We absolutely love it here. The staff and location are awesome. We camp here 3-6 times a year. However this was the first time I felt like other campers needed to pay more attention to their pets. Way too many dogs barking.

Awesome campsite, great for families. Lots of activities to keep kids busy & happy. Great staff, super friendly. Clean. Dog friendly. The only issue we had was with the Wi-Fi connection. We were in the back-in spaces towards the back outer (spaces 36 & 37) and it wouldn't connect at all.

Place was great !! The only thing lacking was a strong wifi ... It was a very weak connection

Very kid friendly. Close to the beach, about a 2 minute drive. Recommend it to anyone with children. Staff super friendly and helpful.

The staff and campground were amazing but the other campers were very loud. Music went to past 11:00 pm and two calls to security went to messages, so I'm not sure if they got them. A 10pm round to tell people to turn music off would be appreciated:)

A beautiful setting with clean and cozy sites. Great restrooms and showers. Grandkids had a ball.

This was our first time at your KOA. We loved it! It was very clean, extremely well maintained, staff were all knowledgeable and kind. We especially enjoyed meeting with PK, the general manager, who was from Traverse City, Michigan as we were. FD was very helpful. Thank you all so much for an incredible experience!

A great campsite with SUPER helpful and friendly staff! I want to say a special THANK YOU to FD (you know, like FDR), who was very generous with his time, patience, and encouragement in helping me back into my campsite. I am still learning how to back up with my trailer and FD was a lifesaver and made the challenge fun! Thank you FD, you made my trip SO much more enjoyable! Thanks, Jen

stayed at this koa for more than 40 yrs and always enjoyed it. this time we got ourselves in a jam between a tree and our travel trailer. the staff came and helped us out . (especially FDR)/. He called the manager, the manager called another strong young fellow and they had to cut down a plum tree to get us out of the mess. what a wonderful staff and we love KOA's!!!!

The staff at the store was very helpful and friendly. The grounds were great and the park and blob were a big hit with my 3 year old.

Nice and clean facilities, in a quiet location close to Santa Cruz and Monterey.

We stayed for three nights and traveled the coast from Carmel to Santa Cruz and everywhere in between. The park's location is outstanding and the facilities are excellent. We appreciated the size of the sites that leave good space between each site.

We've stayed here a few times and love it. Plenty of activities for kids to do. Nice and quiet as well.....
Jan 26, 2015
I thought that it was a little pricey but there was alot of things for the kids to do. Over all we really enjoyed our stay.

The Santa Cruz Monterey KOA is one of the nicest,cleanest and by far most friendly places We have been to. Lots of amenities available along with clean showers and laundromat. The entire Staff was helpful and always had a smile on their face. The sites are kept clear and refreshed for the next rv. I felt very safe here. We will definitely be going back soon.

Beautiful park! Super friendly folks at check in and at the store. Wife forgot her coffee pot and while she cooked breakfast I went and got coffee for her. Folks in store were helpful and friendly. Wonderful park to come to and we will definitely be back! (just won't use the iphone gps!)

We had a wonderful 3 day stay at this KOA. The facilities were wonderful and the service at the check-in desk was fabulous. This KOA is within a short walk to Manresa beach (which we recommend!). Highly recommend!

Great friendly place... $75 is a little expensive on the pull thru deluxe spot, but with 15%discount military rate made it worth it...
