Campground Reviews

Nov 12, 2014
Other campers were very rude! Adults and children alike were going right thru our site at all hours of the day and night-very rude and inconsiderate! Alot of the items listed are not available like they were and the online site did not say so either! Not good!

I stay at the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay KOA about one or two times each quarter. I always enjoy every day I am there. The entire facility is great and the staff is absolutely superb. The one who stands out as a bright light is FD. He always has such a great attitude and is willing to go the extra mile to make everyones visit a great experience. T Irby. U.S. Army retired

Loved this place!! Great for kids! The RV sites are well maintained and clean. Our friends stayed in a cabin and they loved it as well. The store is awesome as well, especially if you forgot get something.

Great location so close to Manresa and Sunset Beaches. We statyed with a large group on a busy weekend and the place never seemed overcrowed. The KOA staff keep it clean and there were friendly people all around. Great times at KOA as usual...

Fun and friendly family environment. Facilities are immaculate. We were able to enjoy a movie on the big screen as well as the pool, bouncy pillow, and ping pong.....all in the middle of November! We'll be back!

Hubby and I took our maiden voyage in our first trailer, so we went here to be safe. This KOA is very kid-oriented, but we were not bothered by all the kids there. We were in space 54, and it was very quiet back there. We took 2 lil dogs and happy it was very dog-friendly. Staff was professional, friendly and helpful, and the grounds were clean. Great place for easy "camping."

Cannot say enough how amazing the staff is. From the time we arrived until the time we left the staff would visit, and make sure we were completely satisfied. A very special "shout out" to F D. You made the difference sir. Ward Fsmily Hollister, CA

So much to do. The lodge was clean and came with everything we needed. A few maintence problems we encountered were taken care of right away.

We had a great time "glamping" in Cabin 113 on our sister getaway weekend! So nice to relax by the fire ring in a safe & clean environment.

The staff for very friendly and helpful. It would have been better if our club would have been clustered rather than separated.

The Airstream I had booked was very nice but due to all my friends staying a bit farther away in deluxe cabins and the rainy weekend cancelling lots of reservations I was able to upgrade to the next cabin over and we had THE BEST WEEKEND EVER! Thanks! -Pete

2nd time for koa & this one, we have been camping for over 40 years & never has anything been stolen, this weekend we had our sons & their family (2 sites & a cabin) a boys & a mens bike were stolen. I was very unhappy with how the staff handled it. Very unhappy!!! Dorothy Smith

We had a great time!

No Kabins were available with heat and bathroom. Didn't know heaters could be had at the desk. Mattresses not firm enough for us, 150 - 200# we bottomed out. The pool and hot tub were a life saver.

Halloween weekend number three was great. A lot quieter then weekend two but still fun.

We love staying at your KOA and always have a great time. The only thing that I wish was different is the checkout time. I wish checkout was 12:00 instead of 11:00.

It was a nice stay and a fun time, however there weren't as many activities for the kids as in previous years which is disappointing considering this is the most expensive KOA.

There were 7 of us. We had a most enjoyable time. Two of my friend brought their airstream. The cabins were clean, well equipped. The grounds were great. We playec pee wee golf, very fun.Close to the beautiful ocean, for a great walk. BBQ and eating area was perfect....a great sunset. Lovely time of the year.

Awesome, so much fun. Only recommendations is no vehicles pass through during the trick or treat time frame. 5:00 pm til 6:30. Park at office and walk up.
