Been going here for a few years. This was once a top place to go. The grounds are being over run by weeds and grass not being cut. Half the sites are not even close to be level. During our stay, 4 families that are long term occupants. With 1 family having a freezer outside his trailer. Restrooms and showers, and washer and dryers were clean during the stay. MWR needs to start putting some money into this place. Golf course as always gets the most dollars, it looks like they are building them a new club house. Looking at the previous reviews have to totally agree about the sites being hard to back into. Also the sites are sandy dirt all over. Only saw the camp host once, didn't get to talk to her.

Yes, location is great. Lots to do and enjoy in the area and that is why we were visiting. After reading previous reviews, I was apprehensive about what we'd find at the park and, well, it really is that disappointing. We camped in a 40' fifth-wheel. Check-in was smooth and then it all seem to go downhill. Very tight getting through the one-way road because of cars parked along the way. We had a horrible time backing into our site; narrow road and very narrow site. Once in, it was all sandy dirt. No exaggeration, I was filthy after having to crawl around the embankments that surrounded our slides to hookup. (I should've taken pics.) And then we discovered it was only 30amp. Thank goodness it wasn't summer so we didn't need AC. (We made reservations through DoDLodging, so you never know...) Had to park our truck in the parking lot at the clubhouse because it wouldn't fit at our site and no where to park nearby. Not a big park and quite a few permanent campers, but sites were pretty much free of clutter. The thing that shocked me the most was that the first two groups of people we met were just plain rude/unfriendly. Couldn't believe we were at a military campground. Wifi didn't work. Thank goodness most of the time we were gone enjoying Monterey and Big Sur. When we did watch TV we had to pause the show when planes took off, but it wasn't too often and considering how many air stations we've been to, it just doesn't bother me. Laundry machines were good and decent cost. Oh, one last thing. The camp host was out quite a bit and busy. She really kept up with things.

Make this review simple, next time in this area I will stay at any campground before staying here even if I have to pay $100 a day. Worst entry to park, no info given when registering. Sites a mess and on top of each other. Wasted enough time on this review, stay away.

As a student at NPS, we (family) are lucky to have the opportunity to stay here. It is great for me to get to school and a secure location for the family. Overall, for travelers, this is an awesome location. Those that have been to Monterey know that it is easily accessible to just about everything one would want to do in the immediate area. The campground itself is nearly forgotten. It is not up kept like others we have visited (nor even like the golf course it resides on). If you have a long rig and get a spot on the left side of the road, get ready to do some leveling. There are a lot of blocks around the trash areas, I imagine for that reason. The bath house is cleaned multiple times a day and the washer and driers are good to go (4 each). No playground for the kids, but there are usually enough kids around that there is enough for them to do. Internet....a bone of contention with visitors. It has been inop for about two months now, but they are working to get it fixed. The internet is beamed up to the park from the club house (via Ubiquity gear). Something crapped out and they had to hunt for someone that knows the system. Overall, a decent place. The price is high compared to other military campgrounds (think Nellis), but cheap compared to surrounding areas...
