I stayed here for three months. It is one of my favorite parks, especially for long-term stays. It is a little tight if you have a large rig, but the park owner will help guide you into place, and help you again when you move out. The owner and managers are some of the nicest and most helpful people I have ever met. They are putting a lot of money into renovating the entire park. They told me they're planning to put in a swimming pool, a restaurant and other amenities. There are two large laundry rooms with lots of machines (that take quarters), $1 to wash, 75c to dry. Everybody I met there was very nice. I will absolutely stay here again when work brings me back to Southern California.
I have lived in this park for two months as a long-term resident, and I am moving out ASAP. If you are deaf, you may like it here. But there is almost constant noise from Hwy 126 (semi trucks), day and night. There are barking dogs all over the park, and management will play friendly and pretend to care, but in actuality they do not. I have filed multiple complaints about dogs barking early in the morning (5:30 AM) and late at night (10 PM and later) and nothing has ever been done about it. I even moved to a new site to try to get away from the noise, and ended up near more barking dogs. Another park resident whom I speak with frequently has echoed the same problem. He told me not to complain because those who do get blacklisted. I chose to complain anyway, and am going to move out instead. Avoid this place at all costs unless you're only here for a few days. Short-term people stay in a different area of the park away from the long-term people so you will have less chance of dealing with dogs,but you're right next to the road, so you still get to deal with that.
It's basically a big parking lot, but is nice enough. I will stay here again, but not if I can get space elsewhere. Management was a lot nicer before KOA came in and took over. In the past, you could stay 28 days at a time, but now KOA only charges nightly/weekly. The biggest attraction now is that they're right next to the new Cabellas.
A very nice, clean, quiet park. Sites are a bit small, as is maneuvering, but it's manageable. There's actually grass between each space, which is nice. You can ride your ATV right from the park onto local trails. The only negative is that when I was there, they had no sewer hookups, just a dump station. They did say they were going to be putting full hookups in, but couldn't say when. Overall, a very nice place I will likely stay at again.
A very clean park, but not much space between sites. They don't like truck campers but will grudgingly allow one if you promise not to unload it (they're afraid it will tip over). Park management is not very friendly either, at least the grumpy old woman I dealt with wasn't. The place is okay for a night or two, plus it's centrally-located so that's nice as well.
I was thrown out of this park while staying with a group of friends. Why? I was accused of "speeding" (8 mph in a 5 mph according to my GPS) by one of their "security guards" who had absolutely no customer service skills whatsoever. I had the audacity to call him on it and he got in my face and threatened to physically drag me out of the park. The park management was unavailable at the time, and have not returned my phone calls, so I have been telling everyone I know to avoid this place, and all other Thousand Trails campgrounds.
The park itself is SPOTLESS! I have been a long-term resident since March. They are meticulous about people keeping their sites and RVs clean. They do not allow trashy RVs (but they will allow older units if kept up). Everybody has a patch of green grass that you must take care of if you're a long-term resident. You also get a storage shed. Each site is 25x50 and there is room to park a second vehicle. The pool and gym room are both spotless. The only negative is that the park is located in industrial San Jose, so air quality isn't that great at times, and there is occasional noise during the night from a nearby trucking transfer station. But this is a really nice park, probably the nicest I've ever stayed in.
I stopped here to inquire about a long-term stay. The only thing this place has going for it is being on the ocean. Other than that, it is a large paved lot with very small and narrow spaces. The long-term residents look trashy, as the park apparently doesn't have any appearance standards for such residents. Parking is severely limited so second vehicles are parked parallel in front of campsites, making it difficult to drive through the park. The place looked trashy thanks to unkempt RVs. If you like the idea of being able to stay "on" the ocean, I suppose this is worth a night or two stay, but I wouldn't want to stay longer.
I drove to this park to inquire about a long-term rate. While the manager was friendly, the park itself was in major need of refurbishing. The spaces are small and narrow. The spot they wanted to assign me for my 38' 5th wheel was only 25' long. The place caters to the football crowd, and from what the manager told me, expect big, loud parties there in the campground during the season. The place is really nothing other than a paved parking lot with painted lines, and a few outbuildings. I really can't think of any word to describe this place other than it's a dump, and I wouldn't stay there for any amount of money, not even for one night.
