1 Park near Paicines, California

This is the straw the broke the camel's back. We pulled out of our Thousand Trails membership because of this park . Closed or flooded filthy bathrooms. More than half the sites had faulty electrical and the "ranger" was the least helpful staff member I've ever dealt with. Tons of full timers, which is fine if it didn't look like they were making drugs in their rigs. Do yourself a favor, stay clear. We left and will never look back. Sad thing is we've waited to join since we were first married 20 years ago. My husband's dad had been a member since the 80s and it's always been a goal. Hopefully they can get it together . - Appreciatethedaysyouhave

We were not impressed with this park. We stayed for free because our new trailer came with a complimentary Thousand Trails membership. The spaces were well-spread out but dirt and not very level. Dozens of spaces had inoperative electrical hookups, most of which were marked with little flags, but we managed to find a non-working one without a flag and had to move. The men's bathroom exhaust fan was inoperative and as a result the men's room was like a sauna. The park grounds were covered with large tree leaves, which hid hundreds of dangerous ground squirrel burrows. The hidden burrows were like booby traps for dogs and small children. It's a lawsuit waiting to happen. They had a pool and hot tub but, of course, the hot tub was closed for maintenance and it was January, way too cold for the pool. Overall, our impression was of a park that was nice twenty years ago and is on it's last legs today. It's very far out of the way and we will not go back. - Don Geidel

This park is very remote. The nearest shopping is in Hollister, 12 miles and a half hour drive away. There is a small store on the property but the stock is very limited and it was closed most of the time. Make sure your fuel and refrigerator are full before you come.
It's a large park with most spaces well separated. There are a lot of trees so it's pretty. But it's badly in need of maintenance as other reviewers have said. Probably half of the electrical boxes are not working. The man who checked us in said this year's budget allows for one restroom to be remodeled but all six need to be. An electrician is supposedly coming. Stay tuned...
There are a lot of full-timers with Thousand Trails memberships who go back and forth between this campground and the one in Morgan Hill every 21 days. Not much to be done about that.
We heard that a new park manager started just before we arrived and that much of the staff here quit. Maybe that's why on Tuesday they delivered the previous Thursday's newspaper to our door. Funny or sad? You decide.
Wifi at our site was for a fee from Tengo. Verizon LTE worked well and there was adequate cell phone service as well. - Pull Toy
