2 nights here and couldn't be better. Back in site full hook up. A bit hilly but good paths etc. The bouncing pillow was great - kids couldn't get enough. The pool is very well maintained and a lovely place to spend time. Only negative was doors on women's toilets didn't lock. It is easy to get to Hearst castle...

This site is in a remote location. Quiet and peaceful. Restrooms are well maintained. Paths to the tent sites are not well paved. And its sad they have cutdown the trees to create some open spaces.... And this results in pitching the tents under bright sunlight..wish they had left those trees for shade. Lake was like 5 mins drive from...

Just come back from here! We had a lovely time! We stayed in a cabin and it was very nice! Perfect for a comfortable sleep if you don't want to stay in a tent and if you don't have an rv. Bring your own sheets and blankets though! It was clean too. My kids had a blast on the bouncy...

Spent the best time camping in a cabin. With beautiful sunrises and sunsets enjoying the tranquility with peace and quiet. Cabin was well equipped all you had to do was bring bedding and towels and your food.Cabin was beautiful and away from everyone to just enjoy the nature. Even had AC and fans big plus traveling in July.

Quite far from the main higway - we only went there because other RV parks were full. The roads inside the KOA are very rough with many deep holes. It's advertised as 68 acres but the units are put very close together, there is no wifi or phone service only a falling apart walkie-talkie left by the office to call...

We ended up staying in one of the cabins at the KOA in Santa Margarita. It was a last minute decision as it was getting late and we were driving North on our way home. Customer service here was 100%, so helpful and friendly. The cabin was very clean and fairly spartan. Communal bathrooms were very clean. There was some...

Stayed in a new "Deluxe cabin" with our family of five. Mattresses were very comfortable and the cabin was perfect. Queen bed in one bedroom and twin bunks in another. Loft had two twin mattresses but was only about 4 feet high so a bit snug for my 6'5" son! Living room also had a double pull out sofa Beds...

Nice campground..Had an issue with weather when we showed up but the staff was very accommodating. Bathrooms were clean with nice hot showers. Nice lake up the road. We saw deer. It was awesome. We would definitely stay here again.

It was great. The staff was very nice and the jumping pillow and the frisbee golf we very fun. We had a yurt and it was near the bathrooms but with a steep hike down the mountain. I would suggest getting a cabin if u want easy access to bathrooms. But overall a yurt was very comfy and I would...
