We had a wonderful time. Our campsite was big, shady and super quiet. The bathrooms were close by and very clean. I would definitely recommend to others. The location gave us easy access to nearby beaches. We would stay again.

Our stay was last minute and we got there a little early and they were very accommodating and had our cabin clean and ready for us even before check in. Then we had some friends come visit and they ended up renting a cabin nearby and the staff was very friendly and helpful to any of our questions. We will most definitely be staying here again!!

My family camping trip here was great! The staff was very informative and accommodating, especially since we booked last minute. This KOA has everything you could possibly need to have a fun trip. We had small children in our group and they had a blast. I would definitely come back in the future.

I had to make a last minute reservation for a stay over during a road trip. I left a message and quickly received a reply! Very accommodating for both my dog and myself. Had a range of options from tent site all the way up to a cabin. Should I find myself in the area again, I would not hesitate to stay here again!

Front Office were kind & great when we had questions. The area was great for our family. Water Slide & movie night were awesome. Planning on telling our family and friends for a future getaway.

Cabin 88 was AMAZING! cabin 21 -perhaps it would have been best if we had known it shared a wall with a couple that decided to have a fight and made lots of noise. Space #27 Will not be chosen again for our daughter. With 7 family members all together it was a good thing we had 88 as the other 2 sites were not conducive for shared meals. WE WILL BE BACK though, we have our spots picked out.

Perfect weekend getaway! Staff was so friendly, helpful and welcoming. We stayed in a Yurt and that was amazing! This location is awesome. Close enough to go to the beach or the lake for the day! Can't wait to go again.

This place is awesome. My family and I have been to many KOA’s and the staff here are by far the best. Overly accommodating when they can be and some of the nicest people we have ever met. This is by far our favorite KOA to visit. Largely because of the staff. Thank you guys again and we can’t wait to return

Hade a great time. everything was clean, other campers were pleasant and very considerate. Store staff were very kind and helpful.
Jun 22, 2020
The staff was very friendly and super helpful. However ti seems they are trying to cram as many spots into tight areas as possible. We had one site that if we would have fit it was so narrow I don't think we would have been able to open our awning you had to sit behind the trailer. Thankfully they moved us and it was a much nicer pad.

We enjoyed our stay but there was a lot of construction which we know had to be done but it was not quiet. We are planning to return at the end of July and hopefully most of the construction will be completed. We had a nice bike ride to Santa Maragarita Lake and also hiked. We hiked around the camp and saw Kevin the Emu. All the KOA people were very nice, helpful and friendly.

The yurt was more than enough room for our family of two adults and two tweens. The radiator helped to keep the night comfortable (overnight temps dropped to the 40’sF). The staff were friendly, professional and accommodating. The amazing variety of the wildlife was the real cherry on top. We spotted a deer our first night, woodpeckers and blue jays in the morning, quails in the afternoon.

Huge site, 3 tents are enough. No bugs. Great camp ground.

There was so much noise. I didn't sleep a wink.Lots of people there to party and not be concerned with other peoples stay. But the campsite itself is beautiful and I would happily return when the season quiets down.

Helpful staff and great location
Jun 15, 2020
All was great except for one main thing: THE MATTRESS was terrible just old and absolutely uncomfortable. It crunched and no support what so ever to the point of unable to sleep...fortunately we only stayed 3 nights. Again we really enjoyed everything just couldn’t sleep.

Beautiful and unique campground! The staff were wonderfully friendly and the campground is beautiful! We will be staying again. Thank you!!!!

My grandchildren especially liked the pool and we all enjoyed fishing at the nearby lake. The KOA staff is exceptional and they made our trip pleasant and stress-free. We locked our keys and phones in our camper and Kim stayed way beyond her duty time to make sure we were able to get help from AAA. We frequently popped into the well-stocked office/store and were always greeted with helpful/pleasant personnel.
