Great family time.

We had a wonderful time with the grandkids!!!

Great location. Camp clean, quiet, convenient. Bathrooms always clean. Maintenance guys fixed a water pipe leak very quickly. Everyone friendly. Surprised front desk had no info regarding hikes, state parks, maps for the area.

It was a fun experience, but a little pricey for the deluxe cabins.
Jul 26, 2017
It's the most expensive place to stay in the United States and it only has 30A. It is wonderful for kids though.

This is a great place for a family to go on vacation. We have been going here for five years now. We feel safe especially for our kids . The staff are very friendly and hardworking. We will definitely come back . Keep up your excellent work.

Overall it was a good experience. Areas of improvements: - More frequent cleaning of common bathrooms. - Provide information on hiking trails and other activities in handouts.

It was our first time staying in a deluxe cabin! What a treat! The main bedroom bed was as nice as a high end hotel bed! (My back requires a nice mattress for me to rest well). Such a clean and well maintained campground for being so large. The 5 minutes it too us to get to the beach was great!!! We will be coming back and trying the classic silver stream trailer next! LOVE KOA campgrounds!

We loved it! Our 2 year old daughter loved it and our 7month old twins will enjoy it as they grow. We will be back annually!

Great place. No issues. Campers and staff were all very nice. Plenty of things for the grandkids to do.
Jul 25, 2017
Lots to do in a Family Friendly environment.
Jul 25, 2017
Fantastic stay. It's just really expensive. That's my only drawback to staying again.
Jul 25, 2017
We've been staying here for over twenty years and always enjoy it! It's always clean, safe, accomodating and evolving!

Santa Cruz KOA is so much fun for kids! Our Airstream was very clean. I appreciated that quiet hours were honored by all.
Jul 25, 2017
We stay here a few times a year. Love Love this KOA. Though it might be one of the priciest KOA's we have stayed at it is worth it. One side note. Some of the store staff were a little unfriendly and short with the kids. Maybe because it was a super busy weekend. This is our go to place all the time. We brought family from San Diego and the Bay Area in cabins and they loved it.Planning another one

This is an outstanding KOA. So many awesome activities for the kids. Nice location that is close Santa Cruz, Mystery Spot and Monterrey. Love beating the valley summer heat here.
Jul 25, 2017
Fun. A little pricey.
Jul 25, 2017
Very well developed site with excellent facilities and staff. We had a tent site with hookups and the restrooms were close and clean. Kids activities and nearby beach were a big plus. The weather was fabulous. Will come back soon!!

Stayed in the handicap accessible site with five people. However, o my sleeps 4. Had to move the table out ourselves to get another mattress inside. Koa relocated us the 2nd evening to accommodate 5 people. At 11 I received a call for the original key but we had no cabin to move into. It took almost 3 hours to get the other cabin ready. Very disappointed. Koa did provide a discount for 1st night.

Great!

We always have a great time at this KOA. The new pool and hot tub was a great upgrade. We love the location - so close to the beach.

This was our first time at a KOA. It was a great experience. The location is great. Central to a lot of things. We would definitely recommend to others. We stayed in an airstream. It was nice to have most of the luxuries of home.
Jul 24, 2017
Good place friendly people. Overall cleanliness of trailer could have been better had issues with trailer that weren't taken care of I. Timely fashion
Jul 24, 2017
Great Staff, very clean sights. The only issue was that the water went out for about 3-4 hours, and would have appreciated better communication.
Jul 24, 2017
First time staying @ a KOA and we really enjoyed ourselves. Traveling with kids, the quietness @ 10pm was great. A bit on the expensive side.
Jul 24, 2017
Very nice place to stay and friendly and helpful staff,,, I had a great time
Jul 24, 2017
The staff and facilities at this KOA were very good. Lots to do and very supportive and friend staff. The new pool was also very nice. My only complaint was that the bathrooms are in need of maintenance, they could have been kept cleaner more often and the garbage cans were not emptied often enough.
Jul 24, 2017
There were no tent sites available when we booked, but were able to reserve a multipurpose site which worked out great for us. The site was a good size. The whole campground is very clean and maintained throughout the day. There are plenty of activities to keep the kids happy and busy. Will definitely return! Wish the sites were not as close together but our neighbors were not bothersome at all.
Jul 24, 2017
The park was clean and the help was great especially FDR and Mike and the live entertainment was wonderful but the Wifi was horrible and you couldn't even get Verizon. They definitely need to upgrade if they want people to come back

I went to the office in several occasions requesting information regarding activities but was unable to get any information And it was very loud all night and the Koa staff didn't seem to make any effort to control the loud guest throughout the park after midnight

Thanks for staying with us! Listen to what other guests are saying "We have been coming yearly to this KOA for 20+ years. It has grown and changed to become the best ever!"

We took our two grandchildren for a weekend stay and they had an awesome time. Both commented on how nice and polite everyone in a "yellow shirt" was to them. We already talking about our next visit.
Jul 24, 2017
so much for the kids to do!
Jul 24, 2017
I felt that there was a lot to offer but I felt the staff was not willing enforce rules Guest were very loud there wasn't anyone around to enforce quiet hours. I felt that staff didn't have a lot of information about the area when I went to the office requesting information about a gas station and local market. It was clean but lacked the customer service I was looking for.

Jul 24, 2017
very nice, clean. loved it
Jul 24, 2017
The tent sites were too small, close together, and expensive, but the location was great!

Campsites too close, too many wild screaming kids. Maybe it is better in the months when kids are in school.
Jul 24, 2017
Awsome!!!
Jul 23, 2017
We had a great stay! KOA staff were all helpful and kind. Facilities were clean, and we never had to wait for a bathroom or shower. There were so many activities for to keep the kids busy. We will definitely be back!
