We enjoyed our stay at the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay KOA. It's clean, friendly staff and great location. It's central to the Monterey Bay Area. The kids loved the playground, jumpy pillow, miniature golf and pool. We'll definitely be back!

Such an awesome site...as far as camping goes...it is expensive, but they offer so many fun things to do for the kids that it makes up for the extra expense. This campsite is run by an amazing group of people that make things even better. Of course the Halloween weekend activities are AMAZING!! We will be back year after year :).

We have been going to this KOA for almost 10 years now. The staff is always so friendly. The customer service is fantastic!

We've camped at this KOA for over 20 years and it keeps getting better and better. The bathrooms are kept clean and tiday. The whole park is always clean and well kept. The staff is phenomenal and very friendly. We are always recommending this park to all of our friends! Everyone who stays here falls in love!

We had a major issue in our cabin No.78 - there was only enough hot water for one shower each night. We reported the problem to the office, a repairman came, he said it was fixed, but we were still limited to one shower for our party of four. Two kids took cold showers. We did not have this problem last year with 5-occupants in the cabin. I am very disappointed with the response we received.

Our stay was good after we complained that the first site we had was too small, and not level. We were moved to another much better site, and we were quite happy there. The sites are close together, so you have to hope your neighbour is good. You should enforce the dogs on leash policy better.

Halloween weekend is always a blast. Staff is always friendly, fun and helpful. We were disappointed the Haunted House closed down early. It was supposed to be open until 9:30 p.m. but several of us went down at 9:10 because there was such a long line earlier, but it was closed. So get there early!

the cabin was comfortable and close to the restrooms. This KOA is in a great location to explore the area.

We enjoyed our stay so much that we made a reservation for next year before we left. Can't wait for our next trip to KOA Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay.

We only stayed one on our way down the coast so didn't see much of the Kampground but were very impressed with our cabin and friendly staff. Thank you.

KOA santa cruz is a fun place and nice staff. The only change I would request is the registration system. For such a special halloween weekend, it should NOT be so painful to register nor inconsistent. We've been going for the last 9 years... would like to continue. Please improve the registration process and open it up at the beginning of the year like you did in previous years. THANKS

Always great been coming for last 5 years its awesome. Kids and families love it. We are disappointed as others about the booking for the next year until we get there, for the regulars who have been returning year after year we should be able to book on-line during the year. Many others upset about this.
Oct 22, 2013
Love this KOA and have been coming for the Halloween Camping now for 8 years with my cousins who have going for 10+ years. Always a good time and the kids have made friends that they see each year. Already looking forward to 2014 weekend!

We loved our stay. Only recommendation is to separate the pumpkin carving contest into categories like it was the last few years. The kids like to decorate and there is a small chance they will ever win with adults in the same category as them. Have a young kid 0-6 years and 7-12 and one 13 and up.

We absolutely love this KOA and their staff. Everyone is friendly and each year they make improvements that further enhance the experience.

Paul is amazing

As always we had a blast. I would however say that the. Poking process for next year was Terrible. So much stress and inconvenience as compared to previous years. I prefer to call ahead of time and not spend my valuable vacation time standing in the cold at the crack of dawn. Would like to see a change back to the way it was prior. Thanks so much

I recently stayed on October 18-20 for the Halloween weekend fun. I really like staying with you guys but I have to say I was really disappointed that there was so much alcohol consumption around children. At every decorated cabin it seemed like there was an alcohol station along with the trick or treating. I felt that was inappropriate. Also someone was throwing up behind my camper.

Holloween would not be the same.The staff is always there to help and the great family atmosphere is what keeps us coming back KOA. Cudos, good job. Christie and Ernie Hall...Monterey
