Estimating re: rate, I didn't note it. Very close to Magic Mtn. but a bit hard to find (due to a closed road). Efficient 'after hours' registration. Park could use some re-furbishing. Laundry room was being upgraded during our (1 night) stay. Small kids playground, dog area, fire rings/pit. 2 large pools-- one only for adults, other kids could use. That seemed a bit 'off putting' for a family park but I understand some would like it. Kids not allowed in spa. There is a wading pool that adults must be w/the kids. We didn't go in the store but it looked large. Only stayed 1 night.

I am estimating on the rate, I didn't note it down. This was by far the nicest place we've ever stayed. So clean, tidy, fresh looking, organized and spacious. Love the winery theme. It is right next door to Firestone Winery - you can walk there via a gate from the park to the vineyards. Also near Sylvestre Winery (but not walking distance). They have 3 clubhouses but we only viewed (1). Game room, laundry, and even meeting space room. Mention the RV park for discounts at the wineries. The pool is large and sparkling clean with lounges and shade. The restrooms /showers are almost beautiful - like in someone's home. The sites are gravel/grass, with nice plastic tables and grills. The staff is friendly and so welcoming. We met the nicest people here. Many with dogs. They have a nice fenced dog area. Many very large, expensive RVs parked here which adds to the element of class. It does get very windy though, you will have to watch your awning. They offer late check out in case you want to enjoy the pool a bit longer or hit the wineries and come back. We would definitely stay here again.

For what it is (state park), this was OK. This park had availability when all the beach-parks were sold out. We were a bit disappointed about how far away the beach is -- my husband estimates 4 football fields of walking. The Sand Dunes aren't clean; several littered items and evidence of last night's parties along the way. Surprisingly the beach / ocean were very nice, and the sand so clean. Down the beach is some kind of refinery, and you can smell it. There were plenty of sites available, the area is all flat (i.e. should have brought bikes). There is a communal sink for dishes, etc. but don't look up if you don't like spiders. The restrooms/showers are pretty clean but it's a state park - wear your flip flops. Ditto on the spiders. Don't use the picnic tables unless you like red ants (bring your own fold up table). The squirrels kept the kids entertained. Many tent-campers and families there. Park rangers very nice and helpful. Nearby there's a good shopping center with a Vons, etc. We spent next day in Santa Barbara, 25 miles north. This was a good 1st-2nd night of the trip and we would stay here again but only for 1 night.

Very nice place. Easy to find. Had everything we were looking for: clean bathrooms, nice showers, laundry room (bring quarters - washer $1.50, dryer $1.25), rec. room, complimentary coffee, store. Site was clean and ready. Sites have chimineas (outdoor fireplaces) and good tables. Met several families from other countries i.e. Netherlands, Germany, etc. Highway noise referred to in other posts did not bother us. It sounded like waves. It's a slight hike across the dunes to the water but it (the sand) was beautiful and clean. Located slightly north of Monterey. Parked RV on side streets near Cannery Row. Park is very well kept up and I would definitely stay here again.
