camp sites are on top of each other, it's like living in an apartment complex.

Clean, well laid out. Awesome activities for the kids, and really friendly and professional staff. My kids LOVED the coconut climbing tree!

My husband, two grandsons ages 2 and 5 camped with us. Our trailer backed up to the wonderful playground where the boys spent most of the weekend. My five yr. old grandson said his favorite part of the park was the miniature golf, which I loved too, and the pool . This is a great campground for families. There are many activities available, and the park is extremely clean. The park looked ful

Great potential but attention to detail missing. We were put next to someone who works there and their site was a mess! The dog area was over a hill and grass not cut. WiFi was slow. Secure.

My stay didn't go as well as I hoped. The KOA advertised play structures, evening entertainment and Sunday, optional pancake breakfast. Unfortunately, the KOA had a high number of unattended older children that made it unsafe for my child to play on the bounce structure. These children also provided the only evening entertainment-screaming while playing 'til late. Also, no pancakes on Sunday.

unclean restrooms, noisy area, constantly barking dog (highest fee during the USA trip)

WOW - this is our favorite KOA! FD is always helpful in getting our rig backed in! He is a super friendly person that is an asset to your KOA! Pretty much the whole staff rocks and the campground is a great place for our family!!

MY FAMILY AND I HAD AN AMAZING TIME AT YOUR LOCATION.We were unable to find our cabin as it was our first time and were quickly guided by one of your employees who asked us to check our cabin to make sure everything was ok. Wow you have tought of everything. The cabin was bright clean and cheery. I was blown away that we had a full size fridge/freezer.

The Indian crap was awful. It was after 10:00 and the poor guy working went 4 times to tell them to keep it down. didn't work. The campground tent sites are not what we saw on your advertisement. We did have fun neighbors next to us the first night so that was fun.

I took two grandchildren to KOA Santa Cruz last week. It's a great place for young children.

Wander full place to have relax time

Awesome. Clean, well maintained, plenty for the kids to do. The only "negatives" would be 1- it is a fairly expensive camp stay (but the full hookups made it worth it) and 2- The tall woman (mgr?) was rude when I asked for a list of activities. She acted like my question was stupid and rattled off the train and where to catch it- total opposite exp. from the very frndly curly haired blond gate guy

I was impressed with the campground and the amenities in the beginning. There was a large homeless camp behind the fence of our campsite with a terrible smell. There was a very large group of people (~100) who were extremely loud and disruptive all night and the quiet hours were not enforced. The wireless internet they provided did not work. I was extremely dissatisfied and demanded a refund.

The grandkids loved the play structure and the bouncy pillow! It's our fourth or fifth trip there with them!

I spent the whole time trying to keep other campers off my site. People were using my site as a walk way. Had other campers looking through my stuff.always had to keep my guard up. Not the way I like to camp.

wifi connection not perfect

The grounds were great, staff were really helpful. Put you need to put out houses by the pool. I heard one parent tell her kids to just got in the pool. We booked for 3 days ourselves & the camp to the north of us did the same on the second night the group 2 spaces were totally out of control, drunk, rude, & screamed profanity for hours. We packed up&left @night.

This is a very nice park that seems to focus on cabins moreover RV camping, great if you have children. We don't. So for families this place is chock full. But for a couple that have no kids and enjoy luxury rv camping...really pricey for a lot of noise and kids in the street. Definitely an a+ for families, but a d- for our needs.

We have stayed at your facilities and have enjoyed our stay. The camp grounds have been updated nicely. The staff were awesome . I realize it was Labor Day weekend and the campground was packed , the noise level the last three nights after 10pm was annoying and before 7am .

I was a little surprised to discover what "The Beach" actually meant. I thought this campground was literally on the beach. Otherwise very nice and clean.

We liked staying in the Airstream. We plan on returning next year.

Had a great weekend, the only problem was the new light post behind cabin 123. The light was shining through our back cabin window (onto my husbands pillow) ALL night long! Will never stay in that cabin again...

Great place to take the family and hang out with friends. Bathrooms kept very clean. Do wish the pool was a little bigger.

Everything was great, except the WiFi was terrible and not usable.
