Campground Reviews

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!

hated the 15.00 charge for dog in cabin, rental rate is already excessive

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.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this KOA over Thanksgiving and had the best time! Customer Service was EXCELLENT! Campground was very clean and the cabin we stayed in was cozy. I have stayed at several campgrounds before and this is by far one of the best! I will be visiting again :)

We spent Thanksgiving weekend, rented 3 sleep cabins. 5 kids and 6 adults this is the perfect place there is so much to do in the campground and in the area... Weather was perfect.

Staff very helpfull & friendly. Interior of delux cabins showing some needed repairs. Exterior areas are well maintained.
Dec 02, 2014
just a suggestion; there should be more dog cabins, especially during the Holldays.
Dec 02, 2014
Everyone at this KOA is so friendly and helpful, you accommodated our extended stay even though you were full and your guy helped me back a huge 5th wheel into a small site #29 which I would never have been able to do alone. The site is always clean, tidy, and the services are reliable. People obey the rules without the over policing in many parks. Great Job and happy holidays to all the staff

The personnel were friendly and helpful. The cabin was clean and well appointed. The outside was nice. We enjoyed the table, chairs, and barbecue. The store was very convenient. We are likely to return.

Employees rate a "10". Site we were given was not so pleasant with wet weather & no paved patio. With the rain entering RV was muddy and slippery. Need to make reservations earlier to get a desirable site. Previous stays have been great!
Dec 02, 2014
good, clean, comfortable, friendly!
Dec 02, 2014
It was the most wonderful camping experience. We even booked to go back in 3 weeks. Staff were very helpful and extremely pleasant. Great Job!

I was so impressed with this facility and loved everything about it. I was surprised at how smoothly the campground was run, at how much was available to us and to all the campers, at how clean and safe and fun it was. this will be our new family tradition. I've found our new place to migrate!
