I was very disappointed the pool was under construction. I wish we were informed. We would have chosen a different park. Most of the staff was really nice. About half of the scheduled activities didn't happen. My kids really enjoyed the park and jumpers.

Great for kids not so much for seniors

The campground was pretty cool for kids. There were tons of employees keeping the grounds looking nice. Some of the older employees were kind of cranky but other than that it was fun.

I would only recommend this KOA to families with children. Without children, way over priced!

Thanks for staying with us! We are a super family friendly park with so many things to do for everyone. The beach is a short walk and Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay are short drives, hard to not have a great time here.

We had a very positive experience for our first time in an RV (for 5 months). The staff is very pleasant and helpful, especially Sherri Stakaki.

I always give 5 starts. This time our campsite was met with dirt, rocks and debris. Empty propane tank. And we just don't understand how you can cut fireman discounts. They put less on the line than cops? Really? And is anything going to be done about the road by the tracks? It's awful. Excited about the pool!

Great place to stay. The kids zone activities are good and the spaces have good separation. The restrooms are clean, but the showers are in need of some new fixtures. The planned pool area looks great.

Great family park! Sites are adequate size even for our rig. Very clean. Pleasant and helpful staff at check in.

Impressive staff and events for kids. Just wish the cable and wifi worked better for the prices paid.

Great site with deck. Very close to the beach where we drove to take the dogs to play. Nice staff and well stocked store. Second time staying here and not the last!

This was our fourth or fifth time staying at your KOA, we love this place. it is ALWAYS clean and everybody is so friendly! we will be back!!!

The roads into, and out of the campground were too small for our 13' tall, 35' class A motorhome. The trees on the roads were too low and scratched our paint. I wouldn't come back here again because of that. For people with smaller units, this campground would be great. The campground would be fantastic for kids.

It was our first time at KOA and my four-year-old son's first camping trip in a VW Camper. He loved it! We hope to stay again with my wife next month. :)

Cell service is the only draw back. Great stay. Clean and quiet. Great store.

Thanks for staying with us! Unfortunately we cannot do anything about cell reception, that falls on the phone providers.

Fantastic campground! We're going out of our way to return as we had such a great experience. VERY clean park and incredibly friendly staff. Great amenities for the kids. Can't wait to return!

We had a great stay! We were there for 8 nights and were all sad to leave! There were so many fun activities for the kids each day! Everything was so clean and kept up- the camping spots, play areas, bathrooms, laundry mat etc! It was truly an awesome experience! We will definitely be coming back!
Apr 02, 2017
We really enjoyed our large camping site. Beautiful scenery, and I love how clean and well kept everything was. Just wonderful what they have done with the place. Airstreams to rent?? Beautiful cabins too. Very impressive. Little loud with all the kids, but what the "H" huh?

My family enjoyed our first time at your camp. Location was perfect. The camp was very clean. The bathrooms were kept clean and supplied at any time of the day. The staff was professional and friendly. We made reservations to return in the next few months. Thank you.

So much fun. We will definitely be back. The campsite was clean and had everything you could ask for

Stayed two nights. Friendly and really clean. Would stay again.

Awesome experience; like a Hilton campground with everything you need right there plus lot of activities for kids. 30 mins in either direction to Monterey or Santa Cruz and we love Manresa State Beach around the corner.

It would be really nice if everyone had the same rules. To many permanent residents. Wish they would provide local tv channels to keep up with weather and events in the area.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us! Santa Cruz KOA does not have permanent residents, we do have minimum number of monthly guests from November - April and the same rules apply to everyone. We do get all local stations.

Never been to a KOA. All the conveniences were fantastic. Only complaint was needed to hustle out on check out day because they needed to remove a large tree from our campsite. Would have liked to know ahead we had to leave early. Employees were very helpful, place was so clean!
Mar 27, 2017
This was our first stay in a KOA and we loved it, it rained during our stay and we still had a blast. Very satisfied 😁
Mar 27, 2017
Friendly welcoming people. We did not need or use any of the facilities so can notcomment on those.
Mar 26, 2017
All of the park employees were extremely friendly and helpful. The park is kept very clean and is in a beautiful area.
Mar 26, 2017
Very clean campground, friendly helpful staff, lotsa kids activities scheduled....
Mar 24, 2017
Nice place, good people, but expensive. With state parks closed due to severe rain damage, it was the only place in the area.
Mar 23, 2017
We had a great time! Very friendly staff and kid-friendly park.
Mar 23, 2017
Restrooms were very well kept!
Mar 23, 2017
Loved the campground 199t is a horrible site and should be turned into something besides a campsite. You can't even get your awning out and the picnic table has to be on the front of your camper.

Best people at this KOA!!! Can't wait to try out the new pool area!
Mar 21, 2017
Great park, especially for kids. Lots of fun activities for the little ones including a train that goes around the park. Clean facilities and friendly staff. We will definitely be going back soon.

THe charges for this resort is terrible. We were in site 47. Dirty fence falling down bushes not cut. Had not been raked all winter. Sat and watched the hired help run around on golf carts doing nothing else. We are not strangers to KOA in santa cruz. We have been there since 1984. The last night $100,spring break? the park was mostley empty when we left. Disapointed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us! Santa Cruz KOA is a beautiful park and exceptionally well maintained. Even after multiple storms have blown through the park causing extensive damage,the staff continue to work hard to clean up. We stay positive regardless of what mother nature throws at us.

The stay was great. But someone 3 sites over from me was playing there music loud after the noise curfew. It was very loud. I should have got up and complained.
