Park was ok, but not sure I'd go back if given the choice. No sewer hookups and some strange rules. We were told no foil insulation on windows allowed on our trailer (relatively new) but saw many old unsightly RVs in the park? - Few Miles

Stayed again to visit family. Still a good place except no sewer of course. No longer charge $5.00 for 50 amp sites. Mostly level pull thru and backin sites. Very close to neighbors. Management is extremely picky about EVERYTHING, so follow the rules. - teepee51

This campground has made big changes in the last three years. All for the best. Bath/showers have been remodeled. They are very clean and warm. - geo cong

This park is pretty with only a couple of trailers left, full of motorhomes and fifth wheels. They have very specific parking rules which required us to park our dually next to a bush, that scratched it. Nice but cramped laundry.30 amp electricity kept going off and on. No breaker to turn off electric so must hot connect. Sewer is not a proper fit so it leaks. No recycling available. Very expensive, not near groceries or shopping. In industrial area of town surrounded by poor neighborhoods. WiFi virtually non-existent, no cable and no antenna stations available. Sites and streets are paved with many many very high speed bumps. No discounts. - DRV

This RV park in silicon valley is clean! This park appears to have its own cc&r's and is better for it. Pool and gazebo surrounded by green grass. Postal service is evidenced by a row of mailboxes at main office. There is an electric lawn mower to borrow to keep up your very own 10'x 5' strip of green space should you reside here for over 2 weeks. It offers spaces to one-night travelers too. This is a nice, clean, groomed trailer park where you want to live while earning a living here in San Jose. I didn't want to leave. It is nice for city camping in your travel trailer & I would go back. It is just a few miles from World Famous Henry's High Life restaurant and HP Concert Pavilion - CasaRoll

Located in an industrial area with good access to the freeway. Park is very clean and well kept and has many long term/permanent residents. Dogs are limited to 20 lbs. The downside is that they do not take credit cards, cannot arrive after dark and must have a reservation. This park is not a resort, but a convenient place to stay for those visiting friends/relatives in the San Jose area. - nkwazi

OK first of all if you get a RV spot in San Jose, lucky for you. This place is somewhat quite, clean, and friendly. I was barely able to fit my 35 foot rv in my spot but the staff was very helpful in assisting me. Most of the RV are permanent residents and really nice folks. The wash room and showers were really clean. You are near a recycling plant, so there is some noise and intense smells at times. But its the best deal in town for sure. - Vanslam

Would never stay here again. Got the last site in what seems to be mostly fulltime campers. Odd set up and needed extension and level blocks. Didn't feel safe because of unsavory characters and the neighborhood wasn't the nicest. Showers cost. Not good value for money at all. Manager was abrupt and rude. No amenities for the high charge. Don't bother coming here unless you're desperate. - kiwitravelers

This park would rate much higher if it weren't for the noise at night. Starting about 3 AM the recycle trucks arrived and dumped their loads. Now, if you sleep like my wife, or wear a hearing aid, I can highly recommend the park. Showers were older, but spotless, including shower curtains. The rest of the bathroom was extremely clean. The manager was kind and made sure we had good instructions when calling in for reservations. Unlike a previous poster, we did not experience a smelly environment from the recycle center. - JDRobar

Actually we did not stay here but I went to this location to check it out and see about a reservation.
The website says "Upgraded and Reopened!
Guidelines RV must be no more than 20 years old or newer. After 30 days guest must vacate the grounds for a minimum of 24 hours before reapplying to return. Spaces rented on a first come, first served bases."
In addition, there is a telephone number, email address and a button you can click for a RESERVATION REQUEST.
I arrived at the RV Park and was I disappointed to see it. First of all, it has not been "Upgraded" as the website said in what I saw. It looks like it has been the same for many, many years. It is dusty. Next, the RV's that were there looked like most of them had been there for more than 30 days, several months or longer. I knocked on the door of the manager who is in a Foretravel that must be 30+ years or older but no answer. Went to the assistant manager, his motorhome looked as old or older, he said they do not take reservations, it is a first come basis and in the past year they may have had 10 vacancies. They don't try to make people leave after 30 days as that is to much trouble for them and the people in the rv's. They could if they wanted to. To much paperwork on their part.
So, don't count on what the website says in this case, it is not true at all. - Sherib

First, a word of caution about this campground: It is located 9 miles out on a very windy, narrow road. We were challenged by this road when pulling our 24' TT. That being said, this is a beautiful campground with spacious sites that are very private. The restroom and shower facilities are immaculate. The campground is located on rolling hills dotted with old oaks. The amazing thing about this place is you are 30 minutes from teeming San Jose and environs. We stayed here while exploring San Jose, Saratoga, Stanford Campus and Filoli Gardens. To return to our campsite after negotiating the freeways was wonderful, relaxing and invigorating. If you stay during the warm summer months, try to get a shaded site as it could get pretty hot back in this valley. We had #6 and were well pleased with this site. - Campy

We came up to San Jose to see the Winchester House but fell in love with the county park. Lots of different types of oak trees and wild life. Right when we pulled in, we saw a wild pig 150 yards of the check-in kiosk. We were the only ones there when we went except for the camp host. Looks like the county was doing some renovations to the tent camping areas. Nice place to bring your mountain bike, there were lot's of trail to ride or hike. WARNING TO ALL RV'Rs: Do not use the directions provided by Navtec, google maps. It directs you to take Quimby Rd. DO NOT TAKE this route! Three back to back severe switch backs and a road that narrows to one lane. Use CA130 as your route, this route may be too narrow for any RVs over 35' -- We did see a 40' traveling on it once. - Woods Family

Sites are for Elk's members only. No sewer hookups is a big minus. The facility has a large pool available and showers, steam room, exercise room. The park manager is very aggressive. - firedguy

Very nice people. This park is all gravel with very narrow sites. I actually thought it was a campground until i got here. Most of the campers here are permanently set up on a site with storage buildings. - Rweaver

Nice landscaping between the sites with fragrant blooming plants. Many trees within park. Great place if you are traveling the CA-101 & desire to be outside of the Bay area. Flat park with all paved roads for biking. Dog Park with shade. Site surfaces are concrete. Close to paved 10-mile walking/biking trail. - SteveDahl

Very neat upper class RV park with lot of long stay residents. Possibility to get propane on the park, though the nozzle did not fit our tank and we needed to go elsewhere. Good place to do a final stop before delivering the RV back to Roadbear RV San Leandro. Watch closing time for store. - crowny

We were here for 3 nights in a motorhome with a trailer. It's a very nice park with trees and well-taken care of......very park like. Staff well-trained and helpful. It fronts on what is basically a highway, and my partner is very noise sensitive. Since we had a trailer, we were advised we could ONLY be in a large, premium site, despite the fact that our 25 foot coach and small enclosed trailer could have resided in a smaller one. Unfortunately, all the larger sites are "up front," and close to the highway. The internet is easily overwhelmed as is often the case in RV parks. It'll work OK until ~4:00PM weekdays, then start lagging. I work from our little coach, and so I just routinely used my Verizon hotspot and didn't bother with the resort's insufficient internet. - Diesel24J

We stayed 7 nights in a 40 foot fifth wheel. We were here to visit family in the bay area and did all we could to avoid the heavy traffic. We just hate big city traffic towing or not. All roads into and around the campground are fantastic. The site pad was asphalt and mostly level. The site was quite large and the scenery was great. You will see plenty of turkey, deer, and rabbits every day and they are not very timid. There is plenty of room to walk/hike around the sprawling campsites and even down to the west swim area. We had three different cell providers and none of them work in the park. You may see a park WiFi on your scan but they won't give you access and say it is only for the police. We left the park and drove up the hill when we "really" needed cell connection. - Moe and Flo are on the go

Arrived for a first night en route towards Yosemite from San Leandro Roadbear RV pickup. Very friendly reception by park rangers. Our site was in hard dirt (bit dusty) with free outlook over the field before us (was quite empty when we stayed there on a Wednesday). Met some friendly chipmunks that warned us of a snake with interest in our picnic table. Most memorable of our stay was the walk over to the lake during dawn, and see the sun set over the mountain while doing some late night swimming. Visit the lake after most others have left. - crowny

This is a great park, better than we expected. It is far enough from the hustle that it feels like a getaway, even though it's only an hour or less drive for many Bay Area folks. We were here in a weekend in March, and over half of the campground was closed for the winter. The open loops were pretty busy, with only a few empty sites. There were a lot of tent campers, popups, trailers, and 5th wheels. Only 2 of us with A's and a handful of C's. There are some long sites so not sure why more A's weren't there.
We enjoyed a hike up (and I mean up) the Ohlone Trail. We were trying to imagine how busy the place could be in the summer. Not sure if we'd be as interested in that, especially because we noted that a lot of the sites would not have much shade. So that is our caveat: this is a great 3 season park, probably best avoided in summer (except maybe non-holiday weeknights) due to heat and crowds.
Park staff was super helpful. The store at the campground is not open during the offseason and I did not get firewood prior, so was lamenting not being able to have a fire. Then the awesome lady who drives the "FIREWOOD FOR SALE" Toyota truck drove by and kindly let me flag her down and brought me 2 bundles of wood for $15 (I tipped her well for her efforts).
Site 51 was massive, although no shade. We enjoyed being away from the more busy loop where the hookups were, but that area has its fun/advantages, too. It was very quiet both of our weekend nights, in spite of the campground being nearly full. - 70s Kid

I did not stay here! I called in the morning to make a reservation for a one night stay and was told to come on in, no problem. Upon arrival I was told they do not accept overnight, but would make an exception. I paid for one night, but after seeing the site which had garbage bags and a parked car blocking the entrance, I got a refund and moved down the road. - astreamer

Our one-night stay here was a mixed experience. The staff who run the park and who assisted us in the office (2 men, 2 women) were some of the nicest, most courteous people we ever have met. Friendly, outgoing, helpful. They graciously answered our questions, and I saw one of them going over a map with another guest to provide helpful directions. The park itself, however, is below average. It is not really a place for vacationers, most of the park is set up for permanent (or at least very long-term) tenants. In fact, the parkway lakes web site (not the KOA site) specifically states that they are looking for long-term residents and the park reflects this emphasis. A few of the long-term have nice sites, but many are occupied by older, run-down RV's. Some of these residents have installed storage bins and/or storage lockers in their sites, which creates an unkempt appearance. Some of the sites have two or even three cars parked in and around the RV, and the sites really do not have space for this. There are overflow parking sites around the office/pool area, and these were mostly full of residents cars, as well. As a result, much of the park has an over-crowded feel to it. I should emphasize that the park is not dirty, the office, pool, and laundry areas were neat and tidy and the grounds were clean. Our site was adjacent to some older units that looked as if they had been there a long time. The site was old asphalt, with a straggly strip of grass on one side. Cable was available, but I was not able to use it because the connection required a coax cable with a female end. I have a coax cable with two male ends - one for my RV and the other for the park connection, this has been the standard hookup in every other park I ever have stayed in. I was not able to access the Wi-Fi in my site or in the office area. One of the staff graciously tried to help me get connected, but we were unsuccessful. He would have been happy to help me further, but I did not have the time, we had to hit the road. Plus, I knew the problem was not with my laptop since I connected successfully at every other campground and several hot-spot locations during our trip. The bottom line, I would rate the staff as a "10" and the park as a "2". - bgw

We were very pleased with this campground. The manager and his team are just awesome. We can not wait to come back again. Has wide sites, a pool, and a stocked store. Lots of camping fun. - mmrvs02
