Saddle Mountain Ranch Campground, Carmel, California

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $90.00
Overall Rating:

This RV park is a hidden gem in the foothills above Carmel. It's a 5 minute drive up the gentle hill from Hwy 101. The park has a "communal" feel with multiple gazebos with gas fire pits and comfortable seating. They have a huge swimming pool which I am sure is enjoyed in the summer. There is no wood burning at the camp sites, but I really enjoyed meeting other campers by the fire pit. The staff is amazing. Great people that make sure your stay is comfortable. The sites are good size and the roads in and out are good. When you are driving up the gentle mountain it is "one way" so you don't run into other trailers coming down. When you are driving into the campground, you will be in a rural area of horse farms. Gorgeous views of the mountains and stars so bright at night it was crazy. This campground is exceptionally "quiet" at night and very peaceful. It was full when we were there and there were kids and dogs. But at about 9:00 pm you would never know there was anyone there but you. The park is really clean and has lot's of trails to hike. It is located less than 5 minutes from grocery stores, Starbucks, etc. I would highly recommend this RV park and look forward to going back. We camped at Saddle Mountain Ranch Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Marina Dunes RV Park, Marina, California

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $90.00
Overall Rating:

They have an amazing website which gives absolutely no mention that the RV Park is 100 feet from Hwy 101. They have a "site" map which shows the park and a small access road behind the park which leads to the pathways to the gorgeous beach (which is why we booked it). Nowhere on that map or on their website do they say anything about the park's location ON the highway. We arrive from a 5+hr drive to find an extremely noisy office and extremely noisy RV park as we were right on the highway. Motorcycles pass by and you are repeating every word you say as no one in the office can hear you. We decided to give it a try. They "placed" us in a space as close to the freeway as possible as that's where the "small" TT spaces are located. We agreed to "try" it for a night. The spaces were exceptionally small. The park roads are very narrow getting in and out. We left the next morning after a horrible night of absolutely no sleep. I give one star for an incredibly misleading website and failure to disclose the close proximity to Hwy 101. They sell ear plugs in the office. Beware of this park. We camped at Marina Dunes RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
