The good: clean & neat Park guides were personable, friendly and helpful level sites w/good hookups pool & clubhouse very good The bad: WiFi very poor and extremely limited single phone in office so if the line is in use, every call goes into voicemail (if shuttled to the golf course and need shuttle to return, if phone is tied up, can only leave a message and hope it is picked up (waited 1/2 hour to reach a live person) “deluxe” spots are 20’ wide x 45’ long (parking is cramped to say the least), but they do have a fair # of vehicle parking spaces scattered throughout the property putting green is laughable (weeds growing out of holes and area not maintained) weight room equipment in disrepair train tracks directly across from park with multiple intersections within close proximity (think train whistles at all times of night) between tracks and facility is very busy Monterey Road - lots of traffic noise.
Bottom line, for the prices charged, disappointing experience during my week long stay
This was our second time staying at this park. And we will stay again. Our site backed up to the north side fence and was very quiet. We heard the train go by a couple times during the day but never heard it at night. If you are sensitive to noise ask for a site in the back of the park where the train is not noticeable. Even though there is a train it goes by so fast that by the time you realize you are hearing it, it's gone. The grass needed some weed & feed but as we learned from an employee, the park uses no chemicals on their grounds to keep pets and birds safe and the water table unaffected. The employees pull weeds by hand they never use round-up or any type of weed killer. Don't get me wrong the grounds still look beautiful, there were just some dandelions in the grass and a few weeds in the site.. My yard at home looks worse at times. The pool looked inviting but we did not use it, some did and looked as though they were have a wonderful time. The off leash dog run was a huge hit and I think the busiest place in the park. The restrooms were very clean, the store well stocked, and the staff could not have been nicer.
My experience: Pulled into the park and found the setting to be most appealing. Beautiful grounds, nicely laid out and very well maintained. Why the low review? First off, of all the empty spaces they had, they put me next to a very noisy, drunk and boisterous group. Before we even backed the TT in I asked politely if we could have one of the other, many empty spaces. The answer was a flat "No". If that wasn't bad enough, the train, which runs very close to the park, runs about once per hour. Day and night. If that's not enough still, the park is close to the freeway and a major highway. All in all, for the tired traveler, this is NOT the place to stay. Noisey, unacommodating, and no pull-throughs (as promised) the price tag simply doesn't justify the noisy environment. I'll pass this one by next time for sure. Their high ratings also makes me suspicious of Good Sam's rating system. I have to wonder if this will even make it to your screen. Very disappointed.
Awesome resort. Close to Hwy, shopping, and restraunts. Spacious sites and grounds well groomed. Beautiful pool and club house. Staff is very friendly and helpful. 20 minutes from downtown San Jose. Felt like we were home. This is our new home away from home and will be back often.
This is great park. The staff are friendly and helpful. We were escorted to our site and they helped to guide us in. Everything is clean and well maintained. I needed propane during my stay and I left the tank at the front of my space and it was filled and returned to me within an hour. This is a park we will return to.
This would definitely be a 10 with 2 exceptions. First, most of the sites are small for a 40' with 4 slides and no place to put your tow except for your site. Second is the trees that encroach the roadway/site. Even with a "camp host/guide" it was virtually impossible to get into the site without trees coming in contact with at least mirrors if not paint - ouch. Wifi was very spotty but I am writing this review with their wifi so not impossible. The staff were great but when mentioning the issues they simply said that the owner loved their trees. I do to - just not in the roadway.
