Cutest ever. Decor is a must see. Drive in and out is stunning. Highly recommend this nostalgic camp site.

We stayed in a pull through site in our travel trailer. The sites are large and shaded with a nice dog walk area and dog off leash area. All staff members were very nice and helpful. There is a restaurant within walking distance that was very nice with good food and fair prices and a full bar.

My first stay at a KOA. It's nice, good location. Proprietors were GREAT! We loved FREE ICE CREAM NIGHT!!!!. Pull-thru & hookups were easy, trailer/cabin areas clean, pool/spa very clean, kitchen area roomy. The restrooms/showers need remodeling and upgrades, but overall, worth the stay. I would recommend staying here.

We loved our stay, this was one of the best kid friendly KOA's we've been to. The ice cream night, pancake breakfast and kids movie in the park we're great. The only thing that I would say that needed improvement was the pallet deck by our site. It was missing slats and had nails popping up. Not a big deal at all, just wouldn't want a kid to twist an ankle walking through there. Overall great KOA

Good size sites. Very friendly and helpful staff. Bathrooms were clean and showers were hot and lots of water pressure. Easy to get to from Bakersfield on our way to Death Valley. It was right on our path.

Could use cable as no local over the air. To keep dust down gravel or pave roads and sites. Enjoyed both the Ice Cream and Pancake social

Trash overflowing stinking with flies everywhere. Staff said it would be picked up tues or wed morning but never did Saloon right in front of pool. Our water was shut off around 9 am with checkout at 11 am

Dirty, dusty, very unkept landscaping. Bathroom (mens) was full of cob webs, only one of two showers working. I guess this is their off season but they could tidy up a bit.

Very friendly staff and great sites with lots of shade.

We have stayed at the Lake Isabella KOA several times. Was a little disapointed that the splash pad was not working for our grand kids. This is one of the main reasons we stay at KOA there is stuff for kids to do.

Perfect for families- the pool was great!

This area is very dry and desert like...sand everywhere including the campsite surface...all that sand came in the rv...area was hot and not impressive...the Lake has virtually no shade anywhere and even the Park office is drab.

We did not like lake isabella and the campground was just dirt and not very well kept.
Aug 14, 2017
when we booked our trip which was the very first trip for our new travel trailer we thought that it being at a KOA campground that the pull through R.V spots and the roads in the campground would be paved but they were not . our brand new travel trailer was full of dirt because every vehicle that drove into the campground made a huge dust cloud and that is how we had to camp for 2 days, not happy

Very nice, they treat their customers very well, the facility is clean and uncluttered. Their customers were also polite, well mannered and quiet ð

Very tent "unfriendly " sites. Next to impossible to drive tent stakes into the ground!
Aug 11, 2017
Not a good representation of KOA. Everything had to be done off site , from breakfast to any entertaining.
Aug 11, 2017
Would be nice if there was a shuttle to rafting company and lake. Now you have to take your RV with you the whole time

We really enjoyed our 2 day stay and only wish it was longer....had to leave the camp ground for a few hrs on Saturday to go site seeing and again whole day Sunday,the whole 27 of us...and our stuff were just everywhere in our unlock tents and cabins,and no one ever came to me to complain about a missing phone or missing wallet...we really appreciate how committed the staff at the camp grounds are

I stayed here two years ago and had a great time- looked forward to this trip. It was very disappointing. The whole place was dirty, trash all over, pool seemed really dirty, and the whole place seemed unkept. I won't go back a third time.

Nice campground but it's not close to the Sequoia National Forrest as KOA says. Courtney was very nice & refunded our stay & helped us find a campground very close to the entrance!! Thank You Courtney!!!

The ManagerTammy was very nice and helpful.

Very tired and grubby KOA Employees grumpy or totally ignoring you Pool filthy, very high conc of chlorine (the childrens eyes were SO bloodshot every time they'd been in excrement in pool all day untill I insisted on them cleaning it. There were NO actions undertaken after the poo incident. Poo scraped over poolfloor left brown smear and NO extra cleaning action Washing machines did not clean

It was super clean and the staff so nice and friendly. Highly recommend the place
Jul 26, 2017
We didn't like the fact that people not staying at the campground were allowed to use the pool. It was completely overtaken by kids. The pool was filthy as well.
Jul 26, 2017
Very nice. Lots to do for the kids and adults too. Clean

run down, busy, not much staff interaction with the guests unless initiated , surface clean, small, dirty scum ring around pool that had names written in it, but it did have it's good points too. Loved the kitchen area! Loved the activities even though food was given to the locals so they ran out for their guests. Summer had a great personality and was friendly, but needs more staff support.
