Tent Reviews

Aug 30, 2014
We were tent camping and this place is not a great place for that. The sites are down on the far end where the wind will get you. Lawn in poor shape. Plus we like to have our jeep close by and this is a fenced in area. Plus restaurant is expensive and my breakfast was dead cold.

Beautiful setting for tent camping. I could hear the ocean breaking gently through the night (if I listened closely). Comfort stations were beautifully tiled and clean, but only one shower for women (and one for men) in a tent area that can hold up to 15 or 16 tents, as well as up to 30 RVs. No fire rings in tent area but fireplace in comfort station area with space for 5 to sit. Quiet.

The woman at the registration booth was so nice and accomodating. The perfect way to start a great weekend!

The site was clean, not noisy, we did smell the stables from time to time (Eucalyptus grove). The bathrooms were clean, only surprise was one shower staff per comfort station. Overall a good stay if you don't like roughing it too much.

People were very nice, and it was great for what it is (coastal and remote from busy cities), but to be honest we're more of high mountains campers/backpackers...

I loved the feeling of safety. As mother I am always concern about it specially when is only me and my 8 year old son. Me and my son we have our very first camping experience. It was awesome, I fall sleep with the sound of the ocean, and my son didn't want to leave, he said he wanted to stay and there!! :) we are definitely coming back! !

I loved almost everything. The problem was the noise. Quiet hours are 10 pm to 7 am. I have small children who go to bed at 8 - 9 at the latest. When camping, for small kids bed time is when it gets dark but it was unbelievably loud and then in the morning some one yelled at my kids at 7:45 and said that quiet hours were until 9. That was the only problem.

Not a fan of wind, but that's a coastal risk you take. A couple of the showers were broken, but it was very busy & possibly some rough handed ness. Comfort stations as a whole, very nice to have & plenty to choose from. Great staff.

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.

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.

THE COUPLE THAT GREETED US/CHECKED US IN WERE SOOOOOOO VERY NICE!! THAT IS ALWAYS THE BEST START TO ANY VACATION!! THANK YOU!

Great place! Perfect for us, who needed extra amenities on our first camping trip with little ones. I can see if you are seeking solitude this is NOT the place though. Overall, what we expected and loved it!

Tent Camping in the Meadow area seems like a bit of an afterthought. Getting water is a bit of a hike and it's not clear at the outset where exactly one should go. Beyond that and the hike to the comfort stations, the staff was great and did their best to cope with the near full park over the week-end. All in all, a very good place to stay close to the coast.

very nice location, short walk to the ocean. Hot showers, quiet except for the yipping dogs tethered to motorhomes, Store not much. There is a tricky "conservation fee" a way to tack an extra $5 on each nights stay, which is annoying. Just charge what is fair and avoid the "fees"

This was our first camping trip with tents... I can say all 17 of us had the best time ever. Easy, affordable, and FUN!!!

Site is in incredible location and with great options, tent camping, RVs, lodge, cabins. Trails from campground and Ano Nuevo state park so close by. Staff super accommodating and nice! only comment is that showerhead in women's bathroom was falling apart- otherwise nice clean bathrooms. I would definitely return
Jul 10, 2014
bummer no pool. an animal knocked over trash can at bathroom & left a big mess at entrance. The shower head in bathroom was broken, it was very difficult to take a shower with just a hose. I still had fun and will return, thank you.

It's lovely, but could use a bit more vegetation to provide privacy at the sites. I think they are working on it. Gorgeous area!

We had an amazing time at Costanoa Koa. We camped, and although it was a little cold, we still enjoyed our stay. We hiked to the beach which was GORGEOUS. We also went down to Ano Nuevo Park and saw the elephant seals. It was a long hike esp for little children, but the views are heaven. We will be making this our new annual family trip! Next time around we will stay in the cabins!

The staff is kind, the restrooms very clean and the landscape awesome.

We just love Costanoa!!! Wonderful folks run the campground and it is very family friendly. Great trails and easy camping.
