We stayed with a group from our school and had a blast! So many activities and beautiful countryside to explore. The campground was clean and well maintained. Definitely coming back!

My husband and I came to stay for our 5 year anniversary. We stayed here on our 1st anniversary too. It's so beautiful and everyone is so friendly! Our favorite thing is how dog friendly the camp is, and their new dog park! Our 2 pups enjoyed running around the agility course. We loved petting and feeding the friendly emu named Kevin too. We can't wait to come back again!

Great location for a quick getaway (live in Salinas) and beautiful hiking trails around Santa Margarita Lake. Also a couple of great restaurants in Santa Margarita if you do not feel like cooking. Friendly staff and loved our cabin!!

Nunca había tenido la experiencia de acampar con KOA y fue muy agradable utilizar sus instalaciones. Su personal es muy atento con las personas que vamos a disfrutar de un tiempo de relajación. Gracias por compartir esta experiencia con nosotros. Esperamos volver a utilizar sus instalaciones en otra localidad. Saludos.

WONDERFUL, we will be back.

Poorly marked signs for pump out. Too far from campsite to bathroom and laundry. Bathrooms near entrance are long in tooth and moldy. Whole place needs refresh. Roads need gravel. We paid for full hookup and no pump out. Too expensive for one night

We had such a great time at the KOA in Santa Margarita. The staff we very welcoming and accommodating to our needs. We brought our dogs with us and they really enjoyed their time as well. The cabin we stayed in was perfect and very clean. We will definitely be staying here again for a quick weekend getaway.

Beautiful campsite & friendly, helpful service! Nearby tiny family farms provide the chance for a fun drive if you like to look at farm animals.

This is a great place.....the workers were soooo helpful, friendly.....we'll be back!

I have always enjoyed my stay in the cabins at KOA. However, as a senior adult, it would be helpful to have hand holds in the bathroom to assist with use of the toilet and shower. I am looking forward to my next stay. It is particularly helpful during the annual memorial run for my granddaughters.

We always love being and staying there. This time the heater seemed to goining out and they moved us to a better cabin with no extra charge. We absolutely love thst place. We have been going there for the last 5 years. Love it.

While we were the only campers there, Kimmie Ann was so very warm and gracious. She made sure to make sure everything was meeting our standards. While this KIA would primarily be for lake use and families I would recommend it to people who fit that description. We also lived Kevin the emu. Thanks.

We rented two cabins for our family Christmas gathering. The cabins were very clean and had all the amenities we needed. Super friendly staff and always on hand for whatever we needed. We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the grounds. We will definitely recommend this KOA to our friends and will return for another stay in the near future!

Great campground, great service! Even the rain couldn't dampen our spirits. Coming back in summers.
Dec 02, 2019
Had a great time even with the rain. The jumpy was great fun for our 9 kids in group. Kevin was awesome. ....however, your electrical problem was awful. We were afraid for our turkey being cooked and our heaters keeping us warm. Hope you can fix the problem so we can come back next year.

Awesome Thanksgiving week (even with the rain and mud!) Camp hosts were very hospitable and accommodating. Beautiful setting fun primitive cabins-- perfect reset for our tech-addicted adult kids! Quality time was had and we will be back.

Kim Ann and Vince were the best hosts!! They helped us immediately! We had a little power outage and Vince came over within minutes. They were both so nice. I cannot believe how many things there are to do there. I want to go when it is nicer out. I love the jumping pillow, Kevin the Emu, Camp Store and dog play yard. Our little cabin was impeccable.

The campsites were very narrow and not flat. Not a pretty location just Trees and dirt. Large bathroom that needed cleaning.

Had a good time. Campsites were spacious. Grandkids loved the bounce pillow and Kevin the emu. Friendly staff. Easy check in.

Very friendly and helpful staff. I arrived late and it was dark. My fault, but I could have used some help getting into the site. They did help me when I jackknifed my toad.

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.
