Campground Reviews

Nov 19, 2013
Perfect first time place for us with our new camper.
Nov 19, 2013
one of the best campgrounds I have been to. very clean and wide camp sites. half way between Santa Cruz and San Francisco and lots of beaches along a beautiful stretch of high way one.

It was a great camping experience. The campground was very well maintained. Heated bathrooms and shower areas. The staff was very helpful. Overall a very nice camping experience.

we loved it so much and it was our first visit that we called our family and booked new years..Hotel and RV sites. Your camp hosts are doing a lovely job! Bravo

We come here several times a year. We love the location and the amenities. Great check-in. The restaurant was great for service and food quality.

A little dissapointed that we had to rent a fire pit, as we have stayed at other KOAs and never have been charged. Limited WiFi in certain areas and the cable reception was marginal. Great ocean view!

Great location, beautiful views and very friendly staff. The weather was amazing for November so the walk to & on the beach was beautiful. Kids made some friends and played soccer & football on the lawn. Overall we had a great weekend there and already have another weekend booked.

The only thing I would complain about is that you have let the grass in the campground area die.

I enjoyed the campsite very much, but I thought it might be nice to know that the beach nearby was dog unfriendly ahead of time. Though they did provide a list of beaches that I could take them to. All the people were very great. The camp grounds were very clean. I enjoyed my stay very much.

Had a great time! Everyone was very nice. Helped to have nice weather in November! Will be back!

We are returning Kampers. We love this KOA. Unfortunately we had our first negative experience. We were disappointed at the limited space available at the pull through sites. We had previously had sites with a lovely greenbelt on our two other trips. This trip we brought our 100 pound dog along and were relegated to a one and a half foot gravel/bark walkway. No more pull throughs for us

Small RV sites and no fire rings (you have to rent them $$) Clean and great spot though

Beautiful location, clean campsites and restrooms. Friendly staff and the restaurant was excellent. Most important to me was the handicap accessability to facilities.

Excellent location and very well maintained!

The campground was very nice and the bathroom/comfort stations were pristine. The restaurant was poor; it was a full hour wait for a pancake breakfast and everyone was complaining about staffing problem.

Showers were not clean and needed maintenance. Water temperature luke warm. Lights not working, paint chipped around sinks, ground path lighting not working.

The sites were small and uneven. When my friend stepped out of our trailer he twisted his ankle. Wifi was week and phone reception was bad. However the people who work there are fantastic. I may have just been on the worst site.
Nov 05, 2013
Great clean facilities, tons of activities, safe for the kids, and a great place to introduce family and friends to camping

I have a KOA guidebook and I picked this campground out of it. It is the nicest KOA I've ever stayed in...and I've stayed in quite a few.

Dog on leash rule was not enforced the entire weekend 6 large dogs terrorized kids & ran loose in the pull-thru area.

strong smell of horse urine from the stables throughout the RV areas. campsite was very dirty from previouse campers. a lot of trash with chicken and rib bones scattered on the ground. the previouse campers had dumped several nights of BBQ ashes onto the ground around the picnic table. I ended up filling a trash bag with all the trash in the campsite.

The KOA was great, the sites were premium. The only downside was the kid's playground was a disappointment. We have 2 small kids and a nice playground would be ideal. everything else was great.

Shower in Ladies restroom poorly designed. Water did not drain properly and water ran out into floor of entire restroom and there was only one shower for a very large camping area.

great camp ground, facility and location; but pricey.

Very clean and quiet campground. Friendly & very helpful staff. We'll come back for sure!

Very pricy and No cell service, does have internet and offers available phone in lodge but we were too far for my husband to walk with cane. Cable was snowy they tried to get better reception and than left without being fixed

The staff was very friendly. The grounds were beautiful and decorated festively with pumpkins everywhere (we were there right before Halloween) We had a very nice lunch at the Cascade Grill by the fire with great food and wine...couldn't be better!
Oct 29, 2013
Nice grounds and friendly staff.
Oct 29, 2013
The only one thing I didn't like is. O cellphone service for emergency. My husband was having extreme back spasms in the middle if the night and I couldn't call anyone and couldn't leave him. The next day sat. When my daughter came she went to the lodge to call the doctor for meds. I do want to add the people in the office were so wonderful and helpful to us, I appreciated. Thank U 4 the help

Campground was nice and clean but I think $10 for a pile of wood is too much and would think kids activities would be included in the high price of the stay. The little park, of one swing, needs a huge update as well. There was a grumpy not so nice man working at the campground registration.
Oct 29, 2013
Second stay here this year. Great location on the coast, friendly staff, everything kept very clean.
Oct 29, 2013
Just a stopover on the way home, was very nice, but not in the area we would prefer to stay in, also very prices compared to state campground
Oct 27, 2013
The campsites are close together, but still comfortable and roomy enough (and we have a 32' trailer with two slide outs). The facilities are beautiful and very clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You can't beat the location-right across Hwy 1 from the ocean and close to Santa Cruz and many points of interest. Our only (minor) frustration was the spotty WiFi.

We love staying at this KOA park. This time we invited 2 families to join us on our trip in their Rv's. We got the spaces we reserved and all had a great time.
Oct 26, 2013
No Cell service was a Big problem, not being able to contact our kids at home didn't cut it! Also checked out sooner then expected and got charged full price for the day even though the park was nearly empty, my husband fell off his bike got hurt and we needed to go to hospital to have it checked out, yet they still charged us full price, I would like to see them use the $$ the collect for cell.

everyone very nice to my wife & i

Loved the campground and area, but was told to visit the Rec shop for hiking advice, yet it was always closed. We only learned about the hiking in the area as we were leaving even though I asked when we registered.
