Airstream Reviews

The staff at KOA Santa Cruz are super helpful and extremely nice. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay and plan on coming back next year. The only thing I would maybe recommend would be the prices to rent a cabin or airstream they seem a bit high considering the KOA is located in Watsonville vs. Santa Cruz or Monterey Bay. Thank you!

Great stay. We stayed in the Airstreams and loved it. Our kids had plenty to do and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Reservations were canceled before we could stay Due to poor management.

Loved it.

Awesome site and great workers. Would love to have trash can around our site as the trash bin in our airstream unit is abit small. Please extend the wifi reception as the area near airstream units does not have reception 98% per our stay. Larger pool would be greatful as the pool was pack when we where there.


Thanks for staying with us! We have the best wi-fi system available in our area, it will slow down with hi-demand. Thanks for noticing our new pool and all our the guests enjoying it. There is a larger pool at Manresa Beach.....It provides plenty of space to swim.

Concern about young children riding low bikes on same road as vehicles. Camper area seems too crowded. Showers could work better. On plus side, cabin was very clean, good supply of toiletries. Had a great time in our family reunion. Staff very pleasant.

We enjoyed staying in one of the airstream trailers! The site and campground were very clean and well maintained. Plenty of activities to keep the kids busy and happy. We will definitely stay again!

The pool was not close to being open. The did give some discount but very disappointing. Advance warning would have been nice.

Our stay was perfect! Kid-friendly environment, they could runoff and play without parents having to worry. Lots of activities for the kids and relaxing time for adults. We will be back this year for sure!

Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Very clean campground. The prices were a bit high and since the pool was not open due to construction it would have been good business to lower the rates rather than raise them. We had a large group of 70 who meet and camp once a year together. Due to the high prices we will probably choose a different campground next year.

Most excellent vacation for our family. Everyone got something out of it whether it was peace and quiet, relaxation or a bunch of running and playing for the younger legs in the family. Next time we will bring our dog and let him in on the fun. Thank you so much for the facility and keep up the good work!

The staff is amazingly friendly and helpful. We loved our stay.

This was the 2nd time we stayed in the air stream, and both time had hot water issues. This time was even worse, 3 maintenance guys came but still can't fix the problem. We definitely won't recommend anyone to stay in the air streams.

My kids love coming here. They stay busy and we feel safe letting them ride around by themselves. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We actually get to relax too. Love this place

We had a lovely weekend in our airstream. There was a lot on site to entertain our daughter, plus the location is a perfect proximity to beautiful beaches.

The KOA was great, except our last night about 1 am, the propane ran out! It was very cold. Finally I found the small space heater in closet. That barely kept us warm. In the morning after some difficulty, we had propane delivered, a nearly empty tank that lasted for 5 minutes and died before we finished making breakfast. We had no hot water to wash up before leaving. Very disappointing!

Great facility and helpful staff. An outstanding value for anybody with kids. So much for them to do!

We had an issue with something that did not work. It took them 2 days to fix. I'm disappointmented with this visit.

This is my second visit to the site. The first time, I was quoted one price and overcharged when I checked in. The recent visit, same thing again! And we are talking about over a one hundred dollar difference! Every time I point this out, no one notifies the manager. They simply say "sorry, you must have gotten it wrong?!" That's ridiculous! Be prepared for them to overcharge!

Great staff that quickly helped with problems and wonderful setting. Better if Airstream A06 had central heat with thermostat rather than noisy electric heater and if cabin 212 had a real stove not just a microwave. Cabin 212 had rodents in walls that made noise at night...needs attention.The miniature golf need some upgrading and leveling so balls don't always roll to the edge.

It was very clean, had lots of activities for the kids. Staff was super helpful as well. We'll definitely be coming back!
