We have enjoyed camping at Vail Lake for a number of years now. It's always a nice place to stay. The campground is very clean and the staff is very kind. Look forward to staying again.

We had a great time at Vail Lake KOA, what a lovely location. Were impressed with the selections in the store & enjoyed the history displayed in the Bunkhouse Bar. We arrived after dark, a bit more lighting/signage would have helped. We realize KOA has not owned this property for very long and expect to see great improvements in the future. This property has amazing potential. We'll be back!

Loved everything about the campground except for NO CELL SERVICE in Arroyo Seco. Had a medical emergency and wasn't able to call for help from campsite.

Some staff very friendly while others not so much. As they drive by in their carts, would be nice to get a friendly smile or wave or simple hello. Some seemed to not be aware or not want to engage in any way with campers.

We always love our experience at Vail Lake. Marissa, Tim, and Ian always stand out to us as very helpful and friendly to work with!!! Hoping you guys plan to add electric hookups to Arroyo Seco soon!! And maybe better wifi! We rent our camping trailers VERY often to vail lake and these are comments from our renters! Thanks for the great time.

Lots of fun things for families to do with their children and grandchildren. We stayed in the Oaks campground and will definitely be returning again.

This was our kids and grandkids first time and they all loved it. Very family oriented. We’ve been several times.

Another great time had with family and friends. Arroyo Secco sites were good, not the best sites we have stayed in, too dusty,. Gravel sites would be good.

Love this campground. So clean. Great biking and other activities. The rangers were not overly invasive, which made it nice to relax and enjoy friends and family. Loved the drink cart...didn’t need drinks but great addition to the park.

Is a great park so many activities for adults and kids to spend family time was so awesome. But the only reason I give a 4 was because golf cars have NONE regulations In the campground inside just by my side in Arroyo my Kid almost got Run over. Kids driving golf card and unresponsive adults like if they are racing. I sure hope this change before accident happenSome stuff super niece others rude.

We really like staying at Vail Lake KOA. We always have a good time! My only complaint would be that the roads are in really bad shape and people do not pick up after their dogs in the dog area.

Was better then I ever could have expected!!! So many activities for the kids! Beautiful clean site. Every staff member was pleasant and very helpful. Will be going back for years to come! Amazing experience!!!

We had a great time. The grounds were decorated really nice. We were happy that there is some spots in arroyo with power now.

It was wonderful. So much to do or just hang and relax. Loved it!

Everything was great except one thing. The folks staying across from us had a bad water leak where the hose connects to their RV. Many KOA staff went by, noticed it, and did nothing to correct or advice the campers. This continued for 3 days.

We really enjoyed our stay. Clean campsites. Clean restrooms friendly employees.

Very pleasant as always, stayed in a different area than were use to, a little windy up on the Chardonnay. Decorations were nice for Christmas Holiday, wasn’t to pleased how too many people without masks in the main office town area.

We Love Vail Lake Koa. It is our families go to camping spot. The campground is beautiful, there are so many fun things to do, and the spots are great. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

Site was dirty upon check in. Had trash and left over raw chicken on the ground. Not only gross but dangerous to our dogs. Also, in the no electrical hook up area there was no enforcement of the 10-7 quiet time and generators ran 24/7.
Nov 30, 2020
Stay was great but a little disorganized with booking for the following year and the horse ride. Communication with booking wasn’t communicated to all employees. Horse ride was great but time slots would have been better.

We love Vail Lake. I have been coming here since I was in diapers (50 years ago) and have always enjoyed it. Love that they are bringing back all the activities look forward to coming back when COVID isn’t an issue.

We had another great time visiting again. The roads need some attention too many pot holes and cracks made bike riding dangerous. We wish you had a Bocce ball court and another pickleball ct We were disappointed that the large propane tanks were empty, we needed to fill up & couldn’t. We love the activities, spacious sites, fun groups of visitors, the movie Tiki bar golf cart is a great addition

We had so much fun! Thank you for a wonderful weekend filled with Christmas fun. Staff was all so nice. The only thing I would change is I wish we had phone service but we survived. Lol
Nov 30, 2020
Had fun - nice campground - Spaces are good size and spaced out nicely - DEFINETELY need to fix the road in and out though, lots of cracks and road splits on the pavement making it very harsh on trailers pulling in and out but great staff, friendly and worked out good - thanks

I didn’t like having to switch sites so often. I would have preferred to stay in one place.
Nov 30, 2020
Stay was great! Lots of space to walk around and grassy areas to play with the dogs. I just wish you could get to the lake.

We camp at Vail Lake often, but the holidays are always the best, with all the fun activities.
Nov 30, 2020
Nice campground with picklball,minigolf,etc. But very noisy with lots of people riding around drunk and loud in golf carts lite up with Xmas lights.Huge family groups singing and shouting. Great place for family groups though.

First of all, I'm not a camper. I don't like sleeping anywhere that isn't in a bed. But this place is as nice as it gets for camping. They even bring you firewood in the morning if you're staying more than one night. If you get there late at night, you can buy wood at check-in for just $4 per bundle. And each spot has your own personal fire pit and picnic table! It was easy to make a fire and enjoy s'mores. Their staff are helpful, too. I was worried about checking in late and finding our way, but they are open 24/7 and gave us a map with a path to our site. Couldn't get any easier. Their bathrooms have showers (but water is freezing, so I do not recommend), clean toilets, and sinks with paper towels. The only negative is that the bathrooms have no mirrors - so bring your own. It was really as luxurious as it gets for braving the great outdoors. I wouldn't go to any other campground if it's not a KOA, because I've been spoiled. And people were friendly and quiet after hours.
