Very well maintained. Lack of places to have a fire and pricey food brought it from a 5 to a 3. All workers very nice and helpful.

Always have and always will love this KOA. It is a beautiful campground, clean, staff is friendly. Don't really have a bad thing to say about it. Would highly recomend it!

Our experience was very positive. We had great campsites though, if it were during a crowded time of year, the sites are a little too close together. Our only complaint is that some people do not clean up after their dogs and we had to watch our step. If you know what I mean!!

This time of year, we almost had the tent camping area to ourselves, but there were plenty of RVs. The comfort stations were really nice: heated floors, hot showers, and hot dry sauna, all included in camping fee. Clean, we'll kept everywhere. Loved it. I'll be back. Next time I'll plan to stay more days.

What great amenities and service! Everyone (especially security guard Nick) was SO nice and helpful. We loved the live blue grass and dry sauna. Thanks!

Beautiful views of ocean. Wonderful ridge trail with chairs at top to sit and overlook ocean. Super nice bathrooms. Clean. Friendly employees. The only thing I didn't like was how close together the sites were. If you are looking for seclusion and privacy this is not the place. But over all, nice place and amazing area to explore.

Beautiful grounds and setting. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean, well stocked comfort stations. Delicious food and family friendly too. Loved the sauna and fire pits.

I enjoyed the campsite very much, but I thought it might be nice to know that the beach nearby was dog unfriendly ahead of time. Though they did provide a list of beaches that I could take them to. All the people were very great. The camp grounds were very clean. I enjoyed my stay very much.

I have a KOA guidebook and I picked this campground out of it. It is the nicest KOA I've ever stayed in...and I've stayed in quite a few.

Kids playing loudly and amplified music could be heard until around 10p, despite posted campground policy of 7p quiet hours. $35/night for camping in a meadow seems a bit high especially considering lack of enforcement of quiet policy. Hot showers a nice plus. Walk to beach was a bit far for our 3 y/o kiddo but beautiful area.

I love all of the KOA campsites, the only thing I didn't like was the inability to have a fire in normal camp sites.

The campsite and location is great. Clean and stocked bathrooms.

We would like to go back again! Everything is clean and taken care of well by a site manager.

Very nice location, easy to get to from the Bay Area. Grounds were nice & the bathrooms were clean & well stocked. Tent sites are VERY narrow, which was a little frustrating. Our tent was literally an arm's length from our neighbor's fire circle (we moved the tent to a better location). Next time, we'll try to get an end site so we have a bit more room. Otherwise, very happy about our stay!

Wonderful staff. TERRIBLE noise problem. Music playing into the night. RV generators going on.
Oct 14, 2013
Great facility, but the camping section severely over crammed. Not as-in too many people but as-in they fit three spots into what would normally be one spot. You're are literally in your neighbors business. We won't camp here again but the tents and cabins look like a possibility.
Oct 14, 2013
We will Return.

This is a good camp ground for 1st time campers and families with kids. Camp areas are too close to one another to the point that you can hear all conversations your neighbors are having. If you don't have children in your group you'll feel like you do as you hear every tantrum and will wake up when the kids wake up due to zero sound separation. Go mid week while kids are in school only.

Staff is confused and seems inconvenienced when asked for help

tent site #14 is an all dirt parking strip. no table, no platform. due to neighbor's firepit and table and their platforms there was no place to set up a tent. It is that close. I asked for a refund and left.

The campground was clean and well maintained. I would have liked to have seen more traditional KOA amenities and more shower stalls.

This is our second year staying at Costanoa. We love it there. The pancake breakfast is an awesome way to start the day after a restful night in the tents. Can't wait to go again next year.

It was really awesome with beautiful scenery. Only downside is the general store is very limited and the playground doesn't compare to other koa's I've been to. Otherwise it's a really great place that I'll go to again.

Beautiful environment but tooooooo crowded.... Absolutely no privacy. The tent sites were on top of each other and poorly situated. Restaurant was fabulous. Bathrooms were cleaned or stocked poorly. Only one shower at the comfort station shared by so many. This place is great for groups. Convenient for beach and hiking/biking on the coast.

Facilities were generally very clean. We stayed in a deluxe campsite. A little crowded spacing bi generally we were there as proximity to local attractions so this didn't matter as much. Lots of options for those not into roughing it. Had we known about food options we would have planned our meals differently.
Sep 30, 2013
Great place to camp with the whole family! I wish all the sites have a firepit!

The tent sites are too close together such that if they were all full it would be unpleasant. It was not at all full when we were there so it was ok. I think the wooden platforms are for the tents but that wasn't clear and they take up a lot of space. The trees and shade is wonderful and the view of the water is great. The comfort station is getting old and shabby looking.

Simple, basic in a great location. All amenities at hand. Wonderful vision.

Everything was wonderful. People were nice. It was luxury camping. I only wish that I could of had an option to have a camp fire at my tent location.

Very nice campground near the San Mateo County Coast. Comfort stations were clean and had lots of hot water. Trails to the beach. Wished the fog bank hadn't come in, but that's the Calif. coast for you.

Clean, wonderful location.
Sep 09, 2013
fantastic. thank you. we'll be back.

While Coastnoa is lovely the campground is like camping on a parking lot with super small lots and RVS everywhere with RV noise and motors all night. I wish they paid the same attention to the campground as other amenities at this great location.
