Mount Madonna County Park, Watsonville, California

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park in the trees - halfway between Watsonville (very cool coastal area) and Gilroy (very warm inland area). Excellent tree cover and while this makes for comfortable days and nights, you may get some marine layer (so heavy this morning it was like rain) and you'll get little to no cell reception. Other than that, it's convenient (except for the road work on 152 that can get very congested) to so much and a pretty good deal for what you get. Tip: If you want to burn some firewood at your fire ring - bring your own since they sell it there but for $13 for a small box. We camped at Mount Madonna County Park in a Motorhome.

Coyote Lake-Harvey Bear Ranch County Park, Lakeview Campground, Gilroy, California

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Great camping area. Lots of wildlife too. Rangers keep things running smooth. I like that they make people follow the rules. Excellent shower facilities. Can also launch boats/kayaks, etc. Except for no cell service, this is great campground. We camped at Coyote Lake-Harvey Bear Ranch County Park, Lakeview Campground in a Motorhome.

Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve, Morgan Hill, California

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We went right before Memorial Day and there was good weather so it was packed. Overall it's a decent place. In the trees close to town but they put us in a way too small site, so our car didn't fit. They also had alot of transient "full time" campers that were always skirting the rules: usually with loud music and/or pets. Not sure why they have so many sites crammed together as that pretty much makes it more of a parking lot and not really camping. If we didn't get the Thousand Trails membership for free, I wouldn't buy one based on this or the Hollister locations. We camped at Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve in a Motorhome.

Thousand Trails - San Benito Preserve, Paicines, California

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

We spent one night here with a new Roadtrek motorhome just to get the first time out under our belt. The weather was good spring weather, and while it was busy we were able to get a site with hookups that worked. I agree with the other reviews posted about this time, except on customer service and bathrooms. We had no complaints on either. We parked next to a couple of nice full timers that were very helpful, but they did mention not to leave things unattended. (Some people that "lived" here full time apparently can't be trusted.) That's my biggest complaint with this and the Morgan Hill Thousand Trails is that there Seems to be an over abundance of transient type residents. We camped at Thousand Trails - San Benito Preserve in a Motorhome.

There is a café that serves breakfast but if you go, get there early without high expectations. But its cheap and decent.
