Campground Reviews

Feb 25, 2014
i was a little disappointed. first they call on Saturday that the pool is not working. Then we get there and there is no mention tha ton Saturday the train is working and the tree climbing is also not available on Sundays. Heads up would be good, my kids were disappointed.

We always love our stays at this KOA. Great staff. Very helpful and the campground is always spotless. My in laws stayed in a cabin and loved it. Very cute inside with all the conveniences of home. We were happy campers :)

First time staying in deluxe lodge. Perfect! Loved the ease of the sofa bed, the handy kitchen and sink. Love the staff that worked the climbing tree, train, counter, fire wood delivery & trash collection. Bummer about pool not being avail, but still had a blast- and memories for a lifetime Thanks!

My only criticism is that the WiFi on my iPhone was incredibly slow for doing simple web searches and opening web pages. I'm NOT talking about Netflix or YouTube, BTW. I'm talking about simple, static web pages.

Staff were super helpful and even friendlier. Pool was closed but to make up we were given free use of the banana bikes for my kids! Awesome.

We had a wonderful time. The facilities are great. We had an unexpected hiccup with the water due to some renovations they are doing and the staff handled it immediately and were all very nice.

Our grandsons had a wonderful time...they enjoyed "The Bouncer",tree climbing, bikes and making new friends. We felt that we were in a little neighborhood with all the other families as we sat around our campfire toasting marshmallows,making s'mores and recounting the day's activities.

Our cabin was the perfect size and well-equipped for our family of four. Lots of activities for kids and fast, friendly service. We will definitely be back!

This was our first time staying at this facility. We were amazed, very organized. Loved the heated pool and jacuzzi. Campsite was extremely clean. We loved it so much that we booked another adventure for March.

When we were driving in we were thinking where are we going? When we arrived we were amazed at all of the amenities for the whole family, the staff ( all of them ) could not do enough for the guest. Great job, great place to stay, give yourselves a huge pat on the back.

Best KOA that I have stayed at!

Super friendly and helpful staff. Cabins were very clean and we'll stocked. We will definitely be staying here again :)

Friendly and helpful staff. Kid-friendly activities. Deluxe Lodge/Cabin had all the amenities expected, although the loft and stairs need new flooring (very dirty carpeting)

People that work at the campground are amazing!!! They are absolutely devoted to making sure our camping experience is the best it can be every time we stay!

I enjoyed my stay. We have no kids that travel with us so we missed a lot of the fun. If this campground had an adults only spa, it would be perfect. The one in the pool area was full of kids so we did not use it.

Extremely family friendly campground, all of the staff were very nice and helpful.

Amazingly fantastic ! The only downside was the pool water looked clean but it was cloudy and murky.

The Santa Cruz/Monterey KOA is fantastic! The playground, jump pillow, climbing tree and more, kept the kids busy for hours. Unlike other KOA's this one allows pit bulls, which was a major safety concern with our kids.

Our family had a great time. The amenities were clean, employees were very nice and helpful and the attractions were great for the kids. We will definitely come back again.

The Kampground was very clean. We enjoyed using several of the amenities including the mini golf course and palm tree climb. My only concern was that we paid for a delux site and could barely fit our camper on the site with our truck. We hadn't used this camp before and will definitely ask for specific spots next time. We plan to return sometime....
