Good stay. Not much to do during the week except swim. Splash pad was weak. Kamping Kitchen should be closer to Kabins and tents.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and would like to return for future vacations. The YouTube videos showed the campground, pool and all suroundings to be very clean. The reality was, the pool was murky, the picnic table at our cabin looked like it had never been cleaned and the group kitchen area was not clean looking.

I was very impressed with the amenities offered here - a great store onsite with everything we needed, an open area where I could walk my dogs, a cooling down area (Splash Place), a swimming pool, and an outdoor covered kitchen to cook and wash dishes. My cabin was clean and comfortable and apart from some loud neighbors, I really enjoyed my time here!

We stayed in a pricey cabin over the weekend. The cabins themselves were not bad. But the toilet and showers were inadequate and filthy. There was no active cleaning operation in place. Showers and toilets were shut down for most of the day.(only one bath house for the entire campgrounds) kitchen sinks were clogged and overflowing all the time! Very unlike other KOAs. Never going back!!!

The KOA was fun. Friendly staff and a lot of things to do for the kids. The cabin, unfortunately, needs attention. A lot of little things don't work right. The lake is a pretty close drive and we had a good time there.

The place was really nice but there were just a lot of bugs that we ended up with a lot of insect bites. The staff were friendly and there was a convenient store nearby. The kids love the pool and they have a big pavilion where you can cook up your food.

Camp ground was clean in all areas I visited. The kids loved the swimming pool and panning for gems. The provided cooking area was a life saver and always clean and tidy.. Staff personal always had a smile on there faces and a cheerful word to share.

A lot of activities for families to stay busy at their campsite. We stayed in the deluxe cabin and we were able to comfortably sleep 4 adults 4 kids, but sofa couch was not comfortable at all. Plan your stay and you can take drives up to hot springs, trail of a 100giants and Kernville for rafting all within in 30min to an 1 1/2 from campsite.

The mattresses in the camping cabins were beyond filthy and stained. The staff were friendly and service was good. Loved the little bar. But we will not stay here again because of the mattresses

The owners are great people - very friendly and involved in their business. There are always activities - ice cream social, movie night, pancake breakfast and more. Close to lots of other activities too. Love this place!

We hiked the 100 Giants trail, hung out by the mighty Kern River, enjoyed the ice cream social and pancake breakfast at the site! Great weekend!

What a wonderful weekend with the family. Staff were pleasant and helpful in every way. We rented a two room cabin the was absolutely adorable. We had a grill and picnic table right outside the door which was nice to cook around and have a fire burning in the evening. The kids were able to swim in the pool and play in the splash pad during the day then in the evening watch a movie under the stars.

Rhonda in the front was wonderful ! The only complaint I have is it would be nice to have a jacuzzi because it is cold and that way you could enjoy some water time and also the employees need to stop smoking near the store every time I went to restroom they were smoking and you had to walk through it. They where al very nice though.

Great facilities. Clean bathrooms and showers, and bonus cooking/washing up area. We stayed in one of the cabins, which was clean and perfect for us.

The eight person handicap friendly cabin we rented appeared to be new and clean. It was comfortable and had all of the amenities we needed, a full size fridge, microwave, and sink. The ac/heating units worked great. We'll definitely be back next year. Thanks KOA.

I've stayed at a lot of KOA campgrounds. In general, they are always clean, well maintained, and friendly. This KOA is no exception. However, the Lake Isabella KOA nearly left me stranded in the cold. Despite multiple calls to notify during the day, there was no key or way to access our reserved cabin when we arrived late. Only a voicemail on an emergency number saved us after 2 hours of cold.


I apologize for your inconvenience, as I did when I came to get you your key. I missed your call and called you right back, then took 10 minutes for me to get to you. That night was the first night for a new employee to be left on their own as I explained to you. this is the first I heard about 2hrs

We stayed in a basic cabin and was disappointed with the mattress on the double bed. It was well worn and coming apart at the seams. The bunk beds were good. Didn't think it was worth what we paid.

Great place to stay. Friendly staff, clean facilities, close to local activities.

Visited the 3rd wk of March for two days leaving early. They said the pump was out in the pool so no pool and would rent us a small banana bike, but not the larger ones. We were in Cabin 57. There was a mouse trap under the bed and the floor was dirty (dead fly) under the headboard. The carpet on the stairs was stained and filthy. Playground nice. Staff friendly.

Loved it!!! So far we have been there twice

Campgrounds had everything we needed. The small shop is great for anything you forgot or need more of, and it's not over priced. Everyone was friendly and loved that they allow dogs. Bathrooms were super clean and was close enough to some wonderful hikes. First and probably the best KOA experience you can have.
