My family and I chose to stay here mainly because we were planning on visiting the Sequoia Kings Canyon Parks, and this seemed like the best bet, plus from their website it seemed like a very nice shaded place (which with the high temperatures that Visalia/Fresno is known for is a must!).
We arrived and saw that the 2 sites that we were assigned had practically no shade at all, when I asked at the front desk if it were at all possible to at least move one if our units to a more shaded area the Asian lady who runs the place said "No, if you don't like it you can leave" WOW! What customer service, she was rude and no help in making the customer feel welcomed at all.
The pool has no shading only 4 tables with umbrellas, and a scorching hot ground. The pool for most of our stay was filthy! The water so bad and cloudy that- I kid you not- you could hardly see your feet! The last week we stayed (almost 4 in total) the pool was finally cleaned.
The pictures that are on the website show green and flowers, expecting you to think you are heading to a nice setting; nope, industrial buildings and ghetto looking houses surround this KOA.
The staff (other then the Asian couple that runs the place) are all nice and try to be very helpful and accommodating.
Internet is hardly existent.
This place is ok if you are just dropping by for the night, like I saw many campers doing. NOT for long term stay though.
Won't be coming back here again, that's for sure.
