We stayed for three days and during that time the bathrooms were never cleaned! Thousands of dead mosquitoes everywhere and a simple wipe down would have been nice! Also, the camp kitchen was ill-kept, dirty and mostly broken gas ranges that had worn knobs. Hard to tell which ones were working because dials were wore down. All kid activities cancelled. What a shame!

V hot but the shade and the breeze under the cottonwood trees was just lovely. Staff helpful and friendly. Bathrooms need a bit of a facelift.

Very nice campground. The tent sites are huge, and have lots of shade. Clean bathrooms and a laundry room. The only thing that would make it better is if the store had more food stuff for sale.

Staff excellent, shame the stay was generally marred by some other campers being less than considerate; noisy and brash. The facilities were cleaned daily, but were often dirty with a lot of flys, compounded by inconsiderate other campers; rustic feel to site may not help people take care of facilities. The pool was good as was the shop, bar and pizza.

I really enjoyed the KOA. We will more than likely be back. The grounds need to be cleaned up of all the dead plants in planters or just removed. They would kill all the bugs in the bathroom and leave them over night instead of just cleaning them up. Check the toilet paper before the office closed for the night. That kind of thing would really improve the feel of the camp.

We left before even spending one night due to the 7.1 earthquake. Which has nothing to do with the KOA. However the cabin we had rented definitely needed some repairs. I do not feel it was worth the money that I spent..(even though we didn’t stay) we had been to this KOA on multiple occasions but they have changed management and not for the better. Pool furniture was broken.

Too much dust, quads riding around camp, dumpster over flowing all week, bushes dead in buckets, no dog poop bags, we left a day early. The best part of the campground was the beautiful shade trees.

Well placed as far as seeing the area. Comfortable stay and great little pub. Friendly staff.

The campground was extremely dirty. We will not stay here again. The bathrooms have not been cleaned for a long time and it looks like garbage hasn’t been picked up for at least a week or two. There also is not ample space between the sites. Very disappointing! The only positive is that we only stayed one night.

Overall our stay was great, the only reason I’ve not given 5 * was due to the splash pad at the top of the park leaking causing a stream of water to run from the top of the RV park to the bottom. This caused the area outside our Van to become soaking wet. Toilets could have been cleaner, but no real big deal.

I stayed in 1 of the 3 cabins + 4 rv spaces our troops rented for the weekend. Upon arrival (after asking what time they would be) they informed me that there would be NO ice cream social & NO pancake breakfast on Sunday. I asked why and they said they just where not doing it. You had over 38 people very unhappy. The troops had nothing for kids/adults to eat on Sunday. So disappointed in this KOA.

As always, a great stay.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The ladies in the office were so nice to us during our emergency with our little dog. The only thing I would say is the need to have the dumpster emptied more often.

We enjoyed our time and the pool was awesome.

Great spot, great staff.

Office staff is very friendly. Maintenance staff not so much. Facilities are somewhat aging but seem better than when we visited two years ago. Pull thru site users might be frustrated if they hope for satellite tv reception due to large shade trees. But be glad they are there. Hot days! Trash dumpster area unsightly and it attracts flies. Plan on it being a bit rustic and you'll be happy!

Very disappointed in the cleanliness of the Deluxe cabin.We paid a $25 cleaning fee before arriving to the KOA, but do not understand the fee when the cabin was very dirty.We spent the first 20 min.sweeping all of the hair, dust, and dirt from the floors.The bed sheets were dirty.We think that when they put the new bedding on that the bedspread was on the dirty floor making the white sheets dirty.

Nice and quiet!

Nice campground in western style with good facilities. But please note that it is not directly to Lake Isabella. And we experienced a lot of noise of highway 178.

I have never been to a KOA that had an onsite tavern before! Interesting. Beautiful area, just too cold for a tent site, but the cabin was adequate for myself.

Very friendly staff. Free pancakes Sunday morning! Took one star off for landscaping, there are lots of nice shade trees but no grass or other plants, kind of dusty. Would definitely stay there again though.

Really nice campground! Spaces are roomier than at others, easy to get into the back-in sites. Staff is very friendly, the place was quiet and close to the lake. Felt less like a parking lot than many places.

Really run down! Very sad to stay there. So much potential.

Great staff. WiFi was only about 2.5Mb; so nothing outstanding. The handles on toilets needed to be held down to do full flush. Many people didn't realize or didn't care, so often I was greeted by someone's discharge still left in the toilet. Which I was then able to flush by holding the handle down until the water jacket had emptied and finally sent the crap down the drain. Only 1 shower seat.

Charming place.

We stayed here because we needed to take a shower and do laundry. We had a reservation, but did an after hours check in. We were left a map, but not the code for the bathrooms and laundry, meaning we couldn’t take a shower, do the laundry we needed, or even use the bathrooms. Waste of money. The dog walk area is also just a narrow strip of unmowed foxtails.

We stayed for one night In the tent area. The Staff was very friendly and the Campground was clean and we had a good stay.

Sensationell: this campground has a bar with 4 beers on tap. And the beers are very good. But :-( the bar closed at 6 pm

Very nice place, people were great!! too many flies, time of year thing!!

Park needs updating. It was hot and pool would have been nice. Staff was friendly.
Apr 24, 2019
Most disappointed, An extra $25.00 put on the cost of my stay... cleaning fee.... really!!! No indication of it when I reserved the stay. Bathrooms and showers need some work. Maybe the 25 bucks they hit me for can go towards it.

There were plenty of spaces for tents, trailers and cabins for everyone. Lots of $hade and a swimming pool. We had a good time.
