Despite having been moved from a full hook site due to Thomas Fire, staff was very nice to accommodate us at another site. Staff is doing great to try to work around the burned areas of the campground. Hope it is all back to normal soon. We will definitely stay again.

Considering the circumstances, our stay was enjoyable. They staff tries hard to make you feel at home. Our location was really pretty and we had a good time.

This place was damaged in a fire and they are still working on it. They should make campers aware of that before they book. The stay was ok but missing amenities are turning some people off.

Wonderful, secluded spot, but be aware, since the wildfire 3 months ago, the sewer situation is somewhat icky.

I know they are rebuilding but without a dog run and peacocks all over the place it was hard to walk the dogs. I wish them luck rebuilding, but will not be back because of the peacocks.

This was our first time staying at a KOA and we really enjoyed it. The staff was very nice and greeted us as soon as we arrived. I only wished that the amenities were up and running (trampoline, rock wall, night walks, etc.).

We had a great time. I’m really sorry for everyone that has been effected from the fire that came through the canyon. I sure hope Fema speeds up their process so the campground can get back to where it once was.

We had a great time, but I think we were in the two muddiest spots in the camp. Even with the rain and mud, we really enjoyed our stay. We’ll be back for sure!

Quiet and relaxing. The camp host, Kathy, was very pleasant and helpful.

The stay was good. No showers, no tv, a lot of amenities were gone, pool full of what looked like scum. For $70+ a night was a bit much.i understand their hardships, but I do believe the price is to much with all the amenities off limits. Hard to recommend top dollar sites with bottom dollar offerings.

It was an amazing place. So sorry for the fire you had there. I can see why big kids and small kids would love to stay there. The staff was very helpful. Can’t wait for you guys to rebuild. A very lovely place.....

We stayed here in a motorhome. Even though they had a lot of damage from the Thomas fire, they were very accommodating in making sure our stay was satisfactory.
Mar 10, 2018
The location is awful. People speed by and make it unsafe for children. No regulation or management. Never want to stay here again.

The fire really divastated a large part of the park, very limited amminities should be charging discounted rates. Dump station has no water, no club house, no sewer hookups. But all of the staff we delt with were very helpful, friendly and upbeat.

It was my first time camping, and staff were very helpful! Very nice location; such a tragedy about the recent fire. Would definitely return.

Nice campground overall. Very close to Ventura and the ocean!! Rt 126 was fast and not too heavily traveled during weekday. Still recovering from fire. Water faucet valve leaked at our site. No water available at dump station. Minor inconveniences.

very peaceful
Mar 05, 2018
Very pleasant workers is all I can say No one told us this was a non smoking campground Will not be back

Nice park but unfortunately we went in February 2018, a couple months after the wild fires in this area. This parc was severely affected and we were not able to enjoy all the things the park has to offer. It should reopen officially in April 2018. I would stay here again.
Feb 27, 2018
Although the campground has experienced fire damage, we are looking forward to seeing the new rebuild and the new changes. We have been camping here for many years and love coming here. Wonderful people and clean environment!!! I love the positive attitudes even after the fire! May God bless all of the staff!!

Nice, quiet campground. Many of the surrounding facilities were damaged in the fire, but the Birch and Alder campgrounds are still in great shape. Showers and public areas were not available.

It was awesome. We had a blast in the tranquillity of nature. Thank you for the opportunity, and hope KOA rebuilds and is better than ever!

Even considering the current camp conditions due to the recent fires, it is still a wonderful place to be. Hopefully it will be back to normal soon.

Very Spartan. Not operators fault, they are doing best with what they have. the website indicated wifi and cable tv, water and elec hookup. Kathy said the wifi was"spotty" but phone service good. There was no wifi and could not get phone service. Showers shut down, not informed and caused problem, had to be somewhere next day. Water smelled bad and not potable. Pricey for what was offered.

Great Park manager! Very very helpful.

Had a great stay even with the wildfire damage and Judy did a great job of setting us up with an excellent site!

I loved this camp to be honest with you but I was at the Ventura KOA on my honeymoon when the Santa Paula fire happened and was forced to evacuate, and when I emailed about my stuff I got ZERO response and I’ve been waiting since the 3rd of December and I still am very upset I paid for two nights and was forced to evacuate the 2nd at 630pm and still got charged for it so I rate my expirence a 3


I am sure I reimbursed you. I apologize if not. Please call me and I will credit your credit card immediately.

stay was short due to the tommas fire. this was a great place before the fire. I hope the rebuilding goes well as I would love to return to this camp. My best to those you are rebuilding.

Beautiful park! Loved our stay until we were evacuated leaving our RV behind. Had minutes to escape. Was luck to get back in 3 days later to get the RV. Very happy it survived. I hope the park gets rebuilt! I would love to return.

our stay was great we had about 35 people there with us. we had 4-camp spots and 4-cabins ant 3-tents rented. we are so sorry that after we checked out on the 4th. that day the Thomas fire started. we sure hope they will re build. we stay there at least 3 times a year.
Dec 31, 2017
as before the campsite are a good size the office is helpful and prompt and the grounds are clean, we had a very pleasant time
Dec 31, 2017
What we saw looked amazing. We were only there for a few hours though as we were evacuated due to the Thomas Fire. Our 5th wheel sat in the campground for 6 days totally unattended. We found out our 5th wheel was saved from the devastation as were many others. But the rest of the campground was destroyed. We felt safe in knowing it was there however as we kept up with the owner, Scott. Kudos.

On December 4 we fled the Ventura Ranch KOA campground due to the Thomas fire . We had planned to stay until December 22. We have emailed the Ventura ranch campground twice and also reached out to Judy and Doug Cook for a refund. We have yet to have anyone respond to our correspondence ,we would appreciate a response regarding our refund. Thank you, Joan Conlin and Mark Stanton 818-517-9157

We loved the park. The staff was wonderful and the park was beautiful. We left just before the Thomas fire and continue to pray for the park and staff during this difficult time. We would highly recommend this park.

Dec 04, 2017
Not many campers on Saturday. Quiet. Most importantly was the desk clerk who was most helpful. The grounds crew were very nice. That all counts in my book.

I truely enjoy the atmosphere. The only compliant I have is in regards to the reservations.

We enjoyed our time and have already recommended it to a few friends. We would stay again on a weekend so our kids can enjoy the zip line and rock wall next time. Looking forward to enjoying the pool in summertime!
