Carmel By The River RV Park

carmel river rvCarmel By The River RV Park, 27680 Schulte Road, Carmel, CA 93923

Updated since our May 2017 visit! Advertised as the ‘Monterey Peninsula’s best kept Secret’, this small, quiet, somewhat secluded park promises to be a real gem!  All the amenities you will need, and only 4 1/2 miles from downtown Carmel.  (7 miles from Montery)  Privacy hedges border the 35 back-in sites, and the Carmel River flows alongside to the north.  A couple of caveats:  Schulte Rd, off G-16, (Carmel Valley Rd) will get narrow and winding.  Guests are advised to disconnect any trailers or towed vehicles before continuing past the Schulte entrance off G-16.  Once on Schulte, it’s a mile, last 1/4 of which is very narrow.  Watch your overhead clearance, as well as the sides.  Take it slow!  Also, Big Rigs are advised that “When traveling on Hwy 68, avoid taking the Laureles Grade (G-20)”.  That pass is a great shortcut for commuters from Laguna Seca to Carmel Valley, but it’s quite steep!  Sound tuff?   Well, you won’t find me taking the shortcut.  Carmel by the River RV is “Good As it Gets” in Carmel!  It represents what you get with an on-site owner-manager, (in this case “Mike”)  And thanks so much for the tip on this place from our friends, Stan and Renee!

We’re really here!

Office, showers, etc.

Well cared for!

  1. Extremely tight road to get to this place, we have 40 foot Class A Motorhome, meeting oncoming traffic is not a good thing. Was maneuverable in the big rig, spots are tight slide outs touch the foliage dividers separating spots. We didn t use anything other than water, power and septic. Friendly staff. Had we been told about the road to get there, we would have found another place elsewhere. Seems that there are many full time residents, as traffic in and out before and after work hours was the most of the traffic. One other rig showed up in our 3 day stay. Dog friendly too! Nothing much to be entertained by at this place. We more than likely would stay again if in the area. Just be sure to reserve a spot ahead of time. Limited restrooms and two showers per sex. We camped at Carmel by the River RV Park in a Motorhome.
