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.

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.

Very noisy location

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for sharing your experience. Our convenient location, right off Highways 101 and 156, offers travelers easy on and off access, but does come with highway noise. We apologize if it disturbed your trip. Hope your kamping trips in the future meet your expectations.

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!

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.

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
May 10, 2017
The entrance is straight up a hill with not much room to park for check in. The sites are narrow with no trees or ambience. Many full-timers. I gave 2 stars because the staff was so nice and helpful.

The hillside sites could be a little wider and longer. You plan for new bathrooms should include construction of a new facility somewhere near the bottom of the hill. Pool was nice, cable and wifi worked well. Construct a new bath house and the place is a 9/10.

Thank you for sharing your experience. Our restroom renovation is a major project and has unfortunately taken longer than we anticipated. It is still a priority and will be completed soon. Thanks again.

Really nice staff at check-in and throughout the stay. Good camp store and swimming pool. RV hookups are well maintained. I saw plenty of effort to maintain and improve. RV spaces are narrow and except for a line that backs up to a fence line, all RV spaces are barren asphalt. Freeway noise is 24/7 and location is neither Salinas nor Monterey. I would call it remote. Only a place to stop overnight

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Our park is older and was designed when RV's were considerably smaller. Our location allows convenient off and on access to highways 101 and 156 which does mean there is highway noise. We hope this didn't ruin your stay.

This was our first time here and was pleasantly surprised at how nice this property is. They are making improvements, some due to age, some from storm damage. Very nice management and employees, great pool and store in the office area. We will definitely be back in the future.

Space was too small and no private space to sit outside. Could not put awning or chairs. Dog run is non existent. Price is high for quality. We've had better and more space for less$

We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay. Our spaces are small due to the age of our park. It was designed when RV's were considerably smaller. We hope your future camping experiences meet your expectations.

We enjoyed the quite at night but it is really noisy during the day with a gas station within a stone's throw. In there defense it was a beautiful weekend and the Harley's we're out in full force. The sites are small and all concrete. Dog park was under construction. Pool was awesome and clean. I will be back but in a better site.

We are sorry the noise disturbed your stay during the day. Our convenient location does make highway noise a side effect of the easy access to the highway. We hope your future kamping experiences meet your expectations.

wifi availability is important. the wifi here was very bad. the place is rundown and needs an upgrade! the dog run turns into a muddy mess when wet rendering it useless. the location of the showers/bathrooms is poor. it is not worth the charge per night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking the time share your experience. Our dog walk is a major problem. It has been closed until it can be cleaned up. The repair of damage from the series of storms was the priorty but the dog walk repair will be completed soon. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Some parking pads in need of repair. Some pads seem dangerous with possible drop offs for both RV's and pedestrians. Great staff.

We were very happy with our stay except for the dirt path to walk our dog was muddy in the morning. I guess I am somewhat spoiled. We also had a run in with a German Sheppard that was not leashed and tried to attack my Boxer puppy. Thankfully he backed off after my husband kicked him and no one got hurt. The owner came over and apologized but it definitely made our stay uncomfortable.
