Tent Reviews

Beautiful park. Just wrong time for us to go there with a limb falling and putting a small tear in our tent, cool weather and family time with their special kids. Was loud in the mornings. Otherwise, an awesome KOA in the middle of Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay. Great for your family time!!

Clean, alot of showers, hot tub and internet worked well. Camping spots were a bit too close. We could hear the neighbor tent talking late into the night.

Our stay was amazing. We felt safe and comfortable and our toddler had the time of her life. The staff was friendly and we are already planning our next stay and planning a complete family vacation I'm excited to go again but next time stay longer than a day

we tent camped for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The campgrounds were clean, staff were friendly, activities were great fun. Can't wait to stay again!

Loved the staff and the amenities, but it felt like camping in a parking lot - especially space 149. They couldn't even put wood chips down over the dirt. Just dirt and a chopped down tree. Especially disappointing for the price. We may consider coming back, but would definitely stay in a cabin.

Everything was good except the tent camp sites were very, very small and w/o any privacy!

Poison Oak along the back of our Camp site had no warning that it was there. We understand you can't control it. But a wall or notice would be better.

We had a wonderful stay. We were assigned a small tent site at first but they quickly accommodated us and set us up in a bigger site with no questions asked. Everyone was very friendly and the camp ground was always kept clean. Very impressed.

The staff at this KOA are great! There was a tree fall on one night and we went without power and water for about 24 hours. In all this time the staff remained very friendly. There were a lot of guests that were not very pleasant and they remained upbeat and pleasant. I am a Hotel General Manager in Yosemite and I have been though natural disasters and keeping your spirits is not always easy.

I enjoyed the service thoroughly, unfortunately, the pictures online were rather deceiving. It wasn't very spacious, so there wasn't much privacy. It was a pain in the neck trying to leave with the amount of cars, and the lack of space, as well as all the screaming kids everywhere. I really appreciated the convenience of the office, and all they had to offer. However, it was just a bit too crowded

Very friendly staff. Clean bathrooms and campgrounds. The prices in their convenient store are reasonable. Just a few minutes walk to the beach.

Our 3 nights stay was so much fun! The kiddos had a blast with all the different activities and the staff were all helpful and friendly! We will definitely be back! The only comment/complaint we had was all the smoke inhalation we experienced from the campers next to our site bc they constantly had their fire on through out the weekend but I think KOA can't control that...
