We really enjoyed our stay at this KOA. Staff was very helpful and caring. My biggest concern was that the hot water took forever to warm up and then didn't last too long.

We stayed two days in a Deluxe cabin. It was too small for eight persons. I guess the maximum capacity for that cabin should be six. It was too close the the next cabin. We were almost sharing the fire ring and table space with the residents of the next cabin.

When we arrived and saw the play ground, jump pillow, and our cabin, my 8 year old son exclaimed "This is as good as the Legoland Hotel." The cabin and the porch swing were so fun and convenient. We also enjoyed a fire and cooked hamburgers and roasted marshmallows. We also worked on some cub scout requirements. We enjoyed our one night stay so much. We were very sad to leave.

The staff was amazing, I believe her name was Kim she helped us with everything that we needed and more. The yurt that we stayed in was clean and warm and we had an amazing time staying there. Again Kim was amazing and generous and she deserves a raise! She was all about making sure the customer was happy and enjoyed their stayed.

Our stay was wonderful!! We chose the worst possible weekend to take a trip, there was flooding and rain the entire week before. I was worried about the conditions at your park. But we checked in with Kelly Ann and she was FANTASTIC! She eased our worries. She even drove to our cabin so we could follow her without getting lost! Cannot wait to go again during a drier month!!

It was amazing, nothing like what I could have ever possibly expected! And you guys provide a 'jumping pillow' that none of our friends have ever heard of before. Thank you for everything !

We had a great time!!! We have stayed a few times already. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The only thing is the water pressure for the showers but you are in the mountains so how many showers do you need. We will definitely be back!!!

The cabin was very nice and we had plenty of room. The staff at Santa Margarita were very nice and helpful. My wife had a great time for her birthday. Thank you.

Absolutely loved it. The staff was incredibly helpful to us, providing help with our fire when it would not start for the life of us, and also getting my truck started when the battery died. We are incredibly thankful to have been able to run to such caring camp staff. They basically double as my mother when things got stressful :)

We have been coming here for the last few years because of the location and what it has to offer. The staff were all friendly and made the trip even more enjoyable.

This is an amazing camp ground. The staff were extremely accommodating and friendly. I belong to a few camping clubs but my go to camp grounds has always been KOA for the excellent service we receive. This camp ground and its staff is the reason I will continue to camp KOA.

We really enjoyed our stay. Clean & serene. The staff was so friendly and welcoming. I can't say enough good things about them. We would see them making the rounds every once in a while, but we didn't feel "policed". Plus, on the night we stayed there, they had a stargazing event with local astronomers. I think they said they are there once a month. Can't wait to come back!

Our cabin was fantastic for our group! We were in town for a concert at the Pozo Saloon down the street and the KOA was a great base for us. It was nice to have a full bathroom and kitchen to use while also getting to still have a campfire and picnic table outside. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Great stay!

Loved the cabin abd campsite. check in was easy, and site 25 was perfect for a big family

Our experience with this KOA was so positive, we came back again the following year. We were not disappointed, and we received the same warm welcome. We had a large party of cyclists, and were graciously offered adjoining campsites as well as a large-sized grill for the event. We had a wonderful time, and plan to come back again next year. Thank you Santa Margarita KOA!

Had a great time! There were a lot activities for the kids (giant jumping pillow, water balloon fights, badminton, volleyball, hay ride). The bathrooms and showers were clean. The water was hot. The staff was helpful and friendly. We will come again and recommend this KOA to friends.

I wish they had a heated pool. It was just too cold for kids.
