You just can’t beat the expansive pasture and mountain views of Rancho Oso! We do a two night covered wagon adventure with our grandkids that is a delight to children’s senses. Animals, infinite outdoor play, a pool, twinkly night skies. We adore it!

Please see other comments. Shower didn't work in cabin. Grill didn't work, had to use neighbors. Lock was broken on cabin. 1 pool good, 1 pool green and unmaintained. Horse area ok. Could use some sand on ground to soften and buy new rakes, rakes were broken. Otherwise beautiful place and trails.

We were looking for a nice getaway but the joke was on us because we did not realize that meant no cell reception and slow Wi-Fi in only 1 spot on the property. Great way to disconnect in a cabin with the family without completely being in the outdoors for families with little ones or even couples. They have a cleanup after yourself or fee policy so I think that is why I found a dorito and fruit loop under the couch when doing our cleanup even though we had neither, but we did track in some dirt we cleaned off the main area that was otherwise spotless when we arrived. We were fortunate enough to not have neighbors for a day and only when we left saw a few people. Other than that it is peaceful even though when we walked around we noticed some spots being more unruly than others. Just know that even though this place is close and is at a higher elevation than Santa Barbara it has its own weather which is generally warmer than the rest of Santa Barbara, plan accordingly. Enjoy!

Rancho Oso has a lot to offer families. We appreciate the availability of rental units. We stayed in a cottage this year and were quite comfortable. We enjoyed some hiking, swimming, and pingpong. The weather was warm but cooled nicely during the evening. We hope to come again next spring.

Rancho Oso is one of our favorite campgrounds. There are so many things to do in the area including hiking, biking, wine tasting, Solvang, and Santa Barbara all all fairly close by. Of course, the campground has some nice hiking and two pools. We love coming here!!

Stayed in a motorhome during July of 2022. The swimming pools were very clean. The sites are located on a hill. The swimming pools and store are at the bottom of the hill. Getting there is easy. Walking back is not so easy. The incline is so steep, riding a bike up the hill is next to impossible. My wife and I enjoyed our stay and we do intend to go back.

Overall, we had a comfortable stay. Just don't understand how getaways get booked. It appears people must be requesting certain getaways, because we didn't do that, and they said ones we wanted were booked, even though when we arrived, no one was in them???

This survey is too long. Should provide questions regarding better prizing for members. Survey should not require to complete a minimum of two hundred characters. Time is value and this survey doesn’t consider my time.
