Reinforce rules at the pool/hot tub. When the store is closed optional to buy Ice at the Ranger station. At check-in ask us about rental location is okay before paying in case we would like a preferably unit. Otherwise we liked Rancho Oso. Thank you!

Place was beautiful and well tended. We arrived to have no power, due to forest fires. While that can be expected, due to the area, a quick email prior to our arrival would've prepared us better. Especially when they knew about the outage.

Nice way to slow the pace down and have some nostalgia for the land and nature. I enjoyed walking around the property, meeting some neighbors and having the kids go to visit the animals. Clean premises!

We rnjoyed our stay at Rancho Oso. The staff was very nice. I would like to be able to reserve a site I want when I make a reservation. Some of the tiers have a bigger drop off and with my little kids, I would like knowing that we got one of the safer sites with a smaller drop off.

The staff works hard to keep the grounds looking as good as possible in such severe drought conditions. It was very quiet and peaceful for our visit which is just what we sought. Yes, the entrance road is tough for big rigs but autos just have to take it slow.

I am sitting in my campsite enjoying an evening cocktail on my patio. Just looking at the mountains thinking about visiting Solvang tomorrow. The sun is slowly sinking in the west as it begins to cool down for the evening. Nothing is better than this!

Well maintained grounds, only negative I have is narrow road leading to facility. If you have a big rig and you meet another one coming in different direction it is very scary. Thanks Connie.neeley@gmail.com 559-625-6759

The road in is a challenge the first few times especially when being evacuated at night for the Rey fire. 34 ft rig towing the pickup. Always pray for no oncoming traffic when on that road. Please improve the road

We looked forward to meeting our parents in Santa Barbra for several months. But the location was a big disappointment. The cabin was too expensive for what we received, no need to pay extra for linen as we thought we needed to, or bring our own. The horse rides were booked, every event cost extra, the pool area had fly's... More

Nicely maintained property. Especially liked the spacing/layout of the RV pads with the tiered arrangement. Good hiking trails with plenty to see and variety of terrain. Staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful.
