We stayed here because 50a full hook up with concrete pad and between Marina and Napa. However, very tight, could not put awning out and very, very unfriendly toward dogs. When I checked in lady asked if I had a dog and I cheerfully answered yes. She said, "do not let him go to the bathroom anywhere in the park except the dog park (very tiny and across the park) or outside the park." Keep off grass signs everywhere. Between sites a strip of gravel maybe 5 ft wide by 10 ft long. If coach is long little space for car and no parking or you'll be towed signs in the parking spaces. We won't be back! We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Motorhome.

Only stay at this park if you plan on using it as a base camp. We stayed here for one-day trips to Big Sur, San Jose, and San Francisco. For this intent, the park is OK. Sites are pretty close together with concrete pads that were nice. No picnic tables or fire ring and a pathetic dog area that is a fenced-in all rock area. Nice grass areas with NO DOGS signs posted all over. Would not stay here again. A lot of other RV parks in the area that offer at least a picnic table, fire pit, and an adequate area for the dogs. We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here with a group. Very helpful and friendly staff. The club room was adequate with tables, chairs, refrigerator, stove with oven and microwave along with a big screen television. Parking on a concrete slab with power connections convenient. Group and overnight parking is close to the clubhouse. Only negative is that there are a few folks wondering around that were pretty strange. We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed overnight and were pleasantly surprised at how friendly, clean and welcoming the facilities were. It was very cold so we didn't swim or do much other than eat and sleep but the pool looked clean and the park is well cared for. It is in close proximity to all kinds of shopping. We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had stayed here before and it was OK- We stayed again with our RV club, and it was great! Much improved!!! They were happy to have us and it showed from check in, to the folks cleaning the spotless bathrooms, they were ALL happy to be there to take care of us. They sites are a bit skinny, and they have a number of live-aboards, but its clean and feels safe. If you like to shop- Gilroy has almost every store I could think of! Didn't get a 5 cause no hot tub. We already booked another visit in Dec. We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a week while visiting family in the Palo Alto and Monterey areas. We had a pull-through site that was very convenient to the nice bath and shower building and small dog run area. Utilities at the site are up to date, but quite far from hookup areas on most RVs. The park is mostly occupied by full-timers, but all RVs were kept up nicely. They keep a center lane reserved for overnighters and we had a site at the end of that lane. This park is very handy off Highway 101 and Highway 152. The one detracting feature is the occasional strong odor from one or more of the Gilroy food processing plants. We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Motorhome.

When we arrived we were handed a list of 36 rules! Within 2 hours of being there I saw 6 of the rules being violated without any enforcement. After that it got worse. There are many long term residents in this park - app 85%. They don't respect the space of the short term pull-throughs. We had people letting their dog poop on the small gravel patch that was our spot. Between the hours of 3:30 - 7 on weekdays and well beyond those times on the weekends, we were in the middle of an unsupervised skate park with 7-10 children of all ages running, skateboarding and biking through the streets and unoccupied sites. The long term people used the empty short term spots to park their extra cars and weren't happy about someone being in the spot. The office personnel was not friendly nor helpful. The showers were clean but spartan; only one hook and nothing else. The short term spots are all cement with a little bit of gravel separating some of the spots; not all. While each pull-through is long, there is only 7 feet between the spots so slides and awnings just miss each other. There is insufficient space to park one's car; so much so that doors are bashed into each other. This is not my definition of a "resort". The Good Sam rating of 9/9/8 is way too high for this park! Everything is a little insufficient in the park, but nothing is really awful. We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a clean RV park.The back in sites are narrow and really not long enough for 40+ rigs with 1 car much less 2. The park is probably 70% permanent. The parking for guests is non-existent since permanents with 2 cars are allowed to take all available parking for their 2nd car. The office personnel are rude. This park could be dynamite, but their parking situation is not acceptable. We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Motorhome.

I always enjoy stopping here when traveling thru the area. Although the park has many permanent residents they work in the area and are very quiet. The manager was very helpful and friendly. Pullthrus were easy to get in and their showers and laundry are spotless. We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is nice with all concrete and level sites, but sites do not fit big rigs very well and the trucks to pull them. Parking is an issue with notes on your car and threats that they will tow them away; yet there is no parking. Other than that and some families that have uncontrolled kids that run through your spot all the time, park is nice. Some staff is friendly and helpful while other staff is rude. I would stay here again as it is one of the nicer parks in the area, but there are some improvements that need to be done. The bathrooms and showers were cleaned everyday, and the pool was nice and cool. Also laundry is always crowded so be aware you may have to wait to get a machine or go somewhere else. Park is right next to all your shopping needs, so you never even really have to drive anywhere! We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

First impression: WOW! There are a lot of kids here! We arrived around 6:30 pm and found the office closed. There were plenty of late arrival packets on the door. We found a good sized pull through that easily accommodated our 33 foot class A with tow vehicle. The overnight spots were surrounded by long term residents. I would guess the park is seventy percent long term folks. Most sites were well kept. We had full hookups available with 50 amp electrical service. The restrooms were mostly clean although some mildew was developing on the grout in the men's shower area. There was sporadic train noise, but overall the park was fairly quiet. The lady at the office was very pleasant when we were checking out. The park is fairly pricy at $45 a night for a pull-through spot but overall a decent place to stay. We would probably return if needed when traveling through the area. We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Motorhome.

The manager is very friendly, professional, and helpful. The park is in excellent condition. There are quite a few monthly tenants but the place still has a "resort feel" to it because sites are kept clean and mostly uncluttered. Interior roads are a little narrow in the areas where monthly tenants are, but they keep many easily accessible pull through sites near the entrance of the park for daily/weekly guests. Spacing between sites was better than average for most sites. For example, awnings were not touching the rig in the next space; there is adequate room for slides and awnings. One "back in" section was a little tight...the rear of one rig was a few feet from the rear of another rig. The other sections had more space between rigs. It was surprisingly quiet for being as close to the freeway as it is. The pool area was clean and inviting. They have activities planned for the community if that sort of thing is important to you, and they are a friendly bunch. Rate reflects a discount for monthly stay.

This is a great place for a quick stay over on your travels up or down the 101 hwy. Clean and quiet, staff was helpful, great shopping nearby plus a Costco for filling your tank. We would stay here again. We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Motorhome.

Clean, about half of park seemed to be used by long term occupants. Our pad had cracked concrete, but was not a serious issue. Cable TV choices are limited but covers the major networks. Overall was a good park. Would stay there again if in the area. We camped at Gilroy Garlic USA RV Park in a Tent.
