Although the Kampground was nearly empty, we really enjoyed our stay. The Kampground is clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. It is conveniently located with access to the Monterey Peninsula and Santa Cruz. We will definitely return.

Great place to camp. Clean and well maintained grounds and facilities. The only problem I had was with the young man who was staffing the kid zone. He was very unfair to the older kids and barely gave them any time on the floor trampoline. He verbally mistreated them with no reason to do so.

We had a great stay. The grounds are beautiful and the friendly staff made it a pleasure. We are planning on visiting again with our granddaughter, who would love all the children's amenities.

Relatively nice stay. Staff who managed the grounds were great. Front desk were not friendly, rather grumpy as a whole.

A little pricey but great for the kids! Campground had power shortages a lot!

As a KOA'er and environmental crusader, I'd like to see you incorporate composting, grey water use on greenery (biggest NorCal drought in history) and paper/cardboard recycling. Thanks again for a great stay.

In 40 years of camping we'd always chosen to go to state campgrounds or into the wilderness to camp. We'd thought of KOA as unfriendly concrete camping right next to other campers. We reserved a site as the state grounds were full but we really wanted to visit the beach! We were very pleasantly surprised by KOA! Our experience was great! We will be returning soon!

Everything was great. But the Internet doesn't work very well! You pay this much money a night it should work! Most expensive campground I have stayed in.

We enjoyed our stay. A friendly campground which was clean and quiet. The rate seemed a bit high compared to other campgrounds but it is California.

Very nice KOA camp. I have stayed at KOA camps my whole life and this is the nicest one I've been to. Rates were good, lotsa things to do and the staff was extremely friendly. I would highly recommend this place.. Oh, the beach is in walking distance!!! That was the best part of our stay.

The staff was extremely hospitible, even calling us hours before arrival to alert us to a power outage at the facility. The Kampgrounds are superbly maintained and landscaped and my wife really appreciated the stone pavers at our site. A real touch of CLASS!
