Perfect! Nice spot to camp on the coast.

We stayed for one night only while driving up the coast of California. It was a very nice campground with nice clean amenities.

My friend and I stayed for one night at a tent site on a Monday and I wish we had stayed longer. The grounds are well-maintained and have great amenities. The only thing I wish it had was a grill at each site. We didn't bring our own so we used the communal grills by the wash sink, but fortunately no one else was using that area. we'll definitely be back!

The grounds were beautiful and facilities were nice. My problem was with staff. Check in was very rude to my family and to me. Everyone in my family had a bad experience with check in. Then staff at pizza place were insulting. I knew pizza place was new so I had no problem with waiting or some confusion, but that was not the issue - they were just plain rude and treated us like we were stupid

I can't believe the new Pizza place called the "Pine" charges $22 for pizzas. You do not expect to pay these prices when camping.

Our friends with 2 small children were turned away and not allowed to camp with us. They were first told it's because that would put our campground at 8 rather than 6 alloted campers per site. The irony is there were open sites all around us, some were never filled overnight. Also, badly designed camp area (no campfires) plus so many ticks. Heartbroken for friends + ticks?! Nope

Your staff was sarcastic, combative, rude, and utterly unhelpful. I was embarrassed that my friends who I invited to join me for this trip were treated so rudely. I will not return to a KOA.

Very windy and freezing at the location, very limited camping facilities. Bathrooms and fireplace area were very nice.

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Costanoa KOA. We delighted in apps and drinks at Cascade, made s'mores and new friends at the communal fire pit and our 4 mo daughter slept the best she ever has!

Location is great. Cleanliness was fantastic. The tent camping was horrible. I didn't see the "no fire" or I would have chose someplace else. Camping isn't camping without a fire outside your tent

Very clean KOA. Great helpful staff.

This is one of my favorite camping places, even before Costanoa Resort turned it over to a KOA operation. First time ever to be disappointed at the "Comfort Station", as there was no hot water and the restrooms were not kept as pristine as years pass. Awesome and excited to see the current changes that is taking place but please do not skimp on ammenities that's there now.

Grounds were pretty nice, showers needed a lot of tlc. Wind was horrible in the tent sites, but that is out of their control.
Jun 21, 2017
My family and I had a wonderful stay. The staff are friendly and helpful, the grounds and bathrooms are beautiful and clean and the environment is tranquil and relaxing.

Clean, comfortable, easy access to hot shower, bathroom and laundry. Great advice upon checking in.
Jun 15, 2017
I will never stay in the Lighthouse camping area again. The wind was terrible and it was super cold without a fire pit. The tent cabins seem like a better option. Otherwise the place seemed really nice.
Jun 12, 2017
Nice restrooms. Good variety of accommodations from tents to lodge.

Great if you are in an RV. Not so great if you are in a tent.
May 28, 2017
Clean facilities, easy access, and the campsite was great. No problems.

The campground is absolutely gorgeous, and in a nice secluded area. The tent spaces are at the very back, in somewhat of a fenced in area, which didn't prevent the skunk from roaming around near our tent. That was a bit freaky, but everything turned out fine. The bathrooms are very nice, and well kept!

We have found our "Happy Place" at the beach! The grounds are so beautifully landscaped and maintained. The staff is so warm and helpful! The entire site is so family friendly! Our family di dnot want to leave! It is so close to so many beaches , towns, and state parks to check out for a short part of the day. We will definitely be back and cannot wait to bring family and friends to join us!

It was the best KOA I've stayed at. Thanks
Apr 23, 2017
Love it! This is our second time and we love it even more!

Great price, clean bathrooms, sauna +, no additional charges to use showers. Friendly campers

We were gracefully checked in, and Hurley took great care of us. Thanks to the staff for showing us such a wonderful time.

Great KOA! Clean campgrounds, I do wish they had BBQ's and firepits in the tent camping area.
Apr 17, 2017
Great campsite with friendly staff! Would definitely return or recommend
Apr 15, 2017
Great place to stay! A big thank you to the guy at the security gate for helping us out with tarps during a big rain storm! Great location.
Apr 13, 2017
Tent camp area is great, nice green grass, clean bathrooms, fires at comfort stations , facilities to charge phones, wash dishes, our family has stayed here multiple times. We love it
Apr 11, 2017
I didnt even set up. They double booked my site. I wasnt even going to stay: It was like 30 people, including multi-vehicle large groups - a school trip - packed into a tiny fenced in backyard lot. Worth $10, if you can handle the sound of 2 dozen kids 10 feet from you, trailer trash classic rock drinking smoking headbangers right across the road. Unles u can sleep thru a fire alarm...

Beautiful sites - but I was only planning on visiting my son and daughter and had to buy a tent site just to have a parking spot! That was very disappointing because they needed all the space in their vehicle so I had to drive separately. It rained very hard and the lighting was poor and I fell in the walk way into a pile of cut down trees/shrub. Employees are very nice.

We tent camped in the Lighthouse tent area. It was perfectly placed near bathrooms and in the shade of a tree. Check in and check out was super easy and we very easily extended our trip one day! The people around us were very polite and maintained quiet hours. Next time we come we hope to spend more time in the actual camp area- it was gorgeous!

- tent site next to a horse stable; strong smell in the air - BBQ place broken, not able to cook any of the food bought and brought there; - group campground, no privacy; - there's a notice at checkin station, saying that there have recently been break-ins on multiple cars, which made me worry about the security and didn't sleep well...

I've stayed at many KOA's and this one is definitely not my favorite. Sauna's were not working in two of the court areas, there was only one shower in each bathroom. No Jacuzzi, or pool which everyone looks forward to while staying at a KOA. Staff was great and fantastic thou.

Our Aptos Boy Scout Troop stayed in the lighthouse tent camping area. It was great, really fun. We hiked to the beach and back and did some orienteering. We roasted marshmallows at the Comfort station. Fun trip!

This KOA is great for families and if you want a nice "glamping" experience. If you like to tent camp, it's not your place. Too crammed in like sardines - not much privacy.
Mar 21, 2017
Need more campfires for the camp sites.
Mar 13, 2017
Some loud people at night but overall great facilities and views! Would stay again next time

We arrived late with no reservation and Collette with security was incredibly nice and helped us find a spot to camp in. Beautiful campground!

Awesome staff! Have been coming to Coastanoa for over 17 years.

The website says there are wooden platforms for tents. This is not true at Eucalyptus. Everything got wet and muddy. It costs twice as much as it should given how close together sites are. They are in an open area; no visual separation from each other.

It was my first time at Costanoa and it was so amazing! The staff is super friendly and we had the best tent campsite ever. Our group of 4 families raved about our stay. Thank you Costanoa!
