Monterey Bay, CA trip help


I will be in the Monterey Bay, CA area this summer with my family. We're traveling in a 32' class A motorhome with kids and pets. We plan to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Fisherman's Wharf. We are not towing a vehicle and walking long distances is not an option. We'd love to find an RV park where we could board the Monterey-Salinas transit, but that does not seem to be an option. Do any of you have any suggestions for parking, camping, or exploring this area in an RV?

Stay at Moss Landing and rent a car. They will pick you up or call the RV park for more direct information.

There is a RV park in Marina, north of Monterey on US 101. They are small and fairly expensive, and take reservations only by phone. I'd try them first.
Secondly there is a large RV park on 101 called Betabel. You can arrange car rental there, but it is some 20 miles away. RV parks are few and far between in the Monterey area. I've stayed at these two, and they are both 4 star.

Good luck........

Please excuse my mistake. Marina Dunes RV Park is on Hwy. 1. There are also limited sites at the Monterey County fairgrounds.

We go to Monterey just about every year with our RV. The Fairgrounds is the closest, some of the sites are a little steep and afterhours access is a little cumbersome. Marina Dunes is quite a distance from the aquarium, nice enough place, sites are a little tight. The Cannery Row is usually worth a little time and there are several places to eat. We usually end up with a table looking over the bay at Bubba Gump Shrimp. Anyway, enjoy the trip. JH

We love Betabel, but I'd suggest Marina. Give them a call and see what they suggest as to how best to get to the locations. At the very least, there will be plenty of car rental companies in the area. The KOA at Moss Point is further north & probably much pricier. We stayed there, and loved it, when it first opened. Before it was KOA.
