Tent Reviews

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful KOA site. We loved having electricity and water in the tent site. The only reason I am giving 4 star instead of 5 is that we wish the bathrooms had automatic paper towel dispense, touchless soap dispenser and the water in the bathroom sinks were all activated by motion instead of touching. We will be back and we will recommend the place to our friends.

Very well kept grounds. Fantastic place to bring the family.

Everything was great except the bathrooms. They were really dirty. Not kept. With Covid that is a really No No! Other than that is was a great stay. Bathrooms are a must for me especially with all the families staying at this KOA.

Tents sites were too close together and ground too hard for pegs. It’s was very well run and lovely.

Went well overall, exceeded or met all expectations.

The facilities were clean and well organized. The staff was helpful and friendly. We rented both a tent site and a one room hut, which were across from each other, and had a fun time. Many camp activities were closed because of COVID, but it was fun to camp out and make s'mores and Manresa State Beach is just down the road, which was the centerpiece of the stay.

I loved this campground. Our favorite KOA so far on our “around the country” tent camping trip.
Aug 15, 2020
I was shocked how small the campsites were and especially shocked that they had every site open during the pandemic with little room to social distance between sites. We were lucky enough to get a bigger site after we requested a different site. I would have hoped for fresher wood chips in our site as it was very dusty and dirty. Otherwise, our experience was fine.

We had a great time. The staff was very friendly and helpful in answering questions. Even in the midst of the COVID-19 era the neighborhood adhered to all the safety precautions. Close access to beaches was highly desirable.

Very nice site for families. Customer service was very good and every employee on site was friendly and answered all questions / concerns. Look forward to coming back.

The amenities out there are amazing, will definitely be back.

Overall, campground was great. We used a 10x12 tent, still had tons of room 2 park. There's no privacy; trees are young between spots. Campground was clean, lots of amenities, especially if u have kids. Cost was definitely pricey, however there was no where else to stay, & if u take advantage of the amenities, it really does make up 4 it. Our style is more privacy, less amenities, less cost.

Great customer service! The site was perfect! Already planning and thing of going back!

Face masks were NOT enforced in common areas such as the bathroom.

Over priced and very small tent sites. One other tent camper we met called it the sardine capsite.

When I was younger I remember going with my family to Santa Cruz KOA. Now I got to bring my family for the first time and we all really enjoyed it. Kind of a bummer some activities were cancelled due to Covid 19, but overall we had a great time and will be back again�

We tent camped. The folks working there were all very nice. The campsites... HORRIBLY small, especially for the price. It looks like lots of neat amenities will be available whenever covid is over. Showers were disgusting (the ceilings and inner shower curtains had built up grime. Not awesome. Hooks at the bathroom sinks are needed, since no stuff is allowed on the countertops.

Quiet time needs to be enforced better . People full on partying until 3am for several nights. It would be helpful to have a drive by reminder at 10 pm. We come with small children that need to sleep. This is very family oriented campsite with beautiful location and friendly staff. Very clean as well!

Bathrooms were very cramped and dirty.

You guys were awesome. Everyone was friendly and willing to help. Because of this overblown Chinese Flu, many things were shut down. There was also a group of men camping who "identified as women" they were fighting and cussing until mindnight. They were also using the women's bathroom. Many campers were voicing to us how they would never come back, I told them I had never had this experience

Loud and profane arguments came from another tent site. The KOA advertises strict enforcement of quiet hours after 10:00 pm but didn’t control the noise until 11:20. Also, as tent sites are so close together, campfire smoke continued to waif into our tent until the wee hours. We paid $100 per night plus fees. The main door to the women’s bathroom was stuck open due to a broken door stop.

Love this place! my family stayed at a lodge with my friend's family. It is surrounded by pine trees, quiet, resting and kids friendly environment. One of the best parts is less than one & a half hours to get there from the silicon valley.
