The Geounds are kept uo very nicely. The cabin we stay in was clean and co for table. There is so much fun for kids camping here. The pool is very clean and the staff friendly, helpful,and laid back. What a great experience!

Enjoyed 1 night stay here in tent campsite. Well maintained & clean, nice grounds, @1 mile from beach. Plenty RV sites & Kamping Kabins. 1 criticism: not allowing people to sleep in their mini-vans. I am not homeless and wanted to camp by sleeping in mini-van. I was told KOA does not allow this, but let me do it this one time. Would recommend KOA anyway.

The nicest KOA we have stayed at ever!We have stayed at several throughout the western states and this by far is the best.

Beautiful campgrounds clean and very organized.deluxe cabin very nice. We expected more activities for the kids. Website showed more organized activities for children. I know it is a little off season. Next time we will come in the summer.

Clean, safe, friendly :)

Great improvements including pavers at site, additional sewer hookup, nicely pruned trees. Kids loved the jumping pillow and the cycles. Staff friendly, efficient. Garbage pickup at site and delivery of wood very much appreciated.

Overall the place was great, the staff were extremely nice. BUT our cabin when we checked in had a putrid rotten smell. The mattresses are extremely poor when you wake up the next morning with a stiff neck and back.

What a great place for kids and adults who still like to play :)

The campsite was very clean and functional. When quiet time came it was truely quiet time. The kids, from other camp sites, had many enjoyable activities and fun things to do during the day. We saw children riding their bikes around the park laughing and having fun, as it should be when camping. Have recommended this KOA to other family members and friends. We will be back again soon.

We stayed in a deluxe cabin while we wait for our new trailer to arrive...1st time and we loved it! Very clean and had everything but our food and clothes. Made it very easy.

wish they had a shuttle to the actual beach, but the beach shack is nice.

Really well maintained and very family oriented. Had a blast with the Grandkids!

Very clean and well maintained. Quiet (if you stay away from the play area). Great family park close to the beach.

My four daughters, my wife, and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will be returning in a few months to stay a bit longer so we can enjoy all of the amenities. Thanks for a great stay!

Great for young families. I had teenagers with me and the place was over run with little kids. Small pool for such a large facility. Could use a good cleaning of game room. Overall we had a fun time.

Enjoyed our stay very much. Always such a great family time with our grandkids!

We had a wonderful experience staying here! It's very well kept with lots of things for the kids to do and close to other Santa Cruz attractions! We just wish there was a small child play set and swing. The ones they have are for older children.

Had another wonderful stay here. The staff continue to impress our group with their friendliness and hospitality.

This KOA is emaculate! My only disappointment is that they charged $6.00 PER PERSON to attend our campsite BBQ. We booked this KOA to see our family who lives in the area. We fronted an additional $42.00. I thought that was steep since our site was paid for in full, and this gathering was only for 3 hours.

Cleann facilities and grounds. Friendly, efficient staff.

I love this place! My son and I come a few times a year with various friends and we always bring our two dogs. This stay was for a few days during spring break with some friends. It was our first time in a deluxe cabin...super nice! Staff are friendly and I appreciate the effort that goes into keeping this location very clean. We are coming back for the 4th of July.

The staff is always very friendly. We love that the kids have lots of activities to do away from our camp site.

This was our 3rd year in a row that we have visited KOA, staying in a deluxe cabin. The grandkids always have a great time at the pool and jumping on the the big bouncer. The staff is always pleasant and campground is pretty clean. Its a 15 minute drive into Watsonville and 5 minutes to the beach. See you again!

I love this place. So fun and safe for the kids. My only exception is the playground. It is very fun but there is not enough dirt an bark between the end of the slides and the ground. It is unsafe for my three year old because he went down the slide and hit his head because there was to much of a drop. Awesome that the pool is heated too. It was 50 degrees out and the pool was packed.
