1 Park near Paicines, California

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

Used as a short term stay while working in area. Disappointed by the poorly maintained sites, lots of non working electrical, pot holes, muddy. Pool was heated 69-70 degrees - yikes. Spa was out of order the whole stay. Could be a beautiful destination. If this is what the average Thousand Trails is like I'm glad I did not sign up. Spaces were decent and wildlife was awesome. Lots of old full-time rigs in need of repair; so sad as they have probably have no where else to go. Hope they can bring this park back to life. - sballey
