“If you’re wanting a “traditional” boring campground, you found it”

Reviewed Apr 03, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a comfortable campground but sticklers on everything. Myself and my guests were awaken by the camp attendant Bill multiple times during odd hours of the night over a minor issue that most definitely could’ve waited for daylight. Other than that our stay was fine. Campgrounds are clean but remember you are in Monterey so if you’... more

“When they say 21’ limit, they mean it. ”

Reviewed Mar 08, 2018

Overall Rating

We were hopeful from previous reviews that a polite ask for an exception would allow our 32’ class A to stay for the 3 day minimum. Unfortunately it didn’t but because it was already dark, the ranger said we could stay overnight. No 3 day stay would be possible. Particularly a bummer because we got in just fine to the spaces but rules ... more

“Great place to camp in Monterey ”

Reviewed Mar 07, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a great place to camp in Monterey. Hiking trails with awesome ocean views. Nice bathrooms with hot showers. Get there early. The sites fill up fast. We got there at 2:00pm and by 4 all the sites were full. 1.5 mile walk to everything downtown. We will stay here again. Great for small rigs not so nice for larger rigs. T-Mobile 2... more

“Friendly and Understanding Staff”

Reviewed Feb 27, 2018

Overall Rating

I don't have much to add to what other reviewers have said about the logistics or amenities of the park, but I can add another voice to vouch for the friendliness of the staff. The staff on duty gave us permission to stay beyond the 3 day limit (just asked that we move sites) and also allowed us to stay even though our camper was beyon... more

“Quiet, comfortable sites within walking distance of Monterey ”

Reviewed Jan 17, 2018

Overall Rating

We camped in our pop-up camper 3 nights while kayaking in the Monterey area. Site 21 gave us a quiet spot to unload out boats and hang out. A 1/2 hour walk down the hill on quiet local streets got me to Trader Joe's to pick up a few missed items. Adequate showers included, clean facilities.

“Good place unless you have a big rig”

Reviewed Nov 20, 2017

Overall Rating

Our rig PeeWee is 33 feet long and we tow a little Nissan Versa. We made it up the long, steep hill to the campground and found a site that looked like we could fit. We set up camp and thought it was all good. The bad news was that the camp host (nice gentleman) asked us to move. He said normally they don’t take large RV’s but he wo... more

“Great spot for a visit to Monterey!”

Reviewed Oct 20, 2017

Overall Rating

Great park right in the middle of Monterey. No problem fitting our 26’ Airstream and there were more open spots that can fit larger (medium sized) RVs and trailers. Tons of tent campers as well. We arrived mid-day Thursday and had our pick of sites. Later that night and through the day on Friday it pretty much filled up. I would rec... more

“Great for small rigs, walkable to downtown.”

Reviewed Jan 24, 2017

Overall Rating

As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a campground for smaller rigs and tents. The drive up to the campground is steep, windy, and narrow. The road climbs through a beautiful neighborhood nestled into a dense forest. The campground itself is also nestled into the forest - there are few level or uniform sites. This is no big de... more

“Urban, but damn good spot for being urban.”

Reviewed Jun 06, 2016

Overall Rating

Great place to post up in Monterey. Plenty of sites in the trees or next to a park used by local families. There are some rough folk that also use the free facilities, but they never presented a problem. The manager runs a tight ship.

“Cozy Park nestled in the trees”

Reviewed Apr 15, 2016

Overall Rating

This is why I like Campendium! I wouldn't have known about this place otherwise. We knew it was first-come, first-serve but had a few viable sites to chose from about 2 p.m. on a Thursday. Looked like the park filled by sundown. I was a bit concerned about what we were going to find as we wound our way through nice neighborhoods and up... more
