There was some problem with electricity. However, our trailer was not one of the trailers affected. We enjoyed the campground overall. Rose Sloan

This campground is very good for families or just couples. It has a very interesting layout since it was placed on the foots of the mountains. It has great hiking up and downhill. It also has a great swimming pool to cool down. It is also .3 miles from the entrance to the lake. This was a great getaway definitely recommend to anyone specially people that are just starting to go RVing.

Great KOA, but our site was a tad bit smelly, because all of the affluent from uphill seemed to converge near our dump position.

Staff was fantastic. Plenty of activities, beautiful scenery on the drive in, close to the beach and San Luis Obispo. Our only complaint were the restrooms. We have a pop up and the Koa was at or near capacity (80 campsites)and although we were told 8 for women the guys only had 4 toilets for all trailer sites & 1 was out night 1. If $15 per night no worries but, @ $60 PN, rent some port-o-pottie

Best campground we visited during our RV experience this holiday, and we stayed on 8 of them, most KOA!

My kids enjoy the pool and jumping pad. We alway get the spots closest to the park and they are old enough now that they can go down there by themselves. Really enjoy our stay every year.

Kids had a blast, staff was super friendly. We will be back in a few weeks. Trip already booked.

Willing to help with all my needs.

We were disappointed the pool wasn't available, main reason we chose this KOA. And the space was very small, trouble backing our tow behind 28' trailer in. No shade and we had two large dogs,and when we put up our awning it almost bumped pop out on motor home next door. Camp is in a very beautiful area and all camp employees very nice and courteous.

I had a very nice stay at this campground. The entire staff was pleasant and very helpful. I can't wait to come back

I know it is ironic to complain about wifi when you are camping; but the wifi is substandard. Way substandard. Our spot could be more level. Overall..well, we are going back next week.

All the staff members we dealt with were awesome - they went out of their way to make our stay fabulous. We absolutely loved the jump pillow - great for kids of all ages. We will definitely be back :)

Very well taken care of. Friendly staff.

Kim Ann could not have been more gracious. We had been on the road for 10 hours and need a place to stay last minute. Though the website said they were full, a phone call to Kim Ann was all that was needed. " You head this way and I'll find you a spot". Wonderful staff. We will be back on our next trip south.

We enjoyed our time at the Santa Margarita KOA. There were lots of activities for the kids to do and they had a blast! It was the perfect place for a restful and relaxing spontaneous getaway!!

Great people in the office, showers were moldy smelly and really old, space we were in was set up weird with no way to use our awning. Firepit and grill were at the backend of our trailer. Very noisy with what sounded like dog fighting, and dogs barking.
Apr 22, 2017
very friendly staff with great attitudes. Resort in process of clearing up from winter rain damage but looking great!
Apr 21, 2017
The staff was kind and welcoming and helpful. It was our first family travel-trailer trip (hopefully, of many), and we loved it. Thank you!

Park was clean, very well kept

The staff at Santa Margarita KOA are all very nice and professional.The bathrooms are clean and the store has a plentiful variety of items that you may need for your camping trip. The sites are clean but a little dusty at times.This is to be expected out in the country. Overall pleasant experience!! We will camp here again !!!
Apr 17, 2017
Had a wonderful time. Loved the layout of the grounds. Don't forget to walk around and check out the upper roads where it is tent camping only. Beautiful views.
Apr 17, 2017
Nice campground & friendly staff. Would stay here again.
Apr 14, 2017
Love this campground! Great staff at the store, sites are easy and clean (though not always level) - minor compared to the location you get - close to San Luis Obispo - we've visited several times and love it!
Apr 14, 2017
Good people, friendly staff. Lousy showers, grounds not anywhere near as nice as County campground up the road at the lake and better priced. Stacked camping at it's finest

My husband and I and our 3 grown kids w our grandkids just spent an amazing 3 days at your KOA. Perfect family fun spot!
