Had a great weekend family get away. I want to come back in the summer.

I have to admit, that out of all the KOA's we have stayed, this was absolutely the worst site ever. Personally, I like clean and grassy campsites, not everyone does, of course. So, let me say that the photos in the advertising is deceiving. And, they have the trees from Hades that deposit the worst "stick to everything" seeds and creates a mess everywhere. We left after the first day!

Nicely kept grounds and friendly staff. Good value for the money. Close to fun River activities! Enjoyed our stay.

Staff were great; very helpful and accommodating. Grounds were clean and well-maintained.

The campground was nice and clean and quiet however we did not know that camp activities don't start till May and there isn't much to do around town. The lake is dry and you can't go boating except for one small part. I don't think we will go back especially for the price.

The power plugs on the counter didn't work Causing issues when we are trying to use appliances This was the same condition as last time I stayed in the same cabin I mentioned it then Is there any way to get them working again?
Apr 05, 2016
We probably overlooked the part about activities being seasonal, but if not, please add the months that they start and stop each year. Thanks.

Very clean, quiet and extremely friendly staff.

First timer to KOA and it was a good experience. We enjoyed our trip and may come back to this one and will try out other KOAs.

The staff is extremely helpful and the location is beautiful. If you are into outdoorsy things-to-do, this is a great place. Easy to get to, quiet and the cabins are great.

Friendly attentive staff. Went out of their way to help out and show us what was around to do.

roads and parking lots are old and rocky, hard for kids to ride bikes and enjoy. hot water was issue to say the least.

The staff was super! The facility was nice except for the sticker and dirt. We would have loved to have more grass or green, however, I also understand the water situation.
Mar 29, 2016
The site was so well decorated! Very pleasant and helpful staff.

I thought there would be more grass and the men's restroom needs to be cleaned better. Overall it was ok

Love your place, and very convenient, everything is there that makes camping easier. Just one note, please try to repair the running water in the ladies toilets. Being from the Bay Area where the drought is really apparent this really bugged me.

I liked the small cabins. Not far from the lake. The bathrooms could use better cleaning. They need a deep cleaning, like bathroom stalls and walls. Designated parking spots next to each cabin would be nice too. No confusion on which side to park your car at. I had to ask my neighbor to move their car to their other side because I had no spot next to my cabin. They were told right and I left side.

Great staff, good location!

1 night with truck camper. Arrived late. Didn't really use any amenities. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Have stayed here a couple of times before in the little log cabins.
Mar 14, 2016
The cabin was very quant and cozy. The queen bed was a little firm for our liking. The over all campground and experience was excellent.

We were on our way to Death Valley... a great spot to spend the night... very helpful staff.
Mar 07, 2016
It was a quite park. When we did have questions the staff answered them with a smile.

Loved the cabin, decorations, amenities, and personnel staffing the campground. I had to change reservations several times and they were always very accommodating. As for Lake Isabella, I suggest eliminating the dam entirely and return the area to its former glory of beautiful Kern River valley. I wrote the corps of engineers rep an e-mail with that suggestion

This was our first time with our new travel trailer. Everyone at the KOA was great and helpful. Bob, who helped us with unhitching, was great! You have a great team.

I like all the people at Brian and kims place it's more like we are friends over the years I've watched how much work they all have done to make it a good place to camp at and how much work they put in to make your stay pleasant

My fiance and I usually make the drive out to the Lake Isabella KOA to get away from the 40+ work weeks and all that is tied to supporting ones way of life. We both enjoy the privacy allotted to us in our cabins as wel as enjoy the fact that that particular KOA is a stop on a long stretch of road. Quite a place thats always good to us.

Cabin we stayed in was clean and comfy.

My fiancé and I love this place. Very friendly staff and spending time in the cabins and in the beautiful surrounding nature is incredibly romantic. The only issue is when staying next to other families who have children. They tend to wake up early and you can hear everything in the small cabins. They also tend to book people directly next to each other even when there are other available cabins.

Always friendly staff. Anything you need they'll help you. Family friendly activities and nice restrooms/showers. Our family's favorite spot to camp with plenty of off road vehicle access for all ages! Love Isabella Koa!

Kids had fun, and the cabin we stayed at was very clean.

Interesting place...only KOA I've been to with a bar! That was a plus. The amount to deco was over the top. Just be clean and friendly! The bathrooms needed attention. The spider webs in the windows and showers were beyond acceptable. This should be addressed at least weekly. Get rid of the dust and hair collecting decor in bathrooms. Highest priced propane I've seen! Limited laundry facilities
