As it is the price is set high on a nightly charge, then they top on an extra $2.00 for a resort fee. This has gotten out of hand.

We enjoyed our stay at the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay KOA. It's clean, friendly staff and great location. It's central to the Monterey Bay Area. The kids loved the playground, jumpy pillow, miniature golf and pool. We'll definitely be back!

Our stay was good after we complained that the first site we had was too small, and not level. We were moved to another much better site, and we were quite happy there. The sites are close together, so you have to hope your neighbour is good. You should enforce the dogs on leash policy better.

Halloween weekend is always a blast. Staff is always friendly, fun and helpful. We were disappointed the Haunted House closed down early. It was supposed to be open until 9:30 p.m. but several of us went down at 9:10 because there was such a long line earlier, but it was closed. So get there early!

We enjoyed our stay so much that we made a reservation for next year before we left. Can't wait for our next trip to KOA Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay.

KOA santa cruz is a fun place and nice staff. The only change I would request is the registration system. For such a special halloween weekend, it should NOT be so painful to register nor inconsistent. We've been going for the last 9 years... would like to continue. Please improve the registration process and open it up at the beginning of the year like you did in previous years. THANKS

Wish they had toddler hours/time for the Bounce pillow....when. Bigger kids get on there, I do not feel safe having my under 6 year olds out there.

Halloween one is another one for the record books. Everyone had so much fun. Thanks

This is the second year someone has taken my site from me by not allowi g me to renew my annual weekend trip when I check in. Most every customer had this experience and feel they have been screwed by koa. Some come 8 years in a row to lose there site and be split up from family by not allowing a first right of renewal when you check and let poucher campers take there site. Ur bad descion

The Campground was wonderful, the grounds and sites were nice and clean, the staff was great, friendly and helpful and they even pick up your trash when left at the campsite edge! To note it is like 27 miles to Monterey.

Campgrounds very clean and kid friendly. Staff extremely nice and bend over backwards to make sure your experience is the best. My only beef would be that it should not be KOA Santa Cruz, that's a stretch.

We appreciated our stay very much. It is a wonderful site.
Oct 16, 2013
We've stayed here about 4 times and have enjoyed each stay. We've stayed with a "full house" and with minimal campers. Good service and location. I will say that we are not kid oriented these days, so we might try something else next time. But Santa Cruz KOA is reliable, friendly and pleasant.

We travelled from montana for a mini family reunion - the other families coming from Bay Area n Monterey bay. Wonderful loacation for all family members, young and old. We want to do it again.

We really enjoyed our stay! There are lots of fun things for kids of all ages! Everyone was friendly and the place was very clean and beautiful! Thank you for a great time!

Good if you have kids otherwise just ok. To early a checkout and to late a check in. Sites could have more trees and less gravel.
