This KOA doesn't offer any great views but it is in a great location. Big rigs can take Hwy 156 off Hwy 101 to Hwy 1. Basics: nice laundry room, well kept grounds & sites with minimum leveling needed, clean, large showers, easy access off hwy 1, 3 well rated restaurants in walking distance, fresh fruit & vegies, and easy access to the marina whale watching cruises. From this location we were able to visit Monterey, Carmel, and a drive down hwy 1 to the Big Sur area. We camped at Moss Landing KOA Express in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Site 44 has a small treed area in the back which was nicer than the staggered back-to-back sites.

The biggest plus about this park is its location: close to Monterey Aquarium, lots of beaches, and great birding. On the advice of a local we took a day trip north to Capitola, which was a neat thing to do. The park itself is very small with only one road in and out so when a caravan of 17 or so rigs came through, it tied up access. Very inconvenient. They kind of overdo the regulations as well -- with signs in the restroom telling you where to hang up your towel and things like that. But the restrooms were very clean. We camped at Moss Landing KOA Express in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The town of Moss Landing is tiny and very picturesque with several interesting shops and a few restaurants. Phil's Fish Market is a great place to eat -- casual, with lots of atmosphere and within walking distance. Closest place for groceries is Castroville, 10 min south on Hwy 1. The Elkhorn Estuary is fantastic for birding. Moss Landing State Beach, access on Jetty Road, just north on Hwy 1, is great for viewing sea otters in the Elkhorn Slough.

Check in was a breeze. Very friendly staff. Small park but the spots were plenty big enough to put our awning out and our slide. Location is great. You can walk to 3 super restaurants, fishing, whale watching and a little bit of shopping in Moss Landing. You could hear the otters playing in the Marina along with the fog horns. People were very friendly. It did not look like there were many full timers. Small but clean dog park, movies in the office to borrow. WIFI was spotty. We will be back. We camped at Moss Landing KOA Express in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Go to Phil's fish market and get some fresh fish to cook at the park. Clam chowder was yummy.

Even though there are no amenities except a laundry (2 washers, 2 dryers), this is a very nice RV park and is well kept and clean however, a bit pricey. The location is fabulous! It's within walking distance to a Mexican restaurant and bar inside the restaurant and next door, Phill's Snack Shack, and close by Phill's Fish Market. All very good. It's also a good spot to use for visiting Salinas, Monterey, Carmel, and Pacific Grove. It is right next to a marina. There is good shopping in Salinas like Walmart, Costco, Kohl's, Best Buy to name a few. A little closer is a super Walmart off of hwy 1 (ask at the office how to get there). There are road side vegetable and fruit stands (at least during the season). The park is paved and the sites are concert. They are tight sites. It has cable, 50 & 30 amp for their full hookups and it's level. It has wifi but it appears not to work a good bit of the time. There are two unisex bathroom suites that are clean. The staff is extremely nice and have chocolate chip cookies what appeared to be every day. It has a small store with a few items you might need to include ice. We camped at Moss Landing KOA Express in a Motorhome.

Small, clean park. Not many frills, but conveniently located. We would stay here again. We stay thru a weekend and were charged an extra $10 per night for Friday and Saturday nights. If Monterrey is on your itinerary, I strongly recommend you make reservations at this or other local parks as early as possible. We camped at Moss Landing KOA Express in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The nearby Farmers' Market is a must for in expensive, fresh produce Don't leave without trying the deep fried artichokes! Nearby Phil's Fish Market & Eatery gets high ratings from the locals we were visiting.

This was a tight space, but comfortable park across a fence from the harbor. 25-30 miles to Santa Cruz or Monterey for a wide variety of shops and restaurants. I would definitely consider this park again because of its close vicinity to the Monterey and Santa Cruz area. We camped at Moss Landing KOA Express in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We took Elkhart Slough Safari, a short trip to see the Otters and other wildlife. The owner of the boat was very knowledgable about the area, and made the trip very enjoyable.

We enjoy the Sand Bar and Grill for lunch or dinner, which is right on the harbor as you come into Monterey.

First time staying here, the park is centrally located and easy to get to. It provides access to the entire Monterey Bay Area from Santa Cruz to Pacific Grove to Carmel. There are several good golf courses very close by. It is within walking distance of the beach and several good eateries.

Check in was very quick, they had all our information ready and even had fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. All the rules are the same as any other park. All the spaces are back-in and are pretty close together. They are layed out well so backing in should be no issue. There is a bit of grass around every space but it's not really usable. The pet area is very small and not practical for a large dog like ours! That is one reason I dropped the rating, the other is the closeness of the spots. The place is very clean, quiet at night, and feels safe, even though it's right of Hwy 1. We camped at Moss Landing KOA Express in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Golf in Monterey, Carmel, Seaside, Seacliff, Pajaro Valley, etc.

Lots of hiking along long stretches of beach, wildlife watching, fishing, kayaking. Great off leach beach to the right side of the bridge.

If you like fish, Phils is a great fresh fish eatery.

Really clean, well-organized park. Good option for full hook-ups including 50 amp and cable near the beaches and marina. Friendly and helpful office staff; friendly fellow campers. From chatting with a few seemed like there were a number of regulars, and we may become regulars too!

No amenities, i.e., no pool, no playground, dog walk area is just the grass along with entrance drive, but clean, level concrete pads each with a wooden picnic table on a paved patio, and a strip of grass between the sites. A tall, thick hedge surrounds the park which helps cut the wind and also road noise. Walking distance to several good restaurant options. We'll certainly stay here again. We camped at Moss Landing KOA Express in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Nearby restaurants include the Whole Enchilada, the Haute Enchilada (live band on Saturday night!) and Phil's Fish House across the bridge.

We have been coming here for years and the staff changes like the weather. It is close for us and we love the beach in walking distance. Nice off leash beach for dogs. You have a great produce stand close by along with restaurants as well. Small KOA so reserve if you're coming on a weekend. We camped at Moss Landing KOA Express in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Plenty of cheap veggies and fruit nearby

Location, Location, Location! We normally don't stay too often at KOAs due to the high cost but this one was worth it. Within walking distance of the beach, harbor, and great restaurants. The interior roads are paved as are the sites. The utility hookups are convenient and we had a good line of sight for our satellite dish. The only minuses were that the sites were close together both on the sides and the rear. When it filled up for the weekend we felt real crowded. We probably would stay here again due to location! We camped at Moss Landing KOA Express in a Fifth Wheel.

When we drove up, we were miserable at the site of the huge power station behind. However, once we parked, and looked the other way, we realized that this was actually a nice little park. Quiet, level, clean sites with nice landscaping and plants between sites. The office and showers were in a porta-cabin but very clean and easily accessible. Better still was 'Phill's Fish Market and Eatery' was just a short walk away - just stunning. Expect to wait in line on the weekend, but once through, service is so quick and the quality, wonderful. The beach is a short walk away if you have limited stuff to carry, but we drove to the car park over the bridge as we were feeling very lazy and had 2 kids in tow. We camped at Moss Landing KOA Express in a Motorhome.

Moss Landing KOA RV Park, we have stayed here last year, returned and will return again. Check in is easy the staff is friendly and helpful. The sites are clean and level all good size some wider than others some longer than others, no pull throughs, all back ins but big rig friendly. Walk to dog friendly beaches that go to harbor with many birds and the otters, although to see them best to dive short distance to Moss Landing State Beach. Great restaurants and town across the street is the Whole Enchilada Restaurant and Market Place, at the harbor is Phil’s fish Market Restaurant, and breakfast you cannot beat the Moss Landing Cafe. What more could we want? We stayed in October. We camped at Moss Landing KOA Express in a Fifth Wheel.
