I used to really like this campground but the last few years it has gone downhill. No security at night to quiet campers down when the party gets to loud after hours. No inforcing rules like parking on grass, picking up after their dog

Everything anyone could possibly do to make our stay great was done! Super nice people, clean facilities, and superb location! No cell service and iffy Wi-Fi but that was to be expected in a remote coastal campground. We love this place and we will be back!

Campsites were pretty close in the loop we were in. Campsites were easy to back in- nice turn around loop

We had a great time at the Santa Cruz North KOA. We tent camped and our children enjoyed the grassy tent area. We also liked the proximity to the tide pools and the views of the ocean and the lighthouse.

This was our first visit to Costanoa and it was just what we were looking for. The hiking trails were great. We hiked up to the Ohlone Ridge Lookout, which gave us a good workout. We took our bikes and were able to,take a good ride. The nearby beaches were wonderful. We will definitely return again, and for a,longer stay next time.

Everywhere in the Santa Cruz area was completely booked. We got lucky and found Costanoa. Nice, uncrowded beaches in both directions of the camp. The sites were clean and rates included showers and hookups. Just beware of the skunks and raccoons. They are not afraid of people.

Great location, beach access, bike and hike trails, family really enjoyed the stay . We will definitely be back for more.

Very quiet, love to hear the ocean, close to a great beach to take our dogs, but VERY expensive to stay there, So half of my friends would never spend that kind of money on a camping place.

I enjoyed the experience. Everyone was friendly and it was clean. I will definitely be considering it a place to stay the next time in the area.

Only issue I had was the cable. I didn't work and the campground did nothing to fix it. Other than that great place to stay. Close to San mateo, Santa Cruz and Half Moon Bay.

We were not warned about the raccoon problem and skunk problem. Our family lost a lot of food to them. We should have been warned verbally or with a handout. Someone said it was posted. We were there a week and did not see any posting!!

This is a lovely campground. It was well maintained and very clean. All the personnel were friendly and helpful. The site is beautiful, and there is lots to do within the campground and many trails to explore. A close walk to several beaches. We definitely plan to go come back to this campground.

Nice campground. Back East (PA) we have more space. Just getting use to your neighbors right next to you is hard. I was always taught to stay in your own site. When we came back from seeing the city our neighbors had taken over our site. They had things hanging off our camper. At first they did not want to move and take their stuff down. But then they did. Happy we were only there a short

Nice, clean sites. Ours even had a beautiful ocean view.

It is always a great spot in which to camp because of its location near some beautiful scenery! However, there appear to be some inequities regarding who can select a preferred site. Also, since camping there in January & just this last week (July), there's been no attempt to improve the poor static-filled cable reception.

It is the best place...KOA ever! We just love Mike & Ann very helpful & accomodating couple. We will be back!

WiFi is VERY limited, spaces are too close together, and the sewer dump was uphill!
Jul 17, 2014
Spaces way to small, too close together
Jul 16, 2014
Very, very crowded. The sites are too close together to allow multiple tents and cars. One site next ( 8 feet away) to us had 3 tents and 2 cars. We were packed in like sardines! The site on the other side of us brought a portable hot tub! The place was a circus. We ended up not spending the night and drove back home that evening.

This is a beautiful campground with lots of options. The bathrooms are the best feature of all -- clean, solar heated, warm water, and teakwood mats in the shower so you don't have to stand in dirt. It's almost like being in a hotel. The location is good; an easy drive to Santa Cruz for fun and dining.

We enjoyed Costanoa so much! Probably the cleanest park we have stayed in. Wonderful family friendly place.
