Campground Reviews

Jul 17, 2018
Great location, friendly staff, my one issue was the big rocks on the campground sites. I accidentally tripped over one, as did 2 other members of our group. I went down pretty hard, hit my forehead and sprained my shoulder as a caught myself. Made for a pretty sore weekend.

Restrooms are about 100 yards away. Water is not near. It’s a tent village.

We enjoy our coastano trips.the park and facilities are clean and well maintained. A very family friendly park.on this stay our neighbirs on both sides did not observe the 10 pm quiet time which kept us awake until after midnight. I wish koa employees would have enforced the quiet time rule.

Such a great campground. We loved everything about the grounds. For sure will be back - already have it rebooked! Thank you!

Visiting friends in the Bay Area. Traveling by motorcycle and tent. Very nice location, walking distance to the beach, if you dare walk across Rt 1. The Tent Park is kind of nice, especially for kids and groups of families vacationing together. A diner and wine tasting in Davenport, and close enough to Santa Cruz for a good visit. Not many shower stalls, but the rest is fine. 2 hrs from Oakland.

A delightful location with beautiful beach and mountain walks. The staff were wonderfully helpful and courteous. One tiny negative is the closeness of the RV pitches. We have spent 4 weeks touring California over about 20 different sites. The distance between RV pitches was by far the smallest of all the sites we visited; a shock to find our door opening on to the neighbour’s black water pipe.

Last minute stay. Very accommodating. Reservation staff friendly. Nice and clean! Loved the fact that someone security was always cruising the campground making sure everyone was taken care of and following camp rules like keeping dogs on their leash. Quiet, beautiful and peaceful. Loved the fact that there were so many vegan snacks at the camp store for my kids to choose from. Hope to return.

Beautiful, well maintained grounds. Spacious sites. Fabulous restaurant. Spa offers a variety of massages. Horseback riding trail brings you way up the hill for a view of the ocean. Lots of room for kids to ride bikes, etc. Dogs are welcome. If you are gathering with a group, there are areas for tent camping, heated tent type cabins, regular cabins and hotel room type accommodations.

The camp grounds had a beautiful view every way you turned. I wish there were a little more things for the kids to do but other than that we enjoyed our stay. Wish we would have stayed longer!

Enjoyed once again! Quite times enforced and appreciated. Enjoy the ocean views, with a very clean environment in the park. Great place for family and kids. We have 5 boys with 13 grandkids and can always count on the consistency of this KOA for fun and safety. You pay for what you get $$$ quality, safety, clean facilities, and space = good times!

Clean & spacious in Seascape village. More than I’m used to paying. My fault for booking without checking.

Sites are not maintained, also the site issued was for 35 ft fifth wheel, with slideouts and the trailer would not fit unless I hung over onto the grass area. Many site improvements are necessary before we return

Tent Camping Pros: clean restrooms, quiet environment, nice location, good general store, safe for kids, wifi! Cons: no camp fire pit at site, tying lines to hang dry clothes is prohibited, alot of skunks

Beautiful scenery, clean campground. We liked it very much!

Overall, the facility is well taken care of, however, I stayed in the "bring your own tent" area. There seemed to be no rules as far as quiet hours or number of people per site. there were fire works set off (just a few) after 10pm on a Monday evening. So if your intention is to have some peace and quiet in nature do not stay in this spot. It was an absolute circus.

We found your facility to be very overpriced for the amenities. Additional costs for all the kids activities, unfriendly rec staff, and yard games in poor condition made for a disappointing lack of options for the kids. The bathroom facilities were great and usually clean.

Nice stay along the cool coast. Very busy place and the trash cans should be emptied twice a day. Some of the rest rooms ran out of toilet paper.

We had a great time enjoying the beautiful KOA. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Oscar went out of his way to allow us to pet the goats and horses. This made my 2 year olds dreams come true. Thank you

They bent over backwards to help us.

The campgrounds & weather are beautiful and the area is so nice. However, we felt that as tent campers we sure got the short end of the stick. We were shoved in the back corner of the campgrounds (right next to the skunks home - the brush and trees). There were no camp fires allowed (but we did see other tent campers carry over fire pits from other camp sites and had a fire... hmmm)

Beautiful landscape friendly staff. Nice facilities. Bike rental way overpriced. 3 people for two hours 90 dollars. For the price of a nites stay. Only feel should have a pool and hot tub as part of the KOA. This is priced as a resort. Top end camp ground. For the record. I have been camping at commercial campgrounds for 35 years. I have plenty of income. Prefer staying the upper end campgrou

Bathroom showers could use some work. Don’t drain.

We love Costanoa KOA! We camp there at least twice a year and always have an amazing time. We have a travel trailer and the Seascape area is our favorite. The entire campground is beautiful, huge but very well maintained. The landscaping is amazing and the views are spectacular. The beach across the road is a huge plus, It's a hike but well worth it.

FUN FUN PLACE WILL DEFINITELY GO BACK AGAIN....

We had RV troubles and had to stay an extra day on a holiday, we know this put out the incoming campers but the park was so kind and helpful, they managed to get the campers at least into our RV section as they were camping with another family until we could get a repair man out the next day to get us on our way. Great folks at the KOA kiosk!

We enjoyed our stay very much. We enjoyed the Castanoa Restaurant, and ate all our dinners at the restaurant. We would like to see seperate fenced doggie play areas, and all your Dog Sites fenced. . We didnt take our Bassett’s to the furthest one after we found a tick on her. We only took them to the nearest one’s We would definitely come back with our Bassett’s or just me and my wife.

Glamping tent did not have a cozy feel for me so tried out a room in the lodge. So quiet with private area and porch! No TV. Grounds very nice to walk! Enjoyed my overnight stay!

Small camp site but great. Very clean and shower/bathroom is very clean too. Site is next to each other, great for group camping or several families/friends going together 15 mins walking to the beach. Family and kids friendly area, kids can ride bike around.
