“Great location & presentation, Showers.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Great little park - beautiful presentation and location. They were very accomodating as we didn't have a reservation. Only issue was the showers... Unfortunately the worst we have encountered in our RV trip (12 day trip and no more than 2 nights in one spot) with 1 minute timer (takes more than a minute to get hot water) and poor pressure that turns to a dribble when another shower is turned on. Overall would recommend for the obvious care and pride the owners take in their business.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We stopped here on day 8 of a 21 day trip and compared to other sites it was not the topmost place we had stayed but was very nice, quiet, and with friendly staff and clean facilities. No laundry so make sure to do that before you get there, but all hookups that you need, a smallish general store and a nice game room for the kids. May be a bit overpriced but for a safe, clean environment was worth the money to us.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We stayed here over labour day weekend for 2 nights as it was the only RV place we could find with sites available. Th owners have made the place look nice with gardens and all sites have a hedge that separates them.
It was very quiet, and the facilities were maintained well and were clean. Unfortunately the showers were a little frustrating as the water would only run for a few minutes at a time and then turn itself off, not so helpful when you are trying to shower yourself and a small child.
Wifi worked well, but expensive for a place to park your camper van for the night. I'd try somewhere else before staying again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

This park is one of the best we have ever stayed at. While not cheap, it is worth every penny if you like a well maintained, clean, pretty place to stay. The park has a lot of Foreign visitors in rented motorhomes who stop in for a night or two while touring the west. We stayed for a little over two weeks in a diesel pusher towing a jeep and had a great time. Spaces are a little narrow but private with hedges between the spaces and very quiet at night. No pull thru's which was not a problem for us. Very convenient location to Carmel and Monterey with great weather, less fog than Monterey. We will be back next year.

this campground is too expensive for what you get. (75$)
no discounts, very small sites, no pool, unfriendly reception, just cash,
reservation only possible for more than one night,
Its hard to find something in carmel, but I wouldn't come back again.
better check out the neighbour campground. there is a nice pool.

pos. fast and good working wifi
