Campground Reviews

Friendly staff, fun and clean camp ground. This place has a little store for everything you might have forgot to pack and only 15 minutes away from Kmart in case they don't have what you left behind. We are definitely coming back....thinking about one of those cute cabins for next time!

The deluxe cabin was more than I expected. It had a stove, small fridge and a microwave.The kitchen was well stocked with toaster, coffee maker, dishes pots and pans. They even provided pot holders and dish towels. Even the primitive cabins had a swap cooler and electricity. My family had noting but complements about their cabins.

It was a nice KOA, but our space was very small & both bathrooms were way too many stairs to climb every time!

Nice mountain campground. Quiet and showers clean. No fenced dog area.

this was a short overnight trip. we didn't go swim or play on the fun stuff. the staff was super helpful and friendly. This is a very steep campground. lots of hills and gravel roads. we were on motorcycles. Let the staff know when leading a motorcycle to the campsite to go a bit faster. momentum helps get us up the hills better. thank you.

My family and I always like to stay at KOA and for many years we were satisfied. This time we were dissapointed, this campsite doesn't have enough activities for the kids.Is not ADA and my Mom is handicap. Bathrooms have a lot of stairs and too far from the cabins.No street lights. Garbish is no pick up by the staff, so overnight raccoons opened the bags and that produced more flies.

We had a wonderful time at the Santa Margarita KOA!! I would recommend it to anyone with young kids and teenagers alike!

The staff is very nice, friendly and helpful. The grounds are well maintained and suits couples, groups as well as people with kids or dogs. Beautiful surroundings and easy to find.

We have stayed here for over 12 years on and off .. Camp sites are in great condition .. Very clean and quite .. Hike to lake is only 1/2 mile or less .. Great location ..

We only stayed overnight and go in late so we did not get to see much. The gentleman at the front desk was quite helpful and perfect for the job. We did get lost trying to find Estrada as it is not very well marked and we were tired. You've done a great job maintaining the grounds even in this wicked drought.

The bathroom was only cleaned, trashed emptied once during my stay.

Staff were friendly and a lot of activities for the kids over Memorial Day weekend. Had my trailer with a full hook up site so didn't have to use the bathroom facilities. They were quite a walk to get to them and didn't feel there were enough toilet and shower stalls to accommodate a full camp ground. Area is very hilly so don't bother bringing your bikes. Don't mind the dirt sites.

I met Billy and Bobby goat. That was one of the most memorable parts of the visit. The atmosphere was excellent. The wifi could have been better. The shower head wasn't the best. The night time bbq and star gazing was awesome!

Our kids had a wonderful time with the pool and the games. We always enjoy our stay at this KOA
May 26, 2015
Grassy areas for tent sites would be a big plus.. This KOA was too dusty.
May 26, 2015

Really disappointed that camp sites were so close together. With no privacy. There were other campers right above me. I would not come back to this KOA.

Thank you for your kind comments. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. We're so sorry that you lost your ring. We will continue to look for it in Cabin 16 where you were registered and in Cabin 14, as you suggested.

Beautiful! Love the location for easy exploration of Morro Bay, Atascadero, Paso Robles and San Simeon.
May 11, 2015
Fantastic!

We had a great stay. Staff was friendly. The kids had a blast on jumping pillow. Only critique is to have trash cans emptied on weekend..so campers have place to empty trash. By deluxe cabins,cans were full on Friday & didn't have much room to empty trash. Overall, great stay!!

Very clean campground, hot showers and clean bathrooms. Neighbors were loud after 10 (wish there was a nightly patrol). Kids complained that wifi sucked, and pool was freezing. However I liked the place and the staff were friendly
May 11, 2015
We had a wonderful time and we will definitely be coming back. All of the staff members were just amazing.

Lovely campground with terracing. Friendly, helpful proprietor. Only negative was cleanliness of restrooms: they weren't cleaned the whole week we were there.

Bathrooms need to be updated or at least cleaned regularly, the laundry washers and dryers need to be replaced and the route through the campsites needs to be graveled and oiled or better yet paved.

One of our favorite KOA's to visit. Wonderful area that is close to the beach, wineries and the lake. They have a great staff and the campground is well maintained. We will be returning again soon.

Great and friendly staff.

Customer Service and Management were great to work with. Just a pre warning...some of the hills are steep and hard to pull trailers up if you are pulling a trailer and do not have 4 wheel drive. We ran into this problem and saw several others challenged with the same problem while we stayed. Other than that...we had a great time!
Apr 28, 2015
Had a great time!!!
