Campground Reviews

Love it. We have already recommended it to our friends.

Very hot and dry when we were there but peaceful and beautiful. Restrooms were clean and nice, beautiful pool and easy access to coast and wine tasting right in Santa Margarita!

Cabin was so nice and clean. I definitely come back again.

We came from Shasta that was beautiful, Margarita was more expensive for a smallest, a not that nice space. We will try another the next time.

MY FAMILY AND I HAD A GREAT TIME AT THE KOA IN SANTA MARGARITA!

Bathrooms needs major repairs and upgrades. Pool is peeling needs resurfacing, really like the fact they have a shallow section for the babies. Cabins could use a through cleaning, Campground is very dusty. Glad there was a mini fridge.

We stayed in a deluxe cabin and it really was deluxe. It was our first "glamping" trip as a family and even though we had all the comforts of home, it was nice to not have TV and computers to occupy us. We had a really great time playing games together and sitting around the fire.

So we stayed in a cabin and it was nice our daughters loved the stay. It wad peaceful and quiet at night. During th day we went to the pools and went on a hayride around the camp site. It was beautiful I can't wait to go back again. Next year.

We were only there one night, but at check in we were given the wrong yurt and it took a couple tries to find the right location. In the end it was fixed and we had an enjoyable night.

I was so scared when I stayed there, because of bears. They didn't give a warning about bears. I just read a notice about bears on a restroom door. I think that they should have explained there might be bears when I asked to change my tent site. That night, I saw two bears!!! They were just 5m apart from my tent. They dig out trash bins. I heard bears started to appear a week ago later.

We did not stay after looking at the site the road was to steep and the site was to far from the restroom also the campsite was to dusty we never unpacked

I just joined KOA and I am loving it!! This Kampground was a little hilly but that was ok with us!!

I stayed in cabin 3. We loved the whole atmosphere and what not. I had two problem that can easily be changed. We had a few black ants which isn't a big deal but they become annoying. Second, the carpet on the loft needs to big shampooed. It had lots of stains that grossed me out. Again something that can easily be changed. Over all we loved it and would go back!

My family had a great time staying here. It was our first experience at a KOA camp and we would definitely come again!
Jul 04, 2015
Great experience! Clean cabins, clean restrooms, and superior staff!
Jul 04, 2015
Well ran KOA. We stayed two nights, which was too short. My kids enjoyed the pool and jumping pillow. The cabin was perfect. Already gonna plan next trip.

We loved everything about it.

This is an awesome campground. Close to Hearst Castle and the truly exciting Zip Line at San Margarita. We had a lot of fun.

Great place to spend a weekend or week. we have our family reunion every year and everyone loves the place but most important the staff. The staff there goes out of their way to make your stay the most memorable. Thanks to everyone at the KOA for your help and support during our last family reunion. See you all next year
Jun 29, 2015
Starting from the Staff : The staff pretty helpful, professional and I personally experience a great time here with my family and my wife Family Reunion. The location of the Kampground is perfect, amenities accordingly to the environment are perfect. I will definitely comeback and recommended it to friends and family.

We absolutely loved our stay and can't wait to plan our next trip here! Clean, kid friendly and FUN!
Jun 29, 2015
It's always nice....
Jun 29, 2015
Stayed in a cabin & it was clean as well as the bathrooms. Very nice facility. Staff friendly.
Jun 29, 2015
Absolutely great! However I would change the internet resorvations to include what campsite number was reserved and offer a local and AAA discount.
Jun 28, 2015
Belle situation, mais loin de tout : à réserver aux amoureux de la nature ! Alerte OURS en cours mais prise un peu à la légère par les responsables du camping (beaucoup plus par les rangers du state park voisin...). Eau de qualité limite, piscine avec un système de filtration bricolé, hygiène des sanitaires plutôt douteuse...
Jun 28, 2015
The owner is rude and disrespectful. The path walking from an upper tent site to the bath house is dangerous.
Jun 27, 2015
Der KOA Campground ist sehr gut in die Landschaft eingebettet.Die Spielplätze für Kinder weitläufig. Die Sanitären Anlagen sind etwas Renovierungsbedürftig aber sauber. Danke für diesen netten Platz.
Jun 25, 2015
Other than a bouncy pillow not your typical KOA. Staff was hardly there. During our 3 night stay bathrooms never cleaned or restocked with supplies. Also signage needs to be changed - states beware of Bears, although rare they are sometimes seen. The last 2 nights they were out destroying the recycle bins. When I asked a staff member they said oh, they have a bear that regularly comes here!
Jun 25, 2015
Charming location on hillside. It was hot & dry time of year - cooler would be much better. Enjoyed the Frisbee golf, farm animals nearby & nice staff.
Jun 24, 2015
The camp staff were marvelous! Our suggestion would be that because of how spread out the camp is and how difficult it is to walk the roads, it would be great if the staff would perhaps have set times where they would come pick up garbage or deliver ice.

I tell everyone about your wonderful camp site! Thank you for a lovely stay!
Jun 22, 2015
Wonderful secluded tent site, friendly hosts. Clean and well maintained facilities. Perfect stay!
Jun 22, 2015
Pool was very dirty, there were no hay rides, no movie night, no rec room, not very many activities at all. This was very disappointing especially for Father's Day weekend.
Jun 22, 2015
Great 2 Weeks - Looking forward to coming back next year. Read my blog post here: http://theamericanwinetrail.com/?p=280
Jun 22, 2015
Wonderful and caring staff...we will be coming again!!
Jun 22, 2015
Great Staff
Jun 22, 2015
Loved all the activities for kids, the playground and jump pillow, being surrounded by nature, a beautiful view that kept us outside. A great KOA!
Jun 22, 2015
We loved the remote campsite (old 88)! Aside from uncontrolled dust and slippery roads walking to/from the restroom, we were all very happy with it. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, well beyond what would have reasonably been expected.
Jun 22, 2015
Our kids had a blast. Clean, well stocked bathrooms. overall a good experience
Jun 22, 2015
Stayed in a basic cabin, it was nice but the first night we arrived it had been closed up so it was unbearable because it was so hot inside. The staff is very friendly and the grounds are kept clean. Definitely love the clean restrooms :)
Jun 21, 2015
The staff were really nice and everything was great organiced. The camping area is great and the location wonderful.
Jun 20, 2015
Very friendly staff, clean cabins, and the kids loved the jumping pillow!!
Jun 19, 2015
Cleanliness of Campground was not up to KOA standards. Bathroom facilities were not clean; Trash cans over full, smell was unacceptable, lots of flies, paper towel dispenser in women's room jammed, outdoor trash cans full, our site was not clean and other unoccupied sites were not cleaned. Limited staffing tried to do best they could.
Jun 18, 2015
Great location but pool could use some work i.e. paint coming off. Jumping pillow was lots of fun but playground could use an upgrade. Our deluxe cabin was very nice.
Jun 18, 2015
Very clean campsite; easy to register; beautiful location.
