“Lovely campground ”

Reviewed May 14, 2019

Overall Rating

Stopped over for part of a work trip and only wish I had more time to spend exploring. Agree with other reviewers— tons of wildlife (pigs galore! Don’t leave anything out! 😂), clean facilities, lovely park. Rangers were super helpful both via phone and in person.

“Very family friendly, well maintained, and lots of wildlife. ”

Reviewed Apr 29, 2019

Overall Rating

The RV site 7 has the best views on the RV side of the park, but to get lake views you'll need to dry camp. I liked the look of all the sites on the edge of the water, but site 25 probably had the best combination of view and space. However, it is next to a large tree that woodpeckers seemed to really like, so you might get woken up ea... more

“Awesome - wild pigs and baby deer”

Reviewed Apr 05, 2019

I was in the RV-only, water/electric section. This was a delightful, well-maintained campground, spotlessly clean, very quiet, with well-separated campsites. The ranger drove through numerous times each day. It was about half-full during the week, and full on the weekend. A herd of wild pigs, and a mama deer with two babies, made their... more

“Abundant wildlife, beautiful views.”

Reviewed Jul 17, 2018

Overall Rating

We were at Coyote Lake for three days in mid-July and it was HOT. (Spring would probably be ideal.) Wildlife is EVERYWHERE though! Besides the usual geese and waterbirds, groups of deer and fawns wandered through the campground every morning and evening, as did flocks of wild turkey with their chicks. Also saw herds of wild pigs and p... more

We just stayed here for 2 nights in Mid March (Booked 7 days in advance). It's a great campground. The RV Sites are well spaced out, level and surrounded by green grass (I'm sure in summer it would be brown). Sites are easy to get into. Electric and water hookups for each RV site. Dump Station is also available. It was great pl... more

“Very steep, winding road to get there”

Reviewed Nov 15, 2017

The campsites are basically clean and the campground is well maintained. Bathrooms and showers are really clean, which is important to me. The other campers were responsible and respectful. There are hiking trails and the lake for fishing. Be careful driving up and down that road. I kind of sideswiped something and messed up our r... more

We stayed here next to my sister and her husband who stayed in 12RV. It was the hottest weekend of the year and the campground was full. We really enjoyed the stay and I was particularly impressed with the bathroom and shower facilities and the rangers keeping an eye on things (lots of presence and keeping all campers playing within ... more

The road leading to the campground is narrow, windy (there are a few hairpin curves) and steep. I had reserved site #27 online, and when we arrived there was a tent right behind our campsite pad. A friendly neighboring camper walked up and suggested we take the nearby site #24 which was 1st come 1st serve. The ranger came around... more

“Get away from hustle and bustle of Silicon Valley”

Reviewed May 07, 2015

Coyote Lake is a Santa Clara County park, which unlike most California state parks, is not an overpriced, under maintained spot to park your RV for a few days. By contrast, the park is pretty great. Just outside of Gilroy - the campground offers visitors two loops. Sites with water & electric go for $30/night, while sites in the... more
