Our visit to Pinto Lake was last minute. The woman I spoke to on the phone was very friendly and listened well to my needs. She make me feel welcome over the phone. We had trouble getting there on time and she worked with our schedule and made certain a space would be available when we arrived.
When we arrived, I spoke with "Candy" (sp). Candy was very sweet and did her best to get us as close to the playground as possible (we have four kiddos). They only take cash or check so I had to get my checkbook. Candy allowed me to get parked and set up before having to return with my checkbook. The space was nice with very well maintained hookups. All of the spaces are on grass and level. The grass was nice because we didn't hear shuffling feet at night or experience dust when we opened the doors and windows during the day.
The lake was beautiful. We did not have time to fish or paddle boat, but both options were available. There are numerous picnic tables and benches around the grounds for eating or relaxing. I noticed a staff member working constantly to keep the grounds tidy (and she was very friendly too!).
One small complaint - while there is wifi available, it was very slow. I gave up trying to use it.
We highly recommend parking here. The price was great and there was no extra charge for our 4 kids!
Nice little gem of a RV spot!
We stayed at this RV park June 14 thru the 16th 2013. Found this place using the RV Parking app otherwise I would have never known it was there. Upon arriving, we checked into the office and we were greeted by a very friendly staff who explained everything about the park and the lake. We pulled into our stall which by the way are a little close to each other but not really too bad. The facilities are very clean and the grounds were well taken care of. This place is secluded in the middle of the Watsonville agricultural community and it was very pleasant and quiet in the evenings. If you plan on going fishing just be aware it should be more for sport than anything else. The lake has a lot of blue-green algae - see the following link - http://www.mercurynews.com/bay-area-news/ci_16165095
This RV park is on a couple of miles away from downtown Watsonville so you get the seclusion but close to restaurants and shops. Also this place is very dog friendly. Our 110 lb. Akita loved it there and made a lot of friends. I would recommend this place if you want to stay somewhere close to Monterey and Santa Cruz. I will be coming back to this place!
Pinto Lake is a great place. Level, grass spots, with full hookups. It is probably the cleanest place we have ever stayed. Close to all the coastal attractions. We are looking forward to staying there again soon.
stay a week had two weddings sites grassy and level have 38 ft. motohome plenty of room lake great for boating (small) fishing plenty to do in area an coast we will surely come back when in the area
This is a great park,very quite, the staff very friendly, even though you are in the city you hear no noise from the traffic , And price is very reasonable. If I ever come back to this part of the country I will stay at this great park
Great place to stay!
We stayed here because we wanted to visit Santa Cruz and Monterey for Labor Day weekend. The park is very nice, clean and quiet. The area you park your RV is on the grass. The place is kid and dog friendly. Great place to stay! We will come back again!
We stayed here in a motor home during the Labor Day weekend. The park is located within a City Park, it is clean and has a nice lake view from the coach. It has ample spaces with green area. We would stay here again. Was very surprised when the owner refunded me a one night refund because we were not aware they didn't have cable TV
Love Pinto Lake!
We love this nice quiet park. It's minutes to the beach and area attractions. Will come back again and again!
We had great time at Pinto Lake. My husband and I wanted a quick get away and this is the place to be. It was so quiet and peaceful and the lakeview we had was beauiful. People here are so nice and friendly.We will definantly come again and bring friends. Dina
