We needed a place to stay for our spring break Santa Cruz vacation. Hotels were outrageously priced, campgrounds were already full (I was late in booking) and I was feeling somewhat desperate when I decided to look at RV parks. When I called Santa Cruz Ranch, the gentleman was very nice but initially told me they were full on the night I wanted to come in, but then he said, "wait...". He put me on hold, then wahlah! He came back on the line and said someone had not shown up and hadn't called so I could have that spot. Just what I needed to hear! He set everything up for a late check in. The park is well kept, has a pool and hot tube, laundry, rec room w/ a TV and the bathrooms/showers are kept very tidy and clean. We had full hookups as expected in an RV park. All in all it was a good experience. It was a little pricey, but a lot cheaper than a hotel. The staff is very pleasant and the people in the park were clean, quiet and nice. This place is a short drive to Santa Cruz and the beaches, it's definitely an option for a low budget short vacation.
