Tent Reviews

The experience was very complete. If anything was forgotten, the store was well stocked to fill in the gaps. It was a bit expensive, tho.... Other than that, we had a great time.

The premise was gorgeous, the staff was gracious, and the neighbors were respectful.

This is a beautiful site with several spa-like amenities adding to the already relaxing and serene environment.

The KOA location we stayed at didn't have a store. Well, it did.. But it was mostly a souvenir shop. Being so far away from a store was difficult when we needed something we had forgotten. Also, the tent area had only two bbq pits and one group moved a table from the middle and used it for a campfire.

It was a very clean campground. Hiking trails right there. Trail to the beach is a little long probably 3/4 of a mile, but it's a nice walk. Very cool place.

We only stayed one night but I wish our trip allowed for longer. Beautiful campground, close to the ocean, clean facilities, well organized.

Tent camped in the meadows which was wet but the warm weather made it tolerable.It had just rained the weekend before so understandable. Quick easy check in, super nice restrooms. Driving distance to some of our favorite beaches. playground equipment needs some maintenance, due to quick corrosion (likely from proximity to ocean). Quiet,beautiful and peaceful.

My wife and I rode our recumbent trikes down Hwy 1 and stopped here for a night of tent camping. When we rode in to the KOA she said are you sure we are at the right place this looks really fancy. We really enjoyed our stay and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We already told our kids this would be a great place for a weekend getaway.

The general site was great. The facilities were very good. The restaurant was excellent. The tent camping area was very basic - a large "free-for-all" grass area with a few picnic tables tossed in. Luckily there weren't a lot of other campers because it could get very noisy and crowded in that area. No local water - you had to go down to the rest room facility. Staff were very friendly and helpfu

The girls and I loved the campground. The amenities were amazing and the staff was very personable. I felt very safe with 3 teenage girls and will definitely return again!

This is a beautiful location with friendly staff. Very well kept. My favorite place to camp. Extremely short hike to the beach.

I called to reserve a bungalow & they said none were available so then I asked if there were any tent sites. The lady said they were all booked up & even the tent sites were booked. Later I checked the web site & was able to book a tent site. While staying there I noticed a whole bunch of empty bungalows and only one tent there. I don't know why the lady lied to me. Company could have made more$

Great for families, with just about every possible convenience onsite. Two suggestions for improvement: 1) Better signage where to park in the Lighthouse tent area, and 2) Store needs to open at the published hours; if not possible a note should be posted at the door with the 'real' open time.

Costanoa KOA is fantastic - friendly staff and you camp surrounded by eucalyptus groves and the ocean. We even heard the waves crashing from our campsite.

Really enjoyed my time there at Costanoa. What an amazing facility in an amazing place. I did however overpay by $10 and was told I could get my change, but the next day I couldn't get to the kiosk to get my refund before they closed. I'm hoping they are good on their word and send me the $10

Wonderful hikes,comfort station, with fireplace and saunas,and friendly workers to greet you when you arrive. Campsite amazing! Very clean, with water sink area, trees for shade and picnic tables.Awesome place!

We were in the "bikepackers/hikers" section, & they had two trucks of tree landscapers begin working/shredding at 7:45am only 50 feet away from us. That is unacceptable.

This was easily the nicest campground that we stayed at during our last tour in California. That said, $40 per night is rather steep.

Extremely helpful and friendly staff at Reservation kiosk. I went with a group of friends who all booked online. The calendar showed that the tent cabins were completely booked, and so we all brought own tents and reserved space in the meadow. We then learned upon our arrival that the website calendar does not display correct information and we could have stayed in the tent cabins after all.

Very impressed with campsite overall: one of nicest I've ever been to. Lots of options ranging from basic camping to resort style stuff. I will be coming back. Oh, and the local brewery is awesome too!

We had a wonderful time at costanoa. We were joined by friends who came because of our love for Costanoa. the only problem I saw was that the campers clean up using the sinks and both comfort stations near us had standing water due to people washing garbage down the sinks. The restroom shower at the end of Eucalyptus camp area needs repair. Everything else was great. We are planning to return.

unfortunately, we were next to a loud group of teenagers who did not observe quiet hours. Even with earplugs they were quite loud. Hopefully, there will be more reinforcement next time.

This was a fun and lively campsite. We stayed there on a Saturday evening and they had a live band playing and a barbeque station with burgers etc for sale. The bathrooms were clean. It's just a short walk to the beach. The only complaint I had is that the tent campsites were very close to each other so there is not much privacy.

Beautiful grounds but, if you are a tent camper, don't bother. We were thrown out back in "the Meadows",their term for an open field. Worse, they don't enforce quiet time rules and allow drunken behavior until 3am keeping us awake all night. Poor excuse of new staff the next day. No thanks.
Sep 22, 2014
Spectacular place. We will go back again next year for sure.
