This campground has made big changes in the last three years. All for the best. Bath/showers have been remodeled. They are very clean and warm. - geo cong

Morgan Hill Thousand Trails suffered a serious flood in March, 2016. The resort was closed for 10 months. A massive renovation and renewal is underway. Roads and sites have been cleaned up and graveled, some bathrooms have been refurbished (the rest are in progress), there is new playground equipment, and the Family Lodge is refurbished. But wait, there's more! The pool is refurbished including new furniture, there's a new Adult Lodge, a new outdoor pavilion and new basketball court. The dump stations have new fencing and the dumpsters are hidden by nicely designed wooden enclosures. There's a new 11 hole miniature golf course (yep, 11 holes). New volleyball courts and refurbished tennis courts. The dog run has new sand and fence. There are 4 new "Safari tents" and new BBQ units are being installed everywhere. Still to come is a new fitness center and a check-in desk in the membership building (the old adult lodge). If you have not been to Morgan Hill TT since the flood, come on back and enjoy the much improved property! - Bruce McComb

Paid $5 for 50 amp as was hot weather. Bathroom in our section was closed. Lots of foxtails so check your pet. Do not take a left out of the park with RV even if GPS says to or you will be on a very narrow, winding road with low branches for 12 miles before getting to highway! - rvreviews

Actually free, part of Thousand Trails, but still NOT worth the price. You got slides? Good luck. This park was built before slides and now they have marked out narrow sites with white lines that you are expected to stay between. The fire department requires some magic distance away from the 30 amp electric socket. After getting read the riot act, very nicely, I might add, when checking in, we still ended up in a fierce argument with her when she found we were too much over the line. After I threatened to check every RV in the park to make sure they were in the lines, she gave us a few inches of leeway. She has a truly lousy job. Thousand Trails should be ashamed of themselves. RV's with slides should not be allowed and at 42', our MH leaves our Jeep out in the road, but somehow that's ok. You also park opposite your neighbor. Horrible setup. We test the water. Decent tap water (210ppm) and fairly soft. Thousand Trails is two for two with us so far - two losers. Don't come here. Santa Cruz is nothing anyway. The boardwalk is seedy. - Odyssey

The cable TV works. Wi-Fi, not so much. When you are inside of five miles of this RV park, turn off your GPS. Otherwise, you'll tear your air conditioner(s) off the roof, have to unhook, backup, reverse, and never arrive. The location in Scotts Valley is great. Santa Cruz is but minutes away and every convenience known to man is nearby with a ten percent sales tax. The RV park packs you in like sardines sans olive oil. Your tow car will not fit on your site and they run out of overflow parking around five p.m. They don't seem to object to us parking our tow car in the road. It does make it other people's problem however. There are lots of long-timers with their children who are easy to run over if you are not diligent. This is most likely a corollary of the housing expense in the area. The sites are all 30-amp, full hookup. However, the water pressure can drop to nothing as will the electrical voltage. Our solution for the former was to fill our water tank all day - there is a little water pressure - and run our water pump for showers and cooking. The former problem was solved by running our generator. At $82 a night it does seem they want a lot for very little. On the other hand, the pool looks nice and the hot tub hot. We would not return unless we had to for family reasons. - The Penguin

This park is located within a residential setting. Very low tree clearance at the entrance and had to go in the exit for additional clearance. Everything is tight in this park. We were instructed to keep the entire RV including slides within the white lines...which was impossible. We were told that the fire marshall would ask us to move our RV if we didn't stay in the lines. No one was within the lines. Hard to navigate our 32' fifth wheel into our site but just fit. Not enough room for our truck and hung over into the street, which makes it challenging for others to navigate. Lots of permanent folks with lots of kids loose in the park. We were ok but just watch when driving around. Pool, spa, laundry and bathrooms were in good shape and in working order. Good location for exploring Santa Cruz, Pacifica to Carmel but very expensive! Might stay here again if we didn't have other options. - JeffDeb

Park concessionaire died 2017 April. The city is temporarily closing the RV sites. - wjzcbn

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

Just a short walk down the hill to the beach. Our two dogs were able to use the private beach located directly across from the entry station. Didn't even know this existed, but the helpful attendant noted the beach north of Sunset is private and not subject to no-dog rules. From the park map, you cant' tell some sites, like ours, have 2 parking spaces right next to each other. Great for friends, not so much for strangers. Luckily we have good neighbors for the week, but just beware. The South Campground seemed best for trailers. The other two CG's were filled up with tents... and noise. To each his own, I guess. I would go back to Sunset SB. - FredjB

This is a very pastoral park, with a beautiful beach. The sunsets are spectacular. The sites have some space and foliage. You can have a campfire here. There are strawberry fields just adjacent to the campground. We rarely saw a park ranger, and the sites were not raked or cleaned between uses. We would return to this park. - Vic and Marsha

We stayed in site #25, which the camp host called "The Crown Jewel" of the park It was big, clean, and a short trail to an ocean overlook, with a drop dead view. The beach was quite a hike downhill. There are no amenities, other than the concrete pad and a fire pit. We were surprised at this, and landed there without water, because the CA Parks website said "developed". Now we know this does not mean hookups. Sunsets are amazing here, as the name would imply. The drive in is awesome, through farmlands and beautiful valleys. It is off the beaten path. Generators are against the rules after 8pm, as a ranger was quick to enforce. Nice place! - Dan Hannah

Didn't realize the site included a separate dog pen which is awesome for those who have dogs, we don't do would have preferred to use the space. Unfortunately our VERY close neighbors didn't have a dog pen so we heard their dog bark, whine and scratching on the windows for over 9 hours! The staff was amazing though! - KFreitas

We spent 4 days here from Friday to Monday. I had originally requested a spot at the back in expectation of peace and quiet. When we hooked up power our surge protector showed problems with the ground and would not allow power to the trailer. I returned to the office and they gave me a new spot over the office. This spot was the 7th in a line of 9 sites, all vacant. After setting up we saw another party arrive 2 spaces away, shortly after that another party arrived to the site between us. We soon found out that these 2 rvs were a group. So here we are next to the group of 10 or so people occupying the 2 sites next to us with 6 vacant sites on the other side and another 8 or 10 vacant sites across the street. I have no complaints about the people next to us, they were not unreasonably noisy or up at late hours, it just seems that with all those vacant sites there was no good reason to put us all together. I think the neighbors would have preferred having some space as well. Overall, it's not a bad park but they really need to look into how they assign spaces when they have so many available.
AT&T cell coverage is decent if you are toward the front of the site. Towards the back it goes away completely. - bdo

Nice campground for children. Medium sized sites. WiFi good (but the campground was nearly empty). But we were there in late December, and none of the bathroom/shower buildings have ANY heat, making them almost useless. Luckily, our daughter lives close to this campground, so we could shower at her house. - Gozierdt

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

This is a small RV park with all back-in sites. The one loop road is paved and sites are concrete pads with a little grass. The staff is very helpful in getting people backed in. Once we disconnected, parking at our site was tight but sites are of a number of different lengths. The park is off Rt 1 but one side is on Moss Landing Rd which can get quite noisy. Easy walking distance to the beach & three restaurants. There are different rates for weekends/holidays. Dog friendly. - storms

We received fresh baked cookies as we registered. The lady at the desk had a big smile for me as I registered. Her husband backed us into our site and he had dog cookies for my dogs. I love being able to walk everywhere including a lovely dog beach and dog friendly restaurant. I wish the WIFi was better. Spot 45 is large. You can hear road noise in the park. Some spots are close to each other. - Sili

Camp hosts are very pleasant. A staff member was especially helpful in guiding me to back in. Plus he asked about slide out widths so I could maximize space orientation on the patio. Very clean and quiet. Walking distance to very nice casual restaurants with excellent food. - 5th_wheelin_around

The staff here are fabulous. It is a large park but mostly filled with long-term residence. They did have room for our large 40' rig but just barely. It was dirt/gravel nearly everywhere so not very fun for our toddler. The biggest downside to the park is the entrance. It is directly off the freeway so you have to pull into Hwy 101 on a blind curve and immediately merge into traffic (only going North). It is terrifying!! There is also no entrance from the Southbound 101 so you have to U-turn on the freeway! We decided to leave early simply because we didn't want to continue to take that risk. If it weren't for that, it would have been an OK place. Oh, and we did get two other residence come soliciting at our door to sell us DishTV. That has never happened anywhere else! - Crown Jewel

This park is EXTREMELY difficult to find, especially at night. There are hardly any lights on the highway that it is off of and you must do a U-turn when coming from the north. Once you find the park you must cross a single lane bridge to get down to the main portion of it. Arrive early, they do not stay open late or leave information for you if they are closed. We arrived late in the evening and everything was closed up and we were left on our own to find a spot. This is very frustrating when you have paid in advance. There are MANY long term residents at this park, I would estimate about 75 percent of the spaces are taken up by people living there. The pool is closed and a murky green color. The spaces are small- to standard-sized but the roads are horribly small and the problem is compounded by people parking their extra vehicles on the small roads making it a tight squeeze for RVs. Everyone encountered though was very nice, and it was pretty quiet even though it was near the highway. We likely wont stay there again but in a pinch it is not bad for a quick overnight stay. - Nevaga Coyote

There are only a few spaces available for the RVer passing through. Most of the sites are taken up by long-term units, many of which are run-down with expired registrations and surrounded by junk. The park is right next to the highway, and truck noise is significant day and night. However, the office personnel were friendly and refunded our second and third nights' payment when we told them we were unhappy with the accommodations and wanted to leave. - nmroadrunner

Served our purpose, when needed a layover to get car repairs done. Just a parking lot with hookups, but no issues with the power or the water. Standard tire damage spikes at exit, but set in deep ditch. Beware you don't hit it to hard. We bottomed out the 1st time. Mgmt was helpful & accommodating to our need for adjacent site. - gs2rt

This is a very tired KOA property. The bathrooms are outdated (there are signs saying they're going to be remodeled), none of the doors in the women's restroom locked or latched. The back-in entry was uneven and even though our rig is only 25 feet, we scraped the bottom getting in because of that, plus the spaces were right on top of each other with no room in between. The internet was pretty much non existent and when I mentioned it the next day they said it was out last night but good today, it was not and this was mid-day when it's doubtful others were streaming movies. Aside from the substandard internet, my other biggest complaint would be that they have roosters and chickens wandering around the campsites and they start crowing WAY before sun-up (4:00am). Ridiculous! We stayed here because of the proximity to the Salinas Sports Complex but we would not stay here again. I realize not all KOA's are equal, but this was a real disappointment. - Cinzia

We stayed here because it was convenient to Monterey and Pinnacles National Park. We were in a section with units positioned to pull in from opposite ends so we shared connection locations. The space was rather tight and almost all asphalt. Unlike other spots, since we faced our neighbors, it wasn't very private. The bathrooms need upgrading and management says they are planning that. The laundry was great. Wi-Fi was not usable but Verizon 4G was fine. It served our purpose for the location but not really that pleasant. They said they are upgrading the power which is needed as we lost power the last night. The entry driveway is a tight turn and steep so follow their directions if you have a big rig. We were close to the 101 highway so noisy. Like many RV parks today, there were a number of permanent or semi-permanent residents. - bdornbush

Funny to rate a park a 9 and then cite so many flaws, but you are backed in about 100 feet from the ocean and that's what it's all about. The sites are slightly unlevel and you need at least two sewer hoses if you have a motorhome. Site was full of weeds and the road in is long overdue for a repave. None of it mattered when we were sitting around the camp fire watching the waves! - z32k12

Sea Cliff is a State owned/ran RV camping and day use area. We were in the full hook up area at the far north end of the park, and there are 3 dry camp lots, A,B and C as well. The dry camp spots are pretty much asphalt parking area with lines painted on the ground for your site. They were approximately 27X60'. The full hook up sites are narrow long sites with each one having 6" raised curb planters on each side. Unfortunately the planters were sand, and grassy weeds that were in dire need of cutting. The FHU sites had a heavy duty picnic table and raised fire pit at the front of the site. The sewer hook up was at the back of the sites, so bring lots of sewer hose. They are approximately 39X56'. Each site backs up to a public walkway that is about 8' wide and runs the length of the beach. On the other side of the walkway is the sand and the waves. On the front side of the sites is the road, and a embankment that's about 100+ feet tall. It used to be that there was zero cell signal in the camping area, but there is usable signal now probably from added cell towers in the area. The FHU sites are 30 amp only, but with a little conservation the 30 amp was not an issue. I love the relation of the sites to the beach, but the overall park is in dire need of maintenance. There is much weeding that needs to be done, the entrance road in front of the sites which is up against the embankment is over grown with trees and shrubs, and several large pot holes need filling in the road. The restrooms are typical for a public beach location, block walls and sparse on the inside. They are handicapped accessible, but there are NO hot showers available. Only cold water outdoor showers. Another point to keep in mind, they had me read and sign a small slip of paper upon checking in that advised among other things that there was a theft alert as chained generators and ice chests have been stolen. I very much like RVing at the beach, but as you can see there are trade offs. - SargeW

Great location. We dropped in on a sunday and they pulled names at random to fill the few locations that had hookups. we got lucky but declined since it was only good for one day. we stayed 3 days in a dry spot. there were plenty of those. there is only a $10/day difference for hookups. I think $20 discount for a dry spot would be more appropriate. a toilet "only" bathroom was close by but it became locked on the 2nd day. the next one was a bit of a hike. they were moderately clean...not too impressive. - D to the V
