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. You can read on for our detailed review of this great little RV resort.

What an amazing location! 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.

Amenities At Marina Dunes RV Resort

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.

Marina Dunes RV Resort is quite small, with only 83 RV sites. There have been multiple updates and expansions over the years.

RV Sites At Marina Dunes RV Resort

The most recent expansion, which I believe was in 2019, has a separate (earlier) entrance, and most of those sites are paver stones instead of gravel. This third section has larger and wider sites for today’s super-sized RVs.
