The Location Is Perfect!

My wife and I and our two dogs just had an awesome stay at this RV park! The weather was perfect, nice and sunny but not too hot. With close proximity to Carmel we went down to the beach and it was cloudy and cool, which is pretty normal weather this time of year. So if you want sunshine, the park is just far enough inland. The location is perfect with Carmel, Big Sur and Monterey near by.
