Airstream Reviews

This was our first camping trip and I was very pleasantly surprised at how wonderful it was! We rented an airstream trailer and it was fully equipped with everything we needed. The kids loved all the activities and never wanted to leave the campground. The staff was amazing and always said 'hello.' We will definitely be back. Thanks!

Fantastic resort. The airstreamer was awesome. The only thing is your Santa Cruz website says there are 2 TV's in them and there are not but besides that, we will be back

It was our first time camping with two very young children and this KOA made it very stress-free and enjoyable. We rented a silver Airstream camper. It was in perfect condition, fully stocked inside and out with everything we could have needed. The staff was extremely welcoming, considerate and friendly. There was so much to do on-site and nearby. And everything was so clean!! We had a great time.

Kids a blast and were annoyed whenever we wanted to leave the campground. The trailer rental was clean, bathrooms on property were clean, staff was extremely friendly and the one glitch with the trailer was handled asap with a smile. I will definitely go again.

Best Spring Break we have had in a long time. The staff was great and very helpful. Very relaxing stay and it was a very nice location. We will be back.

Overall the staff and accommodations were great. The grounds were well maintained, but we had a gas grill with our site that did not get hot enough to cook on.

The airstreams are so fun! The staff was so helpful, they actually re-opened the grocery store for us!

We did have to report a very bad electrical problem that we noticed with the hookup on site 85, and when we called the office, the line was busy. There was no way to report an emergency situation about the park to the park--and it was very near the large number of children. We had to send one adult to go tell the office on foot and one to stand guard over the open and hot wires.

Had a fantastic stay in the airstream, it really is a great way of seeing if you like the trailer life. Also a great way to see if you like the lay out and requirements needed when you purchase one.

We stayed in an airstream and it was very clean and comfortable. Everyone was so friendly and we had a great time! My boys especially enjoyed the banana bike rentals.

I have to say the service was great and everyone was very helpful and nice. The facilities were great and our Airstream was immaculate. The only downside was our cable did not work and the wireless did not work, but it was probably best we paid attention to each other than the TV.

From morning 'til dusk, there are always great staff there to take care of you. On this visit, my friends and I stayed in an AirStream which added even more pleasure to the experience.

We were pleasantly surprised at how clean the site was kept. The Airstream stay was such a fun adventure. We have raved to our friends and we definitely return. Great location!

We have been staying at this KOA for over 25 years. It's always been a great place to stay and love seeing it evolve throughout the years. The staff is always very nice and the grounds are very well kept. We have stayed in campsites, cabins and an airstream and had a great time in all of them.

We love Santa Cruz KOA! Our only negative after MANY stays here was upon arrival following the tour of our reserved airstream our children said the bathroom smelled like vomit and on the last day of our stay 2/3 children got sick(both were vomiting)...might have been coincidence but definitely thought it was worth sharing. Clearly it did not change our rating either way...we LOVE staff/grounds!!

Lots to do at the campground and close to many other things to do. The personnel were very friendly and helpful.

We loved our stay in the Airstream. Everything about this place is friendly and inviting.

Great place to stay with kids. Close torn e beach. Banana bikes are the biggest hit with the kids. My one suggestion would be to fix some of the games in the arcade. Many of them do not work.

Family loved it! Super friendly staff and great location. We will be back!

This was our first time staying in an Airstream Trailer. It was really convenient compared to how we use to camp using a tent. The staff was friendly. The campgrounds were well kept. Pets were not allowed in the Airstream which I can understand but for some reason, the Airstream Trailer next to ours had a huge dog. Other than that, everything was a blast!!! We would definitely come again!!!

Stay was absolutely amazing, wonderful Halloween activities and so clean, safe, and the staff was exceptionally friendly:)

I recently stayed on October 18-20 for the Halloween weekend fun. I really like staying with you guys but I have to say I was really disappointed that there was so much alcohol consumption around children. At every decorated cabin it seemed like there was an alcohol station along with the trick or treating. I felt that was inappropriate. Also someone was throwing up behind my camper.

We stayed in an Airstream and really enjoyed our visit! The airstream was immaculate, so comfortable, everything worked well and the site was lovely. I've already recommended it to friends. Staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful, the bathrooms were great, the jumpy pillow a big hit and just generally really happy we found Santa Cruz KOA.

Love it! See you next year!

We had an amazing 1st trip at KOA/Santa Cruz site. It was our first stay in the Airstream. Everything was clean and tidy upon arrival. My only concern was the lack of supervision from the staff at the bouncy pillow and miniature golf area. We saw several kids "stealing" the golf clubs and then running through the course swinging recklessly wherever they went. Aside from that, we enjoyed our stay.

This was our very first "glamping" experience at all and we just totally fell in love with it. I loved the fact not to need bring shower gel, conditioner, dish washing soap, what a treat. We surely will be back soon! thanks for making this stay so lovely.

Great campground lots of activity the only downside was the no activity on Sunday morning before check out.
Sep 30, 2013
We had a great time. Excellent and friendly staff. We stayed at one of your airstreams, very nice and clean. We will definitely come back. Your campsite is the best. Keep up the excellent service you' re doing.
Sep 17, 2013
Staff was always friendly and accommodating. We've been there twice and would love to come back soon!
Sep 13, 2013
We had a very enjoyable time. We thought it would be too small in the airstream but it was fun!
Sep 13, 2013
We really liked trying out an airstream! Park is very clean and all staff very helpful. I think this park might be too busy for us during the summer season.
Sep 12, 2013
This was our first stay at a KOA. We had a very nice time. I felt that the campgrounds were very clean, well maintained, and well managed. Everyone we had dealings with we're very helpful and pleasant. We stayed in an Airstream and my only complaint is that many of the task lights and a few overhead lights were not working. Not much of a complaint I know, but it did make a difference at night.
Sep 09, 2013
Exceeding my expectations. We will definitely be back!

Spotlessly clean, friendly staff and great location.

overall had a great time and would consider returning. however, given the premium cost of the airstream, was disappointed that the bathroom was not as clean as it could be - mostly hair and door mat was filthy.
Aug 27, 2013
We had a great time in an airstream for couple nights. We'll definitely come again! Our kids loved the beach and pool. Lots of family fun and super clean!!!
Aug 26, 2013
The airstream was super! we had a great time. It was fun to have so much for our 2-year-old son to do and to have so many kids around!
