Campground Reviews

Jan 03, 2015
We had several issues with the party staying at the campsite next to ours. After being assured by the property management that the issue would be addressed, nothing was ever done. We did not feel safe and were very disappointed in the lack of response to our concerns.

There was poor cell phone reception and the internet didn't work during our five day stay.

Our stay was wonderful! I was very impressed on all the activities you had for the kids. We couldn't get internet service while we were there. That was the only problem we had.

Kids loved the activities. The jump mound and the FREE coconut climb was fantastic and great fun. The deluxe cabin was great with outside firepit. One baseboard heater didn't work but the front desk brought out a space heater for that room. The only problem with reservations is that this KOA doesn't have enough phone lines, so phone numbers on the website didn't work day of booking & checkin.

Nice campground and everyone was helpful, however their 30 and 50 amp service needs to be looked at. (100 volts with all my elect. off. Neighbor next door lost a heater due to low voltage )

A wonderful place, especially if you have younger children. Bathrooms and showers were extremely clean. Friendly staff. Nice pool and hot tub. My only wish would to have a little more privacy in our site.

Our stay at the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay KOA was our first RV camping experience. I think we may have ruined ourselves for any other campground. The staff is amazing! We look forward to staying again.

Kids loved it and the staff was very nice and attentive, but pricey for a camping spot.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The site map was great! The bathroom/shower was very clean. How about educational/environmental signage around KOA?

Tengonet is the pits at peak hours! We had this service when we were in Tucson earlier this year and it was terrible! Other than that we loved our stay there and will probably be back another time.

The campground is nice and in good condition but we particularly did not like the nearly "outdoor" showers and non-heated restrooms in late December. Also, our space had very little gravel in a it and it was extremely muddy. (although they had a lot of rain) the water/power only sites could use a little gravel/road base to help alleviate the mud---all the other sites appeared okay.

Your deluxe cabin worked great for us.

we had a great time at the KOA! The only problem is we lost power 3 or 4 times the breaker kept popping. We were kind of upset about that but made the best of it anyway. Hopefully they can do something about that problem they were having. it disrupted our Christmas Day plans though,then the next couple of days it happen again. will make sure that I don't get those spots on the back row.

Always great. I love that they continue to upgrade the campground. Everyone is so helpful there. The water faucet at our friends spot broke. The next morning they replaced it with no issues. The only issue I have is I needed bacon one morning and I went to the office / store and a small pack of bacon was 8.99 items are overpriced but that's what happens when you forget to bring it. Great place!

We had an exceptional stay at Santa Cruz KOA! The entire facility was extremely well maintained. You can tell that the owners take great pride in this property! We cannot wait to come back and bring our grandchildren to enjoy the children's amenities!

Unfortunately we where disappointed of the service as well as the equipment in the hut. When we tried to tell the clerk it seemed as if she just doesn't care.

Stayed 3 days to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary. The park was close to Santa Cruz, Monterey and Carmel and we visited a town each day. The park is set up great for kids. Will definitely stay again.

We thought the campground was great, but had a horrible, loud disturbance at 1:05 AM the very first night. People arrived with a Fifth Wheel & large diesel truck and began setting up and banging things until 3 AM at Site 226. It woke up two of the three families in our group. Michelle at the front desk was told. Nothing was done.
