We loved this campground and our campsite was perfect, we will be back for sure!
Apr 05, 2015
Great stay,only problem was no water & electric (water one day,electric two mornings).People who work at KOA were very help full,we will come back.
Apr 05, 2015
The stay was pleasant, as always, but this time intermittent loss of power and water, hours at a time, at the most inopportune times was annoying.
Apr 05, 2015
Our second time staying here and yet another first class experience! Well done!
Apr 05, 2015
Our first time at this campground. We had a great time, the grounds were super clean and our site was just right. We will definately stay here again
Apr 05, 2015
We were without power for 5 hours and water for about 10 hours. KOA did nothing to notify of problem and did not even offer partial refund or discount. It should have.

Really enjoyed our stay. Thanks for not putting us next to the jumping pillow as it was pretty noisy ALL day and we could still hear the kids where we were at. Showers could use some work (better cleaning and larger, too small to shower with young kids/grand-kids). Toilets, especially sides and rear appear to never be cleaned and floors in stalls were almost always messy. Very helpful employees.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean campground and lots to do for the kids.

We have been there several times and our last visit was HORRIBLE!!! Had no water for an entire day and were unable to shower, so our plans for the day had to be cancelled. No electricity on same day for several hours. We ordered wood on two different occassions in the morning and waited all day to have it delivered! So disappointing as this was our favorite place to go...

This place is amazing! The Kids had a great time and the best part is that they play so hard quite time is actually quite. The staff is great, they go above and beyond to help. The facilities are very clean and maintained. We can't wait to come back!

The camp ground was clean, had great facilities and all staff were incredibly friendly, welcoming and helpful. We loved our stay here and will definitely be back!

Had a great time. Brought my great-granddaughter (her first time camping) and she loved all the activities at this KOA.
Apr 04, 2015
All the staff was extremely friendly and helpful...at desk, around the grounds, etc. pool was too crowded to use, it would be nice if there was at least a separate jacuzzi for adults. There was about 16 kids in the jacuzzi.

Best KOA we've been to. Almost Disney like attention to cleanliness and friendly staff. This is a well run facility

Great for kids with lots of activities and close to beach. WIFI didn't work and should not be advertised as available. Water was off the last full day of our stay.
Apr 03, 2015
Fantastic campground for our family with 3 y/o and 11 month girls.Had a tough break losing water our last full day, due to pump failure at camp ground. But the staff was more than helpful. Everything else was great. Liked it so much we booked for five nights in summer as we left.

The campground the was great and clean. The only suggestion would be to have stronger wifi. The wifi was hit and miss and didn't always work.
Apr 03, 2015
Great stay. Very friendly staff and clean facility. Lots of kid activities on site.
Apr 03, 2015
Best Koa we have ever been in.
Apr 03, 2015
All were very kind the grounds very clean il be back.

For those with kids, KOA is a great place to stay. For empty nesters like us, not so much. Too many kids & too much noise make relaxing difficult. We loved the hot tub when not full of kids & went right at 9 am to have quiet &exercise. It would be nice to open pool & hot tub earlier (8:30 am maybe?) so older folks like us could enjoy it more before all the kids begin to show up around 9:30 or 10

great for family camping!
Apr 02, 2015
Small spots and not really "camping" but with 2 small kids (1 and 4 years old) it was one of the best vacations we've had. What a great family experience! The staff was excellent and the location was great.
Apr 02, 2015
We always have such a great time here!! Location is great, staff is great and the amenities are wonderful!
Apr 02, 2015

Convenience of having Wood delivered, ice delivered, the store on site, access to pool And spa, garbage pickup, gray dumps onsite. VERY kid Friendly!

Stayed this past weekend and could not of asked for a more enjoyable experience. from registration to departure the KOA staff were pleasant and were available to address any concerns we had. Great place to bring children as they have lots of activities. Enjoyed the Smore Night. This place has everything to keep children occupied from bounce pillow to playgrounds and a heated pool.

It seemed my site was a public site. Children of all ages and even parents would walk through my site to go to the jumper starting from 8 AM till 9 PM. We had no privacy and KOA did nothing to help on this issue. I paid for for this site, just like other did.. I don't walk thru their site. Guess it was the location of the site and KOA should have done something to prevent this.

great location, friendly staff, lots of activities for kids and very clean

It was like staying at a resort. We had so much fun! The staff are all so friendly.
Mar 31, 2015
Absolutely wonderful campground!
Mar 31, 2015
Perhaps some notices about our water situation should be posted; especially in the shower and restroom areas. Oh! And perhaps a reminder about wildlife? I forgot about raccoons being around. ...and they are BIG suckers!
Mar 31, 2015
Our first KOA trip ever was most awesome, it definitely won't be our last.
Mar 31, 2015
Nice place to stay. Clean, lots of dogs & children but quiet and well behaved-no loud drinking party people. Staff extremely helpful. Great campground for families with young children.
Mar 30, 2015
As always great time at the KOA in Watsonville. Visited before and will visit again!
Mar 30, 2015
We had a great time. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Plenty of activities to keep the kids entertained and less than a mile to the beach.

Best KOA ever!! Giant bouncy pillow, train rides, tree/rock climbing, mini golf, heated pool and hot tub, wonderful family place to camp. Even a dog walk and grooming station! Fantastic...can't wait to return. Kids had a ball and so did we!

Friendly staff, well maintained kids areas, clean park. A blast for the kids! Close to the beach. But the little ones didn't want to go anywhere else they were having so much fun at the KOA! Would love to return someday. Our first KOA. Thanks!
