Haven't been here since new owners (4 years) Lots of nice improvements though I do miss the pinball machines in the game room. I even got a "Fun House" machine after playing it so much there. Spoke with owner and suggested clock for pool area and Shark Shack. Complimented him on improvements! We moved to Washington state and were in... More

We ended up here due to a change in our schedule and the lack of tent camping sites available in Monterey. It was a little pricey at $65 per night but it was definitely one of the largest we have used this trip. The site sported a nice pool, game room, a camp store/gift shop, and plenty of play areas...

Our family visits this KOA annually for Memorial Day weekend. We took our 5th wheel trailer. This campground is very clean. The bathrooms are updated and clean. This is a great place for families. My 9 year twins love this campground and look forward to going every year. During our stay they enjoyed bouncing on the huge bounce pillow, riding... More

we stayed here for two nights and our first campsite in the states. It was busy, but very well organised and family friendly. Definitely a place to stay if you have kids! Overall the facilities were clean and the staff friendly. Slightly on the expensive side, but the play ground/swimming pool and avtivities for the children compensate for this.

We stayed here one night on our trip up the coast. We do nt stay in many KOAs, we usually prefer state/county campgrounds or more traditional RV parks. Our experience here was great, it is family oriented, clean and staffed with nice people. In my experience traveling in a small travel trailer with a family for over 10 years, this... More

Our family of 6 stayed in a deluxe cabin for 4 nights and it was the greatest experience. The outside environment was clean and well kept. The activities that they had to offer for kids while being there was perfect and had lots of variety. You weren't too close to your neighbor that it was uncomfortable and did I mention... More

We stayed for three nights. We got a deluxe cabin which was amazing! Loved it , a bit pricy but I split the cost with a friend and are other friends stayed in a one room cabin close to us. The pool had been shut down the day before we arrived for a inspection violation and remained closed for the... More

We stayed here for two nights on a road trip through California, and this was a great stop! This is a very well-run KOA - it was nice and clean and the staff was very friendly. We had issues with neighbors playing loud music into the evening and staff was prompt when we finally decided to complain. Our boys loved... More

This is the best KOA we have stayed at, a bit spendy though. The staff is friendly and the place is super clean. It is conveniently located between Monterey and Santa Cruz. The souvenirs are cheaper in their store than on the Santa Cruz boardwalk.

It's a campground with hookups, which is great. There is a wide variety of accommodations there. There are small and larger wooden cabins, air stream trailers to rent and various sized camping places. The road throughout the large park is paved. The Grand kids especially enjoyed renting the banana bikes, the large bouncer dome and the pool. It's crowded and... More
