The staff was somewhat friendly. Tammy was extremely helpful. Our biggest issue with this KOA was the lack of restrooms and showers. There were only three showers and four restrooms stalls all in only one bathroom area behind the registration desk. One of the showers in the ladies restrooms was not working the entire time we were there. The rec room was like a sauna.

there was a terrible noise in the womans restroom. Restrooms were not very clean. Friendly and enthousiastic owners and delicious pancakes on sunday morning

I would not recommend this place to an individual camping alone, particularly in a tent as this place appears to cater to groups and families first. I just felt outnumbered while here, and management appeared to be aloof about what I could share (perhaps this is acceptable in CA). Impossible to use stakes to anchor a tent due to shale below a soft surface. Received most help from European visitor.

Our stay was wonderful. Loved the activities for the kids. Not a far drive to the lake or Kern river. We did not like the bugs at night but at least they didn't bite.

This place is a must do. The people are so friendly. One of our group left tent poles at home and the lady at the front desk let us use her tent from home. Place is clean. They have ice cream night on Friday FREE movie night under the stars, just bring your chair and on Sunday the day we left it was raining so we packed up quick. They had FREE panckes that they made into minions. Grandkids loved;

The staff was awesome. Lots of activities to do. Sites are a little closer than we like. We tent and kept getting woken up by the guy snoring in his tent behind us.

Our Scout Troop has stayed here twice now. The staff is great and the pancake breakfast on Sundays helps keep our traveling costs down. We will be back again.

Really enjoyed the Camper Kitchen, saloon, and great friendly staff. Oh the pancake breakfast was a nice treat. The drought has been hard on the entire region and the staff are making the best of it.

The gentleman who checked us in was wonderful. Very kind and helpful. We opted to leave a day early due to the "lake" being nearly empty. Tried to eat at the bar/restaurant but very little food on the menu was available. Noisy tent campers nearby.

Camp Hosts and Staff were awesome. Extremely friendly and helpful. Great place to stay if your passing through the area or want to go rafting in the Kern River

Wonderful as always! Great upgrades to the camp. Playground is very nice. Cant wait for baby to use it. The only recommendation is to clean pool. It was not as clean as expected. Kids didnt mind though.

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.

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.
Apr 14, 2014
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.
