Campground Reviews

Site 50 was hard to find- numbering was faded paint on a rock at the back of site. There was no water at site. For 38$ this seemed over priced.

Don't know you could do anything about this, but the flies and small flying insects in the middle of the day were VERY bothersome.

Great location, but short on amenities such as laundry, cable TV, and wifi. The laundry had 2 washers and dryers, and one of the washers was out of service. Cable TV was out of service. Due to the park's location, no local TV service was available. The wifi was not usable. The park did have a zip line, and a nice pool. The RV spots are generally tree covered. My spot was not very level but shaded.

Good place for families. We are retired and not necessarily good for seniors.

Must admit it was my first camping experience as an adult. I wanted to spend a weekend away from the city without having to drive a long way. It is conveniently located an hour an a half from LA. Couldn't have a picked a better way to spend my anniversary weekend in one of the Glamor tents, only steps away from the bathrooms. My husband and I are already planning our next visit!

Too many flies. Should have an exchange library. Good, helpful employees.
Sep 26, 2014
It was a great stay except for being attacked by many flys could use some insect control there. The place looked great other than that but to walk casually around the flys made it very difficult.

It is my favorite KOA in all of our travels. The staff is just great!!! So friendly and very helpful. I can hardly wait for our next visit.

So glad the pool was finished came out really nice....this was our second time there and it was fun...we will be back..

Staff was helping cup especially Bob. Pool looks good, zip line crew was very nice. My one gripe is that I can't understand why the KOA would schedule a movie night for Friday evening that just doesn't make sense give. Most people come up late after work and school on Friday. Saturday movie night makes more sense, please fix your movie night. Thanks

We had a fabulous experience. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. We had four children (ages 5 - 8) and they enjoyed all the activities. We'll be back. Thank you!

Initially I was frustrated because my reservation was not accurately recorded by KOA. Upon arrival the manager was able to correct the mistake and find us a remarkable site for our stay. Wonderful amenities, friendly staff, and clean grounds. We WILL be back!

We had a great time here. So many great things to do. Zipline, hiking, grassy areas to hang out, pool if you want to swim. The weather was perfect and we had a great campsite overlooking the teepees down below and the mountains in the distance.

All tent sites were dust ( no grass) which ment dirt & dust went everywhere. Pool closed too early (6pm) on a summer night!!! Also most tent sites u can not park your car near your site which is annoying as whilst camping we alway need to get things in and out of the car. Also the restroom weren't very clean, In my option the place is run down and needs money & love put into it.

We asked for a quiet, level space and they put us in the one right by the office and dump and trash station. Lots of bugs, smell from the trash and dump station. Also the cable station had caught fire and no cable available. Very noisy with everyone coming and going at main gate right next to our space.

The grounds were beautiful. We enjoyed walking the trails. Our check-in was not a pleasant experience. One of the young women was in training. Registrants were backed up 10 deep. The wait was long. When it was our turn, we asked if they were honoring the Value Members Sat. night. There was disagreement between the trainer and the trainee. We did not receive the Sat. night.

We just bought our motorhome and it was our first trip to try it out. Our stay @ the "RANCH" was perfect!
Sep 16, 2014
The new pool is great. It was helpful in beating the summer heat. We truly enjoyed our teepee accommodations, too. I hope that they do a great job in maintaining the pool.

This park is great! The store could be a little better stocked, but overall a great stay.
Sep 16, 2014
The pool is great! Enjoyed every minute of it. Erica was very pleasant also.
Sep 16, 2014
Specifically requested a space that my satellite would work-space surrounded by trees so did not work. Cable tv was not working. Space was not very level-difficult to level motorhome.
Sep 16, 2014
Pack 803 had a great time! We look forward to camping with you again! Thank you, Chelsea for your assistance!
Sep 16, 2014
We had a wonderful time as always-have been very loyal to the KOA system,V.R in particular.Per your request,2 items would've made our stay even more enjoyable.1)Our assigned site was already occupied.2)I have a Hospice RN job requiring internet access and am no longer able to stream;in fact,WIFI was basically unusable.This is a change from prior stays.I need to find a cmpgrd that allows streaming.

Perfect KOA every season new and wonderful at Ventura Ranch the new pool is BEAUTIFUL
Sep 16, 2014
We LOVE this place and will continue to return for years to come. Sorry to see the golf carts are no longer available but the new pool makes up for it.
Sep 16, 2014
nous avons eu un problème de voisinage trés bruyant . Le management savait que ce pouvait arriver et ne nous a pas prévenu . Camping trop grand il faut prendre la voiture pour aller à la piscine
Sep 16, 2014
WiFi less than satisfactory.
Sep 16, 2014
Everything was wonderful. I only have one thing that could have been better. When we arrived, we were assigned to a campsite with absolutely no shade. When we looked around we noticed that every other site had at least a few trees to offer a bit of relief from the heat. Next time, I'll be sure to request a site with shade. Other than that one detail, everything about this KOA experience was great!
Sep 16, 2014
Really enjoyed the amenities such as the pool, Bigfoot walk, bouncer, etc. Little disappointed at added charge for pedal bikes. Clean facilities noisy neighbors that didn't honor quiet time better enforcement would have been nice. Thanks
Sep 16, 2014
We were expecting the one night free, but that didn't happen. Your website needs to reflect that a bit more clearly.
Sep 16, 2014
We had a great time. We were a little disapointed that the Cable was out. It was very hot on the weekend we spent it would have been nice to stay in the cool cabin and watch a movie during the hotest part of the day. We also had to share the BBQ and Fire pit with the cabin next door. Each cabin should have their own BBQ so guests can cook on their time without needing to schedule.
Sep 16, 2014
This is a great family atmosphere! However, it is disappointing that there is one antiquated shower in the tent area and four, roomy modern showers in the RV area. There seems to be a disparity. More water access for doing dishes would be helpful also.
Sep 16, 2014
Air conditioning was awesome. Fireplace a plus. Could not figure out how to watch cable... No instructions. Brought our own DVD player and DVDs fortunately. The pool was amazing. Love the outdoor fire pit !
Sep 16, 2014
Generally, it was good. Two things. The first one is staff. They are not friendly at all. Second one is time limit? for activities. It was closed too soon.
Sep 16, 2014
everything was great with the exception of the campsite, it too was very small for 6 people and 2 dogs but we made do.
Sep 16, 2014
Cable was out.could have been cleaner. Trees needed to be trimmed higher for higher vehicles. Looked great for kids
Sep 15, 2014
This was my first time staying at a KOA campground and I was blown away! Our tent site was HUGE! Staff was SO friendly! Property was sprawling, stunning and well kept up. SO much to do for the kids. My 5 year old son had a blast! We will be back FOR SURE!
Sep 15, 2014
Love the stay. Had some loud neighbors next to us, but my kids loved the Bigfoot hike. The only thing that I could say would be to add a sign at the end of the oaks saying KOA this way with an arrow so we wouldn't end up on private property. Had a great time with all the activities available.
Sep 15, 2014
Our cabin was AMAZING! I'm not much of the kind of person that is all for sleeping in a tent, so we chose to "glamp" (glam camp) and stay in the cabin and it exceeded our expectations by miles! Only drawback was the cable did not work our entire stay even after notifying an employee about the problem. But the activities and accommodations will make us return for sure!
Sep 14, 2014
Every staff member here, and the owner, is top shelf.
Sep 12, 2014
We enjoyed our stay, although it was at a time when the cable tv was not working. I'd like to know if the peacocks are seasonal. We did not see them this time. Thank you.
Sep 12, 2014
Brought the family, 2 RVs & tent. Had a great time. Disappointed only 1 dump. Zip Line too expensive. Everything else was good. Pool is beautiful.
Sep 12, 2014
Our two year old loved the zip line and still wants to go hunting for Big Foot at night! The new pool is beautiful and perfect for cooling off on the warm weekends!
