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.

Absolutely wonderful campground!

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!

Our first KOA trip ever was most awesome, it definitely won't be our last.

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.

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!

We really loved this KOA. Everything was perfect except for the wifi. When it's late and we wanted to relax it would have been nice for the kids to be able get on their devices.
Mar 28, 2015
Better than expected! We had a lot of fun and our kids were constantly entertained!
Mar 28, 2015
This was the nicest place I have ever stayed. There are so many activities for the kids. Staff was super friendly. They will even pick up your trash from the camp site. It doesn't get better than this with camping. Between the train rides, bouncey pad, gigantic playground, coconut climbing wall, pool, ping pong and basketball you're hard pressed to find a better place to stay for the kids.

Mar 28, 2015
This place is amazing. The staff really care about the people and grounds, and it shows. Great place to bring kids of all ages. We will be back!

Staff was very friendly, facilities were clean and well run. Nice that they have a very well stocked store. Lots of activities for our three small kids.
Mar 26, 2015
We had our 3 grandchildren for 4 days and we all had a great time. the facilitites were clean and accessable to every age group. I would recommend having toilet bowl liners at the Beach area bathroom, and BTW the toilet has a water leak that needs attention. Other than that, I would rate this campground A+

My wife and I had the best time at your KOA and the staff is always the greatest. Thank you John and Georgia Dixon
Mar 25, 2015
very nice with plenty for the young ones
Mar 25, 2015
We have two little ones and we absolutely love this KOA. We've stayed at others and this one just fits us perfectly. This time we stayed at a back-in off the jumper/beach area and it was perfect as we could watch the kids while sitting at the campfire. Perfect!
Mar 25, 2015
Couldn't have been a better stay. Fantastic place for families with kids. Great amenities and value. Staff was super nice and helpful. My kids did not want to leave! We'll definitely be going there again.
Mar 24, 2015
VERY CLEAN AND EXTREMELY ATTENTIVE STAFF.
Mar 24, 2015
Very clean. Very pleasant and friendly staff. Definitely will be going back.
Mar 24, 2015
Great Time, clean and well maintained, will visit again soon.
Mar 24, 2015
The staff was always extremely friendly and willing to help. Camp site were clean and well maintained.
Mar 24, 2015
The only negative thing I have to say is that originally, the campsite I was assigned did not fit the description I was given over the phone when making the reservation. I went back to the office and they were able to move me to one that was closer to what I expected. The rest of the stay was great. Very clean, well kept, something for everyone. Lots of stuff for the kids and dogs.

The facility was great, but the staff fantastic. I manage a hotel in Northern California and would hire any one of them that I encountered to work our front desk (in a heartbeat). We look forward to staying here again and other KOA's in the system. Regards, Bob Everhart

This KOA was very nice. It was clean and the staff was kind. The only issue I had was being directed to the wrong space and after setting up completely I realized a staff member directed us to the incorrect space. I made contact with the office and was told I would need to move to the correct space. I did not have an issue with that but it would have been nice if they offered some assistance.
Mar 23, 2015
Great park, just to bad not all activities advertised were not happening. Considered at off season, but was school break and a weekend, place was packed. Also to many dogs, should have an area were dogs are allowed not whole park. There were dogs in the store, play area, bathrooms, poor dog owners, but the rest of us should not have to deal. Dogs all around us and they all barked at every walker.

The Santa Cruz KOA is Clean, Safe + Friendly! Another great feature is the Location. It's btwn Santa Cruz + Watsonville, making the KOA a perfect place to stay for 'day trips' to Two 'California Icons' - the Santa Cruz Boardwalk + the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The Staff are friendly + very child + pet friendly. Once you stay at Santa Cruz KOA - I promise it will be the first of many,lifelong memories

We love pets letting people in with 5 dogs is over the top. They never took them for a walk. So I'm glad we were not staying in that site when they left. Pee is urine and I don't want to picknik in it or walk in it. I

Good activities but 1 bathroom closed for reno. This should have been done in winter. There were 4 showers for each sex for almost 200 campsites. Ridiculous.
Mar 22, 2015
Excellent facility and amenities. Only way to make it better/easier upon arrival is signage/arrows to indicate which direction to campsite #'s
