Santa Cruz / Monterey Bay KOA, Watsonville, California

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $88.00
Overall Rating:

This was our second night and first experience of a KOA camp. Check in on the gate was efficient but I was disappointed to have to pay an additional camp tax of a couple of dollars to use the facilities, $88 for the night should have covered everything! This is a big camp ideal for kids, ours loved it, but this would be a big minus if you wanted peace and quiet. We were opposite the playground. The sites were big and we had logs delivered to our door for the BBQ. Campers seemed only to be families with children or church groups, there was a lot of praising going on outdoors!! The shower facilities were small and communal. They weren't clean simply because there were so many people using such a small number of cubicles. The shop was well stocked and big, and generally everybody was helpful. I have given it a 7 as it was too big and noisy, and I preferred other sites. We camped at Santa Cruz / Monterey Bay KOA in a Motorhome.

Hearst San Simeon State Park, Cambria, California

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $22.00

We stayed on the Washburn loop which was well and truly primitive: pit toilets and no shower facilities or hook ups, and we loved it!! Beautiful scenery, rangers came round and told off eager campers who had turned their generaters on before the alloted time. Sites were a bit uneven and slightly narrow but we knew that as we had squeezed in our 33ft two slide outs in to a site too small!! Highly recommend this place for great back-to-basic camping. We camped at Hearst San Simeon State Park in a Motorhome.

Santa Margarita KOA, Santa Margarita, California

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Fantastic campground offering a back-to-nature experience. The sites are stepped on a hill with some fairly dodgy tracks up to your site. However the staff, was fantastic at helping us newcomers settle in and giving us top tips on our RV. Beware the laundry facilities: the washing machine turned aload of my whites orange, something to do with the iron apparently!! The staff refunded our money though and tried to help us out. Shower facilities were basic but good. Loved this place for the good old-fashioned camping in beautiful surroundings. We camped at Santa Margarita KOA in a Motorhome.

Marin Park, Greenbrae, California

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

This was our very first campground ever in an RV, as foreigners, British, we had no idea what to expect. The check in guy was very unhelpful as we arrived just before closing, that was made up by the camp hosts the next morning that really tried hard to get us to the Redwood Forest. The campground is basically a car park near the freeway, there were lots of long term lets there. The sites were quite narrow but well kept and level. The shower facilities were immaculate and well kept. I would say an ideal site for getting in and out of San Francisco or John Muir Park. I only gave a 6 due to its location and tight fit of vehicles, service from the camp hosts and cleanliness deserves more. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.
