36 RV Parks near Morgan Hill, California
May 2017 - $60.00
This is a park packed with full time residents, mostly field crop laborers. Jam packed! Spaces are on top of each other with no room to move! Neighbors came out to watch us squeeze in. Truck won't even fit into space. Had to ask neighbors to move a vehicle. Bathrooms and showers are clean and require a key, $10 deposit at front desk to get one. They close @ 6:30 PM. Will never be back. - dtdilts

Three week stay in the park. Mostly long-term residents. This is very middle of the road - do not expect a 'wonderful site', but it is absolutely adequate for a stay in the area for a few weeks. No problems at all, helpful staff. Residents keep to themselves but are polite. I would happily recommend this as a safe, clean, affordable spot in the Morgan Hill area. - Aphazia

I really did not enjoy this park. We have a 40 foot fifth wheel and the spacing between the sites and most of the roads are just too incredibly tight. It was just very uncomfortable staying here for a week. Most of the folks that are here are semi permanents working in the area....some take care of their site, others not so much. On the plus side, most of the sites have concrete pads and artificial grass. We just barely fit on our site and if I would have wanted to sit outside my feet would have been at my neighbor's sewer connection. We would not stay here again and would not recommend this park to those traveling. It is a shame really...this could be a decent enough place for an overnight, if not for being shoved in here like sardines! - perfectlygoode

I did not stay here! I called in the morning to make a reservation for a one night stay and was told to come on in, no problem. Upon arrival I was told they do not accept overnight, but would make an exception. I paid for one night, but after seeing the site which had garbage bags and a parked car blocking the entrance, I got a refund and moved down the road. - astreamer

Our one-night stay here was a mixed experience. The staff who run the park and who assisted us in the office (2 men, 2 women) were some of the nicest, most courteous people we ever have met. Friendly, outgoing, helpful. They graciously answered our questions, and I saw one of them going over a map with another guest to provide helpful directions. The park itself, however, is below average. It is not really a place for vacationers, most of the park is set up for permanent (or at least very long-term) tenants. In fact, the parkway lakes web site (not the KOA site) specifically states that they are looking for long-term residents and the park reflects this emphasis. A few of the long-term have nice sites, but many are occupied by older, run-down RV's. Some of these residents have installed storage bins and/or storage lockers in their sites, which creates an unkempt appearance. Some of the sites have two or even three cars parked in and around the RV, and the sites really do not have space for this. There are overflow parking sites around the office/pool area, and these were mostly full of residents cars, as well. As a result, much of the park has an over-crowded feel to it. I should emphasize that the park is not dirty, the office, pool, and laundry areas were neat and tidy and the grounds were clean. Our site was adjacent to some older units that looked as if they had been there a long time. The site was old asphalt, with a straggly strip of grass on one side. Cable was available, but I was not able to use it because the connection required a coax cable with a female end. I have a coax cable with two male ends - one for my RV and the other for the park connection, this has been the standard hookup in every other park I ever have stayed in. I was not able to access the Wi-Fi in my site or in the office area. One of the staff graciously tried to help me get connected, but we were unsuccessful. He would have been happy to help me further, but I did not have the time, we had to hit the road. Plus, I knew the problem was not with my laptop since I connected successfully at every other campground and several hot-spot locations during our trip. The bottom line, I would rate the staff as a "10" and the park as a "2". - bgw

We were very pleased with this campground. The manager and his team are just awesome. We can not wait to come back again. Has wide sites, a pool, and a stocked store. Lots of camping fun. - mmrvs02

This campground is over run with full time residents. Lots of people live here full time and even though the rules state that only camping items may be out, we saw couches, recliners, trash galore. Lots of run down rvs. Space is also limited and you are pretty much right on top of everyone. Restrooms were disgusting. If a shower is running, the toilets won't flush. Within 10 minutes of setting up, three sheriff cars came through. They said it was normal patrol. Not sure if that is more concerning or comforting. At least they were patrolling. We won't stay here again. Our rate was $0 since we are members of Thousand Trails. - Wendle123

I would change the name to Thousand Trails of DIRT & DUST. When called the resv. no. was told all sites had full hookups. I almost bought a membership but they could not find available membership site for the dates I wanted, but didn't. We did a non-membership. When we arrived, I confirmed we would have full hookups & was told all sites were W&E only. She said "This is a problem they have with the reservations people saying there are full hookups when we don't have them." There are 2 sewer dumps, but at the time 1 was closed to be pumped out but not sure when it would be. She said all sites are 1st come 1st serve & we could drive around & find the one we wanted. So, we unhooked, drove around. Main road is asphalt for a little ways & all roads are DIRT & I mean DIRT. All RV pads are DIRT. It is a dusty park. It looks old, run down, not kept up. From what we observed the 8 days we were there it is more of a place for locals to spend their vacations. 90%+ sites are treed, those in the very back that were $5 more per day because they have more grass, pull-thru & are open enough to use satellite. They are the same size as the cheaper sites. In California, grass is green maybe 1-2 mos. in the early spring then brown the rest of the year due to the lack of rain. Unless you are desperate & need a RV park to stay in the bay area & are not able to find space any place else, then stay here. Site G272 in back at end doesn't share parking space with another rv & less traffic. For this park being in a nationwide chain we were so disappointed in the quality of the park. As many parks as we have stayed in all over the US & Canada, including Alaska, this is the worst of all of them.
Thousand Trails is now on the bottom of our list of parks. No wi-fi, cable & cell coverage 1-2 bars & slow. Price per day - wkly rate $50 + $4 / day resort fee, 8th day $59 per day, + $4 / day resort fee Total for 8 days with tax $476.28 (doesn't include $5 per day extra for back site). - Sherib

Dusty, dusty, dusty even with the the 5 mph limit. Water and electric only with a dump station or a $25 on site suck-out service. Rangers at check in were very nice, and circled on a map where all the 30 amp services were located. Restrooms were cleaned every day but should be updated. Found a site with east shade and west shade in the late afternoon. Sat TV was not a problem. Stayed here for a week and did not elect to use the suck-out service but did unhook and dump. Will stay here again when in the area. - mdmnkcm

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. - LarryJohnston

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

This is primarily a residential RV park, with just a few spaces for transients. The space we were in didn't have sewer. They provided a free honey wagon service, but that still meant the day we left we either had to stop by the dump station or carry one day's worth of grey water with us (what we chose to do to conserve time instead). Same price, I think, as a space with sewer...?? It's a pretty park, more out in the country, and with a nice creek walk adjoining the campground (beware of little patches of poison oak in some spots on the sides of the path, often blending in with the wild berry bushes...!). However, we probably wouldn't stay there again. Mostly because, as it is right now, this is NOT a pet-friendly place. No pets are allowed on any of the various grass patches or fields. They are allowed on the creek path, but it is far enough away to be inconvenient for quick potty outings (like at bedtime). From talking to a resident, I understand the reason for this is past bad pet owners, leaving dog piles that kids ended up playing in! That is awful and incomprehensible to us responsible, common sense/decency pet owners! And of course we end up paying the price for their bad behaviors!! The wifi was not so great, kept getting dropped. So it's a pretty nice place with nice people so I don't want to rate it badly, but we won't be back as our animals are a fundamental part of our family life, and this place does not currently accommodate them. - CarrieBearie

Very nice RV resort. We stayed here one night and would definitely stay again as there are not a lot of parks near the SF/Sunnyvale area near where our friends live. This resort has very nice clean concrete pads, nice landscaping, good utilities, wi-fi, great service and lots of amenities in the clubhouse/pool area. Near a golf course and right next to a very nice bike trail system that goes for miles and miles along the creek and beyond. Close to Los Gatos which has great restaurants. Wish they would/could purchase the property between the resort and the river in order to gain better access to the trails and riverfront area as right now it is very dry scratchy primitive trails, but at least you can get back there through the gates. Would also be nice if they added some cottages for our friends who do not have an RV to stay close by when we visit the area. - bradfeldt

The park landscaping and cleanliness is excellent. There are many long-term occupants, but it doesn't particularly detract from the park appearance. Sites, however, are extremely close and we had to be careful how we parked our car next to the motorhome in order to be able to open the motorhome door. Despite their insistence otherwise, wifi is terrible except in the middle of the day on weekdays and cable was barely watchable - we weren't the only ones with our over-the air antenna up! It's very noisy, both road noise and trains. I would in no way characterize this as a resort. - ghopgd

Very nice park. Concrete pads. Fairly wide sites. Cable and wifi not good. No ESPN and pathetically slow wifi. No tables. If you want one it's an extra $5!! I guess $75 isn't enough money for a site with a table?? - niemeyer53

Had a pleasant overnight stay at the RV section of the park with hook-ups in July on a Sunday evening which was very quiet after the weekend crowd had left for home. Brought the kayak to do some fishing while my girlfriend hiked the nearby trails with our dog on leash. The rangers are helpful and courteous, they also enforce the rules when someone parks illegally makes noise after quiet hours. Bathrooms are clean and well-kept. Most all sites have picnic tables and a fire ring, sites do not have sewer connection but there is a dump near the entrance. The road into the camp has a couple of tight turns but easy for our 17 foot travel trailer. This place gets crowded during the Spring and Summer months on the weekends but is a joy to stay Sunday-Thursday if you can make it out. Cellular and data coverage is spotty though Verizon gets a signal while AT&T does not. - CasitaSanJose

Great camping area. Lots of wildlife too. Rangers keep things running smooth. I like that they make people follow the rules. Excellent shower facilities. Can also launch boats/kayaks, etc. Except for no cell service, this is great campground. - Darwindog

This is a spacious, out of the way park. There were only a few campers there in July. The road leading to the campground is narrow with some hair pin turns, but can be navigated with up to a 30 ft. RV with a toad. - WyomingFord

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

Sites are concrete with gravel between, minimal landscaping. Sites are "slide to slide", minimal room to park a long tow vehicle or toad, no patios (no room) or picnic tables. Good satellite viewing of southern sky for pull-through sites. There is a lot of road noise all day and night. No dogs allowed on grass, there is a dog park but it is full of dog poop. No coach washing but you can have a service come out to wash your coach. Funny thing is the service uses the parks water so what is the difference if you wash or service, I smell something fishy here. They could charge like other parks do to allow owners to wash thier coach, revenue in. Lots of permanent residents. - SStapleton

Awww... the smell of Garlic! It was present, but didn't bother us at all. This park is paved, with sufficiently level concrete pads. There are a lot of full time residents. As a two day visitor, I felt welcome. The location was good, with lots of stores nearby. The office closes at 5:30 PM, which was before we arrived the first night. Late check-in procedure was no issue. Sites are long enough, but tight (in that neighbors are right there!). I could not extend my awning due to a tree (I could have moved the RV further forward to account for the tree, but then it would have hit my neighbors RV who parked in his site crooked to fit his attached trailer). - Zeltar

Well kept, quiet Park. Staff did a great job at providing information and recommendations for the local area. Our site had shade thanks to a large tree. Level concrete pads and hook-ups where they are easy to use. Pet friendly - take you dog to the office for a treat. Only negative - no picnic tables. - Champ203

We chose to stay here because of the access to the surrounding areas. The sites are very close together. It did not allow us to park our towed vehicle except right outside our door, which meant no place to even sit outside or access our storage bays. Our RV is 40' and we were given a back-in spot. There are a few trees but no grassy areas at the sites. It seemed there were plenty of permanent residences. It was easy off the freeway, it is located right behind a huge shopping center (Target, Kohl's, Michaels, BevMo, and restaurants). - Traveling Around

Rate is based on weekly rate. Park is almost entirely permanent residents. I was jammed in next to the dog walk area, which is next to the rest rooms. I stepped off my doorstep literally into dog XXXX. There was no room to park my truck at my site. The office said I could park up front near the office, which I declined. I was then told it would be OK to park in one of the two spaces reserved for the rest rooms. These two spaces were sized for Honda Civics, so if I left for the day and someone else parked in one of the spaces, I had to wait for them to leave before I could park for the night.
Interior trees need to be trimmed. I had to pull out of my site at an extreme angle in order not to have a tree branch hit my AC units.
The interior roadways are very crowded with vehicles.
I cannot recommend this park and will not stay here again. - GoPackGo

A very full park at our week visit time with many long term residents. It was crowded. We enjoyed the well behaved resident children's antics, regard the staff as professional, and helpful in directing us to a resident that cared for our young pet while we were away on day trips. - SDCampowneroperator

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
