We visited in the first month of November and the camp was quiet and very clean. All the amenities were available (except the pool) and the staff was friendly. our cabin was clean, well kept and all the furnishings were immaculate. Will certainly visit this camp again in the near future.

Very relaxing and enjoyable we will be staying there again

shower area could be cleaner,cobwebs & bugs in evening. During the weekend people were not keeping dogs on leashes. we appreciate the tree trim in order to hook up to utilities.

Private, well-spaced campsites. Beautiful views. My car battery died and the campground manager came by within 3 minutes and charged it up so I could get on my way.

Two friends and I stayed three days in one of the deluxe cabins. After working out a few kinks, everything went smoothly and we had a great time. The people who run this KOA were accommodating to our needs. The location is ideal for central coast wine tasting, hot springs, and restaurants from Avila Beach to Paso Robles.

Nice, quiet, nice people, clean, dust but that's because of the weather. We have been staying at Santa Margarita KOA for 4 years and will keep staying as long as we can.

It was peaceful, clean, and the staff was quite helpful. Loved the way the property is developed. Unfortunately, we will be selling our travel trailer soon. Helen

Very friendly staff, clean cabins and bathrooms. Provided us with a BBQ grill that helped us eat like kings . I'll definitely be returning!

Love everything about your place except the dusty dry dirt. Our camper gets filled with it and our white dogs go home filthy.

It's the time of year when there are fewer campers. We felt we had the campground pretty much to ourselves. The staff here are wonderful! A great stay in our favorite tent site!
Oct 19, 2013
We have stayed there 3 years in a row and each time has been a memorable time.
Oct 18, 2013
Everything was clean. I was a little to far from the rest rooms but it was quite and met some real nice people. Plan to return but staying in cabin!

I loved this site. beautiful. the gentleman in charge was outstanding. but arriving at night, the directions were sketchy at best. would have stayed here longer but for time. very, very nice.

Hospitality of the camp hosts was great. First time here, but already planning another visit.

Lovely oak trees, a friendly staff and deer on the hilltops in the morning. What more could you ask for?

Great team, but they have to advise me that there was a concert in the evening

Too many semi-permanent trailers at the park for my liking.

I rented a cabin that sleeps 8, there were 7 adults in my party. We were comfortable and managed well with only 1 bathroom. Our cabin was clean, well kept, with comfortable beds. Staff is friendly and the campgrounds are very clean. My group will certainly be back again. Great location if attending Sunset Magazine Savor the Central Coast at Santa Margarita Ranch every October.

Very long walk from campsite to the bathroom!
Sep 27, 2013
Lovely location, lots of nice showers well placed around the site so you were never far from a block. Helpful staff and climate enough to walk to the lakes.

Not your average KOA. Lots of hills, trees, etc. Much evidence of maintenance and upgrading. Negative = residents & workers drive around continually on the dusty dirt roads!

We stayed in a new location and was a great spot. Now I can't tell you which one or you will rent it out and I will not be able too! Love it when I find a new location that pleases my husband and expands our camping opportunities. Great going KOA!!

The campground had a number of fun activities for families. My family really enjoyed the cabin. The Cabin and the restrooms were clean. Check in and out was easy. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The place is great and the people are very helpful and friend.

So Much Fun! Labor Day weekend had so many activities, we felt like we were in a family camp movie. Stayed in a log cabin and loved it. The staff was fantastic. Everything we needed was right there. Check out the video on the KOA website with Dylan and his crew... you will see what I mean! Thanks to all. See you soon!

We arrived and inquired about our reserved space and we were directed to a site that was to small for my 31ft 5th wheel with 2 slides. We requested another site and were told that only 3 sites with 30 amp electric was avalible. Our entire 5 day stay none of the sites they stated that were reserved were ever occupied Pool occupied by non campground kids who paid $3.00 each to swim.

The campground was not as expected. We expected a grass area somewhere, it was very hilly to walk to the bathrooms or other areas and the website makes it seem the fishing is by the KOA rather than off-site. Because we are older, walking up and down hilly areas is difficult and our son has allergies so the dirt was not optimal due to dust. We are unlikely to stay there again.

Hidden gem. Nice and secluded with lots of amenities. Only downside is having to pay extra for the pool.
Sep 10, 2013
Great place, nice nice campground, if you can put up with the many flys. Bring a screened in room!
Sep 08, 2013
We had a nice level site with plenty of room. There was no cable TV but plenty of other stuff to do, particularly for kids. Loved the big flock of wild turkeys!
