We arrived late with no reservation and Collette with security was incredibly nice and helped us find a spot to camp in. Beautiful campground!

The website says there are wooden platforms for tents. This is not true at Eucalyptus. Everything got wet and muddy. It costs twice as much as it should given how close together sites are. They are in an open area; no visual separation from each other.

It was my first time at Costanoa and it was so amazing! The staff is super friendly and we had the best tent campsite ever. Our group of 4 families raved about our stay. Thank you Costanoa!

Very happy other than the bathrooms/showers were locked the morning I was leaving for work at 6:30am my last day. The previous day they were open. This was very inconvenient as it rained both nights I was there and a warm shower to warm up before driving for nearly an hour to work, would have been great. Not sure why they wouldn't be open to paying guests... Just an fyi, Hurley was great.

This is one of our favorite camping spots. It has everything we need. Very family friendly!

Loved the comfort station, with fireplace, sauna, shower, and bathrooms. Also loved the location right near the coast. I do wish the campsites were a little more secluded--we were basically in an open field with about 9 other sites--but otherwise it was an amazing experience.

Loved the view, the walk, the facilities. We arrived around 4am and the campgrounds had a person ready and waiting to direct and greet us. I would live there if I could!

Better when tent platforms were available -- lots of those slots sitting empty while tents in the grassy field.

This KOA is amazing! We tented the first night & then upgraded to Cypress village which are mini house tents with beds, heated blanket, etc. No bathroom but their bathrooms have been clean and not busy. Tons of amenities, great restaurant, biking, hiking, close to the ocean. Couldn't ask for a better KOA.

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

Awesome location, quite, family friendly and close to the beach.

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.
Jul 20, 2016
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
