Wonderful, simple check-in and check-out

Our cabin did not have a working heater and we were all cold the 1st night. The tub didn't have a working stopper to take a bath and we had to use a washcloth. It also would have been nice to have a sponge to do the dishes and coffee filters for the coffee maker provided. For the high cost of the cabin we expected more.

Had a great time and the cabin was very nice.

For the price per night, the cable reception is very poor. Regardless of site, we have always experienced poor service.

As always, a great place to pull into and enjoy the beauty of the area along with great weather of the Central CA Coastline. Loved seeing all of the kids enjoying a tech free day outside in the fresh ocean air. Will be back.

Great 4 day weekend getaway! Staff was friendly, property kept clean & maintained. The kids loved the play area & the dogs loved the dog park. Our two room cabin w fire ring was perfect. We were very grateful for the hot coffee at the general store when our campfire coffee just wasn't cutting it. Check in & out was a breeze as well.��

Clean and spacious spots. Super helpful and friendly staff. So many activities for the kids! We realized we didn’t get any family pictures because we were all off doing our own activities! Thank you.

Clean campground with clean, wide RV spaces. Far too many children, so not the best place for couples without children looking for a quiet outing. The WiFi did not work at all for my wife and I. I would expect for $127 per night, to at least have working WiFi. Overall, nice park.

The staff is great and we have camped there often over the years along with several families in our group. The cost has skyrocketed and is making us start looking for alternative locations. I sure hope they come to their senses and realize that raising the prices by almost 50% with no real changes to the park is going to driver away a lot more families.

Thanks for staying with us and noticing our new pool and spa area to go along with the new picnic area currently under construction. With the updates to the store and building and all the site improvements the park has made big changes in the last couple of years. FYI: Rates never go up 50%, but as with any successful business, rates are based on supply and demand, we have a lot of demand.

We called the office because of people drinking and standing in the street ( with small children). And oblivious to us trying to get to our site , twice. Very expensive $140 with taxes. Guess this place just isn’t our type of place to stay.

Thanks for staying with us! Check out what other guests say about us. " I can not commend this KOA enough. We always splurge and stay in the deluxe cabins and they are so beautifully maintained. We loved the new pool area too!! We can not wait to come back! Always make such great memories. It is truly paradise to be with this KOA family! Bravo KOA staff and maintenance staff and housekeeping !

We Really Enjoyed Our Stay! An employee named Wayne went above and beyond to help us and we really appreciate him! We will definitely be back! Thank You!

We had a great time with our children, but unfortunately our $400 ice chest was stolen from in front of our trailer. Apparently the cameras in the park are only set up to see certain areas therefore there was nothing the staff could do to help us as we were not parked in one of those spots. We paid a lot of money to stay here and it is discouraging to know people steal and no action was taken.

Our stay was great until a few of our friends things was stolen from there camp site at night. I don’t think it reflects on the KOA negative per say but it sure makes you think about packing your things in at night. I would stay again but it makes you a little more cautious. It was great other than that.

Internet was intermittent at best. Too expensive.
