Endroit très propre, pas trop bruyant malgré la proximité de l'autoroute. Situé près des plages. La piscine est magnifique. Seul point faible: les toilettes et les douches.

Close to Avila Beach

Friendly staff. Convenient to Avila Beach. Spaces are very tight.

Noise from 101. Staff was friendly, campground well maintained. There are just better locations

we had an absolutely wonderful experience! All the employees were gracious and welcoming! We will definitely be returning to this location again!

We were put next to the sewer and hated that but the park was full so we just went with it

We stayed here and had a great time! It was very quite, everyone was very nice and grounds were kept up. We didn't get a chance to use the pool but it looked quite refreshing. There is a great trail close by to walk with your dog or ride your bike. Very close to beach and other activities. Would definitely stay here again.

The sights are too cramped. Very hard to park a 27' 5 th wheel and park a truck. Not deep enough. The outer spots maybe better, but they put us in the middle next to a cabin that the ground was unlevel. The pool looked nice, the store was nice, they had laundry and showers. Full hookups. The pancake breakfast was good. $5.00 each. Should of been free at $64 a night.

Small clean campground but not next to beach. Three mile walk to beach.

This is a very nice campground in a great location. Spaces are tight but ok.

Great place. Friendly informative staff. A little hesitant after reading about sites being nailed to one another. Really was not that bad. Would love to stay here again! Only negative..horrible internet service!

The park his a hidden gem! The pool is huge and so clean. The staff was so lovely. They were really nice to the children at all times.

Great place but pool was green... Not sure what the problem was but it wasn't good

i little hard to get a 40 ft motorhome around in this park.

I loved it there everyone was friendly and it was well kept up , but the lady's showers flooded every time I used it and our space had cigarette butts all over it that was kind of nasty but I will return as I did enjoy my stay
Aug 18, 2015
Great location the only thing is it is very easy to inter the campground thru the exit only after hours because it is poorly lit, severe tire damage could happen
Aug 18, 2015
Park is tight, unkept, trash on the ground the whole time I was there. Some how the manage to keep it full.

We were treated well, and had friendly, courteous staff. We would heartily recommend in future. Only issue was wanting to stay 1 more day, but no reservations available.
Aug 17, 2015
This is an easy place to stop when en-route to somewhere else. The personnel were very helpful. Initially I had a problem with one of the Avila/Pismo employees but in person the people we dealt with were very pleasant and helpful.

Friendly staff, great location, and good pancake breakfast. Although the spaces are tight, it is so close to trails, the beach, and many recreational opportunities. It is just about 45 miles from our home and we have been here twice within a month.

It was a great stay. We had our grandkids and they loved it, especially the pool. Great location nice facility.
Aug 16, 2015
Marvin was a great help Thank you

Delightfull place. The proximity of the bike trail was my main interest in coming to your area and how wonderfull it was that the KOA was less than a tenth of a mile away. I really enjoyed my stay there and will be back!!!

We had very relaxing at avila/pismo beach walking & bike trail was realy nice Thank You^^^^

The pool and playground were great. Enjoyed the outdoor movies and free popcorn. The sites were way too cramped though so no privacy at all. The staff could have been friendlier.

Nice, quiet, kid friendly park. Some of the larger spaces are difficult to get into because they are so small. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Fortunately our site was at the back, viewing the playing ground, so we had some grass under our picknicktable. Some RV sites are closed in within other RV's and with very little outside space. Pool is nice. Sanitary is ok. There is a beautiful track to the beach (3 miles)and the Avila beach is very pleasant.

Great place but pool was so green it was not usable. Looked unhealthy. Other than that this is usually a great KOA very nice staff
Aug 11, 2015
(ver)ouderd sanitair en ook niet schoon. Kleine plaatsen

I have stayed at KOA in the past and they have always been great and that is what I have come to expect. This facility is old, tired, run down and not what I expect for the price and reputation of KOA. We were so disappointed that we left a day early.

We had just stayed in KOA Petaluma and toured KOA Santa Cruz and from the website we expected KOA Avila/Pismo Beach to be comparable. The sewer smell and cramped campground made it so uncomfortable to be there. We stayed inside our RV while we were there. We discovered a trolley that picked up on the corner and took us to Pismo and Avila Beach for free, very convenient. The water is awful.

I really enjoyed this KOA. It was close enough to everything that I wanted to do. I was a little concerned with the messiness of the facilities. The kids area in game room was very dirty the restrooms were cleaned once a day this facility does not allow any fires which kind of took away from the camping experience. The movie nights were awesome they even gave the kids free popcorn.

Great location and friendly staff

The places are not worth the amount charged! The site are not nice and very close to the highway!!

This was our third year to spend a week. At arrival I could tell the staff was stressed and not happy. The grounds were in bad shape and restrooms were very dirty. Only one area remained for trash. Pool was closed for a period of time during our stay. I called KOA and got little help. They told me to speak to the owner who was supposed to be in but staff would not assist in contacting her.

Thank goodness new management came when we were leaving, they seem like they will straighten the place out. However when we arrived our group was not together. The spaces were too small and crowded. Good for kids 5-10 years old. We won't be going there again.

We liked the game room area, and more specifically, the baby play room was a great feature for our family! Some opportunities for improvement were that the pool opened a bit late (10 am). Our kids wake at the crack of dawn and are ready to start playing and swimming right away when we're camping! The kids also thought the playground was a bit small.
Aug 06, 2015
Terrible. Bathrooms didn't work. Showers dirty and disgusting - even after they were "cleaned".

I have stayed at the Avila Beach KOA once or twice a year, for the past 3 years. This was my best stay so far. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed walking the trail to Avila Beach. The pool at the KOA was heated perfectly. In past visits it was often too cold to swim in comfortably. Also, there was new playground equipment which my grandchildren enjoyed immensely. Very nice stay indeed!
Aug 04, 2015
We really enjoyed the campground it was clean and very easy to get setup and pull out. Had a great time.
Aug 04, 2015
Great staff who helped me with some issues. Very attractive and well kept park... I had to leave early in the morning and was not able to dump my tanks...the sewer was clogged. It might have been helpful if the park had a separate dump station if these issues occur...

The spaces were very small, the outbuildings on the grounds quite dated and phone is rarely answered in the office. When trying to leave a message, recording indicates voice mailbox is full. In comparison to the three other campgrounds we stayed at along the central coast last week, this KOA was by far the most lackluster and disappointing.
