Great Los Osos stay, Len and Robb were of great assistance in taking care of an issue we had with our cabin. The Easter activities were will organized and fun for our kids. My daughter went on a horse ride that was very safe and fun.

Was very happy except we rented a covers wagon and had to upgrade because there were so many bugs it was really gross. I felt we should of been upgraded for free we were not expecting all those bugs. That was my only complaint.

We had a lovely weekend. We stayed in the getaway cabin. It was great. The only thing they need to improve is the bed in the room. U could feel every spring. Other than that loved it. This is the second time i stayed here. Am definitely coming back.

Great camping for larger groups like ours. We all could find something to do....tennis, hiking, bike rides, swimming in the pool, horsebackriding, minigolf etc. Friendly staff and ok facilities with a lot of different options for everyone to choose. We were there after this winter with so much rain so it was really fresh and beautiful. I can imagine that...

The employees there (not the ones at check in post, they were great!) are not very friendly. They all look like they...

This was our 15 th annual Spring horse camping with a group of 10 or more, family and friends. Each year wonderful memories are made and we love it here. Rancho Oso is so close ( we live in Santa Maria) yet feels so far away. Our only disappointment was the HUGH price increase for cabins and camping, which kept...

Had a wonderful anniversary trip at Rancho Oso. The only thing I would change was the breakfast experience. We have told many people already of our western experience, and we will definitely be back to stay in the wagons, and bring family and friends with us

This was a quick overnight stay and the location is always peaceful. Oso is a great location when you're traveling in the Santa Barbara area and may want to visit Solvang. Looking forward to my next stay.
