We came to this county RV park as many other RV parks in the Bay Area closed down. The RV sites are difficult to level and only for smaller units. We have a 27 ft class C so it was OK lengthwise but had a hard time to level. The county park closes its gate at sunset but we were given access code to get in at night. Unfortunately the code we were provided were wrong as they did twice. We were stuck at one night for more than half an hour. The camp host never answered calls or knocks on the door of his/her motor home. Other campers told us they never saw the camp host anyway. The ranger station was not attended so you do everything online. We will never stay here if there is another alternative in the Bay Area. The high housing cost has driven most of the RV park out unfortunately. This county park has no incentive to improve its service. - hotpepper

This is a Santa Clara County campground in a park. They have 15 RV sites for smaller rigs. The official policy is no RVs over 31 feet, but we have seen much longer RV’s. There is water and 30 amps at the site and a dump station. Larger RV’s (and perhaps smaller as well) will have an issue with the road into the park. The last two miles on Sanborn Road is very narrow with some overhanding limbs and a one-lane bridge. It is also very steep coming up the hill into the park. The dump station is very, very tight. The sites are all back-in and fairly short and not very level. This is a campground that I would recommend for smaller RV’s with a sense of adventure. Once you get past that, it is a wonderful, quiet campground with great access to the Bay Area. You can make reservations but we have never, ever seen it full. If you do not make reservations, you have to pay day-by-day; a bit of a pain but it works. The gates close at sundown so it feels secure. If you talk to the right person, you can get the gate code to come in after dark. The park is a bit strange in that it gets some folks camping because they have no other housing, but it has never been a problem for us. Our Verizon phone and data card did not work in the park because of the terrain. There are some sites where you can pick up satellite. - TheJim

We stayed here 1 night to attend a concert down the street. Can't reserve till 14 days prior, we did, but they didn't have any record of it. Can't check in till 5pm, Must leave by 11am. They put us in the parking lot backed up to the trees. Had to move a bunch of cars in the lot to get us in. Cable tv had 3 channels. WiFi was free for an hour, then $6.00 a day! Restrooms need a lot of TLC before my wife would use it. Would only stay here again to attend another concert. - Tredguy

This is not a real RV park, it is a day use park for picnics. The road in is narrow and twisty, the sites are VERY short and not level. The bathrooms are not cleaned daily and old. Avoid this if your in anything longer then 10'. They don't tell you this when you talk to them. We stayed in a 38' motor home, never again. You have to wait till the day use parking lot clears out before you can get in or out of your site. Severe steep driveway. - wrready2

Pleasant location. However the site was not flat, which made for awkward sleeping. This was surprising as it is tarmac all the way through. Restrooms and showers needed a LOT of work (holes in the walls, cramped and dirty). Wifi was available for $6. This site has a lot of potential as it is beautifully situated in the woods and right by a stream, and has all facilities available. However the problems mentioned above mean I can only give it a 6 out of 10. - wicksee

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

I was in a level, dirt, back in site. I did not have to level the trailer side to side. Most sites were large with a picnic table and food storage cabinet. There is also a fire ring. Site was a mixture of sun and shade. - travelcouple

For RVs, this isn't an ideal experience. Many of the sites are not level, there are no RV conveniences like hookups, wifi, etc. But, every site comes with a picnic table and a fire ring (capable of BBQ'ing). Some sites are more spacious, some more private. The showers are coin operated: 25 cents per minutes. There is no RV water fill-up nor dump site. (You can use the Brighton Beach State Park dump site as part of your Henry Cowell fee however). Site #20 is very much not level, and right next to a trail head. Although it's close to the restrooms, it's best for tent campers. We moved over to site #27 and loved it for both it's openness and privacy (it's a large site). Lots of shade! - SLOman

Henry Cowell is a beautiful park, very close (10 minute drive) to Santa Cruz and even closer to Felton (grocery stores, gas, etc.). The campground is old and the sites vary a lot as to size, level, etc. We barely fit in our site (#39) but there were several that would have fit our 31-foot fifth wheel just fine. It is a very beautiful place to stay with hiking trails, nearby redwood grove and reasonable privacy and quiet. - MrSunshine

We stayed around the 4th of July. We had a nice semi-secluded site near the back of the park. About the only one I could see, as all of the others are just one after another in a straight line. By and large the park was quite. Very close to Henry Cowell State Park and Roaring Camp. Easy drive to Santa Cruz. More of a jumping off site. Certainly would return for access to above mentioned attractions, if we could get same site! - Burnking

This is not a big park, about 100 sites total and that includes about a dozen tent sites. The park does live up to it's name though, massive redwood trees, some 300' tall and thousands of years old are throughout the park. We had 5 in our site alone. We picked this park not only because it has full hook ups, but also because it has a variety of sites that can fit a rig 45' in some of the sites. The park is a bit short on amenities, no pool or spa, no workout room, and the playground is a basketball hoop, and a tether ball pole. There is a clubhouse with a pool table and an up-rite piano, and river access on the back of the park to the San Lorenzo River. The park is pet friendly, but there is no dedicated dog area. Many of the sites are pretty close together as they did their best to make as many spots as possible in a small park. Made reservation 4 months ago and was able to get us one of the nicest sites in the park. Our site, #62 would easily fit a 45' rig. The curb side of the site has the redwoods and a large buffer area to boot. Due to the giant redwoods satellite reception was impossible. There is cable TV here, 25 channels to be exact. Picture quality ranged from good to fair. WiFi was also free, but the ability of it to keep up with the demand was sketchy. There are two sets of restrooms, one set is handicapped accessible, the other is not due to small doors and a 6" step into the shower area. In spite of all this, I liked the park because of the ambiance provided by the giant trees and river flowing in the back. There is a steep slope to get down to the river that can be tricky. - SargeW

We truly enjoyed our week-long stay at Santa Crux Redwoods RV Resort. The campground is clean and the staff is wonderful. Sites are spacious for CA and we loved the trees. The WiFi is excellent. We will definitely return! - Josh H

Every spot had been raked before occupancy. Never seen that before. Couldn't have been friendlier. Kinda pricey but...peace and quiet that you can't buy. Could hear the local Redwood tour train several times a day. - wynnkin

We stayed 10 nights in site 43 which was nice. Site had a wooden deck area which worked out great since it rained half the time we were there. Campground is located in the woods, so lots of shade. Some sites very close together. No satellite available but campground's cable worked good. Campground quiet since not full. Convenient to shopping. - Lover of Cairns

We have stayed here before because it's small and right next to the state park. It's always been nice but this was an amazing stay. The new owners (from last year I think) have brought in a super sweet couple that are cleaning the place and the wife runs the office now. With all the cleanup of this park and the hosts that were so friendly we had a wonderful stay. By the way we absolutely love staying by the fireplace in the redwood tree. You have to deal with sewer dumps because the sites next to the fireplace don't have sewer but it's worth it. - Mmlaugh

Great place friendly helpful staff, guided me into spot. WiFi is typical of most campgrounds in and out. Didn't use the pool but looked good. Henrey Cowell Park is within walking distance in the back but I preferred driving a few blocks to the main entrance - Tayloriver

We love staying here. It's so close to be able to do and see so much in the Santa Cruz area and along HWY 1. It's very family friendly as well as pet friendly. The camp hosts are very helpful and friendly as well. The sites we stay in are large with tables and fire pits. You can't go wrong staying here. - RVKat

A wonderful RV camp grounds among the Santa Cruz Redwoods. Our campsite was very nice and large. The camp sites are kept very clean and the park hosts drive through often to check on everyone. The showers are very clean and free. They have a heated pool, baseball diamond, basketball area, ping pong and pool. Our grandkids rode their bikes everyday we were at camp until it got dark. This park is perfect for kids and the trails to explore are very close to the park. We will totally return to camp here again! Thank You! - RVKat

This is a more of a permanent resident park than for travelers. The owners were very accommodating and friendly as was the manager. But the available space(s) was very short (we have a 36' fifth wheel with a deck) and even backed up as far as we could go, without the deck open, we were still sticking out into the road a bit. The trash and recycling (which was next to us) was seriously overflowing and very smelly. The bathrooms were locked (they supplied a key for a deposit) and showers were coin operated. It was not clean and it was very cold - quite open to air flow. Only one of the three showers worked and two out of the three toilets were operational. On the plus side, it was a few miles out of town (Santa Cruz), wooded around the exterior and we were on the creek - so it was a fairly quiet setting (just some road traffic on the other side of the creek). Our hotspot (Verizon) did not work and we could not pick up any OTA TV stations by antenna. Another camper (about 30') came in the first night but left the next day. It is a difficult park to maneuver in with anything longer than about 30'. - mountainwinddancer

This park is different, up a very rural road and on the side of a mountain. It used to be a church camp before it was an RV park, aand they still have a chapel and do weddings, the sign says. It is mostly about 30 extended-say sites but also has just a few overnight openings, so call first. Some spaces have no sewer, ask first... but there is a dump station. It has extensive hiking trails (poorly maintained) that connect with a large public park adjacent. Very quiet, natural forested setting, nice interesting full timers and staff. Maintenance is a bit behind, the pool is disabled restrooms partially disabled, But this is so informal and friendly, a lovely setting, with easy 2 mile Santa Cruz town access. We stayed a week (7th day free) to rest and read and enjoy the great camp atmosphere. - solarsteve4x4

The other reviews are quite old. Evidently this park has gone down hill since those reviews. The park was in bad shape with many old, old rigs, some of them abandoned, slowly rotting into the ground. There were also old abandoned cars covered with weeds and vines. With no wifi, no TV and no cell coverage the price was outrageous. The owners are very sweet and helpful. I would definitely not stay here again. - Trek Across America

Sites are for Elk's members only. No sewer hookups is a big minus. The facility has a large pool available and showers, steam room, exercise room. The park manager is very aggressive. - firedguy

Actually we did not stay here but I went to this location to check it out and see about a reservation.
The website says "Upgraded and Reopened!
Guidelines RV must be no more than 20 years old or newer. After 30 days guest must vacate the grounds for a minimum of 24 hours before reapplying to return. Spaces rented on a first come, first served bases."
In addition, there is a telephone number, email address and a button you can click for a RESERVATION REQUEST.
I arrived at the RV Park and was I disappointed to see it. First of all, it has not been "Upgraded" as the website said in what I saw. It looks like it has been the same for many, many years. It is dusty. Next, the RV's that were there looked like most of them had been there for more than 30 days, several months or longer. I knocked on the door of the manager who is in a Foretravel that must be 30+ years or older but no answer. Went to the assistant manager, his motorhome looked as old or older, he said they do not take reservations, it is a first come basis and in the past year they may have had 10 vacancies. They don't try to make people leave after 30 days as that is to much trouble for them and the people in the rv's. They could if they wanted to. To much paperwork on their part.
So, don't count on what the website says in this case, it is not true at all. - Sherib
