California Mission: Nuestra Senora de la Soledad

Mission Nuestra Señora de la Soledad was founded 9 October 1791 (13th in order) by Padre Fermin Francisco de Lasuén. The Mission is named for Our Lady of Sorrows.

The Indian name was Chuttusgelis. The Mission was twice destroyed by floods and the third flood basically marked the end for the Mission. A small chapel and adobe ruins are all that was left standing. The recreation currently standing was started in 1954. The church at the Mission is currently used the first Sunday of each month for Mass and at various times for special services such as weddings.

The Mission is about 2.5 miles from U.S. 101 just South of the city of Soledad. Take the Arroyo Seco Road exit from 101 and proceed West to Fort Romie Road (county road G17; 1.1 miles). Proceed 1.5 miles along Fort Romie Road to the Mission entrance and turn left into the Mission. The Mission is at 36641 Fort Romie Road (California Landmark 233).

Camp-California is concerned about the health and safety of our campers and adventurers. While camping and outdoor activities do offer the ability to self-isolate, we are encouraging all California residents and travelers to shelter in place until further notice. We recognize that getting outdoors is what you do best, and we will be here to reacquaint you with nature once we're cleared for adventure again!


Most private parks are open with 14-day minimums. If you are a full-time RVer looking to shelter in place, a member of the traveling medical profession, or a utility worker looking for a park please call our office and we can connect you with an appropriate location.
