The sewer dump connection was to high, I had to raise my dump hose several times to get all my tanks empty. The fact that the front desk didn't know what they were doing and in the middle of dinner they requested my presence at the office because I was on my 2nd day, when I supposedly only paid for 1. Showing my receipt for 2 days paid, they said employee error, thank you, dinner is cold.

Our stay was awesome! Wonderful and helpful staff, safe, clean and we'll maintained campsites / RV sites. We look forward to visiting again soon!

We really enjoyed our stay with the kids. The only thing that I would suggest is to have more times for the train and the cocoanut tree. We never had the chance to try the tree. Also, the park is very nice I do like all the changes that have been made for the exception of the paths to the restrooms and the play area. I felt funny walking through other sites otherwise everything was great.

We really enjoyed our stay and was impressed how often our garbage was pick up by the road. Thank you.

We had a great time. Would have been nice if there were activities planned during our stay, but I guess things are different in the off season.

A lot of fun. Campsite was too hard to pitch the tent, so we had to order a cabin, which was costly and unanticipated. Campsites are way too small. Pool, kids activities, bike rentals were lots of fun. Fun place to camp

Our family had a great time. We had our 2 year old grandson in the cabin next door to our RV site. He enjoyed riding his trike and we were extremely careful while he was riding to watch for traffic. The only thing that I might suggest is that somehow speed rules of 5 mph be enforced. There was only about 4 ft from their bottom step to the street. Many cars moved way too fast. Will be back. Thanks

We often come to this KOA because it is so kid friendly! The staff is amazing and always goes above and beyond.

This was our first time staying in a KOA. I'm glad this was our first because everything about this campground impressed us. We camped with our four yr. grandson in our trailer. This is the perfect campground for children of all ages. There was so much to do. Our grandson played miniature golf for first time, and ping pong. He loved the giant jumping pillow, and riding his bike around the park

The staff was wonderful. The park is well maintained the only downside is that the sites are on the small side.

Our favorite campground!! Only concern is that the WiFi does not work at all sites. Office said "sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't"..It should work as advertised...especially for the premium rates charged.

Our church group had a fabulous time at the KOA. Lots of fun options for kids and adults of all ages. Giving a 4 star this time because the bathrooms weren't as clean as usual. It was a busy weekend but in the past I have seen more workers keeping up with the restrooms. At times seat covers were empty and sinks dirty. However garbage pick up from golf cart workers was great!

Great place to stay, especially if you have kids. The largest play structure I have ever scene and the bouncing pillow were awesome. Great emeneties, restrooms were large, clean and plenty of hot water. Also centrally located to Santa Cruz and Monterey. I will definitely be returning.

If you're looking for somewhere to stay and relax this is not the place. If you're looking for a place to keep the kids busy while the adults drink, party, and play loud music til 10pm at night, then this is for you.

All staff were polite and the camp was clean. FDR was especially helpful. He should be commended for his teamwork attitude and willingness to go the extram mile for customers

Great. Every thing you want here. Big sites and plenty of things to do. Our 2 small dogs loved the play parks. Well organized, very clean and the staff really friendly. Will go to this site again.

This is a wonderful park. Spaces are large and the area is beautiful. Would be a great place to bring kids.

I bought the two nights for my daughter, her husband, and their 3 year old. We've been to this park several times and will return again. Unfortunately, on this visit the 3 year old broke her leg on the Big Bouncer. We don't know what exactly happen. She had played on it several times before and will again in the future. This is a beautiful park with friendly staff members.

Restrooms not as clean as last time. Music not playing in bathrooms like they used to. The water was shut off without warning so people were trying to get out by the early 11:00AM check-out time and that made it impossible. Of course the water came back on about 15 minutes before checkout time. Advance notice of water shut offs would be appreciated next time.
Sep 17, 2013
Very helpful and friendly staff lots of things to do to occupy the grandkids had a great time we'll be back again this was our 4th time .

Your KOA was very nice & clean. The employees were all very friendly & helpful. I know we will be staying with you often in the future, because oh are only 7 miles from our daughter. Very convenient for us. Thank you for a nice stay.

This is my favorite KOA. We came without the kids this time and had a romantic weekend by the campfire. I can't wait to come back.

Very clean bathrooms, well maintained facility, and very friendly staff. Highly recommend!

It was a wonderful weekend. My four year old enjoyed the train ride, playground and campfire. We went to the nearby Manresa State Beach in the afternoon too. Overall a wonderful stay and will definitely go back. This is one of our favorite KOA's.
Sep 16, 2013
Once again had a blast. Our 10 year old son and friend had fun with Jumping pillow, mini golf (free was nice) banana bikes and climbing tree. Parent relaxed at site knowing kids are safe at Beach Zone. This KOA is pricey but the BOGO deal is always good.

Was a terrific place to stay.

We had a lot of fun. I'd like to see more recycling bins and if you could institute a composting program that would be great. We visit every few months. Thasnk
