Great stay! Kids had a ball, staff was so friendly and everything was clean and nice. I appreciated the hot coffee at the store, which by the way, was very well stocked and the prices were decent too. I'll be back.

We had another wonderful stay with this KOA. Service was great and friendly. I would like to THANK F.D. a night parol person. I made a mistake by throwing my husband cell phone in the trash, and F.D. happen to be driving by about 10pm and we found the phone in a big walk-in trash bin. THANKS AGAIN....

Friendly staff! Great activities, cabins, and amenities! Perfectly located near berry picking and the beach! Great time had by all!

The staff is great. Very accommodating and helped out when we needed a little more time checking out. The cabins were very expensive, but you do get a lot for the money.

Great time, we really enjoyed our stay. Bathrooms, showers very clean. Fun activites for the kids. Price to stay is a little steep. But over all good time!

We have 2boys so this Koa was great, a little loud at times but that was not a problem as the people were great and it is a kid friendly camp site.

We had a great time and found the staff at KOA so helpful, generous and kind. Only request...remind folks when they check in that kids are riding around the roads on bikes, scooters, etc. I notice during check-in and check-out people drove faster around the camp ground.

We stayed 5 nights in a 2 room cabin, and enjoyed it very much, plus LOVED the grounds, and all the fun things for the kiddos to do...We would like to see a drinking fountian, or a soda/juice/water, vending machine near the Kids area/jumping pillow... We plan on retuning next summer or sooner...'-)

My family stayed in one of the small cabins this time. The kids loved the Big Bouncer and playing with other kids on the playground. I loved the staff and how they always had a smile and asked if we needed anything. The grounds were kept clean even with the high turnover from Sunday to Monday. We even have a favorite cabin that we'll reserve for our next trip. Thanks for a great visit.

Great place for kids and adults. The nearby beach was wonderful as well as a nearby beach boardwalk! We will be back . Maybe we can make it an annual trip for our family.

This was my first visit to Santa Cruz KOA. The facility was clean, well run, and had many activities for our three kids. Our Kabin faced the forest, adding a certain amount of privacy and feeling of being in nature. The first night was very windy, but the rest of the time, it was very enjoyable.

Here's is the new slogan for this place -It's not Kamping, It's Kar-parking. The place is so overcrowded and very poorly designed. There is NO privacy or shade at many sites. Cabins are so close that when the neighbor used his grill it blew straight in to my cabin. Poor customer service and very understaffed. No supervision of pool or hot tub and both were way over capacity. I could go on...
