Our cabin was full of dirt, cobwebs, spiders and bugs. Space heater didn't work very well.

Room had leftover food in waste basket which made the room stink. BH2 was very dirty during our stay. Staff lady came by to clean we think but just blew what few leaves were there away. Restroom smelled like urine all the time.Some of the staff's appearance was dingy to say the least.we have stayed here several times in the past and noticed a difference in the up keep and care.. looking for change

I love it here. I can always expect a quiet, clean and well kept site, wether it be a Kabin or a tent site. I had forgotten a towel and the staff was quick to accommodate. I've never had a bad experience here. Kudos Rex and Karen its an all around great campgroundð²ð

The Santa Margarita KOA is one of the most beautiful and restful we have ever stayed at. We plan on returning soon.

Wish it was a little closer to highway to get to Pismo. Other than that, was perfect for our one night stay.

We enjoyed ourselves very much - a few fixable items in our cabin would improve the stay - the bathroom sink does not drain at all; the hot water does not get hot in the kitchen unless you run it on the bathroom; cabins are really nice and well stocked with kitchen items.

We came up for a family weekend and really had a good time. Your office staff is extremely nice and friendly, our cabin seemed pretty new and clean. Was happy it was dog friendly. Quite campground. Giant jumping pillow was a lot of fun from toddlers up to grand parents. I would definitely come back! Thank you for a fun weekend.

The cabin was great

The cabin was easy to find & really cute. I stayed in a small cabin with a bathroom- everything was very clean. The beds were comfortable. There was a quilt on the queen bed with 2 decorative pillows. A dishtowel, dish soap, small sponge, paper towel and toilet paper were all supplied in the cabin. We brought bedding, pillows and towels for our own use. The kids area & jump pillow were fun!

Staff is PHENOMINAL!!!!! I cannot say enough about their kindness and generosity. The only thing I wish is that there more things for the kiddos like other KOAs have (zip lining, bikes, etc).

Everything was perfect!

We really enjoyed our time at this camp ground, cabin was clean and well appointed, staff was friendly and the coastal foothills are always beautiful. I guarantee you and your family will enjoy.

I stayed overnight by myself in a cabin and felt totally safe! The cabin and bathroom facilities were clean and well maintained. The pool area had plenty of chairs and clean as well. The office staff were friendly and helpful. The store appeared to be well stocked with pantry items, wood for camp fires, ice and coffee for the morning. My cabin did not have a kitchen but did have WIFI!. Enjoyable!

great people, extremely helpful and professional. all facilities clean. .5 mile to the lake and easy walk. Only 8 miles to the town of Santa Margarita or Pozo Valley and some very good wine tasting rooms.

It was every thing that was promised. Very nice place, near a lake, and less than 10 miles from Pismo beach. I'll be back

The KOA staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. The cabin we stayed in was very clean. The pool was clean and cool in hot weather. We had a great stay!

We greatly enjoyed our stay for our family reunion. Our cabin was amazingly clean and well-kept, and also well-equipped. Very friendly and helpful staff. Things that could be improved:; the walkie-talkie for calling the staff, when we arrived at night. I didn't know how to use it. A staff member in office would have been helpful for check-in. Also, the meeting place we used .was very hot.

VERY friendly staff, beautiful campsite. Out of the way country location in a good way. The hills and the stairs didn't bother us and added to the appeal. The only thing I'd note for other guests is that the deluxe cabin is a duplex that shares the back wall with another cabin, we could hear the other guests coughing and talking but it wasn't a deal breaker.

Wonderful cabins nice location with lots of fun activities!
Aug 03, 2017
Loved it! Spent one night but wish we stayed longer. Such a variety of activities and a cute clean cabin.
Aug 02, 2017
Everything was great. We just had ants show up the 2nd day. Someone came and sprayed where they were coming in.

My experience at Santa Margarita KOA was great except for a dirty toilet near my campsite, a filthy toilet seat which was dirty at night and still filthy the next morning as well.

We have been staying here for a few years and we LOVE this place. We have the lake close by and activities on site. Cabins are always clean and the staff is always helpfull and pleasant. Thank you Santa Margarita KOA!

We paid for a 6 person cabin. The futon which sleeps two was broken and no one told us. We discovered it when the futon dropped on my foot and injured me. We did not have enough beds given the broken futon.

We had a great time!

Had an excellent stay. Everyone was incredibly nice. Cabin was great, but the bed was extremely uncomfortable. Other than that, everything was perfect!
Jul 19, 2017
It was at a beautiful location with camp sites and cabins in very unique settings. Plus amenities like jumping pillow, pool and hayride were great fun for kids.

The staff was super friendly. One comment is that I think the website does not accurately reflect just how hilly the site is and how much climbing is necessary to use restrooms
