This campground was the best koa I've been to and I've been to quite a few. The place was clean and very well maintained. The staff was happy and courteous, really on top of things. We'll be coming back to this kid oriented campground alot. Thanks to all the staff especially Polo, he is awesome.

This kamp ground had to many cabins. It felt more like it's own town than a camping experience. The tent camping sites were small and clustered together in a way that made it feel like it wasn't a true campsite. This KOA would be amazing if you stayed in a cabin but is awful for tent camping

We loved our stay at the camp ground. We did find for us that there was alot of children running around. And next time we would get one of the sites with no dirt. Kind of hard with the dogs and very dusty.we also found that some did not clean up after there dogs other wise we enjoyed our stay thank you

We chose KOA Santa Cruz because it looked so kid-friendly online. We were not disappointed! The kids loved the banana bikes, the jumping pillow, the playground. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back.

One of the nicest KOA's I've seen. Best part is how quiet it was at night.

Have been coming here for the past 6 years and have such a great time. Kids love it. I am just a little disappointed in the size of the trailer slots. They get smaller every year. Really starting to feel cramped. No room to park your car or firepit is too close to trailer if you pull all the way back. Wish they would take out all the planter boxes between each site and give you back some room.

Stay here is you have a large family with lots of young children and don't mind being scrunched together. Great place for families with young children. Very clean, staff is great, lots of fun things for the children to enjoy. Not so good for quiet time in nature.

We love this facility! Super family friendly & excellent staff. We have been coming back yearly for 15 years. Keep up the great work

Friendly, clean, easy to work with staff. Might want to think about having that little train go to the beach and back...just saying.

The facilities were very nice and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. Lots of fun stuff for the kids to do and they had a great time playing with their cousins at our family reunion. Tent sites could be a bit larger as it is hard to fit a family size car and tent in the site.

Really nice, very clean, and quiet. Hope your expected visitors were impressed with the camp ground, we were.

Usual good time. Two of our party were denied previously reserved sites. That is unacceptable.

We had a group of 28, 21 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and 7 staff. Our cabins were very nice. We were so busy going places that we didn't get to spend much time at the campground. We'd like to go back and stay and play at the campground sometime. Everyone was very nice that we did meet.

It was my first time at a KOA campground and my family and I loved it. The facility was so clean and the kids were never bored.
