Cabin Reviews

The Pismo KOA is in a great location-close to both Avila beach and Pismo. The pool and hot tube are nice. The major downside is just how cramped the RVs and cars are squeezed into such tight parking spots. The service was fine.

Arrived after hours and found the reservation was not correct...had made reservations for a Deluxe Cabin that sleeps 4 with a bathroom. Was given a studio cabin with one bed...had to find arrangements at a local hotel for 2 of the 4. When discussed with the managers the next morning all that was said was it was the websites fault and there was nothing they could do about it. Full price charged.

We had our family reunion and most of the family stayed at this KOA. The cabins are very nice and clean, as well as the whole park. The pool and spa are great and all the kids loved it because it is heated and they could swim at night. The trailer spaces are big and the staff is very welcoming. There were a lot of us and the accommodations were perfect. I will be coming back again. Thank you

Cabin was very clean with ample room. Park was a bit tight but well kept. Pool was crystal clear as was the hot tub. Play area was also clean.

Spa was dirty with lots of kids. There was a sign that no kids could enter spa. Laundry room was filthy!

Note that the playground appears to be under construction. Other than that, great time, had a lot of fun.

Hot water, shower, beds, fridge and mini kitchen. Clean and quiet and close enough to everything!

We enjoyed visiting Avila/Pismo Beaches/SLO for the weekend. Stayed at A KOA Kabin (S-3) for two nights. All went very well until dark. A streetlight near our Kabin at KOA beams bright light thru our Kabin windows/curtains (no blinds). The manager said there's nothing they can do about it. We didn't get a single good night's sleep. (We finally got our good night's sleep - back at our home).

Loved the cabin and peaceful setting of the site-nice and quiet and close to the beach via the Bob Jones trail. Easy check-in and check-out!!

Great location, nice office & bathroom. cons: strong smell of sewage, wastewater all over the asphalt upon departure, terrible night sleep on poor quality mattress. No directions for chair sleeper set up (had to figure out in middle of night, mattress better than bed's). Old food residue along counter edges. Strong odor in room. Fridge motor is loud at night.

Fantastic location, 3 miles from Avila beach. Managers Dave & Lisa do a awesome breakfast on weekends. Just a fun place to be with great host.

Good location and walking path to Bob Jones beach. Overall comfortable accommodations. What could be improved: Bed was a bit too soft, the heater was noisy, a sink in the bathroom would've been nice.

Way over priced. If you can't provide hot water or sometimes no water at all. No towels, no maid service, nothing available to clean your self, no trash bags you shouldn't have the right to charge your guest 250.00 per night !! Dirty facility out dated. Pool heater broken. No bathrooms at pool area. Owners very rude. Location is on the corner of a busy street. Would never go back.

We stayed in a single cabin and had a great time. It was small, but it had everything we needed. The room was clean and the shower was hot. The couple that managed the camp were friendly, helpful and made great pancakes! It's close to the beaches of Pismo. The only drawback was how close it is to the freeway, but we were too busy having a good time to care. We will be back..and bring friend

Great cabin; nice & helpful hosts. Really enjoyed my stay.

We had a Yoga Retreat at the camp and the staff was very helpful. They went the extra mile by opening up the community room early and insuring that every thing was nice. The cabins were in excellent shape and very clean. We will be back!

The staff are very friendly. It was nice. Park is clean and cute. Close to great beaches.

Good location for going to Avala & Pismo area. There is a nice bike path to the beach near by. RV spaces are small and the KOA is next to Highway 101. There are lots of modular home that make it feel like a trailer park.

Description of the cabin did not meet reality. There was a bathroom yet no sink so we used kitchen sink for bathroom needs. An important detail for some to make informed decision. Though we had just made reservations the night before I think they could have e-mailed us that there would be road construction outside KOA. It would have been nice to have blinds in unit to decrease light at night!

The Studio Deluxe is great for 2 people not 3- 4 . The mattress was stained ? otherwise an OK place .

Breakfast on Saturday & Sunday was a nice touch

Overall I found KOA at Avila/Pismo very disappointing. We purchased the largest cabin available with a kitchen and it didn't even come with a cutting board. I asked the Office if they had a cutting board I could use and they looked at me like I had three heads! In addition, the playground was horrible for my child and the pool was not heated so we couldn't swim. I would never stay there again.

Very friendly and helpful staff. The location is great, but a little attention on the cabin furnishings would be great such as the kitchen rugs which needed washing and slightly stained throw pillows. Missed not having an outdoor table, chairs and BQ.Overall we had a great time. Thank you.

Enjoyed all the surrounding activities and especially the convenient KOA location!
Aug 04, 2014
The site was too small and too close each other. The cabin was not maintained. I had to stay with spiders. And whoever does housekeeping, don'ttip at all. Bad job.

I booked a studio cabin for me and two of my friends to attend an event in Arroyo Grande. We were worried that the chair cots might be too small but they were not too small at all. The little cabin was clean and very comfortable for the three of us, the staff was friendly and I would stay here again. I have already recommended the cabins to other friends.

It was nice and kids loved the cabin with loft. Drain in bathtub needed to be unclogged and game room needs major updating.
Jul 25, 2014
The campground was crowded. Trash was overflowing. Pool was very cold but they said it was heated. Office closed before their promised hours.
Jul 15, 2014
We rented a small cabin. The campground and staff were great!
