We had a great family vacation with friends cabin camping at Rancho Oso but wish the amenities were open. We did however check out the pool which was nice. Looking forward to coming back when things are operational again.

The location is perfect to getaway from the city. Our family stayed in a cabin which was nice and cozy. The place was has stove, refrigerator, dishes, pots, & pans to use. A grill and picnic table outside the cabin.Their country store & restaurant is closed due to Covid and there aren't any other stores or restaurants nearby. The closest place is approx 30 mins to Santa Barbara & Solvang. I enjoyed getting away.

The overall experience is great. A few minor Issues at hand. No WiFi sucks. No cell service sucks. And I lost 8 and 5 dollars worth of quarters on the soda machine and washer machine respectfully. These issues were to be fixed the time at rancho oso would be the best experience one could have camping. I still enjoy my time though. Thanks thousand trails and rancho oso staff for an amazing outing.

We didn't take our RV for the week long minivacation but rather stayed in a very comfortable and clean cottage. It had 1 bedroom, a small room with 2 bunkbeds, complete bathroom and 'kitchen' with full size refrigerator, microwave and countertop oven/broiler. The facilities were closed but areas for outside games were available. Santa Barbara is a short drive away and we also visited Aliso Beach and Morro Rock/Beach.

I have stayed at this preserve many times. I am not even sure we are calling them "preserves" any more. Preserving the camping lifestyle. This is one of my favorite places to stay. Close enough to Santa Barbara, but still waaaay back in the woods. The Cold Spring Tavern restaurant nearby is my favorite restaurant of all time. I have Verizon and the signal is tough to get, but is good enough mostly. The WiFi at the Jamison Lodge works well. I remember when there was an actual river flowing and hope to see it happening again. I probably just come the wrong time of year. Tons and tons of cattails to cut and take home down by the river. Lots of hiking to do, but know that the Waterfall Trail is tight, hilly, narrow and has an elevation climb up and down along the way. We started towards dusk and realized that we needed to turn back before it got dark.There is a video on YouTube labeled WATERFALLS SANTA BARBARA CA. RANCHO OSO THOUSAND TRAILS RESORT that will show you what the hike is like. Now that I've seen it, I wish I had finished the hike. LOL. Well, there's always next year. Come, enjoy! The one think I pointed out to my friend was you don't hear, sirens, trains or helicopters the whole time you are there and that is unusual for us. Just wind. Love it!
