I would never stay here again even though it is so close to the S Cali area. I realize there is not to many campgrounds to pick from but we have had better in the area many times.

For the price $55, the spots are very narrow to the point that room extensions will be pretty close to the camper next door. Forget the use of the awning or table, bbq etc.

Seems like it was mostly the local crowd from the LA area. The pool sounded and looked like the big attraction.

Prior to leaving I warned the office of a car parked in the roadway many days before we were to leave. This car parked in the roadway would make our exit impossible without backing out of our pull thru site. The office staff was useless when I voiced concern well in advance of our departure date.

Sure enough 8 am I needed to pull out and the car was parked in the roadway yet again another night.

Had to disconnect the towed and back out because of lack of management control of the campground.

Never again when such good camping is a stone throw away if you plan ahead. We camped at Los Angeles / Pomona / Fairplex KOA in a Motorhome.

They do not pre-assign site numbers. Sites are pull-thru but very close to the neighboring spot. They do have double hook-ups in each space so you pull in from either direction. We were on end spot and had a nice patch of grass, but sprinklers came on full blast at 7 a.m. for 45 minutes (in a drought). Soaked everything we had sitting outside and couldn't get out of our RV without getting soaked. Complained to 4 people working in park and all of them claimed it was not their responsibility and that I'd have to tell their boss. Wood fires are not allowed but propane can be used. We camped at Los Angeles / Pomona / Fairplex KOA in a Motorhome.

Wi-Fi is useless. Next door to fairground parking lot so it could be noisy if there is an event going on. There are 2 small cabins, and a small tent area that is pretty far away from restrooms and showers

Sites are really small. You and your neighbor can't both put out your awnings if that's the way you are parked. Didn't use any of the extras as we were there for the RVIA Show at the Fairplex. People in office were nice. We camped at Los Angeles / Pomona / Fairplex KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in a 42' motor home with a tow - we unhooked our Jeep prior to driving to our site. The spaces were pretty cool as you could drive in either side of your street and there were hookups on both sides of the RV. All sites are pull-through and there was a parking space for our Jeep. The staff was busy but very friendly and attentive. The manager was also there helping someone with directions. Our dog loved the beautiful long pet walk. The park was being maintained daily and trees were trimmed--lots of large trees for shade. This is an older park, close to lots of great restaurants and you can just walk over to the Fairplex events. Had a great stay! We camped at Los Angeles / Pomona / Fairplex KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for an RV reunion. The park has a nice setting with lots of trees. That is a plus, but also a problem. The park is very tight for maneuvering. Many sites are way too narrow. The first site they sent us to was so tight that we could not put out our slides without hitting something. There are a lot of long term residents, but they mostly keep up their areas and are very friendly. I would only stay here if going to an event at the Pomona Fairplex. We camped at Los Angeles / Pomona / Fairplex KOA in a Motorhome.

We stay here for the NHRA races every year, it is an ok place with half of the spots apparently long term residents. If you have a roof mounted dish site placement is important as trees are in the way. If you want satellite signal either ask or have a portable unit. Morning traffic noise is there too. Hot tub was nice and bathrooms were redone. Staff was polite too. We camped at Los Angeles / Pomona / Fairplex KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for the Grand National Roadster Show. The Fairplex is adjacent to the park, so this was a huge plus for us. The grounds are beautiful. We had an end spot with lots of grass. Multiple dog run areas (not entirely fenced, just nice bark-strewn walkways lining the park). Staff presence was obvious throughout the park...everything was sparkling clean. The front office has great tips on where to go and what to do should you need to venture into town. Claremont is a short drive (or bike ride) away with lots of great shopping and restaurants. Target is about 2 miles away and an easy walk. We camped at Los Angeles / Pomona / Fairplex KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed over the holiday's. Very full during our stay with a lot of full time residents. Staff super friendly and accommodating. Very quite and clean. WiFi pretty terrible, but cell reception (Verizon) was great. Store was well stocked and convenient. Sites a little close together, but manageable. We camped at Los Angeles / Pomona / Fairplex KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This KOA has a big negative in that it is near the FairPlex (State Fair Park). They allow any kind of event there. I am here during the "Day of the Dead" celebration. The music volume is way beyond anything I have ever experienced. It is generally a pretty noisy environments because of all the events, but you can usually close up your RV and get away from it for the most part. During the "Days of the Dead", the music is so loud that it rattles your home and your brain even when you close everything. I am staying at the KOA for three months. I called the police department about the noise last night and they told me that they were having trouble finding the Promoter of the event to ask him for a phone number for people calling in to complain to instead of call them. I went over to the event and within 5 minutes I was talking to a person that said, I work for the promoter and that talking to him was the same as talking to the promoter. He said that they were not going to turn it down at all and that the volume level was being monitored and was within the maximum limits allowed by law. The police department was getting a lot of calls, but they couldn't do anything about it. So, if you don't think you can stand music so loud that your brain will be vibrating, don't come to within 2 or three miles of the FairPlex. I will never stay in the area again. We camped at Los Angeles / Pomona / Fairplex KOA in a Motorhome.

The Fairplex KOA is a very clean, level campground, there is a small but pleasant pool/hot tub area and it has easy access to multiple Los Angeles activities. Other than those positives, here is the list of negatives: the sites are extremely close, there isn't anywhere to sit but right next to your neighbor's sewer line, the office staff are only willing to address customers as soon as their task is finished, if you have a big rig - there is barely room for your tow car. The pool area also has a locking gate both inside and out, so to get out you must have a key (very odd). We found it very expensive for a family of five.

I think that the designation as a “big rig” campground for this park is highly questionable. My low rating is for our rig which is just over 40 feet in length. I would recommend against taking any rig longer than 36’ into the park due to the tight roads and tight and short pull thrus. It is an aging park although they seem to be working hard on upkeep. Apparently they have remodeled the shower facilities. WiFi is erratic. We camped at Los Angeles / Pomona / Fairplex KOA in a Motorhome.

Not fond of KOA's any longer as they are over priced and sites are extremely close together. This one was no different. Roads are so narrow, and sites are so close together, that larger rigs have to ask people to move their tow vehicles to pull out of their pull-through sites! When we arrived, we were assigned a site, but when we found our site, it was occupied. Office staff stated they had forgotten and made a mistake, so we were assigned another site. Unable to put out our awning due to tall sewer vent pipe located within 4 feet of our rig! If rig next to us had not been a small class C, we would not even have been able to put out our slides! We watched many rigs nearly take off our driver's side mirror as they attempted to round the corner of our site to leave the park. There is no playground for children, and this is definitely NOT a family oriented park! Other than the small swimming pool, there is absolutely nothing for children to do here. Dog walks are very narrow and small, but sufficed. Road noise is very loud, but since there is no where to sit outside anyway, we kept our windows closed. There is a picnic table, but it is situated within 2 feet of your neighbors sewer line so very unhealthful and unattractive! Would Never recommend this park to anyone. We will never return! Owners should be ashamed of charging more than $20.00 for this run down, rat infested park. Saw several when walking our dog, including one hit by a car and left on pavement. We camped at Los Angeles / Pomona / Fairplex KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed at the KOA Fairplex while attending two different Pomona events -- the Pomona Horse Expo and the NHRA winter racing series. Proximity to the events was fabulous and an easy walk, but park staff had very little knowledge about just where to go to access the right Fairplex gates. The sites are easy to access pull-thru sites but very narrow, with the utilities located in the middle of the site. This meant we stepped out our door right next to the neighbor's sewer. For our purpose though, it worked just fine because we were away during the days and not spending much time outdoors. The park has a lot of nice trees and flowers and is pet friendly, with a short but nice walkway down one side for the dogs. Everything is clean and well-kept. The price reflects the event pricing for the NHRA weekend. It was expensive, but nice to be withing walking distance of our events. We camped at Los Angeles / Pomona / Fairplex KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Restrooms and showers have been under construction for a long time, very long time. Could have built new ones faster, Sites are very small. Had to wait until next door left so I could pull out. Requested a clear sit so my sat. would work, they assured me that it was a good spot for sat. Front office was not to friendly. We camped at Los Angeles / Pomona / Fairplex KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here only because it was the closest place we could find the to Lazy Daze plant that we traveled down here to see. First of all, the spaces are very close. Each space is separated from the next by a strip of dying grass that is only as wide as a picnic table (width-wise, not length-wise). If both our neighbors and ourselves had had pop-outs they would have been touching. Next, the men's bathroom (yes, bathroom, not bathroomS for almost 200 sites) was being refurbished. So, on check in we were asked to please use the bathroom and shower in our rig to free up the showers for the long term residents. I was appalled at this, but there wasn't much I could do, especially since I'd already prepaid for the night. Once I looked into the bathroom, though, I wouldn't have used theirs anyway. It was dark, and dirty, and tiny. Yuck. The pool, which we didn't use, did appear to be clean and well kept. It is dog friendly, with a long area to walk the dogs. There are garbage cans for waste bags, but no bags were supplied. The office staff was helpful and friendly. We stayed here only one night, and we were there for a specific purpose. Given a choice, I would not stay here again. We camped at Los Angeles / Pomona / Fairplex KOA in a Motorhome.
