Great place to stay, we've gone here many times. Only negative for us is the trees need to be trimmed higher in some of the pull thru spaces to accomadate newer 5th wheels with SatTV and rubber roofs.

It was a packed weekend. Good service but I wish they would talk to some of the guess about riding there quads over and over threw the park. Its not a track for you and your kids and so the dust was bad from that, if they want to have quads running around make them a track outside of camp. But other then that it was great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I apologize for this as quads and other OHV vehicles are not supposed to be ridden around the park, just ride out of park and back into park. We had some groups during your stay that we had to remind a couple times, myself and the rest of staff will better enforce the no riding around the park.

The owners are super friendly. They hosted a bunch of activities that kept the kids busy. These activities included, balloon toss, hay ride, outdoor movie night, ice-cream social, pancake breakfast. Men's bathroom needed a bit more cleaning, I felt and it needed to be stocked with soap and toilet paper more often. Some rude, annoying and inconsiderate families were staying in the cabins though.

All the staff members were very friendly, polite, courteous and helpful. The amenities were more than we expected... even the free pancakes on Sunday. Kids and Teenagers really enjoyed the pool and little kid's the water splash park and rocket launching. Not to far from the Lake, Vons Supermarket and gas stations. Highly recommend it!!! We'll definitely stay here again!

The bathrooms need a little TLC. They need to install some fans in the bathroom.

This was our 5th consecutive year going to KOA at Lake Isabella. We have seen a lot of improvements since we started visiting. The place is great, the staff and administration are always friendly. My kids love the place and we will continue coming every year.

The weather was very hot. Except for this it was great.

It's a nice place, has a good pool, VERY friendly staff and a really clean campsite. The only problem is that its really close quarters. So as long as you like your neighbor your ok. We were in spot 11 it's a back in and the sewer clogged on the last morning so we had to use the dump station, it was a mess but nothing really bad. So it's nice, good staff just close quarters.

Very friendly staff, always willing to help.

There were a couple of things. We didn't have cable which I have never been to a KOA without it. The trash was never completely dumped. Just the top layer to make the trash can close so there was always a smell. And when asked when we checked in what the movie was that evening that was playing the guy had no idea. Really? I thought that you worked there and should know!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our trash gets picked up on Thursdays and until then we keep the dumpsters at a point that campers can still use them and the lids shut.

Extremely friendly & helpful staff, and the facility is very well run. Ice cream socials, movie nights and other organized activities. Clean restrooms & showers. A great campsite, the only thing I would recommend is to keep an eye on the local temperature for your trip. It can get toasty.

The staff was so helpful even before we got there. They patiently answered all my questons and helped us have a great stay. Our cabin was so cute- loved the porch swing!!!!

The grounds & site were nothing like I expected.I booked the site which said it was great for groups up to 8 ppl but when I arrived w friends,we couldn't believe the size of the site, nor the location.It was not big enough for us or our dogs.We were so disappointed,we drove around the lake hoping to find a site-luckily we did, NOT at the KOA.I hoped for a refund,but they said no.Very unfortunate.

The campground was wonderful! Very friendly and helpful staff and the showers and bathrooms were clean! And it's very cool that they have a pool for those hot summer days!!

The campground was well cared for and was nicely decorated. The splash pad was fun for all of us. The cooking/gathering pavilion was also nice to use. The owners are wonderful people.

It was dirty and hot. Amenities are not up to par like the other KOA campgrounds I've stayed at. I would highly recommend upgrading and expanding your campsites and other amenities. Sorry, will not be coming back to this KOA.

A nice, basic KOA.

The best staff possible... Marriot hotels would be impressed

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the activities, they were all family friendly. I would like to recommend a few suggestions to the camp. More green areas needed, its a dry and hot area and green areas around camp would loose that desert feel. Your in a hot and dry environment, the dirt roads could be watered down to keep the dust down.

Campground and facilities were OK. Restrooms clean. Very dusty camping area with loose powdered dirt blowing all over. Quiet time after 10pm was not enforced. There were large groups of inconsiderate campers that made lots of noise until 11:30-midnight.

Always a pleasure to stay here and bring friends and family. This is such a family friendly place.

As always, the staff and owners of KOA Lake Isabella are the best! The activities are fun and the location is clean.

This is our favorite campground. The grounds are always clean and there is so much to do with the family. The owners put a lot of hard work and heart into the place and it shows. Our two girls were sad to leave as we drove off after a 6 night stay, we look forward to booking our next stay. We are so grateful for this K.O.A.

Nice campground and facilities. Great for large groups. Excellent camper kitchen, pool, store etc. nice staff. Bathrooms could use more frequent cleaning and more units. Long lines during busy times. Campground 20 minutes at least from most activities.
Jun 21, 2013
Very friendly staff. A lot of activities. We will be back.
Jun 21, 2013
We loved the extended hours offered for the office and the pool. After a long, hot day, the accomodating staff and clean, iviting pool was just the ticket. We will be back.

The campground is clean with fun activities for the kids. Many of the campers left for the day to go river rafting or boating on the lake. The staff is friendly also. The KOA staff need to be more diligent with enforcing campground rules. Both nights we had 2 different campground parties impose on our enjoyment: up @ 6am with kids playing & worse case was family up until 3am drinking & cursing!

We enjoyed our visit to KOA, with our grandson and nephew. The lake is close by, so the boys got to fish for the first time. The pool and water playground was their favorite. Also the pub and store is convenient for the adults, a little pricey but convenient. Always clean and nice from the grounds to the bathrooms. Polite and courteous staff. Thanks

You know it's a good camping trip, when the kids cry when you tell them you are leaving. The staff was fantastic, the grounds were impeccable, and we all had a wonderful time.
