Loved this little spot. Quiet in the winter. Quarter showers. Firewood sold on site. Will def visit again
We stayed alongside the creek and enjoyed dining one night at the local restaurant. Highly recommend this campground
For reasons I can't fully explain, Laguna Seca is my favorite campground ever. It's a deep dive into Oak Chaparral and . . . race cars. Expect high winds, revving motors, and ticks. There is no drinking water up there at the moment but there are showers and restrooms. If you are riding your bike,…
Pistol shooting during the day, fireworks at night & race car driving (road course) all day.
No potable water, only electricity & dump. Site dirty, so we cleaned it. Pretty mountain scenery. Great mountain biking & hiking. 20-30 minute access to Monterey Peninsula.

Nice campground, some spots are a little tight backing in so if you got a buddy send em to spot.
I was able to only reserve one night about two weeks prior to my stay. On my way out I asked if they take walk ins and they do at $ 35. If we wanted to we would have been able to stay a second night, but we ended up driving North. We saw three deer, river, trees that have been there for several…

Great place for only $40 a night. It has all the essentials for your stay. First come, first served. Very clean showers and restrooms! Showers are included in the price. No need to buy annoying tokens. (You can also shower for $3 if you aren’t staying over night). This campsite is located in the…
We absolutely love this campground!!! The grounds are well kept and the store has just about everything you could need. Sites are decently spread apart and all have fire pits. There is no signal and super spotty wifi but that's the joy of camping here- being totally unplugged. ☺ Cross the river by…
Easy walk from the parking area with intermittent views of the river. A few stairs but mostly flat. The river along the camp site was dry due to the time of year. Most sites are very exposed, I would bring extra shade for your site if you'll be here in the summer. But a great view of the sky and…

There were still plenty of spot at 4pm.
This is an amazing campground on the big sur river. The Rangers do a pretty good job keeping the place up. Fishing is not allowed in the river but not practical anyway because people are swimming in it all the time. I'm a single guy with a truck camper. This is a great spot for families.
Was driving down the 1 and the dog needed a run. Happened upon it day after the 4th of July. They accept a few last min walk ins!! At 2pm. Saw otters in the ocean out front and camped next to a river with our very own little path to it. Hosts were all very welcoming and extremely…

This spectacular campground has it all. Beach access and beach camping. Bluff camping overlooking the Pacific. I choose a spot higher up the creek in the tall pines a short hike away from Limekiln falls. Check out the ruins that give the park its name.

Really beautiful spot. Make sure to note when bathrooms close because some close at 8pm but others are open all night. The ones nearest to the front gate are open all night
Perfect place for petrolheads,since it’s Laguna Seca! Great views from atop (campground A).
