Very nice people. This park is all gravel with very narrow sites. I actually thought it was a campground until i got here. Most of the campers here are permanently set up on a site with storage buildings. - Rweaver

This park is old and doesn't look good on approach. It's not cheap either. But it's the only one anywhere near Menlo Park including going north or south on 101. The back area is really well maintained with very good hook ups, power pole is in good condition. But what really made our stay exceptional is the manager and her husband!
The first night we lost 12V power. It's amazing how dependent a coach is without it. We had 110 power. We called the office on Saturday morning to ask about a mobile repair. There's only one. They tried to get out but were just too busy and could come only on Monday. This manager gentleman, who has considerable RV service knowledge, came to us and diagnosed our problem. He spent at least two hours testing and another hour making a temporary fix. We would have been there a least 2-3 more days, stressed not knowing where the problem was. But he took his personal time to figure out the likely cause, allowing us to reach our destination and get repairs completed while not being in transit. THANK YOU! - Bobcat1

We have "kids" at Stanford and so have stayed here a handful of times. This trip, we are in the expensive, pull-through way back.......on the salt flat bay. It's quiet with a pretty nice view for being in the city. Bathrooms in the expensive seats are newer, high end and spotless. No complaints with sites. They've cleaned up the main resident's section that you drive through to access the rear for overnighters. Staff has turned over, and I miss the adorable older woman I used to interact with in the office. New staff not so sharp. Can't reserve on-line, rarely get through on phone, and took TWO days to return my call. The Wi-Fi is terrible. You get a coupon and, after going through a drill to "register," you might slowly get connected,.......but I never actually got service. I called the vendor's 800 # and, after a 10 min. wait, got some guy who didn't care and blamed it on the fact that the park's bandwidth is insufficient for the number of users (It was mid-day!!!!). Verizon Mi-Fi has rescued me, but I really feel abused to pay $95, and have no internet. If you don't need a pull-through you can probably save ~$15 a night, but you might want to try to get a key for the bathrooms in the back which are a big redeeming factor. - Diesel24J

Alright folks, if you are coming here in an R.V. for a short stay you can't beat it. It has no picnic table, no fires, no club house, and some views; it is an urban R.V. park. You probably aren't planning on spending a lot of time in your rv. You've come here for some specific reason and not to go Glamping.
With that mindset this place is excellent. The sites level up very easily. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry rooms were spotless and are cleaned daily. The showers were fully heated and had plenty of hot water. All the folks I met were extremely friendly and helpful. The staff was on the ball and very pleasant.
As previously mentioned the short term sites are on the bay side of the park and ours had a great view of the bay and the surrounding mountains.
We did not try the park wifi but my Verizion Mifi worked great. Getting in and out of the sites was a dream and there was plenty of room for coach and the the toad. The utilities provided clean 50 amp power, and simple sewer hook up. ( if you find it draining your tank a bit slow loosen the cap on top of the island). There's cable hook up but we spent so little time in the coach we didn't hook up to it. We paid a bit less than $73 for a 7 day stay. The daily rate is $85. The front part of the park is for long term residents and the sites are clean and not cluttered with all the units I observed in very good condition.
We will stay here next time we come to the Bay area. - pumper9x9

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

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

OK first of all if you get a RV spot in San Jose, lucky for you. This place is somewhat quite, clean, and friendly. I was barely able to fit my 35 foot rv in my spot but the staff was very helpful in assisting me. Most of the RV are permanent residents and really nice folks. The wash room and showers were really clean. You are near a recycling plant, so there is some noise and intense smells at times. But its the best deal in town for sure. - Vanslam

Would never stay here again. Got the last site in what seems to be mostly fulltime campers. Odd set up and needed extension and level blocks. Didn't feel safe because of unsavory characters and the neighborhood wasn't the nicest. Showers cost. Not good value for money at all. Manager was abrupt and rude. No amenities for the high charge. Don't bother coming here unless you're desperate. - kiwitravelers

This park would rate much higher if it weren't for the noise at night. Starting about 3 AM the recycle trucks arrived and dumped their loads. Now, if you sleep like my wife, or wear a hearing aid, I can highly recommend the park. Showers were older, but spotless, including shower curtains. The rest of the bathroom was extremely clean. The manager was kind and made sure we had good instructions when calling in for reservations. Unlike a previous poster, we did not experience a smelly environment from the recycle center. - JDRobar

This park is pretty with only a couple of trailers left, full of motorhomes and fifth wheels. They have very specific parking rules which required us to park our dually next to a bush, that scratched it. Nice but cramped laundry.30 amp electricity kept going off and on. No breaker to turn off electric so must hot connect. Sewer is not a proper fit so it leaks. No recycling available. Very expensive, not near groceries or shopping. In industrial area of town surrounded by poor neighborhoods. WiFi virtually non-existent, no cable and no antenna stations available. Sites and streets are paved with many many very high speed bumps. No discounts. - DRV

This RV park in silicon valley is clean! This park appears to have its own cc&r's and is better for it. Pool and gazebo surrounded by green grass. Postal service is evidenced by a row of mailboxes at main office. There is an electric lawn mower to borrow to keep up your very own 10'x 5' strip of green space should you reside here for over 2 weeks. It offers spaces to one-night travelers too. This is a nice, clean, groomed trailer park where you want to live while earning a living here in San Jose. I didn't want to leave. It is nice for city camping in your travel trailer & I would go back. It is just a few miles from World Famous Henry's High Life restaurant and HP Concert Pavilion - CasaRoll

Located in an industrial area with good access to the freeway. Park is very clean and well kept and has many long term/permanent residents. Dogs are limited to 20 lbs. The downside is that they do not take credit cards, cannot arrive after dark and must have a reservation. This park is not a resort, but a convenient place to stay for those visiting friends/relatives in the San Jose area. - nkwazi

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

We stayed here because none of the other parks had 3 consecutive nights available. Our first time in the area. Sites are large and level and gravel. No shade. Can get windy here so mind your awning! Pub-style restaurant adjacent to park. We didn't eat there. Half mile walk to beach. Lots of permanent or long-term residents but surprisingly quiet. Park is next door to a warehouse of some kind so we could hear their PA system. Spots farther away may not. Bathrooms/showers were individual units each with a toilet, shower, sink, hooks for clothes and towels and a small table. Really nice! Large laundry room that also housed bathroom/shower stalls. These were a bit smaller with no tables. Each site had a small plastic table with chairs and fire pit. Firewood is sold at the general store/registration for $10 a bushel. - Linda and Terry

DUST - fine powdery dust ends up everywhere in your RV. Site was very unloved (front tires were 4 inches off the ground ) horrible place. Sewer hook up is 30 feet from average RV outlet. - Unbiased
Aug 2016 - $85.00
WARNING: Do not stay here and spend your money elsewhere. The camp sites are gravel/woodchips and there is dust everywhere. The RV got very dirty quickly. We had panhandlers and homeless people from around town come to our spot demanding handouts. They also camp out in the bathrooms.The drunks that live in this park will scream at all hours of the night, throw up everywhere and will accost you as you take an evening walk. Beer bottles, broken glass, and dog poop is everywhere.There are scattered islands of shantytowns, broken cars and motorcycles that are constantly being worked on throughout the night. When they DO work they drive too fast and throw the rocks that make up their makeshift road all over your vehicles and RVs.It is nowhere near the actual beach.
Bed bugs are embedded in the laundry facility. Plan your trip accordingly outside and around this town. It's a tourist trap. - Outdoor explore

We are in smaller travel trailer so we rely on the campsite showers and facilities. I got a call less than 1 day before arrival that they had no laundry or shower facilities. I could not find a place to rebook in this area as I had made my reservations 5 mos ahead of time. I asked for a discount but they refused. The place has very tight spaces that are not really numbered. It is very run down with garbage on the sites. Site was dead, clumpy grass and broken, uneven concrete and stones. They had gardens but they are all overgrown. We were told there was cable TV but there was none on our site. Then, on the last day, I found the hookup buried in the weeds in the garden. The only thing goings for this place were it was next to a golf course and you could walk to the beach. They had a nice place for the dog to relieve itself. This could be a lovely campground. It has the location. It needs its grounds cleaned up. The campsites need new picnic tables and the gardens need to be cleaned up. The campsites need to be repaved. The building they call a bathroom needs a complete face lift in the outside. - Jana Bair

Pretty basic park. Streets are narrow. Not easy to get into the spots. The people were so friendly and helpful. People we went with wanted to stay an extra day. Initially there were no vacancies. But it all worked out and they were able to stay. Thanks to the wonderful people in the office. - Sili

Way overpriced for the amenities! No WiFi. Trash trucks or something beeping at 5:00 and 6:30 in the morning, twice in one week. Untidy construction bins in front of our site. We have a 40' motorhome and they put us in a very short space. We had to remove bikes before we could park and we can't open the awning because of the tight location. Even though the surrounding area is beautiful, I wouldn't recommend this RV park. - Brenda Boudreaux
