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.

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.

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.

Beautiful area near Santa Margarita Lake which is deep blue and full this Spring. Cabins are cute, clean, and spaced a nice distance away from each other for quiet and peaceful sense of nature. 30 minutes to Cal Poly! My new go to place to stay when I visit my Cal Poly child!

Well maintained, nice location, great staff.

Our cabin setting was nice. A bad problem were some of the non stick pans provided were badly damaged and should be replaced with stainless steel. HEALTH HAZARD! Also can opener was old and was hard to work. With a nice new cabin, the old worn items should be replaced. If for nothing else, health conditions.

Was really nervous about the atmosphere and ambiance of the campground before arrival BUTTT when we arrived we were all shocked at how well equipped and new the cabins are! It was perfect for my group and everyone loved it! Luxury camping at its finest ! Will be back

Graet place! We will be back. Tell Fred we said hello!

Had a great time with my family staying in a cabin. Staff was very friendly. We will be back!

We really enjoyed our stay at this KOA. Staff was very helpful and caring. My biggest concern was that the hot water took forever to warm up and then didn't last too long.

We stayed two days in a Deluxe cabin. It was too small for eight persons. I guess the maximum capacity for that cabin should be six. It was too close the the next cabin. We were almost sharing the fire ring and table space with the residents of the next cabin.

Great customer service!

First time camping and we had a great time. Thank You! For being so kind.

When we arrived and saw the play ground, jump pillow, and our cabin, my 8 year old son exclaimed "This is as good as the Legoland Hotel." The cabin and the porch swing were so fun and convenient. We also enjoyed a fire and cooked hamburgers and roasted marshmallows. We also worked on some cub scout requirements. We enjoyed our one night stay so much. We were very sad to leave.

Wonderful, considerate, camp hosts had a heater going in my cabin when I arrived, so it was nice and cozy!

I stayed with a group of 14 friends in two cabins. It was a blast! Awesome customer service and the people who helped us check in and everything were very helpful and fun!!

The staff was amazing, I believe her name was Kim she helped us with everything that we needed and more. The yurt that we stayed in was clean and warm and we had an amazing time staying there. Again Kim was amazing and generous and she deserves a raise! She was all about making sure the customer was happy and enjoyed their stayed.

Our stay was wonderful!! We chose the worst possible weekend to take a trip, there was flooding and rain the entire week before. I was worried about the conditions at your park. But we checked in with Kelly Ann and she was FANTASTIC! She eased our worries. She even drove to our cabin so we could follow her without getting lost! Cannot wait to go again during a drier month!!
Feb 20, 2017
It was amazing, nothing like what I could have ever possibly expected! And you guys provide a 'jumping pillow' that none of our friends have ever heard of before. Thank you for everything !

I loved the rolling green hills, the quiet and solitude. It was such a relief for me!
Jan 18, 2017
Great place to stay! Thanks Karen J.!!
Jan 12, 2017
We had a great time!!! We have stayed a few times already. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The only thing is the water pressure for the showers but you are in the mountains so how many showers do you need. We will definitely be back!!!
