Our only complaint is that we had no television for three days. We understood that we wouldn't have cable but there is also no antenna reception there.

Enjoyed stay, not crazy about bathrooms. Looks like getting some TLC that it needs but has potential and looks like heading towards being very nice

We had a group of 5 families with toddlers. All of the group were beginning campers and we stayed in the cabins and deluxe cabins. They were perfect for us and the splash pad, playground & entire Kampground & staff were perfect! Thanks KOA!

Too many people staying up after 10 and being loud! Restrooms were broken and always leaking urine onto the floor. A coike of spaces had way too many people camping on them

Great little place its unfortunate that the lake is getting smaller. I would recommend marketing this location to the off road community, Atv's ect The lake is a few miles away to have a vehicle other than just your RV

This is our 9th year coming and our group keeps getting bigger every time. However, I would definitely avoid booking during a holiday weekend in the future. The campground was way too packed.

Bathrooms needed a little work at times but over all we had a great stay.
Jul 06, 2015
The owners and staff were very helpful and friendly. The owners are very hands on. The whole park was kept very clean even during a busy holiday weekend. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Excellent staff and service! Tent sites are a bit close to the road, but we enjoyed the stay. It would be nice if quiet hours were enforced - we finally had to confront the adjacent campsite after 12am when they wouldn't quiet down!

The area doesn't have much to offer.

Nice KOA Park & we loved the campers Kitchen; we used every day while staying in 4-person cabin. Bathrooms need updating & screen door added to bathrooms. A ceiling fan/light fixture & heavier window curtain on back window to help/w keeping cabin cooler. Requested cabin screen door repair, which was completed in timely manner. Staff, was helpful & friendly/w directions to places of interest. Rec

Not what we expected. Trip was based on the Lake that was practically dry. Host didn't mention this prior to booking. Also not mentioned is the pool is used for people not staying there. Futon needs to be replaced, you can feel the coils. On site store is stocked with items you really need.

This was our 2nd year visiting, and we have decided to make this place our annual end of the school year camping destination for our family! Thank you so much! We look forward to seeing you again next year!

I would like to thank your for such a wonderful stay at your campground. My husband and I enjoyed the clean and well kept grounds, the beautiful full shade trees that provided our site with a wonderful reprieve from the sun and the refreshing pool! Your staff was very polite, helpful and courteous as well! We will definately be back!! Thanks so much!!

It was so hot. Loved the pancakes. Staff was friendly. Common areas could have been cleaner. The kabins were not equipped with pots, we were surprised.
Jun 29, 2015
We enjoyed the site.grandkids loved the pool and splash zone. Nature for kids to explore. Pancake bkfst. great, the butterfly was quite cute☺.Trail of 1000 trees was so beautiful. Only disappointment was the lake,but hey, that's on Mother Nature. The staff was friendly and was hot,will rent cabin next time😊

The campground is lovely and well maintained. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed the ice cream social and pancake breakfast. I thought the movie and camp craft were a nice addition to the weekend. Our group was a large family reunion, and the staff of this KOA really went out of their way to accommodate even the most difficult members of the group

We have been staying at this koa for at least 8 years never been to another koa or privately owned camp ground that the hosts are as involved as Brian and Kim

It was dirty and there was trash left out everywhere. There empty beer bottles out everywhere, it was not as advertised.
Jun 29, 2015
On busy weekends should pay more attention to bathrooms with its needs and cleaning. Love the place we go there at least twice a year. Definetely will recommend it.
Jun 26, 2015
Was disappointed, no place to fish close by, the pool wasn't heated. Roads need to be paved Other than that nice place to relax, kept Staff was nice very talkative and informative. The store was clean. Loved that ice was sold on the site. The sites where cleaned shortly after the tenant had left. Loved the idea of being able to rent the cabins if you don't want to pull your trailer up there.

We had a couple concerns. 2 groups of people were smoking weed. It was uncomfortable to be around. I am not sure if that is allowed but it has me concerned. Our family has been there many times aND I hope they aren't lowering their standards. Also, they used to spray the restrooms down daily. It was really dirty all weekend. Love them, just feel like things are getting laxidasical.


That is not allowed, next time let one of the yellow shirt know and we will take care of it. AS to the restrooms, I will talk with our weekend maintenance about this. Thank you for the information it is always welcome and helpful.

Great Cabin, Great fire ring, Great stuff.

The Playground is unsafe an dirty. Some wrecks (really!) are on the KG and the Waste is mostly on the Street behind. It smells extremly, so i think this was longer there than a few days....

We had a great time. Some of our group enjoyed the pool all day Sunday and the other 1/2 enjoyed their trip to the river. Saturday The kids loved the movies, water activities provided and the character pancakes Sunday morning. The staff was friendly, helpful and very kind when they had to tell us to keep it down. The only thing I hoped for was more trees & shade.
Jun 17, 2015
Maybe the trash pick up should be more often - saw rats. The shower facilities fair. water bib for hook up needed replaced - leaked. For the daily rate s/b cable included.
Jun 16, 2015
Everything was great. The only changes would be to have 50 amp service to be able to use A/C and maybe satellite/cable/television.
Jun 16, 2015
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Lake Isabella KOA! The Sponge Bob Movie and cotton candy on Saturday night was a huge hit with our kids, they loved the banana bikes too. We stayed in a deluxe cabin and had so much fun, we will be back soon! Our only issue was the pool, it was very very cold and not really swimmable, but kids still had fun! Thanks!!!

Nice place. Only showers etc. could be better.

Very nice campground

Hand rails and ramp in bad need of sealing do to the splinters. Kitchen faucet stuck on one side makes it extremely hard to wash and rinse dishes.Towel rack in bathroom would fly off the wall while taking your towel off.Check lights above bed they have been handled to roughly and could cause a short . Shower faucet didn't work properly. But we did enjoy are stay there and would come back. :)

Noisy night because so close to the road. But nice activities and good staff.
Jun 02, 2015
Campground was well maintained, clean and staff was very friendly. Only downside was some noisy neighbors talking till late into the night. I was very surprised to see the dog pen area for off-leash potty breaks, but would be better with some grass.
