If you have kids and you are looking to have a great time in the Santa Cruz area, you can't go wrong with this farm!
My 5 year old son LOVED spending easter here. He already have plans go visit the goats, bunnies and Doug the dog (real name Oli) later this summer.
We had a great time at the pool. Both hot tub and pool were at perfect temperature. My wife and 2 sons were the only one there on a hot day :) We really enjoyed walking around and learning about different birds. Perfect for curios kids.
We ended up not spending the night at the campground. The site is located between RV's and since the property is closed to highway 101 is not too quiet. That was not the main reason why we did not stay, but definitely something to consider.
I had a really quite and great time.
I took my 3 years old son and he was just amazed by the beauty of the horses, the tipi and the fire pit.
Be aware that mornings can be really humid even when sunny. And if you sleep in the tipi, keep an eye on spiders or other creatures that can sneak in.
