We enjoyed our stay at the Santa Cruz KOA. The staff was friendly when we checked in & helpful getting us into our RV spot. There was a lot of things for kids to do & the facilities were clean.

Very peaceful family campground... all the kids must bounce on the huge bounce pillow and wear themselves out. Private sites, quick trash pick up, and hot showers, quick ice and firewood delivery. We will be back!

It was our last night in the US before delivering our RV back to the rental company. Therefore we had less time to discover the campsite and facilities. We had good impressions. Easy finding, good directions. Nevertheless the pricing level of the campsite is very high.

Staff very friendly, our site was large and plenty of room so we did not feel right on top of other campers. We stayed for the Garlic Fest and location was close to every thing we wanted to see and do, Monterey, Carmel, Beaches.

The only thing I see that could be better is the direction to you camp site.

Such a great place for a family with young kids. Only downfall was that the campfire and movie nights are only on Fri & Sat's and we camped Sun-Thurs.

No 30 amp power which would be expected at the price we paid. Too much hounding to purchase membership card. Too many people!

Control the persons limit in the hot spa. It was over loaded most of the time. And maybe not allow children under 12. Everything else was great!

Had a wonderful time. Just want to let you know that we met 2 fanilies that came in to use the park and did not pay. They are locals and live close by. We had family that visited us and they had to pay to come in. If the rules are in place then there should be a way to make sure that everyone has to follow them. Those families come in often on the weekends is what they told us to use the park

The kids love this campground. There is so much for them to do there. The campground itself isn't like being in nature, but a 5 minute car ride to the beach or a 10 minute car ride to the forest can be.

Overall we liked the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay KOA. There were fun things for our kids to do, and we liked the location of the camp ground. Bathrooms and showers were clean and well kept. We did not like the cost of the sites and the fact that our water/electric site was just dirt with no cement, gravel, or grass.

A wonderful camp experience !! Will return soon as we can.. Perfect for kids of all ages and located nicely between Monterey and Santa Cruz... A must stay place for happy campers... Thank you

I tagged this KOA as a favorite in my KOA App. Loved my experience this weekend. The crew was nice and extremely helpful. The only thing I would reccommend would be a monitor for the jumpy. I liked the convience to jump on it anytime however, there were some teenagers and adults that didnt respect the toddlers on the jumpy. It would have been nice to allow the little kids to jump alone

It is a very nice place to stay. My family loved it and the staff is very friendly.

Love this KOA normally. All the staff are great, the place is clean and lots to do. This time however we got an awfull site, on an end and also on a curve of the road. The spot is way too small! We were disapointed in it to say the least. Cars coming around the curve often cut the corner to make room for another vehicle, and drove onto the site.

Every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful. The grounds were clean and well kept. We all had a great time!!

This KOA is over priced for people over fifty we're stayed in four other Lisa's in the last thirty days and not one was over fifty five dollars.

Best campground visited ! Only remark, internetaccess should be improved

We love all of the activities and such at this KOA. This was the first time that I was disappointed in the RV site we had. It was not wide enough for the slides and then the only place that the picnic table could be was right next to the sewer connection for the space next door. Don't stay in space 87 if you have slides.....

Clean. Campsites too close together.

Great location, lots to do for the kids, great beach zone. Pretty pricey though to stay more than 2 nights and WiFi exists, but way too limited and not reliable.
Aug 02, 2014
We really like staying at this KOA but PLEASE do something to upgrade the WIFI. I was unable to even download my emails.
Aug 02, 2014
Great facility, superb staff. There were so many things for the kids to do.
Aug 02, 2014
Really like the activities for children and all your staff was kind and helpful. We will definitely be back.
Aug 02, 2014
All Staff very friendly + helpful. Even w/close proximity to Santa Cruz, Monterey, etc this was 'rest+relax trip' We only left our Trailer to eat dinner at Gayle's in Capitola once! The other 3 days/evenings we enjoyed the relaxation at the campground! We'll ALWAYS stay at KOA Santa Cruz when visiting that area +told friends,too! Thank u for your hospitality.

It was our first time staying at a KOA. We were very happy and our kids had a blast. We will definitely come back again.
