My family of 4 stayed at this KOA for 4 days and 4 nights during 2017 Spring Break in a travel trailer. The staff was friendly and the sites were large and well appointed. This is a great location to stay and take day trips to Santa Cruz boardwalk, Moneterrey, San Jose and many local CA State Parks full of...

We were there around June 2016 and loved our experience at the restaurant and camping.  We decided to return this year April 2017. OMG.  How disappointed we were with the food at the restaurant compared to last year - Cascade Bar & Grill.  First, they don't have a chef anymore.  Just a cook.  (This was confirmed by an employee -...

We've been going to Costanoa for years and staying in the tents or the lodge. We FINALLY made it to the west coast in our RV and were so excited to spend a week at this campground! We had booked our reservation online, through KOA and had a confirmed, paid reservation. When we arrived and were checking in they asked...

This place was amazing. The RV spots were roomy and had full hookups. There were tents and cabins as well. Everything was clean, well stocked and organized. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The ocean was right across the street. We took long walks and just hung out. The only con was the restaurant. It was a bit pricey...

So this has been a yearly trip for the past 7 years with a group of friends on MLK holiday weekend. Well, this will definitely be our last. Upon arriving our price went from $80/night in previous years to $120/night!!! A 50% increase just like that. We knew about the ridiculous TV rule so we planned ahead and brought a...

Nice beach about a 10 minute walk. But shabby bathrooms. Muddy RV spots. And very expensive . I feel you are better off going to the KOA near Watsonville, a bit better amenities ,and nicer bathrooms and quite a bit cheaper and also walking distance a great beach.

This is an average KOA campground that is extremely expensive. The best location is Seascape loop if you want a view of the ocean which is across the highway, choose space S19 if you want one of the best views. They have added a security check point to screen visitors which is reassuring, I think. Make sure you use your...

This KOA is about $80 / night basic. You need one of those special sewer attachments and we had to search out someone to get access to the laundry. The staff here are super nice, but the $80 a night doesn't warrant the stay. You have to walk over a highway to get to the beach. Also in the area...

So this place is more "glamping" then camping for sure. Which is good, since I hate to be cold, wet, hungry, sleeping on a hill (you know, all the things actual camping involve). One of my favorite things about this place is the bathroom -yes I am serious. They have radiant floor heat like a spa! I would tell my...
