“Good staging place, not so good for camping”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Reviews about traffic noise are accurate. Service upon checking is very friendly. Pool is sparkling clean and restroom, although dated, are clean as well. I don't think the place is worth what we are lying, but that's ok. My husband and I are happy almost anywhere in our travel trailer, but some peace and quiet after a hectic work week would have been nice. If you just need someplace to park while you tour the area, this is an okay place. But I would not recommend it as a destination camp ground in any situation.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

This KOA is actually in Prunedale a few miles from its supposed title address. The camp site contains lots of tarmac pitches and some greenery and is quite close to a main road. Check-in was easy and business like. The WIFI signal is strong but the speed is poor. The site looks a bit forbidding and has seen better days. The toilets were ok but the showers were rather run down and grubby. There is a swimming pool; laundry prices are reasonable. It is not a place for the discerning traveler and we would only stay here again if we had to.

Room Tip: Take earplugs because of the nearby roads
