We had a great time! Great ammenities and friendly staff. Only thing we had a problem with was laundry. Had to dry things 2 cycles and they were still soaking wet.

Campground was very nice. Loud roosters next door waking me up at 4:30 a.m. wasn't appreciated. Don't forget your earplugs.

We had site#25 which was great. It was very roomy and flat which was great for the tent. It does have a small hill, so be careful with small children. The jumping pillow was fun. I wish the store was open later, but the host was available if we needed anything.

The campsite had ants, but it wasn't terrible otherwise. The staff was very friendly and talkative. The lake itself was unsatisfying.

Although the sites are a bit snug next to eachother, it allowed us to make friends with all the neighbors!! Perfect for an overnight stay when you have a concert down the way!

This campsite was nice, despite comments seen on google or Yelp. I didn't experience any issue with the loud train, nor did the industrial community around bother me. Where we stayed was private and peaceful. It was beautiful also when the sun rised! The guy who helped up, Scott was really nice, even though we didn't get there till 10pm, he made sure we had a map and info waiting for us outside.

We had the best time camping at Santa Margarita KOA this past week. My kids loved the play area with the giant jumping pillow and we did a beautiful hike nearby. The only thing that we had trouble with was the bathrooms. There were two steep crawls and a long set of stairs down and then up to get there. For adults this is no problem, but it was hard with a 3 and 5 year old.

The kids loved the jumping pillow. Beautiful location, clean bathrooms, and friendly staff. Looking forward to coming back soon!

This was a great stay for the family. There were lots of families, quiet nights, and the jumping pillow was a huge hit!

The campground is nice and clean! It was also quiet. I know for a fact that I will be back.

From the very first day the staff was extremely helpful and friendly! We made it to our campsite (we rented a yurt) and we're surprised and delighted to see that we were son close to the jump pillow. The yurt was perfect and clean as well. We loved it here and will definitely be back!!!

This is my first time camping with KOA and was impressed. I had the best experience with the staff (I wish I could remember her name). She was so helpful in going out of her way to help us. I was with some college students, which some of them didn't bring sleeping bags. She actually lent them some sleeping bags. When we left to check out, one of the car batteries died. She help to jump start.

The campsite is big and there are everything you need, but the restrooms where no clean enough and the shower did not work.

The staff was very friendly...pool was refreshing...the bounce pillow was fun...and the bathrooms were clean. What else could you look for when you are camping? Overall great stay!

This is by far the best camp ground I've ever been to!

We stayed in one of the yurts, and when we arrived at 6:30pm, it was too hot inside. I opened all windows from outside and it took more than 3 hours to get to comfortable temp. inside.

I loved this campsite! It was very clean and organized. The space between tent sites makes it so much more relaxing.

Great staff and tent camp sites, the best tent sites I've seen in a KOA. Some are private and situated in an oak woodland up windy dirt roads. Loved my stay here!
