This campground has made big changes in the last three years. All for the best. Bath/showers have been remodeled. They are very clean and warm. - geo cong

Morgan Hill Thousand Trails suffered a serious flood in March, 2016. The resort was closed for 10 months. A massive renovation and renewal is underway. Roads and sites have been cleaned up and graveled, some bathrooms have been refurbished (the rest are in progress), there is new playground equipment, and the Family Lodge is refurbished. But wait, there's more! The pool is refurbished including new furniture, there's a new Adult Lodge, a new outdoor pavilion and new basketball court. The dump stations have new fencing and the dumpsters are hidden by nicely designed wooden enclosures. There's a new 11 hole miniature golf course (yep, 11 holes). New volleyball courts and refurbished tennis courts. The dog run has new sand and fence. There are 4 new "Safari tents" and new BBQ units are being installed everywhere. Still to come is a new fitness center and a check-in desk in the membership building (the old adult lodge). If you have not been to Morgan Hill TT since the flood, come on back and enjoy the much improved property! - Bruce McComb

Paid $5 for 50 amp as was hot weather. Bathroom in our section was closed. Lots of foxtails so check your pet. Do not take a left out of the park with RV even if GPS says to or you will be on a very narrow, winding road with low branches for 12 miles before getting to highway! - rvreviews

Actually free, part of Thousand Trails, but still NOT worth the price. You got slides? Good luck. This park was built before slides and now they have marked out narrow sites with white lines that you are expected to stay between. The fire department requires some magic distance away from the 30 amp electric socket. After getting read the riot act, very nicely, I might add, when checking in, we still ended up in a fierce argument with her when she found we were too much over the line. After I threatened to check every RV in the park to make sure they were in the lines, she gave us a few inches of leeway. She has a truly lousy job. Thousand Trails should be ashamed of themselves. RV's with slides should not be allowed and at 42', our MH leaves our Jeep out in the road, but somehow that's ok. You also park opposite your neighbor. Horrible setup. We test the water. Decent tap water (210ppm) and fairly soft. Thousand Trails is two for two with us so far - two losers. Don't come here. Santa Cruz is nothing anyway. The boardwalk is seedy. - Odyssey

The cable TV works. Wi-Fi, not so much. When you are inside of five miles of this RV park, turn off your GPS. Otherwise, you'll tear your air conditioner(s) off the roof, have to unhook, backup, reverse, and never arrive. The location in Scotts Valley is great. Santa Cruz is but minutes away and every convenience known to man is nearby with a ten percent sales tax. The RV park packs you in like sardines sans olive oil. Your tow car will not fit on your site and they run out of overflow parking around five p.m. They don't seem to object to us parking our tow car in the road. It does make it other people's problem however. There are lots of long-timers with their children who are easy to run over if you are not diligent. This is most likely a corollary of the housing expense in the area. The sites are all 30-amp, full hookup. However, the water pressure can drop to nothing as will the electrical voltage. Our solution for the former was to fill our water tank all day - there is a little water pressure - and run our water pump for showers and cooking. The former problem was solved by running our generator. At $82 a night it does seem they want a lot for very little. On the other hand, the pool looks nice and the hot tub hot. We would not return unless we had to for family reasons. - The Penguin

This park is located within a residential setting. Very low tree clearance at the entrance and had to go in the exit for additional clearance. Everything is tight in this park. We were instructed to keep the entire RV including slides within the white lines...which was impossible. We were told that the fire marshall would ask us to move our RV if we didn't stay in the lines. No one was within the lines. Hard to navigate our 32' fifth wheel into our site but just fit. Not enough room for our truck and hung over into the street, which makes it challenging for others to navigate. Lots of permanent folks with lots of kids loose in the park. We were ok but just watch when driving around. Pool, spa, laundry and bathrooms were in good shape and in working order. Good location for exploring Santa Cruz, Pacifica to Carmel but very expensive! Might stay here again if we didn't have other options. - JeffDeb

We found this to be a very clean and quiet RV park to stay at. The bathrooms are very dated, but functional and as clean as you could get them considering their age. This is a community park, so obviously, there is no money for the facilities. There was an extra fee for our two dogs and we had no problem with that. The issue we had was that you have to sign a release for the county, that says if they find that you have left your dogs unattended in the RV and you have left the park, that you allow the local Animal control to enter your RV, by force if need be, to remove your unattended animal from your RV and take the dog to the pound. Fortunately, it was fall, so we were able to take our dogs with us whenever we left the rig, in the summer this would have been a problem. - luvdoggiez

The location is nice and the staff are friendly and helpful; however, when a park states that they have wifi, it should be decent wifi. There was a bait and switch to the wifi; if you want "high speed" the charge is $1.95 an HOUR! The "slow speed" (their words) was miserably slow. And don't go with out texts because that's how you sign in, receiving a text of your sign in number. I had just gotten a phone with texts right before leaving to go there.
The manager told me when we were leaving, that she was going to talk with their internet guy about getting more bandwidth, so it may be better soon.
At night the gates are locked, so security was good. We were given a key, after a $5 deposit, so could get in the couple of nights we were out after 9 pm, when the gates are closed and locked.
Would have been nice to have a children's playground, for when our granddaughter came to visit, but we were told it had been taken out some time before and not replaced. - grandma w

Didn't realize the site included a separate dog pen which is awesome for those who have dogs, we don't do would have preferred to use the space. Unfortunately our VERY close neighbors didn't have a dog pen so we heard their dog bark, whine and scratching on the windows for over 9 hours! The staff was amazing though! - KFreitas

We spent 4 days here from Friday to Monday. I had originally requested a spot at the back in expectation of peace and quiet. When we hooked up power our surge protector showed problems with the ground and would not allow power to the trailer. I returned to the office and they gave me a new spot over the office. This spot was the 7th in a line of 9 sites, all vacant. After setting up we saw another party arrive 2 spaces away, shortly after that another party arrived to the site between us. We soon found out that these 2 rvs were a group. So here we are next to the group of 10 or so people occupying the 2 sites next to us with 6 vacant sites on the other side and another 8 or 10 vacant sites across the street. I have no complaints about the people next to us, they were not unreasonably noisy or up at late hours, it just seems that with all those vacant sites there was no good reason to put us all together. I think the neighbors would have preferred having some space as well. Overall, it's not a bad park but they really need to look into how they assign spaces when they have so many available.
AT&T cell coverage is decent if you are toward the front of the site. Towards the back it goes away completely. - bdo

Nice campground for children. Medium sized sites. WiFi good (but the campground was nearly empty). But we were there in late December, and none of the bathroom/shower buildings have ANY heat, making them almost useless. Luckily, our daughter lives close to this campground, so we could shower at her house. - Gozierdt

This is a county park so I was surprised as to the cleanliness of the place and the condition of the sites. Think of this as a camp ground with RV spaces. By that I mean RV parks normally have some lawn and paved roadways (at least the ones we go to). The roadways are paved but everything else is dirt, so if you have kids they will get dirty.
Stayed in Valley View 1. Valley View #2 has little shade. All except for 3 or 4 sites are very shady. The ones in the center area are totally shaded. There is a dump station at this park.
Lots of hiking trails and mountain bike trails to hike or ride. - Tom Sch

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. - Darwindog

We really enjoyed this little park. The sites are all covered in trees so you have lots of privacy. No fire pit in our site but we did have a big brick grill. Definitely a steep road to get to the park but we saw some big rigs while we were there so it's doable. Good location if you like hiking or wine tasting. - MadAdventures

Just a short walk down the hill to the beach. Our two dogs were able to use the private beach located directly across from the entry station. Didn't even know this existed, but the helpful attendant noted the beach north of Sunset is private and not subject to no-dog rules. From the park map, you cant' tell some sites, like ours, have 2 parking spaces right next to each other. Great for friends, not so much for strangers. Luckily we have good neighbors for the week, but just beware. The South Campground seemed best for trailers. The other two CG's were filled up with tents... and noise. To each his own, I guess. I would go back to Sunset SB. - FredjB

This is a very pastoral park, with a beautiful beach. The sunsets are spectacular. The sites have some space and foliage. You can have a campfire here. There are strawberry fields just adjacent to the campground. We rarely saw a park ranger, and the sites were not raked or cleaned between uses. We would return to this park. - Vic and Marsha

We stayed in site #25, which the camp host called "The Crown Jewel" of the park It was big, clean, and a short trail to an ocean overlook, with a drop dead view. The beach was quite a hike downhill. There are no amenities, other than the concrete pad and a fire pit. We were surprised at this, and landed there without water, because the CA Parks website said "developed". Now we know this does not mean hookups. Sunsets are amazing here, as the name would imply. The drive in is awesome, through farmlands and beautiful valleys. It is off the beaten path. Generators are against the rules after 8pm, as a ranger was quick to enforce. Nice place! - Dan Hannah

This was a great find! The park does have many full-timers on site, but it has a few spaces reserved for people coming for days, weeks, or months as well. It is only 2 blocks from the beach! It was perfect for a week at the beach. There are shops close by for food within walking distance as well. The spots are very close to one another. It is a large parking lot, but there are spots of grass for dogs, if you have them, just a short walk to the front of the park and of course, the beach. The owner, Chuck, is very accommodating and friendly. He was great all week while we were there. Everyone at the park is very friendly and helpful with directing you where to go in the area. We had a great experience, and we definitely recommend this park if you are anywhere near the area. It is affordable and just blocks away from the beach with full hook-ups! To note, the wifi is great! We work full time from our RV and we rarely use the park's wifi because it is too slow for the work we do on our computers, but this wifi was very impressive! If your travel trailer is over 31 feet long, I would request spot number 5 because it is one of the only spaces you could back directly into. If you are not an advanced level "reverser", unfortunately, I would think you would need to consider elsewhere. The spaces just cannot accommodate larger trailers. We have two slides that are across from one another and we were only able to pick one side to put out because the spaces just don't allow for the room. We were fine with this, and most do not have slides directly across from one another, so it shouldn't be an issue, but just something to be aware of. Also, the sewer hookups are the old school iron pipe, not threaded PVC, so be sure to put a rock on top of your sewer hose or use a donut to be sure it doesn't come out while you are dumping. Overall, a good park and one you should consider if you are wanting a spot close to beach near Santa Cruz. - gonecoastal724

Rate shown for 1 week stay divided by 7. Access road poor to fair pavement. Narrow park roads. I had to back up the exit route in order to get to my assigned site. Park sites are short and most will not accommodate RV lengths longer than 26-34 feet. The manager advised that only 7 of the sites are for transients. Our site was an unlevel paved back-in. More of a parking lot with lines there is no privacy between sites. All utilities worked. The cable TV selection was extensive and worked well. The Wi-Fi was intermittent and would cut out at times. Our site was close to the road and it got quite noisy at times. The laundry had 2 washers and 2 dryers. The wife said she was happy with their efficiency. Friendly accommodating manager. Still, we probably won't return due to the noise levels. - Onemoretrail

Small park with mostly long-time residents. They are parking spaces, really. But it's got clean restrooms, showers, laundry, reliable Wi-Fi and cable, and great location near, but not on, the beach. Very nice manager, and quiet, friendly park. Nearby restaurants and stores. - Wendywoods

Funny to rate a park a 9 and then cite so many flaws, but you are backed in about 100 feet from the ocean and that's what it's all about. The sites are slightly unlevel and you need at least two sewer hoses if you have a motorhome. Site was full of weeds and the road in is long overdue for a repave. None of it mattered when we were sitting around the camp fire watching the waves! - z32k12

Sea Cliff is a State owned/ran RV camping and day use area. We were in the full hook up area at the far north end of the park, and there are 3 dry camp lots, A,B and C as well. The dry camp spots are pretty much asphalt parking area with lines painted on the ground for your site. They were approximately 27X60'. The full hook up sites are narrow long sites with each one having 6" raised curb planters on each side. Unfortunately the planters were sand, and grassy weeds that were in dire need of cutting. The FHU sites had a heavy duty picnic table and raised fire pit at the front of the site. The sewer hook up was at the back of the sites, so bring lots of sewer hose. They are approximately 39X56'. Each site backs up to a public walkway that is about 8' wide and runs the length of the beach. On the other side of the walkway is the sand and the waves. On the front side of the sites is the road, and a embankment that's about 100+ feet tall. It used to be that there was zero cell signal in the camping area, but there is usable signal now probably from added cell towers in the area. The FHU sites are 30 amp only, but with a little conservation the 30 amp was not an issue. I love the relation of the sites to the beach, but the overall park is in dire need of maintenance. There is much weeding that needs to be done, the entrance road in front of the sites which is up against the embankment is over grown with trees and shrubs, and several large pot holes need filling in the road. The restrooms are typical for a public beach location, block walls and sparse on the inside. They are handicapped accessible, but there are NO hot showers available. Only cold water outdoor showers. Another point to keep in mind, they had me read and sign a small slip of paper upon checking in that advised among other things that there was a theft alert as chained generators and ice chests have been stolen. I very much like RVing at the beach, but as you can see there are trade offs. - SargeW

Great location. We dropped in on a sunday and they pulled names at random to fill the few locations that had hookups. we got lucky but declined since it was only good for one day. we stayed 3 days in a dry spot. there were plenty of those. there is only a $10/day difference for hookups. I think $20 discount for a dry spot would be more appropriate. a toilet "only" bathroom was close by but it became locked on the 2nd day. the next one was a bit of a hike. they were moderately clean...not too impressive. - D to the V

New Brighton is truly a hidden gem. In a few minutes you are in downtown Capitola and Santa Cruz. Full hook-ups are available but need to be reserved months in advance. 3 of the 4 restrooms have been updated but the one adjacent to us needed help. There is an incredible amount of space between each site which is very important if you like your privacy and solitude. It can get noisy however, but for the most part it was quiet after 10.00 pm. See tips below for more info. - JustImagine

Beautiful place to stay. Spent a great weekend there in June. The site we stayed at was a "dry" campsite, there are a handful of full hookup sites that look quite nice. You can also get a site by the cliffs for an additional fee. ($50 a nite). When walking around we noticed that there really isn't a bad site in the place. Reservations can be made up to 6 months in advance, which is recommended. The place was full. Highly recommended. - Tom_OC

Somewhat expensive, although the site was level and spacious with good hookups. This place has killer speed bumps that can't be avoided; so, bad that all the clothes came off the closet rod in back of the motor home. The feature that made it good for us was proximity to the location of a special event we were attending. Otherwise, we would think twice about staying here again. - MSTraveler

It is difficult to be objective about this park. While the place is technically clean and there are plenty of trees, there are a few negatives. First, this park scores a new high on the number of enforced rules. For example, the dumpster had a combination lock on it. Second, every blade of grass is off limits to pets as indicated by the numerous signs. Pets are expected to do their business on the asphalt. Just not a relaxing place. - Charisma1965

Very quiet and well kept with mature planting between large sites. Very helpful staff. Only slight negatives are WIFI is a bit hit and miss, and there are no fire pits, and only a couple of sites with BBQs. Overall very good. Best to book in advance as mainly a residential site with limited overnight sites available. - PCP
