My family had a blast. The campgrounds were well maintained and very clean. The people were friendly and served with a smile. I have already recommended this place to several friends. I will return soon. Thank you.

What a great place for kids. We had plans to go to the boardwalk but the kids didn't said they would rather stay and play at the campground.

Me and my family had a great weekend. As usual the staff was excellent.

I love this KOA. Growing up it was my family's main vacation spot. Now that I am an adult I'm looking forward to sharing the KOA experience with my own growing family.

We love this KOA! We have 2 kids. (2,3y/o) plenty of activities and safe environment. FD and Shane make us feel like family each time we arrive. Great staff. Clean facilities. Can't say enough. We always end up booking our next stay before we leave. We started bringing other families down and they love it too.

It would have been nice to have a fire pit kids where very sad

Had a wonderful time despite the power outage! The staff made sure there was still many fun things to do and that we had what we needed. Can't wait to go back!

There was no power or water the second night of our stay in the camping cabins.

Just wanted to commend the Watsonville KOA staff for trying to go above and beyond after a tree falling onto power lines caused the campground to lose electricity and water during our stay on 4/23. We were in a deluxe cabin, and they were quick to bring us a flashlight, additional bedding, and ice to try to make our situation a little easier. They were all friendly during a trying and busy time.

The cabin was very clean and had more amenities than we had anticipated which is awesome! The staff was very helpful and friendly. We also felt safe allowing the kids to play freely on the campgrounds. We'll definitely be back and have already recommended KOA to many friends and family.

We really enjoyed our stay and will make this an annual pilgrimage for our family.

Overall good experience - nice place for the kids. My 8 year old daughter enjoyed her heart's out. Rest rooms were clean. We were told couple of times by the night petrol guy to go inside the cabin and not talk outside which I felt was too much. We did not make any loud noise, it seems some people come to KOA with an intention of complaining about others. Will come back.

The stay was perfect and the campground is full of great surprises for a family. Our only regret is that we were assigned a cabin on the busiest intersection of the campground and directly across from a wonderful play area for small children. We were traveling with two seventeen year old children and would have appreciated a quieter more remote cabin, many were vacant during our stay.

Love it every time we come! Michael was a great help getting us in for the weekend!!!!

This was our first time here! My son had so much fun he didn't want to leave! I promised him we would return in the summer. We had a deluxe cabin which was very nice and clean. The firepit outside our cabin was wonderful as was the gas BBQ. I can stop raving abt this place to my friends!

Besides the racoon incident we had a great time !!!

Love it here- was a little disappointed that our cabin wasn't ready till 3:00- and they didn't offer to give the kids wristbands to go play while we waited or offered an extension to our stay like a late check out. Otherwise, we love coming here with friends and family.
