Marina Dunes RV Resort near Monterey California

Marina Dunes RV Resort is a boutique-style coastal RV park near Monterey, California, in a highly desirable and convenient area.

It is part of the Thousand Trails Encore campground network, which enables members (like us) to stay for a low nightly rate. Close to many scenic destinations along the Pacific Coast Highway, this was one of our favorite stops on our nine-week California RV trip.

Marina Dunes RV Resort is only a short walk along a nice pathway through sand dunes that take you to the beach on Monterey Bay. The beautiful city of Monterey, California, is 10 miles south along Highway 1.

Location of Marina Dunes RV Resort

Some local highlights include the famous Monterey Aquarium, Old Fisherman’s Wharf, Fort Ord Dunes State Park, whale watching, great biking trails, plus many famous and amazing golf courses.

Area Attractions near Monterey

One of our favorite things to do in this area is just going for amazing drives. California’s Highway 1, along the curving and cliff-edged coastline is one of the most stunning roads in the country.

Special attractions for drivers and car lovers

The first amenity is its location right off the beach. The dunes between this RV resort and the ocean have vegetation growing on much of them, dramatically keeping the sand down and making it more pleasant than most other coastal dunes.

Amenities At Marina Dunes RV Resort

Marina Dunes RV Resort has a nice clubhouse with comfy furniture, games, and tv. They also had free coffee, snack bars, and oatmeal packets every morning.

And the central office has a well-stocked store with groceries, including beer, RV supplies, clothing, and other necessities. We also liked touches like dog treats and a water bowl outside the office. And indirect post-lighting throughout the resort.
