This seems like a nice park, lots of green grass and trees spaced about the property. It does appear as if the surrounding area has grown around it, so the drive in through the neighborhood is kind of odd, but we never felt unsafe. There's a little store on site with basics and limited grocery items, and everyone we dealt with was very friendly and helpful. They put us in a pull-through on the end of a row, which was nice. No one near us, and we did stick out a little on each end but that was ok since the park was so empty on New Year's Day. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here in early November and based our visits to Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks from this KOA. Fairly typical KOA, although this one did have quite a few long-term or "permanent" residents. Adequate gravel interior roads, adequate gravel pull-thru parking space. We've stayed in better and stayed in worse, which is why we rated it average. FYI, California RV parks all have higher than average nightly rates.

There maybe RV parks closer to the national parks, but for our size rig this was a better choice. Be aware that this is in the central valley and with all the agricultural operations going on you will have hazy skies and sometimes an odor unique to this big ag/dairy producing region. Bear in mind Fresno, just 30 miles or so north, is one of most air polluted cities in USA. It was obvious to us as we couldn't see the towering Sierra mountain range just 40 miles east of town. Downtown Visalia is charming. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Stayed over 1 night on our travels south in CA in our 40' motorhome. Near Sequoia National park. Lots of gravel and dirt, little grass, kind of dusty. If it rained this park would be a muddy mess. But there are some decent amenities like pool, dog park, propane, pleasant owners and staff, nice reception area, etc. No street noise but the trains are not too far away. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of your stay with us this past fall. Due to our location in a desert climate, we do not have ample amounts of grass at the park. We are glad that you enjoyed some of our amenities as well as our store and friendly staff. We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again sometime.

Messy, older KOA. Lots of permanent residents. When I pulled in to my designated spot my neighbor (who smoked right under our window) complained that I was blocking his satellite dish. Nothing I could do about that, wasn't about to move. No where to go. Spots are tight, barely had room for my 38' rig and tow car. Groundkeeper made me pull forward after my jacks were down to make more room behind us - was not necessary, but I did not make a fuss. One reviewer mentioned the possibility of a mess in the rain. That is now confirmed. Stepped in a mud pit on the way to disconnect. To top it all off you have to drive through an unsavory neighborhood to get to the park. Perhaps it is better in the sunshine, with a smaller rig, after a shorter drive. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

I thought this place was very over-priced for what one got. I only came here to use my points ($25 off the member rate). No shade, gravel strip with a bit of dried grass in between the sites. Poor cable. They just started giving free, unlimited WiFi. Place was practically empty and they still stuck us out in the sun. Ugh. Glad it was only one night.

Definitely long term residents but they didn't bother us. Decent layout and easy to get in and out of your site. Our son enjoyed the pool. The laundry card policy ($10 deposit for laundry card) wasn't that much of a hassle. Wifi is only free for one hour per day. About an hour drive to Sequoia National Park.

As KOAs go, this is not one of the stellar ones. One hour free Wifi per day is a misnomer. Once you log in you get one hour even if you are only on-line for 5 minutes it counts as an hour. Thankfully we had our own Verizon hotspot which provided 4g lte service. The effects of the drought and age are showing as there is a lot of brown (which is the new green in California) and the area is deteriorating due to this. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The pool, restrooms and laundry are very well maintained. We would stay here again. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Unfortunately this is a poor excuse for a KOA. Showing age and lack of care. Add to that the fact that is it very expensive for what is provided and we cannot recommend it. I was surprised to be able to get reservations for 4th of July weekend on short notice, but after seeing the place, I understand the lack of patrons. Our site was a level gravel pull-through with a small shade tree and the water, power, and sewer worked. Cable did not work at any time in the 4 days we were there. Over-the-air TV was OK. "Free" Wi-Fi was a joke.

We will not be staying here again. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed at this park twice before, the last time 4 years ago. Both times it was very nice and green; some grass, some mowed weeds. Big change! Mostly mowed weeds, lots of dead patches; millions of foxtails which are a big issue for those of us who travel with dogs. The worst foxtails were in the enclosed dog yard! Yes CA has a drought; we live in CA and have the same issues at home. This seems to be a case of just letting the place run down.

On the plus sice, the staff was very friendly, park very clean, quite a few full time residents but rigs/spaces were clean and tidy.

We share others' feelings about the "one hour free wifi", should be free/unlimited like all other RV parks.

For this park I would have expected to pay about $35, not $53. And that was after the KOA club card discount. We would not stay here again. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

There is hardly any gravel, just dirt with a lot of grass growing on the sites where you park. It smells strongly of manure. It was dark when we came in, but we assume it is near or next to a feed lot. It is cold tonight; can't imagine this place during the hot summer! WiFi is "free" for an hour, then you pay! This is the first time we have Ever run into this at a KOA. We would never come back here. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

This is an older park in a very industrial part of town near a railroad track. It is conveniently located near Sequoia National Park. Most campsites are pull-thrus with a picnic table. There are some large trees in the park which are good for shade but not good for big rigs or satellite reception. Grass was brown because of drought. The park would be pretty if it was greener. The WiFi setup was strange - you get one free hour of WiFi per device per day. The one hour is continuous - you cannot check your email and then come back after dinner and check it again. Then you have to wait 24 hours it use it again. We used our verizon hotspot which worked fine. The office was the old KOA A-Frame and was dated but they were adding new cabins and seemed to be interested in the future. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Dirt, gravel, uneven sites. Good access to sites. Wi-Fi is available for one hour per day unless you pay for more. This park can be entered from northbound CA-99 using the Goshen Ave exit, but there is no access back onto CA-99 at this location. Head south on Plaza, merge right onto 198 East and immediate merge onto CA-99 north or south. The gas station on the SE corner of Goshen and Plaza is huge, easily accessible and has diesel and a car wash. This camp caters to tent campers. The "premium" 50 amp sites are 50 ft away from the tent camping area. 4 of the 5 nights we were there, there were 20 to 30 tents and approximately 100 loud people staying there. KOA staff were rude and did nothing to stop the tent campers partying past midnight. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Our rig is 42 feet, and it just fit in the site (we had to unhook and park our tow vehicle elsewhere. Sites were clean and wide, mostly level, and there is easy access from the highway. Those families with children should be aware that they consider any child 12 and over as an adult, and we were charged an extra $5.40 cents for our 12-year-old per night. Also be aware that you must use special cards for the laundry. We arrived around 7:30 and went to wash clothes at 8 pm, only to discover that we had to have this special card (which you can get with a $10 deposit) to use the machines. Since the card can only be purchased from the campground store/office, you are out of luck if you don't figure that out before they close for the night at 8 pm. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The positives: level gravel sites, good hookups, 1 hour WiFi free per day, picnic table at each site, nice staff, and convenient to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks (45 minutes to Sequoia gate and 60 minutes to Kings Canyon gate). The negatives: for the "KOA discount" price of $48 per night, the WiFi should be free and the pads should be paved. The unpaved pads lead to dusty conditions. As with most KOAs, this one was overpriced for the amenities. We would stay here for a few days, again, if we wanted to visit the local national parks, however.

Quiet park with level pull thru sites, utilities were good- the exception being the wifi. An hour per device and once logged on, the hour starts and that is it. They are working hard to keep the grass green during this long drought period. Trees offered shade, but you need to pay attention to where your dish needs to point for sat service. The park was very quiet at night. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks were wonderful-the drought has made the rivers and falls disappear, but don't miss! Dinner at Rosa's in Visalia was very good! Some of the best italian we have had in a while.
