The kids loved Kevin the Emu!

We had a great stay at the Santa Margarita KOA, the grounds are clean and well maintained, it is a beautiful property. The staff are really friendly and keep the place looking great.

Had a fantastic time! Felt like we were in a rustic, deep in nature-type campground, yet had the lovely amenities that make camping easier. The bathrooms were very clean, the recreation areas were fun for all my kids--aged 17 to 2. I would definitely come back again!

We loved everything about this KOA site.. from the friendly staff to the amazing site we had!!!

The restrooms/showers were entirely too far from most of the campground sites. I wish something could be done to give the emu more room; she seemed too confined and paced her enclosure constantly.

The ladies at the front desk are great. They provide a warm welcome and are happy to answer questions. The campground is nicely organized and easy to navigate.

Quiet place, felt sorry for the poor bird in the small cage. What's up with that?
Oct 29, 2017
Super friendly hosts. Excellent wifi. 7 minute walk to lake. Nice!

Enjoyed our stay a lot! The park host was extremely nice and helpful to everyone we saw her deal with. Some sites were very hard for others with trailers to get into. We had no problem, as we had a small rig, but noticed a few others next to us had trouble.

Stayed last weekend for a wedding in Santa Margarita. Nice and shady spot! Staff was very helpful and polite. Clean campground!

Very quiet and relaxing. Smaller campgrounds which was great for us. Kind of hilly for kids on bikes. People that work there very friendly.

So fun and beautiful we enjoyed our selves so much! The staff was awesome! Canât wait to go back

Nice campground, rural, but very clean, and the sites are not on top of each other. The folks in the office, as well as the maintenance crew are always friendly and make you feel welcomed. We camp year round, and this is one spot we visit several times a year.

It was primarily an opportunity for our kids/grandkids to play on the bounce pillow. The camp hosts were helpful and accommodating. We rented five trailer sites. It was a great place to hold a birthday party for our 5 year old.

It was a nice quiet fun get away. Staff was awesome friendly and helpful.
Oct 11, 2017
Staff was friendly, campground was clean and easy to get in to. I will say. Power issues at the site. Power was going in and out. They were working to try and fix it. There was a constant smell of sewage which was not coming from the trailers. Bugs were a nuisance in the day. Too close to other RVs for comfort. Pool was green, however that may be because it was October. Not a lot for kid to do

Beautiful park like setting. Wonderful staff. Could not have been kinder and more accommodating. Will be back

I highly recommend this beautiful park. I stayed in October, so the weather was cool, and the park not crowded. The Pull Thru spot at the top is excellent, if it fits your budget. The staff wonderful, they were friendly and wanted to assist me any way they could. The park is a ways from the freeway, which makes it nice and quiet, but I'd recommend arriving in daylight. Summer might be HOT.

It was very nice, bob & melvina wiley

Really like the layout of the campground and bounce pillow is a lot of fun. Bathrooms were clean and management was very responsive. We'll be back for sure!

We had such fond memories of this place since our stay here last summer. You have the nicest, kindest, most considerate people there! Hope to come 'round again next year!

We love KOA...we were supposed to camp on Santa Margarita Lake (State Park) however the wife and I decided to move to KOA because we did not feel safe at the State Park. The person at the KPOA front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. Thank you so much we will definitely see you all again.

Wonderful stay!! Peaceful place, Very clean and quiet. Staff was SO nice. 4 spots next to the jumping pillows for us and our friends, but not loud at all,kids loved it! It is down a hill so be prepared and watch the little ones. campsites are on different levels since this lovely place is nesteled on the hillside. Great use of space. All dirt so be polite and drive slow! Weâre local,Weâll b ba

Great campsite for a family with kids. A must walk to the lake!
Sep 22, 2017
The staff service was superb. Nice country setting with plenty of trees. The lake nearby is picturesque and easy to walk to. KOA staff amiable, helpful, accommodating. The restrooms, however, leave much to be desired. No paper towels. No toilet seat covers. No liquid soap. Biggest drawback is the constant uphill/downhill climb everywhere. Definitely not for seniors.

The sceneries around the campground was pretty nice but very dusty. I felt like there was not enough space between our motorhome and the neighbor's motorhome. The biggest disappointment for us is the placement of the sewer hookup. Right next to the dining table/bench is the neighbor's sewer hookup. We did not particularly enjoyed the odor coming from it as we were trying to enjoy our meals.

My wife and I love the staff. They are always a pleasure to see and talk to.

Sep 12, 2017
great area, close to wine tasting and kayaking - can you ask for more? friendly staff and nice pool
Sep 12, 2017
Well maintained, clean, and very enjoyable. Michelle was real pleasant and accommodated our last minute desire for a change in site. early morning commercial trash pick-up was not the greatest, but otherwise an excellent camp!...thx a lot

The staff were very friendly and cordial. The location too far away from SLO for the purpose that we needed. Very rustic and tucked away. Perfect for someone that would want to get away from busy suburbia.
