I love this KOA and the staff is awesome and very friendly! We stayed in a cabin for our first time and the only negative thing was the mattress on the double bed was fairly thin so the bed was hard as it is on a would board frame. Everything else however was wonderful!!!

Wish the pool was heated. Wish there was a bounce pillow and a hot tub.

We rented cabin #76 - it was absolutely perfect for our group. We loved our pancake breakfast in Sunday morning and our kids enjoyed the playground and pool also. We have stayed at many koa's and thus is one of the best !

We LOVED our stay here. It was the first time we took our young sons camping and they can't wait to again. They loved the splash pad, the pool, the horse ride, and especially the playground. The staff was super nice there was so much free food during hoe-down weekend we barely had to cook.Our cabin was perfect for us. It had AC and could fit a pack n play for our baby even with the futon open.

My husband and I have never stayed at a KOA before and were worried about crowds. Turns out, we worried for nothing and had an absolutely fantastic time! Great folks all around, thanks, we will definitely be back.

Despite having drank the day away, it was real nice to get away to max and relax. Real calm and real quaint. The old lady and I enjoyed the stay and the staff was real helpful. Will be coming back soon.

Great time, helpful staff, and plenty to keep the kids busy. Just wish it was closer to water, but understandable with the terrible drought. We will be back!

The playground is very nice and the pool has a section for little kids. Perfect for families.

Nice water playground for kids. The pub was a nice feature and my wife and I enjoyed the wings and pizza. They had a huge bug problem (box elder bugs) around the restrooms/showers; they were inside as well. One of the lights in our Kabin did not work and was not fixed during our stay. The pet area is fenced in which is a plus for us as we always have our dogs with us.

The campground was a good one, with plenty of shade and a friendly staff. Amenities helped make our vacation to the Sequoia National Forest convenient and comfortable. Thank you KOA Lake Isabella for providing a clean, air conditioned camper cabin and microwave oven.

The hosts clearly take a lot of pride in providing all campers with a great experience. The free pancake breakfast, ice cream social, and movie night were great perks! The campers' kitchen was excellent, store was well stocked, staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the pool had an attached kiddie pool which was a huge hit with me and my young boys. The playground was great, with lots to do!

Our recent stay at this KOA was fantastic! All of the employees were kind, helpful, and were always working around the property to keep it clean and comfortable. It was a wonderful family vacation and we found the level of camping just right for us. This KOA has a large, clean cooking area, shady level spots, and we had a great time at the ice cream social. Thanks Cushman family!

First time camper here. My Wife & I enjoyed our stay in the cabin. Plan on returning in September for the Ho Down.
Jul 29, 2015
This was our first stay at any koa. We are hooked!!! It was awesome. I posted many pics on my Facebook and several local friends now want to go. We had so much fun at the campground we didn't even leave the first day to see any local sights. No need to leave so much fun to be had at the camp by itself. The kabins are simply the best!!! You get the whole camping experience. Loved it!!!
Jul 26, 2015
It was really nice, the atmosphere was great and the cabin and cooking areas are really well equipped. Staff was friendly and helpful
Jul 24, 2015
It was a nice campground. Bathrooms centrally located. Clean pool. Kabin was clean, however the ac did not work very well. We would come back.

We had a horrible stay. We slept with hundreds of bugs in our cabin. We kept waking up as bugs were landing on our skin all night long. This KOA campground clearly has a bug infestation. I was swatting bugs off my body when I was in the shower. It was disgusting! At night the cockroaches also came out. This used to be my favorite place to stay in Lake Isabella. Very disappointing!
Jul 21, 2015
great people they really know how to take care of their customers.we will go back !!
Jul 21, 2015
The KOA was awesome! It was sad that Lake Isabella was so low. We would definitely stay at a KOA in the future!!
Jul 20, 2015
My family and I had a great first time visit! We will be be visiting KOA at least once or twice a year! We will also be bringing along family and friends for sure. Thank you to great staff and Bryan for special Bday pancake for our son and the gentleman who spelled out HBD Christopher with pepperoni on his pizza. Thank you all again!

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!

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!

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
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 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.
