Effective May 17, 2020: NEW LODGING ORDER FROM SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY (Order will be updated every two weeks…so please check back on June 1st) Santa Margarita KOA must reduce its capacity by 50% and limit camping to Residents of San Luis Obispo County. Guests from Kings, Tulare, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Fresno, Kern and Ventura Counties are asked to postpone visiting the Central Coast for a few more weeks. Our Log Cabins, Tent Sites, Community Restrooms, Playground and Swimming Pool will remain closed until further notice. New reservations will be accepted from San Luis Obispo County residents, essential workers, those in self-quarantine or those needing to leave home for someone else to quarantine. Only full hook-up RV sites and Deluxe Cabins with a private restroom with a two-night minimum may be rented. (No linens, pillows or towels will be provided). Oh yeah, and all of our on-site group activities have been canceled until further notice. The Lodging Order asks that we not accept reservations for leisure, recreation or vacations even though the CDC now says that being outside in the fresh air is healthier than Sheltering-At-Home with Cabin Fever. Please assess your situation and health risk, then give us a call to book a site, reschedule, cancel or discuss an existing reservation. If you book online without adhering to the San Luis Obispo County LODGING ORDER, we reserve the right to cancel your reservation. Thank you for your patience and understanding during the COVID-Craziness. We are still Happy Campers at Santa Margarita KOA (805)438-5618.
