This is our favorite campground!

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.

We love Costanoa but were underwhelmed by the tent camping. Tons of wind, no fire allowed at site, and, worst of all, a bright light that blinked on and off from the sink area ALL NIGHT LONG keeping us all awake for two nights. Staff was unresponsive which also disappointed us.

Awesome location, right off hwy 1. Great grass site for tents. The only negative comment was that the quiet hours were not enforced at all. We were told that quiet hours were from 10p-9a and music was playing until midnight at some campsites and right way at 7a, music was on again. Also in the early morning, their were employees working on the garden right next to the site. They were wry loud.

Lighthouse tent campground is much colder and windier than rest of resort. Campfires aren't allowed at those sites. And we had really bad allergies being near the horse stables. We used to love camping at the Eucalyptus 32 group site which is now for RVs only, but now there just aren't great tent camping options.

Very well maintained, and GREAT customer service

We can't compare this to other KOAs as we have never stayed in any others as a family. We miss camping in the Meadows, but understand the value of putting more tent cabins in that space. Given That we are now stuck with Lighthouse, which is still a good place to camp. A few comments: my wife & other campers worried about safety of sleeping under trees. Also shower fixture broken in men's bath.

I love Costanoa... have stayed at the campground and the cabins/tents. Clean restrooms!!! However I do wish there were fire pits in the camp areas.. we stayed in The Lighthouse area and would be great if there was a communal fire pit.

Hosts of the KOA extremely friendly and considerate. Helped our group avoid heavy rain during our tent-site visit. Beautiful facilities. Would come again every time I am in the Bay Area.


Thanks for your very kind review. We do our best to accommodate.

It's ok, but overpriced for what it is. Trying to be an exclusive eco lodge when it's not.
