Bathrooms were very very dirty. From blood to mud. it was all there. My girlfriend said that while she was in the stall, a guy entered the bathrooms to clean it which is unacceptable when the stalls are occupied. We saw that the cleaning time was from 10:00-11:00am so made it a point to go freshen up by 9:00 am but they came in unannounced at 9:15. This is unacceptable.

I would definitely stay at this campsite again especially during the off camping season when nobody else is around. It was quite and the amenities were clean.

It was an all around great stay at Kern River KOA. Everyone that worked there always has a smile on their face and were helpful. They even let us move camp sites to a shaded area and it was a great move.

This rating has nothing to do with staff and amentities those were great. My rating is based on the tent site layout. There are no barriers between tent sites ( I.e logs, stones). Tent sites have hardly any shade and we could not park our car on the site. Our parking spot wasn’t conveniently located near our site (#4) and the site was right on the road. We were so insulted we ended up just leavi

Started out as great family vacation. Unfortunately it turned into the worst camping experience I have had with my family. The Manager of the campground threatened to make the last part of our stay unpleasant and she did. The other staffers were great, and could not help my family except to apologize that this Manager was know for this and the other Manager was out sick. No good publicity from us

My husband and I habe stayed here before and loved it. This was our 11 year old daughters first time camping and she had a blast! The staff was amazingly nice! Bathrooms are always clean despite the bugs which hey we are camping bugs are to be expected! The other campers are friendly and camp sites are clean and large!

Unfriendly staff. There was a leak at our site and they took their time fixing it. It almost flooded our site. They advertised activities on their website, but were all cancelled for the weekend, then at the last minute they decided to have 1 of the events, the ice cream social, but didnt inform their campers. Pool was not maintained, it had a lot of water beetles, a sign of lack of chemicals

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!

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.

It was great.

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.

We had a great time. The entire KOA had a lot of charm. The employee named Summer was particular friendly and helpful. We'd definitely come back.

We asked for a “quiet spot please” and we got a site next to the busy road. No other options were given to us. We got little sleep and we left early.

We had a great time!! All of the staff was super helpful and friendly!!

Showers and toilets were quiet dirty and as there were just a few other guests this must have occurred because of a lack of cleaning. Pool area was run down as well :-( Not what we were used to from KOA Campgrounds...

You guys Rocks..thank you my family really loved is great Only one recommendation. To have same one at night time to advice visitors from the quiet hours after 10:00pm..beside that is really cool place..

very nice camp, great tent site. beautiful surroundings.

This is my first KOA stay. Some of the family that stayed was their first time camping. In short the staff was very friendly, accommodating, and went out of their way to serve us. My kids thought that the bathrooms were clean and appreciated all the immenities. Some of the sites are small so get in early to get a better choice and the Kern is not in walking distance. Perfect cell reception.

I had a very much appreciated shaded site. It was shaded by two big and thick mulberries all day long. The site had water and electricity. The electricity was cut a few hours before my checkout. This was particularly annoying as I was trying to take care of some business on my laptop, which was plugged in. For this reason I wasn't able to finish. Shower clogged, and a little dirty.

My family had a great visit! We enjoyed the pool, panning activity, and the friendliness of the staff. The showers were clean and facilities cleaned daily. The kids had a fun time at the playground and splash pad. The store had a wide variety of items for purchase, everything we needed and forgot we needed. If we were local, this KOA would be our go-to camping spot!

The Kampground was as expected with some minor issues. Main issue - quality of the bathrooms. We don't expect a 5 star clean especially with the uncaring guests who trash the bathrooms without regard for others. However, drains in the shower stalls were clogged causing standing water and unsanitary conditions. The management and employees were incredibly friendly and helpful!!!

I did not appreciate the loud music played by someone else there. I asked them to turn it down, they did not. The staff didn't seem to care either since it wasn't "quiet hours". People didn't respect others when it came to noise - they weren't the only people playing loud music. People screaming over each other - if you turned the music down, you could maybe hear!

Very friendly welcomming, clean bathrooms, great pool to cool down in summer

On arrival, we found a few items at our site and moved them to the vacant site next to ours so the owners could easily find their belongings later. Soon after, the owners came back and angrily confronted us, saying they had reserved the same site. Management had double booked the site. We were harassed twice afterwards by these other customers. I hope the staff will be more careful in the future!
