Morgan Hill/Scott Valley

We are planning on visiting the San Francisco/Carmel area for a week in Sept/15 and are planning on staying at Coyote Valley RV Resort in Morgan Hill or at Santa Cruz Ranch RV in Scott Valley.We like the looks and amenities of the Coyote Valley Park,but are concerned about how disruptive the train noise is,during the night? Also any comments on our other choice,as there isn't much for pictures of the actual park on their website?
We will be travelling in a 43 ft MH and like the central location of either park,for travelling the area by car during our stay,but have the concerns as outlined above.
Anyone have any personal experiences in either park,that would care to comment?

Morgan Hill/Scott Valley

We have stayed at Coyote Valley on several occasions and we found it to be a very nice small RV Park. Good paved sites, very nice Club House, pool and little grocery store / coffee shop. It is located on a great walking/biking path, adjacent to a Jack Nicklaus golf course, great hiking and walking and Morgan hill is a very nice little satellite community. Train noise was not a problem.

Have never been to either RV park, but I have travelled through the Scotts Valley area a million times since I formerly lived in the Bay Area and travelled this area on business for quite a few years. Be aware that Scotts Valley is on Rt 17 near the summit of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Rt 17 is a long, winding (2 lanes in both directions) road that carries heavy traffic into the San Jose area in the a.m. and heavy traffic back in the p.m. It is considered one of the Bay Area's most scenic roads.....and also one of its most dangerous due to traffic volume and speed. And if someone should have an accident or break down, the traffic can back up for miles in both directions.

Getting your coach up there during midday should not be a problem. But then you may have to deal with the commuter traffic just to get out and start seeing the sights....and deal with it again when you return. Although Scotts Valley is not unreasonably far from Monterey/Carmel, it really is not convenient at all to San Francisco. One other point.....traffic on Hwy 101 getting to and through Morgan Hill can be brutal, especially in the afternoon.

Not trying to rain on your parade, just trying to help. Bay Area traffic during a.m. and p.m commutes can be, and oftentimes is, a nightmare. And it's getting worse every year. We travel there regularly....and I don't really miss it when we return home!! I would suggest you consider 2 locations to see SF and Carmel. I know that it is a pain setting up, tearing down, etc. But that is nothing compared to fighting the traffic you will experience trying to see such a large area from one location. You might do a forum search for suggestions on RV parks closer to San Fran. And, certainly, there must be a nice one down near Monterey or Carmel.

Have a safe trip...hope this is of value to you.
