Music blaring upon arrival, back lot restrooms were filthy, two heavy wooden pallets, that I had to move, were in our site even though there were several other site sitting empty.

Smallish sites, close to the highway. Overall not the fanciest KOA. It gets 5 stars because it is the best campground in the area. I cancelled my original campground plans elsewhere, lost my $50 deposit and gladly did so. While Barstow KOA is not the fanciest, it is definitely better than other choices. Thank goodness!

It was fun, we loved it. We stayed in a safari tent and parked our cars next to us. We ended up parking in someone's space. I don't think the safari tent has it's own parking, and at the end we think there was a parking area/lot.

Check in was fast and easy. Tent site was a little small, and with no other tent campers in the park we were disappointed that the only other tent campers, who arrived at 1am, were assigned the site right next to ours. Could have spread us out a bit. Woke us up. Also, price was a little steep for the location. Not quite the oasis the website claims it is.

We stayed in one of the safari tents, it was clean and roomy. We also reserved the club house for my granddaughters birthday party. everything was great, the staff were very helpful, whatever we needed they made sure we had it. the pool is great, and the kids loved the playground and jump pad. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you all for making my granddaughters birthday so memorable.

The facility was really clean and most of the staff (all but 1) was very friendly and helpful. We loved the game room and playground.

Shower and bathroom near back of camp could use some remodeling. Also access to more than one bathroom would be better. Only one door was unlocked. But other than that. Place was clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

I am a tent guy when I go camping. The bathrooms and showers are always clean. A nice place to stay. I stayed on a Friday, Saturday, and left on Sunday. Easy in and out.

It was very close to the freeway making it very difficult to sleep in a tent. It was over priced compared to much nicer KOA's is much nicer locations. $35 for a tent spot is crazy high. I can get a tent spot in a wooded area on a creek for $25

Online it said they would have an easter hunt . No egg hunt . They should have activities for kids through out the day especially if the pool is closed and it’s a holiday weekend . Kids look forward for activities.

I really enjoyed my stay here. Unfortunately we had very little time to enjoy it as it was a quick stopover on our way through.

Wonderful, peaceful, quiet. Rented a barrel for a fire and purchased firewood and the wood and the barrel directly to my campsite for me! Wished I had planned on a two night stay vs a one night stay.

Very nice staff. They also let us borrow a small space heater on a very cold night. Thank you

Richard was welcoming and very helpful despite the late hour. He needs a pay raise. ;)

Always a nice stop on a longer trip. Have stayed here several times. Peggy Sues Diner is always a reason to stay here.

Love this campground! We have been coming here for the last 5 years and continue to come for the Calico Ghost Town Halloween events. It's clean, safe and the staff is wonderful. Campground continues to be upgraded every year. Really enjoy the magician and the fire girl show! The site decorating contest was so much fun! Thanks Barstow KOA for everything.

I have stayed here several times for an annual event and it seems like the maintenance was not as good this year. The main bathrooms and showers were very clean and well maintained but the other bathrooms are a broken down dirty mess. I usually rent an RV space but this year rented an Safari tent. The tents could use some repair and updating. They need to install working swamp coolers in them.

The bathrooms near tent sites are in unacceptable condition. Only two open. As a return tent site camper I note number of sites increased in same area. (Cramped now) Cost has increased approx. $12.00 per night. Over all experience since last year. Not improved.

I asked for our campsite tent with electric near the restaurant and he gave us a tent site at the back of the Camp and there was about 10 campsite where the electric closer to the restrooms being handicapped having to get up at the middle of the night that was not good

Stayed overnight in a tent. Nice enough campground for that. Has all the features that one expects from KOA.

I've camped here several times. One of my favorite places. Being near Peggy Sues' diner is a plus.

Friendly staff, booked a premium shaded place and found myself in a bare wooden box with a tiny roof on one side, norhing to feel comfortable, and 100 degrees hot and loud because of the highway right next to the campground

Bathrooms dirty and unbearably hot. No air conditioning and bad smell

Toilets and showers were not standard compared with other KOAs. Tent sites were not very clean and prepared well.

Pretty disappointed with this KOA. I am a Mama traveling with kids and I called ahead the day of my reservation to confirm what to do with a late arrival...they put me on hold and then never answered the phone and when I tried to call back I got voicemail. Our campsite was full of cigarette butts and a little trash. The fella who did our late night check in was however very friendly.

I really like this KOA campground. It is really close to Calico Ghost Town. The pool was clean and refreshing. Nice play ground for the kids and game room. Bathrooms were clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My only complaint was the toilet paper was not replenished. It seems like they stocked it once a day then did not check back to make sure there was enough.

Hmm...hut wasn't really clean. One toilet was blocked, no one seemed too concerned with fixing it. Some of the showers were out of order. Some of the showers you had to pay for, which really should be inclusive in price. Pool was good. Rec room was pretty disgraceful and hardly useable. Free wifi only worked next to the pool. Some of the huts had aircon, but ours didn't. It was very hot inside.

The bathroom and club room are disgustingly dirty. My six year old walked in and said "oh, smells like when our dog had puppies". It was awful, we left after being there for 10 hours. It was the worst KOA we have stayed in.
