Love this KOA. Only suggestion would be to light the pathways to bathrooms & play area better.

Unforgettable!!!!

Always clean, always fun, this KOA is a bit more expensive than some others, but very nicely ran.

This is the most expensive campground I have ever stayed at & the WiFi wouldn't even work. I would consider this a destination for families with kids that aren't concerned with how much they have to spend.

FDR was a fantastic helper in getting us into our spot and teaching me how to park our trailer for the first time. Michael was very helpful with a booking misunderstanding. Overall a fantastic experience!

Other campers were very rude! Adults and children alike were going right thru our site at all hours of the day and night-very rude and inconsiderate! Alot of the items listed are not available like they were and the online site did not say so either! Not good!

I stay at the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay KOA about one or two times each quarter. I always enjoy every day I am there. The entire facility is great and the staff is absolutely superb. The one who stands out as a bright light is FD. He always has such a great attitude and is willing to go the extra mile to make everyones visit a great experience. T Irby. U.S. Army retired

Loved this place!! Great for kids! The RV sites are well maintained and clean. Our friends stayed in a cabin and they loved it as well. The store is awesome as well, especially if you forgot get something.

Great location so close to Manresa and Sunset Beaches. We statyed with a large group on a busy weekend and the place never seemed overcrowed. The KOA staff keep it clean and there were friendly people all around. Great times at KOA as usual...

Fun and friendly family environment. Facilities are immaculate. We were able to enjoy a movie on the big screen as well as the pool, bouncy pillow, and ping pong.....all in the middle of November! We'll be back!

Hubby and I took our maiden voyage in our first trailer, so we went here to be safe. This KOA is very kid-oriented, but we were not bothered by all the kids there. We were in space 54, and it was very quiet back there. We took 2 lil dogs and happy it was very dog-friendly. Staff was professional, friendly and helpful, and the grounds were clean. Great place for easy "camping."

Cannot say enough how amazing the staff is. From the time we arrived until the time we left the staff would visit, and make sure we were completely satisfied. A very special "shout out" to F D. You made the difference sir. Ward Fsmily Hollister, CA

The staff for very friendly and helpful. It would have been better if our club would have been clustered rather than separated.

2nd time for koa & this one, we have been camping for over 40 years & never has anything been stolen, this weekend we had our sons & their family (2 sites & a cabin) a boys & a mens bike were stolen. I was very unhappy with how the staff handled it. Very unhappy!!! Dorothy Smith

We love staying at your KOA and always have a great time. The only thing that I wish was different is the checkout time. I wish checkout was 12:00 instead of 11:00.

The team that works at this KOA is absolutely amazing, from picking up trash to cleaning they are all so incredibly helpful. Great job on the new reservation system for the Halloween Weekends.

Been coming to this site for years on Halloween and it is normally 5-star because they let people have fun and stay up late listening to music and what not. This year the theme seemed to be to regulate everything with the "security patrol" going campsite to campsite to harass people. The campsite was a ghost town by 10pm and numerous people we talked to said previous years were better.
