Nice, clean and well maintained park with a friendly staff. Sites are gravel and level and wide. There is a laundry which was clean and in good working order as well as restrooms and showers. It's located less than a quarter mile from the the beach access and a great view of Morro Rock. We were surprised to find that there is a high school directly behind the park with entrances and exits on either side of the park. It was super quiet and the only time we heard any noise from the school was on Friday night when there was a football game, but the noise level was extremely low. We will definitely stay again.

A very nice, clean park with easy access and super close to the beach with a friendly, helpful staff. Just a block to the drive on entrance to Grover Beach (one of the few CA beaches you can drive on) and dunes. We were parked right on the corner of busy Hwy 1 and the beach access but we rarely heard the traffic noise and sometimes heard the ocean at night. Don't miss Fins, a nice restaurant/bar right next to the beach entrance with a great happy hour. There is also a nice boardwalk on the other side of Fins that winds through the dunes with great views of the ocean. Great park that we would stay at again while visiting friends.

If you want to be by the ocean and close to the San Francisco area then this is your best (only) bet. It's pricey for what amounts to a big parking lot, but it has a pool, laundry and a view. But most sites (like ours) do not have a view of the ocean. The sites are average width. We were lucky to have a median on one side which gave us room to put out the awning. They have quite a staff in the summer and the park was kept very clean. We were here for 8 days visiting family, seeing the sights and it was nice walking the dog next to the ocean everyday. I wouldn't call it a "resort" but it was worth the splurge. We would stay again. The price includes a $24 resort fee (?) and $45 in "tax recovery and service charges."

It's an RV park at the fairgrounds so don't expect much more than a place to park and plug in. It's clean and fairly quiet unless your are there on a weekend when something is going on. Our first day there was also the day of the annual Tomato Toss which was located right behind our rig. It was amusing to watch adults enter a huge fenced area with several tons of tomatoes "ripe" to be thrown at friends and strangers alike! We wondered what the fairground staff was going to do to kill the stench of rotting tomatoes. Unfortunately, they did nothing and the odor was pretty nasty - so much so, we kept the windows closed and the A/C on even though the the weather was quite nice. The music and noise from the event was quite loud but was turned off promptly at quiet time. We stayed for a week due to business and it's well situated for side trips to the bay area. Downtown Pleasanton has lots of interesting shops and restaurants and was fun to explore.

We love this park and the Gig Harbor area! Sites are level and wide. The park is immaculate inside and out. There are many long-term residents in the upper campground but all sites are neat and tidy. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel. The staff are all very nice and helpful. There is a nice laundry and game room with a couple of pieces of fitness equipment on site. It is a very quiet and peaceful park close to everything! The town of Gig Harbor has a sweet little downtown/harbor area with lots of shops and restaurants and close to Tacoma and Seattle. If you are into micro/nano brews there are several breweries within a 20 mile radius on the Kitsap peninsula! We came for a couple of days and ended up staying for a month at this great park! Planning to go back next year! The price reflects the monthly price of $375 plus metered electricity.

What a nice park! We only stayed overnight but it is definitely on our list for a longer stay next year! We arrived after dark and it was a little difficult to find our site but the friendly owner/manager walked down to make sure we got parked OK. The roads are on the narrow side and some of the trees are a little close but are easily maneuverable - just take it slow. Sites are spacious and have picnic tables, fire pits and BBQ pits. The area is wooded and peaceful and full of wildlife - deer are frequent visitors. There are trains but we didn't hear any horns and barely noticed the track noise. We were at the very back of the park and could not see the Wi-Fi at all but our Verizon phones had full bars. There are some long-term residents but the park and all sites are well kept. A great value and right off the I-5.

Warm, friendly staff, well kept campground and a nice level pull through space. Wi-fi connection was great. They even have a gas station on site - unfortunately they were out of gas the day we were there. Great place to stop on our cross country drive, and I am sure we will stop again.

This park is in a beautiful setting in the redwoods and the weather in the middle of July was wonderful. It is NOT in the city of Santa Cruz, rather in the town of Felton, about 7 miles from Santa Cruz on a very beautiful RV UNfriendly road. If you come here take the route that the park suggests. We did and were so glad! The Wi-Fi was great: one of the best we have had in our 2+ years of full timing. The spaces are so tight that we let the manager park the rig for us. The entire staff is very friendly and helpful. We were here in the middle of the summer so there were kids everywhere of course, being kids. The down side of this park is that they allow folks to come in and park at all hours of the night. We were here for 7 nights, and 4 of the 7 nights we were awakened by someone trying to park their rig between midnight and 2 am either next to us or close to us. Pets are welcome and the rule is they must be kept on a 6ft leash. Our 90 pound pooch is always on leash but others don't feel the rules apply to them and either let their dog run around off leash or have them on a leash so long they can get to the other side of the road from their campsite. I was nearly taken out by a dog on a long rope! The managers and staff see this but don't bother to enforce the rules. Overall, it's a nice little campground but we probably won't stay here again during the summer. We may consider giving it another try when the kids are back in school.
