No picknick table at cabin, no pits, cabins are smelly and close to one another.

I felt that the facilities were very safe and were kept up very well.

Very neat, clean and well kept. This is a very busy and crowded location. The staff is great. Super friendly, organized, always helpful. Right off the freeway and easy to get to.

Just a quick overnight stay this time. Was disappointed to find thorny weeds bordering the pet exercise area, otherwise satisfctory. Will stay there again.

Sites are much to close together. We were never comfortable sitting outside. We spent 5 nights and basically decided to just sleep there...planning activities to be away from the campground as much as possible. Only 2 washing machnes worked and were constantly in use ...mainly by the longterm residents. It felt like we stayed at a mobile home park.

men's restrooms were not clean, toilets flooded sometimes. women's restrooms were clean, though...

We had a great time starting with a warm and helpful welcome.Any queries we had were well answered. The facilities were in good order , especially the pool.Upon leaving our RV would not start so I asked at reception if they knew anyone who could help and within minutes the site owner David arrived and after 3 hours got us on our way. He would not accept payment. He is a true gentlman. Many thanks

It was nice but I did not like the back row spaces they are just to narrow

This campsite is right off (actually directly beside) 101Hwy so our site was noisy all night. Nice staff but camp shop shut at 5 pm. Also a lot of rules e.g. Max of 4 per campsite, and a screw- in fitting needed for sewer pipe, which are not usual rules we have met on our travels.

This KOA has too many rules. (dogs and kids appear to be disliked) Sites are gravel. Game room - all very old. Bath House could use a renovate, but shower was hot. Cabin's were nice. Nearby bike-trail to beach is nice. Lots of poison oak along eastern edge of park.

We have a 38 ft unit,this park is extremely tight. No room to drive thru the park vehicles parked very haphazard, driveway blocked. Sites very narrow. We will never stay here again. People very helpful. On up side,Finally a KOA with recycling!!

Had a great time. Sites are small - we would of liked to be by a tree for shade. People were friendly and helpful. Loved the pool and spa.

We had a nice relaxing time...however just like last year, there are STILL no children activities...movie night, treasure hunts, etc. Also other KOA's have pancake breakfasts, your still does not. I will have to check on activities before reserving for next year. Staff was great and we LOVED our cabin.

No toilet paper in the bathroom for 3 of the 4 nights we stayed. Also no paper towels. The bathroom doors to stalls did not lock. Disappointing.
Jul 29, 2013
Great location to beach, SLO, Pismo, farm. There was some problem with the drains so a few times there was some back up that overflowed into the surrounding campsites which sauced an unpleasant order. Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay.

Camp hosts were terrific...very accomadating. The campground itself, although clean, was extremely overcrowded.

We only stayed 1 night. We pulled in late, but the campground was clean. quiet, and we accessed our site easily. We had our grand kids and they had a nice time playing in the playground area. The staff was friendly and efficient getting us checked in.

Needs grass at sites. Very pleasant personnel and facilities are nice.
Jul 27, 2013
Helpful staff (it was our first night in a RV), but this is a stopover not a destination.
Jul 26, 2013
Packed in like sardines and the sewer hookups have obstructions in them. We were told we would have to cut our hose attachment to fit the opening.
Jul 26, 2013
Our site did not fit our rig. Had a hard time getting in and out. People had to move vehicles to allow for this. Dirty site. Trash and cigarette butts everywhere we could not wait to leave.
Jul 25, 2013
We had a good stay in Avila. It is close to many activities. The workers and other campers there were friendly.

A major disappointment; this campground is NOT KOA quality. Reminiscent of a depression era camp,the space was nearly impossible to pull our rig into. Our neighbor's trailer to the rear was 3" away from ours; the truck parked next to our slideout was less than 1'. The bathroom showers had lukewarm water and were dirty. This was the most expensive KOA we have visited and the most disappointing.

Loved the location near Avila Beach
Jul 24, 2013
Nice facilities but dusty dirty sites, bins overflowing when we arrived. Attitude of staff very unfriendly. Aggressive notices all over campground - " you are being videos in games room, we will come after you if anything is damaged, if room is left in a mess it will be closed the next day" Etc. Showers dirty. A disgrace to KOA. Make me think twice before staying at KOA again.

Small and cramped but nice, quiet park. Short drive to beach and Pismo sights. Wast in and out to freeway. Nice weather and nice people.

first spot was not that good moved to another spot with no problem and it was much better campground was clean and quit would stay again
Jul 22, 2013
Worse campground I have ever visited. Abandoned shacks, bad interior roads, filthy and the the restrooms are disgusting. They refused to honor the KOA 10% discount as well. The dumps are in bad locations and require lengthy sewer runs. Tiny sites. No where near level. Owners hand out lists of fines ranging from $25 to $350 and are so rude. Avoid this place...

Spaces are extremely narrow and cramped. Not enough room in front of RV to park your tow vehicle. Convenient location, friendly staff.

Great staff and clean and quiet campground. Really nice amenities!

We were in a site with our trailer which would not take our truck, so it had to be parked outside in an unsecured dirt lot. My handicapped sister rented your cabin which had open DeCon boxes by the cooking utensils. The bed was bad, with no mattress pad, just an old blanket with holes. No hangers, no remote (remember she's handicapped!) frying pan was disgusting!!! I have photos to submit to y

Nice place to spend a few days. Great bike trail to Avila beach and nice pool and hot tub.
Jul 20, 2013
Overall a good campground. I didn't much like the long list of rules I was given when I got there- not very welcoming. Internet service was good and the staff were pleasant.
Jul 20, 2013
Grounds could be nicer. Love the trail.
