Great staff and clean facilities. Sites are a good size.

People are great and campground rustic but not up to KOA standards. Had to drive 15 miles to do laundry. Campground not suited for bigger rigs.

Great campground - accommodating a late check in. Would recommend getting here in daylight as remote.

Beautiful campsite, quiet and with very large places.

Great Camp ground, very pleasant staff. Constantly monitoring Campsites for clean up after campers leave. Hilly but great views.

Fun from the minute we drove in. Our 4 boys had smiles the entire week. Between the jump pillow, pool and exploring the camp ground they were on the go from sun up until quiet time! The staff never had anything less than an ear to ear smile. If you had any questions the staff had answers! RV sites were much larger than other camp grounds we have been to. Can't wait to go back!

Very family friendly and the host was more than accommodating. We will stay there again.

Santa Margarita KOA staff is so friendly and helpful, it feels like they treat everyone like family (or better, depending on your family). This was our second trip and we will definitely be back again, the bounce pad and pool are so fun for the kids and the friendliness of the staff makes it easy to just enjoy your trip.

I wasn't sure about this camping spot, having never been there. I was pleasantly surprised, and plan on going back at some point for a longer stay.Very well kept, little camp sites, and cool looking little rental cabins.I loved having the hookups for my trailer(power and water).There is also plenty of space to easily back your trailer or RV in any of the designated sites.Lots of fun for kids too.

I liked the campground. However we were looking for something a little cooler so we left a little early. Everything about the campground was great. Just not the right location for us at the time. Management was very understanding and accommodating to us.

le camping est très bien sauf si : on enlève la propreté des sanitaires ( une grenouille habite dans les lavabos et un nids de fourmis rouges dans une douche ... )

Noisy neighbor drinking until late night.

Hot and dusty!! The pool did not appear clean and was over crowded as it is very small.... Not much for kiddos to do

Awesome stay

Hot, dry and dusty with very few activities for kids. The pool was dirty and there was no playground. The roads to and from the trailer sites are very steep and rocky. 4WD truck highly recommended to get your rig in and out of the site.

It was a very quick trip and only one night's stay. However my husband would like to go back so we can try it for a bit longer. Thank you!

Friendly and helpful staff. Also quiet. Some vehicles were driving to fast causing excessive dust in camp site.
Jul 27, 2017
Great stay! Great employees, so much help! Definitely will stay again!

The camp grounds were very clean and quiet, a little dusty, but overall a great spot. The star gazing event was spectacular. Looking forward to coming back.

Arrived after 10 pm. Found reservation and map that led to rv site. Couldn't find my way to the restroom on the opposite side of a ravine. Staff happened by and showed me the way. All sites were filled. Obviously a popular place. We left early in the morning as we are photographers visiting the area.

Need dust control.

There was some problem with electricity. However, our trailer was not one of the trailers affected. We enjoyed the campground overall. Rose Sloan

This campground is very good for families or just couples. It has a very interesting layout since it was placed on the foots of the mountains. It has great hiking up and downhill. It also has a great swimming pool to cool down. It is also .3 miles from the entrance to the lake. This was a great getaway definitely recommend to anyone specially people that are just starting to go RVing.

Great KOA, but our site was a tad bit smelly, because all of the affluent from uphill seemed to converge near our dump position.
Jul 04, 2017
Staff was fantastic. Plenty of activities, beautiful scenery on the drive in, close to the beach and San Luis Obispo. Our only complaint were the restrooms. We have a pop up and the Koa was at or near capacity (80 campsites)and although we were told 8 for women the guys only had 4 toilets for all trailer sites & 1 was out night 1. If $15 per night no worries but, @ $60 PN, rent some port-o-pottie
