Arroyo Seco Campground

DCIM102GOPROGOPR5461.Pack your sleeping bag, tent, and other camping essentials because it is time to spend the night in the middle of the Carmel Valley/Ventana wilderness at Arroyo Seco Campground. At an elevation of 900 feet and a plethora of large oak trees, Arroyo Seco Campground offers two different types of campgrounds: modern and primitive.

Modern Campsites

These campgrounds are more open and maintained. There are a few paved sites, showers, and flushable toilets. Water hydrants are in close proximity to all sites. Each site has ample space to accommodate an RV, as well as offers a picnic table, fire pit, and barbecue grill. Only one vehicle is allowed at the single sites ($25 per night) and two vehicles at the double sites ($50 per night). Each additional vehicle is $5.

Primitive Campsites

These campgrounds have you more in touch with nature. The only pavement is for the roads, showers are obsolete, and there are pit toilets. Water hydrants are still in close proximity to all sites. Only one vehicle is allowed at the single sites ($20 per night) and two vehicles at the double sites ($40 per night). Each additional vehicle is $5.

There is even one group campsite that can accommodate up to 50 people. Ten vehicles are allowed at the site. The site offers four picnic tables, a large fire ring, two large grills, two preparation tables, a water hydrant, and a pit toilet. It costs $75 per night and each additional vehicle is an extra $5.

Aside from camping, there is hiking, backpacking, bicycling, hunting, fishing, swimming and horseback riding in the Ventana wilderness. Hike to the “Gorge” to spend the day swimming, sun tanning, or cliff diving. Even take a longer and more challenging hike to a 20-foot waterfall with a small pool to swim in. No matter what, there is an outdoor activity for you, your friends, and your family.

Grab your bags because it is time to head over to the Arroyo Seco Campground down by the bay.
