Tent Reviews

Jul 14, 2014
Our family enjoyed our two night stay at Lake Isabella KOA. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming.A little bit of grassy area, especially around the tent sites would be nice to keep some of the dust down. The restrooms could be cleaned twice a day instead of once, they were a little dirty after some time but never undesirable.

Stayed two nights with family. Enjoyed our stay. The workers there where friendly and the activities they put on for kids were great.

Nice little site. Cannot compare to other site that I have visited in the past. Restrooms needed more attention. 1out 3 showers worked properly. 1 shower stall drain didn't drain which is not sanitary.

Everything that this site offers is AWESOME! Despite the noise disturbance and invasion of our camp area by the other campers, my family and I really enjoyed our stay here! My kids loved the pool, splash zone, playground, and the activities for the kids like the relay races and the movie night. We just wish it wasn't so windy!

Great people working here, clean restroom/showers, only parking for the tents could be made closer to tent sites and putting tent area not so close to the passing highway would be nicer.

This was a fabulous KOA! They had an ice cream social and a movie night! The only problem we had was a noisy neighbor. We would definitely stay here again!

The KOA is great! There is a pool, a large kitchen, a restaurant, and bathrooms with showers. The only downside is that it is not within walking distance to anything. You can't walk to the river or lake. They are both a very short drive away though, and the staff here are amazing. Will definitely be back

The staff was so friendly. It was nice that the owners walked around to greet visitors and remind them about the nightly events. It was a very friendly environment for our dogs too which is very important to us. Thank you!

Very family friendly, a lot of activities to keep kids busy, crafts, movie night and ice cream and popcorn socials. Staff very friendly. Sites a bit dusty but we're all camping, right?! Centrally looked to Lake Isabella and Kernville.

Due to car rental issues I had to revamp this last vacation. Thus, with no advance notice 8 days earlier than my reservation dates. The staff was most sympathetic about my car rental 'issues' and accommodated me beautifully. I fully intend to return to Kern River KOA and spend a few days with them.

Everything went well into 10:30 pm and a group of young men with their kids showed up. I heard the m f words at least 1oo times in the next hour and a half.Also thought was a smoke free enviroment.They smoked all night and morning too.We also thought camp site on lake ,not so. It was 10 miles away.

Had zero issues and a wonderful time. Trail of a Hundred Giants is roughly an hour away. Tent site with power and water, quiet and clean. Two day stay, will return and trust KOA

Easy to find location. Smaller KOA but no shortage of amenities. Wish they didn't put us next to another spot when there were only two of us on our row (no one checked in the day after also). Bathrooms were clean. Staff were friendly.

We loved the place. I only gave it a 7 because the quite time was not strictly enforced.We have camped many times and know that it gets loud but at our 2nd night new campers arrived after midnight and started campfire and drinking. I was hoping that one of the staff would have come around to tell them to be quiet. I came out of our Deluxe Tent at 2:30 am to tell them to keep it down.

It was AMAZING!!! Justin, Jerald, Brian and the whole KAO team was super helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. We will stop by again next time we are going in that direction.

We enjoy a nice quiet campground and this was perfect. It was nearly empty on a Saturday and not for bad reasons because everything was quite nice. It was a bit cold out and that might have kept campers away but I bet in summer time, this place is pretty busy. Very clean restrooms, well stocked store, clean sites. We stayed in the deluxe tent which was just what we were looking for.

Campgrounds were in very good condition. The bathrooms were fairly clean, base of toilets were dirty. Hot water not always available.

Our first time here. We were unaware of how low the lake is.I feel you might put a note on your website indicating. Otherwise all was good and we did other things not lake related.

Hosts Brian and Kimberly and family are the best! We love coming to share fond memories together with our family when we camp. It's nice to know and see families enjoying their time together as well as with other like minded folks. It really is time well spent where you truly feel welcomed. Thanks for another great time. Silbas Family.

We had a great time at the Hoe Down, good food and a lot of fun games! The camp was clean and well maintained. The staff worked very hard to take care of us. Our fire pit was missing when we arrived, and even with all of the activities going on they still came down and took care of it in a timely manner.

As always our stay was fabulous. We really appreciate all you guys do and will see you again next year.

I am a member because I trust KOA to be family oriented You placed my site next to bunch of rude college student that all they did was drinking and screaming and cussing This trip was really stressful and hard We couldn't sleep almost the entire trip All the staff were super nice and helpful
Aug 26, 2013
Excellent facilities, wonderful staff, nice touch to have owner/family serve breakfast. Would have like the tent to be on grass, but not a deal-breaker and will definitely return. Thanks again!
Aug 26, 2013
This was our first time camping and they made the experience for our family a memorable one. Thank you and we can't wait to go camping again.

Not at all close to the Kern river. The ad makes it seem as you will be within walking distance to the lake and river.
Aug 20, 2013
The staff was very nice and helpful. They did everything they could to accomodate our needs. It was a wonderful stay.
