7 Parks near King City, California
Oct 2014 - $25.00
This is a very nice county park situated in the Salinas Valley. The sites are narrow, but shaded and the hook-ups are good but only 30 amp. Sat TV may be difficult as most of the FHU sites are shaded. The posted rate is a weekly rate and during the "off season" which is Oct 1 to May 1. The park is used by many groups but much of the time it is empty. Difficult to find a Ranger and you pay at the CG entrance via an envelope and Pipe deposit system. Nice Ag Museum on the property and lots of space for day users near the CG. - nmunozjr

A county park with RV hookups. Great old mature trees offer shade on many but not all sites. Some paved, some grass sites. Barbecue grills at each site plus picnic table. Biggest negative is that sites are really close together, unfortunately. However, this park seems to not be full most of the time so you can probably spread out if it is not a busy weekend. - Kate F

Ok for a stop over, but pricey for a county park. Sites are level asphalt but dirt in between makes it very messy. More like camping than RV park. Large trees make nice shade but make for bad satellite reception. No cable. Tight for big rigs, but doable. No Wi-Fi, but there is a booth for Ethernet cord. Water and power good. Not much in way of shopping in KC. Safeway and some mini marts. Salinas and Paso Robles are closest big towns. Relatively safe and quiet. Would only stop here again if a necessity. - Retired CSI Guy

This is my first week and so far, I am pleasantly surprised! Though park is next to a truck stop, I feel extremely safe with video cameras and on site friendly management. This place was recommended by correctional officers and fellow nurses. With a general store and award winning cafe, one can grab a snack or drink, even a hot meal. Even though I go home when I am off, it is nice to have a home away from home while I am working. Thumbs up and great value!!! :-) - Nurse Joslin

Mostly filled with permanent campers. Lady who checked us in had no personality, park workers friendly and full of information. There were two long pull through sites, we had one of them. There is grass by the sites. The park is surrounded by farm fields; when we were there it was very windy and dusty. Oh yes, a nearby train track and HWY 101 are a 100' away. An OK overnite stop, but price seemed out of line. - renodick

Not much has changed since the 2011 review. The reception help was very friendly and helpful. Free, weak Wi-Fi. Showers are metered (have to pay: 50 cents/5 min). Sites level on tightly packed gravel. Connected to motel and truck stop, has pool. A good overnight stay. Stop in at the mini-mart to register. Truck stop gasoline less expensive than most in the area. - LeeCA

I agree with the other reviewers that you could not ask for a nicer campground. Everything was up to date and continually cared for by the wonderful staff. However, since we camped here for a week the wind was unexpected and totally disruptive to our plans to sit outside, watch TV and enjoy a drink. The winds started around 1pm every day and didn't let up until late evening, one night it was after 1am! We never put out our awning and I was worried that our slide covers would tear due to the winds. The wind was quite cold so make sure you bring appropriate clothes. - cakvj

Wow, where to start. Maybe with, after six years of virtually full-time RVing, this RV park now ranks in at least our top five!!! The only issue I could see is the wind (expect sustained of probably 30-40mph from about 2pm to 8pm), and that is just the way it is in that area. As long as you know in advance, prepare, and aren't planning on hanging outside your RV mid-day, it's not that bad. But the place is super easy to get to, off the 101 highway. It is VERY nicely set-up and maintained. It has one of the best dog parks we've ever seen - our dogs took full advantage of it (although our doggies didn't require the great DIY dog wash station). And the people who run the place are some of the nicest, most helpful and accommodating people we've ever run into at a campground!! They make you feel like you're at home the moment you land. There's actually a nice view of pretty hills and mountains from the campground. A little highway noise but not too bad. Laundry has three washers and three dryers that all worked great and you can't beat the price of $1 per each!! Trash and recycling neatly and handily located for each aisle. The rate for one of the few back-in sites (most are pull-thrus) was $44 but $40 with Good Sam. We had an end site (which offer nice almost mini-parks) and got that great view too! We also filled up on propane while there - yet another service they offer. We stopped there because it was convenient and sounded good and so we could visit Pinnacles National Park (great place with some fun trails - just research beforehand which entrance you need for which trail!!). Hope they're able to get their air museum up and running soon! But we highly recommend this park and will certainly stay there again if ever in the area again! - CarrieBearie

This park is beautiful and pristine clean! The landscaping puts many for-fee gardens to shame. The friendly and welcoming staff is constantly working to maintain the facility in mint-clean condition. The sites are large and made private with evergreen tree plantings. There is a pool and spa, exercise room, laundry, dog park with a dog wash, a rec building and dumpsters with recycling containers. This is an excellent facility and we could not find anything to criticize! We HIGHLY recommend it. - Shep and Laura Peck

This is a military park and is restricted to military personal and certain civilians. This is about the most basic park you will find and is the epitome of dry camping. There are some defined spaces and an almost unlimited overflow area that is just as good as the defined spaces. The area has a fair amount of oak trees if you need shade. - Gary B

Rate is based on Golden Age Passport. We arrived about noon on a Sunday. Most all campers had departed though the remnants still there seemed to have been a noisy group. By nightfall, all weekend campers had left and the campground contained only three campers, all arrived during the afternoon and all departed by early morning. Gang symbol XIV noted scrawled on a fixture in a lavatory. Lavatories and showers are tiled but by end of day not very clean. Well laid out campground with paved interior road. Rather tight with boulders on side of road but sites are angled in a way that backing in with a motorhome is easy. Might be more difficult with a 5th wheel. Great place for hiking. The major problem is gnats and flies that makes it difficult to stay outside. - artiemeek

Great campground with a couple of wonderful camp hosts. They treated us like family. The sites were large and lots of shade. Great place to bring your family. The hosts helped us set up our fifthwheel and told us about the places to hike. Will return here again. - rosetammy48

Recreation.gov site said this campground was great for all size RVs. Don't believe it. We had a 37' fifth wheel and it was very difficult getting out of the campground. The campground is a pleasant 40 minute drive on a curved road from the 101. If you go through Greenfield, like we did (following GPS) you'll go across a one lane bridge which we could barely make the corner onto to. When we arrived we found that the campsite we reserved was double booked, but there was another one we could use that was easy to get into. Turns out we never could have backed into the site we had reserved (site # 1, advertised for a 50' unit). They gave us site #3. Most all the sites, including #3) are laid out backwards. The picnic table, fire ring and flat spot are on the wrong side of the unit. Our door opens to a wooden post. We will not come here again. - R&S

This is a nice, quiet NPS campground with 30A electric only for RVs. There is a RV dump station, and a water-bib adjacent to site 86 (lucky us!). Sites are ample although I wouldn't call them spacious. Some sites obviously better than others. Staff was friendly, and we definitely would stay here again. - CO2RV

Stayed at the Pinnacles Campground over Presidents Day weekend 2016. The campground was full. All the RV sites are in Loop "D" which is close to the entrance. The RV sites have power (110 plugs, 30A and 50A all in the box). There are non-hose threaded drinking water spigots throughout the loop that can be used to fill containers and one hose threaded spigot near the loop entrance that can be used to fill a water tank. A dump station (free) is available.
The sites are ample, we didn't feel crowded at all. Some sites have more shade than others. The sites on the outside of the loop that run along CSR 25 seem to have more shade and the most room. We have a 31" motor home. Our site could have easily handled a much larger MH.
The park is clean and mostly well maintained. The picnic table at our site could use a little TLC. All the sites have a large metal fire ring with a BBQ grate.
The park is operated by a concessionaire, not the National Parks Service, but is patrolled by NPS Rangers and campground staff.
The bathroom/shower is a short walk from Loop D. Two showers. Water pressure was good and the water was plenty warm. There is a sandy gravely area in front of bathrooms which tracks into the bathroom. The floor is dirty immediately after being cleaned .. which seems to occur on a regular basis. There are no hooks or shelves to hang/place toiletries.
The office/store/visitor center is at the entrance. They were well stocked with most everything you might need. There is also a pool which opens sometime around April.
Everybody from the NPS staff, the rangers and the campground staff was friendly and helpful.
Something to consider, if you can do without the electrical, a lot of the tent sites are beautiful, secluded and very shady.
In addition to the camp site fee you must pay a National Parks entrance fee, it was $15 per vehicle per week during our stay.
Campfires may or may not be permitted depending on the fire danger. If campfires are allowed, bring your own wood!!! Firewood is $11 for a small bundle if purchased at the camp store.
NPS runs a shuttle to the trailheads.
We were very happy with our stay and intend to return. - Jmaellis
