I needed a short-term home base when an inland heat wave changed my routing plans. Pinto Lake is in a good place, and plenty quiet for a good night's sleep. A gas station and a very nice supermarket are just a mile or so down the road. There are several farm stands nearby. The local library had a nice building, friendly staff, and good parking; their wi-fi was very slow. There is no wi-fi at Pinto Lake.

Pinto Lake has a very helpful and friendly staff. The baseball games ended early, and the park is closed to all but registered campers after dark. Other campers were fairly quiet, but sites are so close together that there is no auditory privacy even when neighbors talk on their phones in normal tones of voice. The resident flock of geese stayed right at the lake, where they did not clean up after themselves; this made walking by the lake quite unpleasant.

Watsonville has a system of wetlands and sloughs with walking paths. There are several museums in the area. The coast beach parks and Monterey are a short drive away.

Pinto Lake was super easy, especially after playing the reservation game with California State Parks. We needed a place to post up for a couple weeks with hwy access to the Bay Area and Big Sur. This place did nicely. Little league practice in the evenings was a nice touch. Wifi is super slow, but we bring our own. Great fruit and veggie stands in the area. Bathrooms are not clean.
