Staff was very friendly and helpful in a timely manner. It was our first Glamping trip, and with all the rain the last month...pretty muddy.

We stay here every February and the staff is always accommodating and friendly. Our cabin is always clean and well kept. The roads were a little washed out by recent rain but they did a great job of fixing it for us. I LOVE this KOA. Thank you for all you do!!!! I can't wait to see your new store. :)

I will say the staff is extremely friendly and apologetic for off season conditions, one night was free. The Camp Store was closed for construction It was heavy rains, the roads in the camp ground were washing out. There was no cell service or wifi connection. The phones weren't working to call ahead for a reservation. The bathrooms were clean but old and way up a hill. Beautiful setting,

The cabin was so comfortable, we really enjoyed our time just hanging out in the cabin during the rain storm. Highly recommend cabin #80 at the Santa Margarita KOA.

So beautiful! My kids had a great time on the jumping pillow. Friendly staff, and we loved Kevin the Emu. Definitely would go again!

I came to stay on Jan.2nd 2019. This is the second time that I have stayed here and am very comfortable when I stay at the KOA. On this trip when I showed up at the store to check i was asked if I was for sure camping outside and I said that that was what I could afford. The gal explained that it was going to be 25 degrees and Was concerned about my welfare . Great Staff

We love it there it was our second time staying . The staff is amazing . The only problem we had was our cabin smelled like someone had been smoking weed in it for weeks and it took A couple days to get out and our other cabin smelled like smoke.

Everything was great. The staff, management nice and helpful. Very accommodating. The ammenities were good, however, we didn’t have a chance to thoroughly enjoy because of the cold winter temps. Very close to the very pretty lake. The only critique is wifi did not work well even with few guests present. For an area without cell service, wifi becomes important. Hopefully they’ll improve further

The office lady was very nice and helpful. Our stay was great! We needed a second heater and she quickly unplugged the office one and handed it to us! The power went out of our cabin after we were all set up, but this same lady drove down having noticed it right away and immediately set us up in another! Wow! What service! YES, we definitely would recommend this KOA to others!

Camping in the tent was perfect but chilly, moving into a cabin the second night was perfect and WARM.

We stayed in the deluxe cabin loft model. Even though it was December we enjoyed our stay. Weather was great and boys had a great time and made great use of the bouncing pillow. Our hosts were great help in assisting us as we planned the trip to ensure we had the essentials. We will definitely plan another trip!

Restrooms & shower nearly impossible to get to.. have to climb a steep set of stairs. Old and nasty. Roads washed out by recent rains. Don't bother to drive all the way out here

This is our 3rd time staying here and honestly because of Kim and the rest of the staff we really don't want to camp anywhere else. We rented the cabins for the first time and they are great. Wish we could afford to do these more but when we can we will !

Kim was awesome and very hospitable!!! We enjoyed our stay in a cabin and appreciated seeing the KOA staff monitoring the grounds day and night!

We come every year for thanksgiving and it’s better every year.

Just wonderful, staff is friendly. Kim Ann is the best. Cabinets are clean and comfy. We will be back again and again.

Kim was without a doubt the perfect camp host! Her greetings and smiles made our stay more enjoyable with each trip in and out of the campground! I can’t say enough about how great Kim was to us thorough out our stay! Really made us feel welcome and comfortable. KOA is pricey but the park was nice and we enjoyed our stay very much. If price was no object, I would recommend this spot higher.

Michelle was amazing. Actually everyone we met took such good care of us. I was there with my Niece and Daughter and we felt so at home. Thank you for providing such an amazing experience.

Enjoyed a cabin with our family! The staff is so kind and helpful and the camp store was well-stocked for last minute "necessities". Wonderful time overall!
Nov 21, 2018
Jumping pillow is super fun! Its a 5-minute bike ride to the lake and trails. The yurt is our favorite camping option. The staff are helpful, plentiful, and friendly. Flush toilets and showers! Clean!

We had a great stay! Timed it just right to do some star-gazing....chilly nights! Glad we could have a fire...maybe the only thing is to note on the site how far (the distance) the water supply is from the camp fire ring. I brought a hose specifically to drown our fire but it was too short! Everything was awesome! Jumping pillow, horseshoes, Kevin the Emu...what a blast!
