1 Park near Marina, California
May 2016 - $71.00
The campground is approx. 8 miles north of Monterey's Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It's a bit pricey, but as they say, location, location, location. Easy on and easy off of Highway 1. It is steps away from Marina State Beach. The campground is NOT on the beach, but a nice little walk to the water, maybe ¼ mile or so. The bathrooms are very clean, have been updated in the last few years, and they keep on top of their cleanliness. There has been a change of management, if you have had problems with the park in the past, I would suggest you try them again. The staff was very friendly and really wants to make the campground top notch.
The sites are quite wide - our 30 ft. Class A and our car were parked side by side. Their are shade trees and bushes between the campsites which helps for privacy. We a stayed 5 nights. - Living the Life

After reading all of the previous reviews, I was a bit concerned about staying for a week. Our site was level, trees and tall bushes offer much privacy. We found one water bottle and a bag left by previous campers on our site. Walking through the campground there is a lot of difference is space size, they definitely match your rig to the site size. The woman who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. The walk to the beach was about a quarter mile, easy walk along a trail beside beautiful flower covered dunes. This is a small park and it is right next to highway 1, but the noise didn't bother us. There is a picnic table, paved patio and a fire pit that you can move where you wish. We stayed 7 nights, paid for 6 and got the 7th night free. We also got a good Sam discount which brought the price including tax to 60.00 per night. We will definitely be back, this is a very nice campground. - Jeannehanes

The website does not accurately show this park since it shows photos of Monterey when the park is located in Marina. The site was dirty enough for me to spend 15 minutes picking up cigarette buts and trash from previous renters. The young woman at check-in couldn't turn down her music enough to discuss our visit. I have camped for many years and am realistic. For example, I am not criticizing the noise level since you are right on the HWY, but all in all, you can do a lot better than this park. With attention to detail, it could be a lovely site. - campjul
