A very nice park, just off from Hwy 101, but you do not hear the traffic. A pool is offered, but we did not use it. People in the office were very nice, on the phone with reservations. Nice dog area. RVers were quiet, and kept to themselves. No partying was present. We camped at Betabel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice stopping point to see Monterey and the area around it. We drove into Hollister and San Juan Bautista one day, another day to Gilroy another to Pebble Beach and another to the Monterey Aquarium. Nice grass area for dogs, although not fenced. Dogs can be walked around the park too. Cool temperatures and open windows were nice. The staff was very accommodating - trees blocked our DirecTV signal so they allowed us to move to another site in order to get our dish working. If you have children, there is nothing to entertain them except a basketball hoop up by the laundry, or the pool. We camped at Betabel RV Park in a Motorhome.

Shopped in Gilroy - 6 miles away. There was a great little donut shop in Gilroy - Gilroy Donuts. Stopped at some of the cherry stands and got some great garlic seasoning at one of them.

A nice facility, with many long-term residents (well-maintained). We stayed in a pull-thru, which had some long-term and some transient like us. Relatively quiet, the pull-thru sites nicely landscaped. Angled sites so you weren't looking directly at your neighbor. Concrete pads, asphalt roads. Good laundry facility, utilities worked fine. Wifi was basically useless- occasionally worked, most of the time not at all. Good stoping point for a night or two. Good pet area. Would stay here again. We camped at Betabel RV Park in a Motorhome.

There appears to be a lot of long term RV's here. There is an area that looks like where they put the rest of us. It is all paved. The middle aisle has a lattice fence by the connections to separate it from the site next to it. It looks good. We were by the side so we just had the typical lines. It is nothing but a huge parking lot. We have two dogs so the huge park like area for dogs was great. WiFi was poor. Nothing to stop us for coming again. We camped at Betabel RV Park in a Motorhome.

We made reservations to stay one night, but had to cancel two days before our arrival. Betabel was very accommodating and said there would be no cost. We greatly appreciate that level of service. We camped at Betabel RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park with back-in and pull-through sites. Ours was paved with trees/bushes between sites. Other area of park was just a paved lot with painted lines to mark confines of sites.

Lots of big rigs and toads so no problem getting into sites.

WiFi okay for email, etc.

Washrooms were at office/entrance to park and one washroom for each gender in the middle of the park. Outdoor pool was nice.

We booked for a week but had to leave 2 days earlier - no refund. We camped at Betabel RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

No cell reception, rude management. All they care is money. The park looks 'OK' but not nearly according to the reviews. Their pictures in the website are old, everything is dry now and no shade at most sites, it's mostly dirt. The only thing they do have is a nice lawn for dogs. The advertise WiFi but it's the worst we came across to, so we didn't bother with that. They are on Hwy 101 and it's very, very noisy, if you want to sleep well avoid this park. We camped at Betabel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a lovely, clean, modern, well kept park. It's very large and the bulk of the sites appear to be long term. The sites vary quite a bit from ones that are separated by bushes to ones that are right beside each other. We had one of those but it was wide enough to not feel cramped. It was a back in site right next to the large lawn where well-behaved dogs are allowed to run free. This is the first park where I've seen something like that and I really appreciated it! Another nice touch is that you can wash your rig right at your site. Saved a bundle over having to find and use one of the drive in truck wash places.

There are two laundry rooms. I used the one by the office. The equipment was modern and worked fine. No change machine though and no cards so be sure you get some quarters from the office. The restroom was very clean and the shower worked well with decent pressure and plenty of hot water. The only problem we encountered was extremely loud music from about 5 p.m. until midnight on Saturday night from the facility next door. Not the park's fault and I don't know if it's a frequent occurrence, but you might want to ask about it and request a site further away if you are there for a Saturday night. Other than that it was great and we would certainly stay again. We camped at Betabel RV Park in a Truck Camper.

We stayed here with a group of 16 Motorhomes. Attendants were friendly and helpful. The double-wide was adequate as a club room. We had two rigs that parked in spots with power problems. They were very attentive to the problems and provided transformer boosters. The spots provided were on asphalt. The rows were in the exit lane of the grounds with people driving way to fast. Too many monthly renters with too many kids and dogs. We were in #120 with a stairway with too much traffic walking through our spots. The trees were planted in the front of the sites causing excess jockying to get satellite service. It was extremely windy. This park is not close to anything! We camped at Betabel RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park was surprisingly full when we arrived for our week stay. Staying for a week often gets you a reduction from the daily rate. We paid $290 for 7 days and that included tax. I believe it was a 15% reduction over the daily rate. The park has concrete sites and paved roads. There are mature trees and landscaping between the sites. While there is not a huge amount of room between the sites, the landscaping makes it feel a little more spacious. There was plenty of room to sit outside in chairs, watch the outside TV, and even do our morning workouts.

The park has free WiFi that worked pretty well, but you are limited to emails and basic web searches. Our Verizon air card worked pretty well, but we did have periods of slow downs. The bathrooms are in good condition and had handicapped showers and toilet stalls. There were 8 washing machines and 10 dryers in the laundry room. Washes cost $1.50 and dryers were $1.00. Extra capacity dryers were $1.50.

A few of the surprising perks in this park were a huge lush grass area across from the office that well mannered pets are allowed to run on while off leash. There is also a more rustic area in the back of the park that has a path around it where pets can also be off leash. Plenty of doggie waste bags and containers are around the park. There is a heated pool, rec room and showers. You are also allowed to wash your own rig at your site if you desire, or have a service do it for you. A car wash area is provided by a separate dump station for free use as well. Although close to the highway, road noise was never a problem. I would stay here again. We camped at Betabel RV Park in a Motorhome.

Even though it's close to 101, the fulltimers provide a sound barrier. I like having shrubs between us and neighbours but we have a narrow rig. Check in staff were very nice. We'd stay here again. We camped at Betabel RV Park in a Motorhome.

Right off Hwy-101 for easy access, and quiet at night. Sites are a bit close together, but manageable. Picnic table, level concrete site. WiFi and cable TV worked great, but some internet sites are blocked if they use excessive bandwidth (games, movies, etc). Restroom/shower in campground very small but clean, best to use the one next to the pool area. large pet area. Campground was full, best to make reservations.
