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. We camped at Mount Madonna County Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Mount Madonna County Park in a Motorhome.

Due to how close the park is to a large metropolitan area (San Francisco Bay area) this park is pretty much filled up during weekends in the summer. Plan ahead.

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. We camped at Mount Madonna County Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is about half way between Watsonville and Gilroy on Hwy 152 (Heckler Pass Highway) It is about 15 minutes east of Watsonville in the mountains. This is also a county park and was a very beautiful place for RV, Tent and they have Yurts for rent too. Road is steep and would be difficult for a big rig, but a small RV 22' 30' would have no problem. Sites are back in, they have flush toilets and showers. Showers are brand new and spotlessly clean. You are in tall Redwood trees so minimal air card and TV available. Most all sites are in the trees. Each site has a table and fire pit. We camped at Mount Madonna County Park in a Motorhome.
