Great campground and staff.

We stayed in an Airstream for the first time and really enjoyed it. Its a quick trip for us since we live in Morgan Hill, but it feels like its world's away. Next time we would like to stay in a deluxe cabin...for a different experience. Bathrooms are clean, staff is nice and super friendly. Even though my reservations have been screwed up several times, the staff was able to be friendly!

We normally have a flawless stay at the Santa Cruz/Monterey KOA. This trip was spoiled by an incident on our 4th night (out of a 6 night stay). We were approached in the middle of dinner and asked to leave our RV site because another party had arrived and had booked the same site. We had to prove, using our receipt from check-in, that we had paid for the full week. It was very upsetting.

Place was VERY expensive and no easy access to the beach. Campgrounds were clean and staff friendly. Felt safe with the night crew!

We invited a few families to join us. Not sure who had more fun, the adults or the children! Such a clean & beautiful setting.

This is a wonderful family camopground. Lots of kid activites. Only issue I had was I notified the office that the facuet for the dog wash was broken and five days later it still had not been fixed. I really needed the dog wash since I took my dog tot he beach everyday,

Not a great site for a 40' MH. Lots of wind. Got 30A when asked for 50A etc. Tree took power & water out but KOA crew (David & others) did a great job of keeping folks happy. Yes we will return but only with a better site, bigger w/50A & easier to get into. Thanks again. Gary Neal

Our grandkids had an absolute ball!! They were busy all the time. The staff was outstanding as usual!!

The grounds were great. The day we arrived around 8:30pm. The power went out until 2:00pm the next day. The bad thing was we had no water.
Apr 27, 2014
We are wondering if there will be any compensation for the night and day the electricity was out? This created major inconvenience, disrupting our vacation. :(

This campground is awesome! We rented a 30' RV from Cruise America, plugged it in and had a great time! Our kids loved the jumpy pillow, banana bikes, climbing palm trees, miniature golf, huge playground, pool and hot tub. The staff rides around on golf carts helping with your every need - delivering wood, picking up your trash bags and answering every question. This is a 5 star experience!

This was our first time staying at a KOA ever and we would definitely come back. There was an issue with the power and the water but we were given free firewood and the kids got to ride the bikes for free all day. To me that was good customer service!!! This trip was all about our 3 kids and they had a blast and to us that's what matters most! Thank you!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟ӽ

Our experience was exceptional. We love how clean the park is and how friendly everyone on the staff are. We will be back soon to visit.

We were without water and electricity because of a power pole was down..
Apr 26, 2014
A tree feel and took out the power, so no power and no water. What an amazing effort the crew put out (buckets of water from to the bathrooms. It was an awesome stay and we love this KOA. THANKS FOR YOUR AMAZING EFFORT!!!!!! see you soon. Great to get to know the staff Ashley, Kevin and others. A+++++

Very friendly. Registration was a breeze. Had a lot of activities whether young or old. Highly recommend. Will stay again in the future.

We had a wonderful time, the kids didn't want to go home! Next time, we will avoid spring break, however. Just a little too crowded for our liking.

We use to camp here many years ago when the kids were small, returning after all these years, same campground, newer playground equipment and more fun amenities.

This particular KOA was beautiful and offered so much! Not only did it have numerous things for young kids to do, but older ones as well. My 6, 12, and 14 year old loved it! I addition, the staff was amazing! Friendly, helpful and accommodating in every way. They even had fun, special events scheduled, being it was Easter weekend. We will definitely be going back here! :-)

it was my first time at a KOA. I could never get on the wi-fi, they shouldn't advertise they have it and the cable was snowy but i was surprised cable was even available so didn't mind. the shower was clean and the grounds were very nice. just a super busy week with spring break! i'll go back when it's quieter and relax. everyone was friendly and helpful.
