This is an intimate, well-located, well maintained camp. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable, enjoyed the meals offered in the camp. Downside is the location to Hwy 101 = loud traffic at all hours. And campsites do not have fire rings, which I always enjoy when camping.

The $5 breakfast was very nice, the facilities were clean, the people were helpful and friendly. The only challenge was that the sites are very small and we literally just barely fit with our 26ft 5th wheel. There were some larger sites but otherwise assigned.

Many problems with the bathrooms. Very poor design. Lake on floor outside shower. Cheek by jowl, even more than most KOAs. Nice people run it and met nice folks. We did not care for this KOA.

We stayed for 3 nights. On a whole it was an enjoyable stay. Clean restrooms,and plenty to do at the campground. The sites are a bit on the small size. The staff was very helpful. I would return.

This campground is in a beautiful location but way too cramped! The website photos are very misleading.

Nice! Suggestions: big trucks need to park in lot outside campground. Kids in Jacuzzi under age, some with parents sitting around & not watching & some under 14 siblings were only child responsible for younger children who don't belong in water without adult supervision. People not picking up dog poop. Overall We did enjoy our stay & would come back. Thx

This was our second stay, it is centrally located between pismo and morro bay. We like the quick access to both areas but the real plus is Avila beach itself. The bike path is great for running, walking and for viewing nature in particular waterfowl. The facilities were clean, well kept and the staff was friendly.

The employees were nice but the restroom are in horible shap at least the mens room was, 1 shower wet everthing else but you, 2 shower was back up as if the septic was full, 3 shower the hand valves was not secure by its components and the shower walls were not grouted. I know that camping is roughing it but my family and I were just passing through from a 600mile drive from klammth beach

Restrooms were not cleaned in a timely maner.

This KOA, overcharge you for store items, the grounds are dirty, the bathrooms are not clean, and when you tell someone who works there they are still not cleaned. Way overpriced compared to other KOA's for what you get. We will not stay there again.

This is a nice little KOA - but the spaces are small, even by SoCal standards. However, it is clean and the staff, like KOAs in general, was very nice. Also, really close to Avila Beach.

Made reservations two weeks in advance , last space available. We were able to get additional night, although we had to change location, which we seen several other RV 'a changing spaces also. Served breakfast Sat. & Sun. Which was good, reasonable and no miss. Park is clean and people are friendly. We'll go back again.

This was our 2nd visit to Avilla KOA.There were relatively low cost upkeep issues that had they been done, would have made our stay better. The bathroom fan in G was so clogged with debre & dust the gunk was hanging from the fan. Yuck. When we arrived after check in time,our cabin was not clean. There was hair all over the bathroom, the bunk bed sheets were dirty and the carpet wasn't vacuumed.

Motor home broke down night before I called and cancelled Thursday night. Was charged for Friday night because of late cancellation. Very disappointed I was charged even with me cancelling

It was quite at night. Very family oriented. We have a motorhome and all the hook ups worked .The people on the office gave us all the info we need. Very busy site, good location. We pick a site with no one on the back it worked fine. They have a spot for dog walking but people still took the dogs to the "bathroom" on the kids area. We would go back.

Sites are very small & too close to each other. We have a small RV & a small truck & there was no room gor our truck in our site. The "heated" pool was chilly.We only stayed 1 nite passing through so didn't use any facilities. Stuck our heads in the rec room & everything was beat up looking.No campfires allowed, only charcol. The Sat morning breakfast was nice. Overpriced.

Check in took a long time and gave us no direction. 3 days later, we were told that we were parked to far back and had to move our trailer. No camp fires and unhappy/unfriendsly staff and other campers. No thanks!

I almost never rate poorly, but this place is tiny and used to be private. That means it has a nice pool and spa, but the sites are tiny. Many of the visitors bought in before KOA and will tell you about it. Avila is great, but maybe go somewhere else this time. I love KOA, but this one not so much.

The only reason we gave two stats to this kampground is because the front office clerk was fair enough to give us refund for early check out. Otherwise this kampground is too crowded, sites are extremely small. It looks more like rv storage than a camping area. In addition, it is located next to the highway so it feels like you are literary sleeping on the road.

The staff was very friendly and It is close to Avila Beach and San Luis Obispo. the pool was nice and the families also. The bathrooms were old and not clean, no privacy and some of the guests were rude like moving out at 6 in the morning with their loud RV. $50 is a lot to spend for what you get.
