Almost every gray whale and monarch butterfly in existence passes through this area during its annual migration, and after a weekend of Monterey camping, you'll know why: it's a land, air, and sea paradise. Catch the annual whale parade from your hike-in tent campsite at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, or from a Laguna Seca Recreation Area seaside bluff, where you'll find a view of the iconic raceway. On a clear day, you can see several California counties from your rustic spot at Fremont Peak State Park, and on a clear night, head on over to the astronomical observatory to soak up the stellar celestial sights. Whether you're seeking solitude in a secluded cypress grove just steps away from staggering ocean views or an ancient redwood forest brimming with miles of pristine hiking, Monterey camping offers it all. Dig into some rugged, tent-only camping in the wide-open, grassy meadows at Andrew Molera State Park or try your luck on the seriously-sought-after, first-come, first-served sites at Limekiln State Park on the iconic Big Sur coast. Monterey camping is a Mother-Nature-worshipping, ocean-lover's nirvana.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium houses 35,000 sea creatures representing over 550 species spread throughout 34 galleries with 200 exhibits.
After you set up your tent be sure to explore the property and meet the animals. There are chickens, turkeys, goats, emus, a burro, doves, a llama, cats, and dogs.
The burro likes carrots better than apples, if you happen to have any.
I stayed after a rainstorm and everything was green and lush.
Bring an apple to make friends with this sweet llama.
Three goats live in the barn and love to show off their trickster skills.
