Stayed 5 nights over New Years. Site was level and clean. Sites in the bottom loops are pretty close together and you can smell the neighbour's sewer at times. We had to ask our neighbour to close it while we ate outside. (Luckily he was cool about it). Besides the sewer situation, I would have thought they would have stronger towers for Wi Fi being it is such a new RV Park. WiFi was free but practically useless when park is full. Pool and Jacuzzi were clean. Bathrooms clean, updated and well maintained. Check- in was friendly and provided lots of information, maps etc. Being 12 miles from Santa Barbara didn't bother us as it seems to affect other campers' ratings of this park. We were just as glad to be that much closer to Solvang. It's all relative. We will absolutely be back.

LOVED LOVED LOVED this campground. To have full hook ups in this type of rustic, national park campground is such a treat. No Wi-Fi, cable or cell at the camp spots. The general store was stocked with everything you'd need. Laundry was plenty and there is Wi-Fi/ cell service in the laundry area. Due to bears, don't leave anything out or you will get a visit from an upset ranger and maybe even a ticket (used BBQs and citronella candles included). No bear boxes. Can't wait to go back.

Delightful RV park with lots of shady pull through spots. Stayed 2 nights. Was much nicer than I was expecting being next to amusement park. Once the park closed at 10, the RV park was peaceful.

Stayed for 4 nights in the 'F' area; back in, full hook ups. No real road noise. Wi-Fi was actually decent. Bathrooms clean and all washers/ dryers in full working order. Loved the lower spots near stream, but they are water and electric only. Friendly staff, clean pool. Will return.

Perfectly happy with this park and the location to the GC. We had a nice shady end spot but some spots were all dirt, no shade, on top of your neighbour. Numerous large elk walk through the CG like they own the place! Love it! Friendly, although slow check in. We cancelled our last night with no penalty. Cable TV was a bonus during the Olympics.

Date of Stay:

Spots were long, paved and level. Firepit, picnic table and BBQ. Bring your own shade. My only greivance was the lack of laundry facilities. There were 2 dryers for the entire campground, 252 spots!! 4 dryers and 1 Wash were out of order. ( don't tell me they all broke down that day) People were still queuing for machines at 11pm. Major inconvenience so I marked them down. They should be fixed by the time you visit I hope. No wi fi at our spot nor at the over crowded hotel pool.

Great campground, we chose trees over cable TV and were quite happy with our end shady spot. Laundry was tight, but the machines were plenty. Perfect location for visiting Bryce. We'll be back. Wouldn't recommend the Rubys Best Western restaruant in town though, food was not great, service was so so and it was pricey.

Loved it! Well worth the beautiful drive from the valley to Mt. Carmel. Can't wait to go back. So many kids activities, they never wanted to leave! Pool and Jacuzzi were perfect after long day hiking. Even in the rain! We had a great spot on the end, RV 4 with a beautiful view. Quiet and private. Would like to see a bit better signage to RV area and the dirt roads are a bit rustic and muddy during the monsoon season. No Wi-Fi at our spot but strong signal at the Clubhouse. One other thing worth noting: There is a restaruant, which I heard was very good but we never tried, but no general store to purchase food such as bread, milk etc. Bring your own unless you wish to eat out.

I would call it kid friendly but surely not pet friendly. Kids had a blast in the pool; the store was well stocked and the restaruant food was fine; although it took a good 30 mins for a few burgers. As others mentioned paying for Wi-Fi at this rate is a drag, but the worst part was the lack of spots for dogs to do their business. The asphalt was way too hot so we had to DRIVE to the pet run on the other side of the park. C'mon!!

Regardless of the activities, keep in mind two thins. 1. The sites are terribly small. 2. The sewer hook ups are so damn difficult to use. If you're in anything besides a big rig, dumping is a drag. We have stayed here three times, most recently this Labor Day weekend and we asked ourselves, why?? Crowded, cramped and loud. Store is well stocked but pricey. $12 to rent a mandatory life vest to swim out to the float is a rip off. We have stayed over less crowded weekends but just don't think it's worth the price. Won't be back unless they fix the sewers and renovate the spots to offer more space.

We lucked out and got the most awesome river site! Really enjoyed our stay, the owners were friendly and store was well stocked. Only negative is they don't have a dump station, one has to drive to San Simeon if you're heading south.

I like KOAs and we use them often. After 6 nights dry camping, having full hook-ups is such a treat! Our trailer is small so we had no difficulty navigating the narrow road to the office. I asked for a spot near the pool when I reserved and that is what I got. My whole family used the pool and we did not find it to be too cold. Yes, the WiFi was spotty and I did notice a bit of attitude from the lady in the office directed to a German fellow who was asking about pool hours and such. Also, there was no water pressure in their showers, which needed a cleaning. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would go back if we needed a stop over.

We enjoyed this campground. They have an awesome general store and lots of kids activities. You are allowed to bring your leashed dog on the beach which is a plus. Because we were originally put in a tiny spot next to the loud Hwy, we probably won't go back. We got very lucky to get moved to a spot near the water but that was an anomaly. Apparently lots of people don't mind though. The staff was very kind in helping us move to a more desirable spot, but it just seemed like such a hassle.

We love this campground! The spots are big and shady and the staff is great. They rent tubes to flow down the river for only $ 1/ hr. They have a playground and basketball court for the kids. We will certainly stay here again next time we're in Big Sur.

This was our first time at a KOA. The campground was clean, well maintained, plenty of friendly staff and lots of kids activities as well as a huge field to let the dogs run. Sacramento just happens to be hot hot hot in August, thank Dog for the clean pool. The only thing I would recommend is maybe a sign at check in advising to use mozzy repellent at dusk. We got eaten alive and I met another family that had the same problem .
