“nice campground great host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

This RV park is clean and comfortable with beautiful view and super nice campground host! A little difficult to get to but worth it once you arrive. The campground host is very helpful with places to go, directions and bits of local advice.

We only stayed one night. Yes the spaces were a little close, but you still had your privacy. The view was beautiful, the restrooms were clean, internet was good and cable TV was clear. Maren the host could not have been nicer to us to assist in our stay.
I would recommend this place to a friend.

Yes it's a bit of an intelligence test trying to find the place but it's fine once you get there and we had no manoeuvring problems in our 23ft RV. Usual hook ups and rest room facilities, nice quiet location, not expensive - after all we are in Monterey / Carmel country and it suited us fine.

An absolute gem of a place. A little off the beaten track and up a steep hill which is not the most welcome off climbs after 90 miles in the saddle. But well worth it. Carmel is not geared for cycle tourists needing to camp. Saddle mountain is approx 30 minutes ride out of Carmel on a reasonably wide hard shoulder but a particularly busy road. Not recommended at night / dusk.
The RV park has everything you could want, especially lovely staff, well equipped, reasonable, clean and tidy site. Views in the morning are fantastic and if you make it back along the valley road to the PCH / CA1 make sure you stop at the Wagon Wheel for breakfast - Amazing.
Thanks for a lovely stay Maren, Saddle Mountain rocks!

I don't know why people are so freaked by the road up to Saddle Mountain. It's not that bad (see my photos) and it's so worth it as this park has the most fantastic views of Carmel Valley. The people are really friendly too...so the one person who had a problem must really have hit an off day. I find the community in this park friendly, helpful and the park itself is centrally located to Carmel, Monterey and Big Sur. And, the staff in the park will help you figure out the local activities if you just ask. The pool will open in June...and I can't wait!

What can I say about Saddle Mountain RV/Camping Park in Carmel Valley?

We've RV'd here numerous times- each time gets better than the last. The breathtaking valley views, the convenient location (all within striking distance: HW1, the beach, Aquarium, 17 Mile, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Big Sur, Garland State Park, restaurants, and grocery stores), pet friendly (must be on leash), hiking trails, nice clean bathrooms, hot showers, free Wi-Fi, and plenty of parking. Our 4 year old especially enjoyed swimming in the pool, playing badminton and horseshoes, exploring on her bike, and nature walks.

The only disappointments were not being able to have a fire-pit wood campfire (only propane), a very chilly "heated" pool, and no on-site laundry facility. However, the pleasant staff made-up for it by being so professional and accommodating; they referred us to local launderettes within 1.5 miles. Lastly, the one-lane bridge looks precarious- it's safe. Just take your time crossing it and note that the left turn up the hill to the RV park will sneak-up on you. If you're towing, it might be a good idea to unhook prior to turning onto Schulte Rd. while you're on Carmel Valley Rd.

As world travelers and having lived in other countries, I must say this is one of our favorite places on earth.

Cheers and happy travels!
