Quick overnight stay, staff very friendly and campground appeared well maintained. I realize the cabins are going to be dusty but for $130 night I at least expect a clean bathroom, free of clumps of hair on bathroom floor etc.

It was great! The little store in the front office was well stocked. The entire camp grounds were immaculate, the bathrooms and showers were also. The little cabins were decorated with white icicle lights which gave a cozy mountain feeling. The staff were extremely pleasant, and helpful! I will make reservations to stay there again!

It was so dirty and dusty!!!! You had us right on the corner between 2 roads and the dust just billowed every time someone drove by. (watering the road might have helped) We had paid for 2 nights, but, left right after the first.

The bathroom needed paper towels for all 4 days we stayed and there were more spiders than usual in the stalls and shower. The new mattress pads are harder than the old ones, they made sleeping a bit difficult. Other than that, everything was wonderful. Thank you.

We got there late 9pm. There was a walkies talkie at the door saying if you need help, please call and directions on how to use it. Campsite is very dark. We have a class A. We found our reservation, yellow card for tow and map. We called for help because of darkness and size of coach. called at least 10 times. We know how to use these walkies we use them for business.Horrible customer servic

Fall in love with fall camping at this KOA. The staff are so warming and welcome, Kim Ann is such a wonderful camp host. The trees are beautiful, the smell of fall in the air, the tarantula visitors and crisp mornings in need of a camp fire. Always a great stay!

The cabin was wonderful but please do something about the driveway. I would like To use the cabin again, but will NOT drive up there again. Very dangerous!!!

Great stay as usual. We come back every year, however the cabin wasn’t the cleanest. Next time check under mattresses- found a ton of candy wrappers and the floors were super dirty.

Extremely attentive camp hosts who went out of their way to help us out. Would definitely stay here again. We showed up late and they didn’t care a bit and helped us carry the stuff we bought (girlfriend and showed up on motorcycles). They make customer service their mission! You will not be disappointed if you stay here.

The place is nice and well kept. The difference for my family was the STAFF!!! Very rarely do you get to experience the genuine and courteous employees like we saw there. We'll be back!! Thank you for the great weekend! I live locally in Atascadero and I will start spreading this positive experience!

Very short stay, arrived after the reception had closed, but our keys were left for us, then we were leaving the next morning around 9am, the kabin was spacious, clean and tidy and the shared bathrooms were also clean and never a queue Wish we'd stayed longer so we could've taken advantage of the facilities, but we'll definitely stay at another KOA when we next visit the USA

We have been to the Santa Margarita KOA a few time and have enjoyed it each time. They keep the area clean, water the dirt roads regularly, have a nice pool, have a great kids area w/ a big jumping pillow, the staff has always been very welcoming and accommodating. The spaces above the play ground are a little close, but that is a minor tradeoff for being able to watch the kids from the trailer.

Cabins were much smaller than advertised on the website. Being “near bath row” meant climbing down and back up a hill to the bathrooms. We had to upgrade to a cabin with a bathroom due to the inaccurate website description. Not likely to recommend. We have stayed at much nicer KOA’s.

Camp sites are spaced apart as much as possible, very friendly staff.

Very pleasant staff. The facility is great for access to Lake Santa Margarita. The campground itself is a bit hilly and somewhat open. Regardless, the facilities are nice.

One of our favorite KOAs. The campground is nice and well kept. They are always making improvements that have made the campground even better. Kim is a wonderful camp host that goes above and beyond to make your stay pleasurable. All of the staff is great friendly and helpful.

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.
