Park shows pride of ownership. If Wi-Fi worked at site, it would have been a 10. The recreation room WiFi is excellent. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy to locate off I15. Being close to interstate didn't bother us at all, in fact didn't hear any noise inside trailer. Wifi was non-existent which was disappointing. We had some nice shade. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We came to visit Calico. We have stayed here several times over the past five years - each time we return, it appears more run down. However, it really is still the best park in the area (although, the county park near Calico looks much improved over the years). The good: location is easy to get to; sites easy to park in; bushes divide the spaces and our aisle had large pine trees with lots of shade; the store is well-stocked with necessities; the staff was friendly and helpful. The bad: no Wi-Fi outside of store/clubhouse using their hotspot (which worked well, but was not convenient); the game room was pretty beat up - needs refreshing (especially billiard table with torn felt); cable TV did not work ( 12 local channels can be picked up by TV antenna - our sat TV was blocked by trees, which would have been OK if we got cable ); 11am (used to be noon) check out time. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Be sure to make a reservation - this park gets pretty crowded, even mid-week ( see above).

Go to Peggy Sue's restaurant, nearby, at least once during your stay.

On the plus side we found the staff accommodating. Even gave us a discount on propane fill because we had to wait 10 minutes. Be sure to get a site with shade trees. Made a huge difference. On the negative side I don't like the oleander bushes with warning signs about berries, leaves and wood being poisonous. Our dog loves bushes so had to watch carefully. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

Calico did not sound like a great idea on a very hot day so decided not to go. Not too much else in area.

Got in very late at night and got probably not the best site in the park. It was right in front of the entrance and no shade at all. The space was large and open. Others we were with had shady spaces. So next time I will try to reserve one of those. Their sites were very nice, shaded and quite large as well. Overall a good place to go in the desert. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

This was our 2nd time here (we didn't make notes in 2012). It's really about the only place in Yermo. Very over-priced, even for a KOA. "Cute" with the train caboose, etc. but, really...lots of food choices (I guess because of the military base and truckers) but the staff and the 'desert' area, it's nothing but an over-night pull in with a high price attached. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

This is actually a good Koa. Unfortunately they are in a dying area. It is no frills... basically desert with no shade in our area. Perhaps avoiding summer heat would be a better idea. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Overpriced, 10 dollars more than other KOAs we've stayed at. Desk clerk not personable at all, bordering on rude. Showers were pay, ridiculous at the camping price. Had our disabled parent with us; how to put her through that gravel to the bathroom? We only did that once, it was just too hard on her, my husband, and the wheelchair. The handicap bathroom all was too small and almost impossible to use with a wheelchair. Store was not well equipped, Dog park was nice. We won't be back. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

Sites are snug but separated with shrubs for some privacy. Each unisex restroom was a separate room with a shower. These rooms were very nicely tiled & were very clean. There is a shower token machine but no longer in use. Wi-fi was very weak in the back of the campground. All the regular/expected activities of KOA campgrounds. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a typical KOA; over priced for what you get. Unfortunately, everything else in this area is not good so I elected to pay the inflated price and stay here. This is a decent park, but not worth $46 with the KOA Value Kard discount. This was for a 30 amp site as all 50 amp sites were already reserved. The staff was friendly. There is a nice little store on site with camping supplies, groceries, and drinks. The entire park is gravel. The sites are level and have adequate width. They have bushes planted between sites to provide additional privacy. The pull-through sites are not overly long so our 40' motor home and toad completely filled it plus some. There is cable service with 23 stations. There is WiFi, but the signal was so weak it wasn't usable. Several of the sites have nice shade trees on them. This might be a problem if you want to use your satellite dish. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

Stayed here a couple months without a tow vehicle. The view of the mountains are great. Laundry had normal size machines, but had very big dryers so made it very cheap to use. Was in the very back of park so WIFI wasn't the best. Staff was very nice! Have lots of things for the kids to do. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The property is experiencing issues with employee turnover so somethings were not arranged as discussed for our group. Management was quick to rectify our issues as much as possible. We really appreciated being able to use the rec room. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

The campground was in very good shape. Our site was level and because it is off season we didn't have anyone near us. The only problem was the closeness to the highway due to the sound but it was also a good thing for travel around the area. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Calico Ghost Town is a neat trip and very close by. Make sure you pay the extra 2.50 for a tour of the mine.

The only real complaint is the the campground is right next to the freeway, so it is noisy. On the other hand, that freeway location makes for an easy in and out to get where you are going. The campground is clean; sites are fairly level, and there is vegetation between sites. Sites and roads are gravel. Hookups worked well and were very convenient. There is a rec room with games, a pool, a store, and a playground. It's a really decent place to stay with the drawbacks being that you are in the desert and next to the freeway. Other than that, the campground is great! We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

We have been going to this campground on and off since 1988. This KOA is under new management and they have really made some improvements. The "antiques" which used to be in front of the office have been moved to the back of the campground where they put in large community fire rings. There is a new fenced in dog run with a picnic table and umbrella. Check-in was quick and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We were assigned a shady pull-through (which we requested on our reservations). The pool area has been upgraded with shade shelters, hammocks, and a barbecue grill. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Travel Trailer.
