RV Reviews

Jul 28, 2015
This was our second stay. The first time was great. We were bothered by getting nickled and dimed for everything. They charge for a 1 minute zip line $15. Peddle cart/rock wall $10. Last April, they only charged $5 for Rockwall and nothing for peddle cart. It is a quiet place and good for families. But if you have more than one kid and have to pay for those things, it adds up. We won't be back .

Pluses: great views and "camping" feeling I wanted. Negatives: Steep terrain/road from campsite to pool/playground, two flights of stairs from campsite to the restrooms/showers. Anyone with access issues should choose another location. On the phone I was told zip line was daily, but it was not. Email to confirm zip line sch. prior to arrival was not answered. Kids loved rock wall,pool,fire ring

Great location for a family reunion and weekend gathering.

We had a very nice stay! Plenty of activities for the kids & a nice new big pool. Can't wait to stay there again!

A little too much walking to reach office, pool ect, for the ill or old, but overall it was a beautiful campground.

Everyone was friendly and helpful, as a member would rate it one of the top KOA. Great for kids
Jul 25, 2015
HAD A GREAT STAY. LOTS OF ACTIVITIES FOR ALL AND THE EMPLOYEES WERE PLEASANT AND HELPFUL. WOULD NEVER WANT TO STAY IN OUR SITE AGAIN--TOO MUCH DIRT. HOWEVER, DID LIKE THE LOOKS OF THE PATIO SITES FURTHER UP THE ROAD.

Last KOA stopover on our 6 week stay in USA. KOA kept its reputation intact. The standard was equal to and better than some we used. In general KOA suited our needs. Thank you. Ian

Not enough sites with full hookup and those with them are on dirt with the cabins WAY TOO close. Get the pull through sites- back in are RIGHT ON TOP of the cabins. All of the dirt = TONS of dust. My dad came and he was charged $10 (I was the first site) he stayed 2 hrs. Would be better if the pool was heated- my kids would not even touch it- kids in it were freezing. My kids loved the zip line.

We stayed at Rivers Edge, bathrooms weren't always clean or have toilet paper. They also need repairs. Auto lights didn't always work. Nice friendly staff. Costs for everything little thing excessive. Should have one charge for site no extra ppl charge. 6 ppl to site with one charge not tell you only 4 ppl to site have to pay for 2 others. That is deceptive. What is the purpose for the bands?
Jul 23, 2015
clean, family place with lots of activities, animal friendly
Jul 22, 2015
it was fine. I wish the store had more options and served coffee. I wish we had known about activities that were going on. We never received a schedule or anything at check in. Just would have been helpful especially with kids.

Staff was mediocre at best, extras for kids were expensive, and shoddy. We were threatened by 2 Rottweilers and another large dog while on KOA property, all unattended and off leash and when staff was advised, it was met with indifference.

This is not only a great place to take the kids, but also a fantastic campground for a romantic cabin getaway. There are a ton of things to do: zip lining, wall climbing, creek exploration, movies... It is also a short drive to Ojai which is a quaint small town with nice restaurants. It is nestled between beautiful green mountains.

Pool was very nice with plenty of lounge chairs. Bathrooms near Birch were clean but the ones by the Oaks were disguising.
Jul 21, 2015
We loved this campground. Our site was nice. There is a lot to do and see. Staff was very friendly. I would go there again.
Jul 20, 2015
Awesome. Too bad it rained in July. Who would have predicted that. Lol.
Jul 20, 2015
Horrible site where random strangers were walking through and hanging out in to reach the bathrooms. Couldn't even leave our trailer because strangers were constantly sitting in our site and looking through our windows as they waited for their friends to leave the public bathrooms.
Jul 20, 2015
We needed a place to test run our new ( 1st time buyers:) trailer... & we found you guys on Yelp... We were not disappointed!! Even though it rained... We & our 2 boys had so much fun!! We'll definitely be back!!
Jul 20, 2015
Location, location, location, this KOA defiantly has a great location, close to a stream / river, good activities for the kids. Only issue was the site was not very level for the length of my RV, at 30' I expected less drop off on the pad, rear axel was off the ground 6" to level the rig. The office did move me to a different site so I was accommodated. Overall a very nice campground.

We had a great stay on an unusual rainy July weekend. Staff was very friendly. Park is big and has a lot of camping areas but it never felt crowded.
Jul 20, 2015
The stay overall was very nice however there was a wedding shower at the time which crowded some of the bathrooms and made the water pressure and temperature while showering very low and cold while showering, also some of the amenities were closed not due to the storm but due to no workers being there. That was a bummer for children, however other than that it was absolutely wonderful.
Jul 20, 2015
We would definitely come again. The pool and grounds were well maintained, and there were plenty of activities for all to enjoy. One downside is the inability to book sites as site specific. We ended up getting a site that was roadside with people zooming around with no care for those nearby.
Jul 20, 2015
Nice time. We stayed 3 night. Just wish activities were included in our stay. Overall a nice place. Kids had fun.
Jul 19, 2015
Good stay in general especially with the addition of the swimming pool. Would love to see more evening activities like pool and air hockey etc in the club house. This year the "Big foot walk was a huge disappointment". Not nearly as good and very boring. The kids were very disappointed! Bouncy pillow,climbing wall and play structure....just too hot to use. Need shade in these areas.

Very nice place. Nice People and good service.

Very nice and clean Park. Thank you

I enjoy the campground and the kids were happy, the pool was great. However, The zipline was not open on Tues, and no one bothered to inform me of that, and it was supposed to be 10.00 for all day for the climbing wall and peddle cars, but it was only open for 1 hr in the morning and 1 hr in the afternoon, when we went down I was told it was 12.00 if I pd there or $10.00 at the office,was not told
Jul 18, 2015
Poor management!!!!
Jul 17, 2015
This was a wonderful place to stay. I was bummed about how uneven the site was. The trailer was OK but trying to sit on a lounge chair was scary. Also, the number of dogs running loose in our area was beyong crazy! That should be monitored a little closer.
Jul 17, 2015
Great place and will stay again
Jul 17, 2015
Nice to finally have a pool/ trash in our site when we arrived/ bathrooms were spotless/too many extra charges for activities/love the scenery/ need a better stocked store. Still one of our favorite KOAs
Jul 17, 2015
This place keeps getting more fun. The zip line, the new pool, bmx track, nature trail. I'm glad I only live 12 miles away!
Jul 17, 2015
Just an overnight, though I've stayed for several days before. Lovely, tree shaded, quiet (beautifully behaved children) spot to recoup. : )
Jul 16, 2015
As always, we had a wonderful stay. We'll back next month
Jul 14, 2015
The natural part of this place was wonderful. I must say though adding generation Y staff is impacting your business. I was highly disturbed by the Friday, Saturday night roving staff harassing us as we camped sites 49,50, 42 and 36 which ran contra to what the policy quiet hours. Staff insisted we turn off ALL media, including a cell phone speaker...this mssg was delivered with such DISDAIN

Lovely location; really far from what we were doing. Great for going a staying for awhile. Not an overnight stop
Jul 13, 2015
The campground was fine - it's set up a bit strangely because a private road seems to run through it, cutting the property in half, and everything is sort of spread out. The bathrooms weren't quite as nice as other KOA's I've been to - these are more like state park, and the hours for activities are rather random. General store isn't very well stocked, either.
Jul 13, 2015
It was a lovely Family trip at KOA. Lots of activities for the kids and the pool was awesome. =) It was a great weekend!
Jul 13, 2015
It was a short stay but very relaxing! This was our second stay and we want to plan on a larger longer family outing soon. Thank you.
Jul 13, 2015
Exceeded our expectations !!!

I normally would say I would recommend this campground but I am upset that I was charged premium rate to stay in site one. I was everyone's turn around point, could smell it every time some one dumped waste and there was no way it was a pull thru site. The turn was a complete 90 degree angle. Once you got in you had to pull forward and back in. The patio was 20 feet from the trailer.
Jul 13, 2015
Always enjoy my stay at Ventura ranch, been there many times. I did experience what I would call a bit of harassment from the night patrol for low level noise. Maybe there have been problems lately, it was just a little over the top. All in all, good time though.
