I camped here most recently in August of 2019 with my family in Site 137. The campsite is at the end of the main loop before the road continues on to the other section of the campground. The site is quiet and has privacy on 3 sides. There is a site next to this site but there is some distance between the two sites. There is lots of room for large tents. We were able to place two large tents behind the trees in the back of the campsite. The stream is directly across from the campsite but there is a lot of plant growth preventing easy access. There is also plenty of shade in this site.
The parking pad has space for only two vehicles side by side and it is a tight fit.
There is a water spigot on the road between the two sites so water is not an issue. There are two flush toilets' one campsite away, but since the sites are large it is not as close as you would think. If you want to take a shower you can buy tokens for hot water, but you will need to walk to the next closest bathroom that has the showers.
There are two stores near by. One at the lodge which is open later and also has an ice cream shop and another small store in the campground in the farther loop that also sells ice and firewood. The camp store also has a laundry facility.
The only drawback to the site was bugs during the day time.
Nice Older Park, Large, lots of things going on in the area between the Restaurant, Fruit Stand, Gas Station and the RV Park. But it definitely wasn't an issue getting around. Stayed there for the first weekend while in the area for work. The do supposedly have the 10 year rule in place.
Basically no one there when we stayed. Some excellent hikes and good climbing if you're into that.
We visited the first week of December 2020. The staff was helpful and the grounds were well maintained. Flat easy pull through with full hook-ups. Definitely in a canyon around the corner from Thousand Trails. You can see the stars at night and it is a very quiet campground. We were surprised at all the high-end rigs there, some full-timers. A nice dog park area and a stroll along the creek - our dog loved it. They recycle and are very environmentally aware. No pool or playground but lovely nature away from the hustle and bustle of silicon valley. It is about 6 miles to shopping and many restaurants. A very easy drive off the highway if you take the Tennant Road exit.
Having great on/off access along US 101, Betabel is one of those camps that is centrally located. To the north, you have Morgan Hill, Gilroy and San Jose; to the west, Santa Cruz and Watsonville and to the south is Marina, Monterey and Salinas.
The park has some shaded and some open sites. It is not a resort property but does offer some walking trails. The camp store is a good backup supply source, though I have not been in it due to the pandemic. All the facilities seem to be well kept including the bathroom/shower and laundry facilities.
Discounts for AAA, Good Sam and AARP.
Big campground because the coronavirus the facility has closed. I just use campground and showers is free hot water showers. Seems like fun on the summer I went on the winter and the place is very cold. One time visit. Staff is very cool.
We camped here for one night to test our pandemic project…a van conversion. We had never been here before but will definitely come back. We came in November, just in time for a temperature drop and some nice gusts. I’m not going to hold the chill against this area because I didn’t dress accordingly.
We had a great site and there was no one on either side of us. The bathrooms were a short walk down hill. They were clean with flushing toilets. There camp ground was quiet and it was mostly couples or small family groups. The hiking is quite beautiful and the woodpeckers were busy storing acorns.
