This is a clean KOA set in the midst of beautiful hills and countryside, near a lake. If you want to see and hear wildlife, this is the place to be. We even saw a bear paw print on our car the next day after our first night's stay! The campground is hilly, so traveling to and from the bath house involved an uphill climb, and the paths and roads can be slippery. Kids love jumping on the jumping pillow - we were there during week days and a crowd of kids always gathered there. The staff and management are very friendly and helpful. The only drawbacks are: the campground is still in development, so construction equipment noise during the day disturbed its otherwise tranquil setting. The swimming pool was left untreated and was not open - they are going to build a new one. Be very careful to take all food and bags out of your car or vehicle and keep it in your cabin - this camp site gets regular visits from bears. Try a yurt for a different camping experience. And for a hot breakfast - Manager Pam recommends Tina's Restaurant in Santa Margarita - excellent food!
