We love this KOA! This trip particularly was wonderful! Have to say that FDR was super helpful, friendly, and awesome. He made my wife back up the trailer for the first time in one try!!she was so happy to do it.

Love your campground. I wish you did the "stay one night get the second night free" much more often, once a month or every two months. We would come every time. My kids love the activities.

I was very impressed with the customer service at this KOA. They go out of their way to make everyone's stay enjoyable. It is a family friendly environment with a long list of fun things to do.

Clean, well laid out. Awesome activities for the kids, and really friendly and professional staff. My kids LOVED the coconut climbing tree!

My husband, two grandsons ages 2 and 5 camped with us. Our trailer backed up to the wonderful playground where the boys spent most of the weekend. My five yr. old grandson said his favorite part of the park was the miniature golf, which I loved too, and the pool . This is a great campground for families. There are many activities available, and the park is extremely clean. The park looked ful

Great potential but attention to detail missing. We were put next to someone who works there and their site was a mess! The dog area was over a hill and grass not cut. WiFi was slow. Secure.

unclean restrooms, noisy area, constantly barking dog (highest fee during the USA trip)

WOW - this is our favorite KOA! FD is always helpful in getting our rig backed in! He is a super friendly person that is an asset to your KOA! Pretty much the whole staff rocks and the campground is a great place for our family!!

I took two grandchildren to KOA Santa Cruz last week. It's a great place for young children.

Wander full place to have relax time

Awesome. Clean, well maintained, plenty for the kids to do. The only "negatives" would be 1- it is a fairly expensive camp stay (but the full hookups made it worth it) and 2- The tall woman (mgr?) was rude when I asked for a list of activities. She acted like my question was stupid and rattled off the train and where to catch it- total opposite exp. from the very frndly curly haired blond gate guy

The grandkids loved the play structure and the bouncy pillow! It's our fourth or fifth trip there with them!

I spent the whole time trying to keep other campers off my site. People were using my site as a walk way. Had other campers looking through my stuff.always had to keep my guard up. Not the way I like to camp.

wifi connection not perfect

The grounds were great, staff were really helpful. Put you need to put out houses by the pool. I heard one parent tell her kids to just got in the pool. We booked for 3 days ourselves & the camp to the north of us did the same on the second night the group 2 spaces were totally out of control, drunk, rude, & screamed profanity for hours. We packed up&left @night.

This is a very nice park that seems to focus on cabins moreover RV camping, great if you have children. We don't. So for families this place is chock full. But for a couple that have no kids and enjoy luxury rv camping...really pricey for a lot of noise and kids in the street. Definitely an a+ for families, but a d- for our needs.

We have stayed at your facilities and have enjoyed our stay. The camp grounds have been updated nicely. The staff were awesome . I realize it was Labor Day weekend and the campground was packed , the noise level the last three nights after 10pm was annoying and before 7am .

The best campground our family has ever stayed at. Amazing

Another wonderful stay at SC/Monterey KOA! This was our fourth visit and it was terrific as usual. More sites have been upgraded and several items have been added to the recreation areas. The owners and staff were exceptionally helpful and went out of their way to interact with the campers. We've stayed at 14 different KOA's and this is definitely the best.

Very nice and clean grounds, bathrooms and showers. Each RV site had plenty of personal space to hang out. Very family friendly. We don't have any young kids but it was nice seeing all of the families laughing and having a good time. Staff was nice and professional. Close to lots of beaches and activities. This was our first stay in a KOA and we will definitely look for more KOA's.

Everything was very nice. The staff were all pleasant. Restrooms were clean. The only problem was that our site was located next to a tree. This tree dropped dew every morning. Once we arrived home and tried washing our Tahoe and trailer did we realize that they are stained! Not very happy about that.

The campground was great as always, the only problem we had was kids and parents alike traipsing through our campsite to get to the Activities Hub. Next time we will make sure we're no where near that.
