Coyote Valley RV Resort - San Jose, California
Entrance

We choose this RV park since our friends live in Morgan Hill and we were stopping by for a visit with them on our way north. It made a perfect stopping point between Pinnacles National Park and Bodega Bay (our next destination) and allowed time for a few evenings of catching up with them.

The RV park is a typical RV park which seemed to be full of long term residents maybe working in the area?  It has all the amenities you would expect for a top rated RV Park with nice laundry, pool, common areas, and clubhouse.

 

Sites are rather tight but you fit with enough room for your tow vehicle. A few fifth wheels looked like they had not space for their vehicle and therefore had to park in guest parking. Based on the signs we saw around the facility it looks like additional parking is difficult but they try and keep a firm hand on the situation.

 

The park was almost full when we arrived and we only saw 2-3 empty sites. They gave us a handicapped site right across from the office which made for easy access to the laundry and pool.

RV Park: Coyote Valley RV Resort
Location: San Jose, California (south side by Morgan Hill)
Site: 68
Cost: $68
Services: FHU
Comments: A nicely maintained and highly rated RV park centrally located in the southern portion of the San Francisco Bay area.  Sites are tight but our rig fit along with the tow vehicle. Lovely swimming pool, spa, fitness room, laundry, etc. Exactly as described by Good Sam, Woodall’s, etc. Train tracks nearby, of course, and road noise but didn’t keep us awake.

Other than that it was right next to Hwy 101 for easy access to our friends house and local wineries. Plus the RV park is located next to the Coyote Creek bike trail one of the many trails in the extensive San Jose bikeway system.

We had a great time out with our friends  and over to their house for Black Sea hamsi caught 2 days earlier in northern Turkey and flown to New York and then San Francisco, as fresh as possible. It was an excellent treat, butterflied, drenched in olive oil and put on the grill, thanks guys! Delicious and a fun filled evening full of food, drink, and too much laughter (if that is possible)!

  1. We’ve thought of staying there, but never made it. Would you stay again? I missed the cost (empty) although I seem to remember they were pricey.

    1. Thanks for finding my error Nina (too busy and in too much of a hurry – no excuses)!! I added the price and yes, it was pricey. It was $68 for the small size lot. We only stayed there due to proximity to Morgan Hill and our friends house AND we wanted easy on/easy off Hwy 101 as we were heading north. We didn’t spend much time in the park since we were gone most of the time. But we would stay there again, clean, quiet, peaceful, everyone was friendly. I did spend one morning doing laundry. The laundry facilities (7 washers, 7 dryers – all worked) were nice and other people seem to respect one another (i.e., not take all the washers/dryers). WiFi worked fine. But if we were touring (instead of visiting friends) and/or staying longer we would probably head down to the Uvas Reservoir area and stay at the campground or RV park. It’s close to many wineries and a bit more out of the way.

      Just a side note, Monterey Highway (used to be called Blood Alley) is a divided highway with a concrete divided in the center. This means if you leave the RV Park (which is on the east side of the road) and want to head south then you must go North first and then turn around. No problem though. This also means you should enter the park from the south. If you come from the north on Monterey Hwy then you cannot make a left turn into the park. The highway is pretty quiet there and not much traffic so it had a feel of the country, almost. And right next to the golf course, the bike trail, the Remote Control Skypark, Hwy 101, and the quaint, beautiful village of Morgan Hill with great restaurants and quite a few of their own wineries.
