Dirt flying everywhere from constant car traffic. Lots of low-life people, including maintenance staff.

We made a last minute reservation and Karen was able to get us set up. She was very knowledgable of the area. The campsite is five minutes from Santa Margarita Lake and we had a great day fishing. Glad we stayed here.

We came to Santa Margarita for a family event, and we arrived very late at night. They had left our site information on their board for us, but came out anyway to make sure we had everything we needed.

There's a lot of upgrades since last time we visited. The staff are more friendly, too. My family and I had a great time and we'll definitely go back.

We really enjoyed our stay at your campground - it is obviously well taken care of and will undoubtedly be a 5 star when all the work is done. Everyone was polite and the campground is located on a beautiful piece of property - a tent campers dream! The RV slots were roomy and flat. The emu was hillarous - what a treat for the pups!

This place was awesome! Really steep hills (fun). Great atmosphere. Kim made us feel welcome and right at home. This is more of a "campground" feel which we LOVED! We totally want to come back again soon! Thank you so much!

The attendant at the counter did a great job welcoming us and informing us of everything we needed to know. She was extremely friendly and very personable. She does an excellent job, especially when it comes to customer service!

It's a nice place to take kids.Summer months: pool, games, etc. The first time we went in the Winter: COOLD! There is a jump pillow. It's like a jump-house without the house. Lot's of fun. The only real problem I have with this one is that there are a lot of long term residents and some of their sites are messy and run-down looking. The employees are very helpful and friendly. We'll go back

The campground was clean and the staff were amazing! There was so much to do at camp. We brought our dogs and there was plenty of room for their walks too. Great place!

Internet was not working very well but staff tried their best to resolve the issue. Store very well stocked. Bathhouse was clean but showers were awkward as they were small. Beautiful area.
Mar 28, 2016
We had a great time. Very nice staff. They had an Easter egg hunt and it was so cute , and well done!!
Mar 28, 2016

would stay there again. most likely this year.
Mar 24, 2016
Far away, no internet, no way of contacting the owner as the taped falling apart walking talke doesn't work. Roads are terrible with huge holes, trailer/ motorhomes parked wit him foot from each other. The probation officers are visiting people living on the grounds ? I didn't plan on this kind of excitement - will tell you people to stay away from this campground.

Check in was great. Friendly staff. Site was uneven. Lots of bugs/mosquitoes. At dinnertime, wild cats would come try and steal our food. My kids loved the yellow pillow. The campsite itself was quite far from pismo/avila, about 30 minute drive.
Mar 23, 2016
Clean sites. Friendly staff.
Mar 22, 2016
Not what was advertised on website. Run down. Was not close to lake.
Mar 22, 2016
Friendly staff. Nice to see many of the full timers weren't in the highly sought after area by the playground.
Mar 21, 2016
Everything was clean and very nice. Staff was friendly
Mar 03, 2016
Thanks again

Lots to do, friendly staff, and great views. My only wish was that the roads were paved. The steep dirt roads made towing up them and backing a trailer into the spots very challenging.
Feb 16, 2016
Camped in our trailer. Spot 27 was very nice, though it could have been more level. It is quite pretty there in February. We were a little too close to a cabin of loud kids.

Staff great! We were on vacation from out of state. Our generator quit working while dry camping, so we went to the KOA to check shore power. We would have to hurry home if we couldn't fix the problem. Kudos to Scott who took the time to discuss our problem, research it, and ultimately FIX the problem. So we truly felt like KOA family members and continued our travels in California.

The Kampground is cool. We were camped by a group of either long-term campers or locals who let their dogs run loose. The minute we tried to walk out dogs, we were confronted by these loose dogs. Then, after dark, some jerk from the group below us spent 20 min yelling and whistling for his loose dog. Extremely annoying and rude. It is obvious these people are accustomed to acting this way.
Jan 28, 2016
Great spot with amazing landscaping.
Jan 21, 2016
This was a fun campground for the kids since we were amount in the cold weather. I don't think we'd camp there during the summer. The pool is a bit too small and far from the camp ground. The lake isn't close either. The staff were all great and friendly!
Jan 21, 2016
Very beautiful campground!

could not get any TV reception but I understand we were in the mountains
Jan 19, 2016
First time staying KOA. I assume they are all family friendly like this one. It is just my wife and myself, so not really what we are hoping for. With that said, aside from a Quiet Time issue that got resolved, I would return again. Staff and owner Karen could not have been nicer. I like all the openness of the site. Please work on more pull thru spaces for trailers with a little room by them

Ver good tô be with family
