I must tell you about an excellent campground our family stayed at recently.
The Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay KOA is an older campground but very well maintained. The park has some beautiful landscaping and many of the sites are wooded. The restrooms and showers are clean and the staff was helpful and friendly.
They have a year round heated pool, bike rentals and a nice video game room for the kids. Other amenities include a hot tub, KOA Express Fun Train, large playground, basketball court, bike rentals, an outdoor cinema, campfire theater, and also a dog park.
The property is only one mile to the Pacific Ocean so you could walk to the beach. This is a great location to explore the Monterey Bay area… Monterey Bay Aquarium, Fisherman’s Wharf, Santa Cruz Boardwalk, or Pebble Beach golf course.
This campground makes a great base camp for exploring the California coast and was a great place to stay.
