Campground Reviews

Stayed for a softball tournament. My special request to be in a cabin next to our friends was easily fulfilled. Everyone was very friendly.

Unfriendly receptionist. Kids riding bike rentals out of control. Overpriced firewood.

Great for my grandchildren. A little far for gas or food. Good connections. Family oriented.

Unlike any KOA we have ever stayed at. Very few of the staff were friendly. Maybe we are just spoiled from other KOA’s, but there was no greeter or a person to take us to our site like every KOA we have been to. This KOA was extremely crowded! Had higher expectations knowing we were paying top dollar at over 150 a night. We will never stay here again.

Hands down, THE BEST KOA we’ve stayed at! Planned ahead thoughts from the staff were all noticed, friendly staff, clean facilities, clean throughout the grounds, you guys have spoiled us!!!

Kids really enjoyed the playground, and the campground was well maintained. However, the after-hours noise was a major problem. There needs to be someone making rounds to remind campers to quiet down at night. One night my parents were kept up until 1:30am by a party next door. I don’t think it’s fair to require campers to have to complain in order to ensure rules are adhered to.

We enjoyed the safety for the kids and activities- my grandson had a very fun time and easily met and played with other kids

We took our twin 8 year old granddaughters camping for the first time in our new (used) rv. We have been to this KOA several times over the years and have always enjoyed it. The staff is very friendly, and the new changes to the play area are wonderful. My only suggestion would be to have umbrellas in the jumpy area for some much needed shade.

This place is a kid's paradise, and I have to say, as a parent, I loved it, too. The management is truly on top of EVERYTHING. It is so organized, so well-maintained, and extremely pleasant overall. I especially enjoyed the showers and bathrooms - WOW! Nicer than my bathroom at home. haha. I loved the dog parks, the playground, and the moonbounce thingy for all ages. It was just great!

Great campground for kids!

We loved our deluxe cabin - the only thing that was uncomfortable was the sofa bed sleeper. We could feel the springs and it creaked every time there was any movement. It was pretty uncomfortable and knowing that I would have brought something else to lay on top. Overall, a great family friendly place and would definitely come again!

We always have a fabulous time! Our site this time was a little small but we were allowed to have my kids put up their tents. It was cozy close and this did not affect our great time as a family.

Large KOA well operated and managed. Always a great time!

We rented multiple cabins for a group vacation for a week. It is so enjoyable to have a safe and fun place for the kids to roam about while enjoying each other's company. Thank you KOA!

I liked our the cabin and appreciated the air conditioning and private shower. I feel that for the price we paid - it was not necessary to ask us to take out the trash. The campground was well run and clean and I also liked the convenience store that was very well stocked.

Such a great campground for kids/families! We take our granddaughter here every August - this was our 5th year in a row. Love the improvements you have made in the beach playground area. And the pool area is fabulous. Thank you for providing shade and tables.

stayed 4 days and it was easy to get to everything we wanted to do. The freeways are like LA traffic, stop and go stop and go but had a nice time at the KOA. Pool, hot tub, clean showers and restrooms, dog friendly with dog path and gated dog area for dogs to run around. Really like this place.

Great park. There were a lot of cigarette butts in our camp. And after notifying staff that there was feces in the pool, I expected it to be closed for longer than it was; less than an hour. Some staff was not very friendly but for the most park our stay was good.

Loved our site and the Airstream. We kept our windows open and noticed the window casings had lots of dirt/mold and on the inside of the casings. Other than that the trailer was clean and the cupboards were wiped down. We used the public showers and found them terrific. Loved all the activities. Loved the train and all the kids riding bikes!! Pool was very nice! We will be back.

A great stay but ladies showers were not very warm. Shame the mini golf has gone.

Unfortunately, this stay I was camped next to someone in a tent and I was not at a tent site . Who ever this man was would go to sleep late after drinking and go into his tent and talk not sure if in his sleep or was awake , but profanity and moaning noises and just out right nasty noises all night long. Why was this guy allowed to stay in a tent in a non tent area?

Place is great, well kept, but the staff in office . I didn’t want to leave at 11:00am so I asked the office if I could pay for another night (cash) and I would leave later that day instead of the 11:00am they said that I couldn’t ... kinda sad turning away money in your pockets ... not like the place was full it was in the middle of the week I’m sure something could have been done ..
