We had a great six night stay!

Our RV pad had buckled due to roots and created an unsafe landing area when we stepped out of our camper. We asked the staff to add some dirt or mulch to even out just the landing area. We tripped on it and thought it was a safety concern. The office said they would let the manager know. It would have been an easy fix but no one ever addressed it in the 5 days we were there. Disappointing.

Great staff, friendly and helpful, beautiful accomodations all around, fun activities for kids, music, food and ambience and the people that were there...it was all excellent and we have booked for next year already.

We Were very happy with the entire facility, and staff. We come there often, and really enjoy Costanoa.

The best campground we have ever stayed at! So many cool things to see and do at the campground itself.

Great location, amenities, numerous ways to stay. Very close to Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz. Although pull through sites are very tight and small for large rv's

Super nice, almost resort quality, and just a short walk to the beach. Great amenities with laundry available, showers, community fireplace, and picnic areas. We didn't realize that the tent sites didn't have firepits or trees, but it worked out fine.

Very friendly staff, always around, and helpful. My daughter enjoyed the playground and we enjoyed the games out in the grassy area. Campsites were clean and so were the bathrooms and showers. We enjoyed our stay and surely will return

An amazing vacation and view! (E32)The KOA is very well staffed with friendly people . The only feedback I would give is this... (This comment does not reflect the KOA, as much as it addresses inconsiderate campers) As we came into the KOA we we're reminded verbally as well as in writing) to have our black water airtight, yet our neighbor behind us did not do that. �Ͻ Luckily he left tha

Great camp ground, very clean, friendly staff. Lots to do at the camp ground and surrounding area. Your close to the ocean and the redwoods. Will be back. Loved it.

Campsite was clean and accessible, wish we would’ve been closer to the fire pits as it was inconvenient for cooking

The campground is well kept, there are plenty of comfort stations available, the campground is pretty centrally located for the various excursions that we wanted to go on. The campground was/is beautiful.

Loved it!! Stayed in S13, great views and got lucky with hearing a live band playing on stage there for a Birthday party. Place is clean, beautiful & friendly. Only reason didn’t give it a 10 was ticks! Found one in my trailer ��But we do plan to go back��

Enjoyed it very much. The only drawback was that our site, #31, was just too close the next site, #32. Next time we'll request a different site.

We wish we could take our dog on the trails.

Costanoa is fabulous! The grounds were clean, well kept, beautiful. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The amenities and activities were perfect and the location ideally situated between Santa Cruz (30 mins) and San Francisco (1 hour). The only deficiency was very poor WiFi. But, that was the least of what’s important. Definitely coming back!

The best KOA I've experienced. We used a tent site which was very basic but the showers and toilet were very clean and updated and even had a sauna which worked great! No fires at the tent site but a beautiful fireplace and seating area at the sauna/bath with free firewood included to use there. The general store was awesome and the restaurant was beyond expectation. Overall EXCEPTIONAL!

We enjoyed our family get together at Costanoa. We had 4 families, some camping, some in bungalows. The facilities were always clean and the campground gardens are very pretty. The sites are a bit close together which made noise a problem, particularly because we had small children there. Next time we will reserve sites and bungalows further away from the center of camp. We had a great time.

site C41 was too small for 3 pop outs so they moved us to C48 right next to the picnic area in which a Large Group had use of it Morning, Noon and Night until 10pm. In/Out of our campsite and fires so we couldn't open our windows due to the smoke. Would Not recommend that site...oh and then on Saturday night a live band directly across the street. Not for relaxation for us. Would have preferred th

Wish the sun was out but the staff was amazing, so much to do with trails and all the events. Staff was always there to help and each site no matter where you were was set up great.

It was our first visit but not our last! We loved the campground!

Always a treat. Plenty of room to walk our dog. Spaces maybe a bit narrow but love the grassy areas just to sit and relax. Great beach across Hwy 1. Restaurant is tops. Tasty food and drink. People are always friendly and helpful.

The campground was well maintained, the bathrooms were clean and the area was kid friendly and safe.

Unfortunately the owners of this campground don't like tents. I have a very small teardrop trailer with a small tent that attaches to the door to give me room to change and have a portable toilet at night. Instead of letting me keep it attached, they made me move it to a "tent platform" 30' away. This tent platform, was very high off the ground, could have used a couple steps getting up to it.

A beautiful camp ground with a great ocean view

The Ticks we're not okay! Also, if you pay $120 for a campsite you should be able to park your truck in that site!

Ticks!!! The kids got ticks and so did the dog. Yuck!! We suggested this KOA to some friends about six months ago. They came two weeks ago and said they would never come back because their kids got ticks... I didn’t believe them or thought they went into the woods but... when we went this weekend (over 65 of us) we got them too! Disgusting. Not happy campers that’s for sure

Our only issue was the security guard who came banging violently on our door and the neighbors door because our flags were in violation of the Costanoa Policy. Although I understand the policy and felt we were not in violation, the guard could have just left a note to talk to the campground staff in the morning. There was no need for "Nazi" tactics. This incident discouraged others from returning

Best KOA i have ever camped at in 68 years.

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.

Nice KOA friendly staff and nice spots. Did not use the facilities though. The restaurant at the Koa is very expensive so we went to the nearby town which had a nice roadhouse restaurant which I recommend instead.
