“Better than alternative in town”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2010

Park was a field next to an industrial park. The staff not very helpful. Amenities geared to the ease of the staff instead of to the guests. Laundry required a "pre-paid debit card with a deposit" only available from the office which had limited hours...if you come in late or leave early, you are out of luck.

The staff "claimed" not to know about an RV repair place between park and closest grocery store less than 2 miles away. Instead, they tried to steer us to a RV dealership for needed repairs. BTW, RV Express in Visalia was GREAT!!!!!

The only good thing to say about the KOA is that the only other "listed" RV park in town was a mobile home park with a few spaces for RVs.

We stay at a different KOA each year. This one was by far the worst. Open dumpsters, dusty roads, and clueless staff. Can't do anything about the location (it's surrouded by farm and industry--Nitrate warnings posted for the water) But the staff doesn't seem to have a clue about managing activities. It was sold out Fri and Sat for a charity weekend. At the pancake breakfast, TWO PEOPLE were serving, campers walking away in disgust. Ice cream social? Again 2 elderly people trying to scoop through rock solid tubs of ice cream. To top things off, staff parked their golf carts in the prime seating area of the musical performance, while their guests either had to stand or sit on fallen logs. I don't know what possessed them to do this: entitlement? arrogance? Dozens of folding chairs were never put out.

Our cabin was nice, new, with great AC.

We stopped here on our way to Anaheim. The campground was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. They have a pool for those hot days, and it was very hot when we were there. They also have a playroom for the kids, which was nice. Our only problem was we had tons of red ants at our site and we all got bit. We would most likely stay here again, but next time we bring out the ant replent.

We chose this KOA as a stop off on our way to Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park. The location is away from the city but nothing to brag about. The camp itself is well maintained. The sites are easy drive-thru with picnic table & fire ring. There are also cabins & tent sites available. The pool & bathrooms are kept clean. There is a nice laundry room as well as a store with just about anything a camper might need last minute. The staff are very friendly & helpful. We experienced quiet nights & carefree lodging in our trailer. We didn't have any kids with us this time, but there is a game room that seemed to stay busy when there were kids in the campground. There are plenty of places to eat in Visalia from every variety & price range. We found it to be too far from the national park to commute so we moved to a national campground in the park then returned to this KOA to recharge & rest. We'll probably return here next time we come this way. Nothing fancy, but clean, convenient & a good value ($40/night w/ hook-ups).
