Tent Reviews

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.

Pack 803 had a great time! We look forward to camping with you again! Thank you, Chelsea for your assistance!

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

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!

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

Staff friendly and greet prompt. Easy to check in and close by to local grocery stores and restaurants. Just not easy to find the camp site at night due to darkness and few sharp turns for 1st time comer. Lots kids at camp site so noisy before 11pm. After that, back to quiet night. Well maintained restrooms and shower stalls.

We felt discriminated. Kept being told to be quiet when everyone else around us were being loud and walking around with flashlights.
Sep 08, 2014
VERY impressed. Lots of activities, friendly staff always greeting us, clean facilities, and more. Enjoyed it so much we will be back next month ;)

Thank you Ventura KOA for the priceless family memories. We loved sleeping in teepees, swimming, zip lining, jumping pillow, rock wall and big foot hike. It was endless fun. We hope to come back soon!

good location, lot of activities including pool. kids enjoyed it. Little too crowded and sites are too close to each other. Little difficult to sleep at night if your neighbors are talking. Staff are kind of rude. We had a tent site booked and it says maximum 6 people. But they asked us to pay 6/nt for 5th and 6th person. i.e if 6 people stay i have to pay $36 for 3 nts.it isnt mentioned anywr

This kampground does not deserve the KOA brand. There are not enough basic facilities (such as showers and toilets) and the ones that are available are old and gross. They recently opened up a new pool, which is conceptually nice, but it is completely undersized for the amount of guests. Big rocks are in arbitrary places, making navigating your car risky (not safer) for the people walking around.
Sep 03, 2014
It was ok there's only a couple of things there was no mention that the creek was dry and the swimming pool was not mentioned on their website so we didm;t bring the kids any bathing suits and on our last night around 1 AM a big tree trunk fell on our neighbors SUV missing ours closely, it was scary and could have been worse if it fell on one of the tents.

El mejor campamento en el q hemos estado.

My family and I had a wonderful time at Ventura Ranch. It was more than we expected. Great shaded campsite and a beautiful evening/night sky. It was a six hour drive for us but well worthit.

Sophia, Chanda & Chelsea were incredibly helpful in our stay being amazing. The housekeeping & pool staff are always hustling & much appreciated. We'd have liked to be able to use the zipline on Labor Day but it was closed.

We love it and definitely we'll recommend KOA to a family and friends, I want to thank Erika for all her help she really make us to feel welcome to the KOA campsite and for sure we are planning to come back next year.

The tent sights are a little out of the way. Great for some not so great on a motorcycle. The staff let us borrow a cooler and put a bag of ice in it and even delivered it to our sight. Very nice of them.

The place was ok, the kid's enjoyed the zip line and the swimming pool.The restroom always clog, too many bee's in our area, the people in the office are rude.if your planning To go as a group well too many restrictions, we have been to different campsite were kid's can be a kid.but this campsite is very limited.
Aug 27, 2014
Don't stay here Friday-Sunday. Not enough staff, filthy restrooms, unleashed dogs, unruly Sylmar Cub Scouts... or should I say Thug Scouts. Rudest bunch of kids I've ever encountered.
Aug 26, 2014
I've stayed at this KOA 3 years in a row now & I've never had a bad experience until now. On the 2nd day we were there, 2 of the peacocks started banging/jumping on my SUV-a brand new Lexus!!! It left multiple 'claw-like' scratches on the side of my car & more in the front of my car! I called the office & they said that there was nothing they can do?!?! Ridiculous! I left a vm but no calls back?!?
Aug 25, 2014
This was such a great experience and we are so lucky that the pool opened the same day we got there. Highly recommend!

We loved our stay. The site was large, the river had water in it, the bathrooms were clean and functional. Loved the free showers! The only drawback was the bouncy pillow was not inflated at some times when the schedule said it would be and my 3.5 yr old son was pretty disappointed about not being able to jump. It took almost an hour for someone to come start it up. =( Otherwise, great!
Aug 25, 2014
The staff was very friendly and accommodating, especially Kenny. He went above and beyond to get us moved to another campsite with shade. The only downside was, our new campsite was directly by the playground so there were teenagers there past 10:00 on both Friday and Saturday nights using the swings and making a lot of noise, I tried looking up a # for security but could not find one on your site

We LOVED going to this KOA! Our first time camping with a 5-year old. Teepee was awesome and made it easy. Lots to do for kids. Pillow bounce was hot. Pool not ready. Creek dry but still a fun trip. We'd go again!
Aug 22, 2014
The staff was very rude, we booked two sites and we were placed on either sides of the park. When we asked to move closer together, the girl at the counter rolled her eyes.
Aug 20, 2014
The campground was clean and staff was helpful. We were disappointed the pool was not be available and the noise of the cars outside the camp woke us up each morning. Also, we paid for the extra activities and felt it was not worth it. There were only 5 peddle cars in operation and the line for the rock wall was long all the time. Plus everything is in the sun. No Shade!
Aug 20, 2014
Campsite was private. Nice shade. Amenities were great. Wished the pool was available for use. Bathrooms were clean. Nice showers.
Aug 20, 2014
The campgrounds were nice, activities were convenient. We were bummed that the pool was closed and the Big Foot Hike full. We were looking forward to both of them. Thank you.

The campsite we were assigned was shady and pretty, on the other hand, the pool was closed, the restrooms near our site were dirty, the shower dripped when not in use (we are in a drought!), the toilets were not flushing properly. Trash was not emptied from Oaks area over the weekend. Poor signage and site designation in camp area- it took us 30 mins to find our site when we arrived at night.

I loved it all. It is very kid friendly which made it a relaxing time for me the parent.

We stayed in the tent campsites and had a good time. Our neighbors did not abide by the quiet time curfew but we didn't feel the need to complain. We will be going back and staying in the Teepee's. They looked like fun.

Great accommodations. Loved the Sunday pancake breakfast.

The first two nights a noisy college group kept us up till midnight then three in the morning. After every other camper complained at the office KOA staff responded, security removed their alcohol and stayed on their site the entire night. We didn't hear a peep!! While I feel that should have been their response the first night & second night we were all impressed with how it was finally handled.
