I stayed in a cabin and was FULLY informed of rules but not how to get hot water for showers. Iâve never heard of having to turn a switch on for hot water. Tried to call office repeatedly since office didnât open til 9. When I was checking out and complained of no hot water, I wasnât impressed with the response I got.

We tried the camping Cabin #7. It was very nice. Could use another towel rack and a hook to hang clothing somewhere. Loved the little back yard as it was too hot to stay inside 2 of the days. Pancake breakfast was yummy - thank you. The store was great. The staff were very helpful. The pool was wonderful! Thanks for being there for us !

My stay was great but when we arrived and wanted to check in we were not greeted very kindly. I understand policy and we were a little early but the lady at the front was very rude to tell me that check-in wasn't until 3, which was fine we had joined my family that were already there camping. The staff needs to work on there attitude. The gentleman was very kind when we finally check in


Check-in for RV's is 1pm and Cabin Check-in is 3pm. The guest arrived 3 hours early and without the policy in place, it would be chaos with people coming and going at the same time.

Small spaces for RVs but the cabins are great. Loved the trail.

Always love my Stay...But I see the Staff Changed AGAIN. When I arrived at 12 pm the Lady some what Rudely said I couldn't check in till 3.I didn't see what the couple hours difference was? The Pool Rules also stated no children under 14 in Spa.Some ignorant parents continued to let there children play in the Spa and no staff did anything about it.All in All I still love KOA .


As stated, guest arrived at 12pm and the cabin was not ready. Check-in for cabins is 3pm and check-in for RV's is 1pm. The management has been here for 1 year, and we have had to enforce the check-in time as too many people were showing up before the previous night guests had left the park. In fairness to everyone....check-in for RV's is 1pm and Cabins is 3pm. Thank you for your stay.

Great stay. Nice hosts, clean cabin. Community areas we very thoughtfully planned out. Great community activities: movie nights, pancake mornings. We enjoyed our stay and plan on returning. thank you!

Very nice accommodations. The amenities were also great.

It was wonderful. The staff was lovely. And my teenage son loved the outdoor activity area. We have already recommended the cabins to everyone at home. And it was not too far from Cal Poly, which is why we were down there. Oh, the Bob Jones walking trails was amazing too.

Multiple times the staff encounter was rude and they seem stressed and bothered by my questions. I also heard them be rude to other kampers too so I realized it wasn't just me. I'll chalk it up to the heat wave and holiday weekend this time since our 1st stay was so pleasant and the complete opposite experience of this last stay.

I wish they had individual grills and fire pits but other than that it was awesome. People were super friendly and cabin was adorable. Great wine selection!

We loved it here. Clean and safe campground. Our cabin was right next to the pool which the kids loved. The cabin had everything and it felt like home. My favorite part was the Bob Jones Trail located outside that leads to Avila Beach. We will definitely come back again.

Very good place,nice employees.

The campground was well maintained and clean. I plan on coming back in the fall.

Although it was clean enough, it was overly crowded with vehicles and cabins. It actually felt like a RV park. There aren't nearly enough picnic tables. Cabins apparently don't rate one. We were kicked off of a table because it belonged to an RV spot. The thing is, there wasn't an RV there and no RV came that night. The has BBQ is a mess and catches fire. The staff need to smile more.


Thank you for your comment. We certainly will address the issues you mentioned as we are always looking for ways to improve the campground.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at KOA. It was our first time camping so the deluxe cabins were a fantastic way for us to have a taste of camping in a convenient manner. The staff was helpful and the activities were fun. We look to return again with our grandchildren in the future.

Clean well maintained place, a pleasant surprise in California!

Family had a great time. The cabin was comfortable and the pool was awesome! See you next times.
Jul 29, 2017
The cabin was very nice. There are kitchen with cookwares and dishes, shower with lots of towels, nice bed with beddings, etc. The only thing we wish we had was a picnic table. It was not woodsy like real camping, rather it was like RV park. However our kids had good time playing at the strucute. The swimming pool was cold and we did not stay there too long.

Friendly staff, beautiful flowers and trees everywhere, a great place to stay!

Had a great time and awesome for kids. Wished the pool hours were earlier like 8 and stayed open later like 10pm. Other than that it's a great place to stay. Glad we are KOA members

Realy enjoyed our stay loved the movies they showed at night. Plenty of things to do very clean.

I stayed in a "deluxe" cabin. Deluxe was not a word I would use to describe what I stayed in. I paid $167 per night. It was smaller than a motel room. The pool and hot tub area were not maintained to my expectation. There was lots of debris in both at around noon on Saturday. I would have thought that by that time in the day someone would have already netted out the pool and hot tub.

This was my first stay at a KOA and was very impressed with all the amenities. Gas fire pits, outdoor games, warm pool, and movie nights. Not to mention wine tasting and bike rentals. We stayed in a one-room cabin which was so cozy.
Jul 16, 2017
We really enjoyed our stay. Will definitely come back.
Jul 13, 2017
Great campground, wonderful and helpful staff. Lovely family atmosphere and lots for kids to do within the campground. My 10 year old grandson was torn each day between going out and seeing sights or staying in the camp to play. Over our 4 day stay, we had days of doing both - at his choice.

Nice updated cabin. Great staff. Pool area nicely maintained.
Jul 08, 2017
Facility is great. Staff not friendly and made me feel dumb. Our first "camping" and KOA experience. Manager Debbie was friendly and take the time to talk to me.
Jun 22, 2017
This is a nice clean park. Fairly tight with limited trees at RV sites. Cabins are excellent and the staff is very helpful. Nice pool and picnic areas.
Jun 20, 2017
We enjoyed our stay, but our cabin was very hot in the afternoon and early evenings. The sun was shining right into the windows heating up the cabin. No a/c. The pool was very nice and activities for the kids were fun. Staff was very friendly.

Cabins clean and updates from the last stay were nice! My kids loved the loft and nice that management has put mattresses in the loft, with bedding. I came a day early and management changed my dates and accommodated my request.

Really enjoyed the activities that were hosted during our stay.

Loved the $3 weekend pancake breakfast, the free movie nights, the $1 sundaes, the clean playground/pool and grounds along withthe adorable & clean cabin. I loved that the store/campground had lots of reasonably priced items. The couple who runs the place are a delight. Such a wonderful mother's day weekend. Thank you!

Clean friendly wonderful place to stay

This KOA is great for family's. We had a cabin close to the pool and community area. I would have liked to have a wood burning fire pit at my site, I did not enjoy the group propane pit. The closeness to the 101 has its good and bad.

Clean, cute, and quiet. Great place for families.

people in the office were wonderful had a great time

Campsite was very clean and the amenities were better than expected. The general store / office was well stocked, especially the wine selection. Stayed in a cabin and it was awesome!

We stayed in a cabin and the only negative was the TV reception.
Apr 21, 2017
We stayed in a cabin! It was very comfortable. We walked to a farm stand that has fantastic pies, jams, roasted corn. Pool was fun too. Easy 3 mile drive to beach.
Apr 13, 2017
The only reason I am not giving this place a perfect score is because of the road noise. Everything else was perfect! ;-)

This was a disappointing experience. The check-in staff was curt and the long list of "don'ts" that I had to read and sign at check-in felt quite un-welcoming. My next encounter with staff was someone also telling me about something that I shouldn't do - that I wasn't doing. My inquiry about bike rental was met with a gruff response. The grounds are plain, and cramped. It was OK, not great.

Check-in was quick. Facilities were clean. Easily accessible from the freeway. It feels like camping in the mountains, but you're near the beach. The Bob Jone's Trail is 3 miles from town and a peaceful walk or bike ride. Loved the tiny house we stayed in. We'll be back.

I was not informed when I checked in that I had to turn a switch on to have access to hot water. Ice cold showers are incredibly annoying to say the least. Otherwise a nice stay.
