Camping at Laguna Seca Recreation Area Provides Affordable Options When Visiting Monterey County


Nestled in the hillsides of Monterey County and just minutes from downtown Monterey, Carmel and Pebble Beach, the Laguna Seca Recreation Area provides convenient camping or glamping sites to enjoy the evening solitude. Dotted around the legendary WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca race circuit, 380 campsites host visitors from around the world who desire an eco- and price-friendly experience.

The County of Monterey’s Laguna Seca Recreation Area campsites are open year-round and features sites with full motorhome hookups to the more rustic tent sites. During the day, families can enjoy watching on-track racing or driving activities that occur nearly every day of the year, as well as hike or ride the adjacent trails of Fort Ord National Monument. Yet in the evening, the tranquil surroundings provide peace and quiet seemingly far removed from the hustle and bustle of city life.  

Campground life swells during the premier racing events and fills fast. Likewise when major Monterey Peninsula events are underway, such as the U.S. Open, AT&T Pro-Am, Big Sur Marathon, California Rodeo Salinas and Cali Roots Festival occur, event-goers are increasingly favoring affordable camping.

The Laguna Seca Recreation Area offers abundant amenities, including:

•    Restroom and shower facilities
•    Picnic table and barbeque pit
•    Hiking trails
•    Group meeting room
•    Convenient dumping station
•    Onsite overnight security
•    Official Raceway Store

To make camping even easier, Family RV, the official RV partner of WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, provides RV and Travel Trailers rentals. Family RV will deliver, setup and remove the rental unit to provide the highest level of customer convenience to enjoy the track and races. The company can even stock each rental with a kitchen kit, bedding and towel kits, camping chairs and tables, and much more.

Race fans will further appreciate the convenience of living onsite and enjoying the full experience during a premier race event.
