This is a great campground for families with kids. We were lucky to be there during the week, so it was nice and quiet. It is a beautiful campground that is very well maintained. Staff is very friendly.

people friendly & nice
May 14, 2015
We weren't around that much but enjoyed our stay. We used spa and had a couple of fires. Nice and quiet Sunday and Monday but I imagine it gets busy. Campsites are nice and good size. we visited Monterey and Santa Cruz from here
May 14, 2015
Too expensive and bath house needs updating and not clean. Bath door opens to inside too small for larger people. Men's bathroom stalls filthy.
May 13, 2015
Nice clean camp grounds, we enjoy staying here. Close to Monterey and Santa Cruz.
May 13, 2015
Your climbing wall was not opened as advertised. Silent auction disappointing. With people hovering over the bidding items, we might as well have had a "REAL" open bidding process.
May 12, 2015
Beautiful KOA!! By far my favorite place to stay! I miss all the fun events for Cancer camp that use to happen! I.E. Tie-dye and auction items instead of camp ground stays and cabins. Otherwise great trip great people who run this campground! Can't wait to come back!!
May 12, 2015
Always helpful and mostly friendly, especially when help is needed for backing in a camp spot !!!
May 12, 2015
We've stayed here the last 3 Mother's Day weekend and enjoyed it a lot. We even invited more friends this year bc we enjoy it so much. Disappointed with the auction and sale this year, but always enjoy the s'mores and pancake breakfast. Wished the weather was warmer so that we can enjoy the pool more, but we do appreciate that it's a heated pool. Can't wait until next year!

We have a few thoughts. First, many times strangers would walk thru our site. This is uncomfortable for us as kids are younger in age and were concerned for their safety. There were two separate incidents where others parked at our open space. We had to ask them to move their car. Perhaps at check in time, staff members can ask people to not walk thru someones site.
May 12, 2015
We love staying at the Santa Cruz KOA. Everybody on the staff are so nice and helpful. Thank you as always! We'll be back!
May 12, 2015
Excellent stay.
May 12, 2015
Clean, safe, lots of activities for children.The staff are very accommodating. Fun time!
May 12, 2015
I reserved a full hook up site listed on the website as backing up to a nature area. I was given a site which was not only not adjacent to a nature area, it backed to the mini golf course and bordered on the other side by a rope to the path to the beach area, the most heavily traveled path in the park. KOA needs a better reservation website and needs to reclassify that site as beach area.
May 12, 2015
Great time!!!
May 12, 2015
I understand it was a busy week-end but the park spacing is so crammed together it was like spending the week-end in a parking lot. The bathrooms were never cleaned for our entire 3 day stay and even towels were out for part of the stay, unacceptable. They placed us in a site that was not large enough for our unit. The clerk (badge said asst mgr) even confirmed that our unit was 25 feet.
May 12, 2015
Lots for kids to do!
May 12, 2015
The RV spots are roomy and private and lots of things for kids to do.
May 12, 2015
Very clean and so much for families to do!
May 12, 2015

May 12, 2015
Great
May 12, 2015
Great family campground for kids. But we didn't have kids and it seemed like they put the adult campers in a quieter section of the resort.

May 12, 2015
Very kid friendly. Clean. It would be great if we could pick our sites and to be able to be with the people in our group. Our site was a very tight fit to get into. We only slept there.
May 12, 2015
Staff were extremely friendly. Sites were clean,fire pits were good additions for a pleasant stay. Our BBQ grill did not work, didn't ignite. Need work with quality control.
May 12, 2015
