The KOA itself is really nice. I made the mistake of going on a weekend. Incredibly crowded and I didn't sleep at all do to the 10pm noise curfew not being enforced. The baby next to us kept the entire camp awake all night and the drunk woman on the other side was puking next to MY tent and using it to hold herself up. Definitely bringing ear plugs next time.

Had a great stay! Only stayed for one night but was very relaxed by the sound of the river current and the night sky. Attendant at the front was really nice too.

The family that runs the KOA were so welcoming to us. Great camp for families and college-grads alike!

As always very friendly. It would be nice to treat the campers equal with same friendlieness and feelings. Every camper should matter the same. Not that it was racist but don'forget the campers. I think if you have in your sign heated pool, please heat the pool!!! But as always my familly and I had a lot of fun. I always recomend and I have send people to koa .

We stayed for two nights. The grounds were clean and we'll camped. My 10 and 3 year old loved the playground and movie. We will definitely be coming back next year.

We want to let you know that because of Johnny and Megan that we are hooked on coming back and trying other KOA They made us feel like we were family before we even got there on the phone. We were excited and very happy when we came into the camp. Can't wait till our next time at Lake Isabella to visit this next time we're staying longer. They were very helpful with directions and very joyable.

The campground would benefit from something other than just silty dirt. Gravel in the pads perhaps, or maybe even the road. A little grass wouldn't hurt either. All there is, is dirt. When the family went to play in the water fun area, the water smelled like sewage. Everybody had to shower and still couldn't get the smell off. When we complained, they said it was a tablet they put in. No Refun

Very clean and friendly place. Wonderful safe and family oriented. This place has everything! If you forget it...the camp store has it. Tent spots are pretty small but not too small...I've been in smaller.WE were given an upgrade to electrical tent site at no extra charge...Wow! That never happens. We were so blessed. The up grade was mainly because it was so much shadier. Love KOA

Pros: 1) Staff are very friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have a great stay. 2) Bathrooms are very clean and showers have plenty of room and hot water! Cons: 1) The campsite is on hwy 178. The tent sites are literally 50 feet from the hwy so it can be noisy from all the cars and trucks going by. All in all, however, we enjoyed our stay and would come back again.

Nous avons eu le seul emplacement en plein soleil jusqu'au soir! Aucune possibilité de garer la voiture près de la tente. Les sanitaires étaient plutôt crasseux! Et la piscine plus que "trouble"... et on a eu du bruit (musique, cris,etc) jusqu'a 23h! Bref je ne recommande pas!

This trip was neither good nor bad but just average. We won't be visiting Lake Isabella or this campsite again.

Even though it was hot in kern valley, the campgrounds were awesome. Ice cream social, pool, playground, hot showers, pizza on site, the amenities were amazing. We were about 20 minutes from the river to go swimming. Our family loved it. My kids loved mining for gold, and the pancake & sausage breakfast on Sunday morning. Thank you for am awesome time!

All the staff was amazing and courteous and professional. host family was adorable. Thank you for breakfast on sunday. Only note is the island kitchen was dirty as as a result of other families suggest to have more signs there. They left quiet a mess behind.

Everyone was very friendly. It was great how involved the staff was with the families. The pool, ice cream social, and movie night were perfect for our family

Our tent site was shaded and mostly clean. We had a great time, kids enjoyed the pool and activities. The pancakes ran out quick and we did not get any on Sunday morning. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Overall a great stay, family friendly.

it was very hot so nice to have to the pool! staff was very helpful. i wish there weren't so much road noise. i would suggest being a bit more communicative with campers about quiet hours...we had people packing up, yelling at full volume at 6 am and another group departing with headlights into our tents at 4am. Maybe some additional signage would help people remember good camping etiquette!

We had three tent sites near the pool and it worked out great. Fireworks over the lake wonderful, only short drive.
Jul 05, 2016
Your employees are very friendly. I ENJOYED THE games for the kids. I think it should be a litthe more activities for them. My family anD I had a beautiful time. Thanks we hope to see the same courtesy next year and hope to bring new family members to your camp site.

We stayed just after the Erskine fire. While we were the only tent campers there, the daytime staff was super sweet and friendly. Our biggest issues were that the bathrooms became unavailable without communication to us and weren't clean at all. The kamping kitchen was also super dirty. This could be an incredible koa with some tlc and overall cleaning.

only stayed one night, then had to leave because of the fire.

We enjoyed the campground and its amenities. The only concern we have is the bathroom/shower not having adequate drain and is often flooding.
May 31, 2016
It was amazing, from the great activities for my kids to do, to the scenery, I couldn't have asked for more.
May 23, 2016
This has been the best KOA we have stayed at. We really appreciated the Kamp Kitchen. Beautiful and open tent sites were also a positive.
