We got in on a Friday evening after dark. The road in is narrow and is just above the Carmel River RV park. If you have a large rig and are towing this could be a tight squeeze. We got to our site and found out we had to go nose in. Sites vary from spot to spot. Some you can back in others you can't. Also, hookups are at the end of the site so will need to think about longer water and sewer connections. The area isn't very big and sites generally will involve some maneuvering to get into. They also have tent sites. Probably not a big rig site; we are 30' and seemed to fit fine. Also some sites have more room than others. Ours was tight and no room for our awning. That said, it is a beautiful location. We did a 4 mile hike up the mountain and enjoyed the views. If you go I would be very specific when reserving your spot on what you want. We will go back now that we have seen the layout and know where we would like to stay. Very quiet campground; almost zero road noise during the day and at night also very peaceful. Nice place just recommend being specific and ask for what you want. Pool was cold and only being maintained at this time of the year.
Our first time here, and we enjoyed our stay. Facilities are clean and sites are nice. Gravel site was wide and level. Our site had good satellite but some are blocked by trees so if you have a roof mounted dish and you want reception ask for a clear site. We had a nice firebox on site and sites have privacy with plenty of room between sites. The beach is a 15 minute walk. Keep in mind that it is a sandy trail through dunes if you have issues walking on uneven surfaces. Nice beach to let our dog run off leash. There is a Walmart that is a 15-20 minute walk away and a skip & jump by car. If you are sensitive to highway noise it is right next to coastal Highway 1, so you will get freeway noise in the AM but evenings to us were quiet. It is close for us and we will be back.
We have been here several times, as we like the facilities. Pool, spa, and grounds are spotless. Staff is very nice and keep the place up nicely. That said, the one thing that hurts this place is the wind. Mornings were nice and warm perfect for enjoying the pool. Around 1-ish the mighty wind would start up. Part of RVing is being able to sit outside set up and enjoy the evening. I'd be willing to try it later in the year to see if less windy. Still a very nice place for a stopover or weekend getaway, just the wind.
Stopped here for a night on our way back from Las Vegas to avoid a windy drive. First, I would always make a reservation. When I called I was told if I show up without a reservation after hours I would pay more. That said, we arrived and the office also had well stocked store that also carries beer and wine. Within a 5 minute drive is gas, fast food, and a diner. A motel/hotel is also nearby. The sites are a gravel/rock type surface which was nice. We didn't have to level. We had a full hook up site and everything worked including cable TV. Trees blocked my dish but didn't matter. Nice place witha little bit of freeway noise but very faint. Nice stopping point. Fenced in clean dog park.
We stopped here as a quick one night stay before heading to our final destination. Place isn't really a destination spot. More of a stopover RV park or maybe a spot for a local. Park was pretty empty. Looked like a few people stayed there. We had full hook ups and everything worked fine. Spaces are basically dirt, but ours was pretty level. Pool was covered and has a grass dog park fenced in with tunnels that was actually nice. The staff was friendly and the store stockings were pretty sparse. Propane is on site, too. Bathroom and showers were basic but functional and clean. It is right off highway 5 around a bunch of gas stations and fast food places so not a bad stopping point after a long drive. I'd stay there again if need be.
We stayed here for 3 nights over the President's Day weekend. This is a very new RV park and is scheduled for expansion to include a hotel, air museum and other things. Sites have dish network and very tidy appearance. It can get windy here so put things up at night. Staff is very friendly: one gentleman drove our friend, staying in their RV next to us, to a CVS to get knee braces. Dog park is very nice and clean. I think once word gets out, this will be a popular place to visit. It isn't far for us, so we will be back.
We live close by and have been here twice, great place for a weekend. The atmosphere is is fun with walking distance to dining and the beach. Place is well maintained and quiet at night. We were there for a benefit raffle for terminal kids last time through, staff was fantastic, kudos. Will be back again and again.
We liked the campground due to the fact that is was close to the casino and we were on a gambling trip. While the RV park itself was fairly plain the staff was nice. We didn't get a chance to use the pool or hot tub. Shuttle service to and from the casino was fast. We will and are returning.
