Cabin Reviews

Aug 25, 2015
Very relaxing and luxurious
Aug 24, 2015
Lots of fun stuff to do but I wish the activities were included in the price. Staff made us go get wristbands while we were at pool even though I had my receipt. There were nice inside the glamour tent, yuck!
Aug 24, 2015
Our cabin smelled like a septic tank. Also activities had limited availability and were over-priced.

Ventura ranch koa is our favorite place to go, when we need to escape from our busy lives.

Loved the camping cabin. Clean and cozy. Great view of trees and was private. Could use some clothing hooks esp in bathroom.Would love to go back again.

The cabin was clean and had all the amenities needed. The website is misleading when it says it has Wifi. Wifi is only available near certain areas of the park and NO WIFI was available in my cabin. The first night we were there, a transformer had blown and there was no power and it was 115 degrees in the daytime. Plusses were the pool, nature trail, jump pad and play ground for the kids.

Power cut for 2 days impacted overall experience. Loved the cabin, the views and the pool

It was very disappointing that the pool did not work. We did not get any refund for this, while staying is expensive. Moreover, inside the cabin you hear every word from the direct neighbours because of a very thin wall.

The kids loved the activities. But needs improvement in cleanness of cabins and shower water temperature (it couldn't stay warm for long: either gets very hot or cold)
Aug 13, 2015
The one big problem was that the general store had virtually no food. This site is pretty far from town. At the very least, they should sell some lunch meat, hot dog buns, bread, or hot dogs. If a person comes late and doesn't have any food, they at least want something to tie them over. Unfortunately, there was very, very little food to buy. Otherwise, loved the visit.

I stayed in one of the glamour cabins and it was actually nicer than I thought it would be. The mattress though is noisy and uncomfortable (I know it's camping, but I paid for a cabin). Overall my family and I had a great time and the staff was friendly and helpful

Lovely cabin. Not safe for small children in view of it's location at the top of an un-fenced steep precipice.

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.

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 $$$$.
Aug 07, 2015
We were looking forward to our stay but shortly after visiting the pool on our first day, we were told the pool had to be closed and it didn't reopen before we left. It was a huge disappointment for us as the kids love to swim. We found that the alternative activities on site are quite costly if you have multiple children. Wish more free activities were available.
Aug 07, 2015
We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It would have been nicer if the pool was open.
Aug 06, 2015
This has been our favorite for so long. Sadly management has decided the customers are no longer important. Everything has changed for the worse. All about charging $$$ and no customer service. Long time employees apologizing for management constantly.
Aug 05, 2015
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.
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.

Quiet time is too early at 9pm. Should be 10 or 11 pm.
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
Aug 01, 2015
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. :)
Jul 31, 2015
Awesome campground! I would recommend more items in the store but other than that it was a really great place to stay!
Jul 30, 2015
The whole family had a great time. The park is nice and clean. The only thing we missed that the kids wanted to do was the zip line, the time from when we arrived and departed there was none scheduled for us to experience it. Overall it was nice.
Jul 28, 2015
The campground is great. We had a fun time.
Jul 28, 2015
Everything was great except one thing - one of the women at the front desk was very unhelpful. If I asked her something about KOA, she'd generally shrug and say she didn't know, like what the craft was at arts and crafts. She seemed bored and annoyed at all times. Everything else was wonderful.

We had the deluxe cabins and didn't really camp, but loved the convenience, amenities, and air-conditioning, etc. I wish there could be another system besides the colored wristbands, which required regular replacements when kids yanked them off. The DVD player didn't work and Bob and Duane went out of their way to make things right. We appreciated their extra effort.
Jul 27, 2015
Great cabins! The camp site is very clean. My only recommendation is that they make the activity hours longer (e.g. Rock wall, jumping pillow, pedal cars, ziplining). I especially enjoyed the night hike & zip line.
Jul 27, 2015
the cabin was very nice and comfortable. we enjoyed the pool and the easy walks around the trails
Jul 24, 2015
Love this place. Can't wait til retirement so I can live here at the KOA part time in my RV.
Jul 24, 2015
I really enjoyed the camp site. We got a cabin and didn't have any hot water when it came to showering. Didn't realize it till later when kids were taking showers. When we went office was closed and manager was off site. When we went the next day they tried to fix it but still didn't work. that was the purpose of getting a cabin due to shower and kids.
Jul 23, 2015
Power kept going off in cabin, no maintenance to help, stairs unsafe, pool hours not good, store lacking, no range top, no tv, shower gave you maybe 45 sec of hot water, random inconvenient times for kid events, worse koa I've been in - I've been to about 10-12. For price, other KOA's are much better.
Jul 23, 2015
We loved our cabin and the facilities. It's a great place to camp and we will be back. There were two things that disappointed us. Our neighbors were very loud at night in their cabin. And, we tried to prepay for our crafts the evening prior and the office didn't know the price so we ended up paying more the next day.
Jul 22, 2015
The cabin we rented needs to be called a studio, not a deluxe!

Very nice, great activities, no serious issues, clean &beautiful RV & cabin sites, OK showers & laundry. Suggestions: tell us in advance re: the stairs & room-heights in the "lofts" -- it effects who is expected to use them. (kids love 'em, but they are not realistic for elderly or big people.) Sheets ON them would be nice. Clubhouse could have been cleaner & more pleasant - was not ready.

We had a family reunion for a weekend with 50 people it work very well. Although it rained very hard every time our group was trying to eat dinner  which was on usual. It was great for children.
Jul 20, 2015
Nice stay but cabins need some maintenance ie. Bathroom door not locking, hanging extension cord from roof, cardboard pieces taped over windows, windows without screens , etc.
Jul 20, 2015
The guests in the cabin next to ours were somewhat loud, and there were two separate parties that stayed during our visit. I did not necessarily appreciate the security telling our family to be quiet when we were just sitting there enjoying our campfire quietly, but I guess he had to tell everyone in the area "to be fair".
Jul 20, 2015
Our family Loved our wkend stay. Wonderful memories & great service. We will definitely be back :-)
Jul 20, 2015
I had a great time at Ventura KOA, as did my family. We normally would not consider camping, but the zip lining , rock climbing and other activities really made a difference. The staff was really helpful and nice. The only complain I would have, would be , that the cabin we had, did not have a parking spot next to it , like others did. Thank You KOA 😍

Beautiful grounds. Under staffed and poor costumer service. Management was inefficient and staff was unable to take care of anything without authorization from management which was unavavilable

No Wi-Fi on the lower campground like the website said there would be. Almost all activities cost extra money, and one security guy kept coming to our camp of all females, a little creepy. But other than that, a good campground.
