To clarify about the price, we stayed in a river site ($70) for one night and non-river ($60) for one night, plus an add-on fee of $5 apiece for each of our dogs for each night. Voila, the average was $75. Pretty pricey, like everything else in the area seemed to be, plus they all seem to tack on a dog fee because they can, while not offering anything like a fenced run for dogs. It was certainly a beautiful setting with the sites among the redwoods and very pleasant management. Restrooms/showers received very heavy use and not particularly clean. The complete lack of cell service was a nuisance and for that kind of money it seems they should at least provide Wi-Fi. There's no TV either. It is a lovely setting, of course, but a lot of money when those services are non-existent.
This park is immaculate with good sized sites and very friendly management. Restroom/shower facilities were excellent. Also, it has the best and prettiest fenced dog run area we have ever seen in an RV park. Easy in and out and close to I-80.
This park is uphill on a steep, winding road from the Carmel By The River RV park, where we also stayed. We arrived late and struggled to get into a small space with a vehicle parked right across from our space on the side of the narrow, steep driveway. There were numerous kids running around in the driveway on the way in, which was unnerving in the semi darkness. There was only one toilet and 2 shower stalls in the main bathhouse. There is a second restroom up the hill which evidently had 2 toilets, though I did not use it. There is a large tent area and the sparse restroom and shower facilities were in constant use, so I never tried to get into the shower. On the positive side, the manager was quite pleasant and helpful when we met her the next day. The setting was pretty, though extremely crowded with a very confusing layout. It was very pricey at $75, like all the area parks seem to be, and I would not want to try to negotiate the drive up the mountain, parking, and set up in a larger rig.
We stayed there 2 nights because it was the best we could find in the area and it, like the others, was quite pricey at $75. We reserved in advance for late check in and the manager insisted the next day that she had told me that we had to pay cash even though she had taken a card number. She had not; I wouldn't have forgotten that. It is a beautifully landscaped campground with privacy hedges between the sites, which are close together, and amazingly quiet at night. The restrooms were clean, but I would think that with all the money they spent on landscaping they could afford to put $2.50 latches on the doors to the toilet stalls. There is no privacy in the shower area, where 2 stalls share a common area with a bench and hooks on the opposite wall where they can't be reached from the shower. The only way to avoid dressing in font of strangers is to drape your towel on the curtain rod, dry off in the shower, and wrap up in said towel to retrieve clothing from the common area. Also, you have to press the shower button every few seconds to keep the water running.
