Overall, very clean & kid friendly. Bathroom stalls in restroom by the playground are so small you have to walk in & straddle the toilet to close the door. The internet is soooo slow, it might as well be turned off as it is useless.

Very nice Very clean.

We loved staying there and will be back this summer

Site was nice, location decent, staff extremely friendly and helpful - while the site is very kid friendly, that is not our thing.

We had a great time. The facilities are well maintained, great showers, and friendly staff. We will be back!

The facilites and ameneties were great. Good WiFi very everywhere in the campgound much appreciated. Few negatives, but here's a few. Need a cross-reference list for cable channel numbers to nework or over the air channel numbers, need to sell a local newspaper,many guests did not pick up after their animals and camp staff didn't pick it up also. Bullying on the jumping by big kid chased others

My husband and I wanted a couple of days at the beach. We had a restful stay and were close enough to go to Santa Cruz and Half Moon Bay for lunch :)

We are from Massachusetts and visit our Son & family in Santa Cruz frequently. Until our stay at this KOA we almost gave up on finding a good RV Park in The Santa Cruz area. Hallelujah....this park is THE BEST! Friendly is an understatement, clean, spacious and lots of family (kid) activities, more than I've seen in any other RV park. You will never be bored in The Santa Cruz/Monterey RV Park

Very nice park. Park live in employees a little loud with their motorcycle.

Position of sewer drain a little to high. Otherwise thoroughly enjoyed out stay. Glad pool was up and running last year there was a problem with bacteria and they closed it our whole stay. we have recommended this KOA to others over the years and just gave your brochure to a fellow employee this morning!

This is our 2nd visit and we really enjoyed it. You had a lot to offer. The only thing we did not care for, was the mini golf course. Each hole had a huge rock or shell on it which I think was completely unnecessary. Otherwise, we had a great time and the staff was wonderful.

SUPER!!! Helpful staff, very clean, extra great for kids!! We are now VERY spoiled!!! Thanks Chris, Luanne and F.D.

We enjoyed our stay there and will definitely be back. The grounds and sites were well maintained and the staff were friendly and helpful. Although it appears to be an ideal campground for families with children, it is a large campground with plenty of spaces away from the awesome play area.

From my first contact with KOA, it was Ashley, great customer service even remembered my name and the phone call we had a week earlier about my special needs. We were welcomed and treated just like family. From guest services, FD, Ryan, Billy they walked us through the procedure of hooking up all our utilities, (it was our first time with a motor home camping). It was a very positive experience.

Excellent amenities. Caring Staff. A can't miss destination.

Nice place,great employees. The only negative is not all the showers are working properly, some give you only lukewarm water. They raised the monthly stay from 1000 to 1200 a month. I would of stayed longer if not for the rate hike.

The wifi coverage is horrible. I have heard this from many friends and expirianced it myself this past weekend. For the price of the stay and the increase in technology used today, this system MUST be upgraded. Please place more routers or boost throughout the camp.

Always a lot of fun and the staff is great!!!
Feb 19, 2015
The staff is very friendly, informative and organized. The sites and bathrooms are clean and spacious. We loved our experience so much, we've booked our next weekend there and made it our home base!

It was a good time with family and friends at our annual long weekend get away.

Enjoyed our stay as always. Been enjoying camping there for over 30years. It is a great family place.

We love that the campground is so well kept up and still full of "nature". Everyone was so friendly and helpful. "We'll be back." :-)
Feb 19, 2015
WE loved it but it did have many hidden fees which greatly increased the cost

It was all good accept the Internet
Feb 18, 2015
We absolutely love it here. The staff and location are awesome. We camp here 3-6 times a year. However this was the first time I felt like other campers needed to pay more attention to their pets. Way too many dogs barking.

friendly staff, and very clean.

Awesome campsite, great for families. Lots of activities to keep kids busy & happy. Great staff, super friendly. Clean. Dog friendly. The only issue we had was with the Wi-Fi connection. We were in the back-in spaces towards the back outer (spaces 36 & 37) and it wouldn't connect at all.
Feb 17, 2015
Place was great !! The only thing lacking was a strong wifi ... It was a very weak connection
Feb 17, 2015
Very kid friendly. Close to the beach, about a 2 minute drive. Recommend it to anyone with children. Staff super friendly and helpful.
Feb 16, 2015
The staff and campground were amazing but the other campers were very loud. Music went to past 11:00 pm and two calls to security went to messages, so I'm not sure if they got them. A 10pm round to tell people to turn music off would be appreciated:)
Feb 16, 2015
A beautiful setting with clean and cozy sites. Great restrooms and showers. Grandkids had a ball.

This was our first time at your KOA. We loved it! It was very clean, extremely well maintained, staff were all knowledgeable and kind. We especially enjoyed meeting with PK, the general manager, who was from Traverse City, Michigan as we were. FD was very helpful. Thank you all so much for an incredible experience!
Feb 10, 2015
The campground is everything the pictures imply! It is very clean and kid friendly! The staff is very helpful and courteous! We had a great time here. There is always an activity to be doing. I would definitely recommend this KOA to everyone!

A great campsite with SUPER helpful and friendly staff! I want to say a special THANK YOU to FD (you know, like FDR), who was very generous with his time, patience, and encouragement in helping me back into my campsite. I am still learning how to back up with my trailer and FD was a lifesaver and made the challenge fun! Thank you FD, you made my trip SO much more enjoyable! Thanks, Jen
