Very good

Way too expensive for what the park provides. As always office people were great. But would stay somewhere else next time.

The pool was heated and spa was hot yes! the park was neat hosts and people were friendly and great geo. location. The only mild negative is that it is nestled right next to the 101 freeway and traffic can be heard most of the time.

A very nice lady helped with my reservation. My only complaint is that I was not told there were several sites available on the row I wanted . The question, "would you like a wide space?" would be very helpful. Our 21' TT has a very deep slide and a wider space would have allowed for a sitting area outside the door, a place for the table, a space to park in. Our stay was enjoyable otherwise.

Nice location. Campground and bathrooms were kept neat; as was the pool and spa.

the bathrooms need help all the garbage cans were filled to the brim even after the 3o clock supposed clean up and some stalls had no paper for seats or tissue paper . My husband said it took awhile to get hot water, and only stayed lukewarm.

The pool was heated. Not overly busy. Great sites.

We really liked this koa site. Our 2 girls liked the pool and club house. Hopefully the shuffleboard is fixed by the next time we go back.

very nice office staff-Cathy moved us to a different site and was so nice about it. Off season is the best time to stay there. Love the new fences offering a bit of privacy between the sites.

We thought the ocean would have been in view. The freeway noise was high. I know we could have taken a closer look at the map to see these things. The facility itself was pretty clean. The flower beds needed to have weeds pulled.

Booked a one-night stay, motorhome with a tow vehicle. Placed in a site that was barely long enough for motorhome. Was moved after discussion, but told that all sites had been booked. No one else came in that evening, so the move could have been done without hoopla. Desk attendant either was not trained properly, or just did not want to be bothered with the change.

This was our first stay at a KOA. The kids (8, 6, & 2) really enjoyed it. Since the pool was cold and the game room options were too old for them, that left the playground. The manager said it was "dated" but they managed to have fun with it. We enjoyed Avila Valley Farms across the street and the close proximity to the beach.

Nice quite place to stay, the improvements they are doing add a nice touch.

Site very tight, could not use awning - too many lights on all night by the pool area - dog area too small - and this KOA is overpriced.

Great location. Clean campground and restrooms. Good base for exploring Pismo Beach, Hearst Castle, Elephant Seas, etc.!

It was great, quiet, small and the staff was quite friendly and helpful. The only thing I would have liked to have seen was the bathrooms being cleaned more often. Even though the door said they were cleaned from 3-4, when we entered at 4:30 or 5pm I could tell they had not been cleaned. Other than that, which is not that big of a deal in my opinion, I enjoyed staying here and I will again.

Since the fences were installed tighter camping area but more privacy. Too close to the freeway our site was trucks kept me awake a lot, camp hosts were excellent

We had a wonderful stay at the Avila KOA. The grounds were beautiful we just felt that the spaces were a little cramped our trailer it was a little too long for the space we were assigned which we ended up fitting, but it just felt really tight! Wish they would've really looked at our length and put us in a longer space!
Feb 17, 2015
The spaces are really small, really dificult to park your trailer and car. We were glad that we had a grass area, the old playground should be replace for something bigger and more things to do on it. The pool was good but the chairs were very old. We loved the bike trail to the beach, we'll most likely stay again bc of the location but not bc of the campground.

Staff was friendly and location was clean. But sites were very narrow and not as long as they stated. The camper behind us was 4 feet into our site so his could fit. I try to go with KOA because they are usually kid friendly and have decent playgrounds. This playground was very old and made out of wood which gives splinters. Not very safe for little kids.
Feb 17, 2015
Location is great although noisy, being right by freeway. Campground is "so-so".
Feb 17, 2015
Have had a better than good experience with KOA. But this particular KOA was dirty, small and in need of significant repairs and care. The only truly redeeming qualities were location and it had a pool/spa. Could be a great place with proper attention and maintenance. The staff seemed nice but nice doesn't always get the job done.
Feb 16, 2015
This KOA is clean, friendly and accommodating. We have stayed hereang times and will continue to come back.
Feb 15, 2015
The host was super friendly and helpful. Nice all the way around.
Feb 14, 2015
For a one night stay,it was ok. Located under route 101 it is noisy, but it's location was also it's attraction to us after twisting and winding all day down the Pacific Coast Highway. Do not think it would be my choice for a long term stay, but it was nice for our overnight.

We like this campground very much and have been here often. But the pool has not worked for several months, and now the jacuzzi is out of order for several weeks already. That makes it very unattractive to us and we will not recommend it to others. These need to be repaired, and it's a feature we pay for at this place.

Great staff and great accomodation (laundry, grounds, etc). A little noisy (hwy 101) and cool as a result of local terrain. I'll come back as the local towns are great and the KOA is centrally located.
Jan 29, 2015
we had a great time! enjoyed riding the rental bikes to the Beach! hope to come again someday!
Jan 28, 2015
The threat of big fines is scary, makes one not want to stay there, sites are small and crowded in...
Jan 27, 2015
I have stayed there before, and returned just as happy as the last time

Very nice place, a little Hwy noise, very large bathroom and showers were a plus.

People very nice and location is good, Loved the landscape But this park needs to be renovated badly, The play ground, the bathrooms and shower and the pool was not in service because the heater broke! The last day we were there the water main broke on the side of park we were on so we had no water! They were nice enough to refund us for that day.
Jan 20, 2015
Water shut off for repairs. Showers need work tiles missing. Pool and spa not working.

Infustructer (electric and water fine). But, the place needs serious upgrades from their cabins to the game room. Plus, there is a stench from the septic system. We will not go back.

Great place to stay with the whole family. The staff are wonderful! We love that the hot springs are next to the camp. Cant wait to come back :)
Jan 10, 2015
Perfect location. Close to Avila Valley Barn, Walking trails, and just a short drive to the beach. Also very clean and quiet. Will definitely be coming back.

I rented this camp site for my aging father, and he was very comfortable. The weekend breakfast was an added bonus. Thank you.
Jan 08, 2015
Centrally located between Avila beach community and Shell and Pismo beach communities. Need bikes or scooters to get places, which is fine for us. Clean environment. Nice and friendly workers. Fun bike/walking path .problem with this particular week we went was the pool/spa was closed. We wanted the jacuzzi at night as there is no night life near by Oh well. We will be back because of the proximit

Had a great stay! Employees very nice! Will return soon!
