Campground Reviews

Aug 11, 2014
We had a good time. We are coming back on the 12th of Sept. We really like the upgrades you have made to the sites. Thank you for making our weekend great.

Had a very relaxing week at your KOA. Before departing, our group reserved a week for August 2015.

Having booked already in winter this year and after asking for a certain area, I'd expected that you guys don't give us any other stall without notice/comment. That's not the service we'd expected. And: Your WiFi is crap! I'd rather pay for it and get one that works.

Great family campground. Will definitely be back!

We enjoyed our stay. It was my preschooler's first time camping. My only comments would be that someone should supervise the bounce area. Some of the older kids were very rough. One even jumped over my daughter. We were in cabin 153 and had full view of the intersection with the stop signs. I'm surprised no one got hurt. Maybe the ones coming up the hill should have the right of way?

Fabulous location, fun amenities, good sites. Unfortunately, it's not much less than a hotel. An inland hotel would be less expensive.

A perfect family retreat!! We no longer have little ones, but can't wait for grandbabies - what a wonderful place to bring the kids!!

Great for kids lot's for them to do. Wish there were more trees but overall a great place.

Run like a hotel not campground but still fun for kids. Stayed in 1 room cabin needs some updating for the price we paid. Clean facilities great location.

Great place for the family. The six grand kids had a great time. We were there for four nites and the wifi did not work til the last day. My wife needs wifi so she can work away from home. This is the only negative for this KOA. Great staff.

The staff at the Santa Cruz KOA was so friendly and great with our children. Duke was especially helpful several days in a row. It was the cleanest campground I've ever visited. Everyone had a great time. Thank you!

Cabin was clean and perfect for two adults and two kids. Entire park was cleaned and trash picked up several times a day. Pool, mini golf, bikes etc were a blast. But the biggest standout was the staff...always courteous and ready to help and so good with the kids...Thank You!

Loved the place. I only wish there was more supervision at the jumping pillow. Most kids are there without their parents and it can get a little rough at times.

It was 9 years since the last time we came to this KOA. I don't know what took us so long but we will be back again next year. This place is so clean, the staff is all so friendly and the jump pillow is amazing! This truly is a family campground. My only request is they NEED to carry ice-cream cones for the wonderful variety of ice-cream they carry in their store.

We had a great stay.

Love all the things for kids to do! Is was like a kid amusement park :) Also love the curbside trash pickup and coffee in the store. What luxuries! Felt like a resort, especially after 5 days in Yosemite.

It was our first time at this KOA. The kids had a blast! Not only that it is a kid friendly campground but it is also relaxing for adults. Our family had so much fun we're planning our next adventure for next year already!

Very large campground and close to a local beach. We went and watched the sunset over the water. Beautiful! Bathrooms were clean and staff very efficient.

We enjoyed our stay at the Santa Cruz KOA. The staff was friendly when we checked in & helpful getting us into our RV spot. There was a lot of things for kids to do & the facilities were clean.

Very peaceful family campground... all the kids must bounce on the huge bounce pillow and wear themselves out. Private sites, quick trash pick up, and hot showers, quick ice and firewood delivery. We will be back!

It was our last night in the US before delivering our RV back to the rental company. Therefore we had less time to discover the campsite and facilities. We had good impressions. Easy finding, good directions. Nevertheless the pricing level of the campsite is very high.

Poor, small sites. Was not told no firepit. No room for SUV. Staff took our table, miving our stuff, while gone. Daughter broke leg on your bounce toy. Asked staff if doctor on site to help, told us leg prob not that bad n to drive to town to find medical care (at 8pm on Thrs night). Not help or direction where to locate physician.

this koa has great facilities and mostly helpful staff. The downside for us was that we seemed to be on an rv site and the ground was way to hard to get our tent pegs in!

This was one of the most nicely equipped KOA's we've stayed at.

It's all Good!

This was our first KOA experience, and my family is impressed. The staff was friendly, the sites and restrooms were clean, and the areas for the kids to play were amazing!

lovely for children, with a little train, playground etc

Staff very friendly, our site was large and plenty of room so we did not feel right on top of other campers. We stayed for the Garlic Fest and location was close to every thing we wanted to see and do, Monterey, Carmel, Beaches.

Such a great place for a family with young kids. Only downfall was that the campfire and movie nights are only on Fri & Sat's and we camped Sun-Thurs.
Aug 05, 2014

Me amd my family had a great time at the campground great amenities and very clean
Aug 05, 2014
No 30 amp power which would be expected at the price we paid. Too much hounding to purchase membership card. Too many people!
Aug 05, 2014
Control the persons limit in the hot spa. It was over loaded most of the time. And maybe not allow children under 12. Everything else was great!
