Had an excellent stay. Everyone was incredibly nice. Cabin was great, but the bed was extremely uncomfortable. Other than that, everything was perfect!

It was at a beautiful location with camp sites and cabins in very unique settings. Plus amenities like jumping pillow, pool and hayride were great fun for kids.

The staff was super friendly. One comment is that I think the website does not accurately reflect just how hilly the site is and how much climbing is necessary to use restrooms

Great location right next to the lake and surrounding beaches, wineries and Hearst Castle. Staff was incredibly accommodating and super friendly. Cabin was spacious and clean. We primarily used this KOA as our base camp and didn't use any of the onsite amenities besides the pool. Will definitely return. This has definitely become one of our favorite destinations.

Well the cabins were great very peaceful and people did not bother me. Airflow was difficult one window did not open and fan blew around hot air. In campsite way too much dust maybe adding hay on roads might help or the road erosion netting. Having people yelling at kids disturbs the peace and they should be reminded that people are uncomfortable when they threaten their kids with punishment

Facilities are nice and clean. Only complaint would be that it is very dusty.

Ww were in town to stay a couple of days after visiting the Avila Beach Oyster Festival. The deluxe cabins are perfect for a nice couples getaway and the grounds offer different private vantage points to enjoy your time at the campground. Whether you are there with your family or a nice couples getaway we definitely recommend the Santa Margarita KOA!

Staff was great.Our deluxe cabin was very nice and worked well for our group of six. Fun activities. Pool was warm and murky. Due to weather 106 when we got there not sure it was anything they could have done about it. Lake is nice, and we saw Canadian geese and doe with twins. Had a great lunch in Morro Bay where it was nice and cool.

The grounds were well maintained and the facilities looked new. The delux cabin was really nice and roomy with 2 queens, a loft and a fantastic view. The area is beautiful. Friendliest most helpful staff you'll ever find 😁

Love the cabin layout. The office staff and roaming field staff are very pleasant and accommodating. One inconvenience was that our two burner stove did not work. Could not cook in our kitchen other than microwave and coffee. Other than the stove not working, everything else was fantastic.

Lovely campground, sites offer plenty of space and privacy. Bathrooms were in need of some attention, but overall this is one of the nicest KOA's I've stayed in.

These folks at Santa Margarita KOA always go out of their way to make our stay a great one! Great team all around - Clint helped some folks get out of a jam when they took a trailer up the wrong road. Great team work!

Staff friendly. Grounds bad, not well maintained. Dog area was nasty with some guy in a beat up trailer staying there. Rifle practice at night, trash around the cabin. Kind of a dump.

The best camp site manager u we have ever dealt with. Helpful and goes out of their way to provide a pleasant experience. Totally 100% satisfied. God bless S.M. KOA

EVERYTHING was awesome including the awesome staff at the store. The only gripe I had was the shower water automatically going from hot to cold but the staff said they will fix that right away. So again thanx for the great weekend.

Very clean campground with nice hosts.

This campground is perfect for a quiet getaway with just enough things to do for our 6 year old. She loved the jumping pillow and the little walks around the campground. It was also an easy walk to the lake. We would go back.

I love staying at this campground. Always a great stay!
