As always great time at the KOA in Watsonville. Visited before and will visit again!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Very well maintained sites. We will definitely be back! The only negative was the tile guys just across from us cutting tile etc....but that needs to be done to maintain the facilities!

We had a great time. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Plenty of activities to keep the kids entertained and less than a mile to the beach.

Great stay

This is my new favorite KOA. The staff was great!!!

We loved the people, surroundings and wonderful service. The downside was we had these larva that kept reappearing on our cabin porch. You did come right away with spray and cleaned them up. Sadly they returned.... We know it wasnt your fault. Stepping on them then walking into our cabin. It caused a great deal of clean up. Otherwise a fun and friendly place.

Best KOA ever!! Giant bouncy pillow, train rides, tree/rock climbing, mini golf, heated pool and hot tub, wonderful family place to camp. Even a dog walk and grooming station! Fantastic...can't wait to return. Kids had a ball and so did we!

Friendly staff, well maintained kids areas, clean park. A blast for the kids! Close to the beach. But the little ones didn't want to go anywhere else they were having so much fun at the KOA! Would love to return someday. Our first KOA. Thanks!

We really loved this KOA. Everything was perfect except for the wifi. When it's late and we wanted to relax it would have been nice for the kids to be able get on their devices.

My wife was ecstatic upon getting settled into our deluxe cabin which was more hotel than camp. They even had a pet friendly one for our "entire" family. The kids didn't want to leave. It was a bit crowded and sometimes a little stinky from the nearby landfill, but otherwise, it's a great KOA for a family. Also great central location for doing day trips to Big Sur and San Fra

Came down to go surfing-loved it!

We stayed in one of the Airstream Trailers. The staff was polite and helpful when we arrived. Our kids enjoyed the amenities such as, bounce pillow, play structure and pool.

Great KOA! Was very pleased.

Better than expected! We had a lot of fun and our kids were constantly entertained!

This was the nicest place I have ever stayed. There are so many activities for the kids. Staff was super friendly. They will even pick up your trash from the camp site. It doesn't get better than this with camping. Between the train rides, bouncey pad, gigantic playground, coconut climbing wall, pool, ping pong and basketball you're hard pressed to find a better place to stay for the kids.

We had our 3 grandchildren for 4 days and we all had a great time. the facilitites were clean and accessable to every age group. I would recommend having toilet bowl liners at the Beach area bathroom, and BTW the toilet has a water leak that needs attention. Other than that, I would rate this campground A+

Super great place for kids; so many fun things to do. We had a great time!

very nice with plenty for the young ones
Mar 25, 2015
Super clean. Very beautiful. Loved all the beach/surf theme decorations.
Mar 25, 2015
We have two little ones and we absolutely love this KOA. We've stayed at others and this one just fits us perfectly. This time we stayed at a back-in off the jumper/beach area and it was perfect as we could watch the kids while sitting at the campfire. Perfect!

Kabin was great and staff friendly. My car was broken into at 2am on the 2nd night. Security did not answer the call or return my call when I left a message. The alarm scared them off, so they got nothing that I could find so I guess it's just one of those things you expect from places like this.
Mar 25, 2015
Couldn't have been a better stay. Fantastic place for families with kids. Great amenities and value. Staff was super nice and helpful. My kids did not want to leave! We'll definitely be going there again.
Mar 24, 2015
VERY CLEAN AND EXTREMELY ATTENTIVE STAFF.

This was a beautiful place! Clean, family friendly, dog friendly. Can't wait to come back!
Mar 24, 2015
Very clean. Very pleasant and friendly staff. Definitely will be going back.
Mar 24, 2015
Great Time, clean and well maintained, will visit again soon.
Mar 24, 2015
The staff was always extremely friendly and willing to help. Camp site were clean and well maintained.
Mar 24, 2015
The only negative thing I have to say is that originally, the campsite I was assigned did not fit the description I was given over the phone when making the reservation. I went back to the office and they were able to move me to one that was closer to what I expected. The rest of the stay was great. Very clean, well kept, something for everyone. Lots of stuff for the kids and dogs.
Mar 24, 2015
The facility was great, but the staff fantastic. I manage a hotel in Northern California and would hire any one of them that I encountered to work our front desk (in a heartbeat). We look forward to staying here again and other KOA's in the system. Regards, Bob Everhart

This KOA was very nice. It was clean and the staff was kind. The only issue I had was being directed to the wrong space and after setting up completely I realized a staff member directed us to the incorrect space. I made contact with the office and was told I would need to move to the correct space. I did not have an issue with that but it would have been nice if they offered some assistance.

Great park, just to bad not all activities advertised were not happening. Considered at off season, but was school break and a weekend, place was packed. Also to many dogs, should have an area were dogs are allowed not whole park. There were dogs in the store, play area, bathrooms, poor dog owners, but the rest of us should not have to deal. Dogs all around us and they all barked at every walker.

The Santa Cruz KOA is Clean, Safe + Friendly! Another great feature is the Location. It's btwn Santa Cruz + Watsonville, making the KOA a perfect place to stay for 'day trips' to Two 'California Icons' - the Santa Cruz Boardwalk + the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The Staff are friendly + very child + pet friendly. Once you stay at Santa Cruz KOA - I promise it will be the first of many,lifelong memories

Great family oriented place. This was my third time there. The only downsides were that there was only one bathroom for the whole campground and no one could connect to the wifi.
