Great roomy spots with pull-thru 50 amp service. Nice big pool. Verizon and Dish worked well. The only downside is no sewer but there are several dump stations and the honey wagon will pump you out. We camped at Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Great place to take side trips as Monterey is close as is San Francisco. If you want to go to Alcatraz be sure to make reservations in advance as they are often sold out if you just walk up to the office.

Satisfactory overall. Pluses: fairly roomy, some shady sites, beautiful olympic-sized pool, tennis court, a few amenities for kids [pool table, games, etc], not too crowded, adequate number of rest rooms. Quiet. Creek-side. Minuses: their dump very tight for large RVs, NO SITE SEWERS and sewer dump very tight for large RVs, mostly 20-3o amp spaces [few 50 amp], UNPAVED sites > DUSTY,

office service sketchy, some run-down long-termer trailers. We camped at Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve in a Motorhome.

I had to write a new review for this campground. Sad to say that this place has went down hill since my first review in August 2012. Lots of very old rigs with stuff piled around them. Bathrooms in disrepair and the only place that I really felt kind of o.k. (safe) was is the 50 amp area were I had to pay more money to stay even though my rig is only 30 amps. Morgan Hill is turning into a low income residential RV park. I will stay here only as needed when conducting business in San Jose.

This is a large, pretty park - lots of mature trees, very relaxed and casual atmosphere, nice and quiet. Dirt sites and mostly gravel roadways. A number of annual sites around the perimeter - but these are kept up very well, no piles of junk or tattered tents. In fact, most of these tenants have nice little gardens, gravel paths, little picket fences. The main sites are dirt and gravel with some grass, appropriate for the location, which is a large, shady clearing surrounded by green hills. Lots of recreational facilities and a "country store" which serves meals (which I hear are pretty good), none of which I used. Pretty isolated - you have to drive quite a ways for groceries and other supplies. But the drive is pretty - winding through forested hills, and further down, farms and fields. A very relaxed, fairly remote location - an ideal place to hang out and enjoy fresh air, peace and quiet. Lots to do in the park for kids. We camped at Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

We had reservations for 3 nights but moved after 2. After we drove through the park and checked it out, we almost drove on. Many sites were full and the park didn't impress us at all. Their new and "upgraded" sites are unlevel, on dirt, without sewer and almost on top of neighbors. Trees block satellite at many sites. Rangers are young and tend to be curt. Lots of permanents in this park. Furniture and lodges are rundown. What's wrong with Thousand Trails? They used to be ahead of all the other RV parks. We've seen a few of their parks just like this one. We certainly won't be back ... oh, no pool because it's after October and the pool shuts down. There are some nice RVs here and some real trashy ones. We camped at Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve in a Motorhome.

As other reviewers have stated, a very mixed bag of newer and older units. Lots of long term residents, sites for the most part are kept clean. Buildings are older, run-down and in need of some sprucing up. There are two free dump sites, honey wagon is $25, unless you need same day service, then its $50. Roads are dirt, lots of dust raised as people drive by. The camp hosts or staff are called "Rangers", not sure why, but apparently the attitude is "we are in charge". Too many rules, too many obnoxious, overbearing twenty year olds being put in charge, for me. I've stayed at plenty of RV parks that have the same rules, but aren't in your face about them. Won't stay here again, probably won't stay in another Thousand Trails after my experience here. We camped at Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve in a Motorhome.

This campground is a mixed bag. The location is handy, just 25 miles south of San Jose and the southern bay area. The campground facilities are pretty good. I’d say that the centerpiece is a large, nice pool. There’s also mini-golf, horseshoes, volleyball, and other nice features, all in pretty good shape. On the other hand the campsites are average at best. None have full hookups and many are rather crowded, with campsites basically back to back with no room between them. The 50 amp section not only has a $5 surcharge but those campsites are pretty tight. The section across the road from the pool is, I think, the best. It has larger campsites and is handy to much of the activity section of the facility. Several campsites are being leased to annuals and we felt that there was a larger percentage of older trailers in the campground than we usually see at Thousand Trails. Of course they are mixed in with the usual mix of 5th wheels and motorhomes. There are also three sections set aside specifically for tenters. We were in a 30 amp site and in the afternoons voltage drops into the 107-108 volt range. I think most people who want it manage to get a satellite signal and our Verizon is getting a 2 bar usable signal. In the booster cradle it hits a solid 4 bars. I gave the campground a 7 rating, but it's because I give it a 9 on facilities and a 5 on campsites. We camped at Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

We are Thousand Trails Zone Pass members and stayed here 3 nights. It is the lowest rated Thousand Trails park we have been in so far. Staff didn't seem all that friendly or attentive. All amenities seemed to be functional, but the state of repair of most of the facility was sub par. Lots of little kids living there. My biggest complaint, however, was the trashy state of rigs and sites of the long term/permanent residents--rusty, dirty, wind-torn. This is the only park I've stayed in where I have ever truly been concerned for my safety and security. We parked in the far back portion of the park to get as far away from the long terms as we could. Very dusty sites required blocks to get level with our motor home. Not all sites had picnic tables. There were lots of sites with shade, although most of them were taken by long termers. We would not stay here again. We camped at Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve in a Motorhome.

Big swimming pool, some sites are shaded, some sites have 50 amp ($5/day extra), outdoor movies on summer Friday nights. Most sites are close together. Roads are dirt and create a lot of dust. No sewer @ site - dump station (free) & honey wagon ($25) is available. Power failed at pedestal. Maintenance had to fix it twice. Camp fires allowed in your own portable fire pit only if conditions are not too dry. See wild turkeys at dusk in field next door. Will not accept mail. All is returned to sender.

This park has a great big pool and miniature golf. Nice family and adult lodges. They fixed the driveway while we was there so all the potholes are gone and the bridge was repaired as well. They have updated some of the power boxes and have a section that is 50 amp as well But there are no sewer hookups and we parked in a site by the dump station which is pretty much none stop traffic so we would get some unpleasant fumes. The sites are filled with weeds rather than grass which in May isn't a problem but come summer I could see it getting worse (of course this is a drought area) and also there was several campers doing major auto repairs in the camp. which made it look trashy at times. We stayed for 3 weeks and all in all enjoyed our time there. We are TT members so our stay was free. We camped at Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

Typical Thousand Trails park with no sewer, but does have a honey wagon. 50 amp for $5 upgrade. Nice size sites but not really level. Lots of permanents here and surprised to see this in a TT park, Guess that"s what happens when Encore buys them. Entry way had large pot holes and bridge across creek needed repairs. The 2nd day here the entry road got nice new asphalt and the bridge got new decking. AT&T worked fine. We were at the back of park and saw deer in the field next door several times. We would stay here again. Someone posted no amenities. Look again please. There is a pool, horseshoes, shuffleboard, and pool tables, We camped at Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve in a Motorhome.

We have read so many bad and poor reviews we were reluctant to go here, but we have just recently purchased a TT VIP membership and wanted to "test drive" it. We really enjoyed the campground and the staff was more than friendly. We had 50 amp electric ($5.per night charge) and a nice level site that was very quite. Since it rained all day Saturday we did not rave the heated pool, but next time for sure. There are a lot of full timers here and they have a wide and varied amount of stuff on their sites, but that seems common to all RV Parks no days. The staff was super friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. We will definitely be here again this summer. We camped at Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve in a Motorhome.

Fair Thousand Trails (member rate cited). No sewer, but honey wagon available for small charge. Gravel sites are not level. Lots of new 50 amp sites available for $5.00 per night charge. Very few amenities and not very friendly. We camped at Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve in a Motorhome.

The Good: Some large sites, with some pull thru's, but most are back in. Big shade trees. The Bad: Almost all improvements need upgrading. The rest rooms were somewhat clean of trash but in need of a good deep cleaning. Low voltage 30 amp power. Lots of run down long term campers. Noisy with motorcycle and car turn ups going on. Sites and roads are a mix of gravel and dirt that turns to mud and small lakes when it rains. We camped at Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve in a Motorhome.

First time at this park. Some back-ins, some pull throughs. Some fairly level, some would require quite a few boards/blocks. At least 75 sites have been converted to 50 amp with extra $5 nightly charge. Quite a few oak trees for shade. Restrooms are old and in need of updating, but clean and everything worked. Grass areas were green and kept mowed. We followed GPS rather than the written directions to get here and went down some not-RV friendly streets/roads. Biggest downside in our opinion is only five washers & six dryers for whole park. We camped at Thousand Trails / Morgan Hill Preserve in a Motorhome.
