The staff was very nice and helpful. They did everything they could to accomodate our needs. It was a wonderful stay.

Needs outside showers badly

Everything was in working order. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were ok, not great. It's a great location if you're heading to Lake Isabella. If you're in a camp/tent site, you may not be able to get your tent spikes to go into the ground. It seemed like the ground was just an inch or so of dirt on top of rock/cement. I would use this KOA again for sure, though.

We had a fabulous time! Although there was an awful storm they let us stay in the club house for a few hours and Ben offered to upgrade to a cabin for a low rate. They were very helpful with hiking and where to catch the river. Ill be going back in the future!

Was our first time staying at a KOA site - we had a great stay, and one person in our group had never been camping before. She loves camping now! Nice big camp site to easily fit the 6 of us and our 2 cars. Clean restrooms/showers, very friendly staff, nice pool, great movie night - just an all around enjoyable time!

We liked the large level campsites and family-friendly feel. The only negative was the sand (instead of grass) dog-walking area that had broken glass littered about.

I thought everyone in the front office was very nice and helpful. Lots of activities for the kids! The only thing I wished was that the camp grounds were not so close together. Luckily one of the neighbors was really nice but it could have gone either way.

Love this place! My family had an AMAZING time! We will definitely be back!

We were disappointed to find out that this site was nowhere near Lake Isabella. We had to drive 15 miles to the lake, which was really low and come to find out they had just drained the lake for research. I was expecting tons of trees and forest being that they are so close to Sequoia, and we came to a desert. Friendly staff bad area to camp. Lots of foreigners swimming in speedos...beware.

The place was clean and organized. Staff was kind and helpful. It was exactly what they said they would be. Thank you

Stay was short but great and staff was very friendly and helpful. I would suggest restrooms get cleaned twice a day instead of once a day. Would definitely come back. My kids had a blast and loved the weekend activities.

The managers Kim and Brian were so kind to us when our car broke down and we were stranded for days at the site. The campground was a great place to stay. We loved the pool, ice cream, movie night, and pancake breakfast.

Placed next to a youth camp who stayed up yelling until past midnight even though there were other sites available. The washrooms and showers were beyond disgusting. The pool was cloudy which is an obvious sign of not being properly cleaned in months. I will never, ever stay here again and will be sure to let others know not to as well.

It was very hot, not enough trees. And the night staff kept harrassing our party. I tought it was totally uncall for. But day crew was very helpful.

By far, this has been one of the worst KOA camps i have been to. We have a family reunion every year with 60-70 people. We were harassed and monitored for 3 days about too much laughing from the children at 10pm or after. If u have a strict curfew for young people you should have let us know ahead of time. It's pretty hard to keep 25 teenagers and small children quiet when its not even bed time.

This KOA is very nice and enjoyed our stay!

The bathrooms need a little TLC. They need to install some fans in the bathroom.

The grounds & site were nothing like I expected.I booked the site which said it was great for groups up to 8 ppl but when I arrived w friends,we couldn't believe the size of the site, nor the location.It was not big enough for us or our dogs.We were so disappointed,we drove around the lake hoping to find a site-luckily we did, NOT at the KOA.I hoped for a refund,but they said no.Very unfortunate.

We went with 7 families. We had a great time. The activities for the kids were fun. The accomodations of the camping were awsome. The owners with a great smile always. The best camping ever. Great place! We were very happy!!!

Always a pleasure to stay here and bring friends and family. This is such a family friendly place.

Nice campground and facilities. Great for large groups. Excellent camper kitchen, pool, store etc. nice staff. Bathrooms could use more frequent cleaning and more units. Long lines during busy times. Campground 20 minutes at least from most activities.

Great place to spend quality time with your family. Can't wait to return to enjoy more memories!

Wonderful people - love the custom pancakes! NOTE: Your web site should caution Kampers coming from the West that they should avoid CA 155. It's a twisty, winding, difficult road. I caused us to be hours late checking in.

Unusual place to have camp site in the mountains. Mine was nice.

Bit the best KOA I've stayed in. We stayed in a tent but it was in a patch of uneven dust, not the grassy sure advertised and the bathrooms were dirty. Good camping kitchen though.

Service Washington fine. Many unsecure detailsalgsvirksomheder ón campground: locks for access to swimming pool, lock on gate from playground to pet path, pipes on playground, very slippery around pool area (dust). Great stay and very special surroundings.

The staff was friendly and very helpful. The site was far too close to the highway and the grounds appeared more like a service yard then a campground.

The staff was great. Very understanding. Maybe they could drive their golf carts a little slower to hold the dust down. That's my only complaint. Oh, and make the wind stop blowing too.
