RV Reviews

We enjoyed the hiking options and away from the city feel, even though town was close by. We'll be back.
Jul 12, 2015
Enjoyed it, but was charged more than quoted. Still waiting for the rest of my refund.

Great place!

Ventura KOA had the cleanest restrooms and showers I have ever used at a campground.
Jul 11, 2015
Would recommend with an explanation though. There isn't much to do for the kids other than the pool and jump pad. The zipline is a rip off. It would cost $60. to go with your two small kids 1 time. A pd. adult had to go with the kids. No grassy area. Can't put up a tent for the kids next to the RV like the allow at Lake Casitas. There are other better KOA's.

We have been visiting for years it is our favorite place to stay, really enjoyed seeing the baby Peacoks.

Nice campground. Very clean. However only 3 showers for 3 loops meant long waits a couple of mornings.
Jul 10, 2015
Really great place. Enjoyed our stay.

Filthy bathrooms, unorganized booking and check in, received dirty rv site that was too small for my trailer(not the site I had originally reserved).

It's OK, nothing wrong, but nothing great. Pool and bathrooms are good. Park is clean.

Pool staff was so rude and unkindly !! I was offended !!

Normally koa is aa great safe place, but we had a very bad time 4th of July week end. We did not get in the same loop as our friends, and yes we requested to be. There was a large group on one site,way too many cars on the one site, loud music to 11 pm. They had tents on the motor home site all night. There was no security.

Would like to have ice cream that they had on the container. Be nice to have a 4th July parade. Offer each camper site to take part in low fee to cover cost for awards have camp site contest . Have paper facts on camp site anmails & plants . Have information for campers with children not to be going thru campers sites with battery operated cars or running after balls or toys

Perfect place for the family!

Reception did not meet my expectations. WIFI reception was less than "ok". The movie night movie was played on half the size of the projector screen. Why? Everything else was great.

We were disappointed that zip line was only available once during our 3 day stay and that was the day they did the maintainenc, delayed the start of zip lining so that 3 adults in our party were turned away, and they only ran 1 of the 2 lines. Disappointing.

This is not a pet friendly park, dog crap along roads, no pet area or close by trails near main entrance full hookup sites. Space had cigarette buttes and dirty paper towels. Speeders/construction on the roadway - some without tags in their windows. My space (7) had a sewer drain that was uphill to drain. Space not level - had to raise rear right by 7". Park is fine for non RV campers.

One of the best Campgrounds we've been to
Jul 04, 2015
Great facilities, clean and great location! Had a great stay.
Jul 04, 2015
We were allowed to move sites and then once paid and totally moved (6 hours later) were told we had to move again - we were hounded by staff and camper to change sites for 2 hours and then manager accused us of being uncooperative and was totally nasty. Two employees gave us this site - moving took half a day and then we were told to move over 1 site which would have taken hours again for 10 feet!

Don't go there! The restrooms are to few, old and out of order!
Jul 02, 2015
we plan to have our reunion there again next year

Staff is always so friendly. Campground is clean. The new pool is a great addition.
Jul 02, 2015
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
Jul 01, 2015
Great place for kids! Restrooms were nice for a campground and plenty to do for a 2 night stay.
Jul 01, 2015
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.
Jul 01, 2015
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.

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.
Jul 01, 2015
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!

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.
Jun 29, 2015
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
Jun 29, 2015
Lots of things to do with the kids. Clean. Super nice employees!!
Jun 29, 2015
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.
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!

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

This was my first KOA experience, beautiful setting and friendly staff. Loved it!
Jun 26, 2015
Nice pull-through premium spot, worth every penny. Bathrooms could be cleaned more frequently. Very small space for the Toad. $25 for the Zip Line is too high.
