Cabin Reviews

My wife and I and mother in law had a great time there! We enjoyed using the pole area and traveling to 100 Giants Redwood Trees, walking the Kern River in Kernville. Plus stopping at the Mine Store in Bodfish and buying equipment for panning for Gold.

this KOA is great for couples or a whole family get away. the staff is very nice and helpful. the delux kabins are decent remember your camping. bathroom shower is nice to have. close enough to the lake to enjoy a boat or skidoo rental French gulch is where we go for that, and Joy is very nice and made us feel right at home. the weekend here is the best Fri. ice cream sat. movie sun. pancakes.

It was our first time at any KOA and we loved it. My grandkids were planning our next visit before we ever left!

Loved it and the staff. Not on lake or river but close to all the valley has to offer, ask Brian for recommendations of places and things to see. Will be back cause better facility then lake campgrounds.

The koa resort itself is fantastic and kept nice. However I noticed that throughout the day locals come into the resort and use the facilities. (Pool showers ect) even ay night. I found this to be very annoying and not fair to those that payed. And in the pool area the cement needs to have grooves in it to prevent slips. I slipped holding my infant. Thankfully neither one of us were hurt. ;)

Très bien.

My family and I stayed late July 2013. Upon check-in, the staff was very friendly. We stayed in the Deluxe cabin near the playground. The camp was very quiet and peaceful. Our cabin was ok, not very clean. The kitchen towel, sponge, placemats were dirty. The futon was gross, covered it with an extra sheet. Just little imperfections,we still had a great time and will most likely return.

The cabin we stayed in was very nice but rather hot. There was some type of fan/air conditioner unit which did not help very much. It would have been nice with the price we paid to have lines provided instead of having to bring our own. With regard to the WIFI, I would not call that having internet being logged off and loosing connection every 2 minutes. However I would still recommend it.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay here and would love to come back soon. The staff was great and for the amount of people that visit this place they did a good job of keeping the bathrooms clean. The activities for the kids were a lot of good fun. My only issue is that they only have 1 grill in the kitchen. Some guy and his steak were all in my personal space within impatient self. :-p

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!!!!

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.

As always, the staff and owners of KOA Lake Isabella are the best! The activities are fun and the location is clean.

This is our favorite campground. The grounds are always clean and there is so much to do with the family. The owners put a lot of hard work and heart into the place and it shows. Our two girls were sad to leave as we drove off after a 6 night stay, we look forward to booking our next stay. We are so grateful for this K.O.A.

You know it's a good camping trip, when the kids cry when you tell them you are leaving. The staff was fantastic, the grounds were impeccable, and we all had a wonderful time.

Friendly staff. Nice place to go & relax. Very close to Sequoia National Park & White Water Rafting spot. Restroom maintenance can certainly be improved.

The staff was extremely nice and friendly but our deluxe cabin was very hot (granted it was over 100 every day during our stay). We had the air cranked on and it took about 5 hours to cool the cabin down. We also had a TON of ants in our cabin. In our beds, on the toilet, all over the place. It felt like they were crawling on us all night. For the price we paid we wont be staying there again:(

They were very family orientated, had additional features that families appreciate. Very friendly, flexible, and provided very good service. The bathrooms tend to get dirty quickly, this is something that could be improved.

Wow!!! Greatest staff of any KOA I have ever seen. Within the first hour of staying I knew everyone and felt like I was in a five star hotel. Stayed in a cabin for a week and had a complete blast!! Clean and well laid out.

Was so happy with out cabin! Although it was a smig dirty and the carpet in the loft could be replaced I was sooooooo incredibly grateful to have a shower and a toilet!!! And although we did not have an RV I was impressed with the hookups that you provided. We will be happy to stay at your campgrounds again! And let everyone know that El Portal is an amazing restaurant.

The cabin was nice. The campground: pool area and camp kitchen good. broken games in game room, playground in disrepair, broken glass and burned remnants from fire all over pet walk area behind the play ground. Local area surrounding shows that at one time 10 or more years ago this was a nice place, and Lake Isabella was thriving. Disappointed and feel like a waste of money for brother's b-day trp

It was not very clean. The microwave and refrigerator were dirty upon our arrival. The staff was nice but not overly positive. The blinds were broken and messy. Needed painting. Bed was actually Ok and pillows were good.

I wish we would have had access to the pool. There was very little for the kids to do. They splashed a bit at the edge of the lake, but the pool would have been more fun. I suspect it's a lot more fun in the summer, but it seems like a place to stop on the way in the spring.

you guys are the best ,thank you so much for your support of vets i really appreciate it Michael Blair. I will be calling you soon its time for the derby

It was very comfortable and friendly. Had a nice area to walk the dog.

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.
