We stayed in a cabin! It was very comfortable. We walked to a farm stand that has fantastic pies, jams, roasted corn. Pool was fun too. Easy 3 mile drive to beach.

The only reason I am not giving this place a perfect score is because of the road noise. Everything else was perfect! ;-)

This was a disappointing experience. The check-in staff was curt and the long list of "don'ts" that I had to read and sign at check-in felt quite un-welcoming. My next encounter with staff was someone also telling me about something that I shouldn't do - that I wasn't doing. My inquiry about bike rental was met with a gruff response. The grounds are plain, and cramped. It was OK, not great.

Check-in was quick. Facilities were clean. Easily accessible from the freeway. It feels like camping in the mountains, but you're near the beach. The Bob Jone's Trail is 3 miles from town and a peaceful walk or bike ride. Loved the tiny house we stayed in. We'll be back.

I was not informed when I checked in that I had to turn a switch on to have access to hot water. Ice cold showers are incredibly annoying to say the least. Otherwise a nice stay.

This was my 2nd time visiting this KOA & staying in a cabin. My stay was pleasant & the staff friendly. The Bob Jones hiking trail to Avila Beach was fun; its a nice & easy trail.

The campground is in a great location, and there are nice people running the show. Plenty of activities for all ages. We will be back.

Amazing staff. Lots to do !! We need to come again for sure

Cabin great. Missed bath sink, but we signed on for studio. Should not advertise the phantom farmers market. Doesn't exist per locals.

Bathrooms could be a little cleaner and need the long mirror back I the bathrooms. Other then that it was a very nice stay. Can you bring back the coffee for members

It'a a great location, but the camp itself is nothing great. The pool is nice. However, the rest of the camp is largely just taken up by campers. Hardly any open space.

Staff was very helpful at check in and helping with getting us a different cabin when the one we originally were suppose to have was full of tree sap. They quickly gave us keys to a clean cabin.

The campground has been recently updated felt very family oriented and lots of activities for the kids and parents to enjoy. Will definitely be back next summer.

Camp sites are way too close to eachother...the mattress in the cabin needs to be upgraded
Aug 02, 2016
The campground was pretty small. My cabin had many spiders and spider webs on the ceiling, which did not please my young son. He would not sleep on the top bunk. My cabin was also next to the trash dumpster, which got very full and very stinky after the weekend! There were a couple of nights that people were in the pool past the 10pm curfew and were very loud. My son liked the movie nights.

Great cabin for my 9 year old and me. Stayed cool and was clean upon arrival. Great staff and smiles when checking in/out, also when I called for reservation. I love places that enjoy their jobs and it radiates through their body language and cheery voices--it makes for a return visit that's for sure! Thanks KOA for my son and mine's mini summer vacation!

The campground was lovely, great pool and play areas for the children The biggest problem was the congestion. Also, a lot of freeway noise in our area of the grounds.
Jul 25, 2016
We reserved 4 cabins and 4 RV spaces back in January for a family reunion July 16th through the 24th. We requested the RV spaces be next to each other and that was too difficult for your staff to accommodate. That started our week off on a sour note.

Cabin was great, clean and cheerful. Had everything we needed.
Jul 19, 2016
Reasonable rates, clean cabins, lots to due within the campground, and the weather at Avila is perfect.
Jul 18, 2016
It provided more amenities than I expected. Very clean. Had a great time.
Jul 12, 2016
Perfect location! Staff was very friendly and nice updates to the campsite! The bathrooms could use some improvements: toilets were out of order, did not flush or no lock on the door.
Jul 11, 2016
The office staff, housekeepers and the grounds man treated us very nice.We love the improvements that are being done to the camp. We hope everyone. Experiences a great time like we did .👍 /Nbl

Quiet Campground despite it being full on the 4th of July weekend, dirty outside shower floors. Need to upgrade bathroom & playroom. Spacing between front and back campers is confusing. Delux Cabin clean and has all the amenities, disappointed Corporate did not honor 10% discount for 2nd reservation. Nice almost 3 mile walki to beach.

The deluxe cabin was great. If you want a family camping experience but don't have a trailer or RV this is a perfect way to do it.
Jun 29, 2016
You guys have done a lot of work to the place very nice. Great staff. Five dollar breakfast was really tasty. Thanks
Jun 06, 2016
Stayed in the remodeled deluxe cabin. It was amazing! Nice pool, clean campgrounds, and I love that Avila Valley Barn is across the street. Will definitely be staying again soon!
Jun 06, 2016
great facility, has upgraded tremendously, close to ocean and hiking trail, will definitely stay again!

This KOA park is great for RVers, but decided to do the cabin this time. The cabins were pricey and small. The tv only had 2 channels. No sink for the bathroom, and had to use the sink in the kitchen to brush my teeth. I wont do the cabin again, but definately the RV site.
May 31, 2016
Had a wonderful time. Everyone was very polite my family friends and I. Thanks again look forward to the next trip to come.

I had requested for a late check in but when we got there and picked up our envelope at the gate our nightmare started. They had wrote the wrong cabin number so we looked around for an hour till we found out the cabin number is wrong due to the map we were given D 01 was C 01 now we try going to our cabin but someone already there. Now try to get hold of a KOA employee at 12 midnight gooood luck.
May 24, 2016
yes a little detail the lock for the bathroom don't work all other is perfect
May 17, 2016
The studio cabin was great, close to pool/playground. Tv in the unit didn't work but that was ok, because we weren't expecting one anyway! Coffee pot and dishes were nice and the propane firepit was cool
May 17, 2016
Very nice KOA campground w/all the necessities. The cabin I paid for is a bit pricey but if you take advantage of the special weekends,its a great deal. My only complaint about the cabin is that it could've been cleaned better. Floor wasn't swept & there was cobwebs on ceiling & windows..minor details.
Mar 27, 2016
The upgrades that have been done to the campground are great!

Stay was OK. The bathrooms were needing updating. The shower heads need to be replaced. The charge for the cabins/park models are too high price for what they offer, their current condition, and only allow up to 4 people. The pool area needs updating. The tv stations is lacking enough channels. Need satelite cable in park and fitness room. The park is clean, good game room, and TV room.

The cabin was great, and a great value. People treat you like family. I wish I would have stayed longer. I will be back next year, if not sooner.
Oct 25, 2015
It was wonderful, we will definitely be back!

nice and quiet

To prevent vehicles from driving the wrong direction the park thinks its a good idea to have tire spikes in the road. So if you accidentally drive the wrong way like I did then they will flatten your tires. I had to purchase all new tires after going over the spikes and it cost us over $400. Thank you KOA.

nice people, good pool, not a very outdoorsy location, nearby avila beach is great
Sep 21, 2015
This is a great little KOA. We stayed in a camping cabin for two nights. Loved the area (Avilla Beach is beautiful), the pool/spa were very relaxing, the staff that we talked to were very helpful. We will stay here again.

Love the location and the hosts this time around were fabulous! We stayed in the camping cabin studio and there were no curtains. We had no trees to block the sun and a light was right next to the main set of windows. Noticed the other studios had curtains... Good to know for next time to request a specific cabin.
Sep 21, 2015
Stove, but no matches. Some of staff uninformed bout local area, unable to tell me where to go. Good thing neighbors were quiet, felt sites were close & cramped. Decent, but not great site.
