Had a great Halloween weekend. Would like the time of trick-or-treating to go back to starting at 4 instead of 6. It got dark too soon.

It was fun and my toddler son really enjoyed it. He loved the train and bouncy pillow and even"climbed" the palm tree. A heated pool would be nice so that my 5month old and husband could also participate. The trash was picked up almost immediately and the staffs were all very friendly. We especially liked Christy as she interacted with us the most.

This was our very first camping experience with our kids and it was the perfect introduction to camplife! We stayed 3 nights in one of your airstream trailers (we don't have our own trailer or RV so this option was great!). Our kids loved all the free activities and made use of those daily a d the banana bike rentals were so much fun for them to ride around the campground. Thank you!

Santa Cruz KOA is so much fun for kids! Our Airstream was very clean. I appreciated that quiet hours were honored by all.

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.

The staff at KOA Santa Cruz are super helpful and extremely nice. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay and plan on coming back next year. The only thing I would maybe recommend would be the prices to rent a cabin or airstream they seem a bit high considering the KOA is located in Watsonville vs. Santa Cruz or Monterey Bay. Thank you!

Air stream had no heater working and drain in shower needed to be cleaned. Slow draining. Our RV site we knew had grass in he past this time we had dirt!!!!

Reservations were canceled before we could stay Due to poor management.

Are à family of five and stayed for 3 nights in an airstreamer. Great service and coosy to stay in à retro RV. A lot of bunkspace but we understand now why it is for four people. Chairs and kitchen utilitiies are for four

Loved it.

Awesome site and great workers. Would love to have trash can around our site as the trash bin in our airstream unit is abit small. Please extend the wifi reception as the area near airstream units does not have reception 98% per our stay. Larger pool would be greatful as the pool was pack when we where there.


Thanks for staying with us! We have the best wi-fi system available in our area, it will slow down with hi-demand. Thanks for noticing our new pool and all our the guests enjoying it. There is a larger pool at Manresa Beach.....It provides plenty of space to swim.

Love this campground. Had so much fun. All of the staff were so nice and so helpful. Can't wait to go back and enjoy the new pool!

we rented a airsteam the shower didn't work had to use the showers at the bathrooms which was ok the price was very high over 200.00 a night no change of sheets no clean towels the pool was closed everyone was very nice just think they should be cheaper for what they offer

Concern about young children riding low bikes on same road as vehicles. Camper area seems too crowded. Showers could work better. On plus side, cabin was very clean, good supply of toiletries. Had a great time in our family reunion. Staff very pleasant.

We enjoyed staying in one of the airstream trailers! The site and campground were very clean and well maintained. Plenty of activities to keep the kids busy and happy. We will definitely stay again!

The pool was not close to being open. The did give some discount but very disappointing. Advance warning would have been nice.
