was too difficult a trail to walk to the beach - well, at least the walk BACK! Beautiful and peaceful! Lovely people in the office! Nice hot tub!
May 18, 2017
Wi-fi worked well, sites were too close together, and entire park appeared to need rehab. No pet walk available, "being re-done".
May 18, 2017
Great service and site!
May 16, 2017
We truly enjoyed our stay. The staff was very accommodating. They made our stay welcoming and inviting throughout our mother's day weekend by offering enjoyable activities. They offer very clean cabins and overall campground. The kids enjoyed the heated pool and rec room. We highly recommend!

Clean,friendly

We stayed for 2 nights in one of the back-in spaces along the back. I liked the hedges separating us from the neighbors on both sides. It's a small campground with small spots, but the people were nice and it's easy to get to. The highway noise is noticeable, but not a deal-breaker, for us at least. It's a decent place to stay if you're going to Monterey or the surrounding area.
May 15, 2017
We stayed during camp/care weekend, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The events were well organized and we loved our cabin! We tried to book another stay but they were full--a testament to how much guests want to stay here. We can't wait to return.

I've stayed here several times with my small trailer. Now that I have a larger one I realize how small the spaces are. It's a minor issue and this will always be a place I return on my short getaways

This site has the friendliest and most helpful staff of any KOA we've stayed at. The pool was excellent and playground good. Only downsides were road noise from 101 and lack of step free access to showers
