Clean, nice staff, fun little bar off the office that parents could go to at end if day a visit. Nice too many distractions so kids won't simply camp. Close to fun things. 100 Giant redwoods, Whiskey Flats Days (on Presidents' weekend each yr) ghost town, waterfalls, Isabella Lake.

Was disappointed to not have a queen size bed. I called prior to making the reservations to find out about the cabins and was told some of the cabins had queen size beds. I stated in the on line reservation the request for a queen size bed too. When I arrived I was told that none of the cabins had queen size beds. I recommend employees know the right information and it is relayed in the future.

I was unpleasantly surprised when my family and I arrived at the campsite. The internet photos are misleading and the campground is in the middle of nowhere. Store was at least 25 minutes away.

The campground was clean and well-kept. There were fun activities for kids, and the campground was definitely pet friendly. The only (minor) complaint is that the mattress in the cabins are extremely thin and uncomfortable. However, everything else about this site is pleasant and we would stay here again.

Loved the deluxe cabins! Only wish there was a BBQ. Please put in a grill!! The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful.

Campground holding birthday party with about a thousand kids. Much noise. Not what one expects after long day of driving. Would NOT stay here again.

It would be better if the koa website could have linked up to the resources at the Kern KOA, they had a neat cooking area I would have liked to use more power outlets would be good too

Customer service is excellent! This Kampground has potential - facilities are well-maintained, and the services work. The sites, however, are very much in need of landscaping... currently nothing but sand & gravel.

Very friendly helpful atmosphere lead by the hosts. Pancakes on Sunday for breakfast a really great idea. there was lots for children to do with the haunted house experience being very popular. We anjoyed our stay.

Refrigerator, Tub/shower were filthy upon my arrival. Had to claen them myself. Ceiling fans need cleaning and entire cabin (all surfaces) should be dusted and the walls and ceiling and cabinetry (all surfaces) should be scrubbed and washed. Furnace is too noisey for use so I was cold.

Very friendly staff. The Halloween weekend activities where fantastic. Thanks soo much for a great time. We look forward to coming back soon.

It was very disappointing to arrive and find out this KOA does NOT back up to Lake Isabella as is clearly shown on the map. Additionally the info on the website is also very misleading in regards to distance to the Lake. There are full grown trees where the supposed LAKE is...there hasn't been water there for a LONG time

We had a great time at Lake Isabella KOA in Sept 2012 in our 30ft RV. We were there 2 nights and used the camp as a base to visit the lake (very empty) and trail of 100 Giants. Surrounding scenery was spectacular, camp kitchen facilities were good with clean showers, laundry and a good pool. Great to have pub in the evening to provide alternative entertainment. Would go back..

The staff was great. Very understanding. Maybe they could drive their golf carts a little slower to hold the dust down. That's my only complaint. Oh, and make the wind stop blowing too.

Good site in pleasant location. No hot water in washroom/shower at time of our stay.
Oct 21, 2012
Great staff. The couple from the UK were wonderful. Nice pub. Very welcome after a long day. We tent camp and really appreciate a camping kitchen. Tent sites were a bit close to the road. We have been to other KOA that were better for tents. Nice location.

A little run down, but who cares, they have a pub! Nice dog walking paths.

I have always enjoyed my stay here but this stay was disappointing. 30-40 kids running around, in all camp sites, playing in showers for hours, no adult supervision. Kids locked all shower doors and crawled between them. waiting 45 minutes for shower.

We have stayed at KOA,s before and although the Staff was very friendly, the Kamping Kabin was horrible. When we walked in, we could tell it had not been cleaned prior to our arrival. The toilet had urine on it. The toilet and bathtub were not clean, and stained. We ended up leaving 4 nights early after finding mouse feces all over the cabin. Even on the futon, where my 2 and 4 year old had slept.
