Our little campground is known as "Monterey Pines" and is in the middle of the golf course by the same name. (It is a military campground run by the Navy.) When we drove into the golf course, a sign said, "Park RV here" which was in front of the golf pro shop and not far from the #1 tee.
The campground itself has been here a while and looks as if it has been upgraded. The whole golf course looks like it has been 'redone' and given a shot in the arm. We played the course last week and though it is a short course, the tees, fairways and greens and in very nice shape. It is very well maintained.
The RV campground has holes around it on every side. And a couple of times, the Roadrunner got belted with a golf ball on top of the roof. Though there is a high net fence protecting one side of the campground, golf balls seem to make their way into the parked RVs with regularity which is a bit disconcerting.
Rule #1 for campers is that they are not allowed on the course. As a golfer and a camper, I can understand that and have no problem with it. And to my knowledge it is not a issue.
The area around our campsite it nice. There is no view to speak of (we are next to the back of a warehouse parking lot on the course). But there are some trees (DirecTV access was no problem) and our own little 'space'.
On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give this place a 6. But I would come back. It is not the campground that draws us here to the area. But the price is right and it meets our needs.
So that is a look at our 'spot' for the last couple of weeks in Monterey, California. The Monterey Bay region here on the coast is among the most scenic we have ever experienced. It may be my favorite place to stay.
