This KOA has many amenities und is beautifully located. The receptionist could have been a bit more friendly though.

We were so pleasantly surprised to see our very large campground, shaded by many trees, clean facilities, pool, gem mining, zip line, and the jumping pillow!

this koa had to close their pool the day we arrived due to an apparent screwup by ventura county. this is the main amenity for this property. I was not impressed that they could not tell me what my rate would be for a month long stay in January. They are under new management which is not always a good thing.

I stayed in the safari tent, and was not sure where we were supposed to wash dishes, the sink that was there for that purpose was taken out the second day we stayed there. In the women's bathroom only one out of two was working. This place has potential but needs obvious repairs.

We went on this trip with a Girl Scout troop who earned the funds to rent 2 cabins. They were very excited to go on this trip. An hour after arriving the pool got shut down. The activities list for Tuesday, (our only full day there). Didn't include any of the things they were looking forward to. The zip lining was shut down and there was nothing for them to do. It was a waste of their $$$$.

We were looking forward to our stay but shortly after visiting the pool on our first day, we were told the pool had to be closed and it didn't reopen before we left. It was a huge disappointment for us as the kids love to swim. We found that the alternative activities on site are quite costly if you have multiple children. Wish more free activities were available.

Liked the glamour tent and the clean facilities. Unsure we will return. Booked this KOA because of amenities. Pool closed, others were expensive and only open for brief periods of time (or not at all). Poor communication from management.

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It would have been nicer if the pool was open.

Great place, kind and helpful staff, expensive.

Yes we had a great time. Not happy with dogs inside pool area, cameras around pool might be a good idea

This has been our favorite for so long. Sadly management has decided the customers are no longer important. Everything has changed for the worse. All about charging $$$ and no customer service. Long time employees apologizing for management constantly.

I'm sure you guys will be hearing a lot of this but it kinda ruined our trip that the pool was not working the whole time we were camping. There wasn't much to do because we planned to spend a most of the hot day by the pool. Also the 2 dish washing stations by our camp site were out of order so we couldn't really wash our dishes and pans which was inconvenient. I really loved the tipi we stayed.

Even though this campground has many activities for kids to do, there are definitely issues with the site itself. Swimming pool was closed per Ventura County official. I could smell bad odor coming from a near by bathroom. The washed sinks were removed for some reason. I could not washed my utensils after cooking. I would not camp here. The air is unhealthy.

The pool was shut down the entire time we were there. There were allot more activities to do for the kids but all cost money. My boys had allot of fun but it costed me allot of money.

Nice vacation place to stay,friendly staffs. Wish that KOA can open up more hours for activities. We will come back for our next camping vacation.

Campground location is absolutely beautiful but management needs some tweaking. Lots of problems with being guaranteed specific cabins and then revoking that after our parties were separated. Compensation for our trouble was more of a slap in the face. Will definitely vacation somewhere else next time where our family can all be together.

The cabin was overpriced for the condition it was in. First of all, the sofa bed air mattess did not work. The fridge class broke and broke food items. Also, the shower water turned from being warm to dangerously hot to then extremely cold. Last, there were lots of spider webs inside the cabin.

I had a nice stay with several family members and friends in tent sites and 1 in a trailer. It's nice that a pool was added since my last visit. WiFi reception is not good and the clubhouse is by reservation only so no place for the older kids to hang out unlike a different KOA we stayed at last summer.

We liked the campground. The staff was not friendly or accommodating when we checked in. Also, we had 3 relatives over for dinner on Sunday night when the camp was 90% empty. I asked the staff if they could visit for two hours without paying the $20 fee (2 small cars) and they refused, without a smile or regret.

Very nice resort style camping with plenty to do. Close to Santa Paula and Ojai for an evening out. Campground was clean and well maintained.
Aug 04, 2015
Great place to camp with the family. Activities were fun but a little pricey. The pool was great. We will be back.

Our site was advertised to have "beautiful mountain views" but the only thing we had views of were the dumpster and main road with cars driving right by our site constantly. Stay away from Pine#5 unless you like zero privacy and clueless people cutting through your campsite regularly. Suggest to management they add to printed rules "do not allow your children to chase/terrorize the peacocks".
Aug 04, 2015
This KOA is great. Plenty of space and activities for the kids and adults alike. Love the teepee's.
Aug 03, 2015
Wonderful stay. Cabin was perfect with a complete kitchen and full bathroom.although carpet on stairs and in the loft had stains and needs to be replaced.The RV site was screened on sides with greenery, had a small patio and chairs, and everything was in working order. Staff at check in, zipline,craft station and pool were attentive , helpful and had positive attitudes. We will definitely return.

This Kampground exceeded our expectations! There was a ton of activities and the staff was extremely accommodating. The pool was amazing!

My family and I camp every other weekend all year round. I was very displeased with this KOA. We were in site 11 and it reeked of raw sewage. We were told this was one of the best sites in the campground when we booked and I was not impressed at all. We consistently had people staying in the cabins walking through our site as well. There wasn't much to do with 4 kids; ranging in ages 6-15.

Limited full hook up sites. Majority of sites require an extensive amount of shoring up your rig due to site unevenness. Maneuverability of larger rigs (30' plus) can be very challenging thru camp sites. Limited extra vehicle parking. Prices have increased over past couple of years - not considered a good value for the $$ anymore. Park has grown, only tent camping areas have kept up.

Quiet time is too early at 9pm. Should be 10 or 11 pm.
Aug 03, 2015
Spots are very not level. No one in our group could get level. Sewer hookup was uphill. Pool was very nice. Spots fairly good sized. Probably wouldn't go there again

I loved the campsite🌲
Aug 03, 2015
Wish the restrooms we're closer. As well, as more showers so no long lines. Other than that great!
Aug 03, 2015
This place is pretty great for a family. One suggestion I would make is that the pool area can get crazy. For example on Saturday there were clearly a large amount of people who were not staying at the campground. I would suggest posting an employee at the pool gate enforcing wrist band checks. As this KOA grows and they start to build more amenities I can only see them having larger crowds.

We truly enjoyed our stay except for: the walking tour of BIG FOOT, the guide told my group that we couldn't join them because we didn't have a ticket( which the office said it was free). We waited the 45 min, it was a disappointment to my family. Next, the walk climbing staff said that I would only have to pay $5. the office charged me $10. office and staff are NOT in sync with the RULES!

The staff was great but the manager, Nicole, was not accommodating when they forgot to tell me they no longer have the euro tent I reserved months before. No one called to inform me about this issue and I was told the euro tent company should have called me. Very disappointed in this KOA

It was my first time camping on this camp ground and I really loved it. I will definitely come again I'm already planning to go next month. It is very safe they have security going around the sites all night long. I love the security they give you.
Aug 03, 2015
great place, but the camp store can use a little help.
Aug 03, 2015
Took my wife for our anniverssary in the cabin . We loved it . Then brought the kids the rest of the weeked it was nice

Cameras should be installed at the pool, several guests had their dogs inside the pool, even with the posted signs. Not many guests take the time to read.
Aug 02, 2015
we only stayed one night. The site was not extremely level - it took us a while to get level so that the frog would work properly. The facility itself was fine - saw lots of things for kids to do which was great. If we ever come there again I would want our grandkids with us. Good family place to go.
Aug 02, 2015
Everything went very well!! The young ppl working there were very friendly and helpful with the rock wall and zip line. Pool was great. Families camping were great too!!

Not made for large motorhomes

Nice enjoyed the pool area and camp ground was nice. My son and I had a lot of fun on the zip line. The only thing we didn't like was the Police Department Explorer Day Users that overtook the entire pool.

Stayed in cabin, right by entrance and dumping station, not ideal location, but we had a blast. Went Wed-Fri, so it wasn't too busy and they had some, not all, activities. :)
