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.

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

Nice people at the check in kiosk and a beautiful setting.

Been going for 10+ years and the resort looks better than ever...the food in the restaurant under Mo's leadership is superb! General Store is chalk full of goodies and the massages we had were great! We'll be back! TY!

Our stay was excellent. The grounds are well maintained. There's a great dog area. The best is when you don't feel like cooking you can just walk over to the restaurant (which serves great food) and enjoy a meal there! The general store is well stocked and carries a great variety of healthy foods.

The people were all so nice and helpful... We felt very safe and secured. Yet we bought 2 bundles of wood from kOA And once in our fire pit, we could not start it as the wood was wet. So we could not enjoy a fire and get warm. We also feel you expensive. We know that CostaNoa general store is not part of KOA. We would hope that you could share that it they NEED to bring down their prices.

One of our favorite CA coastal KOAs! Actually 25 miles north of Santa Cruz, next to Ano Nuevo St Park. Lovely grounds, ocean view RV sites, hiking trails at beach & into hills. Clean comfort stations with hot saunas. on-site spa has excellent massage & hot tub. Restaurant can be hit & miss, but not bad. Staff helpful. We go to get away from crowds & relax in wild, natural north coast beauty.

Beautiful surroundings, clean campsites

Our stay was very peaceful and relaxing. But it was very expensive. They cater to the hotel visitors more than the RVers. There is not enough value for the buck. As an RVer. The prices in the restaurant and store were way out of line. And the wifi sucked!

A big site with lots of amenities including a small shop, a restaurant, tent areas, cabins and all kinds of RV sites. Very friendly and easy to get to. My only let down was the price (very high) and that the RV stands are not concrete pads - which meant a lot of grit came into the RV from the ground around the site. But, I’d cheerfully stay again.

Quiet, Green, well maintained.

Had a reservation, and came in early (11.40 am) for check-in. There were spaces available, but was told that if I check in before noon, I had to pay $20 extra. I waited to after noon and went back. Then they said I had to wait to after 2.00 pm without extra fee.They were not nice either. (The security man was nice)

This was our first visit to any KOA. We really had a great time. The staff member who checked us in was friendly and helpful. Our site was perfect. We enjoyed the beach and the horses. We will definitely be back.

Easy check-in, nice ocean views, comfortable bar and restaurant and friendly staff.

Camp grounds were very nice and well maintained. We had horrible service at the restaurant. We had visitors that were not allowed to come to our RV.

Normally, it would be a 5 but this trip was a little disappointing. We stayed in the nicer spot, but there was a lot of noise Friday night until 11, there was a bubbling cauldron of water or sewage behind us, not sure which, and it just wasnt the usual awesome experience we have at Coastanoa.

Great location! Very clean. Workers are nice. Food at restaurant was good quality. Overall quiet during my stay through the week, but got noisier when all the big-rigs arrived on Friday evening. I will be going back!

The young married couple working the campground were so accommodating and personable. The grounds were well maintained. The bathrooms were very clean. We enjoyed our stay so much, we’ve booked a future say at the end of summer.

Love this spot, such a gem!!!!

New RV couldn't ask for a better place to start. Love the people and the grounds we will be back with the grand kids.

Nice quiet week in mid May. Some rain, kind of rare for mid-May, but we stayed dry and warm. Not many RVs around us. Wireless internet was wonky all week, but was working by the time we left (at the end of our stay). Overall we love this place. The crew here are more than helpful. We'll be back many times...

Wonderful

A great experience overall. The facilities were generally clean and well-kept. The restroom / shower building near Seascape needs some minor maintenance attention. The bird demonstration was fantastic! One of the night security guards gave extra effort to quiet down a noisy neighbor after we complained. We will hopefully be back soon!

We were very impressed with the grounds, grounds keepers (worked hard and the grounds show it), the staff (helpful, pleasant, and very engaging), the garden, animals, and of course campers. It was our first time along with our friends but it will be at the top of our list to return. We have stayed at a lot of KOA’s and this one was one of the best by far.

Great, great, great!

Very nice grounds, clean. Restaurant and General Store are great! If you take a walk to the beach make sure you can handle going over dunes, it can be taxing!

Great place to take the family. This year they had a falconry show, petting area with goats, and horse back riding. Great time.
