My only criticism is that the WiFi on my iPhone was incredibly slow for doing simple web searches and opening web pages. I'm NOT talking about Netflix or YouTube, BTW. I'm talking about simple, static web pages.

Staff were super helpful and even friendlier. Pool was closed but to make up we were given free use of the banana bikes for my kids! Awesome.

Our grandsons had a wonderful time...they enjoyed "The Bouncer",tree climbing, bikes and making new friends. We felt that we were in a little neighborhood with all the other families as we sat around our campfire toasting marshmallows,making s'mores and recounting the day's activities.

This was our first time staying at this facility. We were amazed, very organized. Loved the heated pool and jacuzzi. Campsite was extremely clean. We loved it so much that we booked another adventure for March.

When we were driving in we were thinking where are we going? When we arrived we were amazed at all of the amenities for the whole family, the staff ( all of them ) could not do enough for the guest. Great job, great place to stay, give yourselves a huge pat on the back.

People that work at the campground are amazing!!! They are absolutely devoted to making sure our camping experience is the best it can be every time we stay!

I enjoyed my stay. We have no kids that travel with us so we missed a lot of the fun. If this campground had an adults only spa, it would be perfect. The one in the pool area was full of kids so we did not use it.

Extremely family friendly campground, all of the staff were very nice and helpful.

The Santa Cruz/Monterey KOA is fantastic! The playground, jump pillow, climbing tree and more, kept the kids busy for hours. Unlike other KOA's this one allows pit bulls, which was a major safety concern with our kids.

The Kampground was very clean. We enjoyed using several of the amenities including the mini golf course and palm tree climb. My only concern was that we paid for a delux site and could barely fit our camper on the site with our truck. We hadn't used this camp before and will definitely ask for specific spots next time. We plan to return sometime....

This KOA very nice. It was quiet and the staff was polite and curteous. We'll definitely be staying here again.

We were having floors redone in Monterey and were thrown out of our home for a week LOL! Chose to stay at this campground for a new adventure. We had stayed there many years ago and love what is going on. The amenities have greatly improved, the campsites very nice, the store well stocked, and lots of choices of camping regardless of your equipment. The location is ideal to the Aptos/Santa are

I really appreciated the help of Duke and Mel with my trailer. Thank you!
Feb 05, 2014
only things I saw that were odd was the fencing around the back was old and broken down otherwise it was a great visit

We stayed at several KOA's on our trip and yours was the best of all. The staff was very kind and helpful. The grounds were clean and well maintained. We will be back and will recommend you to others. Thank you

We had a great time. Our grandkids really enjoyed the activities. We enjoyed walking around the kampground and our space was great for our 35' trailer. We loved the mix of cabins, Airstreams, and RVs. It felt more like a resort than a campground.

This KOA is one our top 10 favorite places on earth! Well managed, great friendly staff. We always feel at home here and can't wait to return.

we asked about television reception being poor. One of the staff came over and told us it was our problem not KOA. we went and bought 2 new cables. On our last day we found out no one had good reception at all. It would have been nice if we were told that at the beginning.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff is always so accomodating. Thank you so much for the mobile rv repair referral - it was a God send!
Jan 27, 2014
Everything was wonderful! The only criticism I have is during the week when the section we were in was empty every time a camper came they put them right next to us. Why was this necessary? The whole place was open. I understand that when it's busy, but not when it's wide open.
Jan 27, 2014
Your Koa is awesome we'll be back for sure!
