KOA called before our reservation said no elec. due to a store. so no fee if you want to use your generator. 2 nights no elec. When we got our receipt we were bill for all the days full price. I went to the office and asked to speak to management they never would respond back... Down loose wires also blocking exit I reported to get some cones up and they just said ya later... by evening done.


Thank you for your comment. We did respond back and we did give you the promotion of buy 6 nights get the 7th free. I'm sorry if you feel we did not respond fast enough to the cones, we had emergencies throughout the entire park.

The staff was very nice, but the place smelled of sewage and there wasn't a lot of space around each spot.


Thank you for your comment. We apologize again, but the due to the power outage, it ruined our sewage pump and we installed a new one asap. We disinfected the affected area above health code regulations. We are sorry you had a bad experience.

WiFi didn't work. TV was out first day. We couldn't fit into original assigned spot because of incline. Overall, park needs work.


Thank you for bringing it to our attention. You stayed with us after a major storm which took out the utilities in our entire area. Our services were poor during your visit and we apologize for that inconvenience.

Pulling into koa was a challenge, needed to unhook for pull through as downhill and dangerous turn for site. It was nice being close to Monterey and Santa Cruz


Thank you so much for sharing your experience. Our entrance is a not traditional but it overall manageable. we are sorry you had a bad experience and we hope your future camping meets your expectations.

We love staying here and we always have a good time! Staff is very friendly and helpful! Last couple of visits our fire pit has been non-functional but we still enjoyed ourselves!


Thanks so much for continuing to kamp with us. We will look into the issues with the fire pits and hope you do not have to deal with that on your next visit. Thanks again.

Employees were friendly and pleasant. Bathrooms need desperate update, paint,scrubbed in corners, new mats etc. A lot of monthly subscription, OK for brief stay.


Thank you for sharing your experience. Our restroom renovation is a major project and has unfortunately taken longer than we anticipated. It is still a priority and will be completed soon. Thanks again.

Convenient, clean, level site.
Dec 16, 2016
Stayed for 3 nights. Campground is pleasant enough, but sites are quite small for big rigs (difficult to get into and somewhat cramped). Close to highway so there is a fair amount of noise.

We have stayed here twice now. Friendly staff,very helpful. Clean campground. Wifi OK.
Nov 30, 2016
We were quoted a rate that was not honored, our space was immediately next to the highway, wifi didn't work, dirty, depressing and the opposite of a wilderness experience. Walmart parking lot would have been better.
Nov 29, 2016
Peaceful, quiet, very comfortable. Enjoyed our complete stay

Helpful and courteous staff.

Sites are too small for long rigs. Sites are too narrow for all size campers.

Thanks for another great stay.

Pool was unavailable and there was only one shower. But cool game room.
Nov 21, 2016
Super friendly staff. All pavement campsite, not much for the kids to do, or room to play. Appears to have some permanent campers there. It has a trailer park feel
Nov 19, 2016
It's very noisy from the traffic on 101. Won't stay there again. People very nice and space roomy. Sorry couldn't take the Hiway noise.
Nov 15, 2016
We stayed here for three night. You are right on top of your neighbor and the freeway noise is quite loud. The WiFi is horrible with that said,we would recommend this KOA as a base camp.You are close to Santa Cruz and Monterey and lots of shopping.Again not a cozy hang around the camp fire kinda site.
Nov 14, 2016
I really like how convenient and close to Monterey this KOA is.
Nov 14, 2016
Pool was not working the entire stay. Hill side location was hard to maneuver large RV. Nice manager and staff. Site was large and paved. Only complaint was that the guest was older, for senior citizens.

Extremely friendly staff and thank you again - we are the ones who mistakenly booked with you one night a week later when we were going to stay at another KOA on our way home.

The staff was very friendly. The dog walk was great. In general it was very clean. Location is very close to 101 so it is noisy. We did not use the showers by the office because they weren't clean. The pull through we were in was very close to the next one. The RVs were in opposite directions but they were very close with no privacy barrier. ..
Oct 17, 2016
A convenient location. Clean. The staff was friendly and helpful.
Oct 16, 2016
Road noise can be an issue but not a big deal. Always clean and a good staff. Location is great for me. I will be back

The facility was very nice. We played some ping pong, did some laundry, and stayed for two days. Very friendly and accommodating.
Oct 11, 2016
Poor bathrooms and showers. The WIFI was terrible. Pool was out of order so didn't have a chance to use it with temperatures very high. Office personnel were very accommodating during our stay.
Oct 10, 2016
Everything was good for a stop over place, if you don't mind continuous highway noise and poor wifi.
Oct 10, 2016
Very noisy next to freeway

There are too many sites for the facility. You are truly out in the north 40 if you are in the slots 112 and up. The laundry room's washers and dryers need work and cleaning. The bathrooms are not cleaned daily. Otherwise, the staff are friendly and helpful.
Oct 03, 2016
Spaces are tight for anything 32' or longer. Highway 101 very noisy all night. Can be at ocean beaches in twenty minutes.
Oct 02, 2016
The staff and the site are very nice. The 'new' cable worked intermittently at best. The internet was barely above snail speed. The location is convenient to Salinas and Monterey.

Hospitable welcome with free cookie. Nice campground, but unfrtunately next to the highway
Sep 28, 2016
Was a nice park. Had a like trouble with the cable TV but once it was rebooted it worked great. Very friendly people in the office. Would defiantly stay there again.

I especially like the pool area! All your hard work paid off,it looks GREAT!!

Everything was amazing, including price, clean and comfortable
Sep 21, 2016
Very Noisy Park - staff unfriendly. The noise not the fault of the park but I will not stay here again
Sep 20, 2016
Stayed for our second visit and all was great as usual. Happened to hit the free day and the pancake breakfast was awesome! Thanks for another great time.
Sep 20, 2016
Nice campground. Staff very friendly and happy to answer any questions we had. We would definitely stay again.
Sep 20, 2016
Clean,comfortable, and quiet. Friendly staff, even got us in a day earlier than planned. Thanks for a nice long weekend and thanks for recommendation to eat at the local restaurant across the 101
