A bit too much noise from the bar, which spoilt an otherwise nice stay.

Only linens for 2 Persons provided instead of 4. The heating was broken. It was really dirty and the guy at the reception was unfriendly.

The staff was friendly and the campground was clean but the dry dusty area wasn't what we found to be fun. The wind was brutal so we left a day early.

LOVED the facility but the Lake itself was a disappointment. Already recommended to family members!

I think this is a lovely campground. The people that run it are very accommodating and helpful. It's a great place for kids as eel. My kids loved the water area, the bikes,playground and pool. It is the perfect spot for a campground. It even has a pub onsite. THe sites are big and roomy and we had a great 4 days there. I will be returning many more times.

Area nice but first time when I pay for 30 service I'm asked to pay extra for the use of my Air conditioning. Camp ground was not managed at all. We have lots more to say but we will not.

Due to car rental issues I had to revamp this last vacation. Thus, with no advance notice 8 days earlier than my reservation dates. The staff was most sympathetic about my car rental 'issues' and accommodated me beautifully. I fully intend to return to Kern River KOA and spend a few days with them.

Very friendly staff really enjoyed talking to all that we met. Clean facility

Everything went well into 10:30 pm and a group of young men with their kids showed up. I heard the m f words at least 1oo times in the next hour and a half.Also thought was a smoke free enviroment.They smoked all night and morning too.We also thought camp site on lake ,not so. It was 10 miles away.

Had zero issues and a wonderful time. Trail of a Hundred Giants is roughly an hour away. Tent site with power and water, quiet and clean. Two day stay, will return and trust KOA

Least supervised KOA that we've visited. Never saw employees anywhere except office. People in cabin behind us spent the afternoon shooting at tin cans with an air rifle and then left a burning campfire when they checked out. We had to alert office to come out and do something about the fire.
Apr 11, 2014
The cabin was nice but there was no tv
Apr 02, 2014
It was a great place to stay, clean and well organized. I only wish we had asked for a different campsite as they seemed to bunch campers right next to each other when the rest of the camp was empty for the weekend. Otherwise, our stay was very pleasant and we are planning to return in the near future.
Apr 02, 2014
another great weekend they always have something going on

Nice place. We needed a last stop on our way home from a two week trip and had driven past Lake Isabella before. It turned out to be a very nice way to end our trip
Apr 01, 2014
Everything worked great for an evening arrival and early departure. We would've liked slightly earlier store hours for a hot cup of coffee before departure in the morning.

staff was friendly and helpful. Location was convenient. We passed through this location both coming and going. One nit to pick: The mattresses in every KOA Kamping Kabin are far too lightweight. I sure wish there was more substance to them!

This is my first camping trip and I am very much exited planning for my next camping trip in KOA. The location is great with all ameneties.
Mar 31, 2014
staff was very helpful and friendly.

Easy to find location. Smaller KOA but no shortage of amenities. Wish they didn't put us next to another spot when there were only two of us on our row (no one checked in the day after also). Bathrooms were clean. Staff were friendly.

The cabin was clean, mattress was comfortable, especially liked it that I could have my two dogs and wasn't charged for them. help was friendly the two negatives: bathrooms way too far from cabins, need atleast one more. Store didn't open until 9AM. couldn't get any coffee, had to leave premisis to buy it.

We loved the place. I only gave it a 7 because the quite time was not strictly enforced.We have camped many times and know that it gets loud but at our 2nd night new campers arrived after midnight and started campfire and drinking. I was hoping that one of the staff would have come around to tell them to be quiet. I came out of our Deluxe Tent at 2:30 am to tell them to keep it down.

One of the most unique KOA's we have stayed at. Site was clean and raked when we arrived. The fire pit had been cleaned out. Site was nearly level. Drive in and out very scenic. Loved the saloon as well.

Great staff

Just passing through. Is a bell a site is getting a bit tired.
Mar 11, 2014
The staff were friendly, the bar was fun, there was a great area to run the dog, the camp was close to other activities and within walking distance of a great restaurant. The internet connection was sketchy--but not a big deal considering everything else.
Mar 11, 2014
Lake isapuddle was non existent due to drought. But the staff made the experience memerable and it was my first time but it be the last time I will stay at KOA
Mar 09, 2014

Mar 05, 2014

The Kitchen needs some love. Only one burner works....

Came in late and staff was friendly and courteous, but I really don't like the idea of a pub being onsite. Hwy 178 from campground in to Bakersfield was very twisty and rough to drive a 36' 5th wheel...we won't be back.
Feb 19, 2014
it was well kept. only issue was they advertised movie night and pancakes on sunday. Neither was done. Good place to stay tho and will return
