My husband and I wanted a couple of days at the beach. We had a restful stay and were close enough to go to Santa Cruz and Half Moon Bay for lunch :)

We are from Massachusetts and visit our Son & family in Santa Cruz frequently. Until our stay at this KOA we almost gave up on finding a good RV Park in The Santa Cruz area. Hallelujah....this park is THE BEST! Friendly is an understatement, clean, spacious and lots of family (kid) activities, more than I've seen in any other RV park. You will never be bored in The Santa Cruz/Monterey RV Park

Very nice park. Park live in employees a little loud with their motorcycle.

Position of sewer drain a little to high. Otherwise thoroughly enjoyed out stay. Glad pool was up and running last year there was a problem with bacteria and they closed it our whole stay. we have recommended this KOA to others over the years and just gave your brochure to a fellow employee this morning!

This is our 2nd visit and we really enjoyed it. You had a lot to offer. The only thing we did not care for, was the mini golf course. Each hole had a huge rock or shell on it which I think was completely unnecessary. Otherwise, we had a great time and the staff was wonderful.

We enjoyed our stay there and will definitely be back. The grounds and sites were well maintained and the staff were friendly and helpful. Although it appears to be an ideal campground for families with children, it is a large campground with plenty of spaces away from the awesome play area.

Perfect family destination. We will be back.

Like always very clean and friendly.

From my first contact with KOA, it was Ashley, great customer service even remembered my name and the phone call we had a week earlier about my special needs. We were welcomed and treated just like family. From guest services, FD, Ryan, Billy they walked us through the procedure of hooking up all our utilities, (it was our first time with a motor home camping). It was a very positive experience.

I booked us for two more weekends and joined the KOA club within an hour of arriving for our first stay!!!!! I can't think of a single thing that could possibly make this KOA better!

I had never used a Komfort Kabin before--and now I feel able to camp in comfort. The bathrooms/showers were clean, the jacuzzi and swimming pool were great--and there were activities for my 6-yr old grand-niece to do as well. The staff were all friendly and helpful, as well. We never left the campgrounds, and I feel like I've had a real vacation.

We always love coming to this koa and have recommended it to many people who have never been- and they always love it too. I wish the dog play area was nicer- maybe a flatter area without the gopher holes.

We had a great time. We were close to both Santa Cruz and Monterey, as well as Manresa and Sunset state beaches. This was our second stay, and we'll be back for a third.

My grandson and I had a great time!
Feb 22, 2015
Excellent amenities. Caring Staff. A can't miss destination.
Feb 21, 2015
Nice place,great employees. The only negative is not all the showers are working properly, some give you only lukewarm water. They raised the monthly stay from 1000 to 1200 a month. I would of stayed longer if not for the rate hike.
Feb 21, 2015
First time at KOA with my staff team. They loved it and had the time of their lives. So glad I was able to bring my dog. They even had amenities for him too! Also they had anything you needed just in case. Love our stay and will be back soon!
Feb 21, 2015
We had a wonderful time at KOA! There is plenty to do with the swimming pool, hot tub, bouncy pillow, playground, bike riding! The staff was very helpful and nice! Will definitely be returning!
Feb 21, 2015
I loved it. The cabin was clean and well equiped
Feb 21, 2015
We absolutley love the Santa Cruz KOA! The only thing that could make it better is if the Deluxe Cabins had a king size bed. Although the queen is a comfortable bed, it's too small when our little ones that crawl into bed with us in the middle of the night. Other than that, we always have a fantastic time and cannot wait to return!
Feb 21, 2015
Nice staff; so much for kids to do even in the off-season. Restrooms and cabin were clean.
Feb 21, 2015
I arrived at 8Pm bUT no problem to get the key.all service was extremely good.I ill come back soon with my friend.
Feb 20, 2015
The wifi coverage is horrible. I have heard this from many friends and expirianced it myself this past weekend. For the price of the stay and the increase in technology used today, this system MUST be upgraded. Please place more routers or boost throughout the camp.
Feb 20, 2015
Stayed in the airstream. It was great!
Feb 19, 2015
Always a lot of fun and the staff is great!!!
Feb 19, 2015
The staff is very friendly, informative and organized. The sites and bathrooms are clean and spacious. We loved our experience so much, we've booked our next weekend there and made it our home base!
Feb 19, 2015
It was a good time with family and friends at our annual long weekend get away.
Feb 19, 2015
Enjoyed our stay as always. Been enjoying camping there for over 30years. It is a great family place.
Feb 19, 2015
We love that the campground is so well kept up and still full of "nature". Everyone was so friendly and helpful. "We'll be back." :-)
Feb 19, 2015
WE loved it but it did have many hidden fees which greatly increased the cost

Great stay, kids had a blast.
Feb 19, 2015
Excellent as always, but the bathrooms didn't seem to be getting a lot of attention this time around.
Feb 19, 2015
Great people, the folks at this koa were very welcoming and helpful in guiding us to awesome places as well!!
Feb 19, 2015
It was all good accept the Internet

This was our second trip to the Santa Cruz KOA and first time in a cabin. We love it here. We paid $100 for one night. This is too expensive for primitive camping. However, it can be the only lodging available in the area, and has saved us in the past. Until we find another option, KOA is our go-to spot.
Feb 18, 2015
This is our second year staying in a cabin. Last year we were disappointed with the cabin because of cleanliness. This year our cabin was Small but cute and very clean. Our only issue was no hot water. After paying over $200 Per night it was upsetting. We arrived a Saturday afternoon and went to give our 2 toddlers baths at 7pm no hot water and no way to get a hold of anyone til 8 am sunday
Feb 18, 2015
We absolutely love it here. The staff and location are awesome. We camp here 3-6 times a year. However this was the first time I felt like other campers needed to pay more attention to their pets. Way too many dogs barking.
