We had a great stay and especially enjoyed all of the fun things for our two kids who are 8 and 10 years old!

This was our first time at a KOA and we were pleasantly surprised. The staff was amazing. Customer service a high priority for them and greatly appreciated by us! Our boys had such a great time with so many things to do and all the amenities the campground had was aawesome! We'll definitely be back!

PROs: onsite store for supplies, pet friendly, close to beach, showers, professional staff, & an affordable option. CONs: Kids are EVERYWHERE unsupervised!!! Riding bikes without looking & screaming while parents enjoy cocktails!!! Our cabin (#139) was on the main path to the bathroom & didnt have bushes for privacy like some of the cabins did. People were cutting through our site day & night.

This was the most relaxing camping trip ever! Many activities for the kiddos, and if I wanted to skip a cooking session, I could buy a hot dog and chips, or have pancake breakfast for $2-$5! Nice and clean. Good grounds for a dog too. Other campgrounds send my dog home with burrs in his fur!

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.

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.

The staff was very accomodating, especially since we had a power outage.
Apr 27, 2014
It would have been nice to have a fire pit kids where very sad
Apr 27, 2014
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.
Apr 26, 2014
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.
