From the start

We are beginning our search for a place to camp using a tent and driving in with car. We are looking for running water and bathroom use. This place so far is right. Will be continued....

Unique, no-frills campground close to Monterey

I had my doubts trying this campground out.  Right next to a race track? No potable water?  But it turns out my doubts were unfounded.  My daughter and I had a great time here!  A short list of things we liked and things we didn't.


- Beautiful views!  Not every site has them, but most…

  • Playground and view of the racetrack
  • Porta Potties closer to the site than the walk to the bathroom
  • I was assigned one of these sites first.  These are really trailer sites and SOOOO close together.  I asked for a change and they accommodated.

Accosted by police

Called ahead. No answer. Arrived late. Pulled in to a spot. A few minutes later a police type SUV rushed up to me, lights flashing and bright headlights in my eyes. A very nervous acting, hostile officer shouted "put both hands on the wheel". She asked if I had a res and I tried to explain there…

Great park!

Campgrounds were great! We had site 95 and I have to say that our 26 ft trailer plus our truck was a tight squeeze. There were bigger sites that would've suited us better but it was a nice little tucked in site. The poison oak is prolific. Our site was literally surrounded by it. But if you can…

Great family campground

Great family campground with many trails around. Very clean amenities, great park rangers. All sites have a fire ring and picnic table. Definitely recommend!

Disappointing and overpriced

Convenient location. Just outside of San Francisco above the beach. Premium sites all washed out. Nothing more than an asphalt parking lot. We paid over $100 to be up against the road as far from the beach as possible. So disappointing.

Beautiful & Clean!

We loved camping here with our 25ft camping trailer. There was plenty of room for it on site 105, however if it was any higher it would be hitting tree limbs. Our site was private but easy to get to trails, showers, bathrooms. Etc. if you have littles the roads are paved so a scooter or bike could…

Redwoods Magic

Excellent facilities, stunning location, great hiking. Spot 20 is secluded, choose wisely here! One of the few sites I've wanted nothing more than just stay and hang.

Absent staff. Resort closed.

I drove to this area, telephoned, and Emailed the resort without any response. The resort is quite lovely, surrounded by trees and nature. It appears this campground is closed.

Immaculate, Interesting, Noisy

This happened to be the closest place to stop when I needed to rest one night on a coastal trip; as a 60-something wildlife specialist, I'm not into motocross/ATVs, and would otherwise not have stopped here. It was very convenient, however, cheap, and surprisingly interesting, so this will probably…

No cellular service

The RV camp spots are just parking spaces on asphalt. The lower spots can flood due to uneven pavement so the spaces to the north (left side of the parking area) are preferable. They also lock the entry gate at dusk so if you’re returning after that you need to exit your vehicle to manually…

Excellent campground w/ access to stunning trails!

We really enjoyed our stay at this campground. We reserved site #69 and found it to be very spacious and flat. We had plenty of room for our 10 person tent and still had room for a few more. However, not all of the campsites are like this. I recommend looking at campsite photos online to find a…

Wonderful Surprise in the Middle of Monterey, CA
