Very quiet, super friendly owners. Store was nicely stocked. Cabin was clean, bathrooms were clean, though a bit outdated. But, it's a campground, so we weren't expecting the Four Seasons. One caveat, if you are looking at the map, you get the false impression that the area is flat and there are direct paths to the playground, bathhouses, etc., this is not the case. There are some hills and stairs

Peaceful experience,and staff was very friendly, and helpful! I would come back and let my family and friends in on this amazing spot.

What a delightful stay in an absolutely beautiful little cabin! We really appreciated the full size stove and refrigerator -- along with a layout that handled many people easily. Nicely decorated -- and spotlessly cleaned. Camp personnel were all topnotch. What a GREAT experience!

Rock roads make it difficult to pull trailers up the hills and to back into the sites. But they did accommodate us by using a tractor to put our trailer in thesite.

This campground is a hidden gem!! I loved the yurt we had, plenty of room and the site was nice and spacious. We will definitely be back!

Everything was perfect! Five young women stayed in a Deluxe Cabin and had the perfect birthday party. LOVE the jumping pillow!!

It was perfect for our needs!

I think there have been many improvements since our last stay. Hopefully many more will come in the future. One item of concern is that some of the KOA trucks that roam the roads inside the park...could use to go slower.

We only stayed 2 nights but everything was more than satisfactory. Very friendly host!

We had a great time. It would be nice to have a TV and Wi fi signal. business still must go on even while on vacation

We had a great stay. The staff was very helpful, and this location is ideally situated for easy access to San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach, and Avila Beach. We'll be back!

The water isn't good and the fire wood is expensive and the quantity also small

Meandering hillside layout to the cabins and camp spots allow for some good views and privacy in some areas. Feels more like actual mountain camping than an RV park. Very friendly and accommodating staff.

We love this KOA! It's local to us and a great getaway from home. Super accommodating to our needs. We will be returning!

It was very nice, private cabin, nice quite area but still close to nearby attractions. The only thing, the air conditioning unit was full of dirt and dust and when we turned the fan on it blew dirt all over our belongings.

This was our second stay at the Santa Margarita KOA. We had a wonderful time. We stayed in a hilltop cabin and loved it. Sunset on our porch every night was beautiful. We also really enjoyed Avila Valley Barn. We can't wait to visit this KOA again!

It was alright, my cabin was near a very steep drop off (cliff) kind of dangerous when you have a two year old I am not sure why they gave me that spot (my daughter was with me when I checked in) when there was very few people in the campground. Would have been fine if the little one wasn't there.

The sanitation of the bathrooms/showers, grounds, & cabins were so bad that we complained about the conditions to the staff. Response was at best tepid, we explained that there were unsanitary conditions which needed attention, including either human or animal fecal piles next to the entrance way of the bathrooms and that the they needed cleaning. "We'll look into it." St Margarita KOA = NO!!

Restrooms were very difficult to get to for an older person like me. Internet connection was shakey. Lots of flies during the day. We reserved a tent site with electricity but there were none available when we arrived.

Our family loved our stay. The location was perfect since it was across from the playground and jumping pillow. The kids had a great time in the pool and the grounds were very well kept. We only had an issue one night - there was a concert the Saturday of our stay and around 3 in the morning we were woken up by drunk concert goers who made a lot of noise for about an hour. Otherwise a great time.

Beside the construction debris@mt site&store closing to early it served its purpose. (Map needs updating)
