Very nice environment. A bit pricey.

My son and Grand kids came for a visit and had a great time. They like it so much that they will camp in the future.

The amenities here were fabulous. I was disappointed with our campsite though. We had constant light streaming into our tent and noise from maintenance started just after 6AM. The picnic tables were bolted to the walls and just very awkward to use in general. Overall we loved the experience!

Campground was fine but glad there was room because sites were small. Was disconcerting that security did not answer the phone when we called in so we had to wait for another camper to let us in.

We stayed over Easter weekend & had a wonderful time. We lucked out with great warm weather! The campsites are small but clean; showers & bathrooms clean, playground, mini golf & pillow jump were all so much fun for our little one. The pool was a big hit, the bike rentals were fun too. The staff were all very friendly. I have to say the price is a little high for a campsite, even with membership.

This was my first stay the Santa Cruz koa and i was absolutely impressed. Superbly clean, extremely kind and friendly staff. Sites were tidy and clean. Unfortunately we had to leave 1 day early due to a family emergency and they refunded me that night, which I did not even expect at all. Excellent customer services and a magnificent stay.

Enjoyed our stay very much. The SC/MB KOA is always a friendly and reliable place to camp. We enjoyed the newly renovated pool area.

Lovely staff and free upgrade to a cabin from a tent site, so I can’t complain. One little thing would be if the store carried a few more items such a large fruit/veg as it is 7 miles from the nearest centre. Just a thought.

There is plenty to do and a lot of activity in this campground, which is great if you have kids or groups. If you're new to camping and want to still have the comforts of home like flushing toilets, showers, playgrounds and a convenience store...this is the spot! However, if you're looking to be in the great outdoors away from it all, then this is not likely your cup of tea. Staff was great!!!

Hi. It was a great experience overall except for checking out a brand new faulty cabin heater.

It was so nice and cleaned that I can't wait to camp there again.

I have stayed here for the past 4/5 years. I have always received excellent staff service and enjoyed the clean fully operating bathrooms. In the past I have always given a 5 star review sadly this year I will not be. Upon arriving to the campground we did not have the Passcode for entrance, security was rude, 2 or 4 sinks in the bathroom are broken, no tp, and front desk was rude.

I am one of the 1000âs of refugees from the Sonoma county fire. We both told management this. All over the north and South Bay help for those experiencing the life threatening effects of this fire are being helped. Here at the Santa Cruz koa NOTHING. NO OFFER we werenât even given a cup of coffee. In order for us to continue to stay we had to move our tent. is an excuse? We are still here.

No hot showers, very bad Wifi. Would expect more for this price


Thanks for staying with us! Listen to what other guests are saying about their stay. " Awesome stay. They even pick up your bag of garbage at the curb and and when you buy firewood they deliver it to your site. We will most definitely be staying again. Jim & Sharrie from Petaluma"

This was our first time staying at the Santa Cruz/ Monterey KOA and it was excellent! We will definitely return and I have already recommended this location to my friends and family. When I arrived I asked to upgrade my tent site to an electric tent site, the host who checked me in was so fabulous that she upgraded me to a cabin and got me a KOA membership. The staff and facility was awesome.

We had a great time at the Satan Cruz/Monterey Bay KOA. The grandkids kept busy from sun up until bed time there was so much for them to do from biking to hiking, miniature golfing and swiming to name a few. The camp calendar was so full for mid week we weren't able to do it all. We will definitely be vacationing again at the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay KOA.
