best KOA in America, clean with friendly people and a pool! I will stay here again.

Loved it. Even though the lake was low the river tubbing was fun. Been coming here for 20 years. Love this KOA

The staff was so friendly, the campground was well kept and very kid friendly! My kids had a blast and we got to stay in the awesome safari tent! They had a blast and are looking forward to doing this again soon!

The staff is very nice and helpful. Store prices are a bit high, but not terrible. Pool was ice cold, definitely a plus in this heat. Great KOA.

I didn't get the guy's name but he was working on Saturday afternoon around 1:00 p.m. He was such a nice guy and gave us superb service. This KOA was nice it had a nice pool and our site was great. We have no complaints. Thanks KOA staff you guys are great.

Overall Great stay. Very accommodating to bikers. Staff was amazing, friendly and very helpful when I came to directions and local eats. Clean Restrooms and decent showers. The camp sites for tents are very roomie, plenty of space for more than one tent on each site. I am looking forward to spending next summer there.

Stayed 3 nights in a tent w/electric/water. Took advantage of weekend activities: ice cream social, movie night, & pancake breakfast. Staff really courteous, friendly, & professional. Unfortunately, laundry facilities had a clogged pipe, so we had to drive to Lake Isabella to do laundry. Also, bathrooms were invaded by beetles & the AC didn't seem to work. Kids loved the pool, bikes & park.

I enjoyed my stay at this KOA. It was very clean and all of the staff was genuinely friendly. We got free ice cream on Friday evening and Saturday there was relay races and a water balloon toss for the kids in the evening and a movie night under the stars with popcorn and cotton candy. The splash zone was the kids favorite part! I would definitely recommend this KOA to family and friends.

Our family had a great time at camp KOA. They have a pool that is very clean a game room and a kids park along with other fun activities. They have free ice cream for the kids along with a movie night and on sunday we got free pancakes. They also are dog friendly. The campsite also has a little bar for the adults. An outside kitchen with a microwave so you can cook a great meal.

I was very disappointed in the so call delux tent. The floor is plastic material with no carpet cover. Everything is cover in dirt and dusty bed was cover in plastic. The floor boards creaks and buckled due to the thin plywood use with insufficient support structure. The beds are uncomfortable and squeaks all night. The panels over the windows slaps against the tents wall makes a lot of noise.

First time staying at KOA. The kids had amazing time with all the activities and the movie night!! Clean and friendly environment

I liked the showers, bathrooms and electric hook up. I wish the spaces between each site were bigger. ;)

I give this campsite 5 stars because despite the rainy weather and bugs that migrated during our first night the hostess kept the campsite clean. They had activities like ice cream, pancakes & marathon for the kids. They also have clean restrooms and showers. This place is perfect for families with kids. if you want to rough it you can drive out to the lake and river and go hiking its not too far

The bathrooms were gross. The shower area was in a puddle. During our stay there was a bug infestation, mating season in the bathroom and it appeared that management was not too concerned about it. Other than the filth in the bathroom, it was a chill campground.

Great service and clean facilities. We loved the movie night and pancake breakfast.

The box elder bugs were a little gross, but that's not your fault. Great activities for the kids there!
Jul 13, 2015
I liked the complimentary pancakes. Everyone was nice too.
Jul 07, 2015
Too many people staying up after 10 and being loud! Restrooms were broken and always leaking urine onto the floor. A coike of spaces had way too many people camping on them
Jul 06, 2015
This is our 9th year coming and our group keeps getting bigger every time. However, I would definitely avoid booking during a holiday weekend in the future. The campground was way too packed.
Jul 05, 2015
Excellent staff and service! Tent sites are a bit close to the road, but we enjoyed the stay. It would be nice if quiet hours were enforced - we finally had to confront the adjacent campsite after 12am when they wouldn't quiet down!

We enjoyed the site.grandkids loved the pool and splash zone. Nature for kids to explore. Pancake bkfst. great, the butterfly was quite cute☺.Trail of 1000 trees was so beautiful. Only disappointment was the lake,but hey, that's on Mother Nature. The staff was friendly and was hot,will rent cabin next time😊

On busy weekends should pay more attention to bathrooms with its needs and cleaning. Love the place we go there at least twice a year. Definetely will recommend it.

Very nice campground

Noisy night because so close to the road. But nice activities and good staff.
Jun 02, 2015
Campground was well maintained, clean and staff was very friendly. Only downside was some noisy neighbors talking till late into the night. I was very surprised to see the dog pen area for off-leash potty breaks, but would be better with some grass.

Great customer service, clean facilities, and love Saturday Luau dinner and activities and playground

The lake Isabella KOA is a great place to stay with family and friends.

Perfect place to camp with young kids! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The campground was clean and just the right size. Our kids loved the playground, movie night, and Sunday morning pancake breakfast.

Keep up the good work I like that it's clean an kept up

We stayed in a primitive campsite. We did not like how the sites were right next to the road. We could hear consistent loud road noise all throughout the night. Some grass or mulch or anything on the ground to cover all the dusty dirt that we had to set our tent up on would have been nice. We were however VERY pleased with the kindness of the girl at check-in and with showers/bathrooms/pool.

Restrooms and showers old and not clean... People working there very kind and friendly, Nice bar, we enjoyed a drink at the bar and talk with the barman who is very friendly.
Apr 07, 2015
The staff was great. Grounds where very clean. Wonderful amenities. Very well kept. Spots where a bit small, but we'd stay there again.

Nice area, good facilities and the showers were clean. Well Done!

Thank you very much. We enjoyed it very much!!!

Very nice staff, play area/VB court nice, pool lovely. Tent spots quite noisy as they are next to the main highway.
Mar 30, 2015
I was not aware this place was catered to children and older folks. If you are into that style of camping, this place is great!! If not, however, you may want to search around for a location that fits your needs. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, unfortunately though, the scene was not what I was expecting.

It was an awesome KOA to stay at. Great scenery and very tranquil. Me and my Doberman had a really good time staying here over the weekend. Also, great staff.

We were excited until arrival and saw the conditions. The laundry room has 3 washers and dryers which only the staff was allowed to use, and the remainder of the time it was locked with a phoney "out of order"on the door. The "game room" was locked also disallowing entry; a deal breaker for my teenage son. Bathrooms were filthy and Wi-Fi didn't work. VERY POOR!!!!!!

Wonderful stay wonderful staff!

Clean! The lady at the desk was so nice and extremely helpful! I think her name was Megan. Would differently come back!
