Staff at check in were very helpful in choosing a site. The shower and bath room facilities were clean.

Under “new management” is a joke. I stay here a couple times a year and was treated like crap. After you guys change my cabin after booking it, not telling me I can’t bring my dog (I’ve stayed in all the cabins and had my dog everyone). Only thing changed around the property is 47 signs saying quiet time. Sad to see they don’t care about their regulars. Kinda felt like a joke

Nice and well kept. Very friendly staff. Good views of mountains.

Charmingly rustic with a western theme. New management is in the midst of upgrading and improving everything. 30amp hookups, roomy spaces, lots of trees for shade,a pool and even a bar that makes pizza on premise! If you’ve little ones they have a very cute kids play area and if your kids have four legs, a doggie area. By far the best thing here is the amazing staff!

We never saw the people caring for that KOA. But when we made the reservation they put us right on the highway side. Cars all night. They were pretty empty and could have put us in the back

Shower were minimum. No place to hang clothes etc. (no hooks, stool, seat). Dog run was right next to neighboring property with their barking dogs lunging at us. Prop is literally on the hwy so traffic noise all night.

Clean raked sites and nice staff. It would be nice to have the store open longer. The dog park has shards of broken glass in the decomposed granite ground. That really needs to be addressed.

Great location, nice and peaceful especially if your trying to get away for the weekend.

It was great and the snow on Thursday February 21 was awesome!

The cabin was clean and the heat worked very well, which was important since it snowed during our stay. We just wish we had been there in summer to enjoy some of the kids‘ activities.

Great place. No stove or frying pans in bigger cabins. They do have a fridge and a microwave. Cute and clean.

Everything was very tidy and clean, including the bathroom and showers. The heater worked so much better than I expected since it was very cold out. We were nice and warm. The women who work there are very nice. Woke up in the morning to a view of snow covered mountains, as it had snowed overnight. Nice stay.

Love the scenery. This is a little out of the way but it is worth it. And how many KOAs has a bar? This one does! Staff is friendly.

Very nice facility and friendly staff. Nearby Audubon hiking trail. BUT, quite undesirable bathroom. Dressing area in shower stall had standing water, no mat, so hard to get dressed without soaking pant legs. Limited hooks, no bench so hard to keep stuff off floor. On departure morning, all 4 toilets were half flushed. Worst bathroom in 2 months of traveling. Told staff. Appreciated my comments

We enjoyed the Kamping Kabin we used. It was somewhat confusing when making my reservation in differentiating which Deluxe Kabin we had ordered. We initially had need of the larger deluxe with room for six, and thought we had ordered it. We got the Kabin that had room for four. Fortunately, we had two who could not join us, and the smaller Kabin we obtained worked.

Only complaint is there was no cable or school up.

Clean and lovely cabins. We stayed right next to the playground and volleyball area. Everything was easily accessible. The hosts were very kind and accommodating.

Is very nice we like it maybe next time we come back on summer time on winter is very cold we don't join much but is very nice place

They over booked the cabin I had requested, but to make up for it they provided smaller cabin free of charge next to my sisters cabin for the day I was scheduled to arrive, next day I moved to the bigger one also got a free night due to the number of days staying.

We just did one night, and it was a traveling through choice, not a destination in itself. That said the place was clean and seemed to have plenty of amenities. It is very close to the summer time lakeshore. Water spigot didn't work in morning, but may have been frozen.

There was a water issue. KOA Turned water off while in campground shower with no notice. Our supply of water was empty so we had no water for a day. Not cool. Staff was friendly. Things just seemed off from most KOA’s

Like sleeping in a bucket of Pine Sol. I'm sure it was "clean", but had me gagging. Heat turned up as high as it would go did not get the room above 60.

We stayed only a night in a campin cabin. The cabin was tidy and the heater very much appreciated. The host was very friendly and kind. The bathrooms were tidy and well lit. We were a bit unsure about checkout as we left before the office opened. We just followed the "late check in" instructions posted as we didn't want to wake the camp hosts. Overall a great trip.

Great cabins, clean grounds and helpful staff

Beautiful campsite with all the amenities! Level pad - laundry and bathroom clean. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

The campground is located close to the Lake Isabella and it has little lodges, pull-thru RV sites and camping sites. We stayed at a deluxe lodge which was nice and spacious enough for four of us. It would been better if we came in the summer but we still enjoyed visiting this area. Ski resort is about 40 minutes and the Kern river is about 15 minutes from the campground.

This is a very nice cabin like a resort. It was clean and had a full kitchen include an oven. Two families enjoyed the stay. I love it.

Great place.

We stayed only one night so don’t have a lot to say. Staff was very friendly. Site itself could use some upgrading and maintenance. It’s looking aged. We were the only people camping as it was off season. Not sure we would go back as we probably won’t be traveling in the area.

It was a great stay minus electric issues and septic overflow.

I’ve been there twice (once in the summer a couple of years ago and I recently stayed over the Thanksgiving week) both times it was too windy. The staff was great every time we interacted. It’s just too windy for me.

1st time going to lake isabella/kern river, what a beautiful place. It was also our 1st stay at a KOA. Will definitely use KOA and this particular spot again. Clean restrooms, clean lot, LP gas onsite, general store open until 10 pm, each site has fire pits, RV/Trailer hook ups, benches, decent size lots, playground, etc. also has a pool but we had no need for it, maybe summer time.

Nice and clean facility. Friendly staff

We really enjoyed our stay however there was a few things that we weren’t happy about. The hot water kept going out in our cabin every time we were in the shower so we never got to use the shower which is the main reason we got a cabin in the first place. Then on the morning we were getting ready to leave water started spouting out from the front of the cabin so it made it difficult to load our

We had a great time your staff was friendly and polite. We especially like Becky who made us feel welcomed and right at home!

We love this KOA. This is our 5th time (4th Thanksgiving) and we were so excited to come up. Having missed last year, we were looking forward to the activities they usually put on but this year there was nothing. No tie die t-shirts or beer/wine tasting night. We we’re disappointed. The atmosphere & campground is always great and clean. Staff very friendly, just sad we missed out on some added f

A decent campgrounds with old but ok restrooms / showers. Store had very little RV supplies so not 5 stars. If you rent a cabin for $85 they charge another $10 for bed linens so bring your own. No restroom in cabins either.
