What a great weekend we loved watching all the kids have such a good time on the play equipment and hear the stories of the fun time at the beaches will definitely be back. Scouted out some different sites we'd like to hook up to

Great KOA, very clean, friendly and helpful staff. Only negative is location of TV cable connector under the box. Side mounted would have been more user friendly so you don't have to stand on your head. Otherwise, our stay was great!

We stayed in a lodge & loved it for its cleanliness & convenience. Not having to pack beddings & linens is a big plus for us as well. The staff is very friendly & there's so much for kids to do, so it's such a fun place to stay.

very clean and loved how much was provided in cabin. Only downsides were:1. store closes at 6, wish it stayed open til 8. 2. alot of arcade games either didn't work or took your money & all the change machines didn't work. 3. reserved a cabin where full bed & bunks were suppose to be in same rm & got a cabin w/ only the full bed in rm & bunks out in hallway. Will go back & recommend it

We had a very enjoyable time. We stayed in a rustic cabin and loved it. However, our 7 year old got his fingers caught in the lever that comes down as you shut the door, they were swollen:( I love the feel of the "rustic" nature, but, perhaps they need to be looked at for child safety? And, dissappointed the ping pong tables not open:( And palm tree climbing hours r lacking:(

For the high price we had to pay we did not feel the site was good. It was a 30 amp back in site in which the amps were weak. We could not access the Wi-Fi and the attendent sent us in backwards causing us to almost Jack-knife the unit to get in the spot.

This park was absolutely beautiful and huge. This is perfect for children with so many things to do and the planned activities. We would love to bring our grandchildren here but living in Washington state would be quite a trip for them. It's a 5 star KOA

Great location, well kept grounds, staff very helpful and friendly, pull through sites have BBQs, table and chairs, swing and a fire pit and are long enough to park your rig and vehicle. WiFi needs improvement and very little AT&T service.

This was our 2nd visit at this location and again it was great. The only thing we were dissapointed in was the Coconut Tree Climb was not open. One of the reasons we loved this location was all the kid activities you provide and just feel they should be available at least once a day (if kids are requesting it). Other than that, we truly enjoyed our stay and will return.

Nice and friendly! I was making a quick weekend of it as I was simply trying to learn all the features of my new fifth wheel. Everything worked smooth, was clean and staff all super helpful. Thanks KOA

Beautiful KOA. Possibly the nicest one I've stayed at. Within 15 minutes of Santa Cruz and Capitola and 1/2 hour on Monterey. Great for small children and adults alike.

We were visiting relatives just for the day, who had an RV spot at KOA. While we were there, we decided to rent a deluxe room because the kids were having so much fun. The Deluxe Room was great! We will definitely be back!

I love the surroundings, the kids, the employees were very nice and everyone seemed to be truly enjoying themselves! That is why I am coming back in a couple of weeks with more RV'ers!

I have had the pleasure of experiencing this KOA Campground 4 times in the last 6 months. have been very happy clean restrooms great water pressure. I share this experience with my 4 and a half year old son.He loves it as well. when you become familiar with the area you can enjoy a beautiful beach At sand dollar Beach in 3 or 4 minutes from the campground.

The only problem my family and I had was during our stay there were large group of school kids going through our site as a short cut. I have a 3yo daughter that gets frighten everytime she see a stranger. you can imagine how many time she ran to her parents when she see someone she don't know.

Friendly, Clean, FUN! Appreciated the delivery of the fire-wood and Ice! Loved the jumper! Local SC attractions and beaches so close! Looking forward to our next trip!
Feb 26, 2014
Amazing location. Weather was fantastic. Everyone was so friendly. We'll definately be back. Thanks for a great time.
Feb 26, 2014
excellent, friendly staff. Only issue we had with our stay was the lack of internet service, hit and miss, mostly miss.
Feb 26, 2014
We will definitely come back again!

super clean and we had a very nice space heater that kept us warm and cozy!

We did have to report a very bad electrical problem that we noticed with the hookup on site 85, and when we called the office, the line was busy. There was no way to report an emergency situation about the park to the park--and it was very near the large number of children. We had to send one adult to go tell the office on foot and one to stand guard over the open and hot wires.

Employees were extremely nice and helpful. Was so surprised on how clean the whole place was. Bathrooms and showers were cleaner than any gas station or rest stop bathrooms than I have ever seen. Just loved this KOA, it was beautiful location with marvelous people.
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 :)
