Wonderful stay. Very clean campground. friendly, Very helpful staff. The staff far exceeded our expectations. I would like to give an individual mention to FD. When we arrived we realized that we forgot the key to our hitch lock at home and we could not disconnect our trailer from our truck. He went out of his way to help us solve this problem. A special thank you for turning a bad situation good.

Efficiently operated but the sites are too close together. Great place for families.

This was our first stay at any KOA, and it was awesome. From the time we pulled up to the front gate to the time we left and everything in between the customer service was great.

Cabins and park air stream campers are almost as common as RV's. Kid chaos was common when we arrived and left. The campground is more suited for younger clients. It is a well maintained facility.

The tent sites are WAY too close to one another. Once we moved sites to the RV sites it was better. I will never stay in the tent sites there again. Worst nights sleep I have ever had.

Wonderful campground. Would love to see some updates to the kids recreation center. The old arcade games are funky. The ping pong table equipment needs updating.

Had a very enjoyable stay. No issues - facilities were good. Just wish it was a little easier to get from there to either Monterey or Santa Cruz without having to take the RV.

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.

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.

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!!
