Campground Reviews

Feb 19, 2014
The staff was friendly and helpful. The grounds are well kept, and the bathrooms, pool, spa, and activity centers were welcoming. The location is convenient for touring local beaches, but it is also butted up against the highway, so traffic noise is most unfortunate and unpleasant.

Not enough space for our trailer and truck. Felt like we were in a sardine can. Otherwise Avila is a beautiful place and we enjoyed the Bob Jones bike trail.

It is perceived to be near the beach which is 3 miles away as well as the hub of the town is quite a distance away. The noise from HWY 110 does not allow for a quiet sleep.

Great location especially for biking and proximity to Bob Jones Trail. Easy access to beaches by bike. Campsites are small and close together but ok for smaller units. Other negative comments from other guests are over exaggerated. Seems over priced but other parks in the area are just are similar prices.

This was one of the dearest parks we have stayed in on our California road trip yet ranks as only OK for us. Staff when asked about local landmarks knew very little. Met our needs but that is all. Clean and tidy.

For the most part our stay was uneventful except for the 2 days that the sewer backed up and there was spillage all around us. I fell that all campers that were affected should have been compensated.

people very nice and accomodating

We enjoyed ourselves very much. A few of the amenities we wish were there are fire pits, or at least one large group one, bike rentals and larger RV spaces. We reserved one large enough to accommodate our 26 foot RV, and that was all it held. We had to park our truck outside the RV park instead of in our camp spot. Next time we come we will make sure to reserve a much larger spot in the back.

Spaces are too small for RV. When I step out of my rv I'm looking at next space sewer. Showers should be cleaner and remolded. Best part of stay was beautiful bike trail to beach. We also enjoyed jacuzzi.

Great place to stay. Pet friendly campground. Sometimes the spots are tight to navigate. Nice facilities although the restrooms are on the cold side.

It seems this park needs some modernizing and wider spaces.

We love KOA

The people are very friendly,and the campground is clean. The only negative is the spaces are quite small for 26ft and over.

Tired bathrooms, weak showers, too long to wait for hot water, generally dingy. Hot tub not very hot.

We enjoyed our stay in Avila. The Bob Jones trail down to the beach was convenient, beautiful, and fun. The TV and Internet signal were weak, but that wasn't too big of a problem. What we were most displeased about is how close we were to our neighbors. We have been to several KOA's and haven't had our neighbors 5 feet from our back door. Next time we'll request a site by the playground.

Very nice and quiet

The sites were a little narrow for a coach with a pop out. The Park was clean and heated bathrooms were awesome! 10.00 for guest to visit our site was a little too pricey and disappointing.

Sewer system needs to be larger or reemed clear. threats of $ 350 for sewer spills is most likely from a sewer system that is not draining properly and not from the RVer. Too many rules of don't do this and don't do that. Nice area. Easy to find. Friendly hostess.

I stayed two nights at this KOA. The location is excellent. WE brought our bikes and really enjoyed having the Bob Jones trail so close. The facilities were immaculate and in very good condition. The highway noise was a little bit of a bummer but not that bad.

Clean campground, no noise issues. Loved the hot-tub in the cold evening.

The staff at this Koa are not friendly. We had a rv site that was so small we didn't have room for a chair. They save sites in case someone comes in late without reservations. The web says secure gate this is not true, they don't use it or secure restrooms. the pet area is not well maintained.

The stay was great. The people in the office are fantastic!!! Friendly and out and about keeping a check on things. The grounds are exceptionally clean, kept up. The only reason I didn't rate it at the top is the occasional Odor from the springs spa and some traffic noise. We will definitely return!!!!
Nov 13, 2013
Some site's were to small, no fire pits, no charcoal grills, tables were in bad need of repair. Knowing all of this I will still make a return trip to the KOA as the area is great and lot's to do.

I would normally rate this KOA a 5. Everything was top notch except the water. When we filled our tank it smelled like dead fish. We had to completely empty our tank at the next stop and flush the tanks to get rid of the smell. The campground and staff were wwonderful, everything else was 5 stars!

to noisey . Rec room was dirty one pool table was messed up non usable, no ping pong balls. Pool was nice a bit cold, campsites were very tight for the size they said they would fit. Over all it was a bit high in price for its location. I have stayed in others that were the same price but better maintained and better location

We have stayed at approximately 40 different KOA locations over the past 2 summers. This was the coldest, least friendly place we ever stayed. They gave us a long LIST OF FINES for almost anything we might do! Never ever will go back there!
Nov 03, 2013
Sites are very close together. We were right next to a cabin and could see inside the cabin from our living room

the camp is clean and the staff are friendly and helpful

Very friendly staff. The acommodations were a bit dated, but clean. Also a bit on the expensive side, but we did enjoy our stay.

Very clean. Short distance to Avila Beach. Close to Bob Jones Bike Trail. Will go again soon.
