Carmel by the River RV Park, Carmel, California

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $73.00
Overall Rating:

Quiet and clean. Access is narrow paved road. There is foot access to a little river which is pretty nice but fairly steep. There's a game room, a grassy area and a basketball hoop for kids. No playground though. The game room is well aged but in good condition: TV, couch, 2 pool tables, ping pong, air hockey, a stocked game cabinet, card table, and a very out-of-tune piano. Other guests were quite and respectful. Friendly staff. Its a scenic area with many flowers/plants and well kept grounds. Privacy shrubs between sites are nice. But am taking a point off for the hookups. Our full hookups were in the very back corner of our camping space. That was OK for electrical but our city water hose and sewer hose were too short unless we broke down our hard-shell pop-up travel trailer so we could back it in deeper to reach. Depending on which site you get, the retaining wall at the end of campground may prevent some campers from making connections if you have only standard length hoses. Also getting in and out of site may be tricky for those with bigger RV/trailers. Bathrooms were very nice. Free showers but you have to re-press the water button every 10 seconds. No temperature adjustment but was comfortably set. Small grill for bbq at each site. Not fire rings for campfires. Did not use but gas grill and patio set available at common area near office. Not a whole lot to do there but that's probably the point: relax. The evenings were absolutely beautiful. They do offer a cash discount and we're OK that we didn't have full amount on hand at check in. At $73/night during Memorial Day weekend, good luck finding a better bargain in Carmel. We camped at Carmel by the River RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
