Campground Reviews

Jul 03, 2015
The managment staff was not organized. The zip line was down after we paid for the full zip line for 15 people! The rock climbing did not open when they said it would after our children waited half the day to go on it. The bathrooms were a mess and sanitary disposals were overflowing with used feminine products. The toilets were backed up as well.

Staff is always so friendly. Campground is clean. The new pool is a great addition.

The teepee was roomy, the pool was great. One of the shower doors did not stay closed. We had noisy, inconsiderate neighbors next to us.

It was our first time camping here and it was very clean. we spent most of our time at the pool. It was too hot to ride bikes or do other activities

We have stayed here before and looked forward to the new pool area. At check in, you are given plastic wristbands and instructed to wear at the pool & play areas. However, if you're like us after a multi day stay with kids, and your kids lose/remove/destroy the bands; you must pay $5 for replacement bands. We already paid for use of the amenties! With steep activities costs, we will come less.

It's ok, just keep most of the sites are not full hook up. It said full hook up but we got there and there was no sewer. The place is VERY quiet, a little too quiet for my taste. The pool was freezing, it's not heated.The clubhouse is not inviting, very run down, you don't wanna go there. Other than that, kids could have fun here if you pay for the extra stuff like zip line.

When we parked our RV and opened the door, we had to dodge the large pile of dog poop. The trash dumpster was overflowing the entire time we were there. The bounce balloon was cobbled together with duct tape and didn't hold enough air for our kids to actually bounce. It looked like the cable had recently been dug up and spliced at our site, but it had been left above ground and the dirt was a mess

We had 25 family members stay. Some in cabins, others in tents. The facilities were well kept. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Great place for kids! Restrooms were nice for a campground and plenty to do for a 2 night stay.

It is a shame that some of the activities are not available more, for instance the pedal carts stopped early on Sunday because of people leaving, but there were some people still there. Generally a great place, we will definitely go again.

Hard to find. On arrival greeted by a staff member that was bored and uninterested. It is a large KOA. Our campsite was a long walk to the pool (temp was 95-up)and had to drive to get to the pool. The path to walk is not well developed so unsafe for my 6months pregnant wife and three children. When asked about leaving early and a refund the staff member at the counter looked baffled and offended.

Went up 6/28 and 6/29, Sunday and Monday night. Campground was noisy until midnight with people talking and screaming. No camp rep to stop them. They also try to get you to wear a yellow wrist band while you are there. They want you to help them identify people that haven't paid, to protect their revenue by tagging you...insulting. Pool closed at 6:00 pm.

Pool area is lovely, grounds are very well kept, staff very friendly. A change machine is needed for the laundry as the office ran out of quarters.

The most horrible restromms ever! There is only 4 old toilets to hundreds of gunsts, to reach them you'll have to walk up 32 steps, only to find that all the sinks are blocked. For 3 days nothing was done!
Jul 01, 2015
We were very pleased with all of the services, amenities and especially the staff and how friendly they were. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer!

NO full hookup (sewer). Was told over the phone that our site Cedar 623 had full hookup.

We love Ventura Ranch KOA! So much to do, great sites, love the pool! It is perfect for a quick weekend get away!

Everyone wonderful. Grounds much improved. Clubhouse needs a lot of work. Cleanliness, screens, working fans etc. all over upgrade.

It is a very nice campground, however, has some serious issues that need to be addressed. One was a safety issue with employees not knowing how to properly harness people for the Zip lines (one person in our group was harnessed incorrectly and got stuck on the line, but close enough to get pulled back.) In the upper campground by the store there was a constant sewer smell that was awful at times

It was very nice and relaxing, plus the cabin was beautiful and spacious.

Lots of things to do with the kids. Clean. Super nice employees!!

My spot was not ready until after 2:30 pm, I had to go find another spot. No Rules enforcement. Dogs allowed in the pool area, no one ever came around to check at the pool. Eating, drinking, diving...Amplified music. I was at Cedar, where one semi-permanent camper talked as through a megaphone. Although the TP and tent areas looked nice and I would recommend these spots, but not the hook-ups.
Jun 29, 2015
Nice place. Campground has plenty to do. Nice full and partial hookup sites, quiet at night, enforce quiet hours with vigor. enjoyable stay overall.

GREAT WEEKEND PARK KEPT UP , CLEAN BATH ROOMS A BIG PLUS, TENT CABIN VERY GOOD HOUSEKEEPING AND DECOR NICE TOUCH...
Jun 29, 2015
Just returned after 2 years...lots of great changes have been made. Only thing we didn't like was the campsite we were first but in was full of moloch!!! Not good....but the friendly staff was able to move us to a much better site. Thank you!

The staff is extremely friendly and the number of activities available to my family far exceeds that of almost any other campground. This last trip (6/26-6/28) was out third tent camping trip at this location this year and we were still in awe and in love with this location!

That bathrooms were very dirty and the check-in staff was unfriendly.

The best part of this campground is the activities for the kids
Jun 29, 2015
Nice and being improved but still plumbing issues. The restroom/ showers above Cedar area keep backing up, making for a very nicely decorated open sewer.
Jun 29, 2015
We had a great time. You are close to town but really out in the mountains. Safe and well maintained. Very nice staff. I wish the trash collector would come closer to 10am on Saturdays :)

Limited shower/ bathroom facilities for camping people. Ok for motorhomes I guess. Bathrooms to far from our site.

Loved it!!

The stay was great for my 2 kids and myself. However, the stay was poor for my wife because the wifi never worked while we were there. The key selling point to get my wife to come along. My slingbox wouldn't work without the wifi. Slingbox allows me to access my cable box from anywhere.

Lots of activities for the kids

This was our 2nd time at ventura ranch, we love the teepees. One of the reasons we choose ventura ranch is that after a day at the beacb, instead of TV the kids would enjoy the playground and jumpy pillow. This time the pillow and new pool were closed when we returned even with extended daylight and nicer evening temperature. I would suggest leaving the pillow up for families open until 7:30.

Koa is a great experience, my kids loved it!

This KOA is listed as Ventura when it is actually about 20 miles northeast. It was very difficult to find after dark. Tent sites were all dirt, no grass. The rest of the campground was nice with activities for families. Store hours only until 6:00 p.m. when most others are open until 8 or 9. Lots of peacocks calling through the evening and early morning.
