Have you ever wanted to sell everything you own and just "take off?" Travel the country's back roads, paddle down a meandering stream, experience breath-taking mountain views, walk among 100-year old trees, and just marvel at America's beauty? That is the dream that my partner, Betsy, and I decided to make a reality. This blog describes our adventure. The food we eat, people we meet, sights we see, and the enjoyment we find in traveling.

RV Park Review – Moss Landing KOA (Moss Landing, California)

Moss Landing KOA Express Plus

Overall, I really liked this park because of its downtown location in a really cool sleepy coastal town where you can walk to everything.  The park is small with only 46 back-in sites.  It is called an “Express Plus” because it does not have the typical KOA amenities like playground, pool, horseshoe pits, recreation center, etc., which is fine with us.  I would rate it a 7/10.  This park would have scored higher but the sites were really close, the cable/wifi did not work and the cost of $68/night was extremely high.

All sites and patios are concrete and level and the roads are paved.  Sites have a picnic table and there is one community fire pit.  The bathroom and laundry facilities are nice and clean.  There is grass behind and in between sites and a small dog walk area with grass and poop bags (always important). 

What we liked the most was the location of this park.  You can easily walk to the beach and around town where there are restaurants, galleries, produce market, etc.  I love a paved site and patio.

The not so good was how close the sites are to each other and the price.  When we first arrived the park was only about 25% full and no one was on either side of us.  As the weekend approached and the park filled up we were sandwiched between two big rigs.  The price for Sun. – Thurs is $68/night and jumps up to $75.50/night for weekends.  Ouch!  Turns out that since we were there for 3 nights during the week, Betsy asked for the same price for one weekend night and they gave it to us......thanks.  

The brochure indicates there are 16 cable channels but many of them came in fuzzy and we switched to antenna where we got better reception and more channels.  There is wifi but that never worked either. 

You pay a lot for getting little but this is the only game in town if you want to stay in town.  Typical KOA in my opinion.

Spirit’s two cents was that she did not like this park.  While she did not like the RV park, she loved the dog beach just a five minute walk away.  The RV park is very small and there is not much room for walking which is a problem for doggy night walks before bed.
