23 Parks near Sunnyvale, California
Oct 2007 - $25.00
Very nice people. This park is all gravel with very narrow sites. I actually thought it was a campground until i got here. Most of the campers here are permanently set up on a site with storage buildings. - Rweaver

We stayed here 1 night to attend a concert down the street. Can't reserve till 14 days prior, we did, but they didn't have any record of it. Can't check in till 5pm, Must leave by 11am. They put us in the parking lot backed up to the trees. Had to move a bunch of cars in the lot to get us in. Cable tv had 3 channels. WiFi was free for an hour, then $6.00 a day! Restrooms need a lot of TLC before my wife would use it. Would only stay here again to attend another concert. - Tredguy

This is not a real RV park, it is a day use park for picnics. The road in is narrow and twisty, the sites are VERY short and not level. The bathrooms are not cleaned daily and old. Avoid this if your in anything longer then 10'. They don't tell you this when you talk to them. We stayed in a 38' motor home, never again. You have to wait till the day use parking lot clears out before you can get in or out of your site. Severe steep driveway. - wrready2

Pleasant location. However the site was not flat, which made for awkward sleeping. This was surprising as it is tarmac all the way through. Restrooms and showers needed a LOT of work (holes in the walls, cramped and dirty). Wifi was available for $6. This site has a lot of potential as it is beautifully situated in the woods and right by a stream, and has all facilities available. However the problems mentioned above mean I can only give it a 6 out of 10. - wicksee

Would never stay here again. Got the last site in what seems to be mostly fulltime campers. Odd set up and needed extension and level blocks. Didn't feel safe because of unsavory characters and the neighborhood wasn't the nicest. Showers cost. Not good value for money at all. Manager was abrupt and rude. No amenities for the high charge. Don't bother coming here unless you're desperate. - kiwitravelers

This park would rate much higher if it weren't for the noise at night. Starting about 3 AM the recycle trucks arrived and dumped their loads. Now, if you sleep like my wife, or wear a hearing aid, I can highly recommend the park. Showers were older, but spotless, including shower curtains. The rest of the bathroom was extremely clean. The manager was kind and made sure we had good instructions when calling in for reservations. Unlike a previous poster, we did not experience a smelly environment from the recycle center. - JDRobar

Nothing new on the comments below except to say the management was competent, friendly and proud of the park. This is an urban camp that has a lot of back up alarms during the day. But just the urban noise at night. If you are going to be in the bay area this is the most reasonable place I found. The internet signal is very weak and drops off a lot. Wi-Fi card will work OK here. Water pressure is low. The camp is kept spotless and does not allow units in that are older than 10 years unless they are in good shape.(?) Clean bathrooms and laundry. No frills top end park - pumper9x9

This park is pretty with only a couple of trailers left, full of motorhomes and fifth wheels. They have very specific parking rules which required us to park our dually next to a bush, that scratched it. Nice but cramped laundry.30 amp electricity kept going off and on. No breaker to turn off electric so must hot connect. Sewer is not a proper fit so it leaks. No recycling available. Very expensive, not near groceries or shopping. In industrial area of town surrounded by poor neighborhoods. WiFi virtually non-existent, no cable and no antenna stations available. Sites and streets are paved with many many very high speed bumps. No discounts. - DRV

This RV park in silicon valley is clean! This park appears to have its own cc&r's and is better for it. Pool and gazebo surrounded by green grass. Postal service is evidenced by a row of mailboxes at main office. There is an electric lawn mower to borrow to keep up your very own 10'x 5' strip of green space should you reside here for over 2 weeks. It offers spaces to one-night travelers too. This is a nice, clean, groomed trailer park where you want to live while earning a living here in San Jose. I didn't want to leave. It is nice for city camping in your travel trailer & I would go back. It is just a few miles from World Famous Henry's High Life restaurant and HP Concert Pavilion - CasaRoll

Located in an industrial area with good access to the freeway. Park is very clean and well kept and has many long term/permanent residents. Dogs are limited to 20 lbs. The downside is that they do not take credit cards, cannot arrive after dark and must have a reservation. This park is not a resort, but a convenient place to stay for those visiting friends/relatives in the San Jose area. - nkwazi

We came to this county RV park as many other RV parks in the Bay Area closed down. The RV sites are difficult to level and only for smaller units. We have a 27 ft class C so it was OK lengthwise but had a hard time to level. The county park closes its gate at sunset but we were given access code to get in at night. Unfortunately the code we were provided were wrong as they did twice. We were stuck at one night for more than half an hour. The camp host never answered calls or knocks on the door of his/her motor home. Other campers told us they never saw the camp host anyway. The ranger station was not attended so you do everything online. We will never stay here if there is another alternative in the Bay Area. The high housing cost has driven most of the RV park out unfortunately. This county park has no incentive to improve its service. - hotpepper

This is a Santa Clara County campground in a park. They have 15 RV sites for smaller rigs. The official policy is no RVs over 31 feet, but we have seen much longer RV’s. There is water and 30 amps at the site and a dump station. Larger RV’s (and perhaps smaller as well) will have an issue with the road into the park. The last two miles on Sanborn Road is very narrow with some overhanding limbs and a one-lane bridge. It is also very steep coming up the hill into the park. The dump station is very, very tight. The sites are all back-in and fairly short and not very level. This is a campground that I would recommend for smaller RV’s with a sense of adventure. Once you get past that, it is a wonderful, quiet campground with great access to the Bay Area. You can make reservations but we have never, ever seen it full. If you do not make reservations, you have to pay day-by-day; a bit of a pain but it works. The gates close at sundown so it feels secure. If you talk to the right person, you can get the gate code to come in after dark. The park is a bit strange in that it gets some folks camping because they have no other housing, but it has never been a problem for us. Our Verizon phone and data card did not work in the park because of the terrain. There are some sites where you can pick up satellite. - TheJim

Sites are for Elk's members only. No sewer hookups is a big minus. The facility has a large pool available and showers, steam room, exercise room. The park manager is very aggressive. - firedguy

We have stayed here a lot and will come here whenever in the area.
Consistent quality of service & facilities.
A LOT of permanent rigs, that frankly are pretty sh__y. Wish they would flush some of that out.
The "new" section is pretty nice, and back by the marsh/bay.
Wish the sites were more level. We always have trouble with this, even though that is now the "norm".
The Wi-Fi is VERY weak back in the "new" section. Wish that would improve.
Front office is always helpful & pleasant.
Even though they are expensive, they are VERY conveniently located, and are our go-to when we are in the Bay Area. - Janna

We stayed here for 10 days to visit with family and attend a college graduation. Hotels in the area are $200 a night and up, so even at $70 the value is good. The park is very clean, the newer spaces in the back are completely paved and concrete so don't expect any natural beauty, but it IS good if it rains and there isn't any loose gravel. We had a long pull-through for a 45' rig towing a Jeep and were able to park both with a bit of room to spare. Surprisingly quiet given it's proximity to 101. Regarding what some have written about odd sewer connection--it isn't odd. They built risers for venting each sewer connection so the vent access is on top of the cement "step"--but the actual sewer connection is nestled at the base of the riser at ground level. The utility connections were excellent. We did not use them, but there's a $25 key deposit for restroom. It would be good if they gave some kind of handout for the sewer explanation for those who are confused by the configuration, and also for the laundry rooms. We went to do laundry this morning and were informed by a resident that folks reserve the machines on a white board in the laundry room. It is not clear that this is an issue here, and there was nothing said at the office. - 3DogsGo

With so few RV Parks in the Bay Area, this place isn't bad. We stay here every time we are in the area. On the other hand, I really wish there were more choices. On the positive side, Redwood City is halfway in between SFO and San Jose so you have lots of things to do within a 30 minute drive, so the location is good. The park is by the freeway, but you camp so far away you don't hear a thing. The overnight campers are put in the back of the park, near the bay so you get some views. You park on concrete pads with great utilities and it's very clean. the laundry rooms are great, with newer machines. On the bad side, It's in Redwood city so it's far from everything (yes, it's location is a blessing and a curse). It's in a depressing, industrial location. The campsites are crammed together. The internet is poor. There are a lot of full timers, but they have new RV's and new cars, so it's not like you are surrounded by transients. - bendoregonrv

First, a word of caution about this campground: It is located 9 miles out on a very windy, narrow road. We were challenged by this road when pulling our 24' TT. That being said, this is a beautiful campground with spacious sites that are very private. The restroom and shower facilities are immaculate. The campground is located on rolling hills dotted with old oaks. The amazing thing about this place is you are 30 minutes from teeming San Jose and environs. We stayed here while exploring San Jose, Saratoga, Stanford Campus and Filoli Gardens. To return to our campsite after negotiating the freeways was wonderful, relaxing and invigorating. If you stay during the warm summer months, try to get a shaded site as it could get pretty hot back in this valley. We had #6 and were well pleased with this site. - Campy

We came up to San Jose to see the Winchester House but fell in love with the county park. Lots of different types of oak trees and wild life. Right when we pulled in, we saw a wild pig 150 yards of the check-in kiosk. We were the only ones there when we went except for the camp host. Looks like the county was doing some renovations to the tent camping areas. Nice place to bring your mountain bike, there were lot's of trail to ride or hike. WARNING TO ALL RV'Rs: Do not use the directions provided by Navtec, google maps. It directs you to take Quimby Rd. DO NOT TAKE this route! Three back to back severe switch backs and a road that narrows to one lane. Use CA130 as your route, this route may be too narrow for any RVs over 35' -- We did see a 40' traveling on it once. - Woods Family

I love this Park, it is the nicest, cleanest, coolest Park in the entire Bay Area. I previously stayed here for a year and a half, this time for about 2 weeks. The staff is super friendly and helped me out with changing reservations several times, due to family issues. The Park looks as great as the first day it was built. (Except the potholes in the entry area, fix this guys.) There is a path out the back of the resort to the golf course and a bike/jogging path. On my walks with my dogs we saw rabbits, deer, and a flock of turkeys. Each year the elk migrate on the adjacent mountains and you can see them on the hillside.
Stay here on your travels, you will truely enjoy yourself. - JCat

This RV park is convenient to San Jose and offers reasonable services. However, it is expensive, the sites are very small and the park has many long term residents. We chose a premium site for our 40' motor home and full sized pick up and barely had room to park both. We could not put out our awning because of a very close tree. The common facilities are very nice and they do offer garbage pickup at the site. - JanW
May 2016 - $60.00
We have stayed in this park on approximately 7 different occasions, with each stay being 3 to 5 nights.
While it is the nicest place in the south bay area, we are disappointed to see that is is turning into a park with mostly full-timers. Why is it that many full-timers fill their site with large patio furniture, BBQ grills, storage containers, plant boxes, kid's toys, extra vehicles, etcetera? And, many of the full timers at this park never have the exterior of the rig washed, and some are quite old and dirty. The owners of this park obviously do not care about the appearance of its guests.
Unless you pay for a premium site, the sites are very small and close together. I barely had room to park my pickup in the site with my 18' trailer. - Wesley
May 2016 - $71.00
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
May 2016 - $50.00
This park is almost entirely full-time residents, but there is a small section of pull-through sites for "transients". These were very narrow and barely long enough for our 34-foot 5th wheel with the truck parked sideways in the road. The park is very convenient to the town of Scotts Valley and a 15-minute ride to downtown Santa Cruz. Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and the cute town of Felton are 10 minutes away.
As a base camp for exploring the area, this is pretty good, though we prefer the state park campgrounds down on the beach, which are quite nice, or the yacht harbor RV park. The pool is nice, though it can get crowded on weekends since lots of kids live here. Even with the Thousand Trails discount, this place is quite expensive, but typical for the greater Bay Area. - MrSunshine
Jul 2015 - $54.00
Not our kind of place. Cramped spaces, neighbors entry faced ours so thru us together so absolutely no privacy. Lots of kids so it was noisy as we were right by the pool. No place to walk outside park. Staff was extremely helpful and went the extra mile for us. Internet was not good. Sites were holy, not level. - LottaTidbits
