Great for family camping

We camp with a minivan and two small children. The trees are thick and tall. The site and bathroom are clean. There are many short and easy trails.

There is a slight road noise before dark and in the morning but otherwise it is very quiet.

Does not allow roof top tents!

Went to check in and they wouldn’t let us stay. Apparently they do not allow RTTs in this camp ground. This was our first time with KOA. They have them everywhere so thought it would be worth a try. Guess those aren’t our type of campground.

Great for families!

In mid October the campground is still running kids activities daily and they’re good! Great culture here - friendly, lots of things to do (pool, basketball, volleyball, horse shoes, playground, billiards, karaoke, tennis). We lost power twice here which was unfortunate but lasted 90 minutes once…

Great RV park near Salinas Beach

Moss Landing RV park is a small, tight park close to Salinas Beach. Lots of great food close by. Cell and WiFi have been ok to good this past week, with a couple nights not being able to connect or stay connected. 20-30 drive to downtown Santa Cruz or downtown Monterey. Lots of trails,…

Great easy camping

Cozy clean campsites easy to navigate. Valley view point was pretty nice will make a good painting spot next time. Bathrooms were clean but didn’t use the showers, assumed they worked just as well. Archery ranged looked like a great trail I’ll have to bring my bow next time.

Awesome Place

This is a great camp ground for families as well as seniors! We are seniors and stayed recently over a weekend when they have their most activities. We attended a presentation on the wild birds in the area that an employee provided, and then he took us on a hike through Costanoa and over to the…

Pleasant setting with some noise from the shooting range

I liked the trees, picnic tables, and fire rings at the sites. The sites were spaced nicely to allow for privacy. Frog Flat seemed a bit more secluded than the main camp. There was no water running at the site when I stayed there, but vault toilets were available. There is a nearby shooting range…

Greast spot to wonder through the woods

There were a lot of walking trails from the campground. Cell phone reception was very bad. Bathrooms were clean but no soap, looked like each campsite had trees to hang a hammock.

It's so quiet

We stayed at one of the hike into camp sites. The hike in isn't very far at all but it's separated with from the other campers that it creates a peaceful and private environment. There is a specific campsite that you can really hike into, that one is a 3 mile hike and you have to call ahead to…

Camp in a sequoia grove

This place is amazing. Camping under giant sequoias is special.

The site was very good with flat space, table and fire pit. Multiple options for tent location. Excellent restrooms, super clean.

Beautiful trees

Beautiful camp grounds with huge old trees. The staff are great and the area is well kept. It stays cool under the enormous trees all year round. The showers are $1 for 4 mins quarters only and there is no change machine this being the only down fall. So other then the showers everything else is…

Thousand Trails

This is actually a TT campground, I have personally known people employed and have stayed here myself. It’s great has a lot of amenities and a pool! The nature around it is amazing, and the convenience of being so close to all the things around you about 20 min to town and county parks.

Most of the sites are large, with the sites around the loops perimeters are more private. The sites on the inside of the loops not so much. Lot's of posion oak. Lot's of hikes, most are not dog friendly. Restrooms are very clean. Cheaper firewood available in Felton.
