Campsite in a small grass area Shared with 10 other families. Lovely vegetable and flower gardens across from the grass area. Had to move to another location to cook as this area has direct access to ocean winds. Many trucks drove by in the morning due to construction?

We were disappointed to learn the hot tub was only available for some guests. That should be clear in the description on the website.

This place is Awesome! We loved the tent site, staff was extremely friendly, everything was clean and just beautiful. The comfort stations and fire pits were a bit of luxury for camping. kitchen and electricity was heaven to have at the tent site! KOA Santa Cruz North is by far the best site to tent camp!

The tent area needs 1 or 2 communal firepits

We missed having a fire near out tent campground. I understand the risk with eucalyptus trees, but there is room in the center of the tent area away from trees. If you added this, we'd camp here again.

We hated our stay. I am pretty surecwecwerectikd we could have a fire so we packed a ton of wood, foods to be grilled and marshmallows. Turns out no fires in tent camping area so we had to lug all our stuff to the picnic area. Someone should have told us. Tent camping is a small fenced in lawn where people pitch their tents. What a joke that's not camping.


You certainly could have cooked your food- we have two BBq grills there as well as sink and electric outlet. There are just no open fires but we do provide wood and start a fire for you at the comfort station.

While this KOA was close to Fremont we did not like it much... much of our disliking can be attributed to we not being informed that tent sites do not have campfire pit and all the picnic areas were booked thereby leaving no option for us to do a campfire. The store does not cater for all the necessities like propane gas.Overall not a good one to camp.

No phone service while out there :(


very sorry - Yes cell service is awful.

Good and cheerful atmosphere. Second time I stayed at this location will come back again.

Amazing location, friendly staff, and an all around great park.

The only thing that was enjoyable was the comfort station. Cost was outrages for acomadations. I camped here many years ago and was not put in the dog park.


Very sorry! Yes the cell service is aweful.

The stay was great. The comfort stations were clean and comfortable and I appreciated the evening fireplace fire. Th price was a bit high.

Family camping to the right of us was too loud..... Guys to the left of us set up their camping gear/tent in our camp site/location. Nice clean bathroom and showers. Love the community fireplace. Close to beach :) sucks there is no cell service/connection throughout area

Tent sites were wonderful for families with kids. Facilities were clean and had many thoughtful touches. Staff were very friendly and very helpful.

It would have been better if the wifi signal was stronger. It was too spotty I could never get it to work.

Great location though a bit crowded. Everything was nice. Few showers.


Thanks for your nice review, just want to clarify, we have many showers here - 6 comfort stations and some with several private outside showers as well as inside showers. Guests can utilize any they wish through out the park.

I loved everything about this stay. Great options for whichever level of "roughing it" is your thing. Absolutely loved the sauna on those cold seaside nights.

Tent area had no hot water at the sink. There were also no firepits allowed at the tents. On cold evenings this made it uncomfortable. BBQ pits were away from the tents. It would have been better to have one at each tent so you don't have to carry everything across the campsite. None of this was clear on the website. Had we have known this we probably wouldn't have booked.

I wished i could of have a fire

Facilities were clean and reasonable. It was disappointing to not be able to have dogs or fires when tent camping since they are allowed everywhere else. Extremely cold where the tent sites are (10 degrees colder than elsewhere in the KOA).


Please keep in mind you are camping amongst the eucalyptus trees ( highly flammable) there are many critters and it isn't safe to have pets in tents. Your safety is our main concern.

Beautiful campground! About a 20-30 minute walk from the campsite to the beach. It was a little windy, but I don't know if that is typical for that area. They don't allow fires at the campsite, but there are comfort areas which have the bathrooms, showers, dry sauna, and fireplace. Very peaceful and relaxing. They also have a playground for the kids.

Decent KOA. Expensive due to the location.

Very expensive. Rude employees in the morning when I checked out. Service is deplorable. If you are going to try to have a Glamping KOA with "better" services then the standard KOA, the employees should reflect it.
