Campground Reviews

Jul 21, 2013
Our Kottage was great but where to park was not clear. We loved the splash pad, we used it everyday of our stay! The ice cream social was very nice :-) Great place to camp with kids!!! We will return!

My only complain is that the trash & recycle accumulated for days bringing flies to our campsite also the bathroom was not clean early in the morning when every ones need to shower and use the restrooms, no paper, trashcans full, you need more personal to take care of these things. The rest was ok.

Had a great stay for the second year in a row. Staff was always courteous and friendly. They took care of issues that were brought up during our stay immediately. Staff made us feel right at home. We had friendly and helpful neighbors as well.

Friendly staff. Kids enjoyed the free ice cream & movie night.

The people/staff were nice, friendly, and helpful. However, there were a few minor items that needed attention and they didn't seem too concerned about. They need a portable vacuum cleaner to vacuum the little gnat-type bugs out of the lampshade so they don't fall onto the tables, yuck! They also need to replace broken light bulbs, just for a "we care" look to the cabins.

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.
Jul 08, 2013
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!

Great activities to keep the kids busy. Very friendly/ helpful staff

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.
Jul 07, 2013
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!!!!
Jul 07, 2013
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!!
Jul 05, 2013
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.
Jul 01, 2013
A nice, basic KOA.
Jul 01, 2013
The best staff possible... Marriot hotels would be impressed
Jul 01, 2013
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.
