NOT geared toward tent camping but if you have a kids and a motorhome/RV/trailer, it is great!

The staff is extremely friendly! A very well organized KOA, with many extra features! This is our FIRST choice in the KOA family. A MUST stay experience!!!

The kids had a great time. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay. There is so much to do at the camp that you don't really have to leave.

I already have recommended it to my grown kids.

We paid for a premium space & got put in a very small space & the campground was not even full. There were large sites next to us & across from us. The picture on your website of the spaces we selected were not even close to being as spacious as the pics on your site showed. This was our very first time at a KOA - you'd think they'd try a bit more to please new clients.

Great KOA, very clean, friendly and helpful staff. Only negative is location of TV cable connector under the box. Side mounted would have been more user friendly so you don't have to stand on your head. Otherwise, our stay was great!

Excellent camp ground. The kids loved it and so did we. Very clean and friendly staff. The heated pool was cool and the showers were nice and hot. Will come again

For the high price we had to pay we did not feel the site was good. It was a 30 amp back in site in which the amps were weak. We could not access the Wi-Fi and the attendent sent us in backwards causing us to almost Jack-knife the unit to get in the spot.

This park was absolutely beautiful and huge. This is perfect for children with so many things to do and the planned activities. We would love to bring our grandchildren here but living in Washington state would be quite a trip for them. It's a 5 star KOA

Great location, well kept grounds, staff very helpful and friendly, pull through sites have BBQs, table and chairs, swing and a fire pit and are long enough to park your rig and vehicle. WiFi needs improvement and very little AT&T service.

This was our 2nd visit at this location and again it was great. The only thing we were dissapointed in was the Coconut Tree Climb was not open. One of the reasons we loved this location was all the kid activities you provide and just feel they should be available at least once a day (if kids are requesting it). Other than that, we truly enjoyed our stay and will return.

Nice and friendly! I was making a quick weekend of it as I was simply trying to learn all the features of my new fifth wheel. Everything worked smooth, was clean and staff all super helpful. Thanks KOA

Beautiful KOA. Possibly the nicest one I've stayed at. Within 15 minutes of Santa Cruz and Capitola and 1/2 hour on Monterey. Great for small children and adults alike.

I love the surroundings, the kids, the employees were very nice and everyone seemed to be truly enjoying themselves! That is why I am coming back in a couple of weeks with more RV'ers!

Clean campground, very nice employees, restrooms were clean. We had a great time and will be back
Feb 26, 2014
Friendly, Clean, FUN! Appreciated the delivery of the fire-wood and Ice! Loved the jumper! Local SC attractions and beaches so close! Looking forward to our next trip!
Feb 26, 2014
Amazing location. Weather was fantastic. Everyone was so friendly. We'll definately be back. Thanks for a great time.
Feb 26, 2014
excellent, friendly staff. Only issue we had with our stay was the lack of internet service, hit and miss, mostly miss.
Feb 25, 2014
i was a little disappointed. first they call on Saturday that the pool is not working. Then we get there and there is no mention tha ton Saturday the train is working and the tree climbing is also not available on Sundays. Heads up would be good, my kids were disappointed.
Feb 24, 2014
We always love our stays at this KOA. Great staff. Very helpful and the campground is always spotless. My in laws stayed in a cabin and loved it. Very cute inside with all the conveniences of home. We were happy campers :)
Feb 24, 2014
Great stay as usual, The new improvements are wonderful!!! Great job KOA Santa Cruz. The kids can hardly wait to go back.

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.
Feb 24, 2014
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.
