Gorgeous location with a wide variety of activities.

The location was fantastic!! Some of the staff members were awesome, and others were much less helpful. The skunks were an issue. Quiet time rules were not enforced.

One of our favorite places to stay! Nice clean bathrooms and a great view of the ocean :)

Our third time and we will be back for many more. We LOVE the location, the weather, the people and the grounds! The only thing we hate is leaving!

We loved our stay here. It is quiet and very beautiful. The staff is very friendly.

The setting is beautiful and coo,l perched above the Pacific. It would be impossible to find this Kampground if I didn't have a Garmin, due to the lateness of my arrival. The Wi-Fi is inadequate. They need to invest in upgrading. The shower had plentiful, hot water (with drought warnings posted), but is need of updating. My site was so un-level, it was uncomfortable.

No cell phone service at all and the internet is basically non- existent. There is a $5 conservation fee added to your site fee. Awesome views of the ocean, and the staff is friendly. The food at the restaurant is extremely overpriced and mediocre at best. We would not stay there again.

Great location, good amenities but very little personality at this KOA. Almost seems to be a side business. Need more showers and they need to be cleaned more regularly.

This was our first time with KOA. The campsite was overall nice, however our experience was not so good. Campers around us was not "kid" friendly - we were stuck in between RV's and we were in a tent. Our campsite location was not the best for a tent, when asked if there was other locations, tent city wasn't even better... I would however try other KOA locations, just not this one.

Have stayed here several times, seems the upkeep is declining. Grounds need work, bathrooms are just ok, cost of camping increased over $20/day in one year.

I used to really like this campground but the last few years it has gone downhill. No security at night to quiet campers down when the party gets to loud after hours. No inforcing rules like parking on grass, picking up after their dog

Everything anyone could possibly do to make our stay great was done! Super nice people, clean facilities, and superb location! No cell service and iffy Wi-Fi but that was to be expected in a remote coastal campground. We love this place and we will be back!

Campsites were pretty close in the loop we were in. Campsites were easy to back in- nice turn around loop

We had a great time at the Santa Cruz North KOA. We tent camped and our children enjoyed the grassy tent area. We also liked the proximity to the tide pools and the views of the ocean and the lighthouse.

This was our first visit to Costanoa and it was just what we were looking for. The hiking trails were great. We hiked up to the Ohlone Ridge Lookout, which gave us a good workout. We took our bikes and were able to,take a good ride. The nearby beaches were wonderful. We will definitely return again, and for a,longer stay next time.

it was awesome,my wife and i have a hard time relaxing when we are home and this was the place that put us at rest,thank you for for providing it

Everywhere in the Santa Cruz area was completely booked. We got lucky and found Costanoa. Nice, uncrowded beaches in both directions of the camp. The sites were clean and rates included showers and hookups. Just beware of the skunks and raccoons. They are not afraid of people.

Great location, beach access, bike and hike trails, family really enjoyed the stay . We will definitely be back for more.

Very quiet, love to hear the ocean, close to a great beach to take our dogs, but VERY expensive to stay there, So half of my friends would never spend that kind of money on a camping place.
Jul 24, 2014
I enjoyed the experience. Everyone was friendly and it was clean. I will definitely be considering it a place to stay the next time in the area.

Only issue I had was the cable. I didn't work and the campground did nothing to fix it. Other than that great place to stay. Close to San mateo, Santa Cruz and Half Moon Bay.

We were not warned about the raccoon problem and skunk problem. Our family lost a lot of food to them. We should have been warned verbally or with a handout. Someone said it was posted. We were there a week and did not see any posting!!

This is a lovely campground. It was well maintained and very clean. All the personnel were friendly and helpful. The site is beautiful, and there is lots to do within the campground and many trails to explore. A close walk to several beaches. We definitely plan to go come back to this campground.
