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.

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.

We enjoyed our time and the pool was awesome.

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.

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.

Fun, relaxing stay. Clean camp cabins and facilities. Will come back again.

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.

We had a lovely time and we welcome any time we can come back. We enjoyed visiting Lake Isabell area, Kernville and Johnson bridge. Getting supplies from KOA store.

AVOID! Very small plots for tents RVs and cabins. Nothing to do! If you planning your visit between mid October through mid May - pool, Splash zone for kids are closed. No renting bicycles, no Jumping pillows, playground is super old with screws and nails sticking out. Not kept well: potted plants are dying with espoused root balls. Dog run is blocked by giant weeds. We cut our visit short.

My two sons and myself rented a cabin overnite. The cabin was clean. The staff are super friendly. The restrooms are clean. I really enjoyed our stay. We r coming back.

This site is wonderful but next time I'll come during the summer or fall

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

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.
Feb 20, 2019
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 come a couple times a year because it’s that perfect!

Pleasant, clean cabin and restful. Thank you.

I've stayed at a few KOA locations over the past 6 years. Although I really wanted to give this locations a better rating, I found myself comparing it and came up lacking. My biggest issue was cleanliness and in need of a renovation. I get this is a camping site and the drought may have impacted the vegetation. I don't think there has been any landscaping in years. The staff was nice enough.

Deluxe cabin had bed bugs and no linen at all.
Nov 05, 2018
very plesent. quiet, no roudy louts. let me check in very early. that gave me a chance to get settled & relax before the rest of our group arrived. very nice personnel. i look forward to our club doing another ride in this area & staying here. only bad thing is the high cost.

Enjoyed it very much, low key, pleasant and hospitalble.

I appreciate the fact that this family run campground made things right over a bad situation. This is a well run KOA that is, unfortunately, from time to time, plagued with a derelict element from the city that has no respect for the rules.
